I have windows XP professional service pack 3

When I startup my computer (after I type in my password) and everything is loading, this box pops up in the center of my screen that says "load!" on the top and has a red x circle in it. another identical box immediately pops up right next to it, and so on, until they reach the corner of my screen (then I suppose they continue to pop up, just on top of each other). If i try to exit out of these boxes, a new one just pops up as soon as the first one's gone. I ran all my antivirus stuff (malwarebytes antimalware, spybot SD, ADaware, etc.) in safe mode but I'm still having this problem. What is wrong and what can I do?

Also, during my last run through all the antivirus stuff I ran CCleaner, and when I started my computer in regular mode the time was in 24-hour format and my background was gone. Did I delete something I shouldn't have?

Please help!!

CCleaner does have some options that can cause registry issues. Then again, malware can do the same. Please update and rerun Malwarebytes following these steps and post a fresh log.

On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note:
-- If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

-- MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes (like Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere with the fix or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please disable such programs until disinfection is complete or permit them to allow the changes.

Hi, thanks for responding!

I updated and ran Malwarebytes antimalware, it still didn't find anything. Here's the log:

I also was searching around and downloaded SUPERantispyware, and it found a few things. Here's that log:

I deleted everything. I ran all this in safe mode, and then restarted my computer to regular mode, but the problem was not resolved. All the little boxes still popped up.

Thanks!

Please download SmitfraudFix

Double-click SmitfraudFix.exe
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.
