This afternoon, when I was browsing, I opened a window, and immediately got the message "You may already be infected with a virus", and something about antivirus 360(I think). I closed the window, ran a full scan with avg free, which found nothing. I didn't click on anything, or download anything, just immediately left the site. Do I still need to worry? Is there something else I should be doing? Thanks

Hi sherrylynne,

Here is some information on your infection: Antivirus 360

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.
  • Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
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.

Right now I have Ad-aware free, avg free, and window spyware/malware. Will any of these interfere with mbam?

They shouldn't. The only think I know of is SpyBot's Teatimer feature.

By "copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply", I assume you mean here. So here it is:

Welcome back

That was quite a log. Please rerun Malwarebytes and post a fresh log. I am looking to see what is left. Also run SDFix. Please print out and follow these instructions: "How to use SDFix". <- This program is for Windows 2000/XP ONLY.
When using this tool, you must use the Administrator's account or an account with "Administrative rights"
  • Disconnect from the Internet and temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any real time protection programs before performing a scan.
  • When done, the SDFix report log will open in notepad and automatically be saved in the SDFix folder as Report.txt.
  • If SDFix is unable to run after rebooting from Safe Mode, run SDFix in either Mode, and type F, then press Enter for it to finish the final stage and produce the report.
  • Please copy and paste the contents of Report.txt in your next reply.
  • Be sure to renable you anti-virus and and other security programs before connecting to the Internet.
-- If the computer has been infected with the VirusAlert! malware warning from the clock and the Start Menu icons or drives are not visible, open the SDFix folder, right-click on either the XP_VirusAlert_Repair.inf or W2K VirusAlert_Repair.inf (depending on your version of Windows) and select Install from the Context menu. Then reboot to apply the changes.

I was reading through the SDFix, and can do what is listed, but I have no idea how to disable script blocking! I went through the security zone, and advanced zone, but can't find anything marked "script blocking". Remember- computer illiterate" here! Little words, and please speak slowly, and clearly :thumbsup: ! Thanks.

Hi sherrylynne ~ welcome back...

To disable script blocking, click Start - Run. The Run dialog box will open.
Type services.msc and press enter.
The services utility window will open.
Look for Script Blocking The Default Setting: Automatic
Change that to Disabled. We need to change this back after SDFix is run.
Run SDFix with the above instructions.

Let me know if you have any problems... :thumbsup:

Ok, tried that, still no "script blocking" listed anywhere(I read through everything twice). Anyway, went ahead to do SDFix, and when pressing F8 to start in safe mode, I didn't get the SDFix window, instead I got something called a "Boot Menu". How do I get to the other one, since I'm assuming this should not have happened? I followed the instructions to the letter(to scared of screwing something up not to!) Any ideas? Thanks.

It sounds like you were at the first screen of a safe mode boot. Does it list Safe Mode - Safe Mode with Networking, ..etc... On the screen you were looking at. If so, please highlight safe mode and press enter.
