Windows XP Service Pack 3
Internet Explorer (newest version I assume)
I keep the virus protection up-to-date and run scans frequently. I do download music through uTorrent and surf the net using IE (no porn sites and weird sites).
Was infected with Trojan/Vundo virus a few months ago. Was getting popups and got help from the bleepingcomputer forums. Used combofix and hijack this logs to slowly get the computer running up to par and free of problems for a few months.
Noticed when I tried to update AVG that it wouldn't--got a message that said the website could not be found. I then tried to update Ad-Aware to see if both had problems, and it to gave a similar message. Then opened IE and googled something. Hovered mouse of the result and no website at the bottom. When clicked got a popup. Could enter in website at the top and get the right page; HOWEVER, certain sites would NOT work (get the "this page does not exist" page. bleeping computer, majorgeeks, and other sites that I wanted to go to for help would not work (along with websites for avg, spybot, etc for updates).
Restarted computer and then tried to run Malwarebytes, but it would no longer load. Spybot S&D would also not load. After restarting again, computer would freeze at the Windows XP start page to choose user.
Restarted in safe mode, but Malwarebytes and Spybot still wouldn't load. Not sure what to do at this point. I am now on another computer asking for any advice. I appreciate ANY help I can get and have been MORE than happy with the help I got from bleepingcomputer in the past.
I am now going to download combofix on this computer and put on my flashdrive and follow the directions from bleeping computer. I'll update as soon as I can. Thank you in advance guys!!!
