Dear Members,

Begin of december I executed an exe file downloaded from the web which infected my laptop.
It chaged the desktop backgroud to a HTML page, with a flashing message saying that there was an infection. It disabled the task manager and infected explorer. Since then I managed to restore the taskbar and the desktop backround, but other problems persisted.

1) From time to time my computer will start with no icons nor taskbar.
2) After I open Mozilla or IE,
- I get pop ups suggesting to buy Antivirus2009 (which I know is a bogus product),
- my browser oftens opens spontaneously a newwindoe with a page like google, which can't be closed except from the task manager, nor sent to background,
- other popup show up as transparencies saying my computer is infected and I should buy some other bogus antivirus

On my machine I have McAfee antivirus, but it did not help. From time to time it will pop up with a warning message that some trojan has been detected and removed, but it is not remving the problem at throot.

Since then I tried some free and commercial antispyware (Search&Destroy, WindowsMediaDefender, VundoFix, SmitFraudFix, SpySweeper). Windows media defender made things worse, since it completely froze my computer and since then I can no longer use the Hibernate feature. The computer succesfully goes in hibernation, but after a random interval of time (4-10 minutes), it resumes spontaneously. This happens despite the fact that the WOL feature is disabled in the bios, and the network cable is diconnected. Do you have any idea about what could be causing this?

I uninstalled Search&Destroy, MediaDefender and Windows SP3, and restored an old PC configuration. None of these has helped. All problems persist.
The copy of SpySweeper I purchased is not helping much either. Every time I start the PC it detects again Virtumonde (it does not detect Smitraud and SJuan which were instead detected by SearchAndDestroy).

Unfortunatly I deleted the file which infected me, but there are chances I may be able to find d download it again, if that could be of help.

Do you think there is any chance to get the computer up and running, without rebuilding it? Since it is an-ex company laptop, I have lot of nice applications of which I no longer have the installation disks.

Thanks a lot.

Best regards,

Please consider this case closed. I decided to try one more time and downloaded MalwareBytes. It did the magic (I think), and I am back to the old merry way.
