okay to start, thank you, for this website, because it has been my guideline for the past few days.
after reading basically all of your threads i have managed to get rid of alot

i was relying on the trend micro antivirus which is up to date and so on,
yet when iw as scanning it wasnt catching anything,

im an active gamer. and after a while i was noticing that my disconnection rates were indeed getting higher.
and now basicaly after 5minutes of being on the game it disconncts. thinking it was the game i reinstalled it
and i know that my system surpasses the requirements of the game.

then i started noticing the fact that i cant access my taskmanager
and that my system restore wont work either.

AND THEN MY INTERNET WOULD DROP. as in it would suddenly not work and then next minute it would come back.
and my keyboard actually went insane on me once when i was scanning, ide press d while typing in the url and sumthing else would open etc.


application error

the instruction at "0x00b72d7e" referenced memory at "0x00b9134". the memory could not be "read"
click OK to terminate the programe

that comes up often, lets say im playing a game in a mini window, and then i wanna close something in the background like my ym, that comes up.

so i downloaded the anniversary edition of AVG and had it updated and it managed to find 4 more viruses (such as the 1 keeping my homepage on porn)
so i managed to get rid of that, i also did a scan with adaware, and it came up with 1 infected typed as a cookie.
so i remembered seeing a moderate here tell a guy about malwarebytes (mbam) or w/e

so i downloaded it, and it found 4 "hijack" viruses or "things" whatever you wanna call it.


it was successfully removed from my computer,


i have one of those logitech speakers that have an lcd screen which can display cpu usage and ram usage,
and even if im just sitting on desktop not doing anything, the cpu would randomly spike, every other second.

this site has been a BLEEPING help to me. massively, especially since because of this site alone my knowledge of computers has grown.

thanks i hope you guys can get back to me

Hello perhaps there is something there. Sometimes you need to run another tool,so let's please run these.
Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune & save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
  • Under Main "Select Files to Delete" choose: Select All.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • If you use Firefox browser click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
    If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • If you use Opera browser click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
    If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
Note: On Vista, "Windows Temp" is disabled. To empty "Windows Temp" ATF-Cleaner must be "Run as an Administrator".

Now scan with MBAM:
Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (v1.32) and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
If you have a previous version of MBAM, remove it via Add/Remove Programs and download a fresh copy.
  • 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. Alternatively, you can update through MBAM's interface from a clean computer, copy the definitions (rules.ref) located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from that system to a usb stick or CD and then copy it to the infected machine.
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 using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.
