Hi,

I was on this forum a few weeks ago for problems so I sorta know the drill. I'm running XP SP3. I've run MBAM a few times, SUPERAntiSpyware in safe mode and ATF cleaner. Yet my computer is a total mess...browser is redirecting, fake alerts running at the top of browser pages and all type is red, blue screen of death, various windows (my docs) popping up for no reason, icons on desktop are screwy and the list goes on. I'll post my latest MBAM scan for you, but my last SUPERAntiSpyware scan came up clean. I'm not sure where to go from here. Please help! By the way, first scans did show vundo.

Hello michelle,sometimes we just have to let something else take a look, let's see what the Dr. may see.

Before we start fixing anything you should print out these instructions or copy them to a NotePad file so they will be accessible. Some steps will require you to disconnect from the Internet or use Safe Mode and you will not have access to this page.

Please download DrWeb-CureIt and save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.

Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Scan with Dr.Web CureIt as follows:
  • Double-click on launch.exe to open the program and click Start. (There is no need to update if you just downloaded the most current version
  • Read the Virus check by DrWeb scanner prompt and click Ok where asked to Start scan now? Allow the setup.exe to load if asked by any of your security programs.
  • The Express scan will automatically begin.
    (This is a short scan of files currently running in memory, boot sectors, and targeted folders).
  • If prompted to dowload the Full version Free Trial, ignore and click the X to close the window.
  • If an infected object is found, you will be prompted to move anything that cannot be cured. Click Yes to All.
  • When complete, click Select All, then choose Cure > Move incurable.
    (This will move any detected files to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if they can't be cured)
  • Now put a check next to Complete scan to scan all local disks and removable media.
  • In the top menu, click Settings > Change settings, and UNcheck "Heuristic analysis" under the "Scanning" tab, then click Ok.
  • Back at the main window, click the green arrow "Start Scanning" button on the right under the Dr.Web logo.
  • When the scan is complete, a message will be displayed at the bottom indicating if any viruses were found.
  • Click "Yes to all" if asked to cure or move the file(s) and select "Move incurable".
  • In the top menu, click file and choose save report list.
  • Save the DrWeb.csv report to your desktop.
  • Exit Dr.Web Cureit when done.
  • Important! Reboot your computer because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
  • After reboot, post the contents of the log from Dr.Web in your next reply. (You can use Notepad to open the DrWeb.cvs report)

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

Ok. I ran the scan but, unfortunately, closed the window before saving the log. I apologize...I know I'm not making this any easier for you. But I had 7 objects found...2 cured and the others moved. One was a pe.exe file and another was something like prc tooklit. I ran the scan again and it came up clean. Something possibly of note, during each scan a system shutdown window popped up. It said "windows must now restart because the DCOM Server Process Launcher terminated unexpectedly." But it never actually shut down my computer. Also, whatever I got rid of with the scans didn't change any of the problems I'm experiencing.
