Hi Dutchboy45,

I am having the same problem as you. As I was writing to you about it, it happened again. I switched over to another of my computers. The problem has really stopped me using that computer, and most all my work is on there. "Scanworldonline" keeps signing itself in, and when I try to either "X out" the page, or "Cancel" whatever is trying to come in, it comes in anyway, takes over the entire screen, interrupting anything I am doing, and does a scan of my system.

This is horrible!!!! I am ready to copy over all my files, and toss the system out the window!

I hope that someone knows a way to get it out.

I live in the US. I am going to ask a friend who lives in another part of the country what she might recommend. I will get back to you.

hang in there,...ehhhh....me too. :thumbsup:


ps. the title of the scan page is "Antimalwaresuite2009"
I ran my AVG, Spybot, and CCleaner, but "www.http://scanworldonline.com" keeps loading onto my desktop on it's own. I get a Threat indication from my AVG anti-virus software, but it can't fix it, and the only option is to put in the Virus Vault. It indicated a path: [ C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\EL2UFU2Z\ ], but it isn't there where it says it is. ?????

The process of cleaning your computer may require you to temporarily disable some security programs. If you are using SpyBot Search and Destroy, please refer to Note 2 at the bottom of this page.

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.
-- 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.

Note 2:
-- 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. To disable these programs, please view this topic: How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs

I resolved the problem. Thanks for responding.

A friend who is a whiz told me to download A-Squared Free:

Before using it, I scanned with my AVG, Spybot, and CCleaner. I scanned with AVG while the threat kept coming in.

The A-Squared Free seemed to be superior in many ways. I loaded it onto both of my Gateway XP's. It found and isolated 129 undetected threats on one, and 165 threats on the other. I also defragged, and both systems seem to be running a lot better.

huggs guys!
