My daughter was tricked while chatting with her friends into going into some link that tricked her into believing there was a photo of her...That is when the problems started on March 3rd. The rest of the evening my Norton was blocking stuff left and right and I finally got off line and ran a full system Virus Scan. Looking at my Security History the first thing that seem to get in was bawtoz.exe made 2 mods to windows startup; then dsc0020090301-gif[1].exe made 3 mods to windows startup; then lovzz.exe made 5 mods to Internet Explorer; then Spaorz made 2 mods to Windows Start-Up; Suspicious.Vundo etc...OKAY...Running the scans appeared to be knocking out the following 1st Scan W32.IRCbot, Backdoor.IRC.bot, Trojan.vundo, Backdoor.irc.bot. Ran another Scan 30 minutes later W32.IRCbot, Trojan.pandex. The problem is the computer seems to run okay but everytime I log into the Admin Account I get the following Error Message: A nonsense string of letters.exe has enccountered a problem and needs to close. The string of letters seems to have somewhat of a repeating pattern to them but they change every time I log on. It happens every time I log on. Interesting thing is that I logged on to my kids account and it starts up fine. I have to say I do not seem to have any performance problems and the computer seems to be running fine on both accounts...Just very nervous. What is going on? Did another scan tonight and Norton removed W32.spybot.worm again.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (v1.34) and save it to your desktop.

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.

You could help support MBAM and buy the protection in the full version

https://store.malwarebytes.org/342/?scope=c...&cart=29945


http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php


For consumers and personal use, it is a one time fee of $24.95.
