Hey guys, its been a while. So my computer started shutting down by itself yesterday and doing weird things, like muting my volume control and the hourglass wouldn't go away by the curser. then popups and ads were on google chrome. So i used Mbam to scan and it found a load of things, however when deleting it stopped and said it was unable to delete some files and gave me a list of a few of them. So I tried looking info up online and finally found some things on your site and another forum to help. I used smitfraud fix and it seemed like it took care of most of the problem, however when I scanned again it still shows up. so I d/l Superantispyware and it scanned, deeply and found these trojans and deleted and quarentined them. so I scan again to check with spyhunter, and it still shows up!! My computer seems fine for now but why is it still showing up?? any thoughts?

A malware scan may detect malware items which have been quarantined by a given program.

Even though the item is quarantined (I really don't understand why users quarantine, rather than just deleting), since it's still on the system...it is detected.

That's my best guess :thumbsup:.

I guess most users forget about the quarantine file. What SAS does when it finds malware is quarantine it and ask you to reboot to get rid of it. After reboot, I normally go into quarantine to see what it is and then delete it. Of course quarantine can be useful in case of a false positive.

Yep, I use SAS also...I delete any quarantined items immediately after they have been removed/quarantined :thumbsup:.

The scan tool puts items in quarantine that it thinks cannot/should not be deleted, or is attached to important files. They are supposedly inoculated, so as not to be contagious. Then you can run your computer to make sure there is no damage and those files are not needed. If they are not, you can go ahead and delete them.
There are many strains out there that are well hidden and self replicate. Most viruses today will take more than one scan tool
