.........

I've got problem in that IE (ver 7) keeps opening and trying to get to a site called 'antivirusproscanlive.com'. I've got AVG and Malwarebytes but neither of them are coming up with anything that stops it. I've uninstalled IE (I use firefox) but it's still happening!

I'm using windows XP version 2002, service pack 3 with the following Firefox version: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.9.0.7) Gecko/2009021910 Firefox/3.0.7

I've done a search of the site (this one, not the target!) but cant find anything that matches whatever it is I'm infected with!

Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelp!

........... and breathe................

Cheers guys for any help you can give me........

Bri

Oh and just thought of another - my daughter downloaded a beta or some such of MSmessenger or Live! and it's come loaded with something that opens IE prefixed with CiD - Cirlce Dynamics? I cant seem to get rid of that either.

I love computers, me. No, really. :thumbsup:

What version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and database are you using?

Please download and scan with Dr.Web CureIt. Follow the instructions here for performing a scan in "safe mode".

Messenger Plus! Live is an add-on for Microsoft's messaging programs Windows Messenger and MSN Messenger but it is not written by Microsoft. Although the program adds features to MSN Messenger, it comes bundled with an optional Sponsor Program provided by C2Media that adds a trojan infection commonly known as lop.com during its installation. This has been a problem since Messenger Plus! first started including the Sponsor Program with users installing it without understanding what the Sponsor Program is, what it does to a user's system, or the privacy implications involved.

If you were using Messenger Plus! Live and want to continue to use it, then reinstall and do not install the Sponsor after your computer has been cleaned. See How to remove Messenger Plus (C2Media) and How to install Messenger Plus! Live without the Sponsor.

Mmmm, that didn't go well at all! :trumpet:

Things are now even worse than they were! I did the scan as instructed, but - my wife closed down the PC as the scan had finished before I could get to it, but cant tell me what she did with the log - the XP search function cant find it or any '.cvs' files anywhere on my PC so I can't post that up to show you. Then I followed the instructions for getting rid of the rubbish that comes with msgPlus but it wont uninstall - its in the list on the add/remove s/ware box, but clicking on the 'change/remove' button does nothing! :thumbsup: it!

Aaaaaarghhhh! Not a happy teddy! (its taken me over 20 minutes to type this as the gremlins keep opening IE, (even with it disabled via the 'add/remove windows components' function!), over the top of F/Fox and I need to keep clicking in the start bar to keep this window active - frustrating is NOT the word for it!)

[Edit - ] Right, after 6, yes 6, resarts with no changes made at any of them the MsgPlus thing finally decided to let me uninstall it! Computers are wierd. :flowers: [edit]

Rescan again with MBAM (Quick Scan) in normal mode and check all items found for removal. Don't forgot to check for database definition updates through the program's interface (preferable way) before scanning and to reboot afterwards. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. When done, click the Logs tab and copy/paste the contents of the new report in your next reply.

Right, did an update and then scanned again. It didnt find anything! Log as below:

Thing is I'm still infected! I've still got something trying to send me to an anti-spyware site via a fake scan page, but, as luck would have it, I've waited ages for it happen so I can tell you the details, and typically, it's not appearing!

Oh the joy of computing.............
