I think I left my firewall down, and might have multiple infections,
so I'm not sure what the the appropriate category to ask is
since I now have security software problems and trojan problems.
I use WinXP SP3.
It started off with Spyware Protect 2009, with popups every 1 - 3 minutes.
That pretty much made it unusable.
It permanantly turned off my Win Security Center alerts, cut Spybot's user interface
off, and won't reinstall, (but TeaTimer seemingly survives) Task Manager was crippled,
and it was sending ~1M blocks out evey few minutes, and more.
AVG currently says I'm clean, (again!), but I get redirects from Google. ..one URL
was about a dozen lines long. Win Defender says I'm clean too. Firefox is bombing,
I'm on Netscape now. Something's sucking my resources.
Suspicious keys like:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\SpybotSD.DisabledFile [disabled startup file]
won't stay away.
So I need to 1) get rid of them, and 2) fix all the damage.
I'm afraid to D/L Malewarebytes for fear it too will be disabled.
My butt hurts and I'm going blind in one eye but seeing double out of the other.
What forum should I go to?
