What do Ilomo and similar infections "look like" when they show up in your pc? Got a host of e-mails from drugs.com, apparently because of a pdf (constantly deleted by me) from spiriva in 2006. Some of the information in the spam letter headers seems remarkably contemporary. No, I haven't clicked on any.

Would appreciate links or IPs for lists of current malicious web sites, primarily.

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

I was looking for a verbal description, from memory, not a html copy or anything dangerous like that--for obvious reasons.

How inventive are these programs? Do they mix up recent topics with your contacts, even once, twice, and third removed? I have not clicked on any headers or opened anything up or previewed anything. Like I said, the topics listed, for the spams that had them, were remarkably contemporary. And some were extremely personal, from a site I haven't been to in years (if ever).

Incidentally, I have had problems with e-mail not showing up for a few hours, or even for a few days. For some sites, I will e-mail them, and not get a reply, although I had received a reply shortly before.

Thanks, DaChew, I will try to view some of these report logs.

What should I scan with, and in what order? Should this be moved to another forum or topic?

Unfortunately, I also clicked on a trackback at a legitimate site the other day, may be a tiny url problem. Can't find the trackback page that I copied with the url, either.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (v1.34) and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
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.

I was kicked off as administrator while trying to do the malwarebytes--I think I got it removed, but on restart could not get on as administrator--had reset the password, but the system will not recognize it or recognize the windows smart card password. Haven't been able to use the Norton smart card password since yesterday.



Also got e-mails from two other folks with suggestions about what to do next. I am back to XP (SP1), I think. When I had done a system backup before, it did not do the most current. have a couple Norton back up discs. To make matters worse, the organizer lady re-installed an avanquest recovery disc from when I was infected, also the questionable MS office files disc that I had been given by my sister and never worked for long. I had deleted or reformatted, and then they show up back in the computer, along with the zief piel ip.

Look, I had offered to do my problems as a blog before, because I believe my pc has been literally hijacked, from its reinstall. The pertinent parts could be clipped out and posted as topics.

I have to go see Life on Mars, its the final episode.

Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. and I am not even a Catholic.
