I was just recently on the internet and downloaded a file that apparently had malware in it. Upon running the file, my cmd prompt.exe opened ten pages and my Internet explorer opened six tabs. I deleted the file amd ran SUPERanti spyware but it did not remove the malware. At least i think it is malware. And i believe that the file was a batch file... The site that continuously opened in my browser was //home.comcast.net/~wolfand (do not go there). Also, 9 new user accounts have been made as a result, any suggestions. Am about to try malwarebytes.

le_killer, What file did you download? Did it send you to the site? Where did you download it from?

Comcast has help forums for it's customers. I would like to inform the admins there of this topic here so it can be investigated. A few more details may be helpful for them.

hey, thanks for viewing, i was trying to download a patch for a videogame and i ran the file like it said, it rendered through my cmd prompt. All was fine until i shut down my computer for the night and today the multiple user accounts were available for my login screen. Then upon logging in, the 10 cmds opened and the repetitive internet browsers. The only way to close the browser was through task manager

Did you find what you thought was a patch from a search engine result?
Did you download it from any particular page/site?
I'll alert the admins now-and I repeat, add anything you think may be pertinent.

It might be some kind of prank because the site you put is actually a JS trap that forces you to click through alerts.
Don't mind me, I'm just lurking.

It is one of those prank things, but what concerns me is the fact that all those windows opened, and you had the unexplained user accounts added.
I'm rethinking my position-I'm not convinced that the site is what caused the open windows and user accounts.
I still don't know HOW that particular one ended up being opened, but your best bet is to run all your malware removal tools.
I will still alert the Comcast admins, just in case.

In the meantime, do a scan with MBAM after updating it and post your findings here.

Also go here

1) You must use Internet Explorer for the scan.
2) If it wants to install a Java or ActiveX control, please allow it.
3) After it updates disable your current antivirus & antimalware realtime protection.
4) When ready to scan, select Settings near the lower left of the window near the help button.
5) Make sure everything is checked.
6) Under "Scan" select "My Computer"
7) Grab a coffee...the scan may take several hours depending on the amount of files and disks in your computer.

When finished select "View Scan Report". Paste the results here.

:thumbsup:

Moving to Am I Infected from Vista .. Follow the Kaspersky scan with MBam..
Next run MBAM:
Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (v1.36) 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.
