I am new to the forum and I would like to begin by saying how good it feels to know that there is people like you out there.
My pc has been infected for months by the virus nova pasta, I lived with it for long everytime I binned it it would regenerate in about 30 secs and drove me to despair, But it wasn't doing much in terms of funcionality so I never did much about it cause avg wouldn't consider it a virus. Then after downloading Antivir and getting rid of it, Maelstrom was unleashed...
I am badly infected by all kinds of spyware, trojans and everytime I run antivir I find the same files which were deleted last time. I modified the registry heavily and constantly monitor my startup list with msconfig, but to no avail, cause whenever I run Mozilla and do a search I'm hijacked to various sites or dead links, and I can see conter.fasclick in the status bar. It's getting to the point where I am really despaired, I am really freaking angry and wonder who is creating all these viruses out there. I mean, I try to imagine these people in their room creating EVIL, and I think to myself, do they ever ask themselves "is there anything better I could do with my life?", or "Is this all my life amounts to? Creating viruses?" It really is disheartening, I'm sure there's all kinds of reasons behind the "virus making industry", but it's the worst thing I can imagine anyone doing, I understand Terrorists more than I understand this people!! ;)
But then again it's good to know there's people who are willing to put their knowledge for the service of the community like you support guys do.
I read I must wait to be instructed to do so before posting DDS logs, so I'll be waiting.
Nice to meet you,
