This site is literally a cluster F (making it hard to find anything on my own). Sure maybe those who are on here often can find stuff but not those with computer problems that come here JUST for help.

All I need is a list of which programs to use to get a complete virus, trojan, tracker, spy etc. Seems pretty basic but yet there seems to be no where easy to find this info. please point me in the right direction.

also I keep getting a zone alarm note saying "The firewall has blocked Internet access to your computer (Telnet) from 85.175.27.61 (TCP Port 4723) [TYCP Flags: S]" althought the IP changes. What is up with that?

so basically 2 questions:
1-how to get started running scans (have avg 8.0 and found nothing)
2-what is this zone alarm note telling me and what can I do about it?

Thanks for helping me with this frustrating time. My PC is almost unusable.

ps just got note from zone alarm again. this is kinda freaky.

Michael

Some types of malware will disable MBAM and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it.

  • Before saving any of your security programs, rename them first. For example, before you save Malwarebytes', rename it to something like MBblah.exe and then click on Save and save it to your desktop. Same thing after you install it. Before running it, rename the main executable file first

    Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file and change the .exe extension to .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr and then double-click on it to run.

    If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files, right-click on mbam.exe and change the .exe as noted above. Then double-click on it to run..
  • Another work around is by not using the mouse to install it, Just use the arrow keys, tab, and enter keys.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
  • 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 or here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • 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 you're using other security programs that detect registry changes, they may alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please permit the program to allow the changes.

Please include the following in your reply:

2-what is this zone alarm note telling me and what can I do about it?
This is really freaking me out as well. looks like someone is trying to hack me or connect to my computer.(?)



Thank you for this start. Here is the log:

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.36

Windows 5.1.2600 Service Pack 2

This seems to have found nothing....
I have several problems one of them being the computer (MS Explorer) freezes up all the time.
For example anytime I try to right click it takes from 1-15 seconds for menus to come up and many times it just flashes for a second and then goes away. Also seems to take forever to show the contents of folders, even simple folders like 'My Computer'.

The freezes may not be related to malware, also, when looking up the IP address trying to access your machine, I can't find any results in google so I can't tell you what it may be.

Please download DrWeb-CureIt and save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.

Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Scan with Dr.Web CureIt as follows:
  • Double-click on drweb-cureit.exe to start the program.
  • Cancel any prompts to download the latest CureIt version and click Start.
  • At the prompt to "Start scan now", click Ok. Allow the setup.exe/driver to load if asked by any of your security programs.
  • The Express scan will automatically begin.
    (This is a short scan of files currently running in memory, boot sectors, and targeted folders).
  • If prompted to download the Full version Free Trial, just ignore and click the X to close the window.
  • If an infected object is found, you will be prompted to move anything that cannot be cured. Click Yes to All.
  • When complete, click Select All, then choose Cure > Move incurable.
    (This will move any detected files to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if they can't be cured)
  • Now put a check next to Complete scan to scan all local disks and removable media.
  • In the top menu, click Settings > Change settings, and UNcheck "Heuristic analysis" under the "Scanning" tab, then click Ok.
  • Back at the main window, click the green arrow "Start Scanning" button on the right under the Dr.Web logo.
  • When the scan is complete, a message will be displayed at the bottom indicating if any viruses were found.
  • Click "Yes to all" if asked to cure or move the file(s) and select "Move incurable".
  • In the top menu, click file and choose save report list.
  • Save the DrWeb.csv report to your desktop.
  • Exit Dr.Web Cureit when done.
  • Important! Reboot your computer because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
  • After reboot, post the contents of the log from Dr.Web in your next reply. (You can use Notepad to open the DrWeb.cvs report)
NOTE: This scanner takes quite a while, so don't be worried if it takes some time to finish.

thanks. I will do that now, but a bit more info on the attempted access. it has been several different IPs but one of them ended with this
broad.cq.cq.dynamic.163.data.com.cn

but come to think I recently got phone through my cable line, perhaps is has to do with that?

anyway I will DL, reboot to safe and do scan.
Will post back when done. thanks again.

I had misunderstood the instructions. this log is just before

# Click "Yes to all" if asked to cure or move the file(s) and select "Move incurable".

I then selected all and clicked cure->move incurable.
I tried to resave the log but during renaming it did not save correctly.
or maybe this is the correct file. hell I am not sure.

That looks right.
What problems are you still having?

Please run a BitDefender Online Scan
  • Click I Agree to agree to the EULA.
  • Allow the ActiveX control to install when prompted.
  • Click Click here to scan to begin the scan.
  • Please refrain from using the computer until the scan is finished. This might take a while to run, but it is important that nothing else is running while you scan.
  • When the scan is finished, click on Click here to export the scan results.
  • Save the report to your desktop so you can post it in your next reply.

not sure how much of my problems still exist. MS Explorer still seems slow, like in mud at times but might be better. I have not had much time to test it. That last scan took a while.

I will run bitdefender now.

Thanks for all your help so far. your directions have been very easy to follow. :thumbsup:

tried to run bitdefender. took all night and looked almost done but then froze up.
MS Explorer is like mud.

anyway I am not sure how bitdefender "not responding" will effect the scan. I did not get a report.
perhaps I should scan again..... and take all day again.

seems I should be pretty clean by now?

I am using moz FF version 2 still. could this be some part of a memory hog causing MS explorer to be sluggish?
Could it be registry issues? could it be over heating.

Thanks again for your help. you have been great.

SUPERanti-spyware by default sets itself to open on startup. To disable this, right click the bug icon in the lower right side of your screen (in the taskbar) and select "preferences/options" then uncheck "start Superanti-spyware when windows starts"


You seem to be using Keygens/cracks
The practice of using cracking tools, keygens, warez or any pirated software is not only considered illegal activity but it is a serious security risk.

Cracking applications are used for illegally breaking (cracking) various copy-protection and registration techniques used in commercial software. These programs may be distributed via Web sites, Usenet, and P2P networks.

...warez and crack web pages are being used by cybercriminals as download sites for malware related to VIRUT and VIRUX. Searches for serial numbers, cracks, and even antivirus products like Trend Micro yield malcodes that come in the form of executables or self-extracting files...quick links in these sites also lead to malicious files. Ads and banners are also infection vectors...

Keygen and Crack Sites Distribute VIRUX and FakeAV

...warez/piracy sites ranked the highest in downloading spyware...just opening the web page usually sets off an exploit, never mind actually downloading anything. And by the time the malware is finished downloading, often the machine is trashed and rendered useless.

...One of the most aggressive and intrusive of all bad websites on the Internet are serial, warez, software cracking type sites...they sneak malware onto your system...Where do trojan viruses originate? One of the biggest malware distributors on the Internet are serial/warez/code cracking sites.

Bad Web Sites: Malware

When you use these kind of programs, be forewarned that some of the worst types of malware infections can be contracted and spread by visiting crack, keygen, warez and other pirated software sites. In many cases, those sites are infested with a smörgåsbord of malware and an increasing source of system infection. Those who attempt to get software for free can end up with a computer system so badly damaged that recovery is not possible and it cannot be repaired. When that happens there is nothing you can do besides reformatting and reinstalling the OS.


I would highly recommend you update to Firefox 3, it fixes several security exploits.

What other problems are you having?

my biggest problem is most things MS explorer does takes for ever. ie when I open a folder, there are times when it will take 30-60 seconds for the icons to show. many times when I right click it will be 15-30 seconds before anything happens and when it does it comes up for a split second and then goes away. I usually can right click again and it will work right away.


Thanks for all the info. I do know pirated stuff is a higher risk of infections of all sorts. As far as keygens and what not, yes I have tons of that crap, most of it I really should just deleted.... programs I have tried and did not like, or are now obsolete.... my big problem is I do not know what most of the bleep is and currently it is so painfully slow to navagate folders (explorer) that I can't get much done.
In short it seems there is not enough memory, but most times I check the PC is only running up to 70%..... that is unless FF has been on a while. then it can rocket to 100% non stop, total freeze - worst when my wife plays the facebook games that seem to run a pile of script.



Just a question of theory....
IF I was able to get my files off this computer to do a system restore would this help if I have tons of registry issues?

1- I am unable to do this now
2- IF and when I were to do this I would NOT keep most of my downloaded programs that have keygens etc.



side note - IF the companies would make better programs and not so many for each thing AND backup and fix the older versions I would not find the need to DL pirated programs to try them out. There is no way in hell I would pay for programs unless I have tried them out and of all the programs I have tried out there are VERY few that are worth buying.
rant over.




so I guess in short my problem might be bad enough that explorer is unstable I have had the blue screen saying pysical memory dump a few times.

and my dvd drive LONG ago just decided it would no longer read CDRW disks.

By a system restore, do you mean a reformat?, which deletes all data off of the hard drive. If so, yes, a reformat would fix all of your issues.

If you have memory problems, RAM is incredibly cheap now and it may be worth investing in a few gigs of it.
