Hi. Reformatted PC a week ago.
2) Turn on windows firewall
3) Update windows xp via windows update
4) Install hijackthis, spybot s&d, avg, malbytes
In the end, browsing a few 'grey' zone websites probably infected my computer. The result is this:
5) Spybot 'check for problems' gives: NNC.MGRS
) and it goes on and on to the edge of my screen.
The issue is that I can let spybot 'remove' it by clicking 'fix selected problems', however it doesn't work. If I let it 'fix' it, and scan IMMEDIATELY after, NNC.MGRS shows up again.
I ran combofix, admittedly without shutting down AVG's windows processes, and a subsequent spybot check showed nothing.
A few days of browsing digg and I am back with NNC.MGRS.
What is this? Is it literally a book mark? If so which one? Or is it hiding as a bookmark? Where is it? How can I get more information about this from spybot? The logs simply show it 'found' something, and it doesn't even show the entire... whatever.
Where am I getting this? What are the odds that browsing websites give me the exact same... malware? Is it simply because there is a hole in my system that NNC.MGRS just happens to exploit?
What is going on?
I tire of the internet. I am tired of malware.
Any help would be appreciated.
