Hi. Reformatted PC a week ago.

1) Reformat
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

Browser entry
Bookmark(firefox: name(default))
cpv.jsp (http://url.adtrgt.com/cpv.jsp?p=110219&ip=71.43.199.26&url=www.google.com%2Fsearch%3Fq%3Dform&selectedKeyword=ron&selectedListingId=7293783&default=http%3A%2F....) 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.

Have you tried running your scans in "Safe Mode"?

Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune & save it to your desktop. DO NOT use yet.
alternate download link

Then download and install SUPERAntiSpyware Free
  • Double-click SUPERAntiSypware.exe and use the default settings for installation.
  • An icon will be created on your desktop. Double-click that icon to launch the program.
  • If it will not start, go to Start > All Prgrams > SUPERAntiSpyware and click on Alternate Start.
  • If asked to update the program definitions, click "Yes". If not, update the definitions before scanning by selecting "Check for Updates". (If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here. Double-click on the hyperlink for Download Installer and save SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to your desktop. Then double-click on SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to install the definitions.)
  • In the Main Menu, click the Preferences... button.
  • Click the "General and Startup" tab, and under Start-up Options, make sure "Start SUPERAntiSpyware when Windows starts" box is unchecked.
  • Click the "Scanning Control" tab, and under Scanner Options, make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):
    • Close browsers before scanning.
    • Scan for tracking cookies.
    • Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
  • Click the "Close" button to leave the control center screen and exit the program.
  • Do not run a scan just 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".

Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
  • Under Main "Select Files to Delete" choose: Select All.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • If you use Firefox browser click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
    If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • If you use Opera browser click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
    If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
Note: On Vista, "Windows Temp" is disabled. To empty "Windows Temp" ATF-Cleaner must be "Run as an Administrator".

Scan with SUPERAntiSpyware as follows:
  • Launch the program and back on the main screen, under "Scan for Harmful Software" click Scan your computer.
  • On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
  • On the right, under "Complete Scan", choose Perform Complete Scan and click "Next".
  • After the scan is complete, a Scan Summary box will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click "OK".
  • Make sure everything has a checkmark next to it and click "Next".
  • A notification will appear that "Quarantine and Removal is Complete". Click "OK" and then click the "Finish" button to return to the main menu.
  • If asked if you want to reboot, click "Yes" and reboot normally.
  • To retrieve the removal information after reboot, launch SUPERAntispyware again.
    • Click Preferences, then click the Statistics/Logs tab.
    • Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
    • If there are several logs, click the current dated log and press View log. A text file will open in your default text editor.
    • Please copy and paste the Scan Log results in your next reply.
  • Click Close to exit the program.
If you cannot boot into safe mode, then perform your scans in normal mode.

mvps.org is no longer recommending Spybot S&D or Ad-Aware due to poor testing results. See here - (scroll down and read under Freeware Antispyware Products).

Further, most people don't understand Spybot's TeaTimer or how to use it and that feature can cause more problems than it's worth. TeaTimer monitors changes to certain critical keys in Windows registry but does not indicate if the change is normal or a modification made by a malware infection. The user must have an understanding of the registry and how TeaTimer works in order to make informed decisions to allow or deny the detected changes. Additionally, TeaTimer may conflict with other security tools which do a much better job of protecting your computer and even prevent disinfection of malware by those tools.

Thanks for the reply and information. I did as you asked, unfortunately the scan came back with no results. I am going to stop pursuing the issue at the moment. Thanks again.
