When you say you visited Limewire does that mean you downloaded and installed the software and preceded to engage in P2P activity?

The process of cleaning your computer may require you to temporarily disable some security programs. If you are using SpyBot Search and Destroy, please refer to Note 2 at the bottom of this page.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • 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.
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.

Note 2:
-- MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes (like Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere with the fix or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please disable such programs until disinfection is complete or permit them to allow the changes. To disable these programs, please view this topic: How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs

See I told you I'm not very good with computers I didn't even put the post in the right place and it took me an hour and a half to learn how to post and it was still wrong.Yes I was on Limewire for 1 day and I've been dealing with this issue ever since. I now have a Napster subscription.I made a "MISTAKE" and I recognize that and now Mish Y I'm trying to rectify that.

Garmanma I have Malwarebytes on my computer and have done a full scan I have 3 antispyware programs and a adware program along with a Anti-Virus program and have done a full scan with all of them.Everytime I do another there is more.So I must be missing something.If someone on this site can take me through the steps. Step by Step and resolve my issue I would be more than happy to make a donation to this site.I think this is a great idea for people such as myself who have very limited computer skills to be able to come to a site and get help from volunteers is awesome,put in perspective I just learned how to copy and paste couple of days ago.Do you understand my level now so please anyone who can help me, put yourself in my place like when you first learned how to use a computer that is me now. :trumpet: Thank you for your assistance in advance if anyone can help me :flowers:

Thank You Mark for your QUICK responses and HELP , Sorry for the delay but I'm just trying to figure out how to post the logs as I said I really SUCK on computers but I enjoy using them but they are becoming 2 dangerous for me to use.As I obviously can't keep my information secure enough to were I feel safe.I'm going to try again to post the logs :trumpet: if I can't clean my system I may have to format with my recovery discs and I will not save anything I may need your help on this on how to format without any files being saved as I wouldn't want to reinfect after formatting.I really appreciate your expertise in this matter and really do appreciate your help and time and as I said I would be more than happy to make a donation to this website as I feel this is a wonderful place to be able to go to get people to help you without them being compensated :thumbsup: :flowers: .When you help me please give step by step instructions because I still don't know what most of the button functions are.I really am computer illiterate.But I'm working on it very hard I have never touched a computer in my life up until about 2 years ago I have never used any other operating system other than Vista never used XP this should give you an idea of the kind of help I need I hope I didn't scare you away.AS I really need your help please !!!!Thank You for the help you have already provided Thank You ~ JOHN Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.37

Let's try one more thing to make sure



Please download Dr.Web CureIt, the free version & 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 launch.exe to open the program and click Start. (There is no need to update if you just downloaded the most current version
  • Read the Virus check by DrWeb scanner prompt and click Ok where asked to Start scan now? Allow the setup.exe 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 dowload the Full version Free Trial, 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)

Hi Mark, I downloaded Dr.Web I did everything like you asked actually I print them to follow exactly.I did express scan nothing found and then Complete scan and it took almost 4 hrs. :flowers: when I was done I hit save report list and my computer crashed I got a blue sreen and shut down and went back to safe mode options black screen. :thumbsup: But I did copy what was found I copied the name but forgot to get the file they were in but said deleted it. 2 Trojans found and this is what it said

C:\ program files\adware professional\trojan.fakealert.4386 the second file i forgot to copy first part but looked like this

C:\adware-------------.dll and the rest was trojan.ntrootkit.103

so the 2 trojans were: ( TROJAN.FAKEALERT.4386) ( TROJAN.NTROOTKIT.103)


If you need to see the report I can try again but there must be a compatiability issue do I have to shut down my antivirus when you run this Dr.Web scanner.

I was just thinking is this adware pro a scam,when I got this 5/29/09 it asked for an additional $9.95 they will keep a copy on file for you for any problems well a couple days after I got this when I tried to start program for scan error message came up and said file was corrupted would you like us to retrieve a copy from our server and then it updates and then starts I guess this could be one of those bogus scanners I'm going to investigate this and get my money back. but I need that report list for proof and it is not here I hit save report but it crashed could it still be here on my computer well I'll wait for your response this is getting alittle frustrating every scan we do we find something else will it ever stop.

Let me ask you if I formatt the hard drive and don't save anything and just reinstall my programs start from scratch will my computer be virus ,spyware,malware free Thanks ~ JOHN

Hi Mark, Let me update what I have done since my reply. I uninstalled Adware Professional 5.0 and did another Dr.Web complete Scan.Nothing found but my other Spyware Detector found another tracking cookie.Just 1 I think that Adware Pro 5.0 was a rogue Scanner I tried to do a Google search of it and couldn't find it am just trying to remember where I found that.I know it was when I was having problems with the first trojans my Mcafee found.And I started looking to upgrade my Security not knowing I actually was downloading more infections.This is the kind of stuff that can happen when you don't know what you are doing which I fall under.I hope with your help and guidance we can conquer this pesky problem and again Thanks Again Mark .By the way "YOU THE MAN" you seem to know how to find these things. :thumbsup: Best Regards ~ JOHN

I'll wait for your next step or course of action !!!!!!

I think that Adware Pro 5.0 was a rogue Scanner

It's a legitimate scan tool but not as good as it used to be. Not too many recommend it anymore

Is SpywareCease in your Add/Remove Programs? If it is, uninstall it

Let me ask you if I formatt the hard drive and don't save anything and just reinstall my programs start from scratch will my computer be virus ,spyware,malware free Thanks ~ JOHN

Yes


Update mbam and run a FULL scan again
Please post the results

Mark I think you are talking about a different a different scanner mine looks different than Adware Pro mine was called Adware Professional 5.0 I tried to find it again so yuo could see it but I can't find it that kind of tells me it is Rogue in itself.

You're always going to have cookies
----------------------------------

Let's try this
Run SD fix, save the log and when that is done try Dr. Web one more time


Full tutorial:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/131299/how-to-use-sdfix/


Please print out and follow these instructions: "How to use SDFix".
When using this tool, you must use the Administrator's account or an account with "Administrative rights"
  • Disconnect from the Internet and temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any real time protection programs before performing a scan.
  • Please be patient as the scan may take up to 20 minutes to complete.
  • When the process is complete, the SDFix report log will open in Notepad and automatically be saved in the SDFix folder as Report.txt.
  • If SDFix is unable to run after rebooting from Safe Mode, run SDFix in either Mode, and type F, then press Enter for it to finish the final stage and produce the report.
  • The SDFix report log (Report.txt) will open in Notepad and automatically be saved in the SDFix folder.
  • Please copy and paste the contents of Report.txt in your next reply.
  • Be sure to re-enable you anti-virus and and other security programs before connecting to the Internet.
