A couple days ago I was infected with a virus. Pop-up windows opened advertising various "programs" to get rid of viruses, and my desktop changed to a large picture telling me that I had spyware and it was going to wreck my life. I ran combofix, then ran malwarebytes, and the virus seemed to have disappeared. today, I noticed that occasionally when I was using the internet when I clicked on a page result from google, I would be sent to the home page of the advertising company MIVA. I tried to run combofix again, and it did not open. I tried to run Malwarebytes and it did not open. I downloaded and installed Superantispyware and that will bring up a window saying that it encountered a problem and needs to close. My only antivirus that works is Symantec Corporate edition, and the always picks up three counts of Packed.Generic.200, with the filename: uacesshqwmqntmogxy.dll. Symantec tells me it takes acction on these files, but my computer's behavior is not changed, and if i run the search again it picks up the same thing.
I run Windows XP Media Center, please let me know if you need any more info so I can fix my computer! I am currently using an alternate, clean computer.
>>UPDATE: I am currently running RootRepeal in efforts to find and erase a potential CLB Rootkit infection aka WinNT-Alureon. I am following these instructions: http://www.malwarebytes.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=12709
>>>UPDATE: The above routine was successful in the fact that I can now run Malwarebytes. I am running a quick scan right now.
>>>>UPDATE: The quickscan found 53 infected objects, deleted some and i restarted my computer to delete the rest. I am currently running a full scan.
