Hey everyone,

I am new to this website and new to having computer problems, so I was hoping someone could please help me out. My desktop is infected with a message that replaced my wallpaper reading: WARNING! YOUR'RE IN DANGER! YOUR COMPUTER IS INFECTED WITH SPYWARE! ect ect going on to say more is smaller font, and ending in: SECURE YOURSELF RIGHT NOW! REMOVE ALL SPYWARE FROM YOUR PC! This message has a blue background and white and red font. It also Has a couple of security shields that pop up balloons every time I try and close them. One is red with a white X on it and the other has orange and black diagonal stripes. I believe it is a fake attempt to have me buy System Security 2009. I am currently using my un-infected laptop, while my desktop is the one that is infected. Both of these run on windows XP. I hope this is enough info to guide someone to help me with this problem. I appreciate everyone who reads this and is willing to help me out.

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

MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.
  • 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 definition 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. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
  • Exit MBAM when done.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

thank you so much,

I downloaded the program in normal mode on my infected desktop, but could not open it. I then went into safe mode and opened the program. I ran the program in safe mode and it didnt ask for updates because I had no internet connection. I hope that is ok. Please let me know if these steps will still work. It is scanning right now and I will post the results when I am done.

After you finish scanning is Safe Mode, boot back into Normal Mode and try scanning again. Post both logs (or only the first log if it still won't work in Normal Mode).

If you’re clean, you should create a new Restore Point to prevent possible re-infection from an old one.

Go Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click System Restore. Choose the radio button marked Create a Restore Point on the first screen then click Next. Give the Restore Point a name and then click Create. Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point. Go Start > Run and type: "Cleanmgr" (without the quotes). Click Ok > More Options tab > Clean Up in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.

Also, go Start > Control Panel and double-click Add or Remove Programs. Post back and report any Java entries that you have.

Is there anything else I should do to know that I am clean before I start a new restore point or should I just go ahead and do it?

Nothing else at this stage unless your computer is still showing signs of infection.

some java apps that I found:

J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 4 (I dont know if this is java or not)
J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 6 (I dont know if this is java either)
Java 2 Runtime Environment, SE v1.4.2_03
Java ™ 6 Update 11
Java ™ SE Runtime Environment 6 Update 1


That is all that I saw on there, are these bad, or do I need to do anything with these?

Those are all out-of-date. Remove them and then download the latest:

Ok, I have installed the updated Java. Thanks so much for everything. The computer seems to be working great. One last question. Should I keep the system restore on? When I went to create a new restore point, it was off. I am just wondering.
