So, I have had a good friend (stang777) help me here and he told me to post my scan logs over.

So, this is what I did.

1. I ran malwarebytes (full scan) and it says that nothing happened. Here is the report to prove it.

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.39
Database version: 2468
Windows 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3

Registry Values Infected:
(No malicious items detected)

Registry Data Items Infected:
(No malicious items detected)

Folders Infected:

2. I ran SuperAnitSpyware (only a quick scan) and this is what I got.
Adware Tracking Cookies (About 120)
Adware.Vundo Variant/Rel (28 of these guys)
Rogue.Component/Trace (1 entry)
Trojan.Dropper/Multi-MBAD (2 entries)

I'll take any help I can get. Thanks!

Try this scan:

Before we start fixing anything you should print out these instructions or copy them to a NotePad file so they will be accessible. Some steps will require you to disconnect from the Internet or use Safe Mode and you will not have access to this page.

Please download Dr.Web CureIt and save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.
alternate download link
Note: The file will be randomly named (i.e. 5mkuvc4z.exe).

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 the randomly named file 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. (This will move any detected files to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if they can't be cured)
  • After the Express Scan is finished, 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 Apply, Ok.
  • Back at the main window, click the green arrow "Start Scanning" button on the right under the Dr.Web logo.
  • Please be patient as this scan could take a long time to complete.
  • When the scan has finished, a message will be displayed at the bottom indicating if any viruses were found.
  • Click Select All, then choose Cure > 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)

Thanks but safe mode kind of scares me. I had a bad experience with it once and got stuck in it and my memory boards or something like that was burned out completely and had to get new ones.

I don't know if I feel confident in trying that but if that is the only choice I have...

Try running the scan in normal mode.

Oh, well that would make me feel a whole lot better.
The person helping me on this site said he would check at this, and not that you aren't being awesome helping me out right now, I just want to hear what he thinks since he has been helping me for the last few days and told me to run specific stuff.

I really don't know much so I get nervous when it comes to doing anything so yeah.

Hi LazyMan,

You are in good hands with Budapest here, Budapest knows way more than I do about this stuff.

It looks like SuperAntiSpyware found a lot of infections that could possibly be what is slowing down your computer.

Did you let SuperAntiSpyware remove the items it found?

If so, did you run another scan with it to be sure they were gone?

Dr.Web CureIt should be able to detect any other infections and hopefully remove them.

Again, you are in good hands with Budapest.

Hey Stang777,

Its not that I didn't trust budapest, you just knew more about my situation.
I did get rid of the ones that superantispyware found. I will run the scan again in full mode to see what else it can find as well as run the dr. cure one and post the results here tomorrow (or whenever they are finished)

Thanks to both of you for the help!

Just ran the complete AntiSpy guy again and it only found 10 tracking cookies.

Off to run the other scan now that budapest gave me.

My computer seems to be moving slightly faster but nothing outstanding.

I wouldn't worry at all about the tracking cookies and it looks like you are making head way with the infection. The other scan Budapest recommended should help too, as well as anything else he suggests.

I was hoping clearing up your system a bit would give better performance, maybe it is the stuff suggested in your other thread that will.

Be sure to continue with all Budapest suggests though, as nothing else you do will be worth a darn if you still have malware on the system

So, what do I do now? lol.
Also, how did I get these in the first place so that way I can try and prevent them in the future.

I am not saying they are for sure, but it is possible that the aol coach detections are basically false positives. I am pretty sure that the gtdown/Gdown are adware, but are part of the coach program for aol. I think aol will run fine without it but I am not sure. I think the coach part of the program is part of their computer diagnostic program included in their last few versions.

I also think that Housecall6 is part of Trend Micros scanner, so also a false positive

Also, I believe KillWind.exe is part of the utilities installed by HP, so also a false positive.

I think they have characteristics that are potentially harmful or undesirable (adware being undesirable) and that is why they were flagged, but are not necessarily harmful.

I could be wrong about all of this though :thumbsup:

Btw, did Dr. Web ask before quartantining or fixing those items or did it just automatically do it with no input from you?

On one of them it asked me and I said yes to all. (It was when the kill wind one popped up)

Also, I don't have aol anymore and haven't for years. I would be more than happy to get rid of all aol stuff actually. I will try and find that and delete it permanently.

Thanks, I was wanting to run that program just for the heck of it but have been afraid it would just automatically get rid of stuff that it deems to be a threat but might not be. I do not like to run anythig that doesn't let me control its actions.

Good luck getting rid of all the AOL stuff. I have never tried as I use AOL, but I have always heard it is a real bugger to get rid of everything.

Just to let you know, it did move some of the things into its quarantine thing without asking me.
It was weird on how sometimes it would ask me and others it automatically moved. Just letting you know!
