Sat night I got an adware pop up blitz, I managed to remove most of the malicious files using Fredom antispyware and manually deleteing including these:
And afew others I cant remember the names too
however I can not remove one called
ABI advertising systems or some such its definately ABI. It creates a pop up that doesnt appear to be internet related, (I block it directly by right clicking it and adding it to Freedoms pop up blocker program and it still comes up every half minute to three minutes) the website it claims to be from is
when you go to look for the site it doesn't exist the are none of my browser toolbars on the pop up and you cant delete this file. Also when you do try to rmove the program using add/remove in the control panel it redirects you to a website and eventually to a site called MyPCcleanup.com where you are suposed to download an uninstall tool. I tried this it did not work although it claimed it did. I have the file contained as in it cant send or recieve internet comunication because Ive locked it behind freedoms firewall tool which is another reason I suspect it is local on the PC and not global on the internet sense it still pops up even after trying that.
I am at a loss here and my limited expertise in coding and ini files keeps me from resolving it myself in fact I am unsure even how to pull up a Win32 log let alone analyze it so I could use a bit of help.
One more thing My antivirus picked up several win32/backdoor.BB viruses and a couple other win32/---.SM virus I cant remeber the exact name of the second one but I can post it when I get home. I deleted those as Freedom sugested because it could not disinfect.
Hopefully you guys can help if not at least people see this and stay away from aruora and virtualbouncer as I am pretty sure they are malware not antispyuware devices
