Hi there.

Apologies for posting, but stumbled across you guys last night.

I appear to have "grown" a large amount of malware in recent weeks.

My operating system is vista and I have avast and and run spybot search and destroy.


Last night I discovered that I had a number of malware, they were all deleted except for one called win32.FraudLoad.


Having read the posts at the top of your board I must confess that I followed some selfhelp websites (I figured I should at least try and resolve the problem myself before disturbing others)

I have downloaded registry mechanic which notified me that i have 406 problems of which only the first six will be fixed.

I have installed the Hijack this but not used it.

I have installed CCleaner.com

And I ran Combo fix (sorry!)following the step by step process on another website and have the log saved.

I have rerun spybot which found more malware (but of different sorts) deleted and have just run another spybot which says I am clean.

I have herd stories that spybot isn't always meticulous. Am I clean for the time being or am i missing something, sorry just find it hard to believe that the malware has suddenly gone?

Hi,

First: I see you have used ComboFix before you came to us. I want to inform you that the execution of ComboFix, without supervision from a trained helper, can have very harmful effects on your computer.
ComboFix is a powerful tool, that can, without supervision from one of us, make your system (partly) corrupt. So I advise you to don't use this tool, and our other tools, in the future anymore without supervision.

Let's take a look. :thumbsup:

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.

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.
