recently when i start my computer and log on to my profile a wordpad window pops up the simpley titled y. It had all this weird writing displayed. By making changes to it and trying to close it wordpad ask me if i want to save the changes to C:\users\steven\Appdata\Local\Temp\y.exy.I tried to find the file so i could delete it but, it was nowhere to be found. I dont know what this is and im worried its something really bad. I have already used kaspersky and SUPERantispyware to try and fix the problem. Can someone please help me?

Hi,

Let's take a look :thumbsup:

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.

Please do this:

Please go to Kaspersky website and perform an online antivirus scan.

  • Make sure these boxes are checked (ticked). If they are not, please tick them and click on the Save button:
    • Spyware, Adware, Dialers, and other potentially dangerous programs
      Archives
  • Click on My Computer under Scan.
  • Once the scan is complete, it will display the results. Click on View Scan Report.
  • You will see a list of infected items there. Click on Save Report As....
  • Save this report to a convenient place. Change the Files of type to Text file (.txt) before clicking on the Save button.
  • Please post this log in your next reply.

Hi,

Everything looks clean again. Now let's do something about the prevention of your system. :thumbsup:
Do this please:

1. Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove infected files that have been backed up by Windows. The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programs from changing those files. This is the only way to clean these files: (You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected)1. Turn off System Restore.On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.
2. Restart your computer.

3. Turn ON System Restore.On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
UN-Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.
[/list]System Restore will now be active again.

2. Go to the Windows update site.
  • Allow if asked to install an ActiveX applet. Go on with Windows Update after this.
  • Now click on the option Custom.
  • Windows Update will check your system now for missing updates. It will present you the results after this.
  • Now check all boxes on the page viewed. Do this with all categories (in the left menu are three categories present: Essential, Software (optional) en Hardware (optional)).
  • Now click on Install updates in the left menu and then on the button Install updates.
  • Windows Update will install all updates now. This can take some minutes or some hours (depending on the amount of available updates).
  • Windows Update will show you when it's ready with installing the updates. If a restart of your system is needed, Windows Update will show you this also. If a restart is needed, please allow this immediately then.
3. Read this page To prevent yourself against re-infection.


Then you are done. :flowers:
