I used this forum about a month or two ago to get rid of one infection, now I think I have another. This is driving me crazy.

I don't know how I got it, I did not visit any malicious sites or download anything. Infact I have only visited the same three sites I visit over and over again for years. The only thing I have done was I followed a link posted on a forum to see a picture. It wasn't a clicky link, I had to copy paste the url to see a picture. I can't see how that did anything however.

My Sygate Personal Firewall crashed not long afterwards, and something else to but I can't remeber the error message (it was one of those click here to end the program type boxes). Perhaps I am just being paranoid because AVG has not given me any warning. I had to restart my pc, and Sygate is now

I am at this moment in time running my AVG scanner and Spybot the scans have not finished yet but so far AVG has not found anything but Spybot has so far found 2 trojans called PWEGamemania.gen.

Can I have some help getting rid of it? I am so paranoid because the last infection I got was a keylogger, and I don't need this again.


I used Spybot to remove the 2 copies of the trojan I found, and that was all it had found. I then updated it and tried to immunize but then I got a blue screen. It said something about shutting down windows to prevent further hamr to my pc. it said something like page_fault_in_none_page_name and then it said further down, Technical Info
Sstop: 0x00000050 (0xff00df0c, 0x00000000, 0x804f000e, 0x00000000)

I am now rescanning with AVG because the scan was interrupted by me having to retsart, and I ran a quick scan with malwarebytes and produced this log ehich seems promising I just need to be certain all is good :thumbsup:

Let's take a look.

Please go to Kaspersky website and perform an online antivirus scan.
  • Read through the requirements and privacy statement and click on Accept button.
  • It will start downloading and installing the scanner and virus definitions. You will be prompted to install an application from Kaspersky. Click Run.
  • When the downloads have finished, click on Settings.
  • 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
  • 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.
