I was simply reading MSN stories when this popup came up on my taskbar, saying 'Click here to protect your computer from spyware!' with a message below it. Well since I have SAS and MBAM, I ignored it. To close it out and go through the removal process, I tried to bring up the Windows thing (Ctrl Alt Delete), it said it was infected. I tried installing the fixtm - nothing. I tried running MBAM and SAS - neither will work. It's even making icons on my desktop, advertising porn sites, which I can promise you I don't visit. ^.^;; Please let me know how to get this as far away from me as possible.. I have no desire to see this thing ever again. Here are my specs:

OS: XP Home
Browser: FireFox
Removal Programs Installed: MBAM, SAS, Avira, HJT, Dr Web

Edit: Now I apparently, in addition to AVR, have something that is acting like my Windows Security sheild in my taskbar. I'm gonna take a wild guess (note the sarcasm) that it's an infection too.. I'd like help removing that as well. Thanks.

Lets try to get Malwarebytes to run:

let's try Fatdcuk's fix.

Please navigate to the MBAM folder located in the Program Files directory.

Locate MBAM.exe and rename it to winlogon.exe

Once renamed double click on the file to open MBAM and select Quick Scan

At the end of the scan click Remove Selected and then reboot.


Post the scan log. 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.

When I turned on my computer this morning, NO icons were present, nor was my taskbar. I've had this happen before, so I restarted - still nothing. I went through the task manager to bring up FireFox (so I could read the directions you gave) then went through your steps. I managed to rename and bring up MBAM, but after three seconds (I watched the timer), it closed out. What's our next step?

Edit: Finally got my icons and all to come back for a split second before it hit again.. and now I can't even bring up the task manager anymore. I'm not immune to a complete overhaul if that's what it takes.
