I have read many other topics and it seems I'm not the only one. The other day I was infact infected and could NOT even open Malwarebytes, until SPyware bot search and destroy deleted whatever it was, then MAlwarebytes deleted other stuff it found after the other viruses was removed... even before I used those two, SuperAntiSpyware found other things. Ok, so I'm pretty sure I'm clean since malwarebytes started to work again, then I'm being redirected when I use google... what's going on? Also how do I get rid of whatever is going on?? Any assistance would be fine thanks. :D

Hello and welcome.

please run RKilland see if you can then run MBAM.

Probably best to do a fresh install.


1. Uninstall Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware using Add/Remove programs in the control panel.
2. Restart your computer (very important).
3. Download and run this utility. Mbam clean
4. It will ask to restart your computer (please allow it to).
5. After the computer restarts, install the latest version from here. http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam-download.php
Note: You will need to reactivate the program using the license you were sent.
Note: If using Free version, ignore the part about putting in your license key and activating.
Launch the program and set the Protection and Registration.
Then go to the UPDATE tab if not done during installation and check for updates.
Restart the computer again and verify that MBAM is in the task tray and run a Quick Scan and post that log.

I think you misread or I did not explain myself well. BEFORE, malware bytes wouldn't work, but now it does. I scanned with it twice and it found nothing. However, I'm still being redirected on google...

do I still do what you told me to? o.o

It is possible I'm insane. :thumbsup:

Next run ATF and SAS:

From your regular user account..
Download Attribune's ATF Cleaner and then SUPERAntiSpyware , Free Home Version. Save both to desktop ..

Would you like a Malware bytes full log next? I didnt restart my computer right away, I didnt so I could post this, now I"m restarting.

EDIT 2 : Forget this, thanks for your help anyway. After trying to restart, it just wont come on and the blue screen I always had got worse and wouldn't allow me to enter my computer... I just lost everything and having to redownload everything...

Sorry to hear that. In some instances an infection may have caused so much damage to your system that it cannot be completely cleaned or repaired. Wiping your drive, reformatting, and performing a clean install of the OS or doing a factory restore removes everything and is the safest action but I cannot make that decision for you.

Reformatting a hard disk deletes all data. If you decide to reformat, you can back up all your important documents, data files and photos. The safest practice is not to backup any autorun.ini or .exe files because they may be infected. Some types of malware may disguise itself by adding and hiding its extension to the existing extension of files so be sure you take a close look at the full name. After reformatting, as a precaution, make sure you scan these files with your anti-virus prior to copying them back to your hard drive.

The best proceedure is a low level format. This completely wipes the drive. Then reinstall the OS.
Use the free version of Active@ KillDisk.
Or Darik's Boot And Nuke

The best sources of Information on this are
Reformatting Windows XP
Michael Stevens Tech

Of course also feel free to ask anything on this in the XP forum. They'd be glad to help.

==============================

2 guidelines/rules when backing up

1) Backup all your important data files, pictures, music, work etc... and save it onto an external hard-drive. These files usually include .doc, .txt, .mp3, .jpg etc...
2) Do not backup any executables files or any window files. These include .exe/.scr/.htm/.html/.xml/.zip/.rar files as they may contain traces of malware. Also, .html or .htm files that are webpages should also be avoided.
