The past two days, I have been attacked by a viral attempt due to one particular site that was usually harmless to my computer in the past. My internet would slow drastically and i was forced to restart my computer. At those times i could not scan with Malwarebytes because it was "not found" and so I had to re-download it.

Just hours ago, I faced a situation in which I scanned with Spybot and found two Virtumonde viruses and a Fraud virus, which I quickly deleted.
Then, going on Google, I was attacked by a new window filled with pop-ups. I use Firefox and I never had this happen to me before. There were literally 3-24 tabs of spam and advertisements in just one click of a Google link.

This doesn't occur only in Google...it comes out in other harmless sites too, like Youtube and such...

Is this the result of the Virtumonde/Fraud virus? If it is just an internet security problem, how can I improve my security?

I was able to do everything up until the Safe mode part.
My computer (Windows XP Professional) was unable to boot into Safe mode. Everytime I chose the Safe mode option, it just returns to the black startup screen and says an apology. I tried all Safe mode options, but none worked...
Is this also because of a virus?

Here is my Malwarebytes scan: (it found nothing)
Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.41

Please run SUper an d ATF in normal..

Also run part 1 of S!Ri's SmitfraudFix

Please download SmitfraudFix

Double-click SmitfraudFix.exe
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

Hi, please run Part Cleaner. Post this log and the SUperantispayware log. Tell me how it is running now.

You should print out these instructions, or copy them to a Notepad file for reading while in Safe Mode, because you will not be able to connect to the Internet to read from this site.

Please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press "Enter".
  • Choose your usual account.
Once in Safe Mode, double-click SmitfraudFix.exe
Select option #2 - Clean by typing 2 and press "Enter" to delete infected files.

You will be prompted : "Registry cleaning - Do you want to clean the registry ?"; answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter" in order to remove the Desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection.

The tool will now check if wininet.dll is infected. You may be prompted to replace the infected file (if found); answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter".

The tool may need to restart your computer to finish the cleaning process; if it doesn't, please restart anyway into normal Windows. A text file will appear onscreen, with results from the cleaning process; please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.
The report can also be found at the root of the system drive, usually at C:\rapport.txt

I am still unable to go into Safe Mode on my computer. Everytime I choose the Safe Mode option, my computer just starts up to the black screen, and then says that it is sorry but is unable to go into Safe Mode.
I scanned with SUPERAntiSpyware, but it found nothing. Malwarebytes also detected nothing. Only Spybot seemed to pick up a Microsoft Firewall Bypass bug.

I also found out that I am now constantly bombarded mainly by a single site, advertising American Satellite. This comes up in a new tab in my Firefox window and pops up at any time.
Additionally, my computer unexpectedly shut down on me about an hour ago. When it restarted, another one of my antivirus programs caught a Trojan generic bug.

Hi,soory for the delay but stuff happens. It appears that some malware is still herand being protected by perhaps a driver or service and it is also causing the Safe Mode issue, Usually when safe mode fails I recommend a reformat and that still may be the case. other than that we wiill need to have the HJT team look deeper inside. So you will need to run HJT/DDS.
Please follow this guide. go and do steps 6 thru 8 ,, Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Hijackthis. Then go here HijackThis Logs and Virus/Trojan/Spyware/Malware Removal ,click New Topic,give it a relevant Title and post that complete log.

Let me know if it went OK.
