I have being trying to get rid of these programs (Antivirus 2009, MyWebSearch, VideoEgg) but they are proving to be far smarter than me and i've almost hang the boxing gloves. the problem started when my newphew downloaded antivirus 2009 on to the computer (hp windows vista home premium service pack 2, 32 bit). I thought i've remove it by using the control panel and searching through the registry.
but after doing more searches on google i realise it doesn't go away like, i use malwarebyte but it hang after finding aboout 51 malwares/virus. i uninstall it and install it again run the scan but now it says everything is clean but i do not really trust it...so i've tried the combofix at first it deleted about 3 folder from "$recycler" but did not show any log. so i did it again about twice and now i have so logs but am not sure if my system is clean now..
i have also used spybot search and destroy many times recently, but it kept reassuring me that the computer is clean.
i am not use if i have the correct RootRepeal report because the computer/virus/malware was preventing it from running, if it doesn't crash the computer(blue screen of death), it always hang. i end up trying it in safe mode and the name but still it takes ages (the last scan i did, i started it at 3am and it went on till 3pm in the afternoon, and around 8am in the morning it was at this folder C:\Windows\Winsxs\Manifest\ and when i decided to check that folder around 3pm, it hanged ) and hang most of the time, so what i did was after it hanged and i restarted the computer in safe mode, i press the Scan button and click on the save report button, but the bottom part of the report is in chinese or japanese not sure how, dont know if that is the right report.
please can you help me out....
i mcafee antivirus and i regularly use ad-adware and recently malwarebyte and spybot search and destroy...
i don't know if this will be of any use but when i type the Netstat -an command in cmd, i see the port number in the 40,000, 50,000 and even 60,000 range and i thought they were suppose to be below 4,000
