Hey guys, well i have windows xp professional service pack 3. I recently wiped my drive and reinstalled due to another virus problem. before i wiped it i was constantly bothered by windows update to install a security update for internet explorer. When i tried to install it i would get the error that internet explorer 7 is not installed. I checked the executable and it was indeed internet explorer version 7. Now the problem still persists on a new fresh install. i dont know why.... i completely formated the drive. I have avast professional edition and it is not showing any infections. I also have Trend Micros RUbotted because i use to have my own bot for security tests before i formatted my hdd and i know how bad bots can be. Rubotted is showing that i have a bot. im pretty sure it is just showing mirc as a bot due to the ports it uses but it still says i have a bot even after i removed mIRC. I did an online scan on panda security and is saying i have a generic trojan in my system restore folder. I dont see any unknow or suspicious processes running....nor do i see any unknown registry keys or startup files in hijack this. Should i be worried?

Hello, lets' gey one quick lok befor we send you to the next forum section.

Next run MBAM (MalwareBytes):

NOTE: Before saving MBAM please rename it to zztoy.exe....now save it to your desktop.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.

alternate download link

MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • 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.
  • Exit MBAM when done.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

hello. recently i have been getting redirected to an online virus scanner. I know it is not legit......it shows all my drives and says im infected i hit close and it keeps bringing popups saying that my pc is infected so i just end the process of my browser in task manager. Eventually after hitting cancel on the prompts it automatically downloads a setup file to my desktop. I have avast professional edition and since i was curious i went to novirusthanks.org and uploaded the file. It scanned and did not pickup any viruses or malicious code with 24 virus scanning engines. Its getting annoying that i keep getting redirected.

the link that i am redirected to is hXXp://onlineantivirus48.com/s1/?sess=pGTx...T0xMjY1McAMPQJN
WARNING: i do not recommend going to this link it is only for reference and upon going to the link it may automatically download the virus scan setup file. If this does happen do not run it. Thanks for your time can anyone help me.


EDIT: Disabled potential HOT link
