Hi all :\
First off I need to know if antivirus live (from your malware files) and liveantivirus.com are the same animals?


Secondly
This problem is not on my personal computer. So any help I give is from a distance.

Malware is giving:
Security warnings 'you have a virus' (DUH) 'scans' for the 'virus' says nearly everything she tries to access is 'corrupted'
denying access to email,IE,AVG,Malware Bytes app, and several programs i.e., Microsoft Works.

HiJackthis was able to scan but I am unsure whether it was saved to the desktop or not.

Computer was manually shut down 2x and now malware will not allow HiJackthis to run.

Seems to be from liveantivrus.comalso is showing BankerFox.a and Win32/nuqel.e
also downloading a lovely site called porn.org complete with lovely pictures we prefer the 11 year old child in the house not to see!

If I can figure out a way to get the Hijack file I will post it in the proper (I hope) place I will post it.

Btw. The original Hijackthis log had the option of analysis which took her to their forum. Not having the screen in front of me I was unsure what to tell here to do and now we cannot get back to it.

Any help greatly appreciated. TIA
peace

Sorry I should have added the computer is a Dell and is Windows XP not sure about SP but I believe it is probably number 3
IE8 but will double check that.

Hello All:
I have the exact same problem on my Windows XP P4 computer. I am starting to use the Removal Guide that was posted by Grinder on Dec. 7, 2009. If there is anything else anyone can add to Grinder's process or things to watch out for, please share. I will post the results of the removal process.

Thanks crispybo!
I will definitely check back to see how you progress. I really think that MBam would fix it but the malware virus keeps shutting it down.

Hi Hattah & All:
I was lucky, I had already installed malwarebytes and A-Square Anti-Malware from a thumb drive onto the infected computer and after rebooting and being unsuccessful getting into safe mode so I could start the process outlined on this forum, I noticed the popups had not started yet and I hit A-Square's shortcut icon and it started up. Apparently, the Anti-Virus Live doesn't start up right away when the computer is finishing booting up when it gets to Windows. If you can start one of the Anti-Malware programs before Live starts, you can run the clean up program to get rid of the piece of bleep program that some jerk wrote to screw with people's computers. :thumbsup: Once I ran A-square and got most of the junk off, I ran Malwarebytes and found a few other files that needed to go.

Good luck with your computer, I understand how frustrating it can be. I feels good once you get rid of that crap that is going around. I hope someone finds who ever wrote this crap and hangs them from their thumbs from a tree for a couple of days.
