Hi -I am running XP Home with McAfee as virus protection. Yesterday I started receiving some pop up windows when I was surfing with Firefox. I went to MSCONFIG and noticed this file running: wamejulu rundll32.exe "c:\windows\system32\wamejulu.dll",a
In my efforts to clear this up I have attempted to install Malwarebytes but after installing it I receive an error when I attempt to run it saying the mbam.exe file is missing. I've tried to replace the file with a randomly named mbam.exe file but this didn't enable the software to work.
Next I installed Ad-Aware and it picked up a few things which it removed but I still had problems and would recieved a "red X" pop up error message from time to time. No message in the red x box except a button titled "ok".
Next I installed combofix, without any guidance, and it seemed to delete and fix everything. This was last night so I thought I was fine and resumed surfing but the problem resurfaced today and when I received a pop up ad so I checked MSCONFIG and there was another dll file running.
I ran combofix again and it went through it's entire process but it didn't delete anything. About this same time McAfee picked up "av-test.txt" and quarantined it.
I have also tried to boot in safe mode by hitting F8 but after I reach the screen where I select "safe mode" the screen disappears momentarily only to return and say something about there being a problem with booting in safe mode and so I had to choose to boot up normally.
That's where I'm at which is basicallyabck to start. I'm running another Ad-Aware scan but I'm not sure what else to do.
