Hello. After reading others' posts about the same problem, I am here for some help.
I am using Firefox and when I go to Ebay then go to My Ebay and have to sign in then I get the new screen of asking for name, address, mothers maiden name, credit card number and PIN. I know Ebay wouldn't ask for this since I have had this account since '98. It is also making the system run slow.

I did do a Restore back to before Christmas then to the 1st of December but the problem is still here. I did try the same login on a laptop with a wireless connection and was able to do the login with no problem. I have read others have had success using Goggle Chrome, so loaded that and it worked ok. But I can only imagine what else is still going on behind the scenes of my infected computer.

I must hand it to them..whoever designed this phishing Ebay screen certainly did a good, convincing job. I believe I even got it once on the PayPal signin screen.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

It's possible that you have an infected Master Boot Record so lets check it to be sure.

Please download mbr.exe and save it to your desktop <- (Important!).
  • Double-click on mbr.exe and allow the mbr.sys driver to load if asked.
  • A black DOS window will open and quickly disappear. This is normal.
  • A log file named mbr.log will be created and saved on your desktop.
  • Copy and paste the results of the mbr.log in your next reply.
Please download SystemScan and save it to your desktop.
  • Be aware that the file name will be randomly generated (i.e. sys95769.exe) to deceive malware which may attempt to disabled it.
  • If any installed security tools (anti-virus) detects the file as malware or suspicious while downloading or attempting to run, ignore the alert.
  • Double-click on sys*****.exe to start the tool.
  • A read before proceeding disclaimer will appear.
  • Uncheck <- Unflag the checkbox to disable updates! next to the version number at the top.
  • After reading, check the box I have read and agree. Please let me...proceed!, then click the Proceed button.
  • When SystemScan opens, click the "Unselect all" button.
  • Important: Under "Make your choice and than click...", check the boxes next to:
    • PC accounts
  • Everything else should be unchecked.
  • Click "Scan Now".
  • Another warning box will appear. Please follow the instructions and click Ok.
  • Please be patient while the scan is in progress.
  • Systemscan will scan your computer and create a folder named suspectfile on the Desktop to save its report.
  • When the scan is complete, Notepad will automatically open a log file named report.txt with the results.
  • Copy and paste the contents of report.txt in your next reply.
