Posted 28 January 2010 - 05:55 AM

I am ready to pull out my hair (and Ive already lost too much of it already). This virus/malaware is making my life miserable. I did a google search and saw many other people were also having the same problem which lead me to your website. Thank you for taking the time to assist me.

I am using Windows XP and two days ago noticed the computer going VERY SLOWLY. So I rebooted thinking that would solve the problem and immediately got the aforementioned tell-tale warnings: Tracking software found! XP Internet Security 2010 Firewall Alert!

Immediately I freaked out. I am using a laptop I was loaned by my friend as I am recovering from an accident and recently had surgery and am currently immobile. After some inspection I noticed he did not have his Firewall up, nor did he have anti-virus software running/installed or spyware software installed. My first thought was to pay the fee for what I have since discovered is bogus antivirus software. Since I am currently on disabilty this was not something I wanted to do, but after doing more research online I am so glad I didnt fall for this trap.

So I immediately downloaded Avast home edition, and did a virus scan. It found several infected files which I removed. It asked me to restart saying there was something in the operating system. So I did another full system scan and Avast found a few more. I later used MalwareBytes Anti-Malaware which found a few more which I also removed. What a relief. I thought all was good. Until I woke up this morning to find the same troublesome rogue programs and scareware running! Whoever said these programs are agressive which makes them difficult to remove was right! I am going bonkers.

I used Avast again which again found some security threats and asked me to reboot saying there was still a threat in the operating system. So I went through all that again and figured I also better download some spyware protection (kept getting annoying popups). So I downloaded Spybot as well as Ad-aware. I was able to run Ad-Aware but my first indication that something was still wrong was when I tried to load Spybot. It took FOREVER and would not load. Then I tried to run MalwareBytes again but it said it could not locate the .exe file and was missing a shortcut. I knew something was definitely wrong and messing with the system--not to mention a lot of ad popups continuing and a generally sluggish system.

So I came back to this website and found new instructions to try which I tried unsuccessfully. I loaded the FixReg.exe and attempted to run/load MalwareBytes from an external harddrive but I kept getting the same error message after MalwareByte loads (missing short cut/cannot locate the .exe file). This malaware is BRUTAL. How evil are people to create this stuff??

So now I dont know what to do so I am reaching out for help. I hope I have provided all the information you need. I put up the XP Firewall (at least I think I did cause I dont see it in the toolbar which I assumed I would) and as requested am including the DDS log as per the instructions on the website. I tried to upload both the attach.txt file and the ark.txt files but I have no idea if it worked. It shows "no file selected" after I click upload. I tried it several times. Hopefully you receive them with this post. If not please let me know how to correct this.

Your help is very much appreciated! Especially since my surgery there isnt much to do but watch tv and surf the net. THANK YOU KINDLY!!

PS I know there is a script blocker app on the Firefox browser. I wasnt sure if this would interfere so I am using Safari but thought I would mention it here nonetheless. Also when I ran the Root Repeal program it seemed fine and I was able to save the report--but then I saw some error message? Not sure what that was about but thought it was worth mentioning. PLEASE HELP.

  • A small box will open, with an explaination about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
  • Notepad will open with the results.
  • Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
  • Close the program window, and delete the program from your desktop.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run. After downloading the tool, disconnect from the internet and disable all antivirus protection. Run the scan, enable your A/V and reconnect to the internet.

Information on A/V control HERE



Please download GMER from one of the following locations and save it to your desktop:
  • Main Mirror
    This version will download a randomly named file (Recommended)
  • Zipped Mirror
    This version will download a zip file you will need to extract first. If you use this mirror, please extract the zip file to your desktop.
  • Disconnect from the Internet and close all running programs.
  • Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security programs will not conflict with gmer's driver.
  • Double-click on the randomly named GMER file (i.e. n7gmo46c.exe) and allow the gmer.sys driver to load if asked.
  • Note: If you downloaded the zipped version, extract the file to its own folder such as C:\gmer and then double-click on gmer.exe.


  • GMER will open to the Rootkit/Malware tab and perform an automatic quick scan when first run. (do not use the computer while the scan is in progress)
  • If you receive a WARNING!!! about rootkit activity and are asked to fully scan your system...click NO.
  • Now click the Scan button. If you see a rootkit warning window, click OK.
  • When the scan is finished, click the Save... button to save the scan results to your Desktop. Save the file as gmer.log.
  • Click the Copy button and paste the results into your next reply.
  • Exit GMER and re-enable all active protection when done.
-- If you encounter any problems, try running GMER in Safe Mode.

The malaware problem became so bad to where nothing would start. All anti-virus and anti-malaware programs were inoperative. I left it be for about 5 days. Finally was able to restart the computer and Avast miraculously opened. I ran a virus scan and got rid of a bunch of threats/problems, followed by Malawarebytes, Spybot, and Adaware. I was riddled with problems! Im hoping this will solve the problem and at least for now I am able to use the laptop again. Im keeping everything up to date and Avast is hopefully protecting me.

Thanks. If it becomes a problem again I will post once more. For now the problem appears to be solved.
