I have a virus I cannot get rid of. It started one day when my husband was playing PurePlay poker. He had nothing else open and a pop up appeared then the desktop picture went away. It was all down hill from there. We use Lime Wire, so I am assuming it came frome there, but we have been using it for a long time and although we get an occassional virus, I can usually get rid of it within a few hours. This one, however, seems to be way different. It will redirect up to about ten times before we can get to the page we want. Pop ups come from nowhere. I have the pop up blocker (IE) on, too. My web pages have been just shutting down out of the blue. The other night, (I have been at this one for 5 days now) every time I would go to an antivirus site it would say a network cable has been unplugged and I will lose my connection (we have DSL) Last night, my husband was on the computer and it just said it was going to shut itself down. And lo and behold it did. I know this sounds a little OCD, but I now am the proud owner of 8 softwares of different types. Each scan I run finds something and removes it, but nothing changes. I do SmitFraud Fix and it won't fix it. I have AVG. It won't either. Neither does PC Tools SpyWare Doctor, MalWare Bytes, or SpyBot S&D. I find this one a lot on SpyBot (wmdtc.exe) There are several others that keep coming back. I even run them back to back (BORING) and it is still there. I am about to just format, but I am on a mission as this virus or whatever is ticking me off!!! LOL I want to know what is going on? Does anyone have any ideas? Please help... :thumbsup:

what i would try doing is going onto your task manager ctrl alt delete... then on processes at the top look on there for 'wmdtc.exe' and any other .exe files that your antivirus or spybots pick up. When you locate the .exe file you need to right click it and then click end process.

(now this bit may/may not work) but once done you will then need to run 'msconfig' go to startup and processes and look for the programs you have just just ended in the task manager.

when you have done all these you should be able to double check on spybot and malware bites and then try and erase from there root file..

Give this a go.. if this doesn't work i will be glad to try and help some more on my forum utraz.com but this should work anyway
