I'm not so expirienced online pc user, and i have some problems in last few weeks.
I was using SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition, and it kept my pc clean (I guess). I used to update it before every scan.

One day i noticed that i can't update it! It was strange. Main windows toolbar (start button) started to freeze often (among other unussual slowdowns). Than I visited my favourite freeware site gizmo's freeware reviews (it helped me find this place).
I found out that i can't access some of the links. It was strange too. :/
Then I downloaded and installed MBAM. I couldn't update it too. Anyway, I ran the scan, and it founded some malware tough.
Than I installed a-squared Free. It also couldn't update. I run scan, and it founded 2 viruses. :flowers:

Than i saw some Eye Chart to Diagnose Conficker Virus on mentioned forum. I have tested, and find out that maybe my pc is infected with conficker virus A/B variant (among upper three images, left and right one, were not visible). :thumbsup:

Thanks 4 help, in advance. :trumpet:

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized Malware Removal forum to the Am I Infected forum.

==>PLEASE DO NOT NOW POST LOGS<== unless a log is specifically requested.

Please describe the issues you are experiencing with your computer.

regards, Elise

If there are no longer signs of malware then please....

Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "Ok"
  • Disk Cleanup will scan your files for several minutes, then open.
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click the "Clean up" button under System Restore.
  • Click Ok. You will be prompted with "Are you sure you want to delete all but the most recent restore point?"
  • Click Yes, then click Ok.
  • Click Yes again when prompted with "Are you sure you want to perform these actions?"
  • Disk Cleanup will remove the files and close automatically.
Vista Users can refer to these links: Create a New Restore Point and Disk Cleanup.
