Posted 05 March 2010 - 01:30 PM

A couple days ago internet explorer kept popping up every 10-20 seconds with the same website about renting movies. I went on line to try to find something to help me solve the problem. I found the following website:

http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qi...04152134AAfesHO

They told me to do the following:

get these free tools... adaware(lavasoft.com) spybot(safer-networking.org) HiJackThis(trend.com) winsockfix v1.2(majorgeeks.com) CCleaner (ccleaner.com)
install and run the adaware/spybot updater
disable restore
start-run-apps-accessories-sys... disk cleanup
reboot safe mode w/ networking (continually press f8 upon reboot)
Run adaware and spybot deleting anything they find.
Run Hijackthis (this shows all BHO's on ur browser~very important)
Run CCleaner (Repair/delete anything it finds)
Run free online scan (trend.com bitdefender.com pandasoftware.com) remove any findings
Run winsockfix v1.2
reboot
enable restore


I did all of these steps, rebooted my computer, and found out that my computer now runs slower after running these programs than it did before. Sometimes I have to turn my computer on or off a couple times to even get it to work at a manageable speed. Once working at a manageable speed, i seem to only have about an hour or two before eveyrthing starts slowing down again. I then get warnings about my virtural memory being low. after hitting control-alt-delete, I see that explore.exe continues to take up more and more virtual memory. It will end up going over 1,000,000. I also coninually get an alert from my ad-aware program about every 5 minutes that says the following:

Ad-Watch Live! Alert
Process blocked
Ad-Watch live! Has blocked the process gtk110.tmp(1584)[this # in the parenthesis is always different] from starting on your system. The process has been indentified as Win.32.Trojan.Pasmu

and then I found your website and went through the "Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help." There I was able to get DDS and ARK logs. The DDS log is as follows:

No one is ignored here.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.

If you have not done so, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Upon completing the steps below another staff member will review and take the steps necessary with you to get your machine back in working order clean and free of malware.

If you have already posted a DDS log, please do so again, as your situation may have changed.
Use the 'Add Reply' and add the new log to this thread.

Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan:
