Hey all. I got hit with the Antivirus XP 2010. Everything shut down... I finally managed to get Malware to work by changing the .exe into Malware.com.

Ran my scan, and got rid of files... now, the pop ups have stopped...but in order to use .exe's I need to turn them into ".com" extensions, and even that wont always work... I get it to work on IE, Firefox, STEAM, HiJack this, etc...... But I cannot figure out how to install things, or re-attach my .exe files!!!

Should I re-scan with malware, and HiJack and post logs? Argh!

Thanks for any help.

See my thread from today Friday at 4:16PM for more information. I am running XP SP2, was using Norton Symantec which is useless, and also had a problem with the exe's not linked and also Windows Installer not working so could not remove programs (you may have the problem too). Fix is described there including the exe linker. :thumbsup:

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic342396.html you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.

Hide not your talents. They for use were made. What's a sundial in the shade?
