I've been doing a lot of research, running a lot of tools, but the more I read, the worse my problems sound.
I'm running Win XP PRO SP3, MS Essentials AV (recently switched from McAfee), IE 7.
I have also tried running MalwareBytes Anti-Malware, Ad-Aware, Spy Bot, ToniArts EasyCleaner, MS Safety.Live
My problems started one day when something took over my IE. Every site I tried to go to, I ended up at laptopAntiVirus, and I got the usual popups saying I wasn't protected and they tried to sell their software.
The typical porn websites would popup. I ran several AV's and it would seem to go away, then come back.
That problem seems to be gone now. The current problems are
1. when I reboot I get an NTVDM System Error c0h.
2. I have a HelpAssistant Folder in MyDocuments. I emptied this and disabled it, but on the next reboot it created
a new folder "HelpAssistant Study Computer" and copied about 2 GB into it. Which explains my decreasing HD.
3. If I go into Ebay, or PayPal, with IE it brings up a phishing form looking that looks just like the real ebay or pp.
I have so many issues that I don't know where to start anymore and will gladly contribute to you fund if you can help.
Or, my next step is a Mac. More $ up front, but it might be worth it.
