Hello! I most humbly come here asking for your knowledge and help. Three days ago my husband accepted an upgrade for Firefox from 3.58 to 3.6. After the upgrade, I noticed that programs requiring things such as java applets where not loading at all or slow to load. I uninstalled the upgrade and went back to Firefox 3.56. After that, we started getting Pop Ups, the commercial type. Our Pop UP blocker is enabled, but these Pop Ups are obvious, not the norm. At the time we had Malware Bytes on our computer and it had been scheduled to run everyday at 6pm for over the past year now and did so faithfully. I went to do a scan and noticed that it had disappeared from my System tray. I went into my Programs list to try and execute it from there only to get a "missing dll" file error message. So, I went on the net to download another copy of the installation for Malware Bytes, ran it and right at the end of the installation, received the same error. That evening, I downloaded a fresh copy of "Combo Fix", ran it, and got my report. But yet the Pop Ups still continued. The next day, I installed a purchased licensed copy of Kaspersky Internet Security 2010, ran a full scan, it found 1 virus, and 1 Trojan. Still Pop Ups, today Kaspersky is still picking up Trojans, we are up to 9 now, but still Pop Ups. Kaspersky has reported the following:
VirusRootKit.WIN32.TDSS.Y ( 1 Event) Disinfected
Trojan Program Trojan-Downloader.JS.Agent.fce (1 Event) Status not Know
Trojan Program Trojan.WIN32.Monder.DDMB (7 Events) Deleted
Trojan Progam Trojan.WIN32.StartPage.ehg (1 Event) Deleted
Ok, moving on. Kaspersky is not getting rid of it period. I think is is getting worse. I have turned off system Restore before running any thing to try and get rid of this.
Next, I installed Symantec Trojan Vundo Removal Tool 1.5, ran it was told I did not have Vundo.
I followed your instructions for getting started here before posting. I was unable to run the DDS application, it ran but I never saw the small black window, but notepad did come up and the text was not readable. I was able to run GMER. I have attached both reports.
I am running Windows XP Home Edition
Mozilla Firefox 3.56
Thank you for being here, I hope to hear back from the Forum soon. Hope you can help us.
PS. I cannot upload the DDS text file/log, it is too large. I do not think you could read it anyways, as it is not normal readable text.
