where do I start?
Running XP Pro SP3................just upgraded to SP3 this week (was looking for a silver bullet)
Pop ups that come from no where.
All antivi Protection and Firewalls seem to have their lights on but nobodys home..Think they have all been compromised.Including Windows Firewall.
Can NOT get into safe mode thru any of the suggested methods..I can get to the safe mode splash screen buy no matter which I choose it just returns back the choice splash screen.
Instant message appz crash within minutes of a restart.
Copy/paste function after some time no longer works.
My F drive seems to have been effected as well. Keep getting MS errors but chkdsk comes up with nada (also drive testing appz show its fine)
No longer can get on sites that Ive been going to for years.(well know stores art galleries ect).I get the time outs errors. This list is getting longer.
And just real funky oddness in general. Things seems to be escalating.
What Ive tried:
Malwarebytes Pro...My usual everyday defense
Spyware Doctor Trial....this one said I had the virtumode, ardamax and the ones listed in the Topic description. All the others before it I had tried showed a few cookies that was it.. So I bought the Spayware Doctor with antivirus. That was a nightmare..Ill save my comments about Spyware Doc w/Av for a review thread somewhere. End result there was I returned it. It would never work or update.
I followed your thread here on the removal of these nasties but seems they are buried deep because all of the above problems are still here. The only thing I didnt try was the VirtumundoBeGone because of the safe mode issue.
Im hoping one of you can guide me out of this mess. Im almost to the point of backing over my beloved PC with my truck
Thanks so much in advance for for listening to my situation.
