Hi everybody, I hope you are doing well.

Background to what happened:
I caught my son on a P2P the other day downloading music via torrents on the family PC (running XP). Since that time I have deleted the torrent program he was using but I have encountered some issues with the PC. At first I could not access anything, I just kept getting failures to run any program. I would just get a popup saying that the program was infected. Along with that I was getting bogus Fraudpack popups non stop. I was eventually (due to my quick fingers) able to run Malwarebytes and there were several infections I found and deleted. I have since run AVG, Spybot and AdAware and deleted everything from there. Unfortunately that was about a week ago since everything started. The one major thing that kept popping up before I fixed (or at least attempted to fix it) was called Exploit Neosploit Toolkit. Not sure if I got rid of it though.

Issues I am still encountering:
Ok, So after doing all of that, I am still encountering some issues. They include random tabs opening when I am on my browser (Mozilla), but not for porn or gambling or anything like that which is what confuses me. It almost seems like I have clicked a banner and a Visit Vegas tab opens???? I am also having an issue with dll errors, for instance before I repaired it through the IE Repair option I got a Winsock.dll error where for some reason my Win Sock was broken and I could not access the interent (btw, I have no clue what a Win Sock is, but I am guessing being broken is a bad thing and you need it for internet connections). The IE Repair seems to have fixed the Win Sock issue.

I see you guys are amazing here on this forum and am hoping my PC doesn't have an unfixable STD LOL....and for the record, my son is grounded until forever!!!

Thanks ahead of time for looking.

Regards,
Ryan

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.Download Link 1
Download Link 2
MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
    For instructions with screenshots, please refer to the How to use Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Guide.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
  • Exit MBAM when done.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

Download this file and save it to your desktop:

http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/grinler/rkill.scr

Double-click the file to run it. A command window will open briefly. Then run a quick scan with Malwarebytes. Post the Malwarebytes log if anything is found.
