Windows XP Home Edition, using free antivirus program. While online pop ups occur trying to get me to buy antivirus software. Pop ups read as following: "Antivirus software alert.....Vulnerabilities found, upgrade........(will prompt me to "Activate antivirus spyware or Stay unprotected"). "Infiltration Alert, Your computer is being attacked by an internet virus. It could be a password-stealing attack, a trojan-dropper or simular. Details; Attack from: 106.32.224.121, port 37941
Attacked port: 45489
Threat: Bankerfox.A
Do you want block this attack? YES NO
From the bottom tab will get "Window Security Alert Windows reports that computer is infected. Antivirus software helps to protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. Click here for here for the scan your computer. Your system might be at risk now." "AV Security suite" in the form of a shield appears as icon on bottom tab. When I try to execute an application such as open add or delete programs in the control panel I get a pop up: "Security Warning, Application cannot be executed. The file regedit.exe is infected. Do you want to activate your antiviris software now? YES NO
Stay online long enough and will be directed to IE(I use Mozilla Firefox) to a porno site. Had this exact same virus on my laptop at work and my tech guy had to use combofix to get rid of it. Want to do the same at home but not that familuar with
combofix.

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.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
