I use AVG Free and Microsoft Outlook. Lately I've been noticing that in the AVG Virus Vault there are a lot of emails that say things like, "The attached email contains content which violates our email policy and has been returned." At first I thought that they were just spoofed emails, but the address isn't one I normally use or share, and I'm concerned that my email program may have been infected and be spewing out infected emails.

Also, I use a wireless receiver that plugs into a USB port in order to access the internet. Lately it will sometimes drop, but in kind of a cycle, where it will turn off, then on, then off, then on again every few seconds. I don't think it's the device itself, since I swapped it out with another of the same kind and still encountered the problem. My gut instinct is that it's a USB problem of some kind, though switching ports doesn't always solve the problem, it does seem to mitigate it for awhile. Also, sometimes the internet light on the device flickers even when I'm not doing anything to access the internet or using the computer at all. I understand that a program could be checking for updates, but it seems to be going on for awhile, and it worries me.

Can you help me verify that a virus isn't causing these problems? I've run AVG Free and Spyware S&D, and neither have found anything worse than tracking cookies lately.

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help. No one is ignored here.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.

If you have not done so, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Upon completing the steps below another staff member will review and take the steps necessary with you to get your machine back in working order clean and free of malware.

If you have already posted a DDS log, please do so again, as your situation may have changed.
Use the 'Add Reply' and add the new log to this thread.

Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan:
  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explaination about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
  • Notepad will open with the results.
  • Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
  • Close the program window, and delete the program from your desktop.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run. After downloading the tool, disconnect from the internet and disable all antivirus protection. Run the scan, enable your A/V and reconnect to the internet.

Information on A/V control HERE

We also need a new log from the GMER anti-rootkit scanner. Please first disable any CD emulation programs using the steps found in this topic:

Why we request you disable CD Emulation when receiving Malware Removal Advice

Then create another GMER log and post it as an attachment to the reply where you post your new DDS log. Instructions on how to properly create a GMER log can be found here:

How to create a GMER log


If I have been helping you and I do not reply within 48hours, feel free to send me a PM.
