I am having problems with a virus, it plays sounds like "Congratulations, you've won!" and "Oh my god, no way!" as well as music, and an annoying clicking noise (The clicking noise goes on at random for around 5 minutes) It is driving me crazy!

My current operating system is Windows XP

I am also having problems starting the computer up, i get a blue screen that says IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and i have to run a checkdisk in the command prompt in safemode.

Could someone please help, i have run multiple full system scans and they always come up with nothing.

Thank you for taking the time to look at this! :thumbsup:

It's possible that you have an infected Master Boot Record (MBR) so lets check it to be sure.

Please download bootkit_remover.rar and save it to your Desktop. <-Important!!!

You will need to extract the remover.exe file using a program capable of extracing RAR compressed files. If you don't have an extraction program, you can downlaod, install and use 7-zip.
  • Right-click on the bootkit_remover.rar file and select "extract/unzip here".
  • This will create two readme files and a file named remover.exe on your desktop.
  • Double-click on remover.exe.
    Note: Vista/Windows 7 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • A command window will open with a black screen and some data on it.
  • Right-click on the screen and choose Select All.
  • The screen will turn white. Press CTRL+C to copy the data on that screen.
  • Open Notepad and press CTRL+V, or click on the Edit tab and choose Paste.
  • Copy and paste the output from Notepad in your next reply.
  • Clcik on the black screen and Press any key on the keyboard to exit.

Your log indicates you have an unknown Master Boot Record (MBR).

Open Notepad. An easy way to do that is to press the WINKEY + R keys on your keyboard or go to Posted Image > Run..., and in the Open dialog box, type: Notepad
Click OK or press Enter.
  • Copy and paste everything in the code box below into the Untitled - Notepad.
@ECHO OFF
START remover.exe fix \\.\PhysicalDrive0
EXIT
  • Go to "File > Save As", click the drop-down box to change the "Save As Type" to "All Files" and save it as "fix.bat" on your desktop.
  • Double-click fix.bat to run the script.
  • A window will open and close quickly, this is normal.
When done, rerun Bootkit Remover once more by double-clicking on it.
  • A command window will open with a black screen and some data on it.
  • Right-click on the screen and choose Select All.
  • The screen will turn white. Press CTRL+C to copy the data on that screen.
  • Open Notepad and press CTRL+V, or click on the Edit tab and choose Paste.
  • Copy and paste the output from Notepad in your next reply.
  • Clcik on the black screen and Press any key on the keyboard to exit.
Important Note: While fixing the Master Boot Record (MBR) is generally safe, there is a small risk of damaging the operating system so that it will not boot up or the partitions may become corrupted. I recommend you have your Windows CD available which will allow recovering the boot code via the Windows Recovery Console (XP) or Recovery Environment (Vista, Windows 7) in case of any problems, or install the XP Recovery Console before proceeding with the above fix. Then if any problems occur, the links below explain how to use and repair the MBR:

Try doing an online scan to see if it finds anything else (i.e. remanants) that the other scans may have missed.

Please perform a scan with Eset Online Antiivirus Scanner.
This scan requires Internet Explorer to work. Vista/Windows 7 users need to run Internet Explorer as Administrator.
To do this, right-click on the IE icon in the Start Menu or Quick Launch Bar on the Taskbar and select Run As Administrator from the context menu.
  • Click the green Posted Image button.
  • Read the End User License Agreement and check the box:
  • Check Posted Image.
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Check Posted Image
  • Check Remove found threats and Scan potentially unwanted applications. (If given the option, choose "Quarantine" instead of delete.)
  • Click the Start button.
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer.
  • If offered the option to get information or buy software at any point, just close the window.
  • The scan will take a while so be patient and do NOT use the computer while the scan is running. Keep all other programs and windows closed.
  • When the scan completes, push Posted Image
  • Push Posted Image, and save the file to your desktop as ESETScan.txt.
  • Push the Posted Image button, then Finish.
  • Copy and paste the contents of ESETScan.txt in your next reply.
Note: A log.txt file will also be created and automatically saved in the C:\Program Files\EsetOnlineScanner\ folder.
If you did not save the ESETScan log, click Posted Image > Run..., then type or copy and paste everything in the code box below into the Open dialogue box:

C:\Program Files\ESET\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt
  • Click Ok and the scan results will open in Notepad.
  • Copy and paste the contents of log.txt in your next reply.
-- Some online scanners will detect existing anti-virus software and refuse to cooperate. You may have to disable the real-time protection components of your existing anti-virus and try running the scan again. If you do this, remember to turn them back on after you are finished.

Workin g on a pc with the same virus but the desktop just has Dell background and cursor. Right click, hitting the Windows Logo key do nada. After 20 minutes IE comes up with a hijacked page and the voices start but.......Tried fixboot and chkdsk which did fix an error on the drive but still a blank screen. Therefore I can download nothing to the Desktop - thoughts???

Welcome to BC crazygravy

If you have an issue or problem you would like to discuss, please start your own topic. Doing that will help to avoid the confusion that often occurs when trying to help two or more members at the same time in the same thread. Even if your problem is similar to the original poster's problem, the solution could be different based on the kind of hardware, software, system requirements, etc. you are using and the presence of other malware. Further, posting for assistance in someone else's topic is not considered proper forum etiquette.

Thanks for your cooperation.
