Well I'm new here and I'm having some issues with my laptop. I'll describe my problems but I don't know if they are related so if I'm confusing you guys just tell me and I'll try to isolate the symptons =)
By the way, I'm not American so sorry for my English mistakes.
My machine is an old Toshiba Laptop with Windows XP, Media Center Edition, Version 2002, Service Pack 3.
Intel CPU T2050 @ 1.60 GHz
1GB de Ram
I also have a McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.7.0i provided by my university. I don't know if you need this, but the DAT version is 6148.0000 and the engine analysis version is 5400.1158.
I use a IObit Security 360 v1.50 and the CCleaner v2.36.1233 to clean my system and to erase registry entries after uninstall a program.
I've Google Chrome 7.0.517.41, IE 7.0.5730.13 and Firefox 3.6.11
Most of the time I use Chrome. I only use IE to acces my university database via the Client VPN Cisco AnyConnect version 2.3.2016
I only use Firefox when I need to open some MS Office documents cause the Chrome doesn't open these files directly in the browser window.
My problems started some weeks ago when my Chrome started to open by itself showing the address :
From time to time I also started to have some MSN messenger windows opening automatically with a link for some sex site I suppose.
Today I decided to uninstall some softwares (Google Desktop, EndNote and Open Workbench) because I don't have a powerfull machine and it was very slow.
After restart the computer I received a message :
Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
I didn't copy all the message but I remember that the szModVer was unknown.
After that my wireless connection stop to connect automatically and I had to retype my network password.
Also, the VPN Client from my university didn't connect.
I checked with the McAfee and it founded SUSP_IRP_MJ_CREATE trojan. The folder location was unknown and it gave me the name TDSS.c!mem. At the end the McAfee said that the malware had been removed.
I isolate my Laptop from my home network and re-installed the VPN Client from the university. I don't know why but it is working properly now and the error message from Windows (Generic Host...) disappeared. As I said, I don't know if these issues are related or just an unhappy coincidence but I hope you can help me to get rid of the SUSP_IRP_MJ_CREATE and the opening pages from www.learningbasement.com
That's all (I guess)
Thank you very much for your help
