I am running XP SP3 on an older Dell desktop.
About 2 weeks back I had the MSE virus on "my" profile, and followed the tutorial, used RKill and MBAM to successfully remove the virus.
I then ran full scans using McAfee AV and Spybot Search & Destroy, which removed some additional items.
Things are mostly working fine, however, I seem to be getting some errors popping up, such as:
1. Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close.
2. IExplore.exe Application Error - The instruction at "0x00000000" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The instruction could not be "read". Click on OK to terminate the program.
Not sure what these mean, or why it is happening. If I click on the OK for the iexplore error, not much happens.
On occasion, the Taskbar turns white. Really weird.
Today I am dealing with the Thinkpoint virus on "wife" profile, which appeared a couple days ago, and MBAM is just finished running after 2 hours as I'm writing this on my laptop. It found 11 items, which I deleted. After the reboot, Thinkpoint did not appear and the "wife" desktop loads normally. I launched IE, and it opened fine, but then a new tab opened up with the url http://trkit.s3.amazonaws.com/regcure/index3.html and a popup box appears that says "Errors have been found in your operating system registry! Click to download free registry cleaner software."
I'm pretty sure this is more malware.
Should I be running MBAM again???
Some other I have questions are:
Does running MBAM work on BOTH profiles?
Should I be re-running it again on "my" profile later on?
Should I be running either/both McAfee and SS&D after? Or should I be running something else like Secunia?
Is there a benefit to running a System Restore back to the beginning of the month (pre-infection) at some point, and if so, at what point?
I guess I'm trying to figure out what to do now.
Thanks in advance!
