I've got a Gateway E-3600 with a 128 GB IDE boot drive and a SATA 300GB data drive and 1GB of RAM
I've set up a wireless network with two laptops and a desktop on the wireless network and the Gateway hardwired into the wireless router.
I picked up the Koobface worm by accidentally clicking on the damned "Update Flash Player" link on an e-mail from a friend. I didn't meant to do it and when I realized what it was doing I shut down the computer at the switch - but apparently not before it finished installing the worm.
I ran a MacAffee scan and Advanced System Care Pro scan but wasn't able to clear the worm. Downloaded Malwarebytes Anti-Malware tool. and did a scan. It eliminated a list of trojans related to the Koobface worm. When i rebooted everything seemed fine, but after a while, it started redirecting again.
I'm rerunning Malwarebytes again disconnected from the Internet. After I eliminate the reinstalled Trojans, I intend to reboot off-line and see if I can find the sneaky little program that keeps resetting the redirect worm on my browsers. I also have Emisoft Hijackfree and A2 Free hijack software, but don't know how to use them effectively. I plan to run Glary and Advanced System Care Pro's registry cleaners before rebooting. Don't know if that will work, but if you have any ideas about what I should do further let me know. I know there's some nasty little worm buried on my hard drive, but haven't the skills to find it nor the cash to pay a pro to fix it.
Any help would be appreciated. I don't think my skills are sophisticated enough to handle Combofix or manually piddling around in the registry without some supervision. If I have to, I'll take a shot, but please make the instructions as clear as you can and please don't skip steps.
