I'm typing this from my laptop.
The house PC got infected with that sorta virus and I want to know how to fix it.
I noticed a lot of users have this sorta virus but idk if each case is unique or if its a general sorta case.

I'm going to try this:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic229334.html

But I want to make sure that it won't kill my computer if it isn't exactly the same xD And if it doesn't work I'll come back here.
A lot of users have the same case as me I think - malware trying to make me activate some sorta anti-spyware program or something, random lewd internet pop-ups, warnings, also the task bar has like 500 windows update icons. There are two windows that I can't move - one says ATTENTION! SPYWARE ALERT! with a shield and all that, and the other says Antivirus Software Alert and is in the bottom right hand corner. They both have that windows shield on the bar where theres usually an X and all that, and both bars are red. Also that little windows error thing that has the "application cannot be executed..."
Task Manager won't start either.
:3 please help. In the mean time I might try that forum's suggestion cause we're kinda restless and we're not sure if it gets worse the longer you wait or whatever (also the task bar is freaking me out/making me mad. too many icons eating my start bar).

Edit: Ok...Internet Explorer at the house PC wouldn't let me go to the forum post. And mozilla saves the MBAM install file wherever it wants so when I want to go to the file location the folder closes before I can do anything -_-

Edit: Yeah apparantly 'explorer.exe' is infected. The right corner where the time is and stuff on the start bar keeps having that speech bubble saying the same thing as the error notification, but the .exe file is different each time. Like every second, the previous bubble only disappears cause its being replaced by a new one. I guess all my files are being consumed by this malware demon. Or its a lie, but idk.

Edit: Ok, so the house PC is Windows Vista anyway xD and Ima cry. o_o
Edit: I'm gonna try that ComboFix thing o_o From here:
http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f100/problems-with-viruses-and-antivirus-software-391140.html
Somebody stop me now. AGH DAMN VIAGRA POP-UP. I bet they created this virus, dammit. Hope this works. Though if I can't even install it I'm gonna laugh, ahahahaha. -_-

Edit: Its for XP -_- Someone just help me please....

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic372873.html you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.
