A couple of days ago I got infected with what seemed to be the Security Tool malware. It blocked all internet and other programs and gave me all the annoying popups you'd expect.
I have Malwarebytes already installed, so I ran rkill and then Malwarebytes in safe mode and thought I cleaned it. But I then ran Spybot and it found Vurtomonde. Malwarebytes didn't find it. I have since run both Malwarebytes and Spybot in safe mode and they tell me I'm clean, but I'm still having problems.
1. I bought the Malwaebytes upgrade and it's telling me it's blocking outgoing attempts to questionable websites
2. I am periodically unable to connect to the internet. Right now I'm using Firefox off a USB drive, which seems to be the only way I can get a wireless connection.
3. My computer is running slowly, and is crashing unexpectedly. It will also hang up, so that it takes several minutes to shut down or load a program.
Ideas? Help? I'm running Windows XP.
