I'm running win7 64, I use Chrome almost exclusively, and occasionally use IE and Firefox.
This all started when I started receiving a lot of spam on my normally clean yahoo email acct, and quite a few popups.
I used CCleaner to find an invalid registry key, labeled "smearware". This was after I had performed or experienced the following:
A trojan detection and clean by Microsoft Security Essentials, subsequent scans have no detection.
I uninstall MSE,
I install PC Tools Spyware Doctor and Antivirus, which scans, detects and cleans a different trojan, subsequent scans have no detection
I installed the Windows Updates from Tuesday Feb 8, and updated Chrome.
I run ComboFix successfully, I have logs, and will post when requested.
I run CCleaner successfully, logs will be posted when requested.
I run PC Tools Registry Mechanic (regularly every day) successfully.
I full scan in SDA (no detection).
(a few days of rampant web browsing, with occasional popups, CCleaner, RM, and SDA, with decent cleaning results but no detects from SDA)
I uninstall SDA, and the uninstall failed to execute, giving me a permissions error.
I disable wireless conection, and SDA uninstall still fails.
I disable SNMP, SDA uninstall is successful.
I used CCleaner to find an invalid registry key, labeled "smearware".
Successful run of Combofix, which cleaned about 300MB of data, per the log after reboot.
Now I try to run Combofix again, and I get an error during the initial progress bar (about 90% completion):
I downloaded a new copy from bleepingcomputer, and I still get this error.
"You appear to have a corrupt download.
Please download a fresh copy of ComboFix.exe
You can close ComboFix by clicking the right corner of the progress bar."
Any help would be very appreciated. I'll try and answer any questions, it may take a little time for me to find names of Trojans and what not thru the logs.
