TODAY at around 4.30am picked up Vista Home Security 2011 nasty bug. IT also installed
JVI.EXE [the odd 3 letter character].exe program
On another web site i was reading their temporary killer notice to look in APPDATA etc and delete
the odd aharacter 3 letter.exe & the other files next to the program. [I DIDN't and just slightly renamed them instead... JVI.EXE to JVI.EXE--- so it couldn't run after i used task manager to kill the process.
I'm glad i didn't delete because after i TEMP killed the entire bug process i couldn't run any programs... [any of my browsers included]
THUS i had to go back to the directories & just let it keep running a little longer so i could run programs...
IT loves to mess up my IE Browser alot and can't connect to many virus. ANYTHING to do with a SEARCH ENGINE gets redirected to BLANK PAGE.
The only reason why i can still use a BROWSER is because i have several Browsers that some use portions of IE
installed browser components & some use some components of FIREFOX & OR CHROME...
Maxthon V2, Green Browser, Crazy Browser, QTWEB Browser, Flash Peak Slim Browser, Advant Browser, ACE Explorer
Browser, The World Browser, Slepnir Browser, Sundance Browser, and some little el-quickie types...
Fastweb browser, Akoware Web View Browser, Portable Browser...
THUS so far i can at least get out on some browser that isn't 100% microsoft.
YES i'm getting pop up virus warnings but i noticed that leaving at least one pop up STAY POPPED UP & OPEN keeps this thing from popping up alot more in a hurry & allows me to keep going somewhat.
Since i got the BUGGER i tried my NORTONS and it refuses to update [LuCallBackProxy.exe = Did a search and found that is Nortons updater file. BUT needing all 6 of them running is a little much.
AND one LuComServer_3_2.exe also another Nortons updater program.
TRIED to download and run [from the download dialog box] PC TOOLS Spyware Dr but that frooze up upon partial install and don't wanna do anything.
I Was able to download the operating files for F-SECURE and run that in a JAVA BOX to do a el-quick scan and all that found was browser cookie files... WHEN i tried to do a full scan it complained it didn't have enough rights [i'm the only one on the computer and have all the rights] BUT ANYWAYS it did run but found no virus bug or the JVI added virus installed.
SINCE I've had the bug i didn't tun off the computer. THUS anything waiting to use the boot-up ONE ONCE is gonna be waiting a little longer
Any help you can provide will be greatly appriciated.
Ohhh.... Since i have never used the SAFE MODE YET on in this computer you might need to take my hand and help me do that if it's needed.
THIS bug keeps telling me my FIREWALL IS TURNED OFF and every time i click to re-start it it wants me to register the program... [Which i don't do]
WHAT i might have to do is to go back in and just RENAME some files to keep the thing from operating for awhile... BUT Then i can't run any programs. NOT even the games [I'm not heavy gammer and thus have the simple games. LIKE SOL, DOS Emulators - DOSBOX to play some games vista hates] etc.or anything else.
YES i do have mp3 & movies i have downloaded on the system.
I also have MUSIC BROADCASTING software as well. [Internet Broadcaster]
Yes i have Activeworlds registry entries [3D Virtual OnLine Reality program much like SIMS But that isn't actually installed on the main hard drives. C & D are main drives & N is a external add on & that is a 1TB drive using a USB DOCK. The others are all 16gb flash drives or one 4gb that houses Active Worlds]
I haven't tried any other virus cleaners or the one that need professional help to use yet.
AT least i haven't gotten any more pop up warning windos since i left this one up for the past several hours...
SEEMS not to like me tooo well...
The other ones keep popping up. SYSTEM ALERT [stays on top of everything] and scanner & register the program alert window.
