Ok, I have several problems here, but one is a program called Bin Hope Ford i can't get rid of. I have Lavasoft antispyware and spybot but neither can get rid of this program. In fact my Lavasoft has been freezing up, even after i uninstalled and reinstalled it. The only place i can find Bin Hope is in my processes with Ctl +Alt+Del, and it takes up 90+ % of my CPU usage, I manually shut it down and it pops up again. I can't take it anymore....Help?

Please go to http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ and conduct their free online scan. Let it eliminate what it finds.

Then go to this topic and read about how to submit a HiJackThis log: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/

Then, submit the log in this forum: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/

Good luck!

I went to the site and tried to run the scan three times, but my computer crashed three times before it could start.

Try Panda ActiveScan instead.
[Watch the Address bar in IE. You may receive alerts that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Insall ActiveX component]
1. Click "Scan Your PC".
2. A new window will open. Click "Check Now!".
3. Fill in your registration and click "Scan Now!".
4. You may receive an alert on the address bar that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Insall ActiveX component.
5. A dialogue box will appearing asking "Do you want to install this software?"" Name: asinst.cab.
6. Select "Install" to download the ActiveX controls that allows ActiveScan to run.
7. If running MSAS beta you may receive an alert that an IE ActiveX program requires your approval. Click "Allow".
8. Select a device to scan: Click on "Local Disks" [allow it to Auto Clean].
9. When the scan completes, if anything malicious is detected, click the "See Report button", then "Save Report" to your desktop.

Then follow usasma's instructions.

Ok, i tried that too. For some reason i cant use the scan programs right off the browsers. The two offered kept my computer crashing and rebooting. >.< argh! I tried to download a couple programs to see if they would work. They did, found a couple nasty buggers. But the programs wanted me to purchase the full version before even removing what they found! So if there are any programs I could download that would be a really big help i think.

Are you using Internet Explorer to run the scans?
Firefox and other Mozilla based browsers will not work.

You have to use IE and have Active X enabled.

Anti-malware freeware (You can run as many of these as you wish. Generally there is no conflict between these and you should always run several)

*AdAware SE: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/

*Spybot S&D: http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html

*the two most important to have!

Microsoft Antispyware Beta: http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/s...re/default.mspx

SpywareBlaster: http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html

Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool (Win XP and Win 2000):
http://www.microsoft.com/security/malwareremove/default.mspx

AČ - Free from http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4281.html . Run it, click Search for Updates, then click Scan.


CWShredder
CW Shredder removes some variants of spyware known as the Coolwebsearch Trojan. The Trojan takes advantage of a flaw in a key component of Windows -- Microsoft's version of the Java Virtual Machine -- to install itself via popups often found on porn and illegal software (a.k.a. "warez") sites. Run CWShredder after installing, and have it look for updates. Then click the "Fix" button, and the program will both scan and fix any problems it finds. If your system does not have this kind of spyware, it will give you the good news.
Freeware

MBSA is an easy-to-use tool designed for the IT professional that helps small and medium businesses determine their security state in accordance with Microsoft security recommendations and offers specific remediation guidance.

oookay. I'm sorry, I'm still fighting my PC. I ran some of those downloads and they came up clean. Except now my lavasoft was able to run and cleaned out some files. But now I can't start internet explorer without it freezing up. So I can't run those browser based scans, and the one that will run off firefox still freezes when i click it to scan.

OK, no reason to fight the scans any longer. It's probably the malware fighting the scan and it's not going to help anything just to keep crashing your system.

Please follow these directions from my first post:

Then go to this topic and read about how to submit a HiJackThis log: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/

Then, submit the log in this forum: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/
