I just came off of a big problem booting, where I had to repair install windows. Afterwards, it wouldn't let me activate windows because of a malware issue. I ran Malwarebytes to clean it up, and afterwards it seemed like smoothe sailing. However, I think I still have no fixed the source problem, and possibly contracted a new malware or virus in the mean time.

Firstly, I've had a slow start since the repair install, once Windows logs in, it takes a while to get fully going. I initially chocked that up to the repai install and the os being out of date, but I guess that's a symptom.

After a few restarts Explorer crashed a few times, as well as on a few shut downs explorer.exe would hang, along with a "HiddenFax" process hang as well, but these do not happen every time. DrWatsons Debugger will also crash too.

Occasionally it seems things will load out of order too. I had avast! start up and was trying to get it to update before the log-on sound played.

The big tip off is that I keep getting pop ups for Babylon 9 software in IE, which I know dumb pop ups are a big deal, having dealth with virtumonde at least 3 times.

Basically, aside from those symptoms, I'm just getting a slow experience and I don't know what the proper disinfection routine is this season. All help is appreciated dearly!

I am having the same problem. Ran Malaware Bytes, Anit-Spywaree, Securities Essentials, deleted in add/remove programs. No luck.

To give you any hope Mike, I updated my Avast! and Ad-Aware to the latest versions and ran a full scan in safe mode.

It took... well, avast took little more than 4 hours, and Ad-Aware took more than ten. Avast found 1 entry, and Ad-Aware got about 8. Going to do another search with Spybot later.

But now that I've rebooted, the pop-ups have stopped so far. I also went into Spybot's start-up manager and turned some other things off, such as Roxio which was crashing on start-up, and some .dll's that the scans removed that tried running at start-up.

Hello, please run these...
Please download the TDSS Rootkit Removing Tool (TDSSKiller.exe) and save it to your Desktop. <-Important!!!
Be sure to download TDSSKiller.exe (v2.4.0.0) from Kaspersky's website and not TDSSKiller.zip which appears to be an older version 2.3.2.2 of the tool.
  • Double-click on TDSSKiller.exe to run the tool for known TDSS variants.
    Vista/Windows 7 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • If TDSSKiller does not run, try renaming it.
  • To do this, right-click on TDSSKiller.exe, select Rename and give it a random name with the .com file extension (i.e. 123abc.com). If you do not see the file extension, please refer to How to change the file extension.
  • Click the Start Scan button.
  • Do not use the computer during the scan
  • If the scan completes with nothing found, click Close to exit.
  • If malicious objects are found, they will show in the Scan results - Select action for found objects and offer three options.
  • Ensure Cure (default) is selected, then click Continue > Reboot now to finish the cleaning process.
  • A log file named TDSSKiller_version_date_time_log.txt (i.e. TDSSKiller.2.4.0.0_27.07.2010_09.o7.26_log.txt) will be created and saved to the root directory (usually Local Disk C:).
  • Copy and paste the contents of that file in your next reply.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
