edit= I notice many others haveing the same problem as this here. I am trying to use TDSS Rootkit Removing Tool but even if I rename it dosent load up.

Things I forgot that I should not have, This all started with Windows fix disk as far as I can tell. But i deleted that very fast. so I cant see that anymore. This is the same as others here and very nice to know im not the only one.

Hello,
I was on a site and I noticed it downloaded a virus but I did not think it was going to be this annoying. I use Firefox and i think it is something to do with a HIDDEN addon for it and something to do with java script. But these are just a guess.

Ive used many spyware and antivirus programs to try and detect the problem.(In safe mode as well)

Malwarebytes
SuperAntiSpyware
StopZilla
Iobit Security 360
AVG
Trojan Killer
Hijack This
Some others..

All are free not paid for.

none of these seems to have fixed the problem or detect the actual problem. accept for Stopzilla.

On FREE Stopzilla it found some harmful looking viruses\malware\adware. But with it i can not delete the problems because its just free trail.

some of the things Stopzilla listed was.. Vondu a7, System tools 2011, some others and then lots of cookies with I deleted but it seems like every time I scan it has more. like something is creating them. I can see the path of the files it shows however.. its seems like they are not there like they are hidden. I have show hidden files set to ON.



Some of the other programs found other problems but i deleted them and no fix.


Things that have been happening since i got this-

=Seems to start when using browser.

=When I use Google search most the time at first links get redirected to other weird sites..

=When on browser and off, popup windows come up and asks me if i want to keep running scripts on this page. I dont know what page.. it shows something like line:###(different numbers) code:### url: it changes url every time but I think I get the same ones sometime.

= another window like that one but it says are you sure you want to leave this page? HIT ENTER TO CLOSE THIS WINDOW. I cant hit yes or no cause the window is so tall but I can move it with ALT+space and see the yes\no.

= I push X on all of these but they come right back over and over. BUT certain times its like it does not at all.. Tricked me some cause I thought some of the things I deleted with those programs fixed but then just pops up random.

= Some browser popups come up only about 5 times now. but one site is 3 of those> "http://www.therugged.com/videos/"

Ive read many forum threads about similar problems but none seem the exact same and none helped me fully. I read it could be java script virus or something that cant be detected by Malwarebytes and others. Malwarebytes has always worked for me in the past. Also read that it could be something like a rootkit virus that cant be fixed totally with out wiping.

I really did not want to wipe my drive so I come here for help. This could be trying to get my Account info from banks and other sites and I am worried.

Guess i cant Edit again.

Anyways hello again..

Thanks you guys for helping all these people! i understand your quite busy.

I was reading another forum and came across this program and I scanned with it and it found several viruses. ill show what viruses stopzilla found aswell at some point but i have to type them all out and dont have much time now. anyways ill show the files this program found.

ESET Online Scanner is the program.


Ok I guess it didnt fix the script error. does this mean java is damaged? or something?

Ok everyday it seems to get worse. and also everyday I scan with all the programs and it finds new stuff.. Stopzilla said it found 90 things but then went back to 50 something.. does Stopzilla lie?

also it seems the virus made my internet not work today when I first turned on and I used it right before I shut it down last night.

When i start in normal mode not safe mode it shows a black desktop then changes it self back after awhile.
Today, one time i restarted to go to normal mode it had a windows backdrop screen and wasnt at the desktop but it was saying it was doing something but i was was worried and just restarted and it didntt reappear.. it was similar to a windows update but I never seen it before. Now it JUST took my thing away in text boxes that shows where i am...
