Hi, things got serious Saturday when I started fighting a 'Disk Fixer' fake alarm. It was an obvious fake. I applied some things I found at bleeping computer, but I keep getting a window popping up that says;

'Internet Explorer Script Error'
'An Error has occurred in the script on this page'
- blah blah blah -
URL hxxp://ui.mevio.com/..blah..blah..

Also, mystery audio (strange podcast, weird audio feed, mysterious sound) (right after reboot) comes out of my speakers. Sometimes, this last boot it died quickly. I do not have Media player or Internet Explorer open at all. Firefox is my default browser.

I have run, with no problems found;

Malware Bytes
Avira Scan
Spybot S&D
ESET online scanner
Microsoft online malicious scanner
housecall.trendmicro online scanner


If I knew what script was running, I would probably delete it. I think it has even popped up in safe mode, but I am not sure. I have tried running scanners in safe mode and regular mode, but scanners are not finding any problems.

This computer has been less than pristine for some time, I would like to save it, anyone interested? I am pretty good at following instructions.

thanks

I am having something like this on a Win XP Pro computer. I have narrowed it down to when Windows explore.exe starts. If I terminate it from the task manager and restart it using the Run prompt and boom script error. The site that it says is causing the error is different every time. When I turn on internet explorer error reporting and visit the site it says is causing the problem using internet explore it says there is no issues. This makes me think the "error" is a fake somehow. If I find anything out I will post here.

Without a doubt, there is something to this. I think two things. Do you have strange, wierd, mystery or mysterious audio playing? Other than these two problems, my computer is running pretty well. I worry about the keylogger aspects, but every scan I find seems to be OK.

@ Scott Werkema,

Please start your own topic.

@ zeroonetwo,

I see that you have posted a topic here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic392309.html

@ movtmarker,

I see that you have posted your logs here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic392904.html


Now that you two have posted logs, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take a few more days to get a response but your logs will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.
