Hi,

I recently went to a movie watching website and my computer has not been the same ever since. My problems include:

1. Spybot and Malwarebytes are not able to find any viruses after the first round removal of viruses (see attachments).
2. After booting maybe 5 minutes in, the computer fan starts spinning fast as a result of scvhost.exe taking up to 70-80% of the cpu an crashes the computer.
3. Redirects to ads from google searches
4. TDSSKiller.exe does not open past 80%


I've tried doing system restores to before when the viruses came and it seems to have no effect. My problem seems to be closely related to http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic392645.html

I would greatly appreciate any assistance.

Note: Attachment 3 depicts a file that I noticed was downloaded around the same time as I got the 'virus'. I have since manually deleted it.

Hi noknojon,

Thank you for your reply. I have posted it at: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic394699.html.

Just out of curiosity, I was trying to attach the same files and it said my attachment quota is filled. Is the only way around this to delete the attachments in my profile and then re-upload?

Thanks

I merged the two topics into one here.

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at Step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic394919.html 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 several days to get a response but your log 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.
