As many before me, I seem to have picked up the ping.exe malware trojan/virus. I have read that it is a password reader trojan, so I've been careful not to go to sensitive websites.

Since I started noticing the ping.exe program on my task manager window about 2 weeks ago, I've tried the following programs:

Stopzilla (free version)
ARO 2011 (paid version)
Malwarebytes (free version)

I have printed up the prep guide.
Thank you for your help.

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, what you have done to resolve them, and a link to this topic.

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.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.
