A week or two ago, I began having a problem where Google Chrome would periodically change settings (without me doing anything) to use a proxy server, and so nothing would connect until I went into the settings and unchecked it. Because of this, I ran an MBAM scan and found a number of things, which I deleted, removed from the registry, etc. Also, until I did this, MBAM would repeatedly report that it had blocked an attempted connection by Chrome to a "suspicious website."

After this, the problem appeared to be fixed -- no suspicious tasks running, no connections to suspicious websites reported by MBAM, etc. However, yesterday some charges appeared on my iTunes account (to which I've since changed the password of course). It's possible, of course, that somebody got the password before I had removed the malware and simply only used it now, but I was hoping someone would be able to help me run through a system check using the more powerful malware scanners/removers, just to make sure there's nothing bad lying around.

Best proceedure now is to get a deeper look. Please go here....Preparation Guide ,do steps 6-9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9 which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If GMER won't run skip it and move on.

Let me know if that went well.
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

DDS ran well; I'm using a 64-bit OS so I didn't run GMER. I posted these to a new topic here.

Thanks for your help!

Ok, yes that's fine.
Now that your log is properly posted, 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 Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it 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 Malware Removal 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 Malware Removal Team members are very 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 Malware Removal 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 MRL Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

The current wait time is 1 - 5 days and ALL logs are answered.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
