A customer sent me an .odg file to view for bidding purposes. I have nothing for this and found "Free File Viewer for ODG" and made the mistake of downloading it. It put several files on my drive: BucksBee, NetAssistant, InstallQUpdater, IWantThis. I uninstalled all of the files, but found it has rendered my Internet Explorer almost useless. It creates the most bizaar pop ups and and most pages I get "a script is running in the back ground" pop up that when clciking "No" does nothing.

I ran malwarebytes which found 17 infections, but froze before finishing.

I ran an Avast scan and it found 2 infections then froze 60% of the way through.

Each time I had to reboot the computer.

Would this warrent running a combofix?

Hello Joseph, I moved this from XP to Am I Infected.

Can you post what MBAM and /or ESET found.

Reboot into Safe Mode with Networking
How to enter safe mode(XP/Vista)
Using the F8 Method
Restart your computer.
When the machine first starts again it will generally list some equipment that is installed in your machine, amount of memory, hard drives installed etc. At this point you should gently tap the F8 key repeatedly until you are presented with a Windows XP Advanced Options menu.
Select the option for Safe Mode with Networking using the arrow keys.
Then press enter on your keyboard to boot into Safe Mode
.


Please download TDSSKiller.zip and and extract it.
  • Run TDSSKiller.exe.
  • Click on Change Parameters
  • Put a check in the box of Detect TDLFS file system
  • Click Start scan.
  • When it is finished the utility outputs a list of detected objects with description.
    The utility automatically selects an action (Cure or Delete) for malicious objects.
    The utility prompts the user to select an action to apply to suspicious objects (Skip, by default). Let the options as it is and click Continue
  • Let reboot if needed and tell me if the tool needed a reboot.
  • Click on Report and post the contents of the text file that will open.

    Note: By default, the utility outputs the log into system disk (it is usually the disk with installed operating system, C:\) root folder. The Log have a name like: TDSSKiller.Version_Date_Time_log.txt.

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
