First let me say when I have had issues, I have always trusted this site.
I was using a Vista laptop and it started having issues. I went online and tried to fix it myself. It was getting slow and very busy. It started losing internet connectivity, but the router was fine. I would have to reconnect to server, often! Att sent me a new wireless N router. I was able to connect for a few minutes and now not at all. Att wont help as they say it is a "computer issue". They said it was connected to a "group". Well we have a older laptop(the one I am on) and it has issues now. It has not been being used because if it gets bumped it messes up and have to push on hard-drive and restart, (long story) Anyway... Since I have no other options, I started using it. It is XP. It was running at 100% cpu on the iexplore. I would disable it. I figured it was a virus, went into hklm and changed the shell to correct setting from Explorer to explorer. This helped alot. Now my google looked different, and the speakers were making a noise like someone touching a microphone. The volumn was already choppy when we stopped using it long ago. Most likely a virus even then. While I was checking folders I went into logged firewall events and this computer was hit thousand's of times from my IP address of the Vista, on 5/27. Also today while watching the task manager i saw ping flash one time. I dont think thats normal. When looking at networking tab of the Task manager it showed activity at the bottom. I dont want to be part of a group domain. I ran a combo fix because I am sick of problems. Can someone help me check this computer and then maybe the vista one next? I think I have multiple viruses.

Reference: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic456348.html/page__p__2724482#entry2724482


Now that you have properly posted a malware log topic, 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.

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.

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

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.

Louis
