I'm wondering if anyone has experienced this or heard of it. Malwarebytes registered 25,000 hits. Basically 7 or 8 different virus names comes up. No root kits. I've run several other AV programs and no hits. (Besides a few pieces of adware.) I'm working with Malwarebytes to see what's up. Thanks ~ jeremy

Hello arinborn,are you saying YOUR MBAM logs shows 25,000 pieces of malware in it?

Or is tis some type of News. I cannot determine exactly what you are saying.

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

He is referring to malware on his PC.

Look at this - http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=112811 - for his post on Malwarebytes Website.

AdvancedSetup has already replied and asked for a DDS log.

Since you are receiving assistance from a trained Helper on another site, you should refrain from asking for help here or anywhere else. Further, following advice outside of that thread may cause confusion for the Helper who is assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process or make things worst which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

If you followed any other advice already, please ensure you inform the Helper who is already providing you with assistance.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. If you still need assistance after your system has been reviewed and you have been cleared at that site, please start a new topic. If you have any questions please PM me or another moderator.

Thanks for your cooperation.
