A few weeks back.. I got spyfalcon. Yet I stumbled upon bleeping computer which saved me from it. My computer was fine for the next week until it got spyfalcon again. I wasnt downloading anything and my internet activity was very low. I got rid of it again but this time, it left some trouble. Pop-ups from Internet explorer ( I use Mozilla firefox) keep coming up. They dont show a pop-up but here is a pic of what happens. http://putfile.com/pic.php?pic=3/6913443467.jpg&s=x10
This will minimize my gaming, interrupt me from work, but the strange thing is that I am not on the internet ( The internet cord is still in my pc though) I dont really want to reformat my pc because I had just fixed it not to long ago. Any suggestions other than just a pop-up blocker?

Hi Man on the Edge. A popup-blocker is not going to stop the windows shown in the image above. That is not technically a popup. It is a message from IE saying that it cannot run activex controls.

Since there are legitimate activex controls, the security settings in IE might be preventing something that is legitimate. There are also malicious activex controls. Unless we know the control itself it is impossible to determineif it's Ok or not.

You might want to post a HijackThis log in the HijackThis forum and we can see if there are any remnants of SpyFalcon still on the system (or some other malicious files).

Follow the guidelines in the link below to post a HijackThis log:

Sorry man. I hate to say this but your solution did not help. It said it got rid of a bunch of stuff but now the pop-ups are much more frequent and now the web pages actually display. I'm truly on "the edge" of just reformating but there has to be a better solution.

Old Timer one of our resident malware experts did offer help, and it is a tried and proven method. But you chose to ignore the help offered.

Sorry man. I hate to say this but your solution did not help.

If you had followed the instructions given, you would have been assisted by a qualified expert anti-malware technician. My suggestion is to follow the original help offered.

Follow the guide OldTimer linked you to. There are instructions there for posting a HijackThis log. Here is the link again:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/

That's the process, run those apps first then post a log. And make sure it's in this forum:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/posthjtlog.html

It's common for this malware to come in bunches so in all probability there is something else on your system that needs to go. Getting a log posted will start the process.

But you've been told such before. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...ndpost&p=244939

Please stick to one topic and be patient. You've had several people try to help you, but there is no instant fix and there are more ahead of you. If you want the problem solved you need to work with us. Just browse the HJT forum to see what I mean.

You say you followed the instructions but you didn't do them all or you would have a log posted in the right forum already. We'll be glad to help you--and we're good at it. If you follow all instructions exactly. :thumbsup:

Man, you just don't get it do you? There's clearly a lack of understanding in this thread, but it's certainly not on this end. The whole point of this thread has been to get you to post a HijackThis log, that's the best help you'll get to remove the trojan that is on your system.

Yeah I looked at your log, but I don't have the time to jump right into it. And I'll not have any of the helpers that might take it on waste their time if you are going to attack the very people who are willing to take time out of their lives to help you--for free I might add.

So you are hereby suspended and all your threads are closed. There are plenty of other sites where you can get help. But I suggest before you visit any other sites that you study this page for a while:
