So I thought I was just having issues hooking up with my router. furthur investigation trned up a Zeroaccess and then even FURTHER analysis leads to some form of disturbiong malware/adware on IE wich I never use... except Im hearing Wendy's commercials for Flatbread over and over again in like , some kind of Audio Cascade ... like the second one starts  after the first one gets to the second sentacne , then the third after it gets to the third, etc.... so I can hear 5-10 versions of wendy's flatbread commerciuals, and then what sounds like a daytime chat show giving me cooking tips...


Tried System Restore (no restore points exist for the history of my machine of course) Tried most of the usual suspects, (MBAM, etc) but they find nothing wrong, couldnt get anything to really get me back online, and the only way I can get Internet now is through PDANet on my cellphone tethered. Dunno why that works but it does,


HOWEVER... when I reboot there is a BRIEF window wherein I have a glimmer of IP4 connectivity. It never lasts 5 minutes.


And as I was attacking this as a Networking Issue I am going to put down the Mouse and Slowly Back Away until someone that knows what the HELL is going on in my haunted machine tells me what's up.


Thanks in advance.

ZeroAccess rootkit requires elevated help.


Please follow the instructions in THIS GUIDE starting at Step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it HERE. Please include a description of your computer issues, what you have done to resolve them, and a link to this topic.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient.

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