Yes, as of yesterday... it seems my computer has been infected. I am not exactly sure what virus I have. At first, I figured out that it was the VirusBursters. I went in and got that problem fixed, dl'd some anti-virus programs and ran some spyware removal, so I ended up getting rid of the Critical System Error message and signs of VirusBursters. I came to my computer today, and there is still some infection of the like. I keep getting pop-ups, while not surfing. The latest one was www.thesecurepool.com saying Attention: Virus Detected. And I now have the system warning yeild sign that keeps flashing in my taskbar. The message say Security Alert: NetWorm-i.virus@fp Can somebody help me out here. I already have the SmitFraudfix file as I had to use that for the VirusBursters.

Mod Edit: Topic moved to a more appropriate forum.

Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune & save it to your desktop. DO NOT use yet.

Go here and follow the instructions for using SmitfraudFix. Redownload smitfraudfix. The tool is updated frequently to detect newer variants of the infection.

You will have to extract the zip file to you Desktop.

After using the tool as instructed, reboot again in "SAFE MODE" and double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.

I have split your HJT log away from this thread and moved it into the HJT forum.

You can find it here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/70562/system-alert-networm-ivirusfp/

Now that your log is posted there, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files on your own, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make may cause confusion for the member assisting you and complicate the malware removal process.

Please be patient and wait for a response from an HJT Team member. It may take a while to get a response because team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. While waiting, please DO NOT make another reply to your log until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have no replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response, a team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.
