When I turned on my pc w/Win95 OS there was and still is a green window that says XXX Adult Rated Movies - in Italian. There are numerous programs added: e1explorer, exp1orer, Plug&Play, W1inMoviePlugIn, WinMoviePlugin. This window comes up often:

Impossibile trovare la pagina
La pagina cercata stata rimossa, il nome della pagina stato modificato o non disponibile al momento.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Provare a eseguire le operazioni seguenti:

Verificare che l'indirizzo immesso nella barra degli indirizzi sia stato digitato nel modo corretto.

Aprire la pagina iniziale , quindi cercare i collegamenti alle informazioni desiderate.
Per cercare un altro collegamento, fare clic sul pulsante Indietro.
Fare clic sul pulsante Cerca per ricercare informazioni su Internet.



HTTP 404 - File non trovato
Internet Explorer
* * * * * * *
I have tried all day to delete all of this and have been unable to. Please help me. I did a lot of internet research over the weekend but not here. I really don't know what to do. It doesn't come up on uninstall, add/delete programs. Help, help - my young grandchild will be here tomorrow and will be using the computer.

Moved to a more appropriate forum. ~acklan~

The problem is that you are using an obsolete operating system that may not be supported by current malware removal programs.

Try some of these malware removal aps:
Spybot S&D:
Update Aug 2006 - Spybot by default now ignores certain products such as New.Net and Sidestep for no good reason. New.Net compromises the WinSock stack by routing all your DNS queries through the NewDotNet.DLL. To enable detection go to "Settings", "Ignore products", "All products" Tab, right click on "Product", left-click on "Deselect all".

SpywareBlaster:

Trend Micro antivirus and malware scan:
http://housecall-beta.trendmicro.com/en/st...orp.asp?id=scan

Etrust Anti-virus web scanner
http://www3.ca.com/securityadvisor/virusinfo/scan.aspx.

Avast Online scan
http://onlinescan.avast.com/

F Secure online scan
http://support.f-secure.com/ols/start.html

Ewido Online scan
http://www.ewido.net/en/onlinescan/

Trojan scans
Sygate Trojanscan
http://scan.sygatetech.com/pretrojanscan.html

Windows Security Trojanscan
http://windowsecurity.com/trojanscan
See instructions for it here:
http://www.windowsecurity.com/trojanscan/trojanscan.asp

Parasite scan from Aumha:
http://www.aumha.org/a/noads.php
or here:
http://www.aumha.org/win5/a/noads2.htm


Again, the problem is that I don't know if any of these will run on pre-XP or Windows 2000 systems. Try them.



Try using some of these web based scans using Internet Explorer:

What type of anti-virus are you using and when was the last time you ran a scan? Have you performed any anti-spyware scans? Have your tried doing your scans in "SAFE MODE"?

If you don't have any anti-malware programs see BC's List of Virus & Malware Resources. Download and scan with both Ad-Aware and Spybot S&D.

If you don't have an anti-virus, choose and install only one from the list. There are also links for performing some on-line anti-virus scans which you can try as well.

If you cannot install an anti-virus because of the malware on you computer try this:
Download Sysclean Package & save it to your desktop.
  • Create a new folder on drive "C:\" ("C:\New Folder") and rename it Sysclean.
  • Place the sysclean.com inside that folder.
  • Then download the latest Virus Pattern Files (lptXXX.zip).
  • Extract the lptXXX.zip pattern file into the same folder you created for sysclean.com.
  • DISABLE your current anti-virus software. Some anti-virus programs such as Avast will alert you to a virus attack when running sysclean so it's best to disable them first.
  • Reboot into "SAFE MODE".
  • Open the Sysclean folder and double-click on sysclean.com to run.
  • It will take some time to complete. Be patient and let it clean whatever it finds.
  • Exit when done and re-enable your anti-virus program.
Note: When using Sysclean its best to use the Administrator's account or an account with Administrative rights otherwise you will not have the rights to scan some locations resulting in Access is denied log entries.

See Using the Trend Micro System Cleaner for detailed instructions.

The problem folks, maybe you all missed it, is that this is Windows 95!
The poster clearly stated that!

You must think Windows 95 to help the poster.
Not Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP or whatever other version Microsoft deems fit.
Back to basics. Windows 95.

No currrent antivirus or malware tools will work with Windows95 anymore.

In the beginning there was the command line.

So we realize the system in question is Win 95. System Clean, Ad-aware and Spybot should all work on this machine.

From the Sysclean readme

This tool has been tested under the following platforms:

Windows 95
Windows 98
Windows ME
Windows NT 4.0 Workstation and Server
Windows 2000 Professional and Server
Windows XP Home and Professional
