Detected Spyware! System 384. In the “Address” bar it shows C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\secure32.html
This is on a Windows 2000 system and I am using Internet Explorer. If I go under Tools and Internet Options and look at the home page setting it says:
I can change the home page here and go on the Internet just fine. I can close out of the Internet and come back in just fine. But, if I do a restart or shutdown the same thing happens again.
I did follow the path and in the C: Drive there is a “blue letter e” Icon labeled “secure32.html”. If I click on it once, it will display and show me the exact blue screen that I am getting. So I am thinking this is getting put back in my C: Drive each time I turn on the computer. I have deleted that icon out of here, but every time I restart or shut down and come back on to go on the Internet, the same thing happens.
This computer is used on a network. If I log in with my own username and password I do get the blue screen with the 384 error. If I log in as the Admin username and password, I do not have any trouble. (not sure if you need this info or not) This works the same if I am just hooked up to a DSL modem with no IP’s numbers under TCP/IP or if I have the IP numbers set up under TCP/IP.
I do have Adaware SE Personal on the laptop and have updated it and then ran the program from the SAFE mode. I did not have a current virus program on the computer, but have since loaded AVG Anti-Spyware and also ran it in the SAFE mode.
Could someone please reply to me and tell me step by step how to get rid of this screen.
MOVED to a more appropriate forum. ~acklan~
