:flowers: Okay I cant belive what Im going through. First I get a black screen on my other PC which had been given to me by a church so I dont have the boot disk and they cant fine it. So there goes my files.

so then since I cant afford to buy one in the first place, I was fortunate to have been given another PC. OKay so I log in to the internet and it starts sticking and then the next thing you know Im being maneuvered to my desktop and aftwhich, an advertisement pops up for updating real player. After running a virus/spy removal program, it showed almost 87 various trojans, spyware and viruses. I only had the trial versions so I removed them all off them manually paying careful attention to each location...except for one --- Glacier I cant find it but its located in my files system32/.exe Ive donwloaded every known application and software on the net and its still there.

Does anyone have any ideas about it? The person who had the PC stated that they were having problems with it but I didnt know they were this extreme.

Is there a fix for this puppy? Or is this PC brokedown too? :thumbsup:

Hey.. I really appreciate the help you guys give in this forum.. you rock!!

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode.

ok.. I did everything you said plus a tad bit more. This is what happened:

I followed your instructions by scanning with superantispyware in safemode. Did the bit defender and also scan with trojan hunter, stinger 260, Windows-KB890830-V1.24.zip, ccleaner, atf cleaner, regvac, ad aware SE and xoffspySE. During these scans, the following trojans were present:

Win32.exe bundle.272
A bunch of other program files by View Point
PC Bloodhound and,

I kept scanning and removed lots of infections from my registry; rebooted scanned more, removed more until there was nothing left except Glacier which was like this


After 2 days I ran Stinger 260. Stinger spotted it in my files hidden deep in the common file folder. I had to click at least 5 folders to get to it .. It had the name of


I ran all of the softwares zooming in on just the files and found it . The program was actually

system32.exe which was found in the area where the security folder was

When I removed it.. Heres what happened next:

My PC started fluttering and it started a system shut-down on its own. I had no control over my PC. AFter rebooting, I was able to get back on the internet and everything. However, Glacier evidently took a lot of my Win32 files with it.

1. I have no audio
2. My Windows CE Application Manager module is missing
3. windows Installer was gone (I replaced that)
4. I cant download windows files... I get a WIN32 components missing
5. My browser is useless after about 15 minutes. I have to reboot and start again
6. The only way I can access My Computer is through Explorer.
7. And more little bitty stuff and it gets more and more irritating.

I'm unabel to access my command prompt .. I cant even access it through task manager...it as though Im clicking at space.

After careful research and sleuthing around... I find there is a program out called BOOM which was made to capture Yahoo IDs Cost: $300 Apparently, the trojan is undetectable by antiviruses, spyware and it can become a part of your system without you even knowing it and will record your keystrokes and send the info to you ftp server.. which is what you would need prior to purchasing this program.

I have installed many anti-yahoo sites, have come in contact with many people in various anti yahoo forums doing signatures and etc. Im sure I got it by email or replying to IMs regarding site problems and etc. Someone I knew gave that to me. The PC was clean. There was not nothing on it and the previous owner (my church) they did not have internet service at all and I only had the PC less than 24 hours when all this stuff happened. :flowers:

What is my next step? Please tell me I dont have to purchase another Windows xp sp2 software :trumpet:

Thanks for your time and stuff..I tried to do stuff myself without asking for help up to a point. But I can only go so far on my own not knowing certain things about computers. Its a good think I joine Bleepingcomputers because I didnt know where else to go :thumbsup:
