I got a brand new computer About 4 months old About a month ago it started acting up On random Instances. At first i thought nothing of it Then it happened again and again And sometimes it gets Worse where i cant dontrol anything. I dont know if im infected by something or if its because of Xp or if its because of Internet explorer. So i dont know if this is a right spot for it but il give it a shot anyways.

I downloaded a File From Www.Badgehelp.com that alot of people said had Viruses and Malware/Spyware in it That is the only thing i can think of that might of caused this Problem. Ive ran A virus scanner and Spybot s&d and Both come up with nothing. Im about to my wits end with this problem and i need some type of assurence that I can fix it ..So any help would be Greatly Appreciated

Posted Image to BC. In order to further rule out malware isues, please run online test from Microsoft(IE required). Secondly you might want to try Firefox to see whether this has anything to do with IE.

Please post back the results.

I Googled the site you downloaded from. The words "free" and "Cheat" appear in the links. Didn't go to the site. Those words were enough to alert to stay away!
You are infected with malware and possibly a corrupt download. Suggest you remove all that you downloaded from that site.
Follow the Directions below.
Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
http://www.superantispyware.com/

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

I found this on Google

-----Here is your possible answer---
The Oscar.txt file is created during the Installation of (BADGEHELP) tools.
"Tools such as "Solo.exe".
Which is a Program to cheat on games @ pogo.com ...

Do you have BadgeHelp trainer programs?
Do you even play on Pogo.com?
Do you have the File named "Solo.exe"?
Do you have a folder named, "BadgeHelp"
Under "Program Files"...?

Have you ever gone to the website...
http://www.pogocheats.net
And downloaded the Solitare Cheat Prog?
"Solo.exe"

These questions are essential to answer and i hope you check back so we can rule this out as being a virus on our delicate systems.
This is a very rare and good question. Please confirm.

If you contain BADGEHELP or SOLO.exe
Or Oscar.txt. Delete Anything to do with POGO and above names.
And delete your Java 1_4_2_08 version, Java Web Start application)and dont use pogo.com.
Were probably being hacked when using Cheating "Aides"..

Let me know if this is the cause.
So I am aware if I am correct.

P.S. My BadgeHelp folder had same filedate and time as Oscar.txt
My BadgeHelp folder contained. "Solo.exe"

Solo.exe CODE says @ bottom.
(NUL) www.BadgeHelp.com (NUL)
(NUL) Joshua Was Here (NUL)



:flowers: Hope this helps ya. :thumbsup:

Bit= nothing found Wndows scan = nothing found. I did run ad aware last night and got rid of a trojan downloader and also a MAlware file So far my computer hasnt done it since. My Avg antivirus has found nothing So i dont think its a virus. It usually only happens when i run my computer for a few days straight with no shut down and i multi tab browse.

1)Can you give us some computer specifications?Videocard and RAM Mo/Bo etc etc.. This looks like a problem with your video card.

2) Do you regulary clean up your temp files etc?

3) What version is your Java

Super Antispyware is an excellent product. If AdAware found a trojan, you need to run Super Antispyware. Run it in Safe Mode. You need to get rid of the malware first. Then if there are other issues they will be easier to deal with.

you should install mcafee siteadvisor it gives you a heads up about the sites you go to and when you search google it will put a red yellow or green icon next to safesites or sites that have had problems with viruses
