Hi, everyone. I have a serious Virtumonde infection complicated by some interference with my security programs, and found this site when threshing around for some way to deal with the infection. No, I'm not asking for help here! Just saying how glad I am there's a helpful community I can turn to. I've been using computers since the Tandy Radio Shack Model I, but I'm getting left behind. I hope you good folks will help me catch up!

See you in the forums...

Thanks for the tip, Phawgg. My first stop will be the security forms. HiJackThis looks as if it will be the tool to use, but there are a couple of other odd things going on in my computer that may not be Virtumonde related, so I'll ask questions about that, and maybe use your tip to follow up members who seem to be good at babying newbies through this stuff.

I see you're a moderator although you only joined last July. Fast track!

Roger

Roger,
I'm not quite elderly at 51,
but for the present and recent past I've
had time to spend online. Semi-retired
and I enjoy that aspect of the aging process.

Your virtumonde problem likely doesn't stand alone
as what we call malware on your PC.

Best follow this tip. How to post a hijack this log report
