Hello all... I've been using some of the help from other topics here and decided to go ahead and join the forums. This is primarily because i'm worried that my computer may still be infected with some form of virus, spyware, malware or something else causing my computer to act up. I have some knowledge of spyware and viruses, but I downloaded a file off of the net that I believe gave me the virus (because I opened it and it said it was corrupted and then my computer acted up from then on) At the time, I didn't have any antivirus software or spyware removal software on my computer.. When my computer started acting up, I downloaded AVG Free Edition anti-Virus and Spybot - Search and Destroy because I had experience with each.. When I ran AVG it found over 500 viruses, Mostly Trojans and I removed them immediately.. Spybot also found a bunch of spyware, including the malicious Smitfraud C. Toolbar888 ... I used the smitfraudfix after finding it at this forum and going through the steps in safe mode.. Spybot kept finding it anyway, but upon updating Spybot, it no longer registered. My computer runs just fine but I still get IE popups even in firefox with advertisements, usually they say "Page Cannot be Displayed" but it's still a major worrisome annoyance.. I was just wondering if anybody might be able to help me dig deeper to get rid of all of my issues.. Is there any way to do so? If so, please help! Any and all help is greatly appreciated.. Thanks! :thumbsup:

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. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Thanks for the immediate reply. I am currently scanning my computer with the said software.
How will I absolutely know for sure if all the malware is removed? I know sometimes infected objects just wont register..

If you are the least bit concerned or have any reason to think you might still have malware, please post a Hijack This log. NOT in this forum, but in the Hijack This Forum.

I am not on the Hijack This Team.
Be patient. Don't bump your log. They will notify you by email (if you allowed that) or you can check back.
