    less porn?

    Clean install, antivirus that doesn't fail(I use Avast), delete all cookies(and temp items) and fix your browser settings, less porn(again).

    I would personally try avast first, if it doesn't help, do a clean install.

    My check list for viruses (most of it is common sense, which a lot of ppl lack):

    -Install antivirus software and update it.

    -Scan and scan some more.

    -If it catches anything and cannot remove it, Google the name to find a specific fix. Do this even if it seems to have "deleted" the virus.

    -If it does not catch anything, install alternate software and repeat until you find something.

    -Back up your files in case things get nasty.

    -Use your antivirus to try and fix the problems, while also applying the specific fix. You can even boot into safemode if you need to.

    -Update your computer / defragment / use CCleaner and HijackThis

    -Add firewalls, spyware tools, secure your PC (close ports and backdoors).

    -Get a safe browsing tool such as WOT, or anything similar.

    -Quit downloading porn!

    sounds like you got a rootkit, run hitman pro 3.5, that should get rid of it, trial version works. Uninstall after its removed.

    yeah the anti virus/ adaware stuff that doesn't do anything and wants you to buy it isn't good, lmao. I know for old xp there was a good program to take stuff like that off and like a above you need to stop lookin at gay porn.

    Ad-aware is that SHIT!!! It handles gay porn like nobody's business!! haha!

    Actually the Ad-Aware fixed it.. Whatever it was it was smart it acted just like an anti virus popping up and said ur shits infected after i clicked exit another window popped up and looked as it was scanning my hard drive but it wasnt.. The thing i dont get is how it would redirect me to a diff site every time i clicked a link that had ad-aware in it. The link Kyle gave me worked and it got rid of it so thanks again.. and thanks for all the suggestions.

    do a scan with spybot search & destroy, malwarebytes, and hitman pro. What AV are you running? The free version of Avast5 has good heuristics, might look into it.
  17. Dec 30, 2006
    I also suggest you disconnect from the internet while running those scans. If they keep coming up, you can scan in safe mode and see if that'll help.

    I had this same exact sort of thing a few weeks ago.

    I first ran Malwarebytes, then after restarting, used ComboFix.

    ComboFix is fucking amazing, it's all a command line program too, so just run it and follow the instructions it gives.

    It took a while but my computer was completely fixed. I thought I'd have to reinstall, I couldn't even open programs before I ran ComboFix!

    I've seen this before. Just follow my advice. Get a program like AVG to scan and find the virus name. I can bet it's virtumondo or something similar... You will have to follow specific instructions to get rid of a virus like that. That's why you try and find out an alias for it.

    If I remember correctly virtumondo wrote itself in explorer.exe, so any attempt to remove it wouldn't matter because it was already in memory. What I did was I got the removal tool for it, booted into safe mode, started up the tool (and anything else you might need), killed explorer.exe (which kills your taskbar / desktop) to delete the virus when it wasn't running. I'm not saying you have this particular virus but it looks VERY similar. Probably an updated version of it.

    Good luck.
