Because a trojan or spyware is probably the culprit, please follow the steps below:
Download ALL of the tools below on a friend or family member's, CLEAN computer and copy them to a CD or flash drive, then transfer them to the problem machine.
First, please download and run the following tool to help allow the removal programs below to run. (courtesy of Grinler at BleepingComputer.com)
There are 4 different versions. If one of them won't run then try to run the other one.
Vista and Win7 users need to right click and choose Run as Admin
You only need to get one of them to run, not all of them.
IMMEDIATELY after running the "Rkill" tool above, run/install the Malwarebytes and SuperAntispyware installer and update files from the links below which you've also copied to a CD or flash drive, and transfered to the problem machine. Do NOT restart the computer after running Rkill.
Once downloaded and before transferring Malwarebytes and SuperAntispyware to the problem machine, rename the program installer "mbam-setup.exe" file to something else like "Gogetum.exe", then copy the installer file and the update file to a CD or flash drive.. Transfer the file to the problem machine, then install the "Gogetum.exe" file, then run the update to get the program current.. After that, run a full system scan and delete anything it finds.
Malwarebytes Installer Download Link (Clicking on the links below will immediately start the download dialogue window.)
Malwarebytes Manual Updater link
Next, install and run a full system scan with the SuperAntispyware program and the manual updater from the links below. As before, you may need to rename the installer file to get the program to install.:
SuperAntispyware Manual Updater
In a few situations, in order for the program to run, it was also necessary to rename the main "mbam.exe" file also after installing it.. It resides in the C:\Programs Files\Malwarebytes Antimalware folder....
Hope this helps.
Ok so i have a little problem. I think i got a virus from a torrent. I have AVG free and I will try to explain my problem as well as I can.
When the torrent finished, I unziped it and AVG told me there are some viruses in my users/administrator(aka Andu) folder.
Dont look at the file names. They change each time I restart computer.(Threat name doesnt change)
Ok so I clicked on 'Block' then 'Move to Vault'. It said :
Again, DON'T look at file name. It changed. Only one that counts is Threat name.
Ok. I clicked 'Restart Now'
It restarted then AVG showed me a screen saying that it was 'succsefully removed'. 5 minutes later, the first screenshot appeared again. As I said, now the name was changed. So I did the same thing. After restart, it happened again. This time the following thing was appearing on my screen from 3 to 3 minutes.
Also, near the icons on the left side of the screen, now it is one with this thing too. I know it has nothing to do with microsoft/windows but im afraid it is a keylogger or smth.
Ok so I went to virus and tried to delete it by hand.
These are the files that are causing trouble : http://img682.imageshack.us/img682/4217/vdvfs.png
They change their name and each time I delete them they appear back. I searched in registry. There is 1 thing, xigin.exe located in users\andu that i deleted but it comes back so regedit didnt help me.
I also tried with another AV, PREVX 3.0. This one found them but I cant delete them.
Screen : http://img85.imageshack.us/img85/3342/virus1.png
Once again, DON'T look at the names. They change.
I use Windows 7. It works perfectly. Please help. If you have any suggestion or you know another forum where i can post, say it here.
