How do I make sure I got all viruses off of my computer? 

by on March 21, 2013

Q: Hey guys,

I have recently downloaded a program that has clearly had malware attached. At first it appeared to be adware as it would hijack whichever browser I was using and force it to Mixi DJ. I managed to clear this up with antivirus programs.
However it seems that I’ve got something going on almost consistently in the background. I’ve checked the task manager and nothing seems to stick out as odd. It’s really annoying in that if I try to type something (for exacple example a URL or into the start bar) after a few seconds I get bumped out of the window, like I’d clicked outside, thus interrupting my typing.
The antivirus’ I’ve used are Trend Titanium (which I had previously bought), Malwarebytes, Spy Hunter 4 and SuperAntiSpy. Trend and malwarebytes didn’t find any, and I know how these other less legitimate antiviruses tend to tell you they find more than they do to make you buy the upgraded version. I’m really worried because I don’t know what the virus is, but I assume its phishing so I won’t type any passwords. I’m sending this off my laptop.

Please help, I’m minutes away from just wiping all my drives and starting again

How come I am unable to perform administrator functions after installing Babylon Toolbar? 

by on December 1, 2012

Q: Ever since allowing Babylon Toolbasr to be installed I am no longer able to perform Administrator functions despite being logged on as the administrator. Spybot Search and destroy detects Babylon toolbar as well as Widgi Toolbar and Uniblue.DriverScanner as potential malware yet I cannot remove “since you.are not an administrator” Trying to download Advance Systemscare is also unsuccessful as I no longer have Administrator rights.
Note this request is sent from another laptop as I am unable to access even Google Any attempt to connect brings up a window asking to allow Coupon Companion.exe from Awesome Apps to be run.
How do I get rid of these?

 
 

How come I am unable to remove the tumri virus from my computer? 

by on November 11, 2012

Q: Hi! (Running Windows XP, desktop)
I have a virus (tumri.net). Every time I open my email, the tumri page pops up. It is blank, just the name and a long address. Also, I possibly have a trojan (IconDrop). Downloaded a free version of ExterminateIt. It found the trojan and loads of tracking cookies (not tumri) but ExterminateIt only finds things for free — doesn’t fix anything. I have run Spybot six times; it is not finding anything. Ran Malwarebytes but it never finds anything. Found removal instructions (to delete files) but I don’t know/can’t find these files :( <$PROGRAMFILES>\\IconDrop\\(various extensions here) These instructions were from the Spybot website, dated 2008.

If you could make some suggestions, it would be MUCH appreciated!
