  1. I got hit by a hijack site, and it put some TR/DropperGen4.Trojan copies onto my system. I got rid of them with Avira. I scanned with Avira, and then MbaM, and everything seemes ok, but my system is acting ...."slow" and kinda wierd.... Here is my recent HJT log..... it looks OK to me, but I need a more learned opinion.... Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2 Scan saved at 6:18:47 PM, on 10/13/2010 Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600) MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.6000.17055) Boot mode: Normal Running processes: C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exe C:\
  2. I was attacked this morning by the falsealert.trojan virus. In the comments section you will see my accolades to MBAM as I kicked it's butt, and fixed my problem just like that..... Anyway, I had a new problem updating. Error 732 (12029,0). I did a search on the forum, and found this post. Sure enough, proxy server was checked in my IE LAN settings (I wonder if the virus did that). Anyway, I unchecked it, problem solved . Thank you so much for your advice......
  3. OK, this thing was the FakeAlert.Trojan thing. I hope there's a special place in HE** for the people who write these things......
  4. I watched the ball drop down while drinking Boone's Farm wine and beer. I went outside and shot off some bottle rockets I had left over from last year, and then went inside. The neighbors continued shooting off fireworks, but I was out of stuff to shoot off (except for my guns, but I didn't want the cops coming over). So I got on my computer to look for some clip art for a logo for my new web page. I ran "free clip art" in Google and then on about the 10th page all hell broke loose. A virus or some such thing took over my computer. It wouldn't let me do anything, and it kept telling me to acti

  6. My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary. She said, 'I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 150 in about 3 seconds.' I bought her a scale. And then the fight started... ------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- When I got home last night, my wife demanded that I take her someplace expensive... so, I took her to a gas station. And then the fight started... ------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- My wife and I were sitting at a table at my high school reunion, and I kept staring at a drunken lady swigging h
  7. Thanks-- I checked it with Avira, and everything's cool. I really appreciate your help.

  9. I wish I had an inkling of how to do what you guys do! MBAM is an awesome program, and your advice regarding other programs to complement it (ex Avira) has changed my whole computer security stance. Your wonderful assistance, besides being free, is the best part of this whole thing. You guys are dedicated to beating malware and viruses. I
  10. I restarted a couple of times, and the problem appears to be fully resolved.... everything's clean, both browsers working fine with no re-directs...... I hope I'm not being premature, but THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH! As soon as I can, I'm going to upgrade my Malwarebytes program, just so I can give you guys some money..... this program, and all of this wonderful assistance, is VALUABLE stuff
  11. Yes, I did a full scan with Avira (updated today) before I did the mbam scan. The avira scan said everything was fine (well, not in those words, but it detected nothing)
  12. I have done exactly as you said. Below are the scan results that I did AFTER the HJT fix was completed. Neither apparently show anything; but I would rather you decide if this is so...... I have not restarted my machine, as directed. Everything appears good again. I'm tempted to restart the machine, but I'll wait to hear from you.........

  13. Evidently, my problems are not fixed. I was in the process of running the scans you requested, and after restarting, the problems resurfaced (I think), because I can't go to my home page with IE. Anyway, here are the logs/scans you requested, in order: JavaRa 1.13 Removal Log. Report follows after line. ------------------------------------ The JavaRa removal process was started on Tue Jan 13 00:36:13 2009 Found and removed: C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0_02 Found and removed: SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{CAFEEFAC-0016-0000-0002-ABCDEFFEDCBA} Found and removed: SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{CAFEEFAC-0016
  14. My problems are FIXED! BOTH of my browsers are no longer redirected to psedo- "search"pages (spam pages) or any such thing, and BOTH browsers can now access the web pages that were blocked (my home page, and my local newspaper)! Those registry key things that you had me fix with Hijack this FIXED both problems! That's SOOOOOO cool! Maybe it's my imagination, but the system seems to run smoother, too. I REALLY appreciate you helping me with this. I'm updating my Java as recommended....... thank you so much!
  15. Ever since my problem started with certain web pages no longer be accessible with my IE7, I've had redirect problems pop up. I always thought this was at the result of my search, but I've got some kind of bug, because this affects me with both IE and Firefox, and sends me to the same page every time. It redirects me. Here is my Hijack this log: Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2 Scan saved at 4:55:31 PM, on 1/11/2009 Platform: Windows XP SP3 (WinNT 5.01.2600) MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.6000.16762) Boot mode: Normal Running processes: C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exe C:\WINDOWS\sys
  16. Hello, I suppose no replies means no one knows what to do about my problem (certain web sites that I used to access frequently using IE7 are now inaccessible). MBAM fixed my malware problem flawlessly (thanks!) but there's a lingering after-effect... I download firefox and I can access these pages just fine. I do want to fix my IE so I can use it as well; I hate the idea that some a#@h*&e has decided for me that I can't use IE to read the local paper anymore....... I can't do "repair " of my IE because I don't have the original disks. I checked my host file, and the pages in question are
  17. I initially put this post in the Hijack this log forum----- I didn't mean to do that-- I can't figure out how to delete it. Please delete it for me.... here it is again......... MBAM fixed me up great. Everything appears to be fine. One problem, though (as you recall I mentioned): Two pages that I access frequently (my home page and my local paper) no longer are accessible. I can access these pages using an anonymizer, and also by using Google translator (as you suggested), so the IP addresses are blocked somewhere. I took your advice posted earlier, but I was not able to accomplish anything
  18. I wrote initially with recently solved malware problems, but have another problem: namely that there are two specific web pages, comcast.net (my home page) and tallahassee.com (my local paper) that I cannot access. I was told to follow some instructions, and post the reports here. Here they are......(by the way, Happy New Year) Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.31 Database version: 1582 Windows 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 12/31/2008 5:16:11 PM mbam-log-2008-12-31 (17-16-11).txt Scan type: Full Scan (C:\|) Objects scanned: 92342 Time elapsed: 33 minute(s), 13 second(s) Memory Processes Infected: 0 Memo
  19. I recently got rid of (I think) some malware on my machine. As I was thrilled with my log which showed removal of some bad stuff (stuff the McAfee and Adaware missed, I might add), I thought I would go read my local paper (www.tallahassee.com). Well, I couldn't get onto it. So I thought I'd go to my regular homepage, and read the national news (www.comcast.net). Couldn't get on it, either. I can go to any other web page, though. Just not these two. Out of curiosity, I called to make sure these pages were up. Apparently, anyone else can access these pages. I'm pretty sure think this problem w
  20. I have another problem, that started about the same time I started trying to get rid of the original ones. This was before I downloaded Malware Bytes..... I cannot access my regular homepage (www.comcast.net) or my local newspaper (www.tallahassee.com) I have called both of these entitities, and I am told that their sites are up and running. Apparently I can go to any other site; browser appears to be fine, otherwise... Could malware have somehow blocked me from accessing these sites? I cannot get to them from my bookmarks, or if I type in the URL manually. The only thing I can think of is th
  21. A few days ago I somehow picked up a computer virus, or adware, or something. Every once in a while, a thing ( a Microsoft Office 2000 screen) would come on my screen where it said that "the application I was trying to use needed to access a disk"; I would hit cancel, and it would say it was installing something. I'd hit cancel again, and we'd go back and forth a few times with that, and then a web page would open up. Usually some kind of commercial thing. My McAfee Security suite did not detect it. I updated and scanned 10 times with it. My Adaware 2008 would not detect it. Neither would my
