  1. Hi, I got slammed yesterday with a mega-malware/virus. It put a bunch of stuff on my computer and hijacked all my browsers. I have been cleaning for a while but have several things still on the computer. There is a service ping.exe that is in the task manager - it seems to play audio advertisement. Kill it it comes back. I installed Malwarebytes and it is now constantly popping up that it blocked various malicious websites. I followed these steps: 1. Ran Adwcleaner a couple times. 2. Ran Malwarebyes 3 times - got to zero items 3. Ran HitmanPro 3 times
  2. Hello! Never tried the forum bit but here goes, I've read several posts of users having similar issues to what I'm seeing with my machine, as all of them were delighted with the results I'm highly inclined to seek your assistance. It seems whenever I plug my computer into its internet connection the CPU usage goes full on, upon opening the WTM to find the culprit I see that PING.EXE begins with a nominal percentage before (in seconds) exponentially rocketing up to 100% causing the machine to freeze absolutely. However, no sooner than the cable has been disconnected, all returns to a stable ope
  3. My computer has been constantly redirecting my google searches for the past month or so, and additionally, recently a "TCP/IP Ping Command" has popped up in my volume mixer, playing sounds of different commercials. This has been worrying me greatly, and I would greatly appreciate assistance with these, primarily the Ping.exe virus. It will not let me delete Ping.exe due to the TrustedInstaller having full rights over it. I have copy-pasted my DDS.txt here. .

  4. This virus deleted a vital part of microsoft security essentials before I even knew I had it. i noticed MSE was deactivated and trying to start it yielded the dialogue box "Couldn't start Security Essentials service The specified service does not exist as an installed service" I downloaded Malwarebytes and accepted the full version trial. Malwarebytes was able to locate the virus but couldn't totally remove it. It's under windows\installer\[random-letters here]\U I ended some processes at this point causing a reset of my computer Upon restarting my computer I get two error messages "Run DLL Th
  5. Hi, Recently a process called PING.exe has been running in the background and has been using a significant amount of processing power. Ending it with task manager only stops it for awhile, as the process starts itself again. In addition, when I open up Mozilla firefox, another tab will open with a webpage about some fishy looking news website or a weird facebook survery page. In all cases, the pages try to resist being closed with popup windows that say things like "Are you sure you want to leave this page." Any help, advice, or insight would be much appreciated. Thanks! I saw another topic si
  6. today i noticed windows7 professional os was laboring hard. ping.exe is coming in and out taking huge amount of resources from cpu. ran malware and trend micro business security with no avail. they both removed threats so i will post logs from both DDS log file is attached Your log file after most recent scan: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (PRO) www.malwarebytes.org Database version: v2012.05.17.04 Windows 7 x86 NTFS Internet Explorer 8.0.7600.16385 christian :: MAC-WIN7CD [administrator] Protection: Enabled 5/17/2012 8:24:28 PM mbam-log-2012-05-17 (20-24-28).txt Scan type: Quick sc
  7. So ComboFix tells me I have Rootkit.ZeroAccess, and further research tells me that this may not be good. In 15 years of working with computers professionally, this is the worst one I've seen, although part of that may be of my own doing. First off, I know I'm supposed to have logs from DDS. Wish it were that easy. DDS hangs both in normal (tested 10 mins) and safe mode (tested 30 mins). This is the same as ComboFix, which I tested up to an hour and a half in safe mode where it hangs right after alerting me to the Rootkit. (This symptom continues even after everything below.) As a result of
