  1. I've been running mbae for a long while now and about a month ago it started notifying me of what process it was protecting whenever I launched said process. "Google Chrome now protected" and such when I opened chrome. These notifications come in the form of a popup speech bubble from the system tray. This is all fine and dandy but today it out of the blue told me that it was protecting internet explorer. Now this surprised me since ive not used internet explorer for over a year and that was when I downloaded google chrome after a full os reinstall and format. I checked the taskmanager and found iexplore.exe as a process which I terminated and started googling my problem. A few minutes later it once again notifyed me of protecting another instance of iexplore.exe and this time I didnt terminated the process but instead kept on researching and scanning with mbam. A few seconds later I checked back into the taskmanager and found that the iexplore.exe process was gone. I then waited for mbam to finish scanning which it did with no results and now im here writing this. What should I do? Nothing on my computer has changed since yesterday and this is the first time ive seen this. The only odd thing is that the online game TERA on steam wouldnt launch today either but this was solved by simply verifying my game cache so I think that was just a coincidence. Ive had TERA installed since last friday and this was the first instance of the TERA bug. Ive attached my mbae logs like instructed and I will respond to this thread with any updates on the problem. Any advice greatly appreciated! Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit.rar
  2. I have noticed that my computer speed has declined recently and when I was prompted a program was using 20% of my RAM I looked into it. In my process' running in multiple instances is iexplore.exe. I looked around about it and found out it was a virus. I scanned with Malwarebytes but nothing was found. I saw here that you've helped a few others out so I came here. Attached below are the txt's from the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool as stated to use here https://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?/topic/9573-im-infected-what-do-i-do-now/ FRST.txt Addition.txt
  3. 1. dllhost.exe*32,iexplore.exe*32, saUI.exe*32, rundll32.exe and other processes are running multiple versions of themselves using up CPU and Physical Memory. 2. Internet sites are showing up in the Applications tab of Windows Task Manager which I did not open. The sites and Internet Explorer don't show up on my desktop but the sites are running because I can hear ads and audio from the sites through my speakers. "End Task" won't close them. 3. I tried to download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool from bleedingcomputer.com to get a scan for you but I get a popup that says "Your current security settings do not allow this to be downloaded." I've never had issues downloading things before. Malwarebytes quarantined a couple of files today but this didn't help any of the issues. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
  4. Hi, I'm really quite clueless, and I think that I may have been infected with iexplore.exe viruses. I've been trying to follow what people say in self-help articles, but I'm afraid of messing things up. What little I did try didn't seem to accomplish much either. Can someone help me please?
  5. My laptop is currently infected with a more advanced strain of the iexplore.exe virus. Symptoms include - multiple iexplore.exe and iexplore.exe*32 processes despite not using internet explorer - multiple Chrome.exe*32 processes - frequently running out of memory - computer is very slow - random windows noises playing periodically in the background i have been searching the internet for a solution or removal guide, but so far nothing has worked. in addition anti-malware software like Malwarebytes does not seem to be able to detect the virus. i am currently running windows 7 32bit if someone could help me i would be very grateful! - Jake
  6. I'm having issues with the iexplore.exe virus. There are usually 2-4 instances of iexplore.exe running in my task mngr processes. Sometimes, they close out/terminate only to reappear again in <30 minutes. Although I don't get redirection issues that much anymore (happened a few times in the past 2 days), I am very confident that this virus still remains on my computer. When I scanned my computer with MBAM yesterday, I was able to pick up a trojan and immediately deleted it; then restarted my computer. However, beginning today (5-8-13) instances of iexplore.exe kept popping up. I was hoping to tackle this problem on my own as I have done so for viruses in the past, but it seems as though a simple virus scan will not suffice as mbam (quick and full scans), MSE (quick and full scans), and SAS do not detect viruses. But again, I feel very confident that there is a virus/trojan. I would greatly appreciate someone walking me thru the thorough process of removing this virus. attach.txt dds.txt
  7. My windows 7 based laptop is experiencing significant issues tied to one or multiple viruses over the past two weeks. What started out as an isolated issue resulting in a blank screen (with/without cursor appearing) issue when booting up...then turned into Intermittent blue screens, iexplore.exe being replicated over and over in task manager...as well as malwarebytes detecting/quarantining trojan virus on startup. Help! I have attached dds.txt and attach.txt files for review...thanks in advance for assistance at your earliest opportunity. jr Attach_js.txt dds.txt
