  3. Hello, I have three different versions of the Microsoft.WindowsMobile.Forms.dll files as found in three different versions of Windows Mobile SDK being detected today. These files have scanned many times before and their digitial signature still seems to be intact. I am guessing (hoping) these are false-positives. Files and log attached. TIA Microsoft.WindowsMobile.Forms.zip
  4. A full scan found this: Files Detected: 1 C:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-nslookup_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7601.17514_none_29a6795f7d1218c6\nslookup.exe (Trojan.FakeMS) -> No action taken. I did some google searches and though there was confusing info out there, my feeling is it was likely a False Positive, so I took no action. I did a full scan within 12 hours and nothing was found.

C:\OEM\Preload\Autorun\DRV\Synaptics Touchpad\WinWDF\x86\dpinst.exe (Trojan.FakeMS) -> No action taken. Advice and guidance is appreciated.
  6. I noticed my computer was slower than usual, then I started getting redirected to unknown web sites. That's when I knew there was a problem. I tried updating my McAfee anti-virus, and got an error message (The ordinal 1112 could not be located in the dynamic link library WSOCK32.DLL). I then ran anti-malwarebytes and it found a Trojan.FakeMS and deleted it, subsequent scans have turned up nothing, but I am still being redirected on Internet Explorer. My Java was out of date, I have since updated it. I am on a different computer. Thank you in advance for any help you may offer. I copied an
  7. So i decided to run malwarebytes because i havent and was really surprised by the results, the items were quarantined and deleted and i reset my computer and ran the test again and found nothing. I'm kind of lost here. I changed all my passwords of any importance but what else should I do? This looks like i'm really screwed. Here's the log.

  8. Hello, I'm seeking expert assistance with removal of the following malware on a Windows 7 machine. Trojan.FakeAlert Trojan.FakeMS PUM.Hijack.StartMenu (two registry entries) I initially observed a rapid series of cascading dialogs stating "Unable to Load Attrib.exe" ." I immediately cut power to the machine. On normal reboot I see a similar series of cascading dialogs stating "Disk Errors Found," then the machine restarts on its own. In safe mode most of my program icons were not visible and many folders were empty. I managed to run a full scan with mbam which found the 4 items as listed above
