Strange Computer Problems...

Recommended Posts

So, I have an issue that hopefully someone can assist me with. This morning, I turned on one of my computers to find that my home page (google) would not load. I brought up the task manager to see what was running, and it came up rather strangely. None of the tabs were present, and you could only view the applications tab. On top of this, when I ran netstat (just because I was curious to see if there were any strange processes running), I found an ip address that I didn't recognize connecting to the computer. This ip address would pop up, sometimes change slightly, and then disappear/reappear. I assumed this is/was some sort of hacker or zombie computer trying to attack my system. Also, netstat showed this ip address trying to use a file called 0.log on my computer...which I deleted.

When I used malawarebytes to scan my computer, several infected registry values came up. Vundo, and a general trojan.

Extremely annoying. Now, while I'm not computer illiterate by any means, I think this might be a bit above my skill level as to what I've fixed before.

>_< Any help would be greatly appreciated.

(I looked at the topic on 'i'm infected' by exile 360, but I was hesistant to run any of the programs beside malawarebytes until I talked to someone.)
