Antimalware Doctor


Recommended Posts

I recently managed to remove Antimalware Doctor via Windows' system restore. I also removed the malware that installed it via Malwarebytes. That actually went relatively well... but now, I have another problem...

Okay, so now that that rogue antimalware program is gone, EVERY TIME I open Firefox, new tabs open up, giving me bogus offers, saying that all they need is a credit card number. <_<

Well, System Restore can't fix it. I can no longer use the internet for anything due to a risk of it re-downloading the malware, as is ever-so-obvious. In fact, my normal computer is currently shut down, and I'm typing this from my parents' labtop. I was considering getting a new computer, but it's not worth the 200$, nor the time to find another Windows XP.

I run Intel, and Windows XP SP3(I use XP due to heightened performance. 2% better than Windows 7! And about 50% cheaper.).

I can not risk any form of download, and I have absolutely nothing to transfer files at the moment. Help needed desperatley...

Also, my computer runs PERFECT if I am not in any way connected to the internet. Am I doomed to run it like that now?

Hi and welcome to Malwarebytes.

Please update MBAM, run a Quick Scan, and post its log.

Next, download DDS by sUBs and save it to your Desktop.

Double-click on the DDS icon and let the scan run. When it has run two logs will be produced, please post only DDS.txt directly into your reply.

There's a problem with that. If I open my web browser at all on my regular computer, it will just re-download the malware, all the while probably cancelling the download. On top of that, I have nothing(as of current) that will let me transfer files...

I need to remove it manually, so... My brain is heading to the idea of using a Windows XP boot disk and restarting. It's not like I have government files on my computer that cannot risk infiltration or loss. =p

I'm just looking here for a better solution first.
