Disk to Delete Everything?
« on: January 27, 2010, 03:22:17 AM »
Out of no where. I keep getting messages that pop up stating that my computer is infected, danger, attention, etc... then it tells you to download or continue unprotected. Uniblue does make a AntiSpyware for computers called Spy Eraser. However as this one appears to be legite, its comprimising my computer. After searching for the file I found it not as a program on the computer, but as a file in System32. Every two minutes those messages come up. I can not exit the program or disable it. It appears as if its a legitimate program, an icon on the bar next to the clock and one implanted on the desk top. However I ran all my spyware programs, anti-virus' programs and id failed to detect it. So I instaled MalwareBytes and it found it, and removed it. I ran it twice and everything else twice. Three hours later while the computer was siting, the message popped up. The icon reappeared on the desktop. The message continues every two minutes. Each message is similar but a little different from the rest. However it never changes its motive. I ran MalwareBytes again, it detected the infected files. So I did some research and found that I should use a program called RegCure to eliminate the rest of the files that were not being removed under the registry. It found 1242 infected files, and fixed them. However, I still find myself in the same boat. However I was told that I may not need to re-install the Windows, XP. Any suggestions before I move ahead on the reinstallation.

Hey Jojoking

 Just got over the same thing on my desktop.

I had to do compaq recovery to get rid of it on the screen and then regcure to get the other files out.

Good luck

Jojoking what I have noticed is that all you guys that are advertising iphone unlock seem to be having problems with your computer.  It is possible that iphone unlock could be the culprit that is causing your problems.

I have read that the firewall that comes with the microsoft operating systems do not do the job very well.  A free version of the Zone Alarm firewall would protect you much better.  You'd have to disable the microsoft firewall if you use the Zone Alarm firewall. 

Although we do not have the capability in this forum to be the go to place for online security problems I can recommend two different online security forums that you can go to, the Gladiator Security Forum or Broadband Reports.  I have used both in the past and they both help fix my problems.  I'm sure either one would help fix your problem so you do not have to re-install Windows XP.

I hope that helps.  Good luck.
