    Close all apps and do a system restore.

    Yep, the system restore ought to do it. Also, Kaspersky has a free online scan that is about as good as you can get.....takes forever, but good.

    Check any torrent site for nod32 / kaspersky.

    Also download SUPERAntiSpyware from download.com and run it, as well as spybot.

    You could also use a free antivirus, such as Avast! or AVG

    Use Kaspersky and Ad-Aware to remove it, if its not possible use system restore. Also virustotal.com has a online scan service.

    System restore only will not necessarily get rid of all viruses or adware. Your best bet is to also reformat your hard drive then restore your system. This will make sure that all intruders are smashed.

    if you are using xp, you can make a repair install. it only writes over your windows catalog.
    all the rest will remain untouched.you need windows cd for this and this cd must contain the same version you have installed (home, pro, oem).
    so you boot from the the cd, it loads a bunch of stuff, then it asks if you want to repair or make a new installation. you must choose new installation !! Not repair- this will fuck up your system.
    then it asks few more questions and you will come to the screen where it ask you to choose an action (type letter). now you should choose "r" letter and your repair starts.
    this will fix your comp most likely. it takes about half an hour or so.
    if you are afraid, not haven't done something like this before, let me tell you this: nothing bad will happen as long as you haven't agreed to format your hd. you can quit anytime.

    now what ever way you will fix your problem, do yourself a favor and dont use administrator account for your daily activities. you only need this account (powewrful user rights) to install and remove stuff. that's why there is a "run as" command.
    this simple advice will stop most of the viruses, badware etc.

    if this is helpful for you or to someone else, hit the thx button!

    DONT WASTE TIME WITH SOFTWARE!

    this has happened so many time i cant remember, you waste time scanning and they jsut come back

    backup anything important to a blank cd

    then do a complete system restore(restore to factory default settings)

    trust me its happend to me all the time time it pisses me off, what do they gain on playing crap through your speakers?

    word of warning- restore might fuck your machine up so bad you have to reinstall everything and you will lose everything. the same might happen if you try to install anti virus programs.
    i have had couple of such cases. virus writers are very smart kids, they know what you are going to do next. :)

    yeah system restore is good for small problems. but if you get a real nasty virus, unless you know how to manually remove the viruses registry keys and the a virus itself in safe mode, then you're better off not using it. with the restart that you'll have to do, you could be replicating the virus faster. thats how it was with backdoor.graybird. every time i restarted i had more and more instances of the virus running. and even if i was able to kill them all, when i would kill the last one either another would start running or my computer would crash.

    I think your best bet and the safest is to perform clean install.

    do not do a system restore, that will do nothing for today's adware. Either startup in safe mode then run your virus/adware scanner or if you are using firefox yet IE pages are poping up, then in the IE network settings you could set a proxy with an ip of 0.0.0.0,the last option would be if nothing else works, try hijackthis as well.

    MoneyMafia,


    It's always a VERY good idea to have an image that you can ghost so that these little things don't interupt the day to day business. No matter how badly I might get infected, I can have my shit back in perfect order in about an hour.

    Look into symantec ghost. I use 11.0 but any version will do. You'll need a little storage space to put your image on but it's well worth it to get your PC set up right with a clean install, add the things that absolutely must be there for you and then use ghost to make that image. You can then clone your primary drive any time you want with a quickness.

    I reload mine about every three months.
