    I recently had a personal credit card that I used for some online purchases, and everything went fine for about a week until someone kept sending my money to something called chinapay.com. I'm positive that ive never been to that site ever! so I closed that card and moved on. Now yesterday I bought a Visa Giftcard, which I can use to purchase things online,because I didnt want to go through the hassle of getting another credit card. And here we go again... i checked the balance left and i was robbed 50 bucks of my $58.06 i had leftover!?!...

    Can anyone explain what the heck is going on? what do you reccommend i should do? Im thinking about restarting my computer completly to clean everything, but heres the wierd thing.. i completly scanned my computer with this Windows Microsoft essentials(i think this is what its called) and it said my computer is protected. PLEASE help BHW, and replies and suggestions would be grateful. Please note that im only 18....

    You may have a keylogger program on your computer that you downloaded without knowing. Many of them will not show up on virus scans, but you can find them with a keylogger finder software. Just google it.

    Try downloading AVG and Spybot and scan everything. If they still don't find it, you might need to reinstall windows. That or make sure it's not somebody you know swiping your card.

    System restore will only temporarily make it go away. Most viruses hide in the system restore, thats why it's best to turn off your system restore before running anti-virus software

    I would scan with AVG free first. If that doesn't work, try malwarebytes. You can get a download of both for free if you just do a google search.

    Good luck OP!

    IMO Malwarebytes is the best. Also combofix is very good, but you would need to follow directions closely before you run that one

    Well you may have ordered something online and the database that holds your credit card information may have been hacked into, or you may have been keylogged, check out Thor Anti Keylogger if you believe you've been keylogged, it'll stop your computer from being keylogging in the future

    the most secure way to do any kind of cc transaction is to do it on a linux based operating system. I dont do this, but i should.

    The best place to tackle the infections is bleepingcomputer(dot)com these guys are the best on the net trust me. Some of the tools they will recommend are: Combofix ( only get from there website ) depending on the logs they may then recommend a malwarebytes scan however I tackle infections all day at work and combofix has alerted me about rootkit infections so I then run a great tool from kaspersky called TDSSKiller, this gets rid of any rootkits. As I said then a malwarebytes scan is in order depending on the logs. Run a full scan and remove all infections. Depending on the scan results I may then run superantispyware or spybotsearch and destroy ( also has a good host file immunize application ). Depending on the results from these this may be enough. As a user above said I would turn off system restore, then re-activate it to remove any restore files. If the system is clean now I would give it a good clean with ccleaner and install the virus software you are going to use, avoid pirated software mate, there are plenty of good free tools out there like Comodo Internet Security ( full version for free ), AVG Free, Avast Free, Avira Free, Malwarebytes ( free version is only run on demand ), Super Anti Spyware...

    If the system is to badly infected and you dont want to go through the hours of endless scanning and repairing system files a complete format and reinstall is an option, make sure you backup your docs, files n pics first though ;)

    My client the attorney called because her recently divorced client had reason to believe her ex-husband knew things about her life (online purchases and whatnot) that could only be known if he had some kind of spyware installed on her computer.

    I found this installed:

    http://www.gomcgruff.com/

    This shit records mouse clicks, keystrokes, URL's. Not sure yet (still researching) but I think it records screenshots too. Sends all the data to a personal website via command-line email. (No window pops-up, etc...)

    Was not found by 2 rootkit detection softwares, and two top-shelf anti-virus softwares.

    MSE is a piece of shit. If your software is cracked, you are compromised. Also, the sites you are shopping on could be infected. Even the site you are buying the credit card from, lol.

    That McGruff software is FOR REAL. "Monitor your children" my ass, that shit is horrifically effective. If you only wanted to "monitor your children", you could have very obviously-installed software that lets you know that it's there, what it's doing, and why.

    That McGruff "safety" thing is a big crock of shit. They are distributing top-shelf malware to "the masses" by putting a nice, safe "for the children" label on it. And the get the association with McGruff so it seems all nice and wholesome too. What a crock of shit. Ex-husband has a history of domestic violence, and McGruff is telling the violent sociopath everything his ex-wife does.

    Someone should shoot that fucking dog in the head. Put THAT on "America's Most Wanted". Or maybe we should just wait until someone winds up murdered, and "McGruff" was complicit in the crime.

    Haven't read the above so not sure if it's been mentioned but your best bet is to do a clean install of your OS.

    Cancel you card

    Then and have them reissue.

    I would go to the malwarebytes forum and sign up and have them look at your comp for free. Just post in the malware removal section and they will check all the logs and help you. My computer was hit hard by some crazy shit and they helped me.
