    Hello , this last 2-3 days i have been having a problem...a serious problem with my computer...

    i cannot acess IE.
    i cannot acess MSN.
    i cannot upload some files at some hosting websites , not even in firefox.(includes youtube , mediafire etc....)


    Things I have done:
    Search for virus , - results: 0
    Unninstalled Msn and IE and then installed again , results: nothing worked.
    searched for all kinds of solutions in firefox : zip
    asked alot of help around , results: nada

    Problems:
    the IE and MSN and Uploading problem is all connected , because it all worked before this happened...

    IE problem : HTTP 400 BAD REQUEST.
    MSN: Says that they cant connect me probably because of the IE ...
    Uploads , gives random error or simply a ''failure''

    .. please help me i really need help...

    Are you getting random popup ads on you computer when your not surfing? If not, what about "Security Warnings" that look legit from Windows?

    More detail would be helpful too.

    Could be malware. Have you run any sort of anti-malware scanner?

    Also - are you perchance using proxies?

    if i were you i'd check the running processes and search for anything suspicious & scan with spyware doctor and hitman pro as well
    but i think your best bet is reinstall the OS in this case, especially if you are unable to find anything which causes the problem

    yea, of course
    you have to make a backup before formatting your HDD and reinstalling the OS, if you need those programs

    Sounds like you have a new malware that is not yet detected by your anti-virus. Download malwarebytes by clicking one of the following links:
    http://files6.majorgeeks.com/files/c7fdc5f5c63fbdc92af9e5df3721ed6b/spyware/mbam-setup-1.46.exe
    http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/malwarebytes/mbam-setup.exe
    After you do the installation, update it first and then run malwarebytes for full scan with the present settings.

    Afterwards also download hitman pro, and run that as well. Then I would also download spybot, updated it and run it.


    This guide about running malwarebytes is good as well: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-antivirus-vista-2010

    I would run malwarebytes in safe mode with networking enabled. You should still also run hitman pro aftwards though.

    Why don't you go back in time on your computer? System Restore to a previous point in time before you had these issues.

    backup: you'll need a pendrive/external HDD/DVD and simple copy the important datas from your comp to the pendrive, the installation files of the programs (maybe it's not necessary, you can download the latest versions from the net once you finished the install) along with the product keys/serials you use and it's also a good idea to save and export the bookmarks/passwords from different browsers

    install OS: it doesn't take more than an hour, if you know how to do it, it's not science-rocket:
    Code:
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/help/install-reinstall-uninstall
    you have to set your PC in BIOS to boot from the CD/DVD drive, put the Windows CD/DVD into the drive (you'll need the product key as well), restart your PC and follow the onscreen instructions (perform a total format on your HDD not just a quick format) and after you finished, set your PC back to boot from the HDD

    if you install XP it takes about 45 mins (depending on how big is your HDD=formatting time), if you install WIN7, it's more faster
    and do not install Vista, it's a piece of sh1t! :)

    You go into safemode by restarting your computer and keep pressing F8 on your keyboard until a menu to choose pops up. When you are in safemode use windows help to search information about system restore. You will be able to choose a previous date/time. So choose one before you had the problem. Yes your folders and files will be safe. Only your windows settings will be change to how it was on the date you choose.

    System restore should be in your accessories folder in the system tools section.

    Try making a new account in your Windows User Control and log on to that account to see if that fixes your IE problem. You can set one up to use your current installed programs, too. If it works then you know you had/have some sort of malware that isn't being detected. Keep in mind that using your programs again might infect that account, if those programs are infected or you run the original infected program.

    First of all, I think you have a serious virus/malware infection going on. Not to blame anyone, but by chance did you ever try to download one of these "nulled" Xrumer or LFE or any other software anywhere on the net and wondered it doesn't work? ;)

    I'm not kidding, this kind of downloads is the most common source of virus/malware infection these days. These exploits go that far that they move your entire installation into a virtual machine (while it's running!) and run it on a host system you actually never face! Imagine what "they" can do with your system once that happened... That's the blackest BlackHatDream you could ever dream. Now, back to topic :D

    Re-installing Windows or any other Operating System isn't rocket science at all, just as stated before.
    With the links provided previously in this thread, you should be able to handle it. If not, let me know which Operating System you're trying to install and I might give you a hand.

    Cheers,
    Steve

    EDIT: After all, I think this thread should be moved to the Lounge or something. This has nothing to do with BlackHat SEO ;)

    You should always be prepared to reinstall your base OS at a moment's notice, always have 2 hard drives and save all of your data to the 2nd hard drive (never save anything to your main c drive, like set your web browser to save downloads to the 2nd drive,save files there, etc), this way when re-installing all your data is still there... what I do is to run all of the applications that I don't trust, and also trials, on a virtual machine through virtual box (google it) this way i don't give a shit if it gets infected I just go back to the last snapshot when it was working fine, this is really the best way to keep things running smoothly.. you do need a good pc to do this, mine has 8gb memory so you want around this much, at least 4gb if youre doing this, but its worth it
