    lately ive been having trouble with my laptop while browsing. my internet is very slow only on my laptop and my laptop is very slow too. turns out i got a lot of trojan in my computer(running kaspersky right now)

    Im pretty sure someone shared a link of this software. i installed it and found it useless so i Uninstalled it.

    HTML:
    http://www.mail-xtream.com/main#
    until recently i found this on my task manager:

    [​IMG]

    I have already Uninstalled this software but still it is on my task manager and whenever i delete this process instead of stopping it multiplies and my antivirus goes nuts.

    [​IMG]

    now i think im just gonna have to reformat my laptop. Now im scared that all of my accounts are compromised :( paypal and all my browsing passwords accounts

    this is a warning to everyone here im sure some of you have downloaded it too. i never download softwares from bhw without a VT scan. But this one someone posted the download link is in the website so it does not require him to provide a VT scan. in short i got tricked!

    be careful everyone hope this does not happen to you

    update: found the thread:

    thanks to rockyonfire

    Restarted the computer now Kaspersky is disabled,it wont start no matter what i would do,

    Reformatting now and changing all passwords later

    Download the free Avira AV.

    If it doesn't work, try grabbing yourself a copy of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. You're probably going to have to pirate it if you're not willing to pay.

    It'll help, without having to reformat.

    Best of luck,

    Thats why i'd rather spend extra to get a legit copy .

    Guy's Wiz always warns people to be cautious of whats in there aswell as many other members.

    Just buy the real thing unless its from a reputable source !

    I would try a system restore before formatting. I use HP computers because they have this feature readily available.

    Call me old school but no matter what I write ALL my logins down on paper in my passwords notebook.

    Ya never know.

    Download Avast! Anti-virus, download Malwarebytes free edition to a temp folder.

    click start, in the run box type in msconfig, hit enter, click the startup tab and then click disable all. Reboot into Safe Mode with networking...

    Install Avast, In Avast schedule a boot time scan... close it.

    Install malwarebytes... run malwarebytes let it finish scanning and clean everything.

    Reboot - Avast will start scanning... quarantine all or delete all... after your back in windows you might want to shut down give it 2 minutes or so, reboot into safe mode with no networking and rescan...

    You might also want to install Comodo firewall with anti-virus, it's free, it plays nice with Avast, and the firewall is pretty good...

    Code:
    http://personalfirewall.comodo.com/free-download.html
    PS: the free version of malwarebytes will clean it... i wouldn't download pirated versions of security software but that's just me... You might also want to click start and type into the box
    sfc /scannow
    this will replace all your system files that where changed... be warned though it might screw up some legit programs too... but it will replace all your system files with legit versions off your re-install disk or HD copy of the OS.

    Like the others said Malwarebytes should address this. Try booting in Safe Mode before removing. If not get a copy of Hirens Boot Disk and boot your computer off it and backup your files. By booting with the DVD you have no risk of spreading the trojan if you should feel the need to reformat.

    Try Hitman Pro. It is fully functional for 14 days. Then after the
    trial period has expired, it can still be used to detect malware, etc,
    but it won't fix any problems after the 14 day trial is over.

    Side Note: We do not approve of members sharing apps. etc. in
    areas other than the Downloads section. You should be very
    suspicious if you see something being shared in other areas , and
    I encourage you to report it. Often people will share in other
    sections as a way of bypassing the download section rules.

    I have now deleted the thread in question and have moved this
    thread to the Blackhat Lounge.

    Reformat is the only sure-fire way. I could care less about someones software to remove any virus. After you reformat, stop being like this :baby09: and google virtual machines. It is a fools game to download any software shared anywhere, including here, and thinking you can just install it on your main usage pc.

    Let this be a lesson to you & simply learn it.
