I didn't realize that it was the format of the site that made AO what it is. I always thought it was the members. What a dumshite I am.

But first, you may want to research the file in question and make sure that it really isn't something important. Just because something is not running in the system tray does not mean a critical...

I wonder what would happen if I did a search for java code port scanner? Hmm..maybe I should rephrase that. I know what happens when I do it, I wonder what would happen if you do it. :)

I just ran into that same issue with an Actiontech modem/router... Qwest uses the modem for authentication, so it is extremely difficult to do port forwarding, or disbable NAT. I was told bt Qwest...

VX2 (abetterInternet) is a secondary infection to the nail infection, ie, they usually go hand in hand. That fix will remove the nail.exe infection, but you then need to tackle the VX2 infection....

This is the canned fix we have been using for awhile now:
Download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite here:
Install it, and update the definitions to the...

Too bad you went for the reformat.. it's actually a relatively simple registry fix. I hate it when that happens.

The bleepingcomputer link will be your best bet. Grinler put together a good guide. Antivirus Gold also goes by smitfraud....

No tool can remove a file if it is in use (in general). Did you ever consider running the tool in safe mode? Most of the time that will work.
No, you didn't delete the spyware.. you deleted the...
Just a couple of questions, and I am in no way saying you saw what you say you saw, I am just trying to clarify. First, are you sure that malware was being called from the system restore folder in...

Ok, you got me. Understanding teen sex and drug addiction are indeed pointless. I'm sure all the sociologists, scientists, and psychologists who have made careers out of studying that sort of thing...

Really? Do you write your own viruses and spyware too, or do you just slap some protection software on there. The argument that one must learn how to do something to prevent it is just regurgitated...

I agree that there is a problem with classification. My definitions are simple. If it causes pop-ups, or in some way targets advertising to your browsing habits, then it is adware. If it sends any...

How about emptying your temp folders?
Boot into safe mode:
Go to Start>Run> Type in cmd then type in the following:
del C:\documents and settings\sunshine\local settings\temp\*.*

To add to meeeeeeeee's prognosis/opinion:
The biggest problem with automated scans is that they do not look at context. Take for example the following: (go ahead, you can plug them into the...

If you would have allowed it to fix your homepage, it indeed would have set it to MSN, because that is the default setting under advanced options. You can specify whatever home page you wish it to be...

Those are LOP infections (99%) sure. Googling for them won't do any good because LOP uses usually three random words in it's filenames (sometimes two), and the folder containing them will have two or...

The newest variant of VX2 will also add items identical to what you are describing, as well as thrash your recycle bin, and cause tons of pop-ups...
The only solution for this variant is to...

I can hardly believe with all this good advice that nobody mentioned the most powerful, most overlooked clean-up program available...
It's called Add/Remove programs...guaranteed to remove 80%...

Because there is no such thing as secure code (and if there is, I can't think of an example). As long as I can get a dissassembled listing, I can modify it in any way I see fit. The longer the code,...

This is going to leave a bad taste in my mouth (defending Microsoft :p ).. but here goes.
People bitch and gripe about how insecure Microsoft is, when 90% of the time, they are the ones that went...

just to satisfy my curiosity, where do they claim that they can remove this most recent variant?? :)

As far as I understand, it hooks into the winlogon.(exactly how, I don't know) And it protects itself by watching the registry, so if you use something like the killbox, or the delete on reboot...

Sure, but stand waaaaaay back when you do :p
Just an additional note, this thing has many root-kit charachteristics (hint...try finding the guard.temp file)...
