Myzor virus, networm-i virus on my computer

  1. Hello there, this is my first time writing to you. I've been reading several posts over the last few days on how to get rid of the Myzor virus and the Networm-ivirus. I've spent approx 10 hours scanning, cleaning, etc trying to get rid of it. Can you please help me.

    This is what happens: when I try to get on the Internet my homepage gets hijacked to an "about:blank" site that redirects automatically me to "the safetyfiles". Once this happens tons of pop-ups occur, the main one saying:"Windows Interent Explorer:Warning! W32.Myzor.FK@yf is a virus.....". Another popup says" Security Warning:New variant of Spybot@MXt". I also get the popup balloon in my lower right hand side down the the taskbay saying,"Security Alert:Spyware found: Your computer is infected with the latest version of PSW.x-vir trojan...." Another balloon says,"Security Alert: Networm-i.virus@fp".

    This is all I can gather so far. I've tries several things after reading several posts. I've tried AVG Anti-Spyware, ATF Cleaner, Smitfraud (in safe mode) several times, bitdefender, and webroot. None of these seem to be working.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    I have moved your post to it`s own thread.

    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.

    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as Attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Also, let me know the results of the Panda Antirootkit scan.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    I think I'm going to reformat my hard drive, unfortunately. Do you have any tips or words of advice, because I know this is a very powerful task?

    You need to do the following.

    Diconnect from the net and don`t reconnect, until you have your firewall software installed.

    1 Restart your computer and go to setup usually by pressing the F2 or delete key.

    2 Once you get into setup look for the boot menu and make sure you set it to boot from cd first followed by your hard drive.

    3 Put the Windows xp disk into your cd drive.

    4 Now save your settings and exit setup.

    5 While your computer is booting you will see a message that says "press any key to boot from cd" press any key.

    6 When the welcome to setup screen appears press enter and then press F8 to accept the Microsoft licence agreement.

    7 You will be prompted to repair an installation press the escape key.

    8 Now select the partition that you want to reformat and press the D key to delete it you will be asked to confirm that you want to delete the partition.

    9 Now press C to create a brand new partition you will be asked what size you want the partition to be in mega bytes. If you just press enter then the partition will be the maximum size that you can have. This is perfectly ok if you don`t want to create multiple partitions.

    10 You will now be asked to format the partition select the ntfs file sytem and do a full format.

    11 Once the format is complete setup will continue.

    Your computer will restart during the remaining setup again you will be asked to press any key to boot from cd DO NOT PRESS ANYTHING and setup will continue. Once the setup is complete and you are back in Windows remove the Windows cd from your cd drive.

    Install your firewall software and reconnect to the net. Install whatever drivers you need, then run Windows updates.

    Finally, install whatever programmes/software you want.

    Regards Howard :)
