    I was unable to scan using the ESET Online Scan because I do not have internet access and could not save to my usb drive.


    My computer is running slow. It seems that I can open some programs now. It shows that I am connected to the internet, but IE will not open from the desktop or start menu. I no longer see the fake antivirus program anywhere. I was not able to locate svchost.exe to determine if it is running at 100%.


    Let me know if there is something else I can try. Thanks.

    I was able to run the complete internet repair and can now open Internet Explorer but I cannot go to any websites. Also, the menu bar does not appear and right clicking does not work to see if it is checked or not. Still running slow but seemed to be a little faster than last time I logged on. Sorry for the slow responses-had a cazy week.

    I don't know if this will change anything or not, but I tried my firefox browser and it works fine. My Internet Explorer still is not working. It opens but when I type an address in there is no response. It doesn't even act like it is trying to load the page and there is no menu bar as I mentioned previously.

    Please list all the antivirus/security software you have...

    • On the Cleaner tab, click on Run Cleaner on the bottom-right to run the program.
    • Important: Make sure that ALL browser windows are closed before selecting Run Cleaner, or it will ask if you want the program to close them for you (when you do this, all unsaved data may be lost in the browser).

    Caution: Only use the Registry feature if you are very familiar with the registry.
    Always back up your registry before making any changes. Exit CCleaner after it has completed it's process.

    I ran the cleaner and there was no change in the condition of IE.

    It is working now. It runs a little slow but so does my computer as a whole now. Is there something I can do to speed it up? Also, since things are working now does this mean that the virus is gone or do I still have work to do to remove it?

    There is a RUNDLL error message that shows upon start-up. It reads "Error loading C:\Documents and Settings\Owner.WADE\Application Data\vcmlup.dll The specified module could not be found." When I open IE, a message appears stating that my last session was closed unexpectedly. Would I like to restore my last session or go to my home page. This occurs even if IE is closed completely when I log off. As of now my computer seems to be running faster-at least as fast as before the virus. Sometimes it will run fine for a while then slow down after I am logged in for several minutes. I will let you know if that happens this time. I thought I knew how to check svchst.exe, but didn't find anything that showed me how it was running. I went to task manager under the processes tab. Is this the right place to look, if so what am I looking for, or where should I go to find this? This is all I have noticed that is current.
