Hi, and thank you for this forum. I believe the CMD.exe is infected in addition to registries and other hidden malware. I had installed a Guild Wars set of three files I had downloaded from some website of ill-repute. They were named Guild Wars.exe, Patch.exe, and Crack.exe. The URL I found these files at were from http://www.freeserials.ws/?q=Guild Wars Keygen I wanted to see what they do. Then the Icon with the White X and Red Shield popped up stating that Spyware Infection Has Detected!, bad grammar so I was curious, clicked it and it started to scan and install something, and then I saw DOS mode and CMD.exe being altered. I get the various pop-ups when I went through the website here to initiate the Removal steps outlined on this forum. I use Ad-Aware SE Personal and Trend Micro 14 Anti-virus. But these did not remove the problem with some Spyware. I am glad I got this noticeable spyware because I found other unwanted programs using detection by the Hijackthis 2.0, Combofix, Spybotsd14, CCsetup138, and Smitfraudfix. I get popup ads from broadcaster.com, it's a wanna-be YouTube site. AVG Spyware is running while I post this. I'll attach the AVG Spyware Log when it is done in addition to any other additional information you request. Thanks.
