Stuck in the middle of Iraq with trojan problems

By Syty

  1. Two days ago, everything was running fine. Then the programs and folders started closing on there own or end up "Not Responding". Finally the computer became so slow that it was impossible to work on. To open a folder would take several minutes.

    I was able to boot to SafeMode and run AVG and a few other things to get some of my problem cleared up and I can again boot normally and somewhat work. I still get the occasional "Not Responding" and Windows Media Player and My Computer always end up that way. They are both unusable. Since the only thing I have to do in this country while not working is watch movies....This is a big problem. I still manage to get to files and folders via putting the file path in IE.

    I found many things on scans. Some go away permantly and some come back. Some of the more painful ones were.... Virtumonde, Winzzc32.dll, tuvvutq.dll, ddabx.dll, trojan.dialer.qn and downloader.loadadv.

    I am in need of serious help here. I have limited resources and horrible internet speeds.

    i might be wrong but you shouldn't go to website that you shouldn't be going, those are virus/spy wares haven.

    Its nice to hear soldiers from Iraq, but i wanna suggest to you that if you're off duty, you should go and visit Iraq family and children to give them comfort, bring a translator and hear their story in the green zone area. That was the whole purpose you went into Iraq in the first place right? to help those people?
