Vundo problem plus possible others

By kefitch

  1. My computer has been running very slow for a couple weeks and recently I started getting a lot of popups whenever I opened an internet browser. McAfee repeatedly told me it was blocking the same trojans which made me think that it wasn't solving the problem.

    I followed the 8 steps and here are the logs, I'm no longer getting the popups but I'm not sure if the problem is entirely fixed yet,

    any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hello kefitch

    The logfiles looks clean to Me, but you have viewpoint running -

    Viewpoint is considered foistware and is not needed on your computer.


    Download and unzip to own folder on Desktop - http://bellsouthpwp.net/p/r/prprogramsstudios/viewpointkiller.zip

    Run ViewpointKiller.exe

    Reboot.

    And tell why you are not sure if the problem is entirely fixed yet ?

    Thanks for the reply!

    I wasn't sure if the problem was fixed because my computer is still running much slower than it used to.

    Ok. Let´s see if combofix find some infections -

    Please download Combofix:
    http://subs.geekstogo.com/ComboFix.exe

    And save to the desktop.

    Close all other browser windows.

    Please connect all your external hard drive/flash drive before running Combofix, if you have any

    Double-click on the combofix icon found on your desktop.

    Please note, that once you start combofix you should not click anywhere on the combofix window as it can cause the program to stall. In fact, when combofix is running, do not touch your computer at all and just take a break as it may take a while for it to complete.

    Combofix will create a logfile and display it after your computer has rebooted. Usually located in c:\combofix.txt, please attach it to your next post
