  1. W32/NewMalware-LSU-based!Maximus is the virus that my anti virus program says it has found but it always fails to disinfect. I heard that my virus does not scan some folders and was wondering if this is why this thing wont get die. If anyone can help I would apreciate it a ton.

    Edit: The results of this are random popups whenever I use IE or firefox. It also mkes my internet run increadibly slowly. Hope that helps.

    • Make sure you have the LATEST version of HJT (currently v2.0.0.2) it can be downloaded from HERE
    • Run the HijackThis Installer and it will automatically place HJT in C:\Program Files\TrendMicro\HijackThis\HijackThis.exe. Please don't change the directory.
    • After installing, the program launches automatically, select Scan now and save a log
    • After the scan is complete please attach your log onto the forums using the paper clip icon above your reply.

    You have a vundo infection, so be sure to run the tool 3 in step 10.

    Also please use MBAM instead of SuperAntispyware in step 6

    Please follow these Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions and post back in this thread with the requested logs. There should be at least 3.

    1)MBAM log
    2)Combofix log
    3)Hijackthis log (Step 15)
