Virus: Privacy protector, Spyware & malware protection, error cleaner

By Ninjakitteh
Apr 24, 2008
  1. Well. About 2 days ago, this all started, my computer has been exhibiting these problems:

    Details of the problems:

    - URL icons on Desktop named: Error Cleaner, Privacy Protector, Spyware and
    Malware Protection

    - SystemFixError
    - change of Desktop background to a red picture written:
    Your Privacy is in Danger!
    Dowload Privacy Protection Software Now (box)

    - Windows message boxes keep poping up with texts like:
    Windows has detected an Internet attack attempt...
    Somebody's trying to infect you PC with spyware
    Click here to download spyware remover for total protection
    Danger, your computer is
    infected, you can loose all your data; to solve the problem
    click the yes button

    Can someone please help, it is really quite annoying. And Neither ZoneAlarm, Avira, nor Spybot will help.

    Here is my Hijackthis logfile.

    I am currently doing a Malwarebytes' Anti-malware scan, and getting combofix. As mentioned in the previous thread.

    I've attached my Combofix log

    Im having the same problem

    I Beleive it's related to an Activex download. I did some research...Did your task manager become unusable?..that was one of the side effects. That problem is easily fixable.
