So, after reading some other threads I have found that I am not alone with this "your computer has been infected with an unknown trojan" virus. The pop-ups started last night. I am a serious computer novice, but I would like to try and fix this on my own. Of course, my Norton will not detect anything and I don't know where to go from here. Please help.

I have been reading more. Should I download and run HJT and post the report here?

AJZ-

Thanks for the reply. I just got home and tried something that a coworker suggested. It seems to have worked-no more pop-ups, but I wonder if there is still something lurking around that will harm my computer. This is what I did:

I went to Control Panel, INternet Options, Advanced, and clicked on the Reset button. I rebooted and no more pop-ups. What do you think? Should I still do a HJT report and post?

Thanks
CTU

Here's a HJT report

Hi Cindy,

It looks like you do have either a trojan or malware on your system, I would fix the two keys below with HJT make sure all windows are closed but HJT. Here is a link if you would like additional information http://www.lavasoftsupport.com/lofiversion/index.php/t13521.html.

O2 - BHO: Player - {AAED19A0-D72D-4AD1-8F94-B53D36C835A7} - C:\WINDOWS\orgnavi.dll

O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {BA52B914-B692-46c4-B683-905236F6F655} - (no file)

If you want to post a fresh report after you fix the keys I will look at it.

Be careful what you fix within HJT......This would be my suggestion on cleaning your system:

Print out or copy this page to Notepad since you will CAN NOT have any of browsers open while you are fixing this and try to follow it as closely as possible taking it STEP by STEP.

Update your Mcshield Antivirus program.


Download Spybot Search and Destroy install it and UPDATE the program.

http://www.safer-networking.org/en/mirrors/index.html


Download VundoFix.exe to your desktop. Ignore the AntiVirus warnings and download it anyway because you need to run it.... Wait on installation and running.

http://www.atribune.org/ccount/click.php?id=4

Download CleanUp and install it. Wait on installation and running.

http://www.stevengould.org/downloads/cleanup/CleanUp452.exe


Download following program CWSHREDDER. Wait on installation and running
http://www.trendmicro.com/ftp/products/online-tools/cwshredder.exe


Download About:Buster and save it to your desktop. When it has finished downloading, unzip the folder to your desktop as well. You should now be left with an aboutbuster folder on your desktop.Wait on installation and running.

http://www.malwarebytes.org/AboutBuster.zip


I would also recommentd that you download CCleaner. It is a great little program that I use every time I close my browser to get rid of temporary files. I usually just run the cleaner part every time I'm done with the browser.During the install there will be check marks for checking for updates which you should do.....Dont install the toolbars unless you want them so you can uncheck these boxes.
It is a very safe program and it is free.(CCleaner Quick Setup: Go to > Options > Advanced > Uncheck "Only delete files in Windows Temp folders older than 48 hours" as this will help in cleaning malware that may be hiding in your temp files etc)

http://www.ccleaner.com/

_______________________________________________________________________

Now make sure no OS files are hidden.
To do this:
For XP go to My Computer->Tools->Folder Options->View tab:
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading:
* select Show hidden files and folders.
For Vista go to the Control Panel->Appearance and Personalization
Under the Folder Options, click Show Hidden files and folders.
* Uncheck Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm and then click OK.
You may change the above options back after your log is clean.


Turn off system restore.

Steps to turn off System Restore for XP
1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2. In the System Properties dialog box, click the System Restore tab.
3. Click to select the Turn off System Restore check box. Or, click to select the Turn off System Restore on all drives check box.
4. Click OK.
5. When you receive the following message, click Yes to confirm that you want to turn off System Restore:
You have chosen to turn off System Restore. If you continue, all existing restore points will be deleted, and you will not be able to track or undo changes to your computer.
After a few moments, the System Properties dialog box closes.

Steps to turn off System Restore for Vista:
1. Control Panel -> System Maintenance -> Back Up and Restore Center
2. On the right column, click on "create a restore point or change settings" (this requires administrator's password if set)
3. Uncheck all drives.
4. Click OK.
5. When you receive the following message, click Yes to confirm that you want to turn off System Restore:
You have chosen to turn off System Restore. If you continue, all existing restore points will be deleted, and you will not be able to track or undo changes to your computer.
After a few moments, the System Properties dialog box closes.

Do all steps below in safe mode except for at the end when you generate a new HiJackThis log

Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following:

1) Restart your computer

2) After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8 (Repeatedly).

3) Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear

4) Use the up arrow key to highlight Safe Mode and press Enter.

Please run HijackThis and click "Scan". Place checks next to the following entries if still present in the code and close all browser and other windows except for HijackThis, and click "Fix Checked".

Run your Antivirus and do a full scan.....Remember this is all in safe mode.

Run Spybot Search and Destroy and do a full scan remember this is all in safe mode.

Open Cleanup by double-clicking the icon on your desktop (or from the Start > All Programs menu). Set the program up as follows:

*Press the Temporary Files Tab and check.

-Scan drives for files matching

Click OK

Press the CleanUp button to start the program. Reboot/logoff when prompted.

Note: CleanUp deletes EVERYTHING out of your temp/temporary folders, it does not make backups. If you have any documents or programs that are saved in any Temporary Folders, please make a backup or MOVE THEM out of the Temp folder before running CleanUp
If you have a 64 bit Operating System do NOT run Cleanup and let me know as we will use another utility.

Install and run CWSHREDDER

Close all browser windows, open cwshredder.exe then click "Fix" and let it run.

Double-click on the AbouBuster.exe icon.

Click Begin scan. Close when completed.

Download and run this file http://www.spywareinfo.com/downloads/tools...ngfilesetup.exe

_____________________________________________________________

Double-click VundoFix.exe to run it(Do this a few times until nothing shows up)

Then install CCleaner but note it installs the Yahoo Toolbar as an option which IS check marked by default during the installation. IF you do NOT want it, REMOVE the checkmark when provided with the option.

Before first use, select Options > Advanced and UNCHECK 'Only delete files in Windows Temp folder older than 48 hours'

Then select the items you wish to clean up.

In the Windows Tab:

* Clean all entries in the "Internet Explorer" section except Cookies.

Click the "Run Cleaner" button.

A pop-up box will appear advising this process will permanently delete files from your system.

Cindy, after following zelkea's instructions the log you give is clean.
If you wish you could remove MyWay as it is basically an adware search bar. This is the best way to do that:
=I see that you have MyWay Search Assistant. You can get rid of it if you wish...
First see if it is listed in Add/Remove pgms list - remove it if able, then..
Go start > run, paste:
MsiExec.exe /X {78d944d7-a97b-4004-ab0a-b5ad06839940} -and Enter. If it is found click yes at the prompt.
Next delete the MyWay files/folder in Program Files [use myway as a search string...].
