Ok, so I have a computer mysteriously and quite interestingly infected with the Spyware.Ispynow . The usual "Windows Security Center" Pop-up shows, and when you try to close it, IE7 comes up but immediately crashes itself or freezes the whole computer. I
tried running IE7 to download Malwarebytes to scan it, but no luck. The only site that worked was Google, and every search I had resulted in the usual behaviour of redirecting to go.google (and at one point some not so child friendly sites). The wireless won't pick up any connections, so I'm plugged in directly, and the Windows Firewall service is disabled. Also, AVG is being blocked from updating, though that probably doesn't matter too much.
The really wierd part is that after retrieving Malwarebytes from my trusty flash drive and downloading HijackThis through firefox portable, which by the way, seemed to work normal except that it crashed incredibly often, Malwarebytes would not install. I checked the process list and I saw at least three instances of mbam-setup.exe, I'm guessing from the three times I tried to run it. The one thing I was able to do was open the startup manager and disable some unfamiliar startup entries, which seemed to have surpressed the "Windows Security Center" Pop-up and allowed me to browse for the most part in IE7. Still, it seems to be disabling my firewall and blocking some of my connections.
I already have a Hijackthis log that I can post when necessary, and i could attach a list/screenshot of the startup values I disabled as well if that would help.
Thanks in advanced for the time, I really appreciate you guys
