I have lots of popups and when I click links on google I am redirected to bogus antivirus/anti spyware websites. Earlier today I had a worm.win32.netsky virus, witch took over my background picture, disabled task manager, kept making popups for me to download their anti spyware programs. I think I removed most of it using spyware doctor. I am still having popups from this NeXplore thing, and I am still redirected from google when I try clicking a link. When I tried using my Malwarebytes it didn't work. It can't locate mbam.exe. I tried re-installing it, at the last stage when it finishes installing and goes to open the program, a window pops up and this is what it says:

Unable to execute file:
C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe

CreateProcess failed; code 2.
The system cannot find the file specified.

If anyone could help, that would be great.



# Uninstall Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware using Add/Remove programs in the control panel.
# Restart your computer (very important).
# Download and run this utility. mbam-clean.exe
# It will ask to restart your computer (please allow it to).

Download a randomized renamed mbam.exe version from here. Place the renamed mbam.exe in the Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder on the infected PC and launch the renamed file.
Then malwarebytes should run. Update it and then do a Full Scan with it. When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
Reboot afterwards.

Post back with the MBA-M log.

K, I got it working.. here is the results.. I am not having any more pop-ups but I am still getting redirected via search engines.

Your MBA-M was not updated. The database is weeks out of date. Your database version shows 3646 and the current version is 3669. You need to update the program before each and every run, it has daily updates at the very least. Please update the program and run the scan again.
Reboot and then give me a HJT System Scan log.

K, I scanned with MBAM and it found 2 things.. one trojan something and the other.. I see loads of them all the time.. random letters .exe like it's weird... anyways, I had to restart my system for the removal to take effect so I don't have my MBAM log, here is the HJT log.

Yeah, sorry about that double post, didn't notice until now.
Please download ComboFix by sUBs from HERE or HERE
· You must download it to and run it from your Desktop
· Physically disconnect from the internet.
· Now STOP all your monitoring programs (Antivirus/Antispyware, Guards and Shields) as they could easily interfere with ComboFix.

· Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
· When finished, it will produce a log. Please save that log to post in your next reply along with a fresh HJT log
· Re-enable all the programs that were disabled during the running of ComboFix..

Do not mouse-click combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.

CF disconnects your machine from the internet. The connection is automatically restored before CF completes its run. If CF runs into difficulty and terminates prematurely, the connection can be manually restored by restarting your machine.

Run Combofix ONCE only

Post back here with the combofix log.

I can't put AVG off with taskmanager because I can't get it open because something is glitching it.. Should I still scan with AVG running?

Open AVG and turn it off from within the program itself. If you must, use msconfig and stop AVG9_TRAY from auto starting there and also go into Services there in msconfig and stop these two:AVG Free WatchDog
Symantec Core LC (this is an old remainder of a Norton Program, it must be disabled also
Also, Spybot TeaTimer is running, this interferes with fixes, turn it off and just leave it off. It is more trouble than it is worth:
Disable Spybot's TeaTimer

* Run Spybot-S&D in Advanced Mode
* If it is not already set to do this, go to the Mode menu
Advanced Mode
* On the left hand side, click on Tools
* Then click on the Resident icon in the list
* Uncheck
Resident TeaTimer
and OK any prompts.
After you have done ALL of the above then reboot the computer and try the combofix.

k, I went in msconfig and removed everything with avg and the symantec thing... When I tried running the ComboFix it said avg would interfere or something and then I clicked x and it kept going so I rebooted my computer. I tried uninstalling avg so I could use the combofix but I can't uninstall it from add/remove programs on cpanel... How can I stop AVG?

Did you reboot the computer after using msconfig? You have to do that also. All msconfig does is let you stop the auto booting of the program the NEXT time you reboot, it doesn't turn off the program that is all ready running.

To disable the Resident Shield, please:

* Open AVG User Interface.
* Double-click on the Resident Shield.
* Un-tick the option Resident Shield active.
* Save the changes.
To disable the Personal E-mail Scanner (if it is installed), please:

* Open AVG User Interface.
* In menu Tools select Advanced settings.
* Go to E-mail Scanner - Servers - POP3, and click on the POP3 server (usually AutoPOP3:10110).
* Un-tick the option Activate this server and use it for receiving e-mails.
* Repeat the same for SMTP server.

Then you have to reboot the computer.
After the reboot then check Task Manager to be sure none are running IF any are running then Highlight and click End Process.

I told you my task manager doesn't work. I rebooted the computer like 5 times... Earlier it said all the components were disabled but CF said it wasn't so I don't know.

What exactly happens when you try to uninstall AVG via Add/Remove?

Did you try uninstalling using Safe Mode?

I see you are offline however I must give this instruction:
Since you attempted to run Combofix and say you "x" ed out of it but it seemed to continue to run you really need to Uninstall Combofix and download a new copy of it just to be certain the program itself was not damaged.
To do this do the following:
* Click START then RUN
* Now type Combofix /u in the runbox and click OK. The space between the combofix and the /u, it must be there.
When shown the disclaimer, Select "2"

Then using the links above download a new copy of combofix and follow the steps given.

I did that and guess what? It ran combo fix, now I have a window open saying warning!!! omfg u got avg open and its freaking out at me again, I don't think I installed it, here is a detailed explanation of what happenned.

k, I clicked on combo fix, the warning window of avg pops up, I x it, then another one pops up again saying

antivirus: AVG Anti-Virus Free

The above real time scanner(s) are still active but ComboFix shall continue to run. Kindly note that this is at your own risk.

See... That window is open right now.. I don't think it is running yet even thought it says it "shall CONTINUE to run" at MY OWN RISK. Mmm.. I think my ComboFix works, I'll try going in safe mode and uninstalling AVG

Yes, I KNOW combofix will run when an anti-virus program is enabled, that is NOT the point, you do NOT want it to run while and antivirus program is running because the anti-virus program can interfere with any fixes it attempts.
Did you read my post concerning uninstalling combofix? Please do so and follow those instructions.
You DO NOT want AVG running when combofix is working, this is why you MUST either stop it or uninstall it.

PLEASE, do one thing at a time. Please read instructions and follow them EXACTLY.

I wasn't trying to teach you that combofix can run while AVG is up.. What I was trying to say was that AVG says it's disabled but ComboFix says AVG is running and I have to scan at my own risk, I just tried uninstalling avg in safe mode, no luck. I get an error every time.

FYI: I read ur post, I typed that in run, it opened up combo fix, if you read what I said.

"I did that and guess what? It ran combo fix."

I did what you told me to do and put it in the run box.. it opened up combofix.. I wasn't trying to run it.. Please read my post over again.. :\

What does the error say?

Just delete the combofix from the desktop and totally out of your recycle bin.

what does the error say?
Please don't run combofix, uninstall it as i have instructed twice now.

dont do caps at me i told u the thing runs the program it doesnt uninstall it

PLEASE go back and read my last 2 posts on page 2.

To remove AVG download and run this AVG Removal Tool.

To remove Combofix try this:
* Click START then RUN
* Now type Combofix/uninstall
