My computer has been severely hacked. Well 2 laptops actually. And it looks like my router also. Problems noted here: 1. Email accounts routinely hacked even after changing passwords and using keypass in the securist way. Suspected keyloggin occuring somewhere in the stream. 2. Something causing my typing to be highlighted and changed into other words and characters, not randomly but as in remote access type of thing. Suspected rootkit worm virus (I'm only above novice in this stuff). 3. Internet modifications occuring where webpages are rendered with intelligent inaccuracies, suspected DNS redirection and spoofing. If not virus worm etc. …

Hi, thanks in advance to whoever can help me out here. I guess the issues with my computer are currently. 1. ping.exe using up a large chunk of the CPU, very erratic but sometimes going near 100% 2. When I open Firefox or Internet Explorer, another tab or window automatically opens for internetpayday.co, and when I try to close that i just get more pop-ups. Also if I do a Google search and then click on a result I get redirected to some other search site or more pop-ups (9newstoday.net is another one). 3. When I try to connect to …

Hi, Yesterday my computer became infected with the malware "XP Antivirus 2012". Among the usual malware activities, it also disabled my internet access. I cleaned it up to the best of my knowledge, and it seems that my computer is now clean, but I can't access my internet anymore! Whenever I try to connect it tells me that either my wirelss radio is off, or my wifi is disabled in the bios. Not sure about the second option, but my radio button is definitely on, my wifi drivers are installed, and when i checked the wirelss device it is turned …

I'm requesting assistance. We are running WinXP, SP3. We appear to have what Stinger found in two files as the Fakealert!fakealert-REP virus (it then deleted those two files). The obvious symptom, for the last couple days, is this: We were running McAfee Antivirus Plus, and currently something *makes it freeze* when we try to start it. It is rendered inoperable. We have to end it manually with Task Manager. I downloaded and am running Avira as an antivirus while McAfee is not working. When we ran GMER Rootkit Scanner per your procedure, our error message was: "WARNING!!! GMER has found …

Hi all, I think I've got a rootkit infection. What I can see on my pc is that Ads windows are started by Internet Explorer and Firefox. Moreover there are programs that do not start and I must retry more times to start them. It happens with firefox, Internet explorer, some tools I use for my job and even with Explorer at startup. Usually the process starts (I can see it using task manager, takes some memory and the freezes). I have then to kill it manually and try to restart. After some tries I succeed to start the program. …

My problem started with video and audio all of a sudden being very laggy even thou I had CPU capcity to spare. Then soon after that the CPU started showing 100% usage most of the time. Often even when the system was idle. Looking in process explorer …

A couple months ago i came home to my computer and discovered hundreds of ad popups in mozilla firefox. I tried to close them but my computer started to heat up pretty bad and then it just shut down. Everyime I tried to boot it up over the next few days it would crash half way through the boot, so I found my knoppix disc and got linux up on my computer. I ran antivirus from knoppix and it deleted a bunch of stuff and then I was able to boot up in windows. I ran AVG in windows and …

Hi, A couple of weeks ago I had a bad virus on my computer (Anti-Vir 2010 suite or something like that). I ran all the scans out there, and thought i had removed it. But then, my websites and google searches kept getting redirected to other websites. That was the only indication that there was still an infection on my computer. Avast, AVG, Ad-aware, MBAM were all super clean, no infections found. So I recently also downloaded Avira, AntiSuperSpyware, and Spy-Bot search and destroy, and they all found a lot of infections and removed them. But the problem still persists. …

Ok, Not sure if you require specs, but a few main ones are; Dell XPS M1530 Windows Vista 32-bit This problem started a few days ago, i can honestly say i don't have a clue how it started. I lent my laptop too my brother one day... day later suddenly BOOM, 100 problems launched in my face. The problem i'm having is that when ever i open up the Internet i get 2 pop ups that pop up twice (opening 2 seperate internet windows) See attachments. The problem has now gotten far worse which i think is because of this. …

Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr got together for a rare live performance, and according to [URL="http://www.scmagazineus.com/Paul-McCartneys-website-hacked-to-distribute-malware/article/130330/"]reports[/URL] it would seem the bad guys thought that a spot of media friendly Beatle-mania presented [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry3824.html"]the ideal time to target[/URL] McCartney's website. Security specialists ScanSafe told me that its 24/7 Web security scanners first detected and began blocking the attack on Saturday 5th April at precisely 12:36pm GMT. The attack using that most advanced and sophisticated of crimeware toolkits, known as LuckySploit.
