Thread: Possible Virus?

  1. #1
    sometimes when i open up a new window of IE, it doesn thav ehte same toolbars up and soemtimes it doesnt even have the adress bar. also, the windows logo with the white square is larger than usual.

    has this happened to anyone else?

    i did a scan with ad-aware and it only found trackign cookies and wildtangent.
    I using the housecall online virus scanner now. before it even started scanning it said it found some malware thing. could that have been the cause?

    Could be a virus, but more likely to be stubborn spyware.
    Links to any legit spyware removal program

    For virus scanning, I wouldn't use an online scanner.
    nsane always has the latest NOD32 on-demand scanner, that's if you don't want to install a full anti-virus. The only ones I would ever recommend would be AVG (there's a free version that's great, but pro is just that much better), and NOD32, which you can check out the trial version.

    But you can always block stuff like this with the HOSTS file. I made my own Supertrick installer. haxor41789 was nice enough to host it.

    what does that do?

    man, i just got this virus again. it doesnt let you close iE windows and if you try to open task manager, you just hear oen of those error sounds, but with no error message. i used that online virus scanner again, but it didnt find anything. and ad-aware and spybot didnt find anything

    also, it doesnt let you click links in already existing IE windows, and if you open a new IE window, the page doesnt load.

    You running XP? If that&#39;s the case, you need to turn off system restore. The same goes for if you&#39;re runnning on (I&#39;ll gouge out my eyes if you say you have it) Windows ME....

    You might need HijackThis&#33; or CWShredder for those pain-in-the-ass spyware.

    McAfee AVERT Stinger may help. Even though I don&#39;t like McAfee, this tool is cool.
