I think I have viruses and spyware and I need assistence to irradiate them.

Symptoms:
Constant windows popping up saying: "Windows has detected an internet attack attempt... Run full system scan... Click here to download spyware remover(regardless if I click on the "OK" or the close window button it still redirects me to a bogus protection site).

A large red window that covers my entire desktop that says "YOUR PRIVACY IS IN DANGER" and links to bogus site called "ultimate defender" or something. IF I go ahead and download their free scan, my antivirus detects a trick and deleats it.

Three internet shortcuts appear on my desktop and favorites called Spyware&Malware Protection, Error Cleaner and Privacy Protector that are disguised as applications and all redirect to this onlinesecurityworld fake site. When I delete them they always come back later.

My Norton antivirus is constanty finding new virus' and AVG is constantly finding spyware, so they are attacking me from the inside and everytime I access the internet, they get all their virus freinds and my antivirus slows the computer down because its finding new problems and scanning them.

Also the @#%*ing virus wont let me go into task manager. When I press ctrl + alt + del
or if i try to access task manager through the filename It says " task manager has been disabled by your administrator" yet I am the administrator and I am also the only account.

Furthermore there is a flashing red button in the notification area in the bottom right corner of the screen next to the system clock. It's slightly annoying:(
-----------------------------------------
I have tryed many methods to get rid of all the malware and viruses to no avail.
I ran my antivirus full scan (Norton) and spyware remover (AVG) which are fully updated.
I ran add/remove programs to find and uninstall unknown programs.
I used hijack this to search for processes but they all seemed legit. I attached my log file to this thread.
I've tried ignoring them. Clicking on the alert windows seemed to encourage them more so I reserved space in the corner of my screen for the little *******s but they still come and they add up till there's dozens of them and I scream violently, followed by slinking back into defeat because screaming wont help me.
--------------------------------------------------------
I think I first got the viruses whilst downloading a huge CODEC package for my media players and I installed one of these so called "codecs" but it was a malicious program that was disguised and now I can't detect it. right now its July 9th 1:56 PM

You should print out these instructions, or copy them to a NotePad file for reading while in Safe Mode, because you will not be able to connect to the Internet to read from this site.

Please download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri)
Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.

Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press "Enter".
  • Choose your usual account.
Once in Safe Mode, open the SmitfraudFix folder again and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #2 - Clean by typing 2 and press "Enter" to delete infected files.

You will be prompted: "Registry cleaning - Do you want to clean the registry?"; answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter" in order to remove the Desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection.

The tool will now check if wininet.dll is infected. You may be prompted to replace the infected file (if found); answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter".

The tool may need to restart your computer to finish the cleaning process; if it doesn't, please restart it into Normal Windows.

A text file will appear onscreen, with results from the cleaning process; please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply along with a new hijack log.

The report can also be found at the root of the system drive, usually at C:\rapport.txt

Warning: running option #2 on a non infected computer will remove your Desktop background.
==============

Download Superantispyware (SAS) free home version

http://www.superantispyware.com/superantispywarefreevspro.html

Install it and double-click the icon on your desktop to run it.
· It will ask if you want to update the program definitions, click Yes.
· Under Configuration and Preferences, click the Preferences button.
· Click the Scanning Control tab.
· Under Scanner Options make sure the following are checked:
o Close browsers before scanning
o Scan for tracking cookies
o Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
o Please leave the others unchecked.
o Click the Close button to leave the control center screen.
· On the main screen, under Scan for Harmful Software click Scan your computer.
· On the left check C:\Fixed Drive.
· On the right, under Complete Scan, choose Perform Complete Scan.
· Click Next to start the scan. Please be patient while it scans your computer.
· After the scan is complete a summary box will appear. Click OK.
· Make sure everything in the white box has a check next to it, then click Next.
· It will quarantine what it found and if it asks if you want to reboot, click Yes.
· To retrieve the removal information for me please do the following:
o After reboot, double-click the SUPERAntispyware icon on your desktop.
o Click Preferences. Click the Statistics/Logs tab.
o Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
o It will open in your default text editor (such as Notepad/Wordpad).
o Please highlight everything in the notepad, then right-click and choose copy.
· Click close and close again to exit the program.
· Please paste that information here for me with a new HijackThis log.

This will take some time!!!!!!!!
