    Hello everyone!
    My computer is haunted. I went to sleep, woke up, and had a bunch of things downloaded and installed on my computer. It has randomly done this twice already. Scince then, the popups are rediculous..please help! Thanks!
    :(

    (Oh, I should mention that I did a scan at housecall yesterday and it picked up Malware.worm-bagle.AG....and Troj Dyfuca.m
    I think I cleaned it though. Ill probably do another scan later.

    Go to Add/Remove programs and uninstall Web Rebates.

    Restart your computer.

    Also a new version of Hijack This has been released so get rid of the old one and Click here to download the new one, come back here and post the log from it.

    I see you are running Hijack This from a temp folder now. This is a bad idea because it cannot create and restore backups from there. You need to create a new folder in My Documents and name it Hijack This. Move the hijackthis.exe from the temp folder to the Hijack This folder you created. That way it can create and restore backups if needed. HJT will store the backups in the same location that it is run from.

    After moving it, Run Hijack This again and put a check by these. Close ALL windows except HijackThis and click "Fix checked"

    Restart to safe mode.

    How to start your computer in safe mode

    Because XP will not always show you hidden files and folders by default, Go to Start > Search and under "More advanced search options".
    Make sure there is a check by "Search System Folders" and "Search hidden files and folders" and "Search system subfolders"

    Next click on My Computer. Go to Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and "Hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"
    Click "Apply" then "OK"

    Now find and delete these files:

    C:\WINDOWS\System32\dp-him.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\msjint40.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\blabkend.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\bs5fnet.exe

    Delete these folders:

    C:\Program Files\Internet Optimizer
    C:\Program Files\Web_Rebates
    C:\Program Files\AutoUpdate
    C:\Program Files\Web Offer

    Also in safe mode navigate to the C:\Windows\Temp folder. Open the Temp folder and go to Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

    Go to Start > Run and type %temp% in the Run box. The Temp folder will open. Click Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

    Finally go to Control Panel > Internet Options. On the General tab under "Temporary Internet Files" Click "Delete Files". Put a check by "Delete Offline Content" and click OK. Click on the Programs tab then click the "Reset Web Settings" button. Click Apply then OK.


    Empty the Recycle Bin



    IMPORTANT!: I highly recommend that you go to Windows update and install all "Critical Updates and Service Packs" ASAP!. This will patch numerous security holes in IE and Windows. Many baddies get on your machine by taking advantage of these vulnerabilities. As your machine stands now it is wide open to attack from all sorts of nasties. You need to get these updates IMMEDITELY!

    Note: At this time I cannot and do not recommend that you install Service Pack 2. See here for more info:
