    I want to be able to block a pc from accessing a bad website. Its an annoying virus scaner that installs malware on my sisters computer. (she has two13-15 year old boys). Who refuse to stay away from the porn sites. I am sick of cleaning her computer of this thing, (it seems to change every time, but appears to be the same malware). The history shows, a Vscan7 and the link WARNING THIS IS LINK TO A VIRUS ====> <moderator removed> <======= WARNING THIS IS LINK TO A VIRUS She has gotten this thing on her computer 4 times now. She cant lock them off of the computer, And they are boys, who will be boys is what she says..

    Personally its getting harder and harder to remove this thing I fear one day I wont be able to save her personal data. I have been collecting the information on this VSCAN7 every time. Until the Antivirus protection steps it up and adds this thing to the updates, I have no choice but to keep helping her, (hey its money)..

    Is there an easy way to add this to the list of blocked sites, The link keeps changeing every time.

    WARNING THE FOLLOWING LINKS LEAD TO A VIRUS,
    <moderator removed>

    WARNING THE ABOVE LINKS LEAD TO A VIRUS, Thats a pain to get rid of.

    For those of you who are wondering what happens, ( I have tested this on my XP computer,)
    You go to the link and it tells you that a virus has been found and starts scanning your PC. If it completes the scan you would have the virus. If you close out of the window it appears that you are not infected.
    I notice that all the links have a stream1 in them, is there a way to block that stream1?

    She is supposed to be bringing the computer back to me again, (not sure when as I have to go out of town for a few days. But apparently She cant run programs, nor can she download anything. She can surf the internet, but gets a popup that wants her to pay for the removal of all these viruses she supposedly has.

    So I am just looking for a way to block these links, I am sure next time it will be different but can assume based on the pattern that it will at least have a "Stream1" in it.

    I am not looking for a way to get it off the computer, I got that under control for the time being.. ( I know whats supposed to be in the registry by heart.)..

    Any information on blocking this thing or getting the Avast and Norton to add it to their list of bad things on the internet would be most helpfull. Oh this thing slips past a purchased version of Norton. and Norton will NOT remove it once its taken hold.

    Thanks in advance for your time and input.

    Don't be so stupid as to post live links to malware. You should know better than that

    if this computer is being reinfected then it wasn't cleaned the first time properly

    I will almost guarantee it has a rootkit that you have missed using standard tools

    Moved to malware cleaning for help


    Download to Desktop: DDS by sUBs from one of these locations:

    http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/dds.com
    http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/dds.scr
    http://www.forospyware.com/sUBs/dds

    double click DDS.scr to run

    When complete, DDS.txt will open.

    Click Yes for Optional Scan.
    Save both reports to your desktop.
    DDS.txt
    Attach.txt

    Attach the contents of both logs back here.

    download gmer rootkit detector from http://gmer.net

    unzip it & double click the gmer.exe file

    It will do a quick scan automatically, when that finishes select the rootkit tab & press scan. When it finishes press copy & post back the log it makes

    if they won't run then use this foirst & run teh other tols immediately afterwards

    Please download and run the following tool to help allow other programs to run. (courtesy of BleepingComputer.com)
    There are 4 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one.
    Vista and Win7 users need to right click and choose Run as Admin
    You only need to get one of them to run, not all of them.

    Sorry about the live links,, No its no rookit, As I even reformatted the HD. And they still got infected again. The computer is clean as a whistle. I deal with registry edits all day long. So I know how to remove malware spyware, and viruses. The anti virus they use is current and up to date. I want to know if there is a way to block the stream1 in the IE options. And if so how. When I get the computer back I will do what you asked me. both before and after I remove the malware.. I assure you that I get every last little bit from the reg.

    Thanks again, and sorry about the live links.. (in my defence I did warn people, and told them what to do if they did click one on accident).
