I am running Windows ME- I have Lavasoft Ad-Aware and spybot installed. I have a business e-mail account because I work at home. On monday I received an e-mail re: Bad E-mail! It says Clam AV: Encrypted.zip contains worm bagle.Gen-zippwd, since then my computer has been running extremely slow with alot of error messages like: exployer has caused an error in KERNEL.32DLL. and another error message when I tried to restart Internet exployer has caused an error SHELL32.DLL. Also, when try to restart my computer it just gets a blue screen and hangs so I have to shut down with the master switch. Than when I try to launch a program I receive this error message error loading C:\progra"1\wildta~1\apps\cda\cdaeng~1.DLL.( this message I have been getting since the tech guy at the office tried to clean up my computer, now you know why I came to you guys) I ran ad-aware and found 61 critical items that I tried to delete, first it quarintined them sucessfully then tried to delete from the system the window that comes up says deleted then you are supposed to click finish, well the windows stays up and you can never finish the deletion . I also tried to run spy-bot and after it finds problems it just stops responding. I am not very much of a computer wiz probably a computer fizz actually and I was just wondering if someone can first of all sort out what I am saying and then send HELP! :D

probably can be fixed here.
i would suggest a hijackthis log - lets see the extent of the problems


HIJACK THIS:

Download and copy hijackthis to its own folder , it makes backups so keeping them separate and available can be useful.

Note the Spyware tools websites are very often under attack and so I have provided more than 1 location to download from:

http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/
http://209.133.47.200/~merijn/downloads.html
http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/
http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html
http://aumha.org/downloads/hijackthis.exe
http://www.sherrylynn.us/privacypolicy (this has an older version 1.97 - if you can not get to any of the above sites)

Close all open windows and open Hijack This. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”.
Click on “Save Log” and then save it to NotePad.
Click on “Edit” – “Select all” – “copy” and then “paste” into the thread.
DO NOT FIX ANYTHING wait advice from one of the many security experts in this forum.

I currently do not have the skill/competence to advise and poor advice can be far more damaging to your PC with this software, and so I will be unable to add any advice on the log and so will nolonger be replying to your post with regards to the HJT issue, so please have patience and wait for one of the secruity experts to provide further detailed advice

i will however, be notified when you post the log

ETAF- thank you for your help. I went to the first site you listed and clicked on hijackthis. I tried to copy it but couldn't. I know that I am soing something wrong. I am at the bottom of the rung with computer knowledge. I tried to save this file into a new folder in my documents and then tried to open it to scan and nothing is there. I'm sorry. I guess I am not understanding how to actually download this file to use it. My computer is running so slow I am afraid it is going to crash before I can figure out what to do.

are you on dial up or adsl/dsl
if on adsl/dsl - can you just try clicking on link and opening the file rather than save.
it will give you a warning about temp files after that see what version it is.

i have requested a guru to look at the log

Go to Add/Remove programs and uninstall these programs:

ViewPoint or ViewPoint Media Player
Winad Client


I also recommend that you uninstall Wild Tangent. See here:

http://www.kephyr.com/spywarescanner/library/wildtangent/index.phtml


I did not Add Weatherbug to my list for removal, but it is adware. Check this out for info on Weatherbug and make your own decision:

Here are two adware free alternatives:

http://www.tropicdesigns.net/ -----> I use this one.

Restart your computer after each uninstall and then rescan with Hijack This and post another log.
