As of last night my computer has been running unbearably slow, and i don't know why. Oh and i keep getting random virus scanner pop ups on firefox. I ran everything. ccleaner, spybot, hijackthis, avg and NOTHING is getting rid of it. When i ran spybot it came up with some trojans and malware but couldnt fix them for some reason. please suggest anything and ask me any questions, i want my computer back

Pour this all over the computer. That should do the trick.


IN ALL SERIOUSNESS, try what has already been mentioned and if that doesn't work (and you don't mind spending money), try NOD32.

Be careful with that kind of talk. The Feds get very interested in that kind of talk. Next thing you know, your house is being raided and all your computer gear is gone... and so are you.

Okay i started up in safe mode. What should I do?


Run scanners, if threats are found it's likely that you CAN delete them now you're in safe mode.

Quote by Freddedonna
Reboot in safe mode, run anti-virus and anti-spyware, reboot normally.

This.

Avast! is the best, it makes me feel like I'm in a cheesey sci-fi flick when I heard the "WARNING, WARNING, VIRUS DETECTED".

Makes me want to get more viruses...

Quote by Pooinsky
Format your computer, if you want to be completely rid.

God, I see this in every virus thread. You almost never have to do this. Just runs the scans in safe mode like suggested above. Also GOOGLE the virus name once you find it.

download and boot into knoppix, delete everything suspicious on the windblows partition, you can then go do what windblows users do.
Yeah i finally got round to all this, so, what shall i put here?

#25
The name of the virus i have is virtumonde.

Does anyone know anything about it?
#26
I had it. No good fun, that one. Don't remember what it did, though, but I do remember the hell I went through to get rid of it.

How did you get rid of it?
#29
Like I said, I don't remember, I only remember how difficult it was.
I suggest you look up Virtumonde on Google, there must be ways of getting rid of it described somewhere.

I would Google Kaspersky if I were you. One usually has to pay for it, but there are some ways around that, ifyouknowhatimean. The best anti-virus by far.

I have the same thing. I booted up in safe mode and scanned with AD-Aware and removed all the threats but I'm still getting pop ups.

ugh..goddamnit. thats just what i was going to do. well lemme know if you get rid of it.
#36
I've got virtumonde too. My sister got a trojan a couple of days ago that pretty much devastated her laptop, and I suspect it might have been the same thing. Guess it's time for me to follow the advice in this thread.
#37
Wait, is this the one that has all the fake antispyware ads that pop up all the time? I got that once. I think what I did was download SuperAntiSpyware and run it in safe mode.
Mmmm, coffee
