Popups and computer running slow (I think TROJ_CLICKER.AGD)

Unread postby pinky » October 11th, 2008, 10:36 pm

When I am on the computer I am constantly seeing popups that show:

Trend Micro Critical Message Subscription has Expired (but it hasn't)
Gambling websites

I also think that it has made the computer start to run slower than usual.

I believe it began in the last 3 to 4 weeks, and began when the kids downloaded something from LimeWire. I have since removed LimeWire.

I am posting a current HijagThis Log.

Hi pinky,

When I am on the computer I am constantly seeing popups that show:
Trend Micro Critical Message Subscription has Expired (but it hasn't)
Gambling websites
There may be some sort of problem with the Trend software even though your subscription has not expired. We will check your machine for malware but I may need to refer you to Trend technical support for help with this.

Are the popups for Gambling websites appearing in your browser? How often do they appear?

I believe it began in the last 3 to 4 weeks, and began when the kids downloaded something from LimeWire. I have since removed LimeWire.
It's not possible to use these programs safely so removing it was a good idea.

I am really very computer illiterate :D
If you have any problems with my instructions please stop and let me know :)

------------------------------------------------------------------------

First, please open HijackThis, choose Do a system scan only and place a checkmark next to the following lines:
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {7E853D72-626A-48EC-A868-BA8D5E23E045} - (no file)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Alcmtr] ALCMTR.EXE
Then close all open windows apart from HijackThis, press Fix checked, OK the prompt and close HijackThis.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

  • Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to your Desktop (right-click the link, select Save Target As..., select your Desktop and press Save)
  • Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  • At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to both of these options:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select Perform Quick Scan, then click Scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Make sure everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When finished, a log will open in Notepad. Please save it to your Desktop, and post the contents in your reply.
  • The log can also be found here if you need it:
    • Start->All Programs->Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware->Logs

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Download RSIT by random/random to your Desktop (right-click the link, select Save Target As..., select your Desktop and press Save)

  • Double click RSIT.exe to start the program, and click Continue at the disclaimer screen.
  • When the scan is complete, two text files will open - log.txt <- this one will be maximized and info.txt <-this one will be minimized
  • Make sure Format->Word Wrap is unchecked
  • Copy (Ctrl+A then Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V) the contents of log.txt and info.txt in your reply

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once complete, please post the Malwarebytes Antimalware report and both RSIT logs, you won't need to produce a new HijackThis log as RSIT produces one for you.
