Popup Ads after bootup

Unread postby NapoleonGuy » October 28th, 2008, 1:32 pm

Windows XP ... automatic patches ... norton 360 2.0 ... still getting ads.

First, I was getting audio-only ads every 15-20 minutes "you have won a free computer". Ran HiJackThis,then MalWareBytes Anti-Malware 1.30, which removed25 items. Rebooted. Now I'm getting popup ad windows for "TrueCredit".

Note: I installed WebWatcher to track kids on internet (successfully, but that's another story). WebWatcher is running well.

Please help me get rid of this ..stuff..

Here's my HiJackThis log...

Hi NapoleonGuy

Yes, we need first to find out what it is.

Please click this link-->Jotti

Copy/paste the file on the list into the white Upload a file box and click Submit/Send (depends on which one you are using Jotti or VirusTotal).

C:\WINDOWS\system32\Nyqw2fv0.exe

Please post back the results of the scan in your next post.

If Jotti is busy, try the same at Virustotal: http://www.virustotal.com/

The file has disappeared, and the pop-up ads have stopped (for now). Malware reports no more viruses. So, I think I am set. I didn't do anything else except run HiJackThis again.

I will open a new topic if the problem repeats. Thanks for the help, shaba.

By the way, I like the Jotti website.
