Hello, i'm linked to this site from an other forum :) . So hi!

I was just watching videos on a site named ''dumpert.nl'' a Dutch populair video website. In all of a sudden a black screen popped op with a message in the upper left corner! I couldn't do anything! In about 20 seconds the normal windows view popped op and my whole right screen was filled with send messages from MSN. Many of them were not send but there are a few slipped through.

I've just build my new computer and have not visited any illegal or p0rn sites (yet :P ) :( .

I've ran a HJT scan and here is the log:

Hi Rickzz and welcome to the forums

Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running ComboFix tool:


Please ensure you read this guide carefully and install the Recovery Console first.

The Windows Recovery Console will allow you to boot up into a special recovery (repair) mode. This allows us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware. It is a simple procedure that will only take a few moments of your time.

Once installed, you should see a blue screen prompt that says:

The Recovery Console was successfully installed.

Please continue as follows:

  1. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix, link
    Remember to re-enable them afterwards.

  2. Click Yes to allow ComboFix to continue scanning for malware.

When the tool is finished, it will produce a report for you.

Please include the following reports for further review, and so we may continue cleansing the system:

New HijackThis log.

A word of warning: Neither I nor sUBs are responsible for any damage you may have caused your machine by running ComboFix. This tool is not a toy and not for everyday use.

Due to lack of response, this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
