I have the "you may have a security problem" trojan

Unread postby Scottiff » March 11th, 2009, 8:41 am

I have an anti virus trojan, at least that's what I call it, that has gotten on my computer and has taken it over. I have tried every form of anti-virus, anti-malware to get rid of it. The programs find the problem, and I select remove and they still exist. I have used Malwarebytes, AntiVir PE, and I have ZoneAlarm full security. Here is my latest HiJackThis logfile.

We are sorry you have waited so long for a response. As you can see, we are quite busy as are all the other help forums. Also, it is possible that you received no response because there was no malware evident in your HijackThis log.

If you still require help, please start a new topic and post a fresh HijackThis log, along with a complete description of all symptoms you are currently experiencing that make you feel your system is infected with malware. Also, in the same post, please include an Uninstall List.

To create an Uninstall List, open HijackThis and, from the Main Menu > click on the "Open the Misc Tools section" button > click "Open Uninstall Manager" > click "Save List." Save the list to your Desktop or any convenient location. Next, copy the contents of the Uninstall List and paste it into the same post as your HijackThis log.

This topic is now closed. Please start a new topic by following the HijackThis Guideline posted here, and be sure to include your Uninstall List: >Guideline for posting your HijackThis log<
