NEVER thought this would happen to me

Unread postby gtmaster303 » August 15th, 2010, 3:38 pm

I've tried fairly hard to figure out what's going on, but at this point, i'm at the end of my rope. I've run out of ideas, and i need some help. I'll try to provide as much info as possible. If you need any more info, just say the word, and i'm on it.

I am pretty responsible when it comes to my computer. Never had problems before. I know exactly what i download and install, but for some reason, i have been a wave of problems lately.

Was watching a movie one night on VLC, and AVG started popping up trojan alerts. I let AVG handle it, and then my computer blue screened shortly thereafter.
restarted and did a virus scan with many infections. lots of trojans and a worm too, i believe.

the only source of problems i can think of is: i do download torrents, but make sure to scan the file with AVG before opening.
Computer symptoms:
AVG warnings (at first, not anymore)
Firefox will randomly pop up new tabs to irrelevant sites for no reason. Links will also get redirected to BS sites.

I checked my processes, and nothing seems out of the ordinary.
I did some clean up with AVG and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.
Latest AVG and Malware scans come up clean.
All software is up to date.
The problem still persists though.
Just right now a new tab opened up to this site: http://www.toseeka.com/

Can someone tell me what's going on and how to fix it?
Thanks

Please familiarize yourself with the forum rules: >Forum Posting Rules - Please Read<

We're sorry, but it is necessary to close your topic because you have replied to it prior to receiving a response from a helper.

Due to adding on to your topic with your second post it is highly unlikely that you would have received a response. Our helpers are looking for topics with zero responses. When you post replies to your own topic, it no longer has zero responses, and so it appears that you have received help when in fact, you have not.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Malware Removal forum and wait for assistance. Please do not run additional programs and/or post additional logs. Just your HijackThis log to start with is adequate. Your helper will ask for additional logs as needed. DO NOT reply to your own topic until you have received a response from a helper. Be patient. There are others who have been waiting longer than you, so do not expect an immediate reply.
