Rogue browser ads and hidden video

Unread postby KhakiMan » December 7th, 2010, 7:55 pm

Started receiving rogue browser popups and hear video ads a few days ago. Problems began after seeing an old pixelated Windows Update icon appear in the task bar and then some 'disk scanning' tool appeared. I managed to delete the disk scanning tool from the users/username/temp directory after disconnecting from the internet and rebooting. However, lingering problems have been the popups, which also show porn ads and when you click 'close', they actually launch a new tab... I close that tab as soon as I can to avoid further problems.

Video ads can only be viewed if all applications/browsers minimized.

Looking at Task Manager, I see a number of iexplore.exe instances and the Flash ActiveX.exe appear when popups/video appear.

Virus scan (Microsoft Security Essentials) found a Trojan which was successfully removed.

Really appreciate your assistance! I am prepared to wipe out the drive and install a fresh Windows 7.

Hi and welcome to Malware Removal Forum, sorry for the delay in answering your request for help the forum is really busy.
My name is Cypher, and I will be helping you with your malware problems.
If you no longer require help i would be grateful if you would let me know.

Before we start please note the following important guidelines.
  • The instructions being given are for YOUR computer and system only!.
    Using these instructions on a different computer, can damage that computer and possibly make it inoperable!
  • If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to ask.
  • Only post your problem at One help site. Applying fixes from multiple help sites can cause problems.
  • Only reply to this thread do not start another, Please continue responding until I give you the "All Clean"
    Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.
  • Please DO NOT run any other tools or scans whilst I am helping you.
  • Please DO NOT install any other software (or hardware) during the cleaning process.
  • Print each set of instructions... if possible...your Internet connection will not be available during some fix processes.
  • Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.
  • Note: No Reply Within 3 Days Will Result In Your Topic Being Closed!

Note: If you haven't done so already, please read this topic ALL USERS OF THIS FORUM MUST READ THIS FIRST where the conditions for receiving help here are explained.
Please be aware that removing Malware is a potentially hazardous undertaking. I will take care not to knowingly suggest courses of action that might damage your computer. However it is impossible for me to foresee all interactions that may happen between the software on your computer and those we'll use to clear you of infection, and I cannot guarantee the safety of your system. It is possible that we might encounter situations where the only recourse is to re-format and re-install your operating system, or to necessitate you taking your computer to a repair shop.

Because of this, I advise you to backup any personal files and folders before you start.
Backup Made Easy - XP
How to backup your data - Vista


Quick question is this PC used for business purposes personal or both?

The computer is used for both personal and business

I see you are posting for help for a "Business" computer.

May I draw your attention to THIS topic, which you should have read before posting for help.

The section Posting for help for business machines explains why we do not offer help for such computers.

This topic is now closed
