contacts in hotmail being spammed

Unread postby Geoff-canada » August 30th, 2011, 8:39 pm

Hi there

I appear to have had my email account comprised as it started spamming emails out to all contacts. The email accout has since been suspended but i suspect I have something malicious on my machine. I ran malwarebytes and it found and cleaned this

Registry Data Items Infected:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\control panel\Homepage (PUM.Hijack.HomePageControl) -> Bad: (1) Good: (0) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

Just want to confirm i am not still infected with anything.

Thanks

By posting just a description of your problems it is likely that your topic will be passed by and you will not receive the help you're looking for.

We need to know what's running on your computer so we can give you appropriate instructions.

May I draw your attention to THIS topic, which you should have read, and which tells you what we need you to post so that we can help you.

This topic will now be closed.

If you still need help, please start a new thread with:

  • FRST.txt
  • Addition.txt
  • Details of your problems.

If for any reason you can't run FRST, please let us know in your post.
