Analysis and Malware Removal / I need your help Corrine.
« on: January 30, 2010, 06:58:28 AM »
 My firewall popped up with a warning and stupidly I allowed the action. First thing i noticed was that a program called "Antivirus Soft"  downloaded itself and started scanning my computer, and on the right hand side it said "Antivirus Software Alert" "Your computer is being attacked by an internet virus. It could be a password-stealing attack, a trojan -dropper or similar".

-I googled on how to remove the virus
-I tried dowloading "kavremover9", it downloaded, but it wouldnt open. It gives this message everytime i try to open it "Application cannot be executed. The file kavremover9.exe is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus software now?"
-I also tried downloading a program called "Malware bytes", i tried extracting it, but it wouldnt let me.
-Next thing i did was shutdown my computer, and running it in "Safe mode with networking". I tried downloading the programs, but after 5 mins, the computer shut off. I turned it back on, and tried running it in "Safe mode with networking", but the computer shut off again.
-Also, the virus keeps opening up an internet explorer window and these sites keep popping up "porno.org", and "viagra.com", and it wouldnt let me use internet explorer to go on any other websites besides those two.
-I kept googling, and came across a post in "gardenweb.com" that sort of sounded similar to that problem i have. A user named ravencajun, suggested to the topic starter: "that sounds like it could be one of the bad ones possibly vundo, let me suggest you go here and post in this area, ask Corrine for help tell her I sent you, she will assist you with this using some special programs. Be sure to say in your post that you are unable to get a hijack this log or run AV programs including online scans."  and the problem was solved. But the topic starter never posted what solved his problem, so i came here, hoping that you'd help me.
