Re: UPDATED: @!*(%$@ I'm infected with spyware/malware again.....anyone else?

Ok HELP! I've been trying to fix it these past few days but we've been infected too! My husband is stark raving mad because this was a computer we bought for the kids but I use it because our computer is completely messed up too. EEK Help! I know its from here(ds) because I don't go anywhere else and its when I've been on this and it completely takes me to places without me clicking on anything!

How do I get rid of it!
We have mcafee and its not working. Its basically telling me it can't help me and that we're already infected. How do I clean it off or get rid of it?
HELP!!
It says there are 10 spyware virus threats detected.

Re: UPDATED: @!*(%$@ I'm infected with spyware/malware again.....anyone else?

fyi I just dealt with a nasty virus the last 2 days. it turned by wallpaper blue with a big warning sign that I had spyware on my computer and then my computer crashed everytime I tried to open firefox or explorer.

From what I read it was "spysheriff" and none of my regular spyware/antivirus stuff worked. I downloaded a program called smitfraudfix.exe which I have used in the past for bad viruses. It worked like a charm. If you google it you can probably find the download link (it's freeware) plus instructions all about starting in safe mode and exactly what to do (its a little steppy). I don't know why this program works when others don't but it's really great.

Also, after the virus was gone my internet still wouldn't work and I found out that whatever happened along the way made it so google desktop was messed up. I didn't even know I had google desktop installed, I know I don't use it, but sure enough, once the virus was gone and I uninstalled google desktop my system is back to normal.

Alright, as much as we can tell the problem was cleared up. If you are infected by something (malware, spyware, or virus), then I am posting up what steps I took to clean up my PC from this attack.

1) Install, update database and run full scan with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. Attach malwarebyte full scan log, fix anything detected.

2) Run full Scan with SuperAntispyware. Fix what it detects.


That knocked out everything and I am running great now!

Same here! Avast has blocked it the past few times this happened. Knocked me completely off of DS while blocking the virus at the same time. Didn't even let the popup windows come up that y'all are talking about. I really recommend Avast and it's free!
