Q: Cant find/remove detected adware_memwatcher; Slow system & internet; JRE webapps slow

Thanks guys, I haven't done this in awhile so please bear with me...

After an older system of mine seemed to suddenly slow down and a current Symantec scan came up with nothing I ran Housecall on my system. Housecall found Adware_aeropopups and Adware_memwatcher before Housecall itself slowed down to nothing and died. I could not use Housecall to clean the malware/spyware cookies. I ran the Java Housecall plug-in; not the ActiveX. I then ran defrag and that helped some for the system so it seemed. However, the internet is stll quite slow on many occasions.

I ran Hijackthis and have pasted the log below along with a few system details. I only see GoogleDesktop in the log below as a potential problem. Please help! Everything else seems normal to my untrained eye. I will try adaware next if it is still free to use.

I'm running Windows XP Pro SP3 and IE 7.0.5730.11
I run Symantec Norton AV and have installed Avast in an effort to access another AV library. I know they will conflict from time to time and will remove one of them later.

Preferred Solution: Cant find/remove detected adware_memwatcher; Slow system & internet; JRE webapps slow

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

My system has been very slow for the last 24 hours. Startup was slow. Programs not loading. Even the google home page wasn't loading properly.

I restarted my router and the issues seem to be better but I think there is still a malware issue in the background somewhere.

Please help!

Hello,
I have an XP Home pc that's experiencing slow internet and slow OS. I also had a problem with Comcast mail. They put a block on my account saying it was sending bulk mail when I didn't even know it was doing that. They mentioned it could be spyware. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

I guess I fit all my problems into the topic title there.
Running Avast! antivirus and it found the Spigot Search Protection and said I should remove it, but every time I restart it's right there again to say I should remove it.
Thanks for the help!

A:Very slow, lagging and "Spigot Search Protection" detected but can't remove.

 Download Malwarebytes from here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/malwarebytes-anti-malware/ , get it up to date and do a scan.  When it finishes, click Quarantine all and follow the onscreen instructions.  
 
Good luck.

Ad-Aware detects VX2 and WurldMedia on my computer but can't remove or quarantine either. I already tried Spybot S&D, Ad-Aware, CounterSpy, SuperAntiSpyware, ATF-Cleaner, XoftSpy and HijackThis but to no avail. When I used XoftSpy SE, the viruses no longer showed up on Ad-Aware scans, but I know it's still on the comptuer because my computer runs awefully slow. AVG Antivirus also detected a threat with the file 2BEC090Ad01 inside Local Settings\Firefox\Profiles\gn7th1z6.default\Cache folder. My desktop also had a shortcut named "1" which I assume the virus generated. Please help?

First,

Thank you for all of your efforts in providing this service! It is much appreciated. Now, on to my issue..

A couple of days ago, my PC started to behave really strange and became very slow. My McAffee popped up a notice saying that the Trojan "vundo" was detected, and it looked like it tried to clean the file, but it said "clean failed".

I installed PC Tools Internet Security that day after searching for something that could remove the dreaded "vundo", and installed and ran the scans. It found the "vundo" (called virtumonde), and promptly quarantined it.

Everything seemed fine until this morning, when after sitting idle for the weekend, my PC would not boot in Normal mode. I eventually got it to boot in Safe mode, where I ran a scan and noticed that the "vundo" was back!

I have followed the instructions on this forum, and here is my HijackThis log:

A couple weeks ago I surfed a site with a lot of pop up ads and my internet started slowing down. I ran windows Defender and it detected Trojan: js/tracur.f and three of the Java/CVE exploit family members (java/cve-2011-3544 is the only one I remember and I didn't record them before removal). Defender was able to remove all of them, and later MBAM threat scans and Windows defender full scans detected nothing, but my internet is still slow. I use the latest edition of Google Chrome and often times it either takes a long time to load a page, or the page takes multiple reloads and sometimes just killing the page and reloading from there to get it to load. Just about everywhere on the net acts like this, it doesn't seem linked to anywhere specific. And when I download stuff on Steam, the download speed rarely stays above 600 Kb/s and frequently drops below one hundred, or into the bytes/sec range. Usually it can reliably get up to 700 Kb/s or more, and rarely drops below 200 Kb/s, if even there.
 
Can anyone tell me what's going on?

This is the first time I've ever posted something. Generally, I do my own research and then fix the issue, but I'm at a loss. So, any help is greatly appreciated. btw - I did not download anything (to my knowledge).

Issues:
1) Extremely slow system - When monitoring my system performance, it is almost always maxed out (even when only running Firefox).
2) When I click on "My Computer" - nothing will show up and it just shows Windows "Searching"
3) My Wireless Network is no longer working - I guess I may need to re-install the driver
4) When I restart or shut-down, I get an error with the following (Wireless; Power Tray; and something else...will post when I do it again)
5) My system tray does not seem to load all applications - At least I'm thinking so.

What I've done:
1) Updated version and ran virus scan from symatec
2) Updated version and ran virus scan for malwareadbytes Anti-Malware
3) Ran Autorun Eater
4) And now I have the Hijackthis log

Any idea what my issue may be??? I appreciate the help.

Okay I'm going to do a full PC check but all my systems seem fine as of yesterday. A little background to help others help me I'm on a Windows Small Business Server 2003 environment with no other server connection but one machine, I have 3 shared drives created on the server and am running Shared Point Services 2.0 as well and all my computers on the network have a login script assigned to them when booting onto the network so their drives are automatically mapped. Oh and I have POS old Sony laptop running as a proxy using Winproxy 5.0, but it has about a gig of speed and 512 RAM and the connection goes: in from the outside, to the proxy, line directly to server, server assigns ISP's by DHCP internally.

Here's a question to start from another thread I posted: About two months back or so I noticed if I put cd's into my PC at work I must have downloaded a rootkit or something because now I cannot play some cd's that I can play on my home computer and others in the office. Now in the future is is safer to burn MP3's on an external harddrive and listen that way or avoid Sony cd's?

Now to the problem, I put in a burned cd this morning it starts up WMP 10 fine and I'm listening to Back in Black then all of a sudden my computer freezes. Crashes my financial program which I think nothing of because I am using Master Builder 11.2 by ... Read more

So lately my internet on my desktop has been running pretty slow, with unusual amounts of popups constantly interrupting. My desktop is pretty old, running on windows xp, but my laptop recently died because of trojans. A-squared had detected trojans and when I tried to quarantine it I guess I damaged an essential file or something because now my windows won't start up on the laptop. Anyways, similar thing has been happening on my desktop and a-squared detected a two high risk files named something like kuang2 and backdoor something (obviously I'm not very computer literate). Anyways here's the hijackthis log. I didn't try to do anything with the trojans this time in case I ended up killing my desktop as well. I'm not sure what other information you guys need, just let me know if you need anything else. Thanks!

Running older PC Clone 2.0 Ghz Dual CPU Pentium, 1GB Ram Win XP Home Edition system.

While navigation on Internet Explorer or Google Chrome, system runs extrememly slow and/or crashes. When using applications such as Itunes, Email, or simply opening up Word and other applications, it runs very slow and almost seems to stop. The IE7 that was on the computer had changed to an operate with add-ons off as a result of the infection. I downloaded and reinstalled IE7 and this seems to have fixed that problem for the time being. MalwareBytes and SuperAntiSpy icons dissappeared from my desktop. When trying to use them from the Start / Menu options the programs no longer worked. I reinstalled them and they appear to work fine now. However, the system still seems to run very slow over all and its performance is greatly hindered.

Next, I ran free version of SuperAntiSpyware and all it detected was a couple Adware cookies. Secondly, I ran free version of Malware Bytes Anti-Malware and it detected PUP.GamePlayLab infections located in the Registry Key: HKLM\SOFTGWARE\Microsoft\Windows.... These files were removed and quarantined by MWB. Thirdly, I ran Old Timer's TFC and then rebooted the computer and it appeared to run a little faster, but still sluggish while using IE7. So, finally, I ran ESET Free Online Scanner, and it detected "Win32/Toolbar.Babylon and Win32/TopMedia.a" virus infections. Scan took about 2 1/2 hours. I set it to search the drives/ar... Read more

A:Help! Slow Computer, Slow Internet. Slow, Slow, Slow!

Hi MaryJane,Sorry for the delay, this forum is really swamped right now. I don't see any positive signs of malware in your log, although there is one thing that I am unsure about. I'll get to that in a minute.Before we do rootkit scans and use some other tools to confirm that malware is not the problem, let's do a quick check of resources.Press <Ctrl>-<Alt>-<Del> to open Task Manager, then click on the Processes tab. Place a check next to Show processes from all users. Note the numbers at the bottom, CPU usage should be running at 0 to no more than five percent if your system is idle (no background tasks running). If that is not the case, scroll down and see if any of the processes is running at a high percentage of CPU usage. On a normal system at idle the System Idle Process should show about 98 percent, meaning nothing else is using the CPU. The next columns to the right, memory usage and peak memory usage, may also show something out of line if one process is using a large amount of memory. If you see anything showing high CPU usage or high Memory usage, make a note of it.Now, click the Performance tab. The key numbers here are in the Commit Charge box -- The Total and Peak figures; and in the Physical Memory box, the Total figure. Make a note of these three numbers. I would like to see them, but I can tell you what I'm looking for: basically, any time the Commit Charge exceeds the total physical memory, Windows will have to constantly swap d... Read more

My laptop was attacked by Cyberlog-X (which opens htepo link) last week and I followed the forums used COmbofix, VundoFix and used avg antivirus to remove. It was able to remove the cyberlog and i am not getting any htepo links. When I ran the spybot I still get Virtumonde, Zedo and others but spybot is unable to clean it.
I ran hijackThis and I am posting the log. Please help me to remove the spyware and my laptop is really slow.

For the past few weeks I've been trying to solve internet problems that have been affecting just one of my computers. I think this originally started when I was forced to reset my router to factory default. No other system on the network seems to have been affected.

The current problem with my computer is that sometimes the internet connection will slow down by a lot for a few minutes. Much of the time it's normal speed, for for periods of a few minutes it will slow down to essentially nothing, but won't actually go out completely. When I try to load web pages under these conditions, my browser (all of them) just sits there loading nothing forever, but won't actually give me a "connection lost" screen. Also, it might only be me, but the connection drops seem to get much worse late at night. I've tried just about every solution I can think of and can't even figure out exactly what the problem is.

The computer is a desktop on wireless. I don't think can move it to a place where there's a wired connection.

Trend Micro OfficeScan detected two objects, BKDR_TDSS.V and BKDR_TDSS.T, which it says it is unable to delete. They are supposedly located at C:\WINDOWS\system32\TDSSaewii.dll and C:\WINDOWS\system32\TDSSurta.dll, respectively, but I can't find any such files in the system32 folder.

Any tips on how to locate and remove these things? I'm pretty much clueless when it comes to computers, so if there's a specific process I have to do, I'd appreciate a step-by-step explanation if it's not too much trouble.

Hi,

My system and particularly internet connection has suddenly started to go really slow.

It isn't as bad when I run it through IE rather than firefox but I would like to understand why and resolve the issue. There is a program called booster web which I cannot seem to get rid of. I have even uninstalled firefox but it's still there.

I've attached my HJT log if you guys could have a look and advise what to do, I would be very grateful. If you would prefer to me post the log within the post let me know.

Thanks.
Gareth.
 

A:Slow system and internet - HJT log attached

Click on this link to download : ADWCleaner Click on ONE of the Two Blue Download Now buttons That have a blue arrow beside them and save it to your desktop. Do not click on any links in the top Advert.

See the screenshot where the proper download buttons are highlighted
NOTE: If using Internet Explorer and you get an alert that stops the program downloading click on Tools > Smartscreen Filter > Turn off Smartscreen Filter then click on OK in the box that opens. Then click on the link again.

Close your browser and double click on this icon on your desktop:

You will then see the screen below, click on the Scan button (as indicated), accept any prompts that appear and allow it to run, it may take several minutes to complete, when it is done, you will get a message saying "PENDING" , Ignore that & click on the Clean button, accept any prompts that appear and allow the system to reboot. You will then be presented with the report, Copy & Paste it into your next post.
Please note: the newer versions of Adwcleaner have a pretty colour display on some versions of windows and slightly different icons. The screenshots are from the older version but are basically the same

Hello, last week the computer when booted simply went to a blue screen and said something along the lines of (INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE) sinse then I have used the win 2k disk to repair the system. The computer now boots correctly but very slowly. I have followed recommended steps to remove viruses and malware, by turning off tea timer from S&D spybot, then installing SUPERanti spyware, Malawarebytes antimalware, installing CCleaner, and finally Hijackthis. I did full system scans with the three programmes mentioned above and they found a trojan vundo, which has now been deleted. Unfortuantly the computer is still running very slowly and the internet like a snail. The computers log showed some very strange messages which mean little to me other than red crosses and caution signs usually mean bad things. Attached the logs from the various programmes listed above, I would appreciate suggestions.
 

A:Solved: Win 2k system and internet very slow

Internet still super slow, used to be super quick on this PC, just had a scenario where all programes that were open were non responsive I could toggle between the various programmes but they would not respond opened up IE fine but as soon as open it would not respond.

About a week ago... went to a site and computer hiccuped. My Norton Corp came up and said that I had a trojan virus. Deleted it and moved on. Normally, this process always has worked. I rebooted it for another reason that night and when Windows XP started my whole taskbar, start menu, and clock are all strange looking. Best way to describe it is that it looks all blocky and like Windows 95. Also noticed that I have no internet. Tried to flush everything out with Your Uninstaller! and clearing internet history. Went into the my startup programs and nothing seemed different. Ran MalwareBytes, came up with one small "eBay" adware. Erased it and moved on. Norton came up with nothing else.

I normally can get out of any jam I get myself in, except for this one.

Anyone have any ideas for a newbie?

Thanks in advance!
