Slow browser, slow internet, random audio ads: virus?

Q: Slow browser, slow internet, random audio ads: virus?

So yeah, I've these problems for the past couple days. My browsers (Opera and Firefox) used to load pages quickly, but now they're painfully slow. Opera lags and freezes often; Firefox doesn't, but it still takes a very long time to load pages.

I'm also getting these occasional "invisible ads," even when I don't have a browser open. I can hear the ads but I can't see them.

Also, I sometimes get redirected to unwanted sites. This mostly happens when I click on a search result in Google.

Here are some things I've done:

-Ran SUPERantispyware (I can post the log(s) if needed)
-Defragged hard drive
-Cleaned cache, cookies, etc. on both browsers

Preferred Solution: Slow browser, slow internet, random audio ads: virus?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

NOTE: I'm currently receiving assistance from another source. I'll assume that I will get my problem fixed from them, so I guess this thread can be closed/locked. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Hi, first time posting here, so sorry if I missed anything in my post.

Both of the internet browsers I use (Opera and Firefox) have been extremely slow lately. Opera hangs and lags often; Firefox doesn't, but like Opera, it loads pages extremely slowly. I've tried cleaning the caches, cookies, temp files, etc. to no avail.

Also, I get these occasional audio ads that start playing even when no internet browser is open. I can't see the ads, but I can hear them. They last for 15 seconds or so. In addition, I sometimes get redirected to unwanted sites when I'm browsing (it usually occurs when I'm clicking on a search result in Google or something).

Recently I was online and there was a popup, I went to close it and my mouse had moved and as unlucky as it was I had clicked download instead of the exit button. It downed some flash pro onto my computer that was inherently linked with some form of a trojan horse. When I'm on the internet occasionally I start to hear audio ads that don't go away even after I close internet explorer, and on the task manager it still shows IE processes running. Additionally when I start internet explorer it inevitably randomly closes in the first 5-10 minutes. Please Help!
I run windows 7 64bit.

Thanks for all the help I know I'm in great hands!
(sadly this is my 2nd virus in under a month after not having one for over two years.)

Hey everyone.

Well just recent I have noticed that I'm facing quite a few different problems. I'm not sure if it could be related to a newly installed WRT120N Linksys router or not because 2 other desktop computers in my household that are connected to it work perfectly fine.

Basically, my internet browser, Firefox, "lags" more than usual and has a very slow response time compared to normal. It takes awhile sometimes just to google search something. It should be quick (other 2 computer's internet connection working blazing fast) but it's not. (Speedtest shows that I should have around 20mb/s downloading speed, but actual use shows otherwise, as it is incredibly slow.) For some reason, Internet Explorer seems to outperform my Firefox too. And yes, I have also tried reinstalling Firefox.

At the same time, every few hours or so, my internet disconnects and the "Limited or no connectivity" warning shows at the bottom.

In addition to that, when I try to repair the connection, I can't because I get the error "Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed: Renewing your IP address" , so I'm unable to renew my IP too.

My ipconfig/all shows funky information too, with the dns servers and everything -ipconfig shown at bottom.

So far, I have tried a few things but have failed at fixing my internet connection. I have these methods already:

Make sure you have the latest driver for your ethernet adapter. If you already have the latest use Device Manager to uninstall it; reboot and let Windows discover the adapter and reinstall it.

Then do the stack/WINSOCK repairs again.

(From a JohnWill post)

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2 or SP3.

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

Reboot the machine.

Hello,

From past 1 week my browser [IE and mozila firefox] is running very slow. In this starting , I got alert and popup from AntiSpywareMaster . Now I set mozilla as my default browser.

Hello

My problems started a few days ago when i noticed a fake anti spyware scanner called security tool. I booted into safe mode and used malwarebytes, spybot and norton to remove it. It was very persistent, so i downloaded lots of anti spyware programs like adaware, spysweeper and so on. Finally i used a tool called security master AV removal tool to kill virus processes before scanning with norton. At that point it found alot of virusses/spyware and removed it succesfully.

Since then i noticed that my internet is slow and when i click on a google result it loads very very slow. Sometimes it gives a nginx error. Sometimes when i click on a result i get a different website.

I don't know what software can help me now at this point. So i searched for this problem with google and found this forum. I hope someone can help me fix this.

Thanks in advance.
Bart

edit : My norton endpoint security gave a warning today : http redirect detected. It blocked this redirect and i did a full scan yesterday. I seems it can't find the virus or spyware that's causing this.

Hi

This has been happening a lot recently, been experiencing a really slow internet browsing on both fire fox and interenet explorer 7 and whenever i'm using firefox it sometimes freezes than works again after a few secs, also having a hard time loading videos on youtube where videos stop loading. Was thinking maybe related to cpu and memory usage, checked windows task manager and see that sometimes have high memory usage like yesterday svchost.exe was running at around 60 000k, ran both spybot and ad-aware but only found cookies related nothing big.

So don't know if memory related problem or infected computer, would really appreciate for someone to have a look at my log and tell me the problem.

Hey, basically computer's been a bit slow and tried clearing some stuff and done other things, but still no luck, to make things worse internet's been a lot slow and when using either firefox and internet explorer. For example when going on youtube some videos would freeze in the middle and i would have to reload the page, and sometimes takes ages to load a page.

So here's my DDS log and hopefully the problem can be diagnosed, thank you.

Starting mid July my computer performannce suddenly slowed down drastically. Basically programs would either run smoothly but take longer to load things, or when I have more programs running they would begin to lag. Since then the computer has become slower, sometimes with extreme lagging, and even freezing, with only 2 programs open. When it first started to happen I tried the usual disk defrag, cleaning out  the cache, temp files, etc. but it's only gotten worst since.
 
Recently, in the last week I've been getting pop ups in my browser. One pop up seems to only happen when I'm on youtube. When I'm on a youtube page it would redirect me to (http://awesomemobi.com/Java_Update/CA/?dv1=BannerConnect%20B.V.). This happens at random moments, sometimes right after youtube loads, sometimes in the middle of watching a video. The frequency at which it happens seems random too. Sometimes I would have to try up to 5 times to view a video because it keeps redirecting me, but sometimes it won't happen at all throughout the day.
 
Another one is this (http://www.erasethatdebt.com/CA/V2/1a.asp?Network=63). This one opens in a new tab everytime and is completely random. It doesn't seem to happen when a specific site is open like the youtube one mentioned above.
 
Since the pop ups began I've scanned the computer with spybot, ad-aware and malwarebytes. Spybot came up with some positive results which I've deleted, but the pop ups still happen.

No, as BHO stands for Browser Helper Objects, which are in reality plugins for your web browser.

Hello all:

I got hit with a browser hijacker I think. I was being redirected to gethotresults.com. I think I have been able to remove that malware, but I am noticing now random audio ads play in the background, and my browser loads pages slowly (compared to a similar build Windows 7 PC that is not affected by any virus. Also, when shutting down the affected PC after attempting to identify/clean, I got an unexpected shutdown bluescreen. I have captured the text of this event if you need it. The affected PC is Windows 7 64-bit.

Hello,

I've had this problem for a couple of weeks now and I can't seem to figure out what caused it or how to fix it. The computer in question is a Pentium 4 Prescot, it is on a domain and is configured the same as all other machines on the network (TCP/IP wise). It is powered on 24 hours a day and has been for a couple years now. This machine serves out a several webcams and is a host for my inbound RDC connection from work. It is very stable and has had no issues up until now. I formatted and re-installed the OS when I moved in here about 6 months ago. What is happening is this; at seemingly random times the machine will completely lose ping to all network resources. All network connectivity is lost but under network connections I still see "Internet Connection" showing "connected" (meaning the cable is still working). I have replaced the network cable, so that isn't it. I do not see any events logged when connectivity is lost or restored except for the system logging DCOM errors saying it cannot reach various network resources. When I go to the network connection and "repair" it, it usually comes back fine... a reboot also seems to solve the problem, but eventually, usually in a day or two, it will drop again. I think it may be a piece of malware running because someone was using my machine for a few days before this started happening and I think they may have gone to some unsafe websites. I've attached my logs below:

64-bit OS

The fan is constantly running to keep the laptop cool as if a power hungry program is running. He frequently complains of IE not responding. The laptop will also randomly not respond to the touchpad or hot keys. Lately random audio files (people talking) will play when the computer is ON but not in use.
 
Please help. In anticipation of your support I have downloaded toe following programs already:

Hi there,judging from your log I'd say you infected your computer by trying to install a pirated version of Nitro Pro. Does that make sense?Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.(If you are not sure which version (32-/64-bit) applies to your system, download and try to start both of them as just the right one will run.)Start FRST with administator privileges.Make sure the option Addition.txt is checked and press the Scan button.When finished, FRST will produce two logs (FRST.txt and Addition.txt) in the same directory the tool was run from.Please copy and paste these logs in your next reply.

I am new to this so if you need any more information just let me know. I have been leting my brother use my computer and he has been downloading things like crazy.

I'd appreciate any help I can get ! Thanks

A:Slow Slow Slow Browser, Applications Failing

How long has it been since Windows was installed? Have you done any regular file maintenance, like deleting old files you don't need anymore, deleting temp files, uninstalling programs you don't use anymore, deleting months-old system restore points, etc, and then running scandisk, and lastly, running defrag? Maybe it's not a virus. You may just be running out of room on your hdd.

For some odd reason, in the past 4 weeks, my streaming video has become VERY slow, and I do not know why. I have a high-speed cable connection, the same I have had for the past 6 months. It is slow, sound-with-stil-images and/or constantly rebuffering, and this is true with WIndows Media, Winamp, Realplayer and even Flash videos (on YouTube for example). I cannot take it anymore.

Its so rediculous it can even go up to about 100,000. Now, what im wondering here is why this is happening. As far as I know There arent any viruses/spyware/malware on my computer so as of now Im completely baffled. If anyone here could give me any insight on this matter it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in Advance.

As I understand it, 50-100 MB is not an unusual footprint for IE. I've also read that IE sometimes has problems releasing unused memory.

I am hearing random windows selection noises as if you were clicking something in internet explorer and commercials for Lysol and similar products whether I am browsing the internet (I use Firefox) or playing a game.

I was trying to play an online game but I was getting minimized quite often.

I had recently installed Avast anti-virus and Online Armor firewall after this started happening just because I wanted to switch but, they seemed to slow my computer down so I got rid of them. My computer was taking a very long time to start up and after I uninstalled Online Armor, things were back to normal.

My computer has also been freezing.

I do have a Windows CD available.

I am sorry to tell you that one or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan / rootkit .

This type of infection allows hackers to remotely control your computer, log keystrokes, steal critical system information, and download and execute files without your knowledge.

If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation. Please refer to Microsoft's Online Safety article for tips on creating a strong password.

Do not change passwords or do any transactions from the infected computer until it has been cleaned.

Hi there. I'm writing on the tail end of a windowsfixdisk infection after surfing in places I shouldn't have been. I have windows xp pro with its firewall active, and I have Avira as my AV program, but these still let the program through. I've since been using the removal guide on this site to get rid of that damn program, and I was successful in removing it.

However, for the parts of the guide that suggested to run RKill and TDSSKiller before using Malwarebyte's, neither program would run the way the guide said they would (i.e., no black box with progress for RKill, and either no response at all from TDSSKiller regardless of how it's renamed, or an application error dialog saying "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click on OK to terminate the program" when I rename it to IExplore.exe or Explorer.exe). I decided to just go ahead and run Malwarebyte's anyway, and it seems like it and Avira tag-teamed the infection to remove it.

So, everything seemed to be fine, until I started to use my computer again. Then I noticed that I'd get random audio ads playing in the background, my google search results would get redirected when I clicked them, my browser and computer seem to be lagging, and I get these Internet Explorer script error dialog boxes popping up with different advertising-based URLs such as "http://couponswapper.com/video/player/cheap_chick/all/1/?utm_source=adon_113320_150752_21983&utm_med...

My husband's laptop has been running really slowly lately especially when browsing. He uses Firefox when he is on while I and our daughters prefer IE when we use his computer. W don't seem to have as much trouble as he does but it stills runs slow.

Last night I had something disturbing happen -- when I was trying to go to facebook.com it kept going to a page warning that I was about to leave the website. Yet I hadn't actually gotten to the website yet. I was eventually able to get to facebook but that incident bothered me.

Here is a HJT log. Thank you in advance for your help.

I don't quite know what you need to know about my system, but here are a few aspects:
dell studio 1375
intel core 2 duo
windows vista


*excuse my lack of knowledge regarding computer systenms and technology

I've had my computer for a year and a half now with no major problems to date. However, in the past week, my computer has been acting up.
Any audio/video file (itunes, windows media, youtube, etc.) will play a few seconds then skip terribly for a few more and repeat --I cannot listen to any music or play any videos without this problem.
When I'm moving my mouse from one place on the screen to another, the mouse continuously catches -it will move normally, then stop for a second or two and jump to catch up, it is as if it's skipping too.
In addition to this, my internet is slower than usual. I am using Internet Explorer 8. Perhaps my internet might be slower because I've haven't downloaded IE 9 yet, but i doubt that would affect all audio and my mouse as well.

Any ideas as to the cause of all this and a possible solution? thanks so much

A:Slow internet/ skipping audio

Boot off of the Vista DVD in and choose Fix My Computer. If this still fails, go to Start/Search and type CMD and press enter. in the command prompt type Chkdsk /R and press enter. Now type a Y and reboot the computer. The Check Disk utility will run at next boot up.
