Q: Annoying ads, being sent to other pages, etc

I have installed Spybot, Malwarebytes, and Ad-Aware along with my normal AVG Anti-Virus yet I am still getting constantly redirected to other sites, ads popping up for things I didn't click on, etc. Usually I can get rid of this stuff easily, but this crap just isn't going away. I have some screenshots to help out.

Preferred Solution: Annoying ads, being sent to other pages, etc

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.)

Help!
I sell ( and buy) and sometimes buy more than sell...but that's another problem...on eBay. For months I have been getting an annoying message "the parameter is incorrect" when trying to view eBay pages. EBay's tech support suggested I might delete old shortcut and set new which I did. Actually, I have several times. Tonight I am getting a totally blank page. There is no error number or anything other than the parameter line. The rest of the page is blank and now page is totally blank! I have nosed around on the web and find that I am not the only one getting this message. Everybody else I have seen has some other identifiable error message along with the one I get. Microsoft addresses several problems related to that message but with other browsers, programs or again, other error messages along with the parameter one. I have Norton firewall and antivirus which is current and just scanned (again)...no virus found. Downloaded SpyBot today and fixed the few things that it found. Have not installed Hijack this. I may do that next but will need help with the log. ANY help would be appreciated!

Check the Control Panel's Add/Remove Programs feature for 'Active Alert' and 'Internet Optimizer'. If these entries are there, using both should result in InternetOptimizer's correct removal.

if you dont see either of those in there,
download, install and run Ad-aware SE Personal from www.lavasoftusa.com

that should take care of it

A few days ago my firefox browser, which for no apparent reason at all, just seemed to slow to a stupendously very slow loading of pages. I had recently just been working on an issue in which I posted a thread regarding whether there was a possible virus/malware after google chrome terminated with the following message from Hitman Pro Alert:
 
 
Attack Intercepted
'Google Chrome 49' has been terminated to prevent execution of malicious code. Please check your computer for malware and software updates
 
As it happened, it appeared to be because of a conflict somewhere in the Google Chrome, Trusteer Rapport and Hitman Pro Alert combination, and so the only way was to change the settings on Hitman Pro Alert as advised and shown in my thread:

For the last few days I have been getting some odd behavior when I try to access my accounts on several websites. When I access the legitimate website and try to log in, I am redirected to a phishing page which asks for account information, including credit card numbers, ATM Pin, etc.

There was one other post I found here that had what appeats to be the same problem, but I have not been able to successfully remove the issue myself from following the help you provided to him. (http://forums.techguy.org/malware-removal-hijackthis-logs/736876-solved-ebay-paypal-fake-web.html)

Using OTScanIT and modifying slightly the fix script provided to the other user I was able to briefly get my Ebay account working again, but when I tried to access my bank account (Wells Fargo) I am now being redirected to the fake page again. I'm not sure what information it would be helpful to include here to help analyze what is going on. I recall having had this same problem once on another computer which is no longer experiencing the issue, but don't know what exactly I did to resolve it other than installing Avast and running a full clean (which I cannot do here, as this is a work computer that will not allow me to replace the existing virus scanning software). I do have limited installation capabilities on this machine, and have installed HijackThis and OTScanIT as well as Malwarebytes to aid in resolving this.

Hi guys ( and girls )

I have an Acer Asspire 5332 running Vista.

A month or so ago the CD/DVD rom stopped working. Device Manager states it is unable to start and updating driver/uninstalling device etc does nothing either, other than recognise the drive as "standard cd rom" whereas it is actually a dvd rewriter. Acer tech support say that windows should pick up the driver automatically and cannot understand what the problem is. They do not provde a driver for the cd/dvd unit.

Then, in the last 2 weeks, certain web pages have failed to open, namely Hotmail and Facebook. All I get is a blank page with no error message Also videos on all sites intermittently work and don't work, saying I need to install Javascript which I already have! I have done all the usual checks and fixes ( internet options / javascript uninstall reinstall etc, as well as un-installing internet explorer itself.

Using another browser ( Safari ) opens up all pages including Hotmail and Facebook fine, but I still get the issue with the videos.

Does this sound like a virus? I have run Avast scan, and Malwarebytes and CC Cleaner. I am posting a "Hijack this log" for any braniancs to look over. Not sure if it is one problem, or several but doing my head in !!!

thanks in advance,
Rob

I suppose the title says it all, my computer has some sort of infection where every search in google in both firefox and internet explorer redirect the searches to random pages. Additionally, typing in certain addresses simply won't load where I know the page should work, such as certain links on microsoft.com. Furthermore, I have enabled Automatic Updates and it tells me that it is not enabled even though it clearly is in the settings and going to the update page through internet explorer simply does not work. I have read through various other forums here at bleepingcomputer.com and followed their instructions but nothing has fixed the problem so I figured I'd post as well and start fresh. A huge thanks in advance to whomever is able to help me out. So, where do I begin?

hello all

i have started noticing "hijacked pages,"

and that (so far, only when using "chrome," which is outdated - NOT by choice but because i am stuck with windows vista and GOOGLE will not longer support it...),

sometimes chrome will "hang" when attempting to perform operations such as "clear browsing data,

and then if i attempt to close chrome, it will make it so that system processes(?) such as my toolbar, ctrl+alt+del/task mgr, and restart will not work, forcing me to need to manually power off my computer,

and now as of today, most pages are not loading ("err_connection_failed" in chrome, but ALSO IN FIREFOX a lot of pictures in pages are not loading),

so i fear i have malware...

Hi newbie here so go easy on me :wave:

My mum has a realtively newly built PC (about 2 weeks old), and has XP Professional installed along with Norton Antivirus 2003.

She is using dial-up internet with an external modem, and although her default homepage (bbc) loads straight away after that browsing becomes progressively slower and slower. Some pages do not load up at all after a while and she is forced to turn off her connection and try again. She cannot access any secure sites at all (for her internet banking and buying things). She has cleared her cache to no avail.

I have been told to see if a firewall is blocking secure ports 443, 84 and/or 8443. I'm not sure how to check that? I'm not even sure she has a firewall installed at all?

Should she try Mozilla Firefox? Should I install Norton?

I've checked her dialup internet provided (lineone/tiscali) and there appears to be no problems?

I've pasted SysInfo below.
Whenever I enter a search on google.com, new malware search results show up.
Sometimes clicking on a link I want to get to opens up a new browser tab that I didn't ask for. Sometimes this happens even when clicking on any random space on the page, not even on a link.
The other day I opened Youtube and there were all these new Youtube videos showing up on my home page in another language that I had no interest in.
Someone else uses this computer once in a while and I think they may not be aware of what links and downloads to avoid.

Ok forewarned this is a high level problem.

So I had a problem with IE where it wasnt storing pages in history, I closed all my IE windows, and using ccleaner wiped the history file (I assume was corrupt) and that fixed that problem, but I made a new one, info as follows.

I normally on IE my first IE window has about 15 or so tabs loaded, which I use as reference points, for whatever reason I didnt bookmark these tabs but simply they were always loaded in the firs tIE windows after reboots etc. so basically on reboots I would close this IE windows last, and on the first IE window after reboot I would select "reopen last browsing session" from the menu to recover these tabs understood so far? What I did with ccleaner wiped this session, and those pages had hugely important info to me in them.

I have no system restore point to get it back.

I do have a norton recovery image 10 days old.

Now the new problem.

Norton recovery images are made with the system running, almost certianly I had IE open at the time. So there is no me importing IE files, starting IE and simply selecting "reopen last browsing session" as when norton did its image IE was running. So this leaves what?

The crash recovery data, when IE is running it stores data on whats currently open incase it crashes and so can recover.

In the image I have mounted there is the following folder. (Q drive)

Q:\Users\Chris\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Recovery

Inside it is various dat... Read more

A:importing IE9 recovery pages to get loaded pages back

Ok I have done it, here is how.

IE prepends its recovery files with 'RecoveryStore.'

and each session file is named like this '{9AC84612-1C85-11E3-AF5A-001B213DE643}.dat'
So a recovery file is like this 'RecoveryStore.{7ACE6B97-256F-11E3-96B2-001B213DE643}.dat'

When IE is running it has a registry key matching the name at 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Recovery\Active'
The key is without the prepend and file extension so such as '{7ACE6B97-256F-11E3-96B2-001B213DE643}'

If IE closes down successful the key is deleted from the registry.
If it crashes the key still exists, so on startup IE checks for the key and loads the associated .dat file to recover tabs.

So I have them recovered luckily.

Hello

A friend of mine has this problem. Has a low speed broadband connection with Bigpond (Telstra) - uses IE and Firefox. the problem is he cannot move from the home pages that loads to any other website either via a link or typing a search or address.

If you change the home page and re-open the browser it will go to that website, even when it would not before if you tried to move to it from the previous home page?

Modem as been reset and re-configured. 2 browsers have been tried. Calls to technicians only resulted in advising there is a problem with the modem? (if the modem can ping a remote pc and see a homepage that has not been cached surely the modem is ok?)

There are twenty or thirty sites I visit regularly.

Recently I've been having some problems. Some sites I can visit like normal, but some sites I can't. I get "cannot find server" errors.

I cannot visit 9/10 websites on the internet because of this.

I have run Search & Destroy, Spyware Doctor, HouseCall, HijackThis, and the virus scanner on pcpitstop.com. I've run some of those in Safe Mode as well.

I cannot ping a website with cmd, but if someone else gives me the ip for a site url I can't visit, and i put the ip in the address bar, it will work like normal.

I've tried using IE and FireFox. I'm currently running FireFox (on XP) because I'm concerned about the security of IE during this problem.

I've done a system restore to before the problem but it didn't help.

There are three computers in my house, two of them are affected, one isn't. So I don't think this is an ISP issue, but I could be mistaken.

Is anyone out there familiar with this problem?

Keep in mind that any links or such you provide me I will most likely not be able to follow, because the page likely won't load. If you suggest I download something please provide a direct link to the zip/exe file.

Thanks in advance.

Hi me again hoggin the threads lol. I notice quite often than when I'm looking at a page, any page it goes freeze, off and back on again, but within a split second, it seems to be happening more often also. It is more annoying than anything, but when I'm downloading stuff from soulseek it causes me to lose connection and whatever is downloading, it then goes back to something 74 in line, so it is a right pain. I'm wondering if the modem might have something to do with it as sometimes as well as the rdy & the sync lights being on continuous, all the others sometimes are flickering on and off like christmas tree lights especially the usb light. It might not even be connected to the screen problem but I've no idea what to do to stop my page freezing and going even if it is in a micro second, though last night everything just froze for about 2 minutes, which was really doing my head in. I'm running XP and NTL Broadband 1mg.

A:How to convert cgi pages into html pages

cgi is the script behind the scenes and the html is the result. If you don't want any of the functionality the scripts provide just cut them from the page. If it is active content HTML alom will not cut it and you will have to use something server side like ASP, PHP, ColdFusion, etc in place of the cgi

Scanning a physical document for digital storage requires scanning of the document, which is considerably quicker if two sides are scanned together.

Is there some freeware program (if possible running on Windows) to deskew and separate the two pages automatically for the whole created file (pdf, djvu, tiff...), creating an ordered document with a single scanned page per page (or at least a file with the odd pages and a file with the even pages). It is somehow more complicated than using a script of Autohotkey, since not all scanned pages are exactly located at the same position, and therefore the parameters of a page to be splitted do not necessarily apply to all other pages.

Thanks in advance for the information.

Hello chums

A question of how I lay out data entry forms has arisen...

Hi cutsomer wants to use tabbed forms so each section of a single data entry process is 'contained' in a tabbed page, the entire group of pages pertaining to a single recordset.

So good so far but one particular page needs to hold a lot more data entry than the other pages (lots of pulldowns, radios, text etc).

I've been trying to add a new 'tabbed pageset' to sit within an existing page to split that existing page into more manageable chunks. A bit like a folder within a folder if you will.

Sadly, no matter how I try, while I can add (say) a three page 'tabbed pageset' to an existing page, the new tabbed pageset also shows up on all other existing pages.

So I 'cut' the new pageset, select the page I want to put it onto and paste it, but it still shows up as if it belongs to all pages. Erk!

Is there a way to do this that is foolproof or is this a no-go?

I've attached a couple of hi-quality screen shots showing what I'm trying to do, how it seems ok, but not really... You'll get the picture (sorry bout the pun).

Hope my gibberish makes sense!

If you have the latest go back to the previous set of drivers. Post back your findings.

When they type in my machine's name into the address bar, it says they don't have permission to access. i don't have any firewalls up that i'm aware of, and i've looked to see if i have any anti-virus software with firewall built in but i don't. i've disabled windows firewall so i'm not sure what's goin on. this happens on wired and wireless. any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Am getting this really annoying pop up

Sounds like you have a virus or a rootkit, try TDSSKILLER (Google it) - Also try Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit, both are free and very effective. The way to find out if you have this, is to reboot, open no programs, then open your Task Manager and look fir Instances of IE that are running, these will show up in "Details" because they are hidden. Something latches on to your IE and it runs in the background.

These usually occur when you are on one of those Download websites, like Billionuploads, Dropfiles, sendfiles, etc. You will get a popup that says your Flash is out of date (it isn't), and it you keep clicking on the page it installs some nasty garbage. Sometimes all it takes is one click.

You may also want to run your regular Antivirus, but rootkits like this don't show up in those scans.

Hi there guys n gals,
I am starting to get those annoying full screen ads for holidays, betting sites, mobile phone deals etc. I was plagued by these 2 months ago and ran COMBO-FIX which got rid of them all completely- one very small problem with that program was I had to locate a file and move it to the windows folder which was no biggy.
Now after having my computer back from a repair-a software rebuild I think they said, These Full screen ads are appearing more often and I have to click the X to close the screen. I ran the new COMBO-FIX again but this time itdoesny seem to have done the trick. I think it was malware I had. I am running Norton Internet Security 2008 on Windows XP Media Center Edition. After a full scan it finds no malware or spyware-well one cookie!
Is there any other way to stop these ads getting through to my computer.
Thank-you in advance,
 

A:annoying ads.

Welcome to TSG

There was probably some malware leftover because combofix will not remove everything. That's why you need to leave combofix the experts.
You need delete your current copy of Combofix by going here
Go to Start ---> Run ---> Type ComboFix /u and press Enter.

Ok lets download a fresh copy of combofix.
Download Combofix from any of the links below, and save it to your desktop. For information regarding this download, please visit this webpage: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

Link 1
Link 2
Link 3
**Note: It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**

--------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Close any open browsers.

2. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
When finished, it will produce a report for you.
Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt" along with a new HijackThis log for further review.
Note:
Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall
