A, I attempted to recover a CD key for a game I had but had lost the box\cdkey. Instantly after installation Avast and Spysweeper fired off left and right it was all I could do to fend off the attack. I disconnected from my wireless network by disabling my connection and began the long road to recovery. In total I have run Adaware, Avast, and spysweeper full scans and cleaned up and deleted what i could. I then went into safe mode and did the same thing and found many more and again I cleaned up and deleted what I could. I connected the problem to a program called ctpmon.exe I believe. There were two identical processes running, and i could not close. I then searched for anything on my comp with that name and tried to delete but came up with the rite protected or in use error message, I then discovered that by taking thing files and putting them in a new folder you can then move that folder and delete IT instead of the programs and it will allow you to delete. I was then able to turn off the Cptmon.exe. That is where I am left now,
1 during shut down, computer stops on "windows is shutting down" message and it just wont turn off
2 for only a minute or two after my computer is loaded up again i have Internet access.
a. The internet then comes up a unable to load page error message (in mozilla firefox)
3. when I attempt to disable the connection the wireless network properties menu will freeze in that window trying to perform that processes.
a. I have recently notices that there are a # of svchost.exe processes running, and when i attempt to disable the wireless one svchost.exe will jump to the top of my memory usage list and when I end task on it, the wireless network properties menu will kick back a failed connection menu and I am able to use the properties menu again.

I do believe that I have covered all that I can recall, I will be reposting again with a list of all the processes that are running, but I had to post this message from another computer. I would really appreciate any help possible. Thanks

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
