I was stupid and tried installing a video player from a porn site... some sort of codec virus. Now when I open EXPLORER, I constantly get popups telling me to download a program to remove it.

Here is my hijackthis log:

Hello dillinger817,

My name is Tal and I'll be helping you with your malware issues. I'm going over your logs now, and I will be back with instructions on how to proceed.

As I'm still in training, my replies to you have to be approved before posting. Please excuse any delays between replies.

Regards,

Hello dillinger817,

Before we proceed to clean your computer from malware, please remember the follow the steps exactly in the same order posted and as closely as possible! Please don't skip steps if you don't understand something or encounter an error - please report back and tell me what went wrong. Please, don't hesitate to ask questions! The only stupid question is the question that you don't ask :)

You have an offending Browser Helper Object, which is probably causing all the popups. We'll remove it now. You also have two antivirus products, which is a no-no and will cause major system slowdowns, especially upon detection of a virus.

Step 1 : Deleting entries with HijackThis

Please re-open HijackThis. Put a check next to the following entry:

O2 - BHO: Mp3 Video - {6FFE49B7-F475-4EAB-8E80-E5D74C4E8D5F} - C:\Windows\System32\VideoMP3.dll

Now, close all windows but HijackThis, including this one, and Windows Explorer windows (folders)! This is important, because we're dealing with a Browser Helper Object. The fix will not succeed if you don't close Internet Explorer. Once you've closed all windows, click Fix Checked. This should only take a few seconds.

Step 2 : Deleting offending file

You may want to print out or save the following step to Notepad, as you will not be able to view this topic later on, from Safe Mode.

Please restart your computer. Tap F8 continuously, until a menu shows up. Highlight Safe Mode using the arrow keys, and choose it using the Enter key. Safe Mode will now load. Note: It will take a few minutes for Safe Mode to load, please be patient while it's loading, even if it appears to be stuck.

Once Safe Mode has loaded, navigate to the following folder, and delete the following file (marked in bold):

C:\Windows\System32\VideoMP3.dll

Restart your computer. It will reboot automatically to normal mode.

Step 3 : Removing one anti virus product

You have two anti-virus products on your system - AVG7 and McAfee. This is not a good idea, since having two or more anti virus products not only causes major system slowdowns, but might bring false positives and other troubles. Let's uninstall one anti-virus product. Seeing that McAfee is a subscription product, you might want to keep it if you have an active subscription. If you don't, please uninstall it (Start > Control Panel > Add and Remove programs > McAfee), and reboot your computer. Do the same for AVG if you have an active McAfee subscription. Remember to restart your computer to ensure the anti virus you chose to uninstall is fully removed.

In your next reply, please include the following:
  • New HijackThis log;
  • A report on the status of the popups; e.g are they gone, the same, worse, etc.
Regards,

Tal.
