I was at the website www.911tabs.com yesterday (5/17/2008) browning guitar tablatures when my free AVG anti-virus went off about 6 times. I moved everything it caught to the vault, but some things got through. I noticed that a couple people on these forums got the same virus yesterday with the exact same symptoms.

Symptoms: Desktop background changes to "your computer has several errors due to spyware activity" and more and a link directing me to of course to get the cure for their virus for $50+ .

The virus also diables task manager and going into the registry to change it back doens't work.

The virus also deletes all previously saved restore points so unless you have a restore point saved to disk, you are out of luck. I did not have one saved to disk but am going to make one now.

I also got the bugs crawling on the desktop background once on boot up.

Here is the weird one, even in MS Safe Mode and with all startup programs disabled, there is a yellow triangle that runs in the bottom right taskbar directing me to the website above for the cure. Of course for money. I thought that wasn't even possible in safe mode to have another program come up and run.

With some due diligence running msconfig and looking at processes and services etc. I found a few suspcious files. One was clrssn.exe which I was able to delete in safe mode. There was a qttask in the system32 that I thought was trying to hide under the same name used by a MS file. A third one xwusuhzh I cannot delete, not even in safe mode!!!! I think that is the one giving me the residual problems. Deleting the other files did help..no bugs on the desktop and a LOT fewer popups. The xwusuhzh file was on the hijack this registry, but deleting it and running the scan again and it's right back. Here is my current hijack this log:

I was able to fix all the rest of the problems. The file xwusuhzh is DEFINITELY the culprit. Rename this file to anything else. I renamed mine to suckthis. I just happened to be in safe mode when I did this. I rebooted with normal startup and the popups had completely stopped. Next do a search on the suckthis file or whatever you renamed your file to and delete it!!!
