Hi guys,

Recently I have experienced a severe problem due to an innocent IM from a friend who I would never suspect this from.

Screenname (AIM): hey check out This

Since he was a good friend of mine and who I have often exchanged such files with, I held no suspicion towards him. Thus I stupidly opened it and downloaded the content. As a result, my computer is now riduled with spyware, most of which are automatically repopulated after an Adware or Spybot S & D scan.

The actual site is http://homepage.hisp...epage/proto.com

And according to the said friend, he never actually sent that link. Can someone please help me remove the program downloaded that's making an awful a lot of spyware?

Thanks

P.S. sry for putting it under the wrong operating system, it seems that I will have to get use to the reduced speed of my computer for some time :mad:

hi rusty,

yes I have, yet, popups (in ie windows, i use firefox), from ads.revenu.net or similar sites persists to appear every second or so....

One of my friend says this is the result of an ie exploit, however, the problem did not appear until I downloaded the said file :tazz:

Thanks

If you haven't already, download HijackThis and then post the log in the Malware Removal Forum.
