Ok, so usually i can get this stuff out myself... but this time i ran into alot of problems. I've tried ad-aware and mcaffee. But, once i think i get rid of all the adware.... and nothing looks to be popping up in processes... rundll32 pops up (2-4 instances of it).. the vx2 virus was in here not sure if it still is... but that rundll32... keeps downloading more and more stuff.

On internet start up.... a Umonitor error pops up... and also.... Vbouncer... over and over. I am not sure which adware keeps crashing my computer.... but it sounds like the hard drive powers down and then....... crash. But before that.. a lil box pops up on my computer... i know its adware cause thats the onlything downloading all this stuff... someone please help me out.... :tazz:

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log as a new topic in the Hijack This forum. It will get a better response there from the people most qualified to analyze logs.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide. Also see this post.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

You might as well do this too.

Download finditnt2000xp.zip.
1. Unzip the contents of finditnt2000xp.zip to a convenient location.
2. Navigate to the Find It NT-2K-XP folder and double-click on find.bat.
3. A command prompt will open and it will search your computer for malicious files.
4. Once it has finished a Notepad window will pop up with output.txt.
5. Copy the entire contents of output.txt into your next post.
