Three weeks ago I got a new cell phone. In my search for a ring tone, WinFixer 2005 was downloaded and my system has been compromised ever since.

I run a graphic design business from my computer so am diligent about doing virus and spyware scans. I run Norton Internet Security (and in the past Norton AV and AVG) daily. Various spy/mal/adware scanners on a weekly basis (see sig for complete details). I use Windows Firewall and run my system through a router.

In the last three weeks I've probably run over 20 scans (some taking up to 12 hours because I have 400Gbs of HDs) both in Windows and in Safe Mode. I've turned System Restore off and run more scans, rebooting and turning it back on. I've read countless forums trying to sort things out and still I'm plagued by pop-up ads including WinFixer and the three applications errors below with nearly every move. When I open some applications I have to click the error messages away numerous times. One app caused the messages to appear over 300 times.

For a while I was getting a Windows warning telling me my system was at risk because I had no firewall but when I went into Windows Security Center, it was on. That problem has gone away (for now).

Because of all the problems I've been having, I purchased Norton Internet Security last week. It requests that I turn off Windows firewall, yet when I do, it remains on. When I ran a Spybot scan I had DisableNotify messages for MS AV but browsing some forum (could have been here) convinced me it was a false positive.

I don't give up easily but I really need some help it seems. Below are the various screenshots I mentioned above plus a HiJack This log.

Hi Jodi- and welcome to GeeksToGo! My name is Excal and I will be helping you

I don't see anything bad on your computer :tazz: I am hoping its something that we just can't see, but fearing it may be ahardware issue. Lets see what they scans say.


The Temp folders should be cleaned out periodically as installation programs and hijack programs leave a lot of junk there. Download CleanUp! (Alternate Link if the main link does not work) and install it. Please Do not run yet.



Reboot into safe mode.

Restart your computer and as soon as it starts booting up again continuously tap F8. A menu should come up where you will be given the option to enter Safe Mode.

open Hijackthis and do a scan. Please check off the following items:

O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Restrictions present
O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel present


click FIX CHECKED then close Hijackthis


Run CleanUp! and click on CleanUp! button. When it asks you if you want to logoff, click on Yes.

Open up and run Ewido:
  • Click on scanner
  • Click Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
  • During the scan when it ask if you want to clean the first file, put a check in the lower left corner of the box that says "Perform action on all infections" then choose clean and click OK
  • When the scan is finished, look at the bottom of the screen and click the Save report button.
  • Save the report to your desktop
Close Ewido


Reboot into normal mode and please run this online virus scan: ActiveScan - Save the results from the scan!


Please post the Active scan log, Ewido Log and a fresh HiJackThis log. Let me know how your computer is running.

Thank you for your patience Excal. I started following your instructions shortly after you posted them yesterday afternoon and just finished up 20 hours later. I ran the Panda Active Scan while I slept and got up at 6am to check on its progress only to find a blue screen, so had to start over again. My internet cable connection was up and down last night as well.

The first thing I would like to mention is that I get no Application (Memory could not read) Errors while in Safe Mode, in case that is significant to determining if I have a hardware problem or not.

I am still getting the occasional pop up ad but not nearly as bad as I previously did. My internet connection however is extremely slow and many pages will not load at all (nothing but a white screen, not even a 'page not found' message). It helps some when I disable the legions of spyware apps I've installed trying to rid myself of whatever is bugging my system, but it's still not optimum.

By the way, the Kaaza debris is left over from a few years ago when I was using the app. The Casalemedia cookies seems to keep coming back. There seems to be a hole in my security somewhere, I just can't figure out where.

Here are my test results.

You can delete these folders:

C:\Documents and Settings\Jodi\Favorites\Going Places
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
C:\Program Files\KaZaA Lite
F:\___Data1.05\Program Files\KaZaA Lite

I also want to check out these two files:

Excal,

Both file paths came up clean.

FYI: PKVolume is a small desktop volume control app that I've used for about 5 years.

I will delete the folders you listed.

I did a Security Status scan at the Symantec site to test the vulnerability of my system. I tested with Norton Internet Security turned on and with it turned off both times my Windows Firewall was turned off. My system passed every test.

Not only do I not get the Application Errors in Safe Mode (with internet access), it appears I don't get the pop up ads either.

Any other ideas?

Hey Jodi,


I don't think this is malware related and I am going to transfer you over to the good folks in the XP forum and let them have a look.

Thanks for your suggestions Excal.

I'm currently getting ready to run a Windows Memory Diagnostics from the Microsoft site. Though after looking at the instructions, it says in 1/3 of desktop cases, a memory chip is just loose, so I'm going to see if one or both of my modules just need to be reseated. This is quite likely because my computer has been shuffled around several times while setting up a new office. If that doesn't do the trick, I will run the Memory Diagnostics from a boot disk.

Good news! It appears the problem was solved by uninstalling most of the apps that I downloaded to rid myself of those pesky pop ups and malware. :-)

Just out of curiosity, I ran the MS Memory Diagnostics disk and it came out fine. I then opened my computer case and reseated everything, but the problem only got worse. I could only work in Safe Mode at that point. I rebooted and selected 'restore' from the boot menu. That got me back into normal mode but I was still getting the application errors, lots of them.

I'm trying to do client work while all of this is going on. I was having trouble with PowerPoint 2002 freezing during slide show view and had a presentation that was due tonight, so I just started uninstalling the various spyware apps (a2, Eiwido, SpyCatcher) that I downloaded to battle my pop up problem.

I then rebooted ... and came back into what appears to be a stable and happy system. We'll see how the rest of the evening goes.

Hi Jodi...

I'm glad you got your system stabalized...good work.

Just to make sure whatever may have caused it is gone...Empty the Temporary Internet Folder, Delete all the cookies, and empty the Prefetch folder...then empty the recycle bin. You next boot will be a bit slow while the prefetch folder is repopulated and you probably know about all the rest.

Just a suggestion...those nasty bugs will hide just about anywhere.
