HP ~ XP using IE & checked Google & FireFox, all no good.

Relocated & fully ran my MalWare (Paid member), :( 155 items found)

Cleaned cashe, & ran FULL malware, still :( getting the below...

When on husbands pc, all is normal at Ebay, here, etc... but when I use this pc, all of a sudden, there's about 2 to 3 banner ads running across Ebay, etc... of other company adds, then

Just hit a description I'd saved, all good, attempted "My Ebay" & was blocked with a big screen telling me I need to to download their special ????



EVEN just now, returned to edit in copied & pasted links above, and almost a full screen blocked my log in, but I x'd it out, so I could sign it. Was here about 8 hrs ago to edit the above in, & even after tds & spybot attempts to clean up this mess, issues still happening.

Goes on to explain my IE is loading too slow. For the last couple of weeks, machines been getting slower & slower, lucky to get 5 items a day, do research etc...

PLUS my CAMEDIA picture editing program I use to edit my pictures has been shutting down a lot & it's REALLY annoying, given that those pictures has been all my evidence to get out of B.S. buyers trying to get something for nothing....

& Always getting "Error on Page" emblem & lable.

Nov 5, 5:25 pm ~ attempted to fix, , ran KSS Kapensky ??? Then ran Mbam & OTL, maybe no in that order with directions from help Sept 2010 post, more cleaning, so added the pic I've been getting. **** IN ADDITION *** My CD/DVD isn't working, has the dreaded lil yellow triangle (HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4247 ~~~ HP Laptop about 5-6yrs old).

Nov 6, 2013 ~~~ WWW. junk above apears to be gone, kept running malware & spyware stuff, went to malware program that u all suggest, last yr purchased the $24 pkg. plus side was things like the above, if a hack, etc... figure that's their job to tend. About 2am this morn, noticed the above was NOT popping up above what ever I opened.

:( TRAY APP box & tifmicon.dll on Flash Media Icon install error boxes WILL NOT leave my desk top :(
& my CD/DVD doens't work, I can't repair...

Hi Penelope,

Let's see what I can do to help. First of all please read the following:

  • I am a volunteer. I do have a family, a career, and other endeavors just as you do that may prevent immediate responses that meet your schedule. Your patience and understanding will be greatly appreciated.
  • First of all, the procedures we are about to perform are specific to your problem and should only be used on this specific computer.
  • Do not make any changes to your computer that include installing/uninstalling programs, deleting files, modifying the registry, nor running scanners or tools of any kind unless specifically requested by me.
  • Please read ALL instructions I provide carefully and perform the steps fully and in the order they are given.
  • If things appear to be better, let me know. Just because the symptoms no longer exist as before, does not mean that you are clean.
  • Continue to read and follow my instructions until I tell you that your machine is clean.
  • If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to ask before performing the task that I ask of you, and please wait for my reply before you proceed.
  • Scanning with programs and reading the logs do take a fair amount of time, your patience will be necessary. :)

Now. I need to see the logs from the programs you ran above. Please post the logs for the following in your next reply:

Malwarebytes Antimalware

OTL provides an Extras.txt log when scanned the first time. Please include that as well.

Donna :)
