Virus/TrojanDropper/ IDK!!!!!???

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ok so this started yesterday and happened a bit today. I would search something on Google, click to go there and get redirected to some bull**** site. Would go back and would get redirected to another b.s. site.

I googled the potential problem and someone said its a Trojan dropper or some similar problem. I downloaded ad aware. Ran it once is supposedly removed the program. I restarted, ran it again. The problem was there but it supposedly caught it, so I restarted. I ran it a third time no threat was found. But since this third attempt there was a pop up in the middle of OCN which i am not used to seeing on this site! I looked up how to remove a Trojan dropper on ehow and did not find any of the processes listed, or any of the things it said to delete from my registry, or any of the files it said to delete. I was not in safe mode, so idk if this makes a difference.

I want to make sure my comp. is STD free!!! Any recommendations? Also how can i prevent this in the future.

I really don't know what is going on and have been pretty relaxed about computer security.

Note: I don't get mad easily but it pisses me off that some f**khead did this to my comp. What a dick!!! It really... "Grinds my Gears!"
:k ungfu:
Also, I am fine with references to other threads. I have run ad-aware about three times since the last reboot and it has found no threats.

Dang, your baby's got an STD? Looks like she's been sleeping around when you're not looking

On a more serious note...
What antivirus or firewall do you use?

1) Get Malwarebyte's Antimalware (google search). Download and install it, it is free. Then do a full scan and see what it finds (I expect it to find something).
2) Get Spybot Search and Destroy and do a full scan with that as well when Malwarebytes is done.

Like dklimitless said, Get Malwarebyte's do a FULL scan. I also recommend installing MSE (Microsoft Security Essential) but you don't have too.

Haha yea it IS my baby! At least it feels that way, and having someone mess with it really bugs me. Only I should get to do that! if anyone is gonna give my baby stds its gonna be me damnit!

ok I'm downloading it now. I already have Spybot search and destroy. It found nothing after several full scans.

Regarding antivirus or firewall... The stock windows firewall.

Regarding protection: Spybot search and destroy, ad-aware, and now antimalware.

Thanks for the help. Please excuse the typo's I have a final tomorrow and I want to get this under wraps so yes, i'm under a bit of a time crunch

now lets kick some ass!
:k ungfu:

P.S. props to the OCN community. Its always very active and helpful. Responses come quickly and I <3 OCN community for that.

I'll check out MSE as well. thanks

OCN is always glad to help

Let us know how it goes. From your current protection list , I see that those are primarily post-infection tools (Unless you are one of the few who keep Tea-Timer on in SD). Anyway, I suggest you get MSE and let that be your main antivirus (I use Bitdefender but hey, MSE is free and excellent so why not? lol)

You need to scan your hosts file for issues, I would suggest using hijack this to view it, and make sure you dont have any bogus entry's in it. - Also make sure you are not setup to connect to a proxy though your web browser.

I have seen both bogus hosts entries and proxy settings on the same computers, basically if your connected through a proxy everything you do on the internet is intercepted by the proxy and who ever is running it can view everything you have done / do through it.

If you feel like this is a bit above your skill level to checkout I would suggest having a local computer tech/ shop double check it to be sure.
