Possible Virus?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
*Let me first start off by saying MOD if you deem this thread to be in the wrong spot please move it. I wasn't exactly sure where to put it and thought it would fit in this category.*

Now to the issue.

Recently I've been seeing this weird Windows ME/95 bars at the top of Google Chrome every time I click. (Refer to picture 1.) It only seems to happen on Google Chrome and only after I click out of the window and then click back. It's a sudden flash, unless you click and hold it, which is how I took the screenshot. I've been ignoring it for quite sometime now (Probably 2-3 Weeks) only because I didn't think it was a major issue, but recently (Oct. 7, 2011) my Gmail account was logged in from an unknown location from India. (Gmail did not notify me of this issue until I got on tonight.) I've changed the password to anything that I see as a major threat just to be sure, but now I'm worried if I've got some sort of backdoor trojan or a keylogger of what ever it could be. I will run full scans of Norton 360 and MalwareBytes tomorrow. (If you know of any free scans that are better or scan different things please let me know, so I can also give it a try.) However I would definitely like to know what this little bar is.

You're not alone. My gmail password was somehow harvested too. I'm very careful and maintain a clean system so I don't know what method was used to nab me. Download and make yourself a Hirens Boot CD 14.0 and use the provided AV apps to scan your drive while offline.

You might find that if you're infected any scanners won't run.

Here are some online scanners.

http://housecall.trendmicro.com/uk/
http://www.eset.com/home/products/online-scanner
Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool
http://www.pandasecurity.com/activescan/index/

Also SuperAntiSpyware portable is worth a try

Also, download HiJackThis and post back here, or copy and paste the scan results here. HiJackThis is the best way to see any running malware. The results from the Hijackthis site are just a general guide, you can google the files highlighted and decide if they're safe or not. But post back if you're not sure and I will look at them.

@Hexusfx I am exactly the same way. I watch what I download and what websites I visit and etc. I have downloaded Hirens Boot CD 14.0 and will give it a try after Norton 360 and MalwareByes have been ran.

@keyboard_commando I have visted mulitple AV sites because most viruses and trojans will block you from visiting such sites. I am also running a scan as of right now, but I may give a try to those online scans.

To anyone wondering, I have already checked under Task Manager> Processes to check for an unknown or out of the ordinary process running, however I haven't caught anything that catches my eye.
