Pop-ups never stop

Hello

The computer seams to be running fine.

I uninstalled Windows Defender about a month ago, but you know Microsoft

If you had to chose between Macafree or Nortons Anti-Virus which would you chose?

That looks good! :D

 

For Antivirus, I would choose KAV or Nod32 if using a paid AV. AVG or Avast for free. KAV's protection is superior but sometimes doesn't play nice on some systems.

 

Some final cleanup and prevention recomendations follow.

 

You can go ahead and delete any special tools we used (SmitRem, SmitfraudFix, ComboFix, etc). They won't serve a future purpose and are replaced with updated versions frequently, so the copies you have are probably already out of date and no need to keep them.

 

Do a disk cleanup. Go to Start > Run and type in the box: Cleanmgr

Wait while Windows scans your system for files to delete.

Make sure these 3 are checkmarked and press *ok* to delete them.

 

Temporary Files

Temporary Internet Files

Recycle Bin

 

Now that your PC is clean, make sure all programs are running properly and then you'll need to reset your restore point in Windows XP.......why?

 

One of the best features of Windows ME or XP is the System Restore option, however if a malware infects a computer with this operating system it can be backed up in the System Restore folder. Therefore, clearing the restore points is necessary after malware removal.

 

To reset your restore points, please note that you will need to log into your computer with an account which has full administrator access. You will know if the account has administrator access because you will be able to see the System Restore tab. If the tab is missing, you are logged in under a limited account.

 

(winXP)

 

1. Turn off System Restore.

Go to Start and right-click on *My Computer*.

Click Properties.

Click the System Restore tab.

Put a Checkmark in the box next to "Turn off System Restore".

Click Apply, and then click OK.

 

2. Reboot.

 

3. Turn ON System Restore.

Go to Start and right-click on *My Computer*.

Click Properties.

Click the System Restore tab.

Remove the checkmark next to "Turn off System Restore".

Click Apply, and then click OK.

 

How to Turn On and Turn Off System Restore in Windows XP

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...kb;en-us;310405

......................

I can't stress enough the importance of having your Windows critical Security Updates. Most malware today uses exploits on unpatched systems to creep onto your system without your even doing anything but visiting an infected webpage!!

 

Watch what you download, be careful where you surf, and don't trust attachments or even links in email and Instant messages. Even if they come from a buddy, that buddy could be the one infected and it is the virus sending that link from his account. You click on it thinking he is trusted, and *boom* you're infected.

Many "Phishing" attempts are made by cleverly crafted email to look like it is coming from an "official" source (like Microsoft, or your bank, or some other provider). Don't click on links in those. Go directly to the site instead and navigate the menus - don't trust email you think came from a "safe source" unless you are expecting it! There is more in the link I will provide below, but those are the choice avenues of infection these days.

 

A word about shared computers and networks.

Share Your PC

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/s...hare/intro.mspx

Not all users need to have Admin Accounts. It is much safer to have most of your users on a shared system running as Limited User accounts. That way, if there is "an accident", it will only affect one user's account and not the entire system.

 

 

Next, I highly recommend you get some extra protection to prevent future infections. Here are some things you can do and some free programs to help :).

How do I prevent Browser Hijacks and Spyware?

http://www.dslreports.com/faq/13620

 

I'm happy to see you have SP2 installed. That will address numerous security issues in your Operating System and IE

Make sure that you keep your Operating System and IE updated with the latest Critical Security Updates from Microsoft...they usually come out once a month, on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. This is the first step in malware prevention, as many nasties now take advantage of new exploits and if not patched, you are vulnerable!

Windows Update

http://update.microsoft.com/microsoftupdate/

 

And see this link for instructions on how to configure the enhanced security features in SP2:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/...xp/iesecxp.mspx

 

I also highly recommend to get the free tool, Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) from Microsoft to analyze your PC security for prevention purposes.

 

MBSA Version 2.0 will scan for common system misconfigurations on Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 systems. This program will identify the system security weaknesses in your browser and operating system and provides easy instructions to correct them. This includes any missing critical Windows security updates, system vulnerabilities and your IE Browser security settings. Get the download here:

Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/...s/mbsahome.mspx

Choose MBSAsetup-EN.msi = (English Version) or the language appropriate for you.

You're welcome, Yourgo! Glad we could help :)

 

I'm very happy to hear you have learned a lot. Computer Security is important these days. Prevention takes a little time to learn, but in the long run it is the only ultimate solution. Prevention is key! :)

 

I'll go ahead and archive this topic in the "Resolved" Section (read only). If you should have any further issues, please feel free to start a new topic :)
