  1. Can someone please tell me why PC Matic isn't catching this? I have gotten it twice on my own laptop and once on another laptop that PC Matic is supposed to be protecting. Also, how to make sure the malware is removed? I'm disappointed that PC Matic isn't protecting our machines from this.
  2. I went to a site from search and clicked on a music file. I saw a small flash at the side of my monitor like a very fast download. Next a voice came through my computer speakers and said that my computer had been compromised. I then found a pop up on my screen instructing me to call microsoft at the number on the screen. I did not touch anything but used the task manager to close the site and pop up. I use pcmatic Evergreen and also keep malwarebytes pro on my computer to run manually. I use windows firewall and supershield. I ran extensive scans but nothing turned up. My concer
  3. One of my computers has been hacked by something called Supreme AdBlocker. It pops up whenever I try to search for anything on the internet whether I use Firefox or Google Chrome. I used the Control Panel and removed this yesterday, but it is back. I have run a full PC-Matic scan, but nothing has been found. Does anyone know anything about this AND how to remove it for good?
  4. This has shown up twice on a Malwarebytes scan. Keeps coming back after I delete. What should I do, Am i missing something? Thanks
  5. I had a problem a few days ago and ran Avira. It came back with 91 viruses, cleared those out. Ran Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - It had hits, cleaned those out. Now my computer does not appear to like certain security settings but I might have just fixed that. The main issue that I am noticing now is that the process "dllhost.exe" is using a HUGE amount of system resources. As of right now between 11 and 46 on the task manager under CPU and the mem usage at 760,000 to 770,000 k. I tried to terminate the process and copy a new version of the file over to "reset" the program
  6. I could really use some help here. I can get on IE at least but can not download anything that could help my computer. It keeps saying that it is a virus and deletes it. For what reason, I did get to download Spybot and did a scan and it found a few viruses. The two I saw were Win32.Downloader.gen and W3i.IQ.fraud. At first the computer wouldn't even load, now it comes on can't get on google and it seems limited on IE. I tried to download dds to give a report but it won't let me. This is my moms computer and I am not sure what else to do here. Thank You so much for your help

  10. Hi! Help! I have a Dell Windows XP computer and recently I keep receiving a DLL bad image error message for just about every program on my computer which says something like "The application or DLL name.DLL is not a valid windows Image. Please check this against your installation diskette." I've run AVG and no threats appear. I did a full Malwarebytes scan and although it did remove some malware, it didn't fix the problem. I also tried to do a system restore but that didn't fix it either. I'm thinking about trying to do a clean install reinstallation of Windows but I know this is a lo
  11. Hey, I am new to this forum and like to stick around to learn more about various aspect in technology. However my first question and not the last one is my curiosity on restore softwares like Deep Freeze or Drive Vaccine. My question lies whether when a restore takes place does it remove the Virus or Malware from the system. Keep in mind, the restore point is in the same system as of the restore software. Any information will be great. Cheers

  15. Hello all What started out looking like a minor problem or annoyance. Has now become a major headache & looks like a major problem. I was surfing the net, at my usual places. Im using Firefox's newest browser, because I know its safer the IE. I use the Noscripts add on, as well as their popup blocker all the time. And at the time the original problem started. I was also using Nortons 360, along with Malwarebytes. My problem originally started with what seemed like a minor loss of internet connection. But then every few minutes or half hour or hour. I would once again be disconnected
  16. HI! My computer caught another virus or two. I was getting IE can not dispIay web page errors. I ran Avast (full scan) and it removed one threat. Since I had this same problem with the IE errors not to long ago, I was able to go back and read through my sessions with JonTom in the HJT forum. I ran an ESET scan and it found and removed "a variant of Win32/Toolbar.Widgi.Application". I am not getting as many IE errors now, but am still getting a few. I'm hoping someone can help me see if there are any lingering bad files left on my computer. Thanks to anyone who is willing to help me out.
  17. Hard drive recently crashed - folks at the pc store were nice enough to update my OS to Windows 7. Windows 7 has microsoft security essentials installed. On my previous platform I was running SpywareBlaster, AVG Antivirus, Spybot S&D, AdAware, and Malwarebytes. My question is should I have all these programs installed, or is it a bit excessive? Now that I have the microsoft security essentials installed, which ones should I have in addition? Are there any I'm missing from this list? Thanks!

  19. My computer can no longer detect and load into Windows Explorer my USB external hard drives (3 different manufacturers) when I insert the USB cables but can detect my USB flash drives (same manufacturer). These drives have lots of video footage and photographs I have shot. I use them all at this time of year each year and really need to be able to insert and remove them regularly over the next month. Really bad timing for this problem. The safely remove hardware icon appears on the taskbar but the drive does not appear in Windows Explorer. When I press the safely remove hardware b
