**//Virus check?

Post by hercule_p2001 on Fri Jul 10, 2009 4:31 am

Up until last week everything on my WinXP was fine. Then one day I observed that when I open the explorer, Internet Explorer starts on its own. Sometimes it shows dapcleaner and sometimes ircleaner in the url bar. some ttimes it opens a porn site. But always I get a warning that my PC is infected and needs a scan. I press CTRL+ALT+DEL to bring up the taskbar and close the IEXPLORE.exe. This happens whenever I open the windows explorer OR when I insert my USB drive. Any idea what is wrong and how can I get back to normal?

Thanks.

I just ran the Malwarebyte's anti-malware and it found 4 trojans. Quarantined. For now the problem seems to have gone. If it recurs, I'll first post the HJT log.
