I was hit with a pretty strong virus.. please help

Post by Joey Jiggles on Sun Nov 22, 2009 7:54 pm

hey guys,

I was hit with a pretty bad virus. It wouldn't let me open anything up on my computer. It kept routing me to their webpage to buy their virus product. I restarted my computer and opened in SAFE MODE with Networking. I ran my malwarebytes and got it under control.. BUT, now my internet explorer doesn't work for some reason at all (Firefox does) AND I can not update my malwarebytes. It says error 732 (0,0). I sent that to malware and they said it was a busy server and give it time. It has been 2 days and I still can't. Here is my log:

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.41

Remove the Proxy setting in Internet Explorer and/or in FireFox.

    In Internet Explorer
  1. Tools Menu -> Internet Options -> Connections Tab ->Lan Settings > uncheck "use a proxy server" or reconfigure the Proxy server again in case you have set it previously.

    In Firefox
  1. Tools Menu -> Options... -> Advanced Tab -> Network Tab -> "Settings" under Connection > Choose "No Proxy"
  2. Click the apply button and restart that computer in normal mode.

Can you update MBAM?

Figures as much, this malware is setting proxy settings to stop tools updating, guess the author never learned about Koobface which is pretty much the same to this stuff, proxy + false alerts.
