Random Advertising commecials coming out of my wireless headset

Post by jduong22 on Mon 09 Jul 2012, 3:27 pm

First topic message reminder :

I downloaded Malwarebytes and did as instructed

download the app in safemode with networking,
run the scan etc..
show report
remove threats
reboot

but I'm still getting the random ads. I'm not using speakers, my only output is my world of warcraft wireless headset. This problem just started about a month now and after doing the above mention, I see that malwarebytes has block a threat svchost.exe.

I'm pretty much out of ways to get rid of this, I search all over online and many have this similar problem. When i got to msconfig, i see there is a application call winrscmde running when the random ads come on.

Excellent. As far as I can see, your computer is CLEAN.



====================

Time to uninstall used tools.

  • Go to Start > Run and type or copy/paste Combofix /uninstall (note the space before the "/").
  • Double click OTL.exe to run it again and click the CleanUp button.
  • If we used any other tools and they still remain on your desktop, please delete them manually.
  • TDSSKiller has created a folder: C:\TDSSKiller_Quarantine. Please delete that folder and its contents.

====================

Do you have any more questions or do you want to see my ALORTKYCC (Awesome List Or Recommendations To Keep Your Computer Clean)?

Hi Gabe,

Wanted to give you a big thank you for helping me clean my system. Yes I would love to see your awesome list or recommendations to keep my computer clean.


One question I have is this: After the whole cleaning process was done, everytime I launch internet explorer, a manage addon window pops up. Does it everytime and I'm not sure how to turn it off.

ehhhmm... neither do I. I am one of those users that avoids Internet Explorer like the plague.
Try and google your problem. You should not be the first to have it.

Allright! Here follows my ALORTKYCC (Awesome List Of Recommendations To Keep Your Computer Clean):

1) Keep your Windows up-to-date. Windows Autoupdate should be ON (see Start >> Control Panel >> Security Center). An alternative way (but more time-consuming) is to periodically visit [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. Hackers are looking every day for new security holes. Microsoft keeps patching them. You cannot fall behind in this race, it will make your system vulnerable.

2) For your average daily computer activities, use a limited/standard user account, not an administrator account. If you use Vista/WIN7 do not disable User Account Control (UAC). You would be amazed to know how much malware canīt touch you if you deny it admin rights. Create a separate password-protected administrator account that you use for admin activities, like (un)installing software.

3) Use a good antivirus. There are various free ones, you cannot go wrong with either of the following three:
  • Panda Cloud Antivirus. If you want your antivirus to be light on resources, I recommend Panda. Install without the toolbar.
  • Ad-Aware Free Internet Security has received great reviews from leading security analysts.
  • Avast! is a very complete antivirus, with modules like mailscanner and webshield.

4) If your computer has 1GB system memory or more, you should install a third party firewall, to replace the weak Windows Firewall. I recommend:
  • Comodo Firewall. Install the internet security suite, but without the antivirus and without the Hopsurf toolbar.
  • Online Armor. A very smart and user friendly firewall.
  • Outpost Firewall is another rocksolid choice.

Note: you should run only ONE antivirus and ONE firewall. Running multiples of either is bad, it will cause slowdowns and/or conflicts.

5) Miscellaneous advice:
  • Stay away from cracks and keygens (look [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] for the why). Get free software instead. Gizmo is an excellent source of freeware reviews.
  • Navigate safely. Google Chrome is the safest browser available. However, Mozilla Firefox can be made extremely safe with the NoScript addon. Internet Explorer (always use the last version) can be made a lot safer with Spywareblaster (manual here).
  • The WOT (Webs Of Trust) addon will help you to stay on reliable webpages.
  • WinPatrol alerts you when changes are made in vital system areas. Especially good on light systems not running a third party firewall.
  • Make sure you have ways to recuperate your operating system and vital other data if its gets frustrated by malware and/or other problems. A Windows setup CD and recent backups/disk images will be priceless, if you find yourself in an unexpected tight spot.

Finally: did we help you? [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]!
