Backdoor.Tidserv!inf

Post by Sidedoor on 4th December 2008, 6:25 am

While browsing very common sites, I had a pop up that looked like, but did not state, a Windows Firewall (it was off) warning relative to "Spyware.ISpynow". Not thinking fast enough, I cliked on "Enable Protection". A couple of minutes later, the computer restared itself. The same popup appears every few minutes. I ran a NIS 2009 full scan which found "Backdoor.Tidserv!inf". It states manual removal required but when I click on the help button, the browser window will apperar for a second and close. Opening the home page results in a page that looks like Norton but does not state Norton. It warns of insecure browsing and provides 2 choices; continue or turn on protection. I have not clicked on either. I am able to get to sites listed on Favorites, but any effort to click to another page results in the browser closing. For example, I searched for HiJackthis on Yahoo and any attempt to go to the resulting sites will close the browser. I'm using our second desktop to access your site.
Where do I begin if I cannot use my browser???
Thanks for your help!!!

Hello.
Chances are you haven't solved it.
Killing Hijack This entries at startup will only stop the malware from launching at startup, but the malware is still on your machine.
