IE infected?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
Internet Explorer has started to misbehave recently. although I don't
use it much, it still starts up in memory (shows in task manager). If I
close it from task manager it comes back within seconds. Also my
firewall shows that IE is trying to send emails every so often.

I have zonealarm installed and have scanned the pc a few times and
nothing has been reported. I even scanned the pc with stinger but
nothing was reported.

IE has had a couple of unpatched vulnerabilities crop up of late.
Perhaps you were among those bitten by it.

McAfee/AVERT Stinger is a limited "On Demand" scanner targeting only ~54
infectors.

The following Multi AV Scanning Tool is a Broad-spectrum scanning system.


Download MULTI_AV.EXE from the URL --
http://www.ik-cs.com/programs/virtools/Multi_AV.exe

To use this utility, perform the following...
Execute; Multi_AV.exe { Note: You must use the default folder C:\AV-CLS }
Choose; Unzip
Choose; Close

Execute; C:\AV-CLS\StartMenu.BAT
{ or Double-click on 'Start Menu' in C:\AV-CLS }

NOTE: You may have to disable your software FireWall or allow WGET.EXE to go
through your
FireWall to allow it to download the needed AV vendor related files.

C:\AV-CLS\StartMenu.BAT -- { or Double-click on 'Start Menu' in C:\AV-CLS}
This will bring up the initial menu of choices and should be executed in Normal
Mode.
This way all the components can be downloaded from each AV vendor's web site.
The choices are; Sophos, Trend, McAfee, Kaspersky, Exit this menu and Reboot the
PC.

You can choose to go to each menu item and just download the needed files or you
can
download the files and perform a scan in Normal Mode. Once you have downloaded
the files
needed for each scanner you want to use, you should reboot the PC into Safe Mode
[F8 key
during boot] and re-run the menu again and choose which scanner you want to run
in Safe
Mode.  It is suggested to run the scanners in both Safe Mode and Normal Mode.

When the menu is displayed hitting 'H' or 'h' will bring up a more comprehensive
PDF help
file.  http://www.ik-cs.com/multi-av.htm
