Possible really bad spyware!!!

Hey fellas my comp is trippin out. My mouse moves around by itself, when i open up my web browser (fire fox, IE), it starts to go wacky. When my comp is loading I see "lucallbackproxy" 4 of them loading on my comp??? What the hell is that? I did google it and I read that it's a spyware deeply inbeeded into my comp. I have 2 spyware, spysweeper, zone alram. So what needs to be done to get rid of it??? Do i have to reformat? I have a program called window washer, would that help? I just don't want to erase anything important. Well any help would be great. :evil:

    I would give Adaware and Spybot-Search & Destroy a go, as well as Microsoft's Anti-Spyware. Install them, update them, then run all 3(seperately). If they don't catch it, then you're most likely looking at a reformat/reinstall. It sounds
    like a nasty one, and lets hope you can get rid of it. GL :)

    I have adware lavasoft pro version, spysweeper, zonelabs. I ran all of them but for some reason I dont know if it's helping. Ran hijackthis, but I really dotn know what to do or look for.
  3. Keep in mind that if you intentionally installed certain spyware packages, they may not show up as spyware. Like "Hotbar", for example, that comes packaged with certain "free" smiley-face and wallpaper packages.

    I had just such a thing happen to a client once. I ran every spyware killer known to me, and it found nothing, even tho I knew Hotbar was installed.

    So, in other words, also check out, under Control Panel, "Add or Remove Programs" and look for anything weird there. Go to your Start button --> Run --> and type in msconfig, and check out the Startup tab to see if anything is auto-loading on startup.

    From there, use a good anti-virus package like Norton and scan your computer. Most current versions find viruses and spyware.

    If you join the "hijackthis" forums, you can post your scan results, and people on there will help analyze your results. :wink:

    Here's a post recommending how to post your results.

  5. Hi TVFreak

    The following links say "lucallbackproxy" is not spyware but part of Symantec Live Update and is used by Norton products.

    http://www.processlibrary.com/directory/files/LuCallbackProxy/
    http://www.programchecker.com/file/18868.aspx
    http://www.superadblocker.com/definition/lucallbackproxy/

    Some forums suggest re-installing LiveUpdate to fix the problem, the following link will do this:

    http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/sharedtech.nsf/docid/2003092610290513?Open&src=bar_sch_nam&docid=1999092114074613&nsf=sharedtech.nsf&view=d3c44a1678bd8f45852566aa005902cb&dtype=&prod=&ver=&osv=&osv_lvl=&seg=ag

    Other forums however do suggest it could be spyware. If the re-installing LiveUpdate didn't fix your problem I suggest you Google "lucallbackproxy spyware" and read the many forum posts.

    Good Luck!
  6. try a program called A Squared, there is a free version, works well. i use it as well as spy bot search & destroy, adaware, xofspy, & spyware blaster. its a pain to reformat. but back up anyway just in case.

    we're on the boat.
    my pc too.it's sending lots of mail to addresses i don't even know.
    it's just that i have norton antivirus 2006..that's y i know it's sending..

    because my norton is blocking it.

    really messy. and it slows down my pc.
  8. Thanks fellas. Yea someone told me that the lucallbackproxy is part of symantec. Thanks.
  9. and hopefully , i'm not infected with the worm these guys are saying :

    http://www.bullguard.com/forum/10/W32SinnakaAmm---Please-help-me_24830.html

    and symantec said this is the solution :
    http://searchg.symantec.com/search?q=W32.Sinnaka.A%40mm&context=hho&src=sea&output=xml_no_dtd&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&client=symc_en_US&proxystylesheet=symc_en_US&site=symc_en_US

    . kinda hard thing to do.

    i guess. format and re-installing is simplier.

    save for the softwares to be re-intalled :(
