Recently I’ve come-up with a Security Alert showing the message:
System detected virus activities. These may impact the performance of your computer. Please use antimalware software to cleane and protect your system from parasite programs.
Click this balloon to get all available software.
When I clicked on it a new window opened from anti-virus.com showing ANTIVERMINS. Another window poped-up showing that spyware.cyberlog-x has infected my PC.
I’ve already scanned with spybot search and destroy and adware-se programs. Please help me in this regard.
It sounds like you tried running a program that had a Virus attached to it. I got nailed by 'SpySheriff' for running a program from an 'illegitimate' source. What 'SpySheriff' (and it goes by MANY other names too) did sounds exactly like what it going on. You get a pop-up ballon in your system tray telling you to go down this Anti-Virus or Anti-Spyware solution (which all it does is 1. Infect you with more Spyware/Adware and 2. Wants to Force you to buy its product otherwise it will CONSTANTLY nag you or cause your PC to crash until you do).
Not only did I end up with SpySheriff, but a few other Worms and Trojans got installed as well (those programs decided to hide themselves).
The first thing I did was go to the Task Manager and started ending processes that I was unfamilar with. One of them stopped the ballon popup. I did a full system scan with:
1. AVG Free
2. AVG Anti-Spyware Free
3. A-Squared Free
Each program found something the other one missed... I also found that my homepage in IE was switched to load a program off my local C:\ drive instead of my normal home page (I suspect this was to 'reload' some of the crap that was initially on my PC).
And who knows what other malware, like Rootkits, may have been installed. At the end of the day I decided to delete my Operating System partition and restore an image I had made a month ago just to be on safe side.
If this is not something you're familar with...you may be better off reformatting your harddrive and starting over. If you don't feel that's necessary I'd highly advise you not to conduct any monetary transactions (i.e. use a credit card) until you're absolutely sure you system is clean....I'd also stay off Ebay or Paypal or you Bank's website until you know for certain you are clean.
I've fixed the problem of ANTIVERMINS. I've installed the SUPER antispyware trial version program. When i scanned the PC using it, i've found about 35 critical objects and removed them. So now i'm not getting the pop-up security alert message.
As for as the anti virus programs are concerned, i do have AVG . So the problem might be fixed by antispyware program.
