Free. download and install and update and scan.

MalwareBytes. Anti-Malware

http://www.download.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html?tag=mncol&cdlPid=10896905

Also a test to see about basic infections.

I've also seen where Ask.com can act like an infection and hijack from any other search engine preferences.

Anyone know how to help my sick computer?

You may have to do a reinstall of MalWareBytes to get it to work again, as per a post from someone, from a few weeks ago.

and look in your Add/remove programs for the program of Ask.com toolbar and uninstall it. If that is the possible reason for the search preferences blocking.

Thank you everyone for your help,

somehow I got google and igoogle working again! its been soo long! yay!

Now I have one more problem, my malaware bytes wont open or load, it just turns pale when i click on the desktop icon, i have uninstalled it and installe dit many times but to no avail.

I just ran a spyware doctor check and it says i have over 400 infections. I dont have money to purchase it unfortunately so it will not clean any of the infections found and malware is not working due to these infections most liekly.

Does anyone know what else i can try to clean these infections and search cookies and rogues?

Spyware Doctor free version that does remove 'Some' of infections.  Just uncheck the rest of the stuff and only download Spyware doctor.

The only thing I don't like about Google's programs is the 'Automatic updater' add on.  

And what I and others don't like about the full version(as opposed to Googles Starter Version) of Spyware Doctor, is that it does not remove for free what it finds. So it makes people buy and buy. Some call it a scam, since it mirrors the fake spyware scanners that magically pop up in your browser and then demand payment for the fake infections that they find.

Heres another free anti-malware scanner and cleaner.

So now my google is working, with a few glitches,

I have to reenter the url into my browser cause if i just click on it, it will direct me to some other sponsored site.

As for my anti-spyware, I am presently in anti-spyware hell and nothing is working.

my maleware bytes will ont open at all.

I downloaded www.superantispyware and then when i tried to load it, it said that google has encountered a problem and needs to close.

I have also tried to download combofix, and then when i try to run it, it says the publisher can not be verified and then closes the page on me.

The only thing that kinda worked was that spyware doctor showed me where my problems were but i will not try just spyware doctor without antivirus.

Thanks for the help so far, anyone know where I should go from here?

Well if you are good at finding things.

Here is HiJackThis.

http://free.antivirus.com/hijackthis/

It is a scanner that tells you what is running on your system. Two versions. One is an installer and the other is an executable.

Then you use this online scanner

http://www.hijackthis.de/

to tell you what each object found means.

Then you can search out the infected files.

Can you install Avast Anti-Virus? And scan with it.

http://avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html

Free also.

And also Ad-Aware free version.

http://lavasoft.com/single/trialpay.php

And SpyBot search and destroy.

http://www.safer-networking.org/en/mirrors/index.html

Hopefully one of them can get installed. And scanning. But you can also go into safe mode to maybe prevent the malware from running at startup.  

Start up Items are found in ,,,, Which is start, click run, type in  msconfig   , then click  startup and if you recognize any nasties, uncheck them. But be careful. Otherwise your system may not start if you uncheck the wrong thing.

Here is one that works real well.

For me it almost worked to good. It cleaned some of my links in my favorites on full strength cleaning.  :evil: Seriously try the Quick scan first. And read everything it suggests to rid of before clicking, theres no going back.  :grin2:

Nice little program. But did have one false/positive.  But the 30MB update for definitions hurts a bit, but only because their servers are not as fast as me. 

These virus's that block programs from launching tend to be hardcoded to the main stream type anti-malware programs. So for now this one slips on by.  :icon_thumleft:
