ok thanks, in my instance, I did indeed have a rogue trojan in my system. After days of exausted effort I found it.

I havent gotten it since. So does that mean the spyware is not here? No, but I lean towards that conclusion. Why? Many, many more people would have stepped forward over the last month and a half, imo. Not only here, but in the network.

So what should we do about this?

This is what I did last Thursday night to find my trojan.

READ & RUN ME FIRST. Malware Removal Guide - MajorGeeks Support Forums

I did everything it said to do. After going into what windows you are using(I am still using xp}once I got to run malwarebytes scan, I found it. I think in my instance the rogue programs was in my registry, but could have been java based because I had my java uninstalled as requested. Also, I run both SAS and malwarebytes daily and neither one of them found it until java was uninstalled. I later installed the new version of Java.

I think the Rogue program hides itself as a real running program.

So try this...it takes time, but you may find it.

In the mean time, I want to know when you get the ad and how often. My instance it was only at MMA forum and I was getting it once a day.

Well I still am getting it, I ran my security program in safe mode and now my O.S. is acting funny, the security program found no issues but I know there must be one. The window as explained earlier opens some program that is trying to run a virus scan it allows me to close the window but i run Vista and it wants to save the window often times returning to the page, however I still have not located where this issue is coming from on my computer. I will follow the above instructions it seems I'm gong to have to call the computer manufacturer and have them assist me with getting the O.S. back to its original version, it appears as like Windows 2000 as opposed to the Vista theme???

I know what you are talking about as I have come across it before. Not on this site though. It is also called Scare ware since it scares people into clicking the link because they think they have a virus when they could actually be downloading a virus by clicking the link.

Another thing that will get you is some of them have a "close option" or an "x" inside of the window, but you have to make sure to click the "x" on the actual browser and not the one inside of the box or you will just open the ad...

There is a trojan out there that makes your browser go to another page.

Try going through the steps I posted if you want.

I ran in sage mode before doing the steps I posted. I found nothing as well, yet as you can see, it was there.

Okay. I own a high end professional computer and network repair business.

I have several clients that are MMA CRAZY and post here and other places.

THIS SITE HOSTS VIRUSES!!! PERIOD. Be them Ads, redirecting links or whatever, THIS SITE IS INFECTING PEOPLE. I have absolute proof and logs to prove it.

AND HERE IS THE SCARY PART-- NO ANTIVIRUS WILL CATCH THESE BEFORE THEY HAVE ALREADY INFECTED YOU IN SOME WAY. It may find part of it, but these are multi part infections. They are pretty nasty. 6-8 on my personal "you are f-ed" scale.

Explanation?:
2 very known clients of mine have been in with their computers about 4-5 times each to have this "Fake Antivirus ROOTKIT Virus" taken off of their computers that has come from THIS site. For those of you that do not know what a rootkit is, it takes ahold of your system and installs it's friends like KEYLOGGERS (verified in last repair) and other things. These are usually transmitted by ADS and POPUPS. Some of these are on timers and will not pop until you have been on the site for a while.

If this virus popped up on your screen, YOU ARE INFECTED. That is all it takes. It just has to pop up on your screen. Look down at your clock. Do you see a "shield" that wasn't there before? Everytime you restart your computer after that, it will get WORSE and invite more friends in...

Malwarebytes takes care of most of them but not this one. The only way I have been able to fully remove the virus (rootkit) is to backup files and reinstall. We have run everything from Combofix to malwarebytes to avast/avira/kaspersky and it will not remove all of it... Safe mode lets the programs run, but still will not get all of it. This is after months of dealing with this virus... plus with the KEYLOGGER portion, you really need to reload and change EVERY PASSWORD YOU HAVE!

Now you dont just want to "fix" a virus that installed a KEYLOGGER on your system?

Oh and chances are if they got a keylog, your bank accounts are now in jeopardy if you bank online. So are any of your passwords you use.

BOTTOM LINE, THIS SITE IS INFECTING PEOPLE WITH VIRUSES THAT TAKE ABOUT $100 TO REMOVE PROFESSIONALLY. AND I AM THE LEAST EXPENSIVE SHOP IN 100mi.

Ask one of my clients.... He caught it 4 times now and it is about $100-125 to reload the machine after each occurrance, his wife is PISSED...

Now I am out of here before I get the damn virus... peace!

You were willing to join the site to post one time, which is basically saying, "MMAF is infecting PC's"?

I'd be willing to bet my bank account that you're in some way, shape, or form, associated with a previously banned member on MMAF.

I've been here for a little while now, and haven't had so much as a hiccup from MMAF.

Neither have I. I haven't gotten anything threatening here.

Been posting here for a long time and I have never had a problem. I think you are sadly mistaken.
