Windows 7: Possible Virus Issues

Possible Virus Issues

I am having issues with Windows 7, and possible Virus. My PC starts randomly beeping at me, and then it starts talking about weight loss ads. In task manager there are any where from 8-12 iexplore.exe running, yet I have none open. I have run multiple virus scans in both normal and safe mode, and nothing. Any idea's? The only program I have running that may cause the issue is Incredimail.

Download Spybot (The home of Spybot-S&D!), update, and run a scan.

Sounds like spyware, which explains why you aren't detecting anything on your virus scans. Also, what anti virus have you scanned with?

If you end the process TREE of iexplorer (all of them), do they reopen?

I have always had success with Malwarebytes. Just last week I helped my cousin clean his laptop of a particularly nasty rogue "antivirus program" called System Security 2009. It disabled all of his real anti virus/anti spyware programs and shut down his firewall, all the while trying to sell him a $50 "cure" ... to get rid of the spyware and pop-ups it installed itself!

Just download and run the installer, and when it finishes tell it to "get the latest updates" and "run a quick scan". That works on most malware out there.

I have ran my Rogers anti-Virus(in safe mode as it doesn't work in normal mode) Kaspersky Anti-Virus 8, and a Norton online vurus and spyware scan.

When I try to end the Process tree, they all revocer, and in the background, you can see the "this tab has been recovered" pop up, yet there is no visible IE window open. I will try some of the programs you have suggested. See what happens.

My anti virus solution is to back up all important files and reinstall Win 7....It's the only way to be sure.

The ten minute installation time of Win 7 changes everything for me. You have no idea if those anti virus solutions will get everything or not and it's just not worth taking the risk.

What anti-virus are you running, and is it up to date? Have you tried to see if it does it when you boot into safe mode?

Download Avast Anti Virus and while installing it, it will give you an option to do a boot scan. Click yes and restart your computer. Avast AV will run a boot scan of the hard drive and the viruses should removed.
