Windows 7: Odd behavior/Virus??

Odd behavior/Virus??

Recently, I have gone into my den to wakeup my computer only to find it already on. Vipre antivirus had one or two messages saying certain trojans were blocked.

Also, my clock/date/time were screwed up and set to 2016 (I saw this happen last week and wasn't sure what had caused it)

In my system startup via msconfig I found the following unrecognized entry and unchecked it:


I ran a full deep scan with Vipre only to find the trojan messages were still occurring so I elected to boot into safe mode and scan again. So far I'm not sure If I am still infected.

Some of the other symptoms were that both windows and Vipre could not update (error messages) and I was getting (and still am) the following odd screen:

Below is a summary from Vipre:

At times Vipre was telling me it was blocking a.exe then b.exe then c.exe and so on and so forth.

Anybody seen this before or have any advice? I've never really been infected before as I am a situationally aware computer user and have always kept my security up to par.

ya I know looks bad, but as a newly founded hobby and student of mild programming, I don't do that $hit anymore considering I now know what it takes to develop software. Bad thing is I NEVER delete anything so everything acquired over the past few years I have kept which apparently includes some malicious or infected software. I don't know where the xpkeygen came from though as I have always purchased windows. To me it's like using a hacked antivirus program?!?! How can you run an important component to your computer like that and trust it if it's been messed with itself?!

since the odd behavior, I ran 2 deep scans with Vipre (normal and safe mode) and the above results with Malware bytes came AFTER these 2 scans so I am starting to agree with your latter point and am thinking of purchasing ESET's NOD32. Prior to the Vipre trial I was trialing ESET and was gonna make a purchase decision between the two. I was rooting for Vipre but I think It's gonna be ESET.

Another set of tools you can use are the free AV boot CDs from the different AV vendors. Each has it's own strengths and weaknesses. I suggest running them while hardwired to your router, as wireless support is less than spectacular.

FREE Bootable AntiVirus Rescue CDs Download List

You can find CD ISOs from Kaspersky, FSecure, Avast, Avira, BitDefender, Panda, and others.

What a humungous nerd star, loading pirated programs, which you certainly haven't paid for, then using trojanised Keygens to authenticate them - and you wonder why you have infections? Then asking on a public forum! Are you for real? Sheesh...........

Yes I am. I didn't hide the fact and I think I explained myself clearly. The recent problems I am having have nothing to do with that keygen. It wasn't run and it has merely be sitting on my HD for some time. So you are patronizing me (and assuming) by indicating how unintelligent I am that I would actually have ran keygens and wondered why I am having problems. I have been running a squeaky clean computer for years.

But I am glad to know that you are a better person than me because yes I have scammed software in the past. As I stated I don't do that $hit anymore. If you want to contribute to the thread then pony up, otherwise please spare me on how pure your soul is and that you are great humanitarian. I don't feel that I need to prove that to you.
