Hi there!

Where can I find the best anti Malware/Anti Virus Forums for specific tech support with stubborn Malware? I joined one two days ago but I have not received a reply and my question is four pages back already so chances are I wont be getting a response. I just wanted to know from IT professionals out there which are the best forums for assistance.

Thanks
Stewart

See how you go with this

Download HijackThis and run it and then go to the site below to analyze it or post the log file here.
<br><br>
http://aumha.org/downloads/hijackthis.exe
<br><br>
HijackThis log file analysis
<br><br>
Hijack This opens you a possibility to find and fix nasty entries on your computer easier. Therefore it will scan special parts in the registry and on your harddisk and compare them with the default settings. If there is some abnormality detected on your computer HijackThis will save them into a logfile. In order to find out what entries are nasty and what are installed by the user, you need some background information.
<br><br>
A logfile is not so easy to analyze. Even for an advanced computer user. With the help of this automatic analyzer you are able to get some additional support. Just paste your complete logfile into the textbox at the bottom of this page. Due to a few misunderstandings, I just want to make it clear that this site provides only an online analysis, and not HijackThis the program.

You can also try this.<br>
Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, install it and update it and scan the PC with System Restore turned off, turn it back on later on when the PC is cleaned.
<br><br>
http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/malwarebytes/mbam-setup.exe
<br><br>
< added instructions for MBAM >
<br><br>

* Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.<br>
* At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.<br>
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.<br>
* Once the program has loaded, select Perform Quick Scan, then click Scan.<br>
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.<br>
* Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.<br>
<br>
I would keep scanning with it until it is clean by closing out and rebooting and running it again.
<br>
Just to be on the safe side when you finish do an online scan with Bitdefender.

Bleeping Computer

Very good advice from Jacky Howe.

In my opinion, the best of the free malware help sites is Bleeping Computer. They also cover other areas and have a number of helpful guides.
