Sorry, but that's a backdoor trojan, and not a easy one to remove. You can try to get rid of it with infomation from this site as they have the removal infor. and is pretty much the same as others,or if running XP or Vista try to go back to before this thing got installed to see if that helps. Once it is in, pc owners are doing a full recovery to get it clean.

This trojan steals your information and passwords and is dangerous.

Do not panic, this could be an infection... Turn off your Comp.
Boot up to the safemode with Networking, Try if you could Run Updates to the Maccafee..
then scan your Computer From Normal mode...
Remove all the infections.
Your computer should do just fine.

Deactivating accounts


While Facebook can make you accessible to friends and family, it may also make you fear for your privacy online.
Giving out your personal information on a site like Facebook can make you a target for identity thieves.
While you can certainly toggle your privacy settings to adjust how you share your info, you can also deactivate and delete your account so your information is no longer available.
The process can be cumbersome, but it will help you cancel your Facebook account completely.

Sign into your Facebook account normally, then click "Account" and choose "Account Settings" from the drop down menu.
Scroll to the bottom of the Account Settings page and choose "Deactivate," which is the last option available.
This will bring you to a new screen where you may send messages to your friends to let them know you're leaving Facebook.

Click the circle beside the reason you're deactivating your account, which is required.
You can choose from reasons like a temporary leave, having privacy concerns or receiving too much communication with Facebook.
You may also type added notes in the provided field.
You can also decide whether you'd still like emails from Facebook in the future.
When you're ready, click "Confirm."
Sign into Facebook and navigate to the "Delete My Account" page (See Below) if you want to remove your account and information completely from Facebook's files.
https://www.facebook.com/help/contact.php?show_form=delete_account
While deactivated, you'll still be able to sign into your account for administrative purposes and reactivate your account.
A deactivated account will retain all information, photos and notes, but remove them from sight of other users.
Deleting your account will remove your account and information completely from the site.
Send a message via the "Delete My Account" page to let Customer Service you'd like your account removed completely.

Virus Guide: 11 things you should know


What is a computer virus --> Computer viruses are small software programs that are designed to spread from one computer to another and to interfere with computer operation.
A virus might corrupt or delete data on your computer, use your e-mail program to spread itself to other computers, or even erase everything on your hard disk.
Computer viruses are often spread by attachments in e-mail messages or instant messaging messages. That is why it is essential that you never open e-mail attachments unless you know who it's from and you are expecting it.
Viruses can be disguised as attachments of funny images, greeting cards, or audio and video files.
Computer viruses also spread through downloads on the Internet. They can be hidden in illicit software or other files or programs you might download.
To help avoid computer viruses, it's essential that you keep your computer current with the latest updates and antivirus tools, stay informed about recent threats, run your computer as a standard user (not as administrator), and that you follow a few basic rules when you surf the Internet, download files, and open attachments.
Once a virus is on your computer, its type or the method it used to get there is not as important as removing it and preventing further infection.

keylogger is a type of computer virus that monitors and records the keystrokes on your computer, then relays that information back to a third party. It can reveal your personal information and be especially dangerous if you purchase products online, use online banking or do other similarly sensitive tasks. The key to stopping a keylogger is catching it before it has a chance to log any sensitive information on your computer. Use a well thought out strategy and some basic software tools.

Open your Task Manager by right-clicking on the taskbar and selecting the Task Manager option. Look through the list of computer processes on the Processes tab. If there are suspicious processes that you don't recognize, select them and click the End Process button. Your goal here is to do your best to stop the keylogger so that it can't collect any personal information from your computer. If you can't decipher which process it is in the task manager, you can start an on-screen keyboard so that you can type in commands for your computer without having your keystrokes recorded by the keylogger. Launch the on-screen keyboard on Windows XP by clicking on the Start button, going to "All Programs," then to "Accessories," "Accessibility" and then on the "On-Screen Keyboard" option. In Windows Vista or Windows 7, click the Start button and search for "Ease of Access Center." Open this program and choose the option to launch the on-screen keyboard. Use this keyboard to type in all commands throughout the rest of this process. Use an anti-virus program to thoroughly scan your computer. If you do not have an anti-virus program, use a free online virus scanner from a company like Trend Micro, which offers a free online virus scanner (you can also use an online scanner from another anti-virus company if you wish). When you scan your computer, be sure you perform a full system scan and that you remove any infections you find. Use an anti-malware program to scan your computer. Download a free anti-malware program such as Spybot - Search & Destroy or Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. http://corbitek-antimalware.soft32.com/free-download Free reliable antimalware solution with realtime protection and automatic update http://spybot-search-destroy.soft32.com/ Freeware detect and remove a multitude of adware files and modules. http://malwarebytes-anti-malware.soft32.com/ Free and easy-to-use, simple, and effective anti-malware application. Install one of these programs and run a complete system scan on your machine, much like you did with the anti-virus scanner. Remove any infections you find. Restart your computer and scan it again with an anti-virus and anti-malware scanner. If infections that were previously found and removed are no longer present, you can safely assume you have stopped the keylogger that was on your computer.

When surfing, this ANtivirus 2009 alert came on and can't get rid of it. I've also gotten a green screen pop up informing me I have a SPYWARE.MONTER. What can I do? ...


Hey tjchan92,

Unless you personally installed the "AntiVirus2009" program or this other application, what you may be encountering are either misleading plug-in applications or your computer may currently have spyware installed. Generally, one of the best ways to determine what these programs are is to run a system scan using the full version of an anti-virus/spyware program such as Norton AntiVirus or McAfee VirusScan. Should you choose to do so, you’ll want to make sure you’re using the latest virus and spyware definitions available since new threats surface all the time.

Please keep in mind that I only mention Norton & McAfee as examples. These are by no means the only anti-virus/spyware programs available, and are simply among the most easily-recognizable brands available through many major retailers.

Alternatively, you may be able to minimize how often these windows appear by adjusting your internet settings. Doing so will typically block pop-up windows and banner ads from websites you visit, and can often be done by changing your Internet Explorer privacy setting to "Medium-High" or "High” through the “Tools” menu.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.
