Please help!!!! My pc has been infected with A360 virus, and I cannot browse the internet since A360 pop-ups kept blocking my internet access. I run spybot search and destroy and spyware blaster. After completing the process and re-boot the system, the message box stating "cannot find dll32" showed. And once I browsed the web, WEBPAGE CANNOT BE DISPLAYED displayed the screen... eventhough I have an excellent wi-fi connection. Please advice what is the possible cause and how to resolve this problem.... Im using windows xp and wi-fi internet connection.

It would be good if you start a new thread for you.
Did avast detect the virus or not?

I suggest:

1. Clean your temporary files.
2. Schedule a boot time scanning with avast with archive scanning turned on. If avast does not detect it, you can try DrWeb CureIT! instead.
3. Use SUPERantispyware, MBAM or Spyware Terminator to scan for spywares and trojans. If any infection is detected, better and safer is send the file to Quarantine than to simple delete them.
4. Test your machine with anti-rootkit applications. I suggest avast! antirootkit or Trend Micro RootkitBuster.
5. Make a HijackThis log to post here or this analysis site. Or even submit the RunScanner log to to on-line analysis.
6. Disable System Restore and then reenable it again.
7. Immunize your system with SpywareBlaster.
8. Check if you have insecure applications with Secunia Software Inspector.

1. Follow my suggestions just right above.
2. It's better open a new thread for your specific trouble.
3. Try FlashDisinfector (search the forum or Google to find it).

I would suggest either removing or modifying your email address unless you particularly like spam. This is a publicly available web sithe so it could be harvested by a spambot.

Flash Drive Disinfector
Download Flash_Disinfector.exe by sUBs from >here< and save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click Flash_Disinfector.exe to run it and follow any prompts that may appear.
  • The utility may ask you to insert your flash drive and/or other removable drives including your mobile phone. Please do so and allow the utility to clean up those drives as well.
  • Wait until it has finished scanning and then exit the program.
  • Reboot your computer when done.
Note: Flash_Disinfector will create a hidden folder named autorun.inf in each partition and every USB drive plugged in when you ran it. Don't delete this folder...it will help protect your drives from future infection.

Thank You David. I was told about avast the free version by a family member. Was using mcafee which I got free as part of my broadband deal and what a joke that was. i thought i was protected but realised i was not. I cannot believe how good avast is  ;D

Looking for advice on a WinBlueSoft problem i seemed to have picked up...

Running the trial version of Avast 4.8 at the moment, but has not fixed my problem thus far. I may have made the mistake of uninstalling the WinBlueSoft software after I realized what it was. Even after, the pain in the ass desktop annoyances continue. Going to try the Boot Scan and hopefully this will kill it...?

Is there anything I can do if it doesn't?

Better would be starting your own thread for this trouble, rather than using an old one.

Vitro is a very dangerous file infector. Backup your files and data as soon as you can.
You will, probably, have to format your drive and even use fdisk (to overwrite partition data).
