Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages: Error 317 - Microsoft Internet Security Warning
Windows is corrupted with spyware virus.
You must patch your pc urgently to protect your system
Private info is accessed by ports:
-8080
-3128
You can patch your pc for free now and delete all spyware viruses
Click ok to choose and download free spyware removal using AntiSpy



My husbands pc seems to have been taken over by some sort of spyware.  He receives the above message which then redirects him to jimbutt.com/warning/danger.html which wants him to download some sort of program.  He is running McAfee Security suite and I also have spybot and Adaware6 neither of which are detecting anything amiss.  This Jimbutt stops him from accessing anything on the internet.  I have searched the web for an answer to this and if its on your forum my search came up negative so can anyone help me clear this.  I have tried downloading hijackthis but received a message from McAfee saying it was infected with a worm so it was deleted.

By all means don't click anything on that website.

Read this thread and then post a Hijack This log in this very thread.

Try downloading Stinger. It's a Trojan hunter that's designed by McAfee.

The following version of HijackThis is definitely clean and it's the latest version.

Download Attachment: hijackthis.zip 213.27 KB
Right click and select Save Target As... then rename the file as shown here and save.

Thanks for your response I am so grateful there are sites like this.  However 15 minutes before your message I had a thought it might only be a dialler and if I did system restore I might get rid of it.  I felt I had nothing to lose by trying and it appears to have worked.  I have been on the internet on his pc for 5 minutes or more without any messages and as they were happening every 90 secs I think its fixed.  What we cant work out is how it happened, he is so careful and never clicks on any messages without reading them first.  Any ideas?

By all means still post a HJT log, if only to double check that nothing is sitting on the system in a hidden form. If it is, we'll weed it out for you with extreme prejudice. That's what we're here for Grin

Thanks for everything I would like to close this topic now.  I am struggling with Hijack this for some reason his pc will not accept it and as the pc seems ok he is reluctant to let me near it with anything.  Funny how I am only needed when things go wrong!!

If you are using windows XP use system restore (start/programs/accessories/system tools/system restore).  This was the only way I could get rid of it.

How about posting your problems in a seperate thread??
That way you'll get a response, not by posting in other people's threads.

Please read the Forum Rules!!

Unfortunately, sometimes the System Restore points are infected, so using that isn't necessary the best course of action.
It's usually always best to manually get rid of the offending components. That way you're almost guaranteed that they'll stay away, unless they find a new route into the computer.

Recently, I got a virus on my laptop (Windows XP Professional) that popups up a message box saying that "Your windows is corrupted with spyware virus." and lists a few ports that it says the spyware virus accesses my computer on (8083, and one other...). Also, it installed about 20 icons on my desktop as shortcuts to [bleep] sites, and gambling sites, etc. In the task tray, next to the clock, I have a small red circle, with a white X in the middle of it, that ocassionally pops up messages saying "Attention! Desctop and homepage are authorized! Desctop icons and homepage have passed windows authentication with the following description: [One-day promotional offer on the best goods for random user Use desctop icons to get the best deals on things you need!]

I have tried about 5 spyware/virus removal tools and none of them have worked (SpyWare Doctor, CleanUp, AVG, Ad-Aware, Avant).

I am absolutely desperate to get this off my system. It is extremely annoying. If anyone can help, I would really appreciate it!
