I think I got something similar to a porn dialer. A few days ago I opened a file and suddenly I got a window that popped up advertising itself as anti-virus software. I closed the pop up window and I've had virus and trojans ever since.

I've downloaded spybot and ad aware, and they've removed dozens of viruses and trojans, but there's always more coming back. I then downloaded Kaspersky (and paid for the yearly subscript), and it found several things and deleted it. Still issues kept popping up.

I then downloaded Bit Defender total security, and got rid of the other 3 anti-viral programs, and it found a crap load of issues, fixed them, and yet I still have trojans and viruses trying to hack into my system. Nothing seems to be getting rid of the problem completely.

What's most frustrating is that I now seem to have issues with my browsers. I have Mozilla (version 2.?), Opera, and IE (version 7). I mainly use Mozilla. I can go to websites that I know off hand, but if I do any searches with Google, Yahoo, or any other search engine, I get no connection. It's as if my DSL turns off just for search engines. The same happens with Opera.

I sometimes check my connection speed with speakeasy.net, and I usually get about 3MB download and about 750KB upload. Since my google issues have come up the upload speed reads as an error, cannot be processed.

With Internet Explorer I CAN do google searches, and I also can check my connection speed with speakeasy, and the upload reads normally, about 750KB, no errors come up. However, when I use IE I get pop ups for porn sites.

I've also had rundll and wscntfy.exe running in the background. WLLoginProxy.exe, ctfmon.exe, and bdagent.exe are there too.

Can anyone help me out here?

It seems these viruses are still there, even if your Anti-Virus program tells you they aren't. I would suggest another Anti-Virus program and see if that fixes your problem.

AVG Free Edition is a very well-known program that works very well.
