How Can I Manually Remove The Following 'Bugs' Pls

  Big L 266 20:57 31 Dec 2008

Hello.Despite my best efforts,I can only run all my security software in safe mode.If I run them in the usual way,they all self-terminate at some point in their scans. This started 11 days ago and is a real pain. Can you please tell me how I can manually remove the following:-

From Ad-aware.

All are from IP Addy and the host names as follows:-

Therealsearch.Com, Greg-Search.Com, Approvedlinks.Nom.VSE-Moe.Biz, Aifind.Info, Find4U.Net, I-Lookup.Com, IE-Search.Com and Itseasy.US.

From McAfee/Stopzilla.

All are adware,malware etc with the following names:-

CableRouting. Archiveviewsoftware, Apomgrh, Vundo.M, VirtualBouncer,Virtumonde, along with a further 59 un-named 'host file' entries.

It can three/four attempts to login but my browser has been hijacked.My computer often turns itself off and on and off etc and there have been a number of blue screens with various bits of information.

I am convinced once these 'bugs' have been swatted,my computer will be alright again. I don't know how long I'll be able to keep this connection open.

Your help,patience and kindness in this matter is very much appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

Can you try System Restore in Safe mode to restore your system back to at least two weeks ago, before this problem arose?

How many AV's are you running? and why not try without all the Utilities above. Just use one

"All are from IP Addy " - that is your loopback address and suggests you're using custom HOSTS file that will redirect the undesireable domain names to protect your PC, or one of your antivirus/antispyware suites has installed such a list and another AV/AS program is identifying them as infections or problems incorrectly.

Plenty to read;

Or you have an infection which has replaced the standard HOSTS file.
