Hey - Sorry to have to bother everyone like this but could anyone send some useful advice in my direction!?
WORMSS sent me a link … Long Story … and when I had finished looking on the page a wonderful little Adult entertainment icon popped up on my dsektop along with a Sudoku Programme called Yazzle!!!
Now I have gotten rid of Yazzle, but this horrible Icon keeps cropping up on my desktop and d/c me from the internet! It only happens when I am online and randomly seems to rear its ugly head from time to time!!!
I have found the source files in C:\WINDOWS\Temp and a selection og win##.tmp.exe crop up along with some registry files sdl##.tmp.reg, I can delete them but they seem to keep reclycling themselves and re appearing leading to the icon to appear on my desktop!
I have tried looking for abnormalities in regedit and other programmes and on the task manager when they appear but I cant find anything!
I do have a adware/popup blocker/virus scanner but they are a little slow and only seem to find things 5 mins after they have popped up or just as they are reclclying themselves rather than finding the cause of the problem!!!
I have been deleting my temporary internet files as soon as I leave webpages to try and counter any input from the internet but this seems futile as well! I recently looked for more info on the icon itself as it appeared in D:\Temporary Internet Files and it came up as a file from certain ip addy / website which I then stuck into my popup blocker, it blocks it but stuff still gets through, and it also is derived from an *.exe file called universa.exe (no “L”) and I have also looked for info on this on a few forums (Mainly ones in Dutch ) and have not found a suitable solution!
Please Please Please Please PLEASE could someone send some info my way to help me get rid of this! Im sorry I am comming to you guys all pleady and needy but I am getting desperate as it seems to be getting worse and worse everyday and it is starting to debilitate my use of the computer :sigh:
