aren't these programs the same as the ones that are used by Hitman Pro? I remember back when i was in highschool (2002-2008) and we had to run hitman pro every wednesday when we were the last to leave the computer room.
very good thanx
If you go to college, make sure to check the schools IT website. Most colleges have corporate strength computer protection software that you cannot buy/get normally at retail and they will give licenses out for their students/alumni for personal use.
This is a great guide, bookmarked and thank you for taking the time to do this!
I'm gonna be 100% honest here, using CCcleaner, Adaware and Spybot are unnecessary and no Computer shop will run them at all. To clean any computer start with Malware Bytes, do a quick scan if nothing is found, download and run combofix. If nothing is still found, it isn't a virus or spyware. Now if Malwarebytes finds something stop it, and run full scan. Once its cleaned it from a full scan, restart and run fullscan again. Once Malwarebytes finds nothing, then run combofix to make sure. These are the only 2 programs you need period to clean a computer.
Wow, good topic for discussion!! Ok, to get rid of Keyloggers first ensure you have a very Good Internet Security System/Anti-virus, secondly, you can download and run Malwarebyte on daily or weekly basis(ensure to update it first then run the scan),also, if you want to check if you have some fishy file running at the background, you can download and Run - Process Explorer, by Microsoft. The process which seems fishy, just note the file location, then delete the same either by going to that location in safe mode or from command prompt. Hope this helps!!??
Keep safe...browse safe!!

WOW, combofix!! Guy's use this very carefully as you might crash your PC or your internet connection can be messed up!! Ensure to first make a restore point then run the scan!!
MBAM ftw? it's like 89% effective and doesn't go OMNOMNOM GIMME ALL YOUR RESOURCES !!
First of all usually keyloggers are run undetected thats usually the point of it, so info from your bank passwords etc. can be sent to the hacker. Do not even waste your time do a clean install, once your system has been compromised its too late.
and keyloggers can not be uninstalled from ADD/REMOVE in Control Panel. A good keylogger runs in stealth and can only be uninstalled by using the correct key sequence which then prompts you for a password to get into the thing. Not to mention the key sequence will be something hard to figure out like "CTRL - SHIFT - SPACE - F" or something crazy like that. Don't bother trying to fingure that out. Just get an antivirus and let that remove it.
My account is still compromised.the entire client shut down. I reopened my client and logged in put in my Authenticator code, when it told me my Login Information was incorrect.
I believe that somewhere a virus was planted in my WoW game files, and when I am on, they can somehow close my client and when I reopen it, they send all the information directly to the hacker. which is how they can get around my authenticator... They are also able to block me from login on so they are uninterrupted. Ok, I'm at a loss done all of the things you have said and nothing.
I've gotten responses on one of the forums thats you are directed to go from, from here. They didn't notice anything and told me they aren't sure either. So, I uninstalled WoW and contacted blizz. They told me that deleting the program was a good idea that that's where its probably located. They suggested that it would be ok to reinstall WoW and try playing again. So I did. Problem is I was in the middle of playing today and resetting up and everything.... it happened again. WoW completely shut down I relogged in and incorrect pw or UN. Please help I don't know what else to do. I'm seriously considering giving up WoW because of this because it is so frustrating and I have been playing since Vanilla!
Thanks alot mate

Hijackthis link is in the OP, Combofix here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/combofix/
DO NOT try to fix this yourself with Combofix + Hijackthis. Both give general diagnostic information as well, so trying to fix stuff yourself there may destroy your entire PC to the point where reinstallation is the only solution..

Great guide thanks
I play on a Mac, I was reading that it is possible for the Mac to get keylogged.... do these programs work for mac or do I need to look into something different?
