    Default New spyware: Super Codec and also Protection Toolbar

    Hi all,

    I got nailed by something called Super Codec. It puts a few things on your computer and I have been diggind and still cant get it all off.

    Places a program called Super Codec in your program list.

    Has an annoying icon in the icon tray.

    It is associated with hxxp://www.virusbursters.com/?aff=321

    that are probably the people who made this to sell the software to remove it. I hate them.

    The little stinker I cant get out that is casuing the trouble looks like this:
    OMG, I just tried to send it to the shredder and the thing said I cant and even changed its file name right in front of my eyes.

    We are dealing with evil here. I need help to kill this thing.

    If you need more info please email me.

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    James

    Hi there.

    In response to your PM, bad codecs are released frequently.
    Moviecodec, tvcodec, watchfree, StrCodec, are some of the latest; all are malicious fake codecs.
    Many are at Domains registered with estdomains and hosted by malware-friendly Intercage.

    Please see:
    Warning: Infection via bad CODEC installs. VirusBurst etc...

    We have a self help topic:
    VirusBurst, SpywareStrike and other desktop type hijacks

    Or if you would like someone will take a look at logs and assist you in the removal of any malware that might be present on the System, please follow the procedure in this link:
    "BEFORE you POST" -Preliminary Steps and scanning with SPYBOT-S&D

    Then start your own thread in the malware forum:
    Malware Removal Forum

    Once you have posted, a helper will take a look at the logs as soon as available and give any further instructions necessary.

    Cheers.
