Openme.exe

vbimport

#1

Ever since i had this computer built for me, whenever you turn it on and look into the open appliction dialog box (by hitting CTRL+ALT+DEL), anyway, it always shows this as not responding and i would have problems like accessing the start menu or menus in genral, closing things, etc. But after I would close poenme.exe the computer would start to work again. Anyway i did a little searching and this is what i came up with.

click here

it turns out that i think my compute has had a trojan for a long time.

Has anybody every had this problem??:confused:


#2

yes i downloaded this trojan off a filesharing network. dont remember what i did exactly but i think you have to fine explorer.exe and check it for openme attatched to it. search google and it will tell you how to remove it

I didn’t need google. Just booted in dos mode and did a del - command…

Oh, God, I thought all it was over, 'cos I had this prob back in April.

Do it like this :

Run -> Regedit -> press F3 -> in Find type openme.exe -> click Find Next …

Keep in mind that in every entry you’ll find ( like “Explorer.exe openme.exe” ) remove only the latter one, i.e. openme.exe
And before I forgot, the following link might be useful. I remember helping the owner w correcting his slight errors regarding that stuff. http://www.spywareinfo.com/hijacked2.html

Good luck !

Trojans, spyware, sheez – you’d think we would never see stuff like this.

I just fixed a friends pc that had over 1300 references to spyware dropins(Adaware was working overtime that day) 2 trojans and 6 different viruses. The computer when running crashed aboiut every 15 seconds or so, Now the machine is clean.

And another thing is to lock out ad sites altogether, by using a hosts file. go to http://k-lite.tk and look under supertrick.

Wow ! Kidding me ? That’s tooooo much !
Hasn’t your friend been aware about stuff like security and protection ?

She wasnt then, but she is highly aware of her computer and how many things “phone home”. It shocked the hell out of her.
Not to mention she had me fix the MS-outlook so nothing can run out of email.

Okay, here comes another one :wink:

" As you may know, when/if a worm virus gets into your computer it heads straight for your email address book, and sends itself to everyone in there, thus infecting all your friends and associates. This trick won’t keep the virus from getting into your computer, but it will stop it from using your address book to spread further, and it will alert you to the fact, that the worm has gotten into your system.
Here’s what you do: first, open your address book and click on “new contact” just as you would do if you were adding a new friend to your list of email addresses. In the window where you would type your friend’s first name, type in AAAAAAA. In the window below where it prompts you to enter the new email address, type in HYPERLINK "mailto:WormAlert@somewhere.com"WormAlert@somewhere.com ( or similar or whatever you prefer ).
Then complete everything by clicking add, enter, ok, etc.
Now, here’s what you’ve done and why it works: The “name” AAAAAAA will be placed at the top of your address book as entry #1. This will be where the worm will start in an effort to send itself to all your friends. But when it tries to send itself to AAAAAAA, it will be undeliverable because of the phony email address you entered (HYPERLINK “mailto:WormAlert@somewhere…com"WormAlert@somewhere…com). If the first attempt fails - which it will because of the phony address), the worm goes no further and your friends will not be infected.
Here’s the second great advantage of this method: If an email cannot be delivered, you will be notified of this in your InBox almost immediately.
If you ever get an email telling you that an email addressed to HYPERLINK "mailto:WormAlert@somewhere.com"WormAlert@somewhere.com could not be delivered, you know right away that
you have the worm virus in your system.
You can then take steps to get rid of it! If everybody you know does this then you needn’t ever worry about opening mail from friends.”

I think this was an internet ad thingy or something. But it didn’t really do any harm.

BoSkin, that is excellent advice. Really, what everyone needs is just install any freeware virus scanner and update it frequently!
