It started acting strange then rebooted and windows had a bunch of 0s and 1s.

Please be more specific and more detailed so I have an idea of what's going on...

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here or Here

Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
  • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.(See Extra Note)
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and Paste the entire report in your next reply along with a fresh HijackThis log.
Extra Note:
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove,you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts,click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process, if asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.

Thank you screen317,

Sorry for my lack of detail. As I rebooted my PC windows would not run properly so I had to choose the option, use last settings that worked. As I did this windows booted up and my desktop background was binary 0s and 1s. Along with a icon that said windows firewall was disabled. A strange anti-virus scanner began to scan, I did not have this anti-virus scanner before hand. Along with the 0s and 1s in my desktop wall paper, there was a message that said my computer was infected. So I proceeded to reformat my PC. I hope this was not a bad choice.


Here is my Malwarebytes log:

Well since you reformatted, the infection is gone. The MBAM scan confirms that...

I will soon recommend programs to keep you secure in the future. To see what you need, please run this scan:

Download my Security Check from here or here.
  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
  • A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.

Hi Profs,


Go ahead and delete SecurityCheck.exe.

Your version of Adobe Reader is out of date. Uninstall Adobe Reader 6.0 from Add or Remove Programs, then download and install the latest version from here.


Now that your computer seems to be in proper working order, please take the following steps to help prevent infection in the future:

1) It is vital that you have a firewall. The one that comes with Windows XP is not sufficient in that it only checks incoming data. I recommend selecting one of the following free firewalls. Be sure to only install one.

Kerio
Comodo
Outpost

2) Download and install Spybot-Search & Destroy, which has great features (specifically Immunization and TeaTimer) that help prevent malware from getting on your computer. Also a great scanner for weekly checks of the health of your system.

3) Download and install Javacool's SpywareBlaster, which will prevent malware from being installed on your computer. A tutorial on it can be found here.

4) Download and install IE-Spyad, which will place over 5000 'bad' sites on your Internet Explorer Restricted List. A tutorial on it can be found here.

5) Make sure your programs are up to date! Older versions may contain security risks. To find out what programs need to be updated, please run Secunia's Software Inspector.

6) Go to Windows Update frequently to get all of the latest updates (security or otherwise) for Windows.

7) WOT, Web of Trust, warns you about risky websites that try to scam visitors, deliver malware or send spam. Protect your computer against online threats by using WOT as your front-line layer of protection when browsing or searching in unfamiliar territory. WOT's color-coded icons show you ratings for 21 million websites, helping you avoid the dangerous sites:
  • Green to go
  • Yellow for caution
  • Red to stop
WOT has an addon available for both Firefox and IE.

8) Be sure to update your Antivirus and Antispyware programs often!


Finally, please also take the time to read Tony Klein's excellent article on: So How Did I Get Infected in the First Place?
