My computer has caught a virus. The characters “67yujhnm” are appearing in the address bar. When opening Word, spelling and grammar check start continuously.
I have seen in other questions posted that a log is necessary to determine the problem.
Can anyone help me??
Thanks

"PWSteal.Netsnake collects password information, creates its own mail message, and sends the information to the intruder. It copies itself to %windir%\Internat.exe. Please note that there is a legitimate Windows application called %windir%\system\Internat.exe. The Trojan file is 82.5 KB in length and uses a zip file icon.

Dumm idea, just try to reinstall Word, should probably work.

C:\WINNT\system32\ZipToA.exe

this seems to be a "new" addition since your other log.
if you did not add it to your system then re-run hijack and check mark it for removal.

On this you might want to check in your registry and see where/what this one is.

Nothing seems to be helping.
C:\WINNT\system32\ZipToA.exe is OK and o17 seems to be OK (with my limited knowledge)
Any other tip/suggestion to help me out of this misery??
Hi akoutsouris,

Are you sure it's a virus and not a keyboard malfunction?  Have you tried resetting your Home location in your browser?  Is it always the same string "67yujhnm" that shows up or does it change?

Good Vibes!

what is your system?


Seems in another post they are running a Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600, how about you?
https://www.experts-exchange.com/Applications/Viruses/Q_20854949.html


and what exactly is ZipToA.exe and did you load this between logs?

Commented:
Thanks all for the help. PC crashed, therefore it took me time to respond. Cleaned the keyboard, everything seems OK now. Thanks again for the efforts!!
