Virus problem, Bman and Bman1
I've tried searching but no one has posted this. So I have an hp pavilion zd7000, and my brother got a virus on it. I have Norton Antivirus, Zone Alarm, and Ad-ware, but none of them seems to have gotten rid of the virus. I've reformatted twice already but only got rid of the Bman2 virus, there's still Bman and Bman1. Can anyone help me out, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.

Let's all ride viruses! Whoo! Ride'em like a bitch.
No offense to StopTazmo, but I really think that you should look into this at some official tech support forum...
BTW when you reformat, try to run the reformatting tool from a boot disk...
ehya... reformating means EVERYTHING is gone, which means you have the wrong definition of reformat, OR you're IP is logged and as soon as you re-install windows on your newly formated computer, then the virus is put back on.
Solution would be to burn ZoneAlarm or Comodo free firewalls and AVG or Avast free to a disk, completely reformat the drive (since you've done this anyway many times) and reinstall windows. When you do this, DO NOT HAVE YOUR NETWORK CABLE CONNECTED. If you have wireless, turn the card off in BIOS if you can, or disable it somehow (you might be able to turn the wireless router off, but it might kill your settings).
Now when windows is loaded up, pop the disk of installers in and install the security programs. Restart and make sure they are all loaded up and ready to go (might take multiple restarts and installs... ie ZA, restart, AVG, restart, etc.).
Now go ahead and try connecting to the internet. Hopefully you'll be protected from whatever it is that got you.
Avast has a boot time virus scan that catches a lot of crap, so you might want to give that a try regardless.
bman.exe is a process belonging to an advertising program by DealHelper.com. This process monitors your browsing habits and distributes the data back to the author's servers for analysis. This also prompts advertising popups. This process is a security risk and should be removed from your system.
go to start, run, and type 'msconfig' and press enter. Go through the startup items and see if you can find Bman.exe and disable it. After that, restart and check your processes (right click taskbar and start TaskManager, then click processes tab) to see if it started. If not, find the file on your computer and delete it.

Thanks for the help Volvogga, I just read your post and the second one was quicker so i did that and it worked. I thought it was a virus because when i scanned my computer with Norton Anti-Virus and ZoneAlarm they both said it was a virus but couldnt remove it. Anyway thanks.
official help forum... heehee. :P
