I am having the same problem, and for me the computer does work in safe mode. And it also works when I am on another account (ie. Administrator). What can I do, I really really really need to regain use of the other account!

Trojan -- White Screen of Internet Connection – Windows 7 – Problem & Solution

A Trojan Hijacked my Wifi Network connection and my LAN wired internet connection causing a white screen upon connection. I have resolved this problem after many hours of work and research. Hope this write-up helps you save time!

Initial symptoms
On computer boot WHITE SCREEN of death appeared. A puzzling internet message about the requested page being unable to load / retry option visible.

But the white screen had no tool bars, no options, would not minimize, no right click functions. The windows key made the main windows bar appear but I could not switch to any other screens or programs, they would open behind the white screen.

Accidently, I discovered that if I booted with the wifi antenna OFF I had a functional computer but if I turned on the Wifi Adapter I IMMEDIATELY got the white screen. I did not have to open a browser, this white screen happen automatically when the computer had ANY internet connection – included LAN – wired Cat-5 connection.

The white screen had the name Conteneur ActiveX in the miniature version but not the main screen.

I also found that if I manually set my DNS server to and second to the white screen changed to say that the site could not be found and showed a listing of suggested addresses and revealed the address as
and suggested alternative sites but I still had no control over the “white screen area” or anything else. Nothing released me from this misery except re-booting with no internet connection.

I could not download any additional scanners in this condition.

I finally discovered that the internet connection worked in Safe Mode (Hold F8 while machine powers up). So I downloaded and updated two tools in Safe mode
 Malwarebytes – DID NOT see a problem
 Spybot Search and Destroy - – DID NOT see a problem except some cookies.
Also ran these in full windows w/o internet connection again, nothing.
 Computer was being protected by McAfee but it had obviously missed this Trojan. Did not run this scan.

Finally a site recommended “Hitman Pro” which was listed on CNET, a source I trust. So again, in Safe Mode, I ran it. (Google “Hitman Pro” and I recommend the download from CNET, it free for 30 days and fully functional.)

It found 40 more cookies and BINGO found
qtqtxjns.exe (I suspect that is a random name for the exe file.)
and called it

win23:agent-APNT [trj]

So whatever win23.cryptor is – it is NASTY!! I could not find information on this white screen except people saying “bad video card” or “reinstall windows.”

Hitman PRO deleted the Trojan while still in Safe Mode, I booted with WiFi off and ran Hitman Pro – but it wanted internet so I nervous turned it on and wala it ran can found a clean system. Amazing, if I do say so myself! I have rebooted a couple of times now and still stable. Will test the system another couple of days to see if the virus is hiding and reappears… but so far so good!

The infected system was a:

Windows 7 HP Laptop Pavilion dv7-6b78us
Intel Wifi Link 1000 BGN is the network adapter.

Hope this helps you.

Really confused about the second to last posting, it seems to be a shortened link that passes money to the poster for you clicking the link.

would be better

Hitman pro is a good piece, however I think the concern is that you may have a rootkit. This was the reason for running rkill, tdsskiller, and then malwarebytes before a restart. By all means run the hitman pro.

On another note, if it was my call, I would base the router, and then reset it up with a pasword asap.

Opening the Windows in the safe mode probably will help you surf your computer system. I have read several manual solution which seemed all Greek to me since i am not a well perfect technician or a IT pro. I searched on the net and found this as a solution. You can try this out.

I was surfing and clicked on something and a screen came up saying that I needed to pay a fine because I was looking at porn. I was not. The system was locked and so I shut it down and unplugged the internet to get it to close. When I rebooted. It took a few seconds, but the white internet screen cam up like the others have talked about in previous posts. I have rebooted several times and each time I got less functionality. In the time that I did have. I was able to discern that it was the Conteneur Activex.

Now I can not get into anything on the system. And I do not have another profile other than the Admin- me. Safe mode is block out. Any suggestions.

1. Turn off Wi-Fi if you have a switch/button. Disconnect LAN cable.
2. Boot up computer.
3. Search for newest .exe files in the C:\users\ and delete them. Something like pmomrebcktfpodtfglyuew.exe.
4. Restart computer and turn on Wi-Fi, reconnect LAN cable. Should be fine now.
