  1. Hi, I keep getting a pop-up everytime I boot my PC. AVG 8 is detecting Win32/Heur on c:\windows\system32\gasretyw0.dll. It seems the virus has disabled AVG's update manager. I've read previous posts similar to this virus so I took the liberty of running combofix and HJT and attach the log files. I've also downloaded but have not installed MBAM in case I need to follow same steps given by "Blind Dragon".

    Hoping to hear from the helpful guys soon. :)

    Need help...

    Hope to get some help from anyone soon. I need help cleaning this virus which does not involve reformatting my hard drive (again).

    Thanks!
