  1. Good afternoon I am following this thread http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic58138.html and have completed step 10 just wanted to start a thread for when I needed to post files I would already have a thread started. After going through the 10 steps I still cannot do any of the steps mentioned in the title of this post I will update this thread when scans are completed
    thanks redneck

    Run the programme and click the "Perform in-depth search." Allow AVG to complete the scan. The AVG scanner will give the "Rootkit path" Do not fix anything yet. Let me know what is found in your reply and I`ll instruct you on how to proceed.
    as instructed here is what was found waiting for your instructions
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\Kuk52.sys
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\symavc32.sys

    Run combofix as per the instructions in step 12. Post all the logs that you can that are asked for in the instructions and we can see what needs to be done.

    I found some nasties in your HJT log, please delete the following:

    R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - _{00A6FAF6-072E-44cf-8957-5838F569A31D} - (no file)

    O4 - Startup: PowerReg Scheduler.exe

    O16 - DPF: {B64F4A7C-97C9-11DA-8BDE-F66BAD1E3F3A} - download.cdn.winsoftware/files/installers/cab/WinAntiVirusPro2006Free Install.cab

    Rik will help you with the rest, because I don't really know how to work with ComboFix ;)

    I need you to run AVG antirootkit and let me know what it comes up with.
