    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    What did AVG Antispyware do with the C:\documents and Settings\All users\Application data\vc knob that web\manager license.exe file?

    You might want to copy and paste these instructions into a notepad file. Then you can have the file open in safe mode, so you can follow the instructions easier.

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how HERE.

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE.

    Go to add remove programmes in your control panel and uninstall anything to do with(if there).

    DaemonTools_WhenUSave_Installer

    Close control panel.

    Open your task manager, by holding down the ctrl and alt keys and pressing the delete key.

    Click on the processes tab and end process for(if there).

    DaemonTools_WhenUSave_Installer.exe
    PopSect.exe

    Close task manager.

    Run HJT with no other programmes open(except notepad). Click the scan button. Have HJT fix the following, by placing a tick in the little box next to(if there).

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [DaemonTools_WhenUSave_Installer] C:\Program Files\DaemonTools_WhenUSave_Installer\DaemonTools_WhenUSave_Installer.exe

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [COPY ABOUT] C:\DOCUME~1\USER\APPLIC~1\GREATM~1\PopSect.exe

    O9 - Extra button: Run IMVU - {d9288080-1baa-4bc4-9cf8-a92d743db949} - C:\Documents and Settings\USER\Start Menu\Programs\IMVU\Run IMVU.lnk (file missing)

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Locate and delete the following bold files and/or directories(if there).

    C:\Program Files\DaemonTools_WhenUSave_Installer<Delete the entire folder.
    C:\DOCUME~1\USER\APPLIC~1\GREATM~1<Delete the entire folder.

    Reboot into normal mode and rehide your protected OS files.

    Post a fresh HJT log as well as a combofix log and let me know what AVG Antispyware did with that file.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    The nasty entries are still in your HJT log, so let`s do the following.

    1. Please download The Avenger by Swandog46 from HERE. Save it to your Desktop and extract it.

    2. Download the attached avengerscript.txt and save it to your desktop

    Note: the above code was created specifically for this user. If you are not this user, do NOT follow these directions as they could damage the workings of your system.

    3. Now, start The Avenger program by double clicking on its icon on your desktop.

    Under "Script file to execute" choose "Load script from file".
    Now click on the folder icon which will open a new window titled "open Script File"
    navigate to the file you have just downloaded, click on it and press open
    Now click on the Green Light to begin execution of the script
    Answer "Yes" twice when prompted.

    4. The Avenger will automatically do the following:

    It will Restart your computer. ( In cases where the code to execute contains "Drivers to Unload", The Avenger will actually restart your system twice.)
    On reboot, it will briefly open a black command window on your desktop, this is normal.
    After the restart, it creates a log file that should open with the results of Avenger’s actions. This log file will be located at C:\avenger.txt
    The Avenger will also have backed up all the files, etc., that you asked it to delete, and will have zipped them and moved the zip archives to C:\avenger\backup.zip.

    5. Please attach the content of c:\avenger.txt into your reply, as well as a fresh HJT log.

    Regards Howard :)

    The svchost.exe files you have running on your system are legit and are important for the stable running of your system. Do not try and stop them from running.

    svchost.exe is only a virus if it`s not running from the C:\windows\system32 folder.
