  1. Hey I'd pe really thankful if you guys helped me out with the following problem:

    I got Kaspersky 7, fully updated signatures.. it has detected:
    malware exploit.HTML.Iframe.FileDownload
    win32.runouce.b
    win32.virut.b
    win32.Funlove.4070
    IM-Worm.win32.Sohanad.gen

    yeah these are all, that the antivirus failed to delete or disinfect or quarantine. and also i cant delete some files especially the email files .eml format. also there is one more problem, the virus has created some .eml files itself also, lots of them. i cant even delete them manually.

    please tell what should i do. i dont wanna format my laptop.

    You need to have a read of this - If your system is infected. Read this before deciding whether to CLEAN or REFORMAT.

    Then if you should wish to proceed with cleaning your system you need to go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, Combofix, and AVG Antispyware logs as ATTACHMENTS into this thread, only after doing the above.
    We also need to know the result of Panda Antirootkit.

    I suggest you backup your important files from drive d, then format it.

    Then, reformat your c drive and reinstall.

    Hopefully, that`ll solve your problems.

    You could connect the drive to another computer, but there`s a risk of it infecting the other computer, depending exactly what infections may be present.

    Regards Howard :)
