  1. I think I got that Facebook AIM virus that says 'I want to put a picture of us on facebook, have a look' when you talk to somone who has the virus. I clicked it, not really thinking about it, and then realised it was a virus, but I think it was too late. Heres my hijack this log file. Can someone please help?

    Next please follow these instructions. Your version of Hijackthis is installed in wrong folder

    First please go to Start -> Control Panel -> Add/remove programs and uninstall Hijackthis.

    Highjackthis Instructions
    • Make sure you have the LATEST version of HJT (currently v2.0.2) it can be downloaded from HERE
    • Run the HijackThis Installer and it will automatically place HJT in C:\Program Files\TrendMicro\HijackThis\HijackThis.exe. Please don't change the directory.
    • After installing, the program launches automatically, select Scan now and save a log
    • After the scan is complete post your log.

    Do not attempt to fix any item yet.
    Do not add anything to the ignore list.
    Don't use the AnalyseThis button, its findings are dangerous if misinterpreted.

    I need you to follow all the steps HERE and then post back with the three requested logs as attachments
    • AVG antispyware
    • ComboFix
    • Hijackthis (step 15)

    Dont forget to make sure that AVG is set to quarantine the results, that HJT is the last step and to let us know the results of the antirootkit scan.

    Good luck and welcome to techspot.
