    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    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.

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial56.html

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial61.html

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial62.html

    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).

    vssms32.exe
    f1c56988.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).

    O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {CBCC61FA-0221-4ccc-B409-CEE865CACA3A} - (no file)

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [vssms32] C:\WINDOWS\system32\vssms32.exe

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [f1c56988.exe] C:\Documents and Settings\Max\Local Settings\Application Data\f1c56988.exe

    O9 - Extra button: Messenger - {FB5F1910-F110-11d2-BB9E-00C04F795683} - C:\Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs.exe (file missing)

    O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: Windows Messenger - {FB5F1910-F110-11d2-BB9E-00C04F795683} - C:\Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs.exe (file missing)

    O11 - Options group: [INTERNATIONAL] International*

    O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{B19CF7A2-C86F-4A26-8EA1-AA54EEE6A0CF}: NameServer = 212.67.120.148<Only fix this, if this doesn`t belong to your ISP.

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

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

    C:\Documents and Settings\Max\Local Settings\Application Data\f1c56988.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\vssms32.exe

    Run a full system scan with AVG and delete whatever it finds.

    Reboot into normal mode and turn system restore back on.

    Post a fresh HJT log and let me know how your system is running.

    Oh no, that`s not good.

    The only thing I can suggest at the moment, is you try doing a Windows repair as per this thread HERE.

    Regards Howard :(

    I've decided to do a reformat (needed to do one anyway) as after reapair it kept booting in safe mode and said that setup can not continue in safe mode. Thanks for your help anyway. I'm guessing this will get rid of the virus.

    Thanks

    Yes, a reformat should get rid of any viruses you have.

    If you have any further virus/spyware problems, please post in this thread.

    Regards Howard :)
