  1. When I start up my computer I get a message from Avast saying I have a virus VBS: Malware [Gen]. When I try to move to the chest in Avast it comes back next time I restart my computer, the location of the file is C:\DOCUME~1\Julio\LOCALS~1\Temp\1.reg I. I will appreciate your help.
    Thanks.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Click start/run and type services.msc into the run box and press the enter key.

    When the window appears, maximise it. Double click on the following services(if there) and select stop if they are running. Set the startup type to disabled. Click apply/ok for each service you disable.

    Windows Updater<This is nasty

    Close the services window.


    Open notepad and copy/paste the text in the code box below into it:
    NOTE* make sure to only highlight and copy what is inside the quote box nothing out side of it.
    Also ..

    Pay particular attention to this :-

    Make sure the word File:: is on the first line of the text file you save (no blank line above it, & no space in front of it)
    Code:


    Save this as CFScript.txt

    Then drag the CFScript.txt into ComboFix.exe as you see in the screenshot below.

    This will start ComboFix again. After reboot, (in case it asks to reboot), post the contents of Combofix.txt in your next reply together with a fresh HJT log.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Don`t worry that you couldn`t find the service. Just follow the rest of the instructions.

    Please note: in the quote box in my above post, the line that reads [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\runservic es] Doesn`t actually have a space inbetween the c and es of the word services.

    This is something to do with the way it`s copy and pasted.

    Regards Howard :)

    All clean.

    Delete the following folder.

    C:\qoobox

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how HERE.

    Now, turn system restore back on. This will have deleted all your old restore points and any nasties that are in them. It will also have created a new, clean restore point.


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

    Regards Howard :)
