    Hi

    Important: Please read this thread HERE before you decide whether to clean or reformat your system.

    Should you decide to clean your computer, please go ahead to Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions and follow the steps given. Do follow all the instructions exactly. They will provide logs for analysis of your system so I will know how to instruct you to proceed.

    Thereafter, please post fresh HijackThis, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread. Do not copy and paste your logs if not it will be ignored and/or removed.

    Also, please let me know the results of the AVG Antirootkit scan


    Regards,
    Your friendly momok =)

    Hi,

    I would highly recommend that you still post the requested logs as very often, merely fixing entries in HijackThis is not enough to rid your system of the infection. The infections would very likely return. For a sure removal, please post the requested logs and I will guide you through the cleaning process.

    Hi,

    Please post the other 2 requested logs from ComboFix and AVG Anti Spyware. Your infection is not so easily fixed through HijackThis. I would need to see the other 2 logs. Thanks.

    Hi,

    Download the attached "Combofix-Do.txt" (from my attachment) and save it to the same folder as Combofix.
    Drag the Combofix-Do.txt over on to Combofix.exe and release.

    This will ask Combofix to execute the instructions within my file. Let Combofix run normally and do its job. Attach the resultant log in your reply.

    Hi,

    Your logs look clean now.

    Delete all files in AVG Antispyware Quarantine folder. (located in C:\Program Files\Grisoft\AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5\Quarantine)

    Turn off system restore (XP/ME only). Learn how to do that HERE.
    This will remove all the remaining nasties from your old restore points.

    After that turn system restore back on.
    This would have created a new safe and clean restore point for your system.

    Often times, an infection can occur again not due to the incompetence of programs, but because of user habits.
    May I recommend you to read this article.
    This can help to prevent future infections.

    Should you have any further problems, please post in this thread.


    Regards,
    Your friendly momok =)
