    I want you to re-run OTL...

    * Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.
    * Under the Custom Scan box paste this in:

    %systemroot%\*. /mp /s
    %systemroot%\system32\*.dll /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\Tasks\*.job /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\system32\drivers\*.sys /lockedfiles

    * Click the Quick Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
    • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows: OTL.txt and Extras.txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
    • Please copy (Edit->Select All, Edit->Copy) the contents of these files, one at a time, and post them back here.

    Still not good :(

    Please download Sophos Anti-rootkit & save it to your desktop.

    • Disconnect from the Internet or physically unplug you Internet cable connection.
    • Clean out your temporary files.
    • Close all open programs, scheduling/updating tasks and background processes that might activate during the scan including the screensaver.
    • Temporarily disable your anti-virus and real-time anti-spyware protection.
    • After starting the scan, do not use the computer until the scan has completed.
    • When finished, re-enable your anti-virus/anti-malware (or reboot) and then you can reconnect to the Internet.

    • Double-click sar_15_sfx.exe to begin the installation, read the license agreement and click Accept.
    • Allow the default location of C:\Program Files\Sophos\Sophos Anti-Rootkit and click Install.
    • A message will appear "Sophos Anti-Rootkit was successfully installed. Click 'yes' to start it now". Click Yes.
    • Make sure the following are checked:
      • Running processes
      • Windows Registry
      • Local Hard Drives

    • Click Start scan.
    • Sophos Anti-Rootkit will scan the selected areas and display any suspicious files in the upper panel.
    • When the scan is complete, a pop-up screen will appear with "Rootkit Scan Results". Click OK to continue.
    • Click on the suspicious file to display more information about it in the lower panel which also includes whether the item is recommended for removal.
      • Files tagged as Removable: No are not marked for removal and cannot be removed.
      • Files tagged as Removable: Yes (clean up recommended) are marked for removal by default.
      • Files tagged as Removable: Yes (but clean up not recommended) are not marked for removal because Sophos did not recognize them. These files will require further investigation.

    • Select only items recommended for removal, then click "Clean up checked items". You will be asked to confirm, click Yes.
    • A pop up window will appear advising the cleanup will finish when you restart your computer. Click Restart Now.
    • After reboot, a dialog box displays the files you selected for removal and the action taken.
    • Click Empty list and then click Continue to re-scan your computer a second time to ensure everything was cleaned.
    • When done, go to Start > Run and type or copy/paste: %temp%\sarscan.log
    • This should open the log from the rootkit scan. Please post this log in your next reply. If you have a problem, you can find sarscan.log in C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Temp\

    Think I'm giving up...

    Well, I think I know when I've been beaten.

    I really want to thank you for all of your effort and input on this but I'm realizing that fixing this has already taken a lot longer than a clean install. This is one brutal virus to say the least.

    Again, my sincerest thanks...I'm going to concentrate my efforts on making sure this doesn't happen again. I just have to get this system running again.
