  1. Yep she has been downloading crap off of bitlord for years now, I found out cuz I put Wow on her comp and it detected the trojan, where Mcafee missed it how lame is that?

    I downloaded AVG from Cnet, but it kept giving me an error so I downloaded Avast instead and it's not nearly as good. Im going to make her reformat and reinstall windows. I might even reflash the BIOS to be real thourough.

    It was trojan-download.win32.variant or close to that.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.

    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

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

    This thread is for the use of Rayss523 only. Please don`t post your own virus/spyware problems in this thread. Instead, open a new thread in our security and the web forum.
