Need help with fil's computer

  1. Hey, could someone check my logs to see if I need to remove anything else? Seems to be working fine now, but this is my FIL's computer so the dialer and malware could've been on there a long time and ruined things I can't find.

    That computer is infected with RANDEX.E virus. It is an IRC Trojan horse gives remote access to your computer using IRC.

    It also appears that more than one antivirus programme is being used at the same time. Trend and AVG. This is not recommended and can cause serious conflicts. Uninstall one antivirus programme asap.

    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.

    Regards Howard :)
