  1. I went through the steps explained here:
    http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic58138.html

    but I still seem to be infected.

    Peer Guardian is picking up the fact that my computer is trying to contact 66.230.164.71, an IP address associated with Trojan infested computers.

    AVG Antirootkit scan turned up nothing.

    Combofix, HJT, AVG Anti-Spyware logs attached.

    Thank you for your help.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    1. Please download The Avenger by Swandog46 from HERE. Save it to your Desktop and extract it.

    2. Download the attached avengerscript.txt and save it to your desktop

    Note: the above code was created specifically for this user. If you are not this user, do NOT follow these directions as they could damage the workings of your system.

    3. Now, start The Avenger program by double clicking on its icon on your desktop.

    Under "Script file to execute" choose "Load script from file".
    Now click on the folder icon which will open a new window titled "open Script File"
    navigate to the file you have just downloaded, click on it and press open
    Now click on the Green Light to begin execution of the script
    Answer "Yes" twice when prompted.

    4. The Avenger will automatically do the following:

    It will Restart your computer. ( In cases where the code to execute contains "Drivers to Unload", The Avenger will actually restart your system twice.)
    On reboot, it will briefly open a black command window on your desktop, this is normal.
    After the restart, it creates a log file that should open with the results of Avenger’s actions. This log file will be located at C:\avenger.txt
    The Avenger will also have backed up all the files, etc., that you asked it to delete, and will have zipped them and moved the zip archives to C:\avenger\backup.zip.

    5. Please attach the content of c:\avenger.txt into your reply, as well as a fresh HJT log.

    Regards Howard :wave: wave:

    Run HJT with no other programmes open. Click the scan button. Have HJT fix the following, by placing a tick in the little box next to(if there).

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {518CA4F0-A1DD-41DE-B19A-0273D8C4C2B1} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\hgghf.dll (file missing)

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Other than the above inactive entry, your HJT log is clean.

    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.

    Give it a few days and if everything`s running ok after that, delete the Avenger backups.

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

    Regards Howard :)
