    Please Could You Check My Log For Anything Amiss

    Sorry Momok, I had a panic spasm attack of typewriters brain block. I got a virus, scanned with panda,spybot,superantispyware,adaware,cwshredder and vundo. It found problems and cleaned them. I'd just like someone to check that I really am cleared.

    Hi,

    No worries. Your log looks clean to me. I wouldn't guarantee your system is clean though; there is a possibility that some nasties remain. If you wish to be sure, you can post a ComboFix log and an AVG antispyware log. (Both tools are downloadable from my signature)

    Regards,

    Hi,

    Your logs look clean now.

    1. Please download and run CCleaner via step 9 of the instructions HERE.

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

    3. 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.

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

    5. 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,
    momok =)
