Rootkit, Trojans Infection (8 Steps Done)

  1. Hi:

    My computer has been running kind of slow and yesterday email virus started popping up like crazy(lots of them). They wouldn't stop and I had to do a hard shutdown. I realized I was infected so I came here and ran through the 8 steps.

    I have rootkits and trojans. Attached are my 3 logs.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

    *** UPDATE ***

    I ran all the 8 steps as an Administrator, but when I log in as my standard user, my computer still goes CRAZY. Popups coming non-stop about emails being sent with viruses. The computer is unusable. I also have Symantec Antivirus installed and it says it detects HAcktool.rootkit and there was also a trojan listed, but the computer shut itself down and rebooted before I got to see more details about it.

    I am still very infected. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.....

    After reading around it appears I am infected with Proxy-Agent.aj or Spam-Mailbot. I have not been able to find any way to remove this after thoroughly searching online.
