    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Go and read the Trojan Pakes and other nasties preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

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


    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Your system is infected with some real nasties.

    First, go HERE and follow the instructions for the ntsystem.exe removal.

    Then, make sure you run the four tools as outlined in this thread HERE. I.E vundofix smitfraudfix etc.

    Run AVG Antispyware, then post fresh HJT and AVG antispyware logs as attachments.

    Regards Howard :)

    Edit: I`ve just noticed that the first link I gave you isn`t working. This is due to the greatis.com site being down. Hopefully this will resolve itself shortly as you really need to follow the instructions there. In the mean time, you should follow the rest of the instructions.

    You still need to follow the instructions I gave you including posting a fresh HJT and AVG antispyware log. This is because your system had several infections.

    Without seeing the above logs, I can`t tell you if your system is clean or not.

    Regards Howard :)
