  1. Hello,

    I was recently infected with this trojan when a member of my family opened an attachment in yahoo mail. I have completely followed the directions set forth in the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions post. Here are my logs. If you guys could help me, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    You might want to copy and paste these instructions into a notepad file. Then you can have the file open in safe mode, so you can follow the instructions easier.

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how here.>

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how here.>

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how here.>

    Go to add remove programmes in your control panel and uninstall anything to do with(if there).

    Video ActiveX Object

    Close control panel.

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

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Locate and delete the following bold files and/or directories(if there).

    Other than the above, your HJT log is clean.
