  1. Could I get a little help from some one with the removal of Video Access ActiveX Object. I have the HJT Log attacted.

    I've been doing some digging around and I think I know what I need to to do, but I thought it would be a good I idea if I had some one look at my HJT Log.

    Thanks

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your running an outdated version of HijackThis. See this thread HERE.

    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.

    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.

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

    C:\Program Files\Video Access ActiveX Object<Delete the entire folder.

    Reboot into normal mode and rehide your protected OS files.

    Post a fresh HJT log and let me know if you`re still having any problems.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Your HJT log shows your system is infected with a nasty trojan.

    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.

    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

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

    Also, let me know the results of the AVG Antirootkit scan.

    Regards Howard :)
