  1. I had this tojan virus on my pc and came accoss: Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions on this site and did all the steps. It seemed to work but what do I do with the logs I have from HJT, VBG and adaware?

    I am new to this site, but have had luck so far. Thanks for your help!

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    If you`ve followed the instructions in that thread, you`ll know we require you to post the following log files as attachments, as well as the results of the Panda Antirootkit scan.

    They are all the log files we require.

    See HERE for instructions on how to post log files as attachments.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    thanks!

    I wasn't sure since that thread was closed. Here they are, I hope I did it right.

    The Panda Rootkit Scan came out clean.

    Which bit of of my last post didn`t you understand?

    I said and I quote.

    So why have you omitted the AVG Antispyware log and the Panda Antirootkit results and posted an Ad-Aware log?

    Unless you follow the instructions, It`s going to make it very hard to help you.

    1. Please download The Avenger by Swandog46 from HERE. Save it to your Desktop and extract it.

    2. Download the attached avengerscript.txt and save it to your desktop

    Note: the above code was created specifically for this user. If you are not this user, do NOT follow these directions as they could damage the workings of your system.

    3. Now, start The Avenger program by double clicking on its icon on your desktop.

    Under "Script file to execute" choose "Load script from file".
    Now click on the folder icon which will open a new window titled "open Script File"
    navigate to the file you have just downloaded, click on it and press open
    Now click on the Green Light to begin execution of the script
    Answer "Yes" twice when prompted.

    4. The Avenger will automatically do the following:

    It will Restart your computer. ( In cases where the code to execute contains "Drivers to Unload", The Avenger will actually restart your system twice.)
    On reboot, it will briefly open a black command window on your desktop, this is normal.
    After the restart, it creates a log file that should open with the results of Avenger’s actions. This log file will be located at C:\avenger.txt
    The Avenger will also have backed up all the files, etc., that you asked it to delete, and will have zipped them and moved the zip archives to C:\avenger\backup.zip.

    5. Please attach the content of c:\avenger.txt into your reply, as well as a fresh HJT, Combofix and AVG Antispyware log. Also please let me know the results of the Panda Antirootkit scan.

    Regards Howard :)

    Well..

    I beg your pardon Howard. I am quite new at this and have a small child on my lap. I must have selected a wrong item, and I did advise of the antiroot results. I have not booted my pc up until right before I logged in so I consider them fresh, however if that is not sufficient it will have to wait until tomorrow. Well, nevermind. I would rather start from scratch with my os since everything important is always backed up.

    I`m sorry, I had no wish to appear rude.

    If you`re sure you`d rather format, do the following.

    You need to do the following.

    Diconnect from the net and don`t reconnect, until you have your firewall software installed.

    1 Restart your computer and go to setup usually by pressing the F2 or delete key.

    2 Once you get into setup look for the boot menu and make sure you set it to boot from cd first followed by your hard drive.

    3 Put the Windows xp disk into your cd drive.

    4 Now save your settings and exit setup.

    5 While your computer is booting you will see a message that says "press any key to boot from cd" press any key.

    6 When the welcome to setup screen appears press enter and then press F8 to accept the Microsoft licence agreement.

    7 You will be prompted to repair an installation press the escape key.

    8 Now select the partition that you want to reformat and press the D key to delete it you will be asked to confirm that you want to delete the partition.

    9 Now press C to create a brand new partition you will be asked what size you want the partition to be in mega bytes. If you just press enter then the partition will be the maximum size that you can have. This is perfectly ok if you don`t want to create multiple partitions.

    10 You will now be asked to format the partition select the ntfs file sytem and do a full format.

    11 Once the format is complete setup will continue.

    Your computer will restart during the remaining setup again you will be asked to press any key to boot from cd DO NOT PRESS ANYTHING and setup will continue. Once the setup is complete and you are back in Windows remove the Windows cd from your cd drive.

    Install your firewall software and reconnect to the net. Install whatever drivers you need, then run Windows updates.

    Finally, install whatever programmes/software you want.

    Regards Howard :)
