Brontok worm.

  1. Hi

    I am a housewife in South Africa - so not your average computer wiz and I need help. I seemed to have picked up the Brontok-worm and I can not get rid of it. I do not seem to be able to go into my registry - it reboots my computer. It does the same when I try to run programmes designed to detect and remove it. I also do not have the folders option in my explorer tools and every attempt to fix that ends up in my computer rebooting. It even does that when I try to gain information on google about the virus. I am at my wits end. Below is my hijackthis logfile (I tried following some of the instructions given to kerespup on this forum as he seemed to be suffering from the exact symptoms, but to no avail). Please let me know where I can post my hijackthis logfile
    Thank you

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    I have moved your thread to the correct forum and retitled it.

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

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
