  1. Help! I just cannot get rid of the Cid virus. Tried what you have suggested but no luck so far. Can anyone help? I have attached a HJT scan. Many thanks...

    Hello stevie and welcome to TechSpot.

    It appears that you are infected with the lop trojan, which seems to be the source of nearly all the CiD popups.

    First, please download NoLop to your desktop from one of the links below...;dl=item16

    First close any other programs you have running as this will require a reboot
    Double click NoLop.exe to run it
    Now click the button labelled "Search and Destroy"
    <<your computer will now be scanned for infected files>>
    When scanning is finished you will be prompted to reboot only if infected, Click OK
    Now click the "REBOOT" Button.
    A Message should popup from NoLop.
    If not, double click the program again and it will finish Please Post the contents of C:\NoLop.log along with a fresh HJT log

    --If you receive an error, "mscomctl.ocx or one of its dependencies are not correctly registered," please download mscomctl.ocx to your system32 folder then rerun the program.--

    Now have HJT fix these entries by placing a check in the little box next to them (if there):

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = [http]

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Ford great win open] C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\barbmpegfordgreat\Proxy Store.exe

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [drivecast] C:\DOCUME~1\Steve\APPLIC~1\PHONEF~1\Regs Trans.exe

    O16 - DPF: {00B71CFB-6864-4346-A978-C0A14556272C} (Checkers Class) - [http]

    O16 - DPF: {2917297F-F02B-4B9D-81DF-494B6333150B} (Minesweeper Flags Class) - [http]

    O16 - DPF: {8E0D4DE5-3180-4024-A327-4DFAD1796A8D} (MessengerStatsClient Class) - [http]

    O16 - DPF: {BAE1D8DF-0B35-47E3-A1E7-EEB3FF2ECD19} (CPlayFirstddfotgControl Object) - [http]

    O16 - DPF: {D54160C3-DB7B-4534-9B65-190EE4A9C7F7} (SproutLauncherCtrl Class) - [http]

    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.

    Delete the following bold files and folders (if there):

    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\barbmpegfordgreat<--delete the entire folder

    C:\Documents and Settings\Steve\Application Data\PHONEF~1<--delete whatever folder starts with "phonef"

    Reboot into normal mode and rehide your protected files.

    Now go and read the Viruses/spyware/malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly, then post fresh HJT, ComboFix, and AVG Antispyware logs as attachments into this thread. Also post here the results of the AVG Antirootkit scan.

    Regards :)

    No problem mate. If you want to make sure that no other malware is hiding on your system, though, you should post the other log files. It's up to you.

    Regards :)

    Very well done kitty500cat ;)

    stevie: I advise you to post the requested logfiles, then we can check to make sure your system is clean.
