  1. Multiple virus/trojans reappearing. I was about to reformat, when I noticed my recovery partition had been infected with infostealer. Attached are latest sdfix, and hijack this logs. The combofix log has been reported as too large 240kb. I have also used super antispyware, malwarebytes, and norton.Thanks in advance.

    Incorrect HJT version installed or wrong folder
    • Please uninstall your current version of HJT (This can be done through Control Panel => add/remove programs icon => highlight HJT => select change/uninstall button)
    • The LATEST version of HJT (currently v2.0.0.2) can be downloaded from HERE
    • Run the HijackThis Installer and it will automatically place HJT in C:\Program Files\TrendMicro\HijackThis\HijackThis.exe. Please don't change the directory. If HijackThis is used from a temp folder it is in danger of being accidentally deleted by Disk Cleanup or similar tools.
    • After installing, the program launches automatically, select Scan now and save a log
    • After the scan is complete please post your log onto the forums in your next reply.


    Please run a fresh scan with the latest version

    You can zip or compress the combofix log to attach that

    That log is clean - can you compress the combofix log by right clicking it on the desktop - send to compressed folder then attach the zipped file here

    It appears you zipped up the shortcut icon to combofix instead of the log?

    Sorry, Blind Dragon (must drive you crazy...)
    Hopefully, I have attached the correct zip
