Help - trojan horse removal

By jencck

  1. My problems popped up with liveupdate on Norton. It quit on me. Then I tried to go to and discovered I could not open their website. Eventually I discovered I couldn't open either. Most websites will open for me, but there are many that won't. I have done a manual update of my norton live update. I have downloaded and tried many of the spyware and antivirus software but the problem persists. Spydoctor, Spybot, AVG, Norton, Ad Aware, Ewido and now Hijack This. I have removed a lot of the registry keys and values which were identified as problems (new_drv.sys; inetdata). I confess to dumbly downloading a trojan horse a couple of weeks ago from a very deceptive email disguised as an american greetings card- but I wrongly assumed that Norton had caught it. Apparently not. :(
    The best clues to what is wrong I believe came from Spydr - and seekmo.

    Can anyone help me?? Please?? Hijackthis log attached.

    Hi jencck and welcome to techspot. =)

    Important: Please read this thread HERE before you decide whether to clean or reformat your system.

    Should you decide to clean your computer, please go ahead to Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions and follow the steps given. Do follow all the instructions exactly. They will provide logs for analysis of your system so I will know how to instruct you to proceed.

    Please remember to rename the HijackThis executable file to analyze.exe and save it in its own folder in C:\ not in a temporary folder.

    Then run HijackThis and fix these entries:

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {02478D38-C3F9-4efb-9B51-7695ECA05670} - (no file)
    O7 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System, DisableRegedit=1
    O16 - DPF: {1A595EDD-978A-48C7-B730-AF3B9CC64DAB} (DLManager Class) -

    Next, navigate in windows explorer manually and delete this file.

    Thereafter, please post fresh HijackThis, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread. Do not copy and paste your logs if not it will be ignored and/or removed.

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

    Your friendly momok =)
