  1. Over the last couple of days my AVG has been picking up many viruses including the following:
    Trojan Horse Dialer.BZB
    Trojan Horse Dropper.Generic
    Trojan Horse Downloader.Generic2.CWC
    Trojan Horse Downloader.Generic2.CNB
    Trojan Horse Downloader.Istbar.4.P
    Trojan Horse Clicker.CGZ

    I've followed all the instructions on this forum and run the suggested spyware removal programs, but still seem to have problems.

    I've attached the hijackThis file.

    Many thanks in advance for your assistance.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Download the Pocket killbox programme from HERE. Extract it, but don`t run it yet.

    You might want to copy and paste these instructions into a notepad file. Then you can have the file open in safe mode, so you can follow the instructions easier.

    Boot into safe mode. See how HERE. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial61.html

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how HERE. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial56.html

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial62.html

    Run HJT with no other programmes open(except notepad). Have HJT fix the following, by placing a tick in the little box next to(if there).

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: winnyv32 - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\winnyv32.dll

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Run AVG and do a full system scan. Delete whatever it finds.

    Run the killbox.exe file. When it loads type the full path to the file you would like to delete in the field and check the delete file on reboot button. press the Delete File button (looks like a red circle with a white X). It will prompt you to reboot, select no until you have finished inputting the files you want to delete, only then allow it to reboot and hopefully your files will now be deleted.

    This is the filepath you need to enter into killbox.


    Once your system has rebooted, turn system restore back on and post a fresh HJT log.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    I have followed your instructions and have attached an updated hjt log. How does it look now?

    Have HJT fix the following entry.

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: winnyv32 - winnyv32.dll (file missing)

    Once you`ve done that, you should be good to go.

    Regards Howard :)

    Should I do this in safe mode or normal mode?

    Normal mode will be fine.

    Done. HJT log attached.

    Howard. You are an absolute star.

    I wouldn't have had the first clue how to tackle this problem.

    Cheers mate,
