my HJT logfile

  1. Hi,
    I'm new at this as well..what's happening is that Norton Antivirus detected a trojan virus on my computer (called Trojan.Zonebac and this other one I can't recall), and so did spysweeper, so both programs "fixed" the problem by deleting the viruses, but everytime I start up my computer again, Norton Antivirus will detect something called "Infostealer.Gampass". It'll detect it like 10 minutes after I've logged into Windows. Please let me know how I can remove this virus for good. Thank you!

    P.S. I've already followed the 12 steps in the preliminary virus/spyware removal.

    i forgot to mention that the AVG antirootkit found no i'm just wondering if the Infostealer.Gampass is still on my computer or there a way of finding out (other than when Norton antivirus detects it?)

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    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, 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 all files in AVG Antispyware quarantine.

    Open your task manager, by holding down the ctrl and alt keys and pressing the delete key.

    Click on the processes tab and end process for(if there).

    PowerReg Scheduler.exe

    Close task manager.

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

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {2F364306-AA45-47B5-9F9D-39A8B94E7EF7} - (no file)

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {7E853D72-626A-48EC-A868-BA8D5E23E045} - (no file)

    O4 - Startup: PowerReg Scheduler.exe

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Locate and delete the following bold files and/or directories(if there).

    PowerReg Scheduler.exe<Search your system for this file and delete all instances found.

    Reboot into normal mode and rehide your protected OS files.

    Other than the above, your HJT log is clean.

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how HERE.

    Now, turn system restore back on. This will have deleted all your old restore points and any nasties that are in them. It will also have created a new, clean restore point.

    If you have any further virus/spyware problems, please post in this thread.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
