Not sure if my system is clean of trojan!

By LastGoodNerve
Oct 2, 2007
  1. Hello. Norton Anti virus found two trojans on my system earlier this week. It didn't even quarantine them! I lost task manager, pc properties, and coulldn't get into regedit. I used combofix and that restored everything I lost, I think. I ran AVG and Ccleaner. I'm just not sure if I'm clean. I changed passwords at online banking. But I still scared that I am open to attack. I also installed zonealarm. Is there anything you can tell me to put my mind at ease? Please help.

    I have attached HJT log. Thanks.

    I would back up all data and do a format. This is because if you do online banking, then you are taking a big risk, as you have already found't two trojans. Please read the following: If your system is infected, read this before deciding whether to Clean or Format.

    Taking a look at your HJT log, i couldnt find anything suspicious but this needs deleting: O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {CD67F990-D8E9-11d2-98FE-00C0F0318AFE} - (no file)

    Regards Jase :)

    What log were you looking at?

    LastGoodNerve, you should work through the preliminary removal steps. This should clean up a lot of what is on the system.

    HijackThis is a tool used for detecting and removing some forms of malware. It is not to be confused with Anti-virus or Anti-spyware.

    You need to have a read of this - If your system is infected. Read this before deciding whether to CLEAN or REFORMAT.

    Then if you should wish to proceed with cleaning your system you need to go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, Combofix, and AVG Antispyware logs as ATTACHMENTS into this thread, only after doing the above.
