  1. Hello,

    First a thanks to all the good work you guys are doing here at this forum. You guys are really helping us novice people here.

    My computer seems to be struck with the same virus as others have reported. I have gone through various other threads and have already downloaded the findAWF.exe file and produced the awf.txt file using option 1.

    I was wondering if any of you can take a look at this file and provide me a list of programs that i need to provide to findAWF.exe option 2.

    If you have any questions, get back to me.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.

    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

    Double-click FindAWF.exe to start the tool. Then, do the following
    Select "option #2 - Restore files from bak folders" by typing 2 and press Enter .
    A text file will open up. Please copy/paste the following text from the quote box (all except the word QUOTE) into the text file.

    Close the .txt file and click Yes to save the changes.
    When the tool has completed, a report will open up in notepad. Please post the results of the awf.txt in your next reply as an attachment.

    Also, please post a HJT log as per the instructions HERE.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
