  1. Hi, im new here - don't really speak tech, but here goes

    My Avast antivirus keeps popping up with a message about a file called 'rofl.sys', even though i locate it and delete it. It also calls it Trojan.gen. I tried Trend micro's housecall, but it froze. What can i do? Here is my hijackthislog:

    Hope someone can ease my pain............ :(

    w32:trojan.gen removal

    1. Download these programs in their own folders (i.e. on your Desktop or a permanent drive), but do not run them till I ask you to:

    Ewido (if you have uninstalled it already)
    CCleaner (if you have uninstalled it already)

    2. Boot PC in Safe Mode (tap the F8 key repeatedly at bootup - or click here). Turn off system restore.

    3. Run HijackThis (HJT) again and place a check mark in the box next to the entries listed below if present:

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = res://C:\WINDOWS\pfmbb.dll/sp.html#28129
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = res://C:\WINDOWS\pfmbb.dll/sp.html#28129

    Close all browser and explorer windows, and click "Fix checked".

    4. Enable “show all files” (if you don’t know how, click here).

    5. Search & delete the files/folders marked in red if still present:

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe <<<< delete file

    6. Run DelDomains (right-click on DelDomains.inf and chose Install)

    7. Run CCleaner

    8. Run a full scan with:

    Ewido (I know you have run it already, but please run it again)
    Click on scanner. Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
    While the scan is in progress, you will be prompted to clean files, click OK

    When it asks if you want to clean the first file, put a check in the lower left corner of the box that says "Perform action on all infections" then choose clean and click OK.

    Once the scan has completed, there will be a button located on the bottom of the screen named Save report
    Click Save report. Save the report .txt file to your desktop. Close ewido security

    Place a check mark in: Memory, Startup folders, drive, Registry, System folders and Services.
    - and a dot in: All local drives og Scan all files. Click on Scan.
    The scanning might take a couple of hours - depending on how much you have installed on your PC.

    Once scanned and items deleted: Click OK. Click Exit - and Exit again if you don’t want to buy the programme.
    NOTE! Do NOT click ”Add to Start-up folders”!

    9. Reboot PC in Normal mode.

    10. Run HJT again and check for any unusual entries. Once virus (rootkit) free. turn on system restore.

    Thanks a bunch for your help, I think the Trojan.gen or whatever it was, has left my computer. There was a s**t load of unwelcome stuff, most of which i have no idea about what was, but my computer seems to be running at a better speed. Plus, there is no longer a message with rofl.sys.

    Gratefully out of the woods
