Very infected computer

Unread postby gagaman » February 11th, 2007, 3:35 pm

Hi all,
I'm new to this forum, but I did get a lot of help in the past from Nellie and random/random at windowsforum.

This pc is from the daughter of a friend.
I think its one of the worst pc's I've ever seen, concerning malware.

What I did so far:
online virusscan using housecall
install avg free and run a scan
instal avg antispyware and scanned
a² scan
install of spywareblaster/spywareguard
run ccleaner

I would appreciate if a HJT specialist could take a look at the HJTlog.

One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan.

This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and Download and Execute files

I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.

Though the Trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of Trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS. Please read these for more information:

How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?

When Should I Format, How Should I Reinstall

However, if you do not have the resources to reinstall your computer and would like me to attempt to clean it, I will be happy to do so.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Please let us know what you have decided to do in your next post.

I just phoned the owner of the pc... there seems to be no critical financial or other important data on this pc.
I will do a format and reinstall the pc. I was thinking of adding these protection after the install:
AVG free
Avg antispyware free
spybot s&d
and offcourse, I will have a chat with them and their daughter about using your pc in a secure way.

Thanks for the advice!
