Unread postby Tommie » February 3rd, 2008, 2:17 am

Hi,
I have this amvo.exe in my computer and I can't seem to get it away. I have problems viewing hidden folders as it will revert to "do not show hidden files and folders" after I clicked apply. I've tried using ewido online scanner to scan my computer but it showed no infections. And when I open some folders, my AVG will detect some virus which is a .dll file. Please give me some advice on clearing it.

Regards,
Tommie

I'm afraid I have unpleasant news for you.
You have one or more Very Dangerous Infection/s on this machine. It allows outsiders COMPLETE access to every keystroke, account, and password you use while on this machine, and complete access to any other data present...
IF this computer has been used for any kind of important data, my best recommendation is to :

  • Disconnect from Internet
  • Re-Format the entire drive
  • Re-Install your Operating system and Applications.

We can likely clean the infected files off the computer, and if you wish we will attempt to do so, but we cannot be sure that the infection didn't do something to your system to reduce the system security. In that instance, even after removal of the infection, you could be subject to another attack or takeover as soon as you re-connect to the Internet.

The Decision Whether to ReFormat or Not should be based on:

  • The use of the computer - this is the primary factor in the decision whether to re-format and re-install, or just disinfect.
  • The variety of malware - this influences the decision on whether to re-format and re-install, or just disinfect. IN THIS CASE we have a Remote Access Trojan, the worst kind.

If the Computer has been used for any important data, you are strongly advised to do the following, immediately:

  • Disconnect the infected computer from the internet and from any networked computers until the computer can be cleaned.
  • Back up all important data on the machine. Do not back up any Applications (programs). Those should be re-installed from the original source CDs or websites.
  • If you have ever used this computer for shopping, banking, or any transactions relating to your financial well being:
    Call all of your banks, credit card companies, and financial institutions, informing them that you may be a victim of identity theft, and to put a watch on your accounts or change all your account numbers.
  • From a clean computer, change ALL your online passwords -- for ISP login, email, banks, financial accounts, PayPal, eBay, online companies, and any online forums or groups you belong to.
  • DO NOT change passwords or do any transactions while using the infected computer because the attacker will get the new password and transaction information.
  • Take any other steps you think appropriate for an attempted identity theft.

While you are deciding whether to ReFormat and Re-Install, a useful link is here: http://www.dslreports.com/faq/10063
Please let me know what you decide.

If you decide to reformat then you should also know that there is a risk that extenal drives, USB Flash Drives, MP# music drives and even smart phones can be infected.

Ok I guess I will have to reformat the whole computer based on the severity of this situation. I have some documents in this infected computer. Is it all right if I transferred them to my thumbdrive? I couldn't afford to lose them. Will the trojans infect my thumbdrive as well?

Tommie

It could. If you can burn the documents to a CD that is ideal as to my knowledge the infections do not infect those. If you can not do that you could depending on the size of the documents send them as an E-mail attachment to yourself. Let me know what is happening.

I've already transferred all the necessary documents and stuff into the thumbdrive. So I'm ready to reformat my whole computer. Do you suggest if I partition my hard drive? so in the future, if there are any malware in the C:, i will just need to reformat my C drive instead of other drives right?

Tommie

Sounds like an excelent idea. It is always a good idea to keep the data separate from the programs. Also makes it easier to back up the data.
