Hi :)

I need you to do one last thing -

Please copy and paste the text in the code box into Notepad (Go to Start > Run, type Notepad and hit Enter)

Code: Select all
@echo off

sc stop Inr04
sc stop Rwc51
sc delete Inr04
sc delete Rwc51
reg delete "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Minimal\Inr04.sys" /f
reg delete "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Minimal\Rwc51.sys" /f
del %0


Go to File > Save As:. Save the file as "Fix.bat" (Including the quotes)

Double-click on Fix.bat to run the file.

Reboot your computer and let me know how everything is currently working.

Well the computer seems to be running a little slower tha it was before it got infected but the virus is still here. There ar eno threats foudn when i scan with avg anti virus but everytime i scan with the avg anti spyware there are always these tracking cookies that continue to come up each time. They keep regenerating somewhere or something. Even if i delete my cookie they just keep coming back.

There ar eno threats foudn when i scan with avg anti virus but everytime i scan with the avg anti spyware there are always these tracking cookies that continue to come up each time. They keep regenerating somewhere or something. Even if i delete my cookie they just keep coming back.

Tracking cookies are nothing to worry about, you can remove them with CCleaner (see my second post). It's normal that they keep regenerating and don't pose a threat.

Here are some tips to keep your computer clean in the future:

Click Start then Run....

  • Type Combofix /u in the runbox and click OK. (Note: The space between the x and the /u needs to be there)

    Image

  • This will uninstall Combofix.

Disable and Enable System Restore - If you are using Windows ME or XP then you should disable and re-enable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point.

Step 1: Turn off System Restore:

  • On the desktop, right-click My Computer
  • Click Properties
  • Click the System Restore tab
  • Check Turn off System Restore
  • Click Apply, and then click OK

Step 2: Reboot your computer.

Step 3: Turn on System Restore:

  • On the desktop, right-click My Computer
  • Click Properties
  • Click the System Restore tab
  • Uncheck Turn off System Restore
  • Click Apply, and then click OK

Note: Only do this once, NOT on a regular basis!

Make your Internet Explorer More Secure

If you are using Internet Explorer 7, please read and follow the recommendations at this site - http://surfthenetsafely.com/ieseczone8.htm

If you are using Internet Explorer 6, please read and follow the following recommendations -

  • From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
  • Click once on the Security tab.
  • Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
  • Click once on the Custom Level button.

    • Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt.
    • Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable.
    • Change the Initialise and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable.
    • Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt.
    • Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt.
    • Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt.
    • When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
    • If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.

  • Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.

Use a Firewall - Without a firewall your computer is susceptible to being hacked and taken over. The Windows firewall isn't sufficient as it only monitors incoming connections.

Here are a few (free) firewalls, please download and install one of them:


Visit Microsoft's Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://update.microsoft.com/ regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

Install WinPatrol - An excellent startup manager, notifies you if programs are added to startup, allows delayed startup, ... A must have! An installation guide can be found here: http://www.winpatrol.com/download.html

Install Spybot - Search and Destroy - You should scan your computer with the program on a regular basis just as you would with your anti-virus software. A tutorial on installing and using this product can be found here (do not install TeaTimer): http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutoria ... ial43.html

Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will add a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs. A tutorial can be found here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutoria ... ial49.html

Install IE-Spyad - IE-Spyad places more than 4000 dubious websites and domains in the IE Restricted list. This severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (Cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites. A tutorial on installing this product can be found here: http://www.spywarewarrior.com/uiuc/resource.htm#IESPYAD

Update All Your Security Programs Regularly - Make sure you update all your security programs (Anti-Virus, Firewall, Anti-Spyware) regularly (once a weak, at least). Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.

You can also read this excellent article by TonyKlein: So how did I get infected in the first place?

Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.

Stand Up and Be Counted! - Please take the time to tell us what you would like to be done about the people who are behind all the problems you have had. We can only get something done about this if the people that we help, like you, are prepared to complain. We have a dedicated forum for collecting these complaints: Malware Complaints. You have to be registered to post. After registering just find your country room and register your complaint. The infection you had was Vundo (Virtumundo).
