I have a trojan virus. Help!

Unread postby michele217 » March 28th, 2008, 9:09 am

I have run so many scans and I have gone into Add/Remove Programs and everything. I keep getting this message that says:
System Error!
Your computer was infected by unknown trojan.
It's dangerous for your system (critical files can be lost)!
Click OK to download the antispyware program to clean your system (Recommended)

I ran a virus scan through McAfee, Adaware, and Skybot. McAfee found nothing. Adaware and Skybot found some stuff, but it was mainly tracking cookies. I did a SpyHunter 3 scan and it pinpointed a Trojan.FakeAlert about 3 or 4 times on my computer. But, I didn't pay to have them removed because I was a little nervous to. I don't want to screw up my computer any more than it already is.

Thanks for your help!

I have a trojan virus. Help! HJT log included

Unread postby michele217 » March 28th, 2008, 5:22 pm

Hi! I posted earlier this morning, but I didn't realize we should also post a HijackThis Log. Just for a recap of the problem, I think I have a virus. I keep receiving a pop-up that says:
System Error!
Your computer was infected by unknown trojan. It's dangerous for your system (critical files can be lost)! Click OK to download the antispyware program to clean your system (Recommended).

As stated in a previous post, I did numerous virus/spyware scans (Adaware, McAfee, SpyBOT, Spy Hunter 3, Zone Alarm). Spy Hunter 3 was the only one that seemed to find a virus named Trojan.FirstAlert. However, I had to pay to get rid of it. I read some reviews about Spy Hunter that weren't so great and I became nervous that getting more involved with Spy Hunter would make my computer even worse. So, here I am. I still have the virus and I'm hoping I don't have to reformat my computer.

Here is my HijackThis log. Thanks in advance!!!

Hi, michele217. Welcome to Malware Removal. Sorry for the delay in getting to you.

Download HJTInstall.exe to your Desktop.

  • Doubleclick HJTInstall.exe to install it.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
  • Click on Install.
  • It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
  • Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in Notepad.
  • Copy/Paste the hijackThis log into your next reply please.

Don't use the Analyse This button. Its findings are dangerous if misinterpreted.
Don't have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds is harmless or even required.

Hi, michele217. I'm sorry that I missed the HijackThis log you posted earlier. I've combined the two threads. If you still need our help, please do the following.

  1. Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
  2. Double click on mbam-setup.exe to install it.
  3. Before clicking the Finish button, make sure that these 2 boxes are checked:
      Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
      Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  4. Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware will now check for updates. If your firewall prompts, please allow it. If you can't update it, select the Update tab. Under Update Mirror, select one of the websites and click on Check for Updates.
  5. Select the Scanner tab. Click on Perform full scan, then click on Scan.
  6. Leave the default options as it is and click on Start Scan.
  7. When done, you will be prompted. Click OK, then click on Show Results.
  8. Check all items and click on Remove Selected.
  9. After it has removed the items, Notepad will open. Please post this log in your next reply. You can also find the log in the Logs tab. The bottom most log is the latest.

Due to Lack of Response this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
