Assistance with persistant viral infection...

Unread postby dakinssoln » July 28th, 2008, 12:38 am

Greetings!

My nephew is visiting me, and exposed my computer to a viral attack that first manifested itself as an "active desktop hijack" and extremely slow processing.

I ran a "Malwarebyte" (see attached logs) and a "Microsoft Malicious Software Removal" scan.

Recovered control of "Active desktop" then discovered other related symptoms: internet browsers will close when the terms "hijackthis" and "kaspersky" are entered into search engines. Additionally, the "hijackthis" and "vundowfix" utilities will not execute. I was able to obtain a "DSS" and "GMER" rootkit scan (Also see attached). Any help resolving this issue will be greatly appreciated.

Thank You,

dakinssoln

Please do not post logs as attachments. That should only be done if you are so instructed by the helper helping you.
Please repost the logs in the topic and within one or more posts.

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.
