mcshield running high - hijackthis log

Unread postby cobra715 » January 20th, 2009, 3:28 pm

I have recently installed McAfee Virus protection from my scottrade account (don't know if it matters but there you go). After the install my computer started going haywire. I tried every bit of spyware removal products that I could and finally got my computer to settle down to where I could get some things done. Recently, though, I have noticed that my computer has started lagging very bad and when I opened the task manager I noticed that the mcshield was running between 50% and 95% of the computers memory. I googled what I had found and it led me to the hijackthis software and so below you will find my first scan log.

All help is greatly appreciated.

Sorry for the delay. We have been very busy.

Unfortunately, you have a very dangerous infection with "backdoor" capabilities.

This can give remote intruders complete control of your computer, which can include logging key strokes, stealing information, etc.
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.
  • Call your banks, credit card companies, financial institutions and inform 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* of 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 passwords and transaction information.
Because of the infection's backdoor functionality(i.e., remote control capability), the basic security of your PC is very likely compromised, and there is no way to be sure it 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 is to reformat the hard drive and reinstall the Windows Operating System. The reason for this is that the infection can make undetectable changes to your security settings, which may enable a re-installation of the infection after the machine is "cleaned" and reconnected to the internet. (This infection can, in effect, leave a "cellar door" unlocked so it can come back later and gain entry).

If you do not have the resources to reinstall your Windows Operating System and would like me to attempt to clean your machine, I will be happy to do so. This is your choice to make.
The following articles may be of assistance in your decision: Should you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

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.
