Rootkit Podnuha making life hell

Unread postby bubaipal » March 16th, 2009, 2:36 pm

Thanks for your desire to help normal people like me out of trouble.

My computer is infected with viruses chiefly Win Rootkit Podnuha. The most irritating problem is that it has infected a file named dbgen.dll in system32 folder and I cannot do anything about it. Avast cannot quarantuine, I tried deleting it at startup by Avast and Hijackthis but it still won't work. I tried removing a registry value of a browser helper pointed to dbgen.dll but it says that the registry entry cannot be removed or edited. Although it shows that I have admisnistrator control in my account but still I cannot do the functions of a administrator properly.

I had my firewall off for sometime(Comodo). I turned it on and saw that svchost was sending info to some IPs on logging to net and just after that those IPs startsd to access my computer which the firewall prevented. I have tagged svchost.exe as a banned app in Comodo and stopped its access to net and now the outside Ips are not able to try to access my computer. But svchost is still trying to connect to them repeatedly.

I used IE6 and just swithch to IE7 and Opera 9.6

Here is the hijack this info: Please help
