Hi All,

Just a bit of help would be much appreciated please, last night was unable to access the internet after some searching ( with another machine) and downloading of drivers and managing to be able to deal with registy keys i finally got back online on the main computer. In my investigations it appeared as though a trojan was causing my problems which i believe has now removed, i downloaded and ran Hijack this just really to be sure that i have no more infections on my PC.

I've noticed there are a number of SVChost.exe running is this normal? Please can you take a look at my hijack this log and let me know if there is anything else i need to worry about.

Thanks in advance sol-aero

I have bad news for you :(

I see you're dealing with Virut on top of the other nasty malware you are dealing with. In that case, it's unfortunately a lost case - Game over situation and a format and reinstall is the fastest and especially the safest solution.

You may want to read this why: Virut and other File infectors - Throwing in the Towel?

So, I suggest you to start backup all of your valuable data/documents/pictures/movies/songs/etc.. Do NOT backup any applications/installers and Do NOT backup any .exe/.scr/.htm/.html/.xml/.zip/.rar files...
This because these files may be infected as well. If you back them up and replace them afterwards, it will infect your computer again.

Read here for instructions how to format and reinstall Windows: http://web.mit.edu/ist/products/winxp/adva...all-format.html

If you have any questions let me know.

Due to a 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.
