Spyware Gaurd 2008 - I am posting via a diff. computer

I tried to put my computer in Safe Mode to try and fix it a different way, but it would not go into safe mode, just restart.

Hi CompJS

I'm afraid I have some bad news for you. Your computer is infected with BACKDOOR TROJAN. A backdoor gives intruders complete control of your computer, logs your keystrokes, steal personal information, etc.

You are strongly advised to do the following:

  • Disconnect the computer from the Internet and from any networked computers until it is cleaned.
  • Back up all your important data except programs. The programs can be reinstalled back from the original disc or from the Net.
  • Call all your banks, financial institutions, credit card companies and inform them that you may be a victim of identity theft and put a watch on your accounts. If you don't mind the hassle, change all youraccount numbers.
  • From a clean computer, change all your passwords (ISP login password, your email address(es) passwords, financial accounts, PayPal, eBay, Amazon, online groups and forums and any other online activities you carry out which require a username and password).

Do NOT change your passwords from this computer as the attacker will be able to get all the new passwords and transaction records.

Due to its backdoor functionality, your computer is very likely to have been compromised and there is no way that it can be trusted again. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of Trojan, the best course of action would be to do a reformat and reinstallation of the operating system (OS). However, if you do not have the resources to reinstall your OS and would like me to attempt to clean your machine, I will be happy to do so. As long as you remember this: I can offer no assurances that the system will be secure afterwards.

To help you understand more, please take some time to read the following articles:

What are Remote Access Trojans and why are they dangerous
How do I respond to a possible identity theft and how do I prevent it
When should do a reformat and reinstallation of my OS
Where to backup your files
How to backup your files in Windows XP
Restoring your backups

Should you have any questions please feel free to ask.

Please let me know what you have decided to do in your next post.

Thanks peku006

First of all, thank you so much for responding to my post. I am very greatful that you took the time to help me.

Secondly, I had a feeling that the virus was very ugly. I will read over the links of information you sent me, to better understand this type of problem. Also, I am in the process of getting a restore disk to my computer. This is the best thing I can do right now, I believe, as you recommended. After restoring my system, will the computer be completely secure afterwards? I am going through and changing all of my passwords to all of the accounts I have online, as you also recommended.

If I have any questions after I recieve the restore disk and complete that process, will I be able to contact you? I believe it will take longer than 5 days.

Thanks again.

Sincerely,

CompJS

Hi CompJS

a wise choice and the right choice in this case....
and remember "Should you have any questions, please feel free to ask."

After you have reformatted and reinstalled Windows, your system will be clean. Here are some tips that will help you to keep it clean.

Spybot Search and Destroy
Download it from here. Just choose a mirror and off you go.
Find here the tutorial on how to use Spybot properly here

Install SpyWare Blaster
Download it from here
Find here the tutorial on how to use Spyware Blaster here

Install WinPatrol
Download it from here
Here you can find information about how WinPatrol works here

Install FireTrust SiteHound
You can find information and download it from here

Install MVPS Hosts File from here
The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your computer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer.
Find Tutorial here : http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm

Update your Antivirus programs and other security products regularly to avoid new threats that could infect your system.
You can use one of these sites to check if any updates are needed for your pc.
Secunia Software Inspector
F-secure Health Check

Visit Microsoft often to get the latest updates for your computer.
http://www.update.microsoft.com
Scan for and install all available Security Updates, including all offered Service Packs.

Please check out Tony Klein's article "How did I get infected in the first place?"

Due to your reformating 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.
