Viruses, misdirections, what is zq0.exe?

Unread postby sonyncher » May 24th, 2010, 1:21 pm

Hi,

I seem to have several problems going on here and I've run MCAFEE VIRUS scans, MALWAREBYTES, SPYBOT S&D etc:

1. I don't know what process zq0.exe is that runs every time I start of the PC. I've cancelled the process and removed it from STARTUP (via msconfig) but it keeps coming back in the startup entry:

c:\DOCUME~\MOMAND~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\zq0.exe

2. MCAFEE keeps finding and deleting a virus but it keeps appearing:

5/19/2010 11:26:46 PM Cleaned Mom and Dad Hidden FakeAlert-MY.gen(Trojan)
5/19/2010 11:26:46 PM Cleaned Mom and Dad NoRun FakeAlert-MY.gen(Trojan)

3. Internet connectivity is intermittent with my netgear wirelss router, not sure if it is related or not.

4. Internet explorer gets misdirected, but not consistently.

Here's my HJT log:

We're sorry, but it is necessary to close your topic because you have replied to it prior to receiving a response from a helper.

Due to adding on to your topic with your second post it is highly unlikely that you would have received a response. Our helpers are looking for topics with zero responses. When you post replies to your own topic, it no longer has zero responses, and so it appears that you have received help when in fact, you have not.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Malware Removal forum and wait for assistance. Please do not run additional programs and/or post additional logs. Just your HijackThis log to start with is adequate. Your helper will ask for additional logs as needed. DO NOT reply to your own topic until you have received a response from a helper. Be patient. There are others who have been waiting longer than you, so do not expect an immediate reply.
