Hello and welcome to MWR.

My name is vict0r and I will help you with the malware issues on your computer.

Please read the following information carefully.

IMPORTANT: Whatever repairs we make, are for fixing your computer problems only and by no means should be used on another computer.

To make cleaning this machine easier:

  • Continue to respond to this thread until I I tell you that the logs are clean!
  • Please DO NOT uninstall/install any programs unless asked to. It is more difficult when files/programs appear or disappear from the logs.
  • Please do not run any scans other than those requested and do not post any logs/reports unless specifically requested to do so.
  • Please follow all instructions in the order posted.
  • If you have any questions or do not understand instructions, please ask before continuing.
  • Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
  • Your security program(s) may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.

Note: Please be aware as I am still in training all of my fixes/posts require prior checking by a MRU Teacher. So some delays may be inevitable, please be patient and I will reply again asap.


Please post an Uninstall list.

  • Open HijackThis.
  • Click on the Open the Misc Tools section button.
  • Look under System tools.
  • Click on the Open Uninstall Manager... button.
  • Click on the Save list... button.
  • It will prompt you to save. Save this log in a convenient location. By default it's named uninstall_list.txt.
  • Notepad will open. Please post this log in your next reply.

Hi.

Please read the following carefully and post your decision in a reply to this post.

BACKDOOR TROJAN

I'm afraid I have some bad news for you. One or more of the identified infections is a BACKDOOR TROJAN. A backdoor can give intruders complete control of your computer, log your keystrokes, steal personal information, etc.

If you have not already done so, the following steps should be taken:

  • If you have ever handled anything related to money (online banking, online shopping, etc), call your bank company and say that you might be a victim of identity theft due to a computer virus which logs keystrokes.
  • Next, change ALL your passwords from a different computer! Do not use them on this computer again, until we have verified that there are no remaining infections present.

Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of malware, the best course of action would be to do a reformat and reinstallation of the operating system (OS). Although an attempt can be made to continue cleaning remaining infections on this machine, we can not be certain that it afterwards will be truly clean, secure, and trustworthy.

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

How do I respond to a possible identity theft and how do I prevent it
When should I 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.
