Hi migmanus i have some really bad news :(

Your System is infected with file infector.

A file infecting virus is able to modify itself each and every time it runs. In addition, when it infects, sometimes it will destroy the file it tries to latch onto. For these reasons, you really can't fix this infection. You will need to format/reinstall the operating system on this machine.

For more information see Here
AVG Technologies wrote:There are bugs in the viral code. When the virus produces infected files, it also creates non-functional files that also contain the virus.


For more information see Here
Network Associates wrote:W32/Virut.h is a polymorphic, entry point obscuring (EPO) file infector with IRC bot functionality. It can accept commands to download other malware on the compromised machine.

It appends to the end of the last section of executable (PE) files an encrypted copy of its code. The decryptor is polymorphic and can be located either: Immediately before the encrypted code at the end of the last section At the end of the code section of the infected host in 'slack-space' (assuming there is any)
At the original entry point of the host (overwriting the original host code)


Miekiemoes, one of our team members here and an MS-MVP, additionally >> has a blog post about Virut.

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.

Crap. I am bummed. I got excited after we stopped the redirects! I will read through the information that you provided. Even though we have not found a fix I really do appreciate the time and energy you have spent on my issue.

As the resolution of this issue requires a reformat, and there have been no further questions posted regarding that process, this topic is now closed.
