Hi pekingzibaduck, Welcome to MalWare Removal !!

You may wish to print out a copy of these instructions to follow while you complete this procedure

You are currently using HijackThis from a temporary directory, this can cause problems.
HijackThis creates backups, these are needed in case of any recovery issues.
Please create a folder on your C:\ and give it a name (example:HJT), move HijackThis.exe to that folder. Run the program from that directory from now on.

Download and Unzip Brute Force Uninstaller© by Merijn to your desktop

Run Brute Force Uninstaller
Click the Web button to the right of the Dialog box at top
Copy and Paste the following URL into the address bar of the Download script window:

http://metallica.geekstogo.com/p2pnetwork.bfu

Execute the script by clicking the Execute button.

Then Reboot and post a fresh HijackThis log here

Hi Again

After i did what you said in your first email I reran Adaware and it deleted the alcan.a. It isn't showing the worm anymore. Neither is Microsft Antispyware or Computer Associates Pest Scan. I've rerun Hijack This and the files you wanted deleting aren't there anymore. I haven't done the next section of your instructions as I'm not sure if I should if the files are already deleted.

Here's my log:

Go ahead and do this part to see if they are there :

Open Windows Explorer, locate and Delete the following folders or files in BOLD : (if present)

C:\Program Files\wmplayer
C:\WINDOWS\system32\p2pnetworking.exe


You can then run ATF

How is your system running now ??

Your log is CLEAN !!

Here are a few tools that I recommend for protecting your system and keeping your system clean !!

Spyware Scanners:
Ad-aware SE© by Lavasoft Scans your system for spyware and other threats
a² Scanner© by Emsi Software : Scans for Malware and Trojans on your system.

Good Free Antivirus Programs:
AVG© by Grisoft
Avast© by ALWIL Software
NOTE:Remember always have just [b]1 antivirus program running at a time. Having more than one running causes a conflict between the programs !! You can use one as a backup to run manually[/b]

Windows Update:
It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks
Windows Update

Firewalls:
If you have an "always on " internet connection, such as DSL or Cable, I recommend a Firewall.
A firewall will make your pc invisible to the outside world and will filter the outgoing and incoming traffic on your pc.
For a good idea of how vulnerable your system(s) are go to GRC
Scroll down to "Shields Up" Click on "Proceed" Then click on "Common Ports"to scan your ports.
Very good Firewalls :
ZoneAlarm Firewall© by Zone Labs
Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall© by Sunbelt

These next steps are optional, but will provide the greatest protection
Use ANY browser besides Internet Explorer, almost every exploit is crafted to take advantage of an IE weakness
Alternative Browsers:

Opera© by Opera Software ASA

Java Runtime Environment© Sun Microsystems. It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine .

Always keep your Antivirus & Spyware Removal Tools current with the latest definitions and updates !!

Using these tools and keeping them updated will reduce the risk of future infections!!

Do you have any questions??

Thanks for all your help.
Everything is sorted.
I just don't understand how I got infected in the first place as I always have an up to date firewall & anti virus (Computer Associates e-trust). I run Adaware every couple of days and download all Microsoft updates. I thought I was safe - just goes to show!

Thanks again Paul
