Hello angelica_ong and welcome to The Malware Removal Forums.

My name is curlylad and I will be helping you to remove any infection(s) that you may have.

I have to let experts check the content of my fixes before I post them so be patient.

I will be giving you a series of instructions that need to be followed in the order in which I give them to you.

If for any reason you do not understand an instruction or are just unsure then please do not guess , simply post back with your query and we will go through it again.

Please do not start another thread or topic, I will assist you at this thread until we solve your problems.

Lastly the fix may take several attempts and my replies may take some time but I will stick with it if you do the same.

I will be back as soon as possible with your first instructions !

Please read all the following statement carefully

Unfortunately your log shows me that the system has a bad infection.
The infection - a Trojan - has what is known as a Backdoor.

These types of Trojans allow attackers to access your computer from remote locations, stealing passwords, Internet banking and personal data. These processes are a security risk and should be removed from your system.
Please read this article for more information http://malektips.com/spyware_adware_0022.html

I offer you really only one safe, realistic and appropriate option and that is that you need to format your system and reinstall Microsoft Windows.

However should you decide that you wish for me to clean your system I will gladly help you do this but I will never really know whether there is still a backdoor trojan or keylogger running silently in the background.
The reason for this is that the infection can make undetectable changes to your security settings, which may enable a re-installation of the infection after the machine is "cleaned" and reconnected to the internet.
(This infection can, in effect, leave a "cellar door" unlocked so it can come back later and gain entry).
Should you choose the option to format I will of course provide instructions if you require me to.

  • At this point I advise you to disconnect immediately from the Internet
  • Get to a known clean computer and change all your passwords where applicable
  • Also contact all of your financial institutions and inform them that you may be a victim of identity fraud.
  • Many experts in the security community believe that the only real safe option is to reinstall your operating system.

Please consider whether you wish to format your system and reinstall Microsoft Windows or whether you would like me to attempt to clean your system.

When you have decided please post back.

To help you make your decision please read through the following articles

How do I handle possible identity theft, Internet fraud and credit card fraud ?

When should I format, how should I reinstall ?

When you have decided which option you wish to take please post back informing me of this.

I think that the best option here is definately the format and reinstallation.

Since that is the route we are going to take then here's what you will need to do.

Firstly your original HijackThis log showed me that you had 2 Anti Virus programs installed and running on your system at the same time.

AVG Free Edition and also AntiVir Personal Edition Classic

Running 2 Anti Virus programs will definately do more harm than good and create all sorts of problems so this needs to be kept in mind for when you have formatted your system and reinstalled Microsoft Windows.
What you therefore need to do before you format the system is to download the installer for just 1 Anti Virus program onto removable media such as a blank CD.
When you boot up the newly formatted/reinstalled system for the first time and before connecting to the Internet, install the Anti Virus program from the CD.
Then connect to the Internet and immediately update Microsoft Windows, then update your Anti Virus program.

OK, those were the important things to remind you of, below you will see some points outlined to remind you of the important steps and also a very informative tutorial to read.

  • Please read through this document thoroughly http://spyware-free.us/tutorials/reformat/
  • When you have read through it please then print out a copy of it for your reference
  • Make sure that you haven't accidently cut off the bottom or side of the document whilst printing it out
  • Next familiarise yourself with the individual steps it is asking you to perform - if you are unsure of one minute detail please post back and ask me and I will go through it with you
  • When you have read and understood the entire document and there are no questions, make sure you have all the tools/programs etc downloaded onto removable media (eg CD)
  • Also make sure any important data not in My Documents Folder such as Quicken and/or MS Money have been backed up to removable media.
  • Remember to back up any films and or music to removable media too.
  • Also make sure you have ready your Microsoft Windows Installation CD and the unique product key (25 digit alpha-numeric code), plus the drivers CD for your system.
  • Finally have to hand all the CDs for any other programs that you wish to install, most imprtantly a Firewall and Anti Virus program.
    If you do not have a CD with a Firewall and Anti Virus program on then I suggest that you download one of each to a CD or other removable media before you move on.
  • OK, you should now be ready to begin the format and reinstallation
  • If however at this point you are still unsure of anything then post back with any query you may have no matter how trivial you may think it is and we will go over it
  • Make sure to take your time and perform each step as described, if you do that then you will soon have a newly installed operating system free from any malware or other unnecesaries.

Good luck and make sure to post any queries before you start the procedure, I am sure you may have a few questions so don't be afraid to ask.

How are you getting on with my instructions ?
It has been nearly 2 weeks since I have heard from you.
If you no longer require my help that is fine, but I must ask that you post back informing me of this.
If you still require my help then please post back to let me know how things are going.
Please be aware
If you have not replied to this message within a further 48 hours I will request an Administrator archives this thread.

sorry curlylad for the delayed reply.. i was out of town and i wasn't able to check my mail until now. anyway, i think that i would hire a technician to reboot my computer because this computer is i think 4 years old already and i have lost some of the cds and drivers and i htink that if i do it on my own, i would do more damage than the virus... anyway, thank you very much for your help. i now mroe aware of the safety precautions in using hte computer. again thank you and god bless :)
