Download and install DrWebCureit:
ftp://ftp.drweb.com/pub/drweb/cureit/drweb-cureit.exe
Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT).

In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/how-to-see-hidden-files-in-windows/

Doubleclick the "drweb-cureit.exe" and click "ok" in the prompt window that will open , asking "start the express scan now".
It will first make a quick scan of your system, let it clean what it find, and when it says "done"
Click on the green screwdriver-
Actions Tab- Adware-Dialers-Riskware-Hacktools, use dropdown menu and select -Delete
Click on the drive(s) you want to scan . A red dot will mark the selected drive(s) . Then hit the green arrow in lower right corner It will now scan your drive(s), say yes to all

After the scan, in the Dr.Web CureIt menu on top, click file and choose save report list
Save the report to your desktop. The report will be called DrWeb.csv
Close Dr.Web Cureit.

Reboot your computer!! Because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Boot into safe mode under your normal user name.
run HijackThis and fix the following entries, if found (do this by placing a tick in the check boxes beside these entries and clicking "Fix checked"):

F2 - REG:system.ini: UserInit=C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,C:\WINDOWS\system32\wscript. exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\killVBS.vbs
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Navigate in Windows Explorer and delete the following files and folders in bold.

C:\WINDOWS\system32\wscript. exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\killVBS.vbs

Reboot into normal mode and rehide your protected OS files.

Always back up your registry before making any changes. If you are not familiar with working in the registry, then you should NOT attempt to make any changes on your own. Improper changes to the registry could adversely affect your computer and render it inoperable.

DrWeb shoud get this but also see killVBS.vbs Removal Instructions if you encounter any problems. (click on the Solutions Tab)

Thanks for your help. I got home late last night I tried your suggestions. I booted my computer in safe mode. I forgot to turn on all files and folders like you suggested. I thought I would be able to axcess the internet in safe mode but I guess I could not do it because of my wireless. Any way, I ran the dr. web program. No virus's were found, so I could not save a file. Also, my computer seems to be in advance stages of infection because last night I tried to post and my internet explorer kept becoming non-responsive. I am at work now, standing by for further troubleshooting. Thanks

Follow Trend Micro's killVBS.vbs Removal Instructions in the link I previously provided. If you still have problems after that we will direct you on how to post a hijackthis log and get further assistance. It's possible your dealing with more than one infection.

Now you should Set a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recent Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "OK".
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
