I need help.

I have a slew of troubles. It started with what my AVG Anti-Spyware says is: Proxy. small.ck It destroyes it, but it comes right back.

It's been going on since yesterday. Since then it finds all of the following at one time or another:

worm.mydoom.bj
rootkit.agent.jj
downloader.agent.dul
dropper.small.bbs
trojan.agent.asu


Norton doesn't find a thing when I do a full system scan. Millions of pop-ups... and can't print anything.

HELP!!

Print out and follow the AVG Anti-Spyware Install-Scan Instructions and redo your scan in "SAFE MODE".

I tried that... and I kept having problems. However, I followed the instructions you posted on an earlier posting at: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/114766/i-have-a-virrus-that-i-cannot-get-rid-of/ and that worked perfectly. My machine is clean... or at least it is acting like it now.

THANKS!!! :thumbsup:

If everything is running smoothly and your not finding any more malware, then 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.
