Hello,

Well, it seems I'm standing in a long line of folks infected with this whataboutadog thing. I'd truly appreciate any help in getting rid of it.

Thanks in advance!

Here are my HJT and Find AWF logs:

Hello davelookstired,

Any idea where you go whataboutadog from?

Whether or not it's helpful, we're interested in knowing where it came from so that we can get it ourselves. We need to further analyze this infection. We've had reports of users becoming infected while looking for Vanessa Anne Hudgens pics.


Please double-click the FindAWF icon once again

If a Security Alert shows, allow the program to run.
As instructed, press any key to continue.
Use the following option: Press 2 then Enter to restore files from bak folders

A text file opens called: files.txt
Click below the line and paste the following list of files to be restored:


"C:\WINDOWS\bak\vVX3000.exe"
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft LifeCam\bak\LifeExp.exe"
"C:\Program Files\QuickTime\bak\qttask.exe"
"C:\Program Files\SymNetDrv\bak\SNDMon.exe"
"C:\Program Files\Wireless Optical Mouse\bak\MOffice.exe"
"C:\WINDOWS\system32\bak\ctfmon.exe"
"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\bak\ccApp.exe"
"C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\HP Boot Optimizer\bak\HPBootOp.exe"
"C:\Program Files\HP\HP Software Update\bak\HPwuSchd2.exe"
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\bak\GrooveMonitor.exe"
"C:\Program Files\Musicmatch\Musicmatch Jukebox\bak\mimboot.exe"
"C:\Program Files\Musicmatch\Musicmatch Jukebox\bak\mm_tray.exe"
"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\bak\realsched.exe"


Next, close and click Yes to save the changes.

Once files.txt is saved, FindAWF does the following:
-It attempts to terminate the process represented by each filename on the list, if running
-Deletes the rogue file from the parent folder, if present
-Copies the original file to the parent folder

When done with the above, it automatically runs a new scan and opens a new log.
Please provide the new FindAWF log in your reply.
