Hello. Like most people that come across this site, I am in trouble and need help with my computer. I've been trying to follow the on-line instructions for Spyware, Adware and Trojans. I need help and have additional questions. I will try and find the right forum to go to for that.

Is there anyway to find out exactly what has infected your computer and how much damage can be done?

Look forward to meeting and talking with some of you on this site.

I have another question and I'm not sure where to post it. I do not want to mess up my line order for my HJT post. I posted my question on another Forum and they would not help me.

I would like to know, based on the results my searches have found, if I am severly infected by a Trojan Virus that can access my personal files? If so, then I will cancel my HJT post and proceed to a new post from a Reformat standpoint. I also need to start calling Financial Institutions to let them be aware of the situation and protect my identity. If not, then I will wait my turn, and clean up my system accordingly.

I do not want to panick and pull a chicken little with my fiancial institutions and change passwords and account numbers just to find out this is nothing but an adware virus and nothing more serious than that.

Can you please give me your opinion based on what I have posted in the "Am I infected" Forum? Also, these are the results to my searches:

-Hacktool Netmon
-Win32 Trojan Agent

Ran VirtumundoBegone - Detected and cleaned several items - did not send over log
Downloaded updates for Super AntiSpyware
Ran Super AntiSpysweeper in Safe Mode - Detected Trojan.WinFixer - Quarantined and Deleted items

Based on what I have provided here. Can you tell me what kind of Virus infected my machine? Would it be possible for a hacker to make a copy of my files and extract them in a relatively short period of time? I do keep sensitive information on my computer and I am trying to get paperless and save my statements and reports as pdf files. These folders and files had no password locks on them.

If you could look at what I've done so far and provide me with a recommendation of proceeding further I would appreciate it. Thank you for your time and consideration.

I posted my question on another Forum and they would not help me.

Lisa, the only Topics we have record of are Malware, Black Door Trojan, Browser Hijack, Adware, Mirar, Virtumonde and Malware, Browser Hijacked, Adware.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

I cannot/will not give you an opinion on the status of your OS.

Please do not post problems that you may be having in this forum. This forum is to be used solely for introducing yourself to our community.
