Happy New Year,

My computer had a Norton Corporate AV that was corrupted and allowed my computer to be infested with several viruses.

We installed MD32 version 2.7 and this took care of the active viruses but was not able to get at some that were more deeply imbedded in the system.

When I would open my computer, and autoexecute would try to re-install the Norton Antivirus that we had worked a long time manually uninstalling from the registry, because it was impossible otherwise.

With CCleaner, I found amvo.exe in the start up and after looking it up on the web, decided to uninstall it from there as a virus. It is no longer there.

I have then followed your Preparation Guide and just finished with the McAfee Stinger.

As I am on a LAN at work I did not want to install a firewall that might interfere with our server's functioning. But maybe it would not.

Anyways, now I can't get into my hard drive through My Computer. I first get the attempt to re-install Norton and then an error Semo2.x.exe Application Error, instruction at "0x10014005 ref. mem. at .... the memory could not be read. Click Ok to terminate program.

I can get into my documents.

Hope you can help with this.

I provide the following log file.

Hi again,

After some time of additional searching I have identified the following malwares on my computer but have not been able to kill them.

Type Kavcop Trojan A

Windows\system32\amvo.exe
C:\80avp08.com
C:\semo2xp08.com
C:\semo2x.exe

Also Generic Malware

C:Windows\wscmgr.exe
C:\Documents and Settings\Andrews\local settings\temp\dialr ...

I suspuect that these are part of a larger problem.

I try to use the on line scanners from Panda and Homecall and this last one detects things but I have not been able to write them down before the Windows explorer is closed and lose the results.

I have now spent two days trying to solve this problem myself when I should have been working on other things, and obviously need some help.

Thanks for what you can give/.

Andrew

Hi again,

After further effort and scans I think was able to delete the semo2x.exe and amvo.exe problems, using a small tool I found on the web.

Then manually, in safe mode, deleted the other two mentioned.

Went through the Major Geeks rountine to get rid of malware/spyware with Spybot and Adaware + two other programs. found nothing that I could see, although I cannot interpret many results.

Used Spybot to analyze startup as well getting rid of some unneccesary things.

However, still cannot run a housecall scan, but was able to scan with the Kaspersky scanner. Found a Trojan-PSW.Win32.onlinegames.lfi. This had infected a file Program files\Eset\infected\TL40WYDA.NQF that I finally deleted although with some reservation as it seemed to be part of my NOD32 antivirus which was installed after Norton was totally corrupted.

Afterwards I downloaded and ran the Avast antivirus tool, which supposedly detects this Trojan, finding nothing.

I believe there are more infections although the only problem I have is that a program tries to re-install Norton every time I open my C drive or many other files from My PC.

Could you look at the new HJT log and tell me what you think.

Thanks

Andrew

Hi,

Sorry for delay. We are kinda short on volunteers and are swamped.

If you still need help, please post a fresh hijackthis log here.
Let me know if Norton is still trying to install.

Thanks :thumbsup:
I'll have an order of massive trojan attack please with a side order of rootkit and virus dip.
Pre-course order of fresh spyware salad please with a side order of polymorphic dressing.
And to drink...a nice tall glass of adware!

For dessert; can I have a bowl of the freshest worms you have please?.

Never Give Up!

If you are happy with the service I provided, please consider making a donation to help me continue the fight against Malware Posted Image
