I recently found the Mustafa Trojan on our computer. This is a company computer that our former owners went super cheap with the support contract. To make a long story short, my only support involves mailing the entire PC to PA so they can repair and return it. Meanwhile my restaurant has no computer for at least three days which just happens to coincide with the owner's visit. Basically I need a one or two week long fix.
A coworker purchased DefenderPro Computer Repair (after deleting SpyBot) which has helped clean out some redundant and orphaned registry entries while I found and made dummy files for the viruses. Right now the computer is operating perfectly except no matter what we do, the disk is full. Something is either copying or saving stuff somewhere and it has completely filled the disk. This is a problem because I cannot scan with Panda, TrendMicro Housecall, HyjackThis or any other online scanner since I have no disc space. If anyone has any advice that doesn't involve a new PC, I would greatly appreciate it.
Also, in the registry, at HLM\system\controlset00*\services\shared access\parameters\firewall policy\domain profile\authorized applications, I have found several entries referencing some of the files I previously had trouble with such as findfast .exe, shell .exe, chkdsk .exe, etc. Almost all of these entries enable one of many locations of xpsp2res.dll located throughout Windows/System32. Since I am no longer seeing these files, should I be concerned about all the xpsp2res.dll's still in the system?
