Hello!!! I am so glad that I've found this site...! I hope you can help!
After having some problems with my external disk shortcut I managed to ged rid of a virus (at least I thought so) and everything is working fine as far as I can tell. However, I did quite a few online scans with different results. Kaspersky has found Trojan-PSW.Win32.OnLineGames.pgs (and some other) but Norton (which I have in my system) doesn't find anything. Windows Live Safety Center finds different things and I am so confused... I don't know where to begin and which test to believe... Could anyone please help...??? :thumbsup:

This is a very dangerous breed of malware. Backdoor Trojans, IRCBots and Infostealers are very dangerous because they provide a means of accessing a computer system that bypasses security mechanisms and steal sensitive information like passwords, personal and financial data which they send back to the hacker. Remote attackers use backdoor Trojans as part of an exploit to to gain unauthorized access to a computer and take control of it without your knowledge.
Although the backdoor Trojan has been identified and may be removed, your PC has likely been compromised and there is no way to be sure the computer can ever be trusted again. It is dangerous and incorrect to assume that because the backdoor Trojan has been removed the computer is now secure. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of malware, the best course of action is to reformat and reinstall the OS. Please read ""When should I re-format?".
All passwords should be changed immediately to include those used for banking, email, eBay, paypal and online forums. You should consider them to be compromised. They should be changed by using a different computer and not the infected one.
We will attempt to clean it if you want,but we cannot guarantee it to be 100% safe or secure.

Thank you so much for the quick reply!!! :thumbsup:

I have also saved the logfile of Kaspersky Online Scan and a note of what Windows Live Safety Center found, a Hijack This log (which I couldn't interpret) and F-Secure's Online Scan log, if you would like to see any... All these are some days old.

I've read that text about when to format. I'd like to ask a question. I have nothing important saved in my computer (codes, pins etc.). However, I have a prepaid credit card which I use sometimes for internet byes (that's exactly why I wanted it to be prepaid). Does this mean that when I type the number in some site (ie an airline company to book tickets) or if I enclude it in an e-mail it will be visible to others? Or is it just what is saved in my PC?

I would suggest you contact that card ( from a different PC or phone) till you have fotmatted this PC and ask about a new account.

Is there any way to just try and clean it? I would like to avoid formatting for the time being, even with the risk of not having the PC perfectly clean... That card is not going to be used til summer and there's always the chance that I will get infected with sth else before that.
Thank you so much for your time!! :thumbsup:

The only way then is to have the HJT Team experts go thru your machine. Please follow the instructions here. You can start at step 9.
