For a while now, I've been having a struggle against the Win32.Sality. Any Antivirus programs I install cannot boot up (it says something about services unable to start up). I've tried AVG, Nod32, McAfee, Norton, Panda etc. Any Antivirus Websites such as virusscan.jotti.org, kaspersky.com, symantec.com etc. will not load at all, which is the strangest part. Also, simple programs like AdAware or CCleaner close immediately upon execution. I have tried booting into safe mode, but as soon as I press "Boot into Safe Mode" the computer restarts itself.

In addition to all of this, I have Process Guard up and I am constantly bombarded with random applications in my Temp folder being created and attempting to execute. These include malware like:

Hello lolilaughed,

Sorry for the delay.

Looking at your system now, one or more of the identified infections is a backdoor Trojan.

If this computer is ever used for on-line banking, I suggest you do the following immediately:

1. Call all of your banks, credit card companies, financial institutions and inform them that you may be a victim of identity theft and to put a watch on your accounts or change all your account numbers.

2. From a clean computer, change ALL your on-line passwords for email, for banks, financial accounts, PayPal, eBay, on-line companies, any on-line forums or groups you belong to.

Do NOT change passwords or do any transactions while using the infected computer because the attacker will get the new passwords and transaction information.

Step 1
First lets make a folder on your desktop. If you don't know how to make a windows folder, please visit the following link.
Make sure to name it sality fix.

Step 2
Please download the following three files into the folder that you just created from the following link.
  • rmsality.exe
  • Open the sality fix folder
  • Double-Click rmsality.exe to run it
  • The scan will now begin (The scan will take some time, so allow it to run completly)
  • When it is completed, hit the button saying Save log... and save it to your desktop
  • Please attach the VirusRemover.log to your next post along with a fresh HJT log
