Not really, they cant. But manually dealing with things in AutoRuns will lead to you missing things, as well as leaving parts of malware behind. AutoRuns only looks at startup entries. Many types of malware have other ways of getting started, as well as the ability to hide from autoruns.

Please go to ESET OnlineScan (NOD32)
  • You will then see the Terms of Use, tick the check-box infront of YES, I accept the Terms of Use
  • Now click Start
  • Should you face a Security Warning that asks if you want to install and run a file called "OnlineScanner.cab", click Yes
  • Click Start
    • Note: (the Onlinescanner will now prepare itself for running on your pc)
  • To do a full-scan, tick: "Remove found threats" and "Scan potentially unwanted applications"
  • Press Scan
  • The Onlinescan will now start and scan your pc (this could take a while)
  • When the scan has finished, it will show a screen with two tabs "overview" and "details" and the option to get information or buy software, just close the window
  • Click Start >> Run... >> type: C:\Program Files\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt
  • The Scanresults will now open in Notepad
  • Click into the text area, right-click and chose "select all" (or use <Control>+A)
  • Right-click again and chose "Copy" (or <Control>+C)
  • Close/Exit Notepad
  • Navigate to this thread and post your log along with anything else requested from us, by right-clicking and "paste" (or ctrl+v) in the text area of the reply post you just created.
Note: For Vista Users: Eset is compatible but Internet Explorer must be run as Administrator. To do this, right-click on the IE icon in the Start Menu or Quick Launch Bar on the Taskbar and select "Run as Administrator" from the context menu.)

Hello crazyoutlaw,

In order to provide you with proper disinfection procedures, we need some additional information.

What is your operating system: Windows XP, Vista, etc.?

I want to manually remove the malware


What malware? And what identified it?

Hello crazyoutlaw,

I see that you have an active HJT thread here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/137403/help-with-my-malware-problems/ Please follow the instructions of your helper in that thread and be sure to follow through on everything. Even if the computer starts running better, that doesn't mean the infection is gone. Stay with the thread until you have been declared clean. Do not post new topics on the same issue as this confuses things and actually delays assistance.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
