I'm running Windows Vista. When performing a routine scan, AVG detected Worm/Feebs in three Firefox cache files. It also reported "change" on two .dlls files. I cleared personal information while the scan was in progress. It finished completely successful and didn't say anything more about Worm/Feebs. Soon after, I ran Spybot and didn't find any problems. A-squared, however, detected Trojan.Win32.Agent.lf in C:\Program Files\DesktopDialer\assets\Modem.exe and Network.exe. I had a-squared delete the objects.

Since then, both Malwarebytes and AVG have scanned without finding threats. Everything seems to be running fine, but I'm worried. Should I be? What further steps, if any, should I take?

Hello and welcome to the forum TheCobra. Let's see what this reveals.

Before we start fixing anything you should print out these instructions or copy them to a NotePad file so they will be accessible. Some steps will require you to disconnect from the Internet or use Safe Mode and you will not have access to this page.

Please download DrWeb-CureIt & save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.

Reboot your computer in "SAFE MODE" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Scan with DrWeb-CureIt as follows:
  • Double-click on drweb-cureit.exe to start the program. An "Express Scan of your PC" notice will appear.
  • Under "Start the Express Scan Now", Click "OK" to start. This is a short scan that will scan the files currently running in memory and when something is found, click the Yes button when it asks you if you want to cure it.
  • Once the short scan has finished, Click Options > Change settings
  • Choose the "Scan tab" and UNcheck "Heuristic analysis"
  • Back at the main window, click "Custom Scan", then Select drives (a red dot will show which drives have been chosen).
  • Then click the "Start/Stop Scanning" button (green arrow on the right) and the scan will start.
  • When done, a message will be displayed at the bottom advising if any viruses were found.
  • Click "Yes to all" if it asks if you want to cure/move the file.
  • When the scan has finished, look if you can see the icon next to the files found. If so, click it, then click the next icon right below and select "Move incurable".
    (This will move it to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if it can't be cured)
  • Next, in the Dr.Web CureIt menu on top, click file and choose save report list.
  • Save the DrWeb.csv report to your desktop.
  • Exit Dr.Web Cureit when done.
  • Important! Reboot your computer because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
  • After reboot, post the contents of the log from Dr.Web in your next reply. (You can use Notepad to open the DrWeb.cvs report)

I performed the scan as instructed. It didn't find anything. I have no report list to post. I assume this is a good sign. Perhaps a-squared handled the problem earlier. That or the virus is hidden deep.

Thanks for the guidance. I haven't had any trouble on this computer before, so finding a virus shook me up.
