I've been working on cleaning up a PC for a friend and I have run into this little monster. Other infections included, but were definitely not limited to, Zlob and Vundo. The PC is also shutting down when trying to access the internet. Sounds like blaster, but I've run the blaster remover tool from Symantec and windows malicious software removal tool. Neither found anything. I've also run Combo Fix twice, but haven't tried to get back on line with the machine since as it was late and I needed to rest my weary head. (Me thinks I enjoy tracking down those little errant bodies of code a little too much.) I have the combofix logs with me but no hijack this log. Sorry, I should have run but was tired.

The system is running Windows XP Home edition SP2. Anti-virus is AVG 8.

Any help with this is appreciated. Thanks,

Try running the following two tools in Safe Mode.

Dr.Web CureIt!

McAfee Avert Stinger

You can download them on a working computer and transfer them to the infected computer with a CD or pen drive.
