McAfee found a lot of trojans and got rid of them. They were in files called media.php and blowfish.dll in my temp folder which I do not recognize. The scanner identified the trojan as generic.f and said it was a low threat and deleted them. My computer appears to be ok, but I also saw antivirus 2008 installed itself. I have uninstalled it and it appears to be gone. What can I do to absolutely make sure it's all gone?

You could try scanning with Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware as described in the following article: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/malware-re...tivirus-xp-2008

Download and scan with Dr.Web CureIt. Follow the instructions here for performing a scan in "safe mode".

I didnt save either one, dr web cure it had the save log option greyed out anyway. I'll do it again if you think I should, but cure it took over 4 and a half hours to run the full scan.

Rescan again with MBAM, click the Logs tab and copy/paste the contents of the new report in your next reply. Make sure you update to the most current database before scanning again. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install. After performing a new scan, click the Logs tab and copy/paste the contents of the new report in your next reply.

Also let me know how your computer is running and if there are any more reports/signs of infection.

It says no action taken but I looked everywhere it said and didn't see any antivirus 2008 so am I good? Also, you wanted to know how the computer is running, it seems fine except outlook freezes sometimes but it comes back after a second.

If there are no more signs of infection, you should Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "Ok".
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
Vista Users can refer to these links: Create a New Restore Point and Disk Cleanup.

I used the Dr. Cure as you directed the other person and copy the info from the scan. It said it deleted the virus but moved alot of other things that were infected or suspicious. Am I still in trouble with the virus how do I get everything off. I still have a copy of report saved on my desktop.

Hi Mmeka78,

Welcome to Bleeping Computer.

It would be better if you started a new thread explaining what problems you're having. This will avoid confusion in dealing with two people at once. You are more likely to get more attention with a new thread rather than adding to an existing one, and you'll also ensure that you get dedicated help with your problem.


Regards,
Juha
