HI,

I got infected with a spyware showing a yellow box 'warning! ...' just like the previous guy who got infected with rootkit.agent, and I used your advice of using the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. I did several scans using the software, but I am left with two stubborn virus - Trojan.agent and stolen.data. It said it was succesful with Trojan.agent, but ask me to delete stolen.data (c:\windows\system32\lich.data. I was able to delete this lich.data only from Safe Mode. But when I rebooted and log on again and use tha Malwarebytes, it found the same 2 virus again. I am pasting the last log that I have below:

Sometimes another piece of malware which has not been detected protects other files (which have been detected) so they cannot be permanently deleted. Others are difficult to remove completely because of their morphing characteristics which allows the malware to regenerate itself. This infection will require further investigation and probably the use of more powerful tools than we recommend in this forum. Before that can be done you will need you to create and post a hijackthis log.

Please read the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log" and complete all the steps. There are instructions for downloading and running Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) which will create a hijackthis log for you, or automatically download and install the most current version of HijackThis if it's not already installed on your computer.

When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix. After doing this, we would appreciate if you post a link to your log back here so we know that your getting help from the HJT Team.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your post or make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.
