Tried a manual removal but obviously missed something as it reinstalls itself every time I reboot.
Others on the forum suggested SDFix, but it gets halfway through running and needs to reboot the system, whereupon the trojan reinserts the registry entries preventing the editing of the registry, and so when the system restarts to complete the work of SDFix, it cannot repair the registry.

I've manually fixed EVERYTHING listed in the Sophos article on this trojan, but it reinserts itself on reboot still. It even installs itself on every computer I hook up to my cable modem, suggesting to one friend that it may be residing in my modem's internal memory. I know this trojan's only two days old, but it'd be nice if someone would release a fix for it soon, so if anyone does, could someone let me know please?

In the meantime I'm going to hope someone can spot what it's using to reinfect my system from this log, and then maybe I can get my system back under my control.

Note: I terminate and delete NMBGMonitor.exe every time windows boots up, right away.
I also immediately order my firewall to block ndisuio.sys, as if I do not, my machine will reboot 15 minutes after loading, and the trojan will be restored. Unfortunately, while blocking this file keeps the trojan from reinstalling (I'm guessing someone's broadcasting to the trojan through it) it also prevents any other computers and consoles on my network from accessing the internet, as they all connect through this box, and seem to require it for connecting.

As for the "Why are you using SP1?" question - this rig is my retro gaming rig, which I hooked up after my other system got the trojan. SP2 breaks a lot of my old games. I'm currently switching my other system, the one the network usually connects through, to use Ubuntu, which I'm installing as we speak, since using windows ICS *IS* just a bad idea, I know... A proper proxy running on the Ubuntu box should be a LOT safer.

*Edit* Also - some entires from my attempt to install Avira seem to still be there, don't know why as it cancelled the install with an error several weeks ago. Oh well.

Any and all help appreciated.

Okay, it is STILL reinstalling itself. No matter how many registry entries I clean out and temp-files it creates I delete, it keeps reinstalling itself. I thought I'd killed it off completely, my registry was all fixed and I'd rebooted safely several times, with no sign of the trojan, then BOOM! 30 minutes ago I get a "Remote call procedure terminated unexpectedly, the system is shutting down" message. I knew the moment I saw it that it was this again.

Unsurprisingly, THIS time when it rebooted, I had registry editing and task manager once again disabled and my firewall was once again blcoking NMBgMonitor.exe

This time round I've created a dummy read only file after deleting it, in the hope that might prevent it from restoring itself. But this thing is COMPLETELY out of control now. This is quite possibly the worst trojan I've EVER encountered in the last 20 years... And still as far as the internet seems to be concerned, there is no fix.

*edit* I relaise you're not recommended to post replies but the edit time on the original post had expired and new developments have occured, so I want all the info to be available.
