I am operating XP sp3
Of course I am getting the wonderful and FREE Antivirus 2009 Scans Compliments of some A**hole who thought it was funny to do this. Anyways...PC Cillin, HouseCall, McAfee did not pick up any of these viruses I currently have. Safe mode was not an option from normal F functions (F8), I ended up going through MSConfig and made it start in safe mode that way. I was then able to go to C:> cd \AV-CLS and tried scanning with all options, but Kaspersky would not run. It was being blocked. However, while scanning all the options, McAfee and Trend did not pick up anything what so ever. As sheer determination, I went directly to their (Kaspersky) website and am scanning now. Within seconds I had 17 infections and 3 threats. While typing all of this, I received 4 threats and 18 infections. As of right now this is what I have:
Packed.win32.polycrypt.d Did a good job getting this one
Trojan.Win32.Monderb.fus Only definition, no cure information through google
Trojan.Win32.Monder.fth Only definition, no cure information through google
not-a-virus:Monitor.win32.keylogger.dq Apparently..this one is just as bad as the polycrypt.d
Apparently the polycrypt.d one is the one that is really causing the most problems (the grey colored ones are no more important, just trying to keep it easier to see each and every issue I can recollect):
Antivirus 2009 complimentary scans
if I look up a file and look at virus properties it locks up the computer
when restarting it would give me a message upon loading windows that Files Already Existed...it would then go to my desktop and all I saw was the background. Eventually the desktop would load.
Closing processes that I knew for a fact were not necessary and 90% sure it was infected (malicious) would not end
When running preliminary HJT reports, these infections were not listed...the files were, but were not able to be deleted
I ran CCleaner, but have not made any changes or deletions until Kaspersky is done cleaning and have conversed with you guys.
One really interesting thing I did find, in the Control Panel-Add/Remove, I have the first 6-9 programs listed and then a HUGE GAP that I have to scroll down to see the bottomI know how to do a print screen, but not sure how to load the image so you guys can see what I mean
Can't think of much more BAD crap that is happening. At this point if you name it, I am sure it is happening. LOL
I am about to go absolutely but like I said earlier...sheer determination has kicked in. What aggravates me the most is that I like to think I am pretty good with computers/programs (suck at networking). These infections are my fault due to a Limewire download about a year ago. It was a Thomas the train download (video) that I never got around to opening. I then wanted to convert an AVI file and wasn't sure what the extensions were on my videos I already had. I should have opened one I played for sure and knew was clean, but when I had the Thomas the Train file scanned for viruses, it came back clean. So I am kicking my own arse on this one.
Anyways, thank you guys for your time and hope you can give me some insight on the viruses that are causing the problems. Tracking down the processes and files have really been tidieous and unsuccessful.
