I recently picked up (and after a bit of work, got rid of) the 'System AntiVirus 2008' trojan by using a version of malwarebytes. and my system is still getting a few trojan pop-ups. The two that I remember are:

Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Agent.bq
and
Trojan-Spy.Win32.KeyLogger.aa

I ran the Malwarebytes program several more times, and it kept finding the same trojans and adwares, and I still get the (supposed) firewall pop-ups asking me about these programs, and I'm only allowed to x out the window or click 'Enable Protection'.

I looked up some info and found the SDFix program, however, I can not get the program to work.
According to the site, I'm supposed to run the RunThis.bat, yet every time I try the Command Prompt Screen flickers on then off my screen. I have tried typing <%systemroot%\system32\cmd.exe /K %systemdrive%\SDFix\apps\FixPath.exe> in the cmd prompt, but I still can't get it to work. I've also checked and made sure that the %comspec% variable is set to <cmd.exe> <%SystemRoot%\system32\cmd.exe>, but its still not working.

Could this have anything to do with me running Windows XP 64-bit?

Some infections are difficult to remove completely because of their morphing characteristics which allows the malware to regenerate itself. Sometimes there is a hidden piece of malware which has not been detected that protects files (which have been detected) so they cannot be permanently deleted. Disinfection will probably require 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 for further investigation.

Please read the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next. In Step 9 there are instructions for downloading the HijackThis Installer and creating a log. This is an automatic setup version which will install the program in the proper location.

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.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

Now that you have a HJT log posted in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, you shouldn't make any changes to your system.
Doing so, could change the results of the posted log, making it difficult to properly clean your system.

At this point, the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

This topic will now be closed.

If you have any questions, feel free to send me a PM.

Reflect, repent, and reboot.
