The only thing is, this set of viruses has shut down my internet entirely. I cannot connect at all.
I suppose I'll have to try and use another computer to post a log from my infected one.
Although I just really want to get rid of it ASAP, as with the OP I have a lot of work I need to do in the next few weeks, this problem could not have come at a worse time.
Been reading this thoroughly, I'll try FileAssassin.
brastk.exe and so forth keeps recreating itself on startup, as well as 'karna.dat'.
I've deleted a lot of things from c:/windows but there are a few that cannot be removed whilst running. The thing is, brastk.exe never says that it is running in the task manager. (Going through Adaware and using Process Manager - since the Windows Task Manager is 'disabled').
Thanks for the quality posting. =]
Main problem for me, is the no internet thing. Meaning I can't use any programs that require connection to the internet to run/update.
Also, another random thing...my computer (has always, since I bought it) has never been able to restart/reboot. It simply shuts down normally...and then without turning itself off, kind of hangs there in eternal limbo, and the safe mode startup doesn't seem to work either.
So a lot of solutions seem to go down the tubes when I can't do this...and now, I assume because of this virus, it seems to make MSCONFIG crash when I click on anything in BOOT.INI. So I cannot specify it to start up in safe mode this way either.
PS, I run Windows XP.
