Posted 19 October 2008 - 07:18 AM

Hi there,

Some time ago my PC was suddenly hijacked whilst surfing the Internet resulting in the following issues:

* My Desktop icons were replaced with Error Cleaner, Privacy Protector, Spyware & Malware Protection
* My clock had an error message beside it stating 'VIRUS ALERT!'
* I kept getting error messages trying to sell me spyware removal software
* C:/ drive was hidden
* All Programs icon was taken out of the Start menu


With a little research I realised that I needed to use Combofix as advised in similar BC forum topics and I did so following the prescribed instructions. I now have my Desktop back with all parts functioning as expected, however my System Restore keeps telling me it is unable to restore my PC to a state prior to the infection.

I would like to clarify that my PC is indeed clean and clear or if remnants of the infection remain, how I should get rid of them. To help with this I have attached a copy of the log file as outputted by the Combofix procedure. If further information/scans/logs are required please do let me know.

Many thanks,

Kav

Hi benny269,

Welcome to Bleeping Computers

My name is Tomk_. I would be glad to take a look at your log and help you with solving any malware problems. HijackThis logs can take a while to research, so please be patient and I'd be grateful if you would note the following:
  • I will be working on your Malware issues, this may or may not, solve other issues you have with your machine.
  • The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for the issues on this machine.
  • Please continue to review my answers until I tell you your machine appears to be clear. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.
  • It's often worth reading through these instructions and printing them for ease of reference.
  • If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to say or ask!! It's better to be sure and safe than sorry.
  • Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
  • Unfortunately, if I do not hear back from you within 5 days, I will be forced to close your topic. If you still need help after I have closed your topic, feel free to create a new one.
I apologize for the delay in response. We get overwhelmed at times but we are trying our best to keep up.
If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate your letting us know. If not, please post a new HijackThis log so that we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.
