Like many others, I got infected with the delself.bat virus. I was surfing the web when my PC rebooted itself, and upon entering windows, a new delself.bat icon appeared on my desktop, and a red "X" appeared on my taskbar telling me that I'm infected.

I deleted the delself.bat icon and ran Malwarebyte's anti-malware program.

Here's the log file:

-------------------

There were 8 infections, and I tried to delete them, but it said that one of the files could not be deleted. It instructed me to reboot, and I did so. The red "X" is now gone. I ran the program again, and here's the follow-up log file after rebooting.

Everything seems to be behaving normally, but obviously there can be hidden problems.


My questions:

1. Does everything look okay now?

2. Should I restore my system? I'm running Win XP, Service Pack 3. I have it set on automatic restore, I believe it's weekly. I just created a restore point after rebooting, but have not restored it yet.

3. Is there any benefit to running HJT right now?

Thanks a lot!!!

Let's double-check with superantispyware

---------------------------------------------

Please download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free
  • Double-click SUPERAntiSypware.exe and use the default settings for installation.
  • An icon will be created on your desktop. Double-click that icon to launch the program.
  • If asked to update the program definitions, click "Yes". If not, update the definitions before scanning by selecting "Check for Updates". (If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and unzip into the program's folder.)
  • In the Main Menu, click the Preferences... button.
  • Click the "General and Startup" tab, and under Start-up Options, make sure "Start SUPERAntiSpyware when Windows starts" box is unchecked.
  • Click the "Scanning Control" tab, and under Scanner Options, make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):
    • Close browsers before scanning.
    • Scan for tracking cookies.
    • Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
  • Click the "Close" button to leave the control center screen and exit the program.
  • Do not run a scan just yet.
Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Scan with SUPERAntiSpyware as follows:
  • Launch the program and back on the main screen, under "Scan for Harmful Software" click Scan your computer.
  • On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
  • On the right, under "Complete Scan", choose Perform Complete Scan and click "Next".
  • After the scan is complete, a Scan Summary box will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click "OK".
  • Make sure everything has a checkmark next to it and click "Next".
  • A notification will appear that "Quarantine and Removal is Complete". Click "OK" and then click the "Finish" button to return to the main menu.
  • If asked if you want to reboot, click "Yes" and reboot normally.
  • To retrieve the removal information after reboot, launch SUPERAntispyware again.
    • Click Preferences, then click the Statistics/Logs tab.
    • Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
    • If there are several logs, click the current dated log and press View log. A text file will open in your default text editor.
    • Please copy and paste the Scan Log results in your next reply.
  • Click Close to exit the program.
