Platform: Windows XP SP3 (WinNT 5.01.2600)
MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.6000.16735)
Mcafee finds nothing in normal and safe mode.
Adaware finds nothing in normal and wont start in safe mode.
Spybot search and destroy found 19 items and removed with normal scan.
The slowness kept persisting so i viewed the advanced options and went through startup application in hopes of minimizing computer usage.
several system 32 applications such as ctfmon and multiple descriptions, upon further inspection i realize that several .dll's and other files have duplicated within system 32, java folders and etc. Within the description of these files in the spybot sd column of the system startup the descriptions of some of the ctfmon were:
Added by the _RAIDYS_ TROJAN! Note - this should not be confused with the valid Office XP file, see _here_
CoolWebSearch _Ctfmon32_ parasite variant
Furthermore under SunJavaUpdate scheduler i find the multiple descriptions as saying:
Added by the _SDBOT-AVX_ WORM!
Added by the _SDBOT-WI_ WORM!
the list goes on.... with other startup appliacations
were do i start and what do i do?
I have the three antivirus/malware programs listed and have recently downloaded hijack this.
Thankyou very much in advance!!
