Hi, this is my first post. A week ago my idiot son who was visiting, connected his hard drive to my computer while connected to the internet and with autoplay on.Subsequently I was infected with a number of viruses.I have never had problems before. My Norton Antivirus programme was useless and I uninstalled it as it was unable to solve the probs and kept freezing. Taking advice from forums like this I installed Malaware and AVG free as virus checks, Spybot, and Adaware to complement Spyware terminator I already had. I also have Hijack This. I also installed Zone Alarm as a firewall and now use Mozilla Firefox as a web browser instead of MIE. After hours of scans in normal and safe modes, replacing my hosts file which had porn and betting site references on and deleting lots of refs. from my registry I still have a problem. I originally had a 'Pandex' virus, 'Fakeavalert' virus, 'Trojan horse small' and 'tidseerv' virus. My sons hard drive had a 'resycled' folder with a boot.com file on which transferred to my hard drive. They all , fingers -crossed have gone. I turned off windows restore, but I am left with a continual resident shield alert from Avg virus scan saying I am infected with the Trojan horse downloader.generic_r.Bj virus on various temp files in windows. It is unable to delete these. I have managed it in safe mode but they return. If I try manually to delete those files I am unable as they are locked by a running process. I am now in need of some expert help please. I am running Windows XP HE fully updated. Thank you.

Please do this next.

Open MBAM and click Update tab, select Check for Updates,when done
click Scanner tab,select Full scan and scan.
After scan click Remove Selected,Post new log and Reboot.

Follow that with SDFix..

Please print out and follow these instructions: "How to use SDFix". <- This program is for Windows 2000/XP ONLY.
When using this tool, you must use the Administrator's account or an account with "Administrative rights"
  • Disconnect from the Internet and temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any real time protection programs before performing a scan.
  • When done, the SDFix report log will open in notepad and automatically be saved in the SDFix folder as Report.txt.
  • If SDFix is unable to run after rebooting from Safe Mode, run SDFix in either Mode, and type F, then press Enter for it to finish the final stage and produce the report.
  • Please copy and paste the contents of Report.txt in your next reply.
  • Be sure to renable you anti-virus and and other security programs before connecting to the Internet.
-- If the computer has been infected with the VirusAlert! malware warning from the clock and the Start Menu icons or drives are not visible, open the SDFix folder, right-click on either the XP_VirusAlert_Repair.inf or W2K VirusAlert_Repair.inf (depending on your version of Windows) and select Install from the Context menu. Then reboot to apply the changes.

Hi thanks for the great wishes,appreciare it. Happy New Year to you!!
Now you should Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "Ok"
  • Disk Cleanup will scan your files for several minutes, then open.
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click the "Clean up" button under System Restore.
  • Click Ok. You will be prompted with "Are you sure you want to delete all but the most recent restore point?"
  • Click Yes, then click Ok.
  • Click Yes again when prompted with "Are you sure you want to perform these actions?"
  • Disk Cleanup will remove the files and close automatically.
Vista Users can refer to these links: Create a New Restore Point and Disk Cleanup.

That was to be my first job today. I'd done it before but obviously not when clean. Cheers

"May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you
In the palm of his hand."
