Your infection appears to be a Vundo variant. If you can, download MBAM and its updates on your laptop and transfer them to your desktop via flash/pen/jump drive. Please rename the main Malwarebytes file to jim.com and run Malwarebytes according to these instructions:

The process of cleaning your computer may require temporarily disabliling some security programs. If you are using SpyBot Search and Destroy, please refer to Note 2 at the bottom of this page.

On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note:
-- If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

Note 2:
-- MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes (like Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere with the fix or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please disable such programs until disinfection is complete or permit them to allow the changes. To disable these programs, please view this topic: How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs

Nigel ,Laptop & our other PC are clean Obviously the were off at the time of the infection !
I tried connecting to the net in both Safe & Normal modes could not get on any sites on Explorer & only on 3 of my most visted on Firefox ,if I try to visit any other sites I get error messages i.e 404 or could not connect etc .
It's really looking like formatting the hard drive is the only way out of this ,because the PC won;t open the thumb drive it just freezers up! can I boot from the pen drive to get Malware bytes on to the PC?
Thanks for your suggestions up to now...........Jim

Yes. You can download malwarebyte, but don't forget the updates. Manually download them from[/color] here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.[/i]

Hello OPTIMISTICBLUE1878,

I see that you now have a log posted here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic194075.html Because you have this log posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:

Actually, OPTIMISTICBLUE1878, belay what I just wrote. The contents of your new topic are practically unreadable. Therefore, I am going to delete it and ask you to post a new topic. Before you do so, please perform the following scan:
  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explanation about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
  • Notepad will open with the results, click no to the Optional_Scan
  • Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
  • Close the program window, and delete the program from your desktop.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run. After downloading the tool, disconnect from the internet and disable all antivirus protection. Run the scan, enable your A/V and reconnect to the internet. Information on A/V control HERE

When you create that new topic in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, please include a link to this topic in the body of the text. This is the URL for this topic: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/192258/our-main-pc-has-been-infected-by-this/ and be certain to say that you were sent to the HiJack This forum.
