Just a quick question - Have a mate who sent his PC for repair (PC world), it came back last night, and we were suspect about anything being on there. I downloaded Avira, SuperAntiSpyware and MBAM onto his USB stick, so he had everything all ready for reloading and checking, and we were right - He has Rontokbro, its infected his work USB drive, and we were deleting the replicated files on our work PC (very highly secure, detected and auto deleted the files), as they appear as white box - unknown format style.exe. On his laptop, they're shown as a folder, and he was suspicious.

He's going to start tackling it all tonight, but the question I have to ask - Are there any other tools I should make him aware of, as his internet doesn't work on the infected laptop (thankfully!). Appears that this virus is an email work that leaves entries in the registry key btw.

You guys were fab with helping me with my rougueantivirus infection (just waiting for the HijackThis team to help me with the rootkit trace), so though i'd ask you ^.^

XP, sorry, should have mentioned. Only issue I have is it affects the registry, but MBAM and SAS are great, and avira might pick something up, so I told him to ensure he uses a clean usb stick to get the updates and transfer over.

please have him try this...

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.
