Hello,

It seems that the I too am a victim of Antivirus PRO virus, I have had it twice.
Results from the first infection was a complete system restore. I actually got the virus from a DNS hijacker both times. I have informed my anti virus provider and let them know it came from there server.

Now I am suffering from a 2nd round and this time the fight has gotten nasty. I have been able to control and eliminate the initial Trojans ect. However this time it came down even harder with 2 worms, and two various rootkits. At this point my brain is nearly fried and I need assistance in resolving this issue. I have a combo fix log if needed and it is up to date.
As a side note I am using an SMC router and have been getting the redirect from wsearch.net should I consider this a need for changing the password of the router? Yet my concern here, obviously, it could simply beusing admin pass rights

Any help would be greatly appreciated. :thumbsup:


Edit: Moved from HijackThis Logs and Virus/Trojan/Spyware/Malware Removal, as no log was posted.

Yes, disconnect from the internet. Reset the router and give it a strong password

This is not the correct forum for HJT or Combo fix. Do not post a Combofix log unless instructed by a HJT team member

If it is your intention to post a HJT log, please follow these instructions:
------------------------------

Please read the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next. In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running DDS which will create a Pseudo HJT Report as part of its log.

When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix. After doing this, we would appreciate if you post a link to your log back here so we know that your getting help from the HJT Team.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very 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 "bump" your post or 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 log in the thread titled "Post in this thread when you haven't received an answer in five days.".

Do not send me PMs with problems that should be posted in the forums. Keep it in the forums, so everyone benefits
