Hello,

I have a suspected problem with Malware. This started a few days ago when I was infected with MS Antispyware 2009. I followed some instructions which found on: www.2-spyware.com/remove-ms-antispyware-2009.html and also a similar thread found on: www.spywareremove.com/removeMSAntiSpyware2009.html and believe this is now manually removed, however I continue to have numerous problems with my PC:

- Internet Explorer runs very slowly
- Certain sites are never reached reached, these sites include this one and other antispyware and technical sites. IE displays the message ‘Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage’. If at the command prompt I enter “tracert forums.spybot.info”, it comes back with: “Tracing route to localhost [127.0.0.1] over a maximum of 30 hops”
- Sometimes the PC does not boot up. It hangs after the initial Windows XP loading screens is displayed and moves to a black screen with cursor. Powering off and on randomly works.

I tried to do a System Restore. It takes me as far as selecting the particular date of a restore, moves me on to the next page, but when I click ‘next’ to start the restore, nothing happens, not even an hour-glass to show it is supposedly doing something. This is the same even if I attempt the restore in safe mode.

McAfee runs inconsistently, but did throw up the DNSChanger Trojan with files such as TDSSdxgp.dll and TDSSoitu.dll. but it does not seem to be able to remove them. Reading up about them this looks like a serious threat. I’ve read some similar threads on this forum but with little computer knowledge would be really greatful if someone could take a look rather than me just trying to run a few things like Malawarebytes etc.

Many thanks in advance – log pasted below from HJT, and also below that the log file from McAfee.

Hi fenzodahl512,

Thanks for responding to my post. Since my post I've been researching it further including posts such as: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/175337/spyware-infection/. This suggests that even if we do manage to remove it (them), there is a risk that back doors can still be left.

I therefore took the decision to reformat and rebuild the PC to ensure it is clean. I guess we can consider this thread closed then.

Thanks,

Gadget Man
