I am running Windows XP Home Edition SP3 and while clicking on a link trying to find the lyrics to a certain song last night, Avast alerted me to a Virus/Worm. It went through the whole routine of freezing everything up and not being able to close the windows, but eventually I instructed Avast to delete it. I then did a full Avast scan in safe mode and everything was clean except for this one line:

Name Of File

C:\Documents and Settings\Sean\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\SEIGLIUM\search[1].htm

Result

Infection: HTML:Iframe-inf
(it could be lframe-inf but I couldn't tell from the readout)

Is this anything to worry about? Is it safe to assume that since it was in the Temporary Internet Files folder for IE5 and not in a System folder then it's not that much of a threat? Since I'm running IE7, do I even need any IE5 files? Couldn't I just delete the entire IE5 content folder?

Today, I did another half a dozen full scans in safe mode with Malewarebytes' Anti-Malware, SUPERAntiSpyware, Spybot S&D, SpywareBlaster, a-squared, RogueRemover, etc. and they all came up clean. Please advise me of anything else I can do that might help.

I am going to run another full Avast scan tonight in safe mode just to be sure that it's completely gone. Also, I notice that when I run Avast in safe mode it says, "Resident Protection: Disabled" - is this normal? It's usually set to either Normal or Custom depending on the application. If this scan also comes up clean, am I then OK?

Thanks!

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.

I ran Avast last night again and everything is clean - the HTML: Iframe-inf is gone! Do I still need to run SDFix? Why is it different than any of the antivirus/antispyware programs I've already run?
