**EDIT** - I ran a malware program and it took care of somethings, here is my latest HJT log.

Hello,

First of all I want to offer my greatest thanks for those who run, maintain, and respond to these threads. Thank you so much for your time! Here is my HJT log. I'm sure there is lots of junk:

UPDATE: NOT A BUMP

Just received this email from my school.... speak of the devil.

All,

· This is a warning about AntiVirus2009 Spyware that has infected several student laptops over the past few weeks and months.



· AntiVirus2009 is a misleading application that may give exaggerated reports of spyware/virus/malware threats on your computer.



· A detailed description, with pictures of the Spyware, is available here

.



· Additionally, a video is available here

which details how one would become infected with the AntiVirus2009 Spyware.

If you begin to get pop-ups from your Internet browser asking you to install AntiVirus2009, the best way to prevent an installation from occurring is to immediately shutdown Internet Explorer and/or Firefox. To do so:

1. Hit Crtl + Alt + Del to open the Task Manager

2. Go to the “Processes” tab

3. Find “iexplore.exe” and/or “firefox.exe” and highlight it

4. Click “End Process”, and select Yes to continue

5. Repeat steps 3 & 4 if “iexplore.exe” and/or “firefox.exe” is listed more than once.

6. After you have ended all of the processes you can re-open Internet Explorer or Firefox and continue to use as normal

If your laptop has been infected with AntiVirus2009, or you suspect it has, please visit the SOP helpdesk in the Pharmacy Learning Center, room 133.

Best,

SOP Helpdesk

Hello,

Don't be so hard on yourself. I don't think it's stupid at all. It's hard to know exactly what to do sometimes. For the future though, either add a new reply if you want to add information, or just wait until it's answered if you aren't sure. The way the scripts work here, you can reply to yourself and your topic still shows up in the unanswered list we have. :)

Now....down to it! :thumbup2: What Norton found was completely all right. It's in System Restore and not a threat, but we'll take care of it :


Click Start Menu > Run > type (or copy and paste)

%SystemRoot%\System32\restore\rstrui.exe

Press OK. Choose Create a Restore Point then click Next. Name it ( something you'll remember) and click Create, when the confirmation screen shows the restore point has been created click Close.

Next goto Start Menu > Run > type

cleanmgr

Click OK, Disk Cleanup will open and start calculating the amount of space that can be freed, Once thats finished it will open the Disk Cleanup options screen, click the More Options tab then click Clean up on the system restore area and choose Yes at the confirmation window which will remove all the restore points except the one we just created.

To close Disk Cleanup and remove the Temporary Internet Files detected in the initial scan click OK then choose Yes on the confirmation window.

Now see if Norton says anything. :step1: Your HijackThis log isn't showing anything malicious.

If I may say so, the e-mail you got from the Helpdesk.........by the time you accomplish what they say to do, it'll be too late. :step4: I know they're trying to help, but the malware is much faster than the reaction time once you realize what's going on and then do what they say.

Let me know how you come out, and how it's running today.

Thanks,
tea
