Hey Guys,

I think I am infected, I started getting browser redirects and google searches were going to stopzilla.com from my firefox browser. I tried running Ad-aware lavasoft and it didn't detect a lot, I then tried downloading and running spy bot search and destroy, I was able to install it but when I click on spy bot to run, nothing happens. I tried running scan using my Mcafee it detected some infected files which it delete, then I started getting svchost.exe error messages.

I then formatted my harddrive and installed a fresh copy of windows XP, thought it is over, but its not. I had multiple partitions (C: and D:), I formated C drive but not D, may be D drive is also infected which caused the virus to re appear.

When I click on any drives C or D it gives me weird messages access denied or sometimes "windows cannot find 'recycles\<whateversomething>.com'. make sure you typed the name correctly and then try again."

I started getting all sorts of weird problems, I downloaded spy bot again and tried running it, still nothing happnes, it installs fine but i am not able to run.

I tried download malware bytes anti-malware, tried renaming it and running it, it also wont run. I tried it running from safe mode, still no luck.

here is the log of my hijack this:

Ok, since nobody responded, I will respond myself.......:thumbsup:

I was able to clean this thing up, I have a C drive (OS) D Drive (Data) and a E Drive (USB) 500Gig external drive.

I booted my computer with a BART PE CD and then I went to command prompt, I removed these files and folders from D drive and E drive:

- There was a hidden file autorun.inf and a hidden RECYCLE folder, changed the attributes for autorun.inf "attrib -r -h -s autorun.inf" delete the file. Delete all the hidden and systems folders rmdir /s/q RECYCLE, etc etc.

Reloaded the OS, I had a backup of my OS using DriveImageXML, which I loaded from within BART PE, rebooted the computer and installed antispyware and updated my anti virus..........

All good now.
