I appear to be infected with both Win32.Agent.pz and sdra64.exe

> My problem is very similar to a topic posted 2 days ago on Mar17: "sdra64.exe, Cannot remove infection (sdra64.exe)"
> The poster was able to solve his problem. But I'm unfamiliar with some of the things he did. And, I cannot find sdra64.exe in system32 folder. (maybe because WinPatrol has trappped it as described below)

********* SpyBot Details **************

1) Spybot reports Win32.Agent infection. Unable to remove using spybot S&D after trying several times.

********* HJT Details **************

2) sdra64.exe was actually "trapped" by WinPatrolPlus as trying to configure itself as a startup program. This happened immediately after AVG active scanning isolated some other nasties. I cannot eliminate it using WPP.

I have solved my problem; please close this request for help.

Here's how:
After reading several other "sdra64" topics, I found one where someone had good luck with Avast anti-virus. So, I downloaded trial version.

I used it 3 times, once using "standard" scan, and twice using "thorough" scan. I restarted between each scan. It found Win32:Rootkit-gen; JS:ScriptPE-inf; and Win32:Adware-gen. The 3rd scan came up clean. I like the product a lot, but it has what can only be described as a bizarre interface.

Then ran Spybot. Spybot reported the "Win32.Agent.pz" registry entries again. After fixing those; restarted; ran Spybot again and it appears now I'm clean.

FWIW, I was using AVG 8.5 with the Resident Shield when it first reported trapping "Trojan horse Adload_r.HW" and "Virus found Win32/Heur". However, I never used AVG 8.5 to do a full-scan. Perhaps AVG would have found all the nasties that Avast did -- I just don't know.
