Hello and thanks in advance for anyone who can shed light on my problem.
A few days back I was browsing the net and Spyware Doctor detected the trojan TDSServ. My PC also began to have lcd monitor hue distortions as well, my dvdr couldn't recognize discs as well, and my PC slowed considerably. TDSServ. seemed to vanish after that point but I doubted that it was gone from my meddling in my dynamic link library/Temp files.
I decided to reformat my pc fully since I wanted it clean to protect my passwords and such. I performed a full deletion of my old partition and installed a fresh copy of WindowsXP SP2 along with some motherboard drivers, spyware doctor, and avast home edition before even plugging in my internet. However, as I attempted to install SP3 Spyware Doctor behaved similarly to the way it did In wizard99s problem but there were variations too.
I became spammed with alerts repeating this:
-Trojan.TDServ C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\HFXD7.TMP (system event blocked)
The last 2 entries before it calmed down cited this instead:
-" " C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DLLCACHE\SET656.TMP (system event blocked)
I only have the trial edition of spyware doctor and the item is not quarantined. Avast does not even seem to pick it up. I read the forums regarding SP3 and AMD processors but this was not even an issue last time I installed SP3 on this computer.
My computer has the following:
AMD Athlon 64 X2
Windows XP SP2 2002
Avast Home Edition
Spyware Doctor Trial
Again, thanks for any help anyone can offer me and I apologize if I missed a certain forum rule. More than anything I am interesting in becoming more computer literate to avoid future problems like this. Is this thing latching onto my IP, floating in my router, or just hard to kill? I can provide further information in a quick manner if necessary and thanks again.
