I was recently infected by some sort of spyware/malware/virus and was wondering what I should do next. I've already taken some steps to resolve/relieve the problem, as I have some experience with these sort of things. I already fixed some of the problems myself by going into safe mode and disconnecting from the internet, turning on/off system restore (as most of the files were infected anyways), running Mcafee antivirus, running sdfix, combofix, malware bytes, spybot, and a few other tools. I have the logs and can post them, but I read in the instructions not to post the log until instructed to do so. At first I had problems doing just about anything, exe's wouldn't work, internet addresses were redirected, shady processes running in the background (as witnessed in task manager), unable to use certain system tools such as regedit. I fixed all of those problems, however I'm still unable to: install certain programs (Such as SuperAntiSpyware due to administrative "policies", which leads me to believe that this program would be able to combat the infection), reactivate windows firewall (ICS service won't start), and some exe files that were originally installed are notifying me that they are "corrupt". Although I believe I'm going to have to reinstall these programs, as Mcafee shows that they are infected with a virus. I believe the immediate threat to be gone, as I originally contracted the malware it was definitely installing more bad programs onto my computer and from what I can tell this has stopped. So the situation appears to be stabilized but I just need some further help completely removing all the tid-bits that are still left.
I shall await instructions to post my logs whenever someone is here to help me
PS: I'm using Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005.
Thanks in advance!
