A pleasant morning to all of you.

Wanting to post a hijackthis log in the forum, I went through some guidelines and read them.

I learned that I should download a certain file, dds.scr. Having followed all the steps cited, I could not proceed because I could not run the file. So I checked some site and learned that I might have registry errors or have the inappropriate programs installed.---.SCR details I opened the file using command prompt but a message said "It is not a valid system32 file".

Windows can't open .SCR files?
If Windows is unable to open files with the extension .SCR you may not have the appropriate program installed or, you may have registry errors.


Regarding my antivirus, I had a whole computer scan with the trial version of avg 8.5. It detected lots of virus but I have fixed them all.

That is why I posted here. I'm afraid I posted on the wrong forum. Please guide me fellows. Thanks!

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (v1.36) and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
If you have a previous version of MBAM, remove it via Add/Remove Programs and download a fresh copy.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.
  • Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install. Alternatively, you can update through MBAM's interface from a clean computer, copy the definitions (rules.ref) located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from that system to a usb stick or CD and then copy it to the infected machine.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.

Do you mean restart the computer when you say reboot? Just for clarification.

Understood sir.

By the way, the scan is in progress(and there are already 13 objects infected!) and i think this will really take long so i guess i should have a nap first.

I'll post again as soon as the scan finishes.

Thanks sir DaChew!

Ughh!

I could not open the website. In firefox it says, "Waiting for technet.microsoft.com" and the loading bar seems not to load at all. I also tried to open it through internet explorer but it says "Website found. Waiting for reply" and the loading bar loads about half but seems not to progress at all.

What should i do?

Thanks!


EDIT:

I am also experiencing this with some other sites.

Try again, if the site is being blocked we'll need to use a clean computer and a usb drive to transfer.

You can use this procedure to protect the clean computer and a usb drive from being infected

Please download Flash_Disinfector.exe by sUBs and save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click Flash_Disinfector.exe to run it and follow any prompts that may appear.
  • The utility may ask you to insert your flash drive and/or other removable drives. Please do so and allow the utility to clean up those drives as well.
  • Hold down the Shift key when inserting the drive until Windows detects it to keep autorun.inf from executing if it is present.
  • Wait until it has finished scanning and then exit the program.
  • Reboot your computer when done.
Note: As part of its routine, Flash_Disinfector will create a hidden folder named autorun.inf in each partition and every USB drive that was plugged in when you ran it. Do not delete this folder...it will help protect your drives from future infection by keeping the autorun file from being installed on the root drive and running other malicious files.
