Hi, i've picked up a virus in the last couple of days and now my computer is full of malware. I receive pop-up messages that my pc is infected by TrojanSPM/LX and things such as my desktop background turns into a warning message. I've tried running adaware and followed intructions using SmitFraudFix all to no avail. Now the System Security virus has come into play as well so the situation is getting worse. Is there any programs that will delete this malware or steps i can follow? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ok.. Looking at log, I would advised you to start backup all of your valuable data/documents/pictures/movies/songs/etc.. Do NOT backup any applications/installer and Do NOT backup any .exe/.scr/.htm/.html/.xml/.zip/.rar/.pif/.asp/.php/.iso files... We are looking for possible Virut or Sality infection, and if it is.. Then you might have to wipe the machine clean..

Make sure you back-up everything ONLY via CD or DVD (non-rewritable).. If you need to backup into external hard drive or thumbdrive, make sure it is EMPTY.. Meaning NO FILE inside it.. Format the external drive first before attach it to the infected computer.. A single .exe file inside the external drive may infected other computers as well


Lets do a scan to verify whether the computer indeed has Virut or Sality


Please download Dr.Web CureIt to the Desktop:
  • Double-click the launch.exe or cureit.exe file and Allow to run the express scan
  • This will scan the files currently running in memory and when something is found, click the yes button when it asks you if you want to cure it. This is only a short scan.
  • Once the short scan has finished, just let it cure whatever it finds...
    • Now, go to Settings >> Change Settings
    • Go to Actions tab >> under Objects section, change the settings to below
      • Infected objects - Cure
        Incurable objects - Report
        Suspicious objects - Report
    • Don't change any other settings
  • Start the scan again. This time, choose Complete Scan
  • Click the green arrow button at the right, and the scan will start.
  • After the scan finished, click Select all
  • Click on Cure and choose Report incurable (means take no actions.. Don't "move", or "rename" or "delete")
  • When the scan has finished, in the menu, click File and choose Save report list
  • Save the report to your Desktop. The report will be called DrWeb.csv
  • Post DrWeb.csv in your next reply (Open it as Notepad).. Do NOT reboot the computer yet..

Keep calm, make it simple, use your brain, don't freak out, and you'll be just fine..

Thanks for getting back to me. Luckily for me i'd backed up most of my data before getting infected. Just finished off backing up the rest. I d-loaded Dr.Web CureIt but everytime it tried to carry out a scan it came up with an application error popup saying setup.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. The pc is pretty messed up now with popups and application errors all over the place. Wiping the machine clean may be the best option unless there's anything else you'd like to try? I appreciate your help on this.

Nope..

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [reader_s] C:\WINDOWS\System32\reader_s.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [reader_s] C:\Documents and Settings\Fiona\reader_s.exe


Those entries are dropper for Win32 Virut.. Here's an excerpt from a malware expert, sUBs..

Virut is not disinfectable. Your only option is to perform a full reformat. Do NOT attempt a repair install. It shall be a waste of time. If you do so, the infected executables remain on the machine & you shall likely trigger another bout of Virut.

If you do not know how to perform a fresh install, use this website > http://www.windowsreinstall.com/

Note: If you have to backup files, do so only for MS Office documents & any non executable file. Burn them to CD/DVD. Do NOT copy files from the infected machine to your pendrive OR another machine. You risk infecting the other machine.


full reformat means, format on ALL partitions..

Please backup everything and format your hard disk all partition in one pass.. I'll let this topic open until you successfully format the computer

Keep calm, make it simple, use your brain, don't freak out, and you'll be just fine..

I will now close this topic. If you need this topic to be re-open, please pm me or Moderators regarding the matter..

If you have any new malware related questions or issues in the future please start a new topic.

Cheers and Happy Computing !
