Greetings

I have attached DDS files. I have been having problems with my computer for the last month. I have successfully removed the virut virus but continue to have warning about varying things.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. I am still receiving warnings from AVG about the VRT.tmp through a trojan Generic13.VKL

this is the DDS.txt log

Hi fishfinger,

Welcome to BC HijackThis forum. I am farbar. I'm afraid I've got bad news.

Virut is one of the nastiest file infectors:

Virut is a polymorphic file infector with some additional features. It spreads all around the drive and infects even files infected by another virus previously. The only symptoms are a strange HDD activity while infecting, and also unwanted TCP traffic. Virut tries to connect you into an IRC network under the user name "Virtu" and zombify you. Unfortunately, the cleaning of this virus is very difficult or almost impossible.

The virus remains resident in memory and infects executable files with ".EXE" and ".SCR" file extensions.


It's damage to the system is almost beyond repair as it disables Windows File Protection:

The virus disables Windows File Protection by injecting code into the "winlogon.exe" process that patches system code in memory.

Therefore all those running processes are most probably now the virus agent.

The only fast and safe answer to the virus is reformatting and reinstalling windows. You may backup non-executable (data) files and reformat the entire hard drive.
