Hi,

My computer started getting antivirus 2009 pop-ups yesterday after I visited a streaming video aggregator site and clicked one of the outgoing links for a sitcom video.

I opened malware bytes and updated to the latest version and ran the scan and let it remove detected ones. Then I restarted computer and ran the scan again.

The re-scan only shows three items - avscan, userinit and sdra64.exe. Malware bytes is unable to remove these. The pop-ups have stopped now, but I want to make sure the two trojan agents are not going to create further problems. So I want to remove them too. Could someone help me?

Here is the mbam log showing these two items.

With the infection you have, I would recommend automatically moving to the HJT forum.

Please follow this guide from step (6). Post a HJT log to the HJT forum and a Team member will be along to help you as soon as possible. You may wish to post a link back to this topic to see what was discussed thus far.

If you need any help with the guide, please let me know.

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.
