Posted 04 July 2009 - 04:45 PM

After using the virus scanners Malwarebytes, superantispyware, avira, Ad-aware, I've gotten rid of majority of the virus. Before the scannings, I had a pop up in my taskbar called AntiVirus Pro 2009. It's gone now. Now the only main symptoms I can find are that my google links are being redirected, my computer is slightly slower then before, and I cannot enter safe mode. It gives an error message, and brings me back to the f12 screen. I have a windows xp presario.

I suppose this is fairly important, Avira every once in a while gives me a notification that a virus has infected my system. I'm fairly sure this means that the virus is replicating itself.

Please be kind to me, i'm new to this forum, and given my luck, I will be here very often.

Edit: This hijacker is confusing me, this virus seems to turn itself on and off, going dormant, so i can search on google just like before, but then a about a day later, it becomes active again, and starts to create more infection and redirects my sights again.

Hello Nugai,

Some suspect files showing in these logs, so let's run a repair/scan then check after.

The logs show you have SpyHunter installed. This is currently considered as close to being rogue security software, and the software vendor's activities have suggested perhaps a bit too close a tie with the active malware community. I will need you to uninstall this through Add/Remove Programs, to keep such suspect software out of the way as we effect real repairs here. You can always reinstall it later should you feel that is necessary.

The logs also show some Pando software there. Best I could figure, as a peer-to-peer software Pando networks and uses the computers in it's P2P network to share the workload of files transfers. However, that includes any of Pando's large file transfer need paying customers, which suggests to me the free version folk's systems are being broadband taxed by these many large for-profit file transfers. Might want to reconsider keeping that software as well.

To keep them from interfering with the repairs, be sure to temporarily disable all antivirus/anti-spyware softwares while these steps are being completed. This can usually be done through right clicking the software's Taskbar icons, or accessing each software through Start - Programs.

Download ComboFix.exe from here to your desktop, but I would like you to rename the file as you download it (do not download it directly without renaming it - use right click "Save Target/Link As" ). For this, rename the downloading file to 456out.com, then click the renamed 456out.com to run that scan.

Be sure to install the Recovery Console if you are asked to do so. When the scan completes, a text window with your log will open. Please copy and paste that log back here.

A caution - do not touch your mouse/keyboard until the scan has completed. The scan will temporarily disable your desktop, and if interrupted may leave your desktop disabled. If this occurs, please reboot to restore the desktop.

Allow the scan to run. When completed a text window will appear - please copy/paste the contents back here. This log can also be found at C:\ComboFix.txt.
