Last night i recieved this program pop-up on my pc and i accidently downloaded it and since then my pc is all screwed up. The program is called Personal Antivirus. I first tried to remove the program from the Add/Remove programs list but it is not even in there. So a friend told me to run a combofix log and send it in. I downloaded and ran a combofix log which i have for someone to look at. The Personal Antivirus program keeps popping up notifications saying "your system is infected with version of Trojan.Win32.Agent.azsy." Then another pop-up comes up now and then saying something about malicious spyware found that is believed to be linked to people that hack your computer and steal your passwords. I swept my computer multiple times with Spy Sweeper and it identified Personal Antivirus as a big threat so i deleted it but that did not stop the problem or delete the program. I have Windows XP on my computer and have Internet Explorer 8. It is not letting me post my screenshots of the popups so this is what they say:

"your system is infected with version of Trojan.Win32.Agent.azsy. This malicious program is a Trojan. It is a Windows PE EXE. Once launced, the Trojan copies its body to the current user's Windows startup directory and attempts to steal passowords from Int"

and the second one says "Internet Explorers Shockwave Flash vs.3 found to be linking to the FormSpy website hosted at IP address and installing FormSpy using an old VBS/Psyme exploit targeting Internet explorer. These websites are believed to have been penetrated and modified by hackers. VBS/Psyme can be detected proactively in Internet Explorer (IE). This is a detection for a malaware that was discovered in the wild on July 24, 2009 (PST). Its Installer was proactively detected as New Malaware.ag (Now Downloader-AXM). This addon tries to send your private information to attackers IP"

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.

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. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.
  • 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 definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
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. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
  • Exit MBAM when done.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
