okay so i had a virus on my computer that was mild, just clogging my computer with crap files and deleting old ones.
Instead of removing it i just decided it was time for a fresh slate.
So i pulled out an old program i created in high school, appropriately named NUKE MURDER KILL, which completely wipes your hard drive and then fills it up with crap data then formats(7 times) so all data is gone forever.
i re-install my fancy Windows XP PRO 2002 SP3 edition
i re-install AVG 8.5 (NOT FREE VERSION)
i re-install PeerGuardian
i re-install firefox
my poor 20gigs of hard drive say that's enough for now
okay yay i now have my computer all updated clean and happy!
one week later during my normal scan AVG finds:
"C:\WINDOWS\System32\Drivers\adptv3ba.SYS";"Hidden driver";"Object is hidden"
AWESOME!!! one week goes by and i get *&$%ed.
no worries i click the "remove selected infections"
and poof it's gone yay!
AVG ask for a reboot, i do so.
run another sacan on start up and what do you know,
"C:\WINDOWS\System32\Drivers\aert4v5s.SYS";"Hidden driver";"Object is hidden"
oh a new random .sys HMMMMMMM
i do the same thing, and again another random .sys file. TO THE INTERNET!!!
Download "SanityCheck" and run a scan it finds;
System routines are being intercepted
The module spks.sys is hooking the kernel to intercept base system services.
Information about the responsible module spks.sys -- file path: spks.sys This file is no longer available. We suggest you try to find this file in another location on your hard disk.
okay.... i don't know what that is TO THE INTERNET.......AGAIN!!!
so i find an article on this site-->>> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic143588-15.html
booMan is having the same issue as me with this damn "spks.sys"
but it says to not follow the instructions since they are user specific, so here i am!
Can you guys help me as you helped booMan?
thank you again,
