Hello,

I got a bad case of the trojan horse sheur2.aqub virus tonight. I was able to clean the infection from system (I think) using AVG Free, Super Antispyware as well Spybot S&D. After reboot, I can run a clean check with all check now.

The problem is that it looks like the virii has made various changes to my registry, like group policy changes, and expolorer lockouts and such. I have managed to clean some of them up (I can now run regedit). I am wondering if there is a known list of changes that this infection makes so that I can reverse them?

DDS runs, but complains "Not enough main memory to complete the sort" three times within the two minutes than just sits there. I let it sit there for about an hour before I killed it. I tried turning off Super Antispyware, and turning the avg resident shield off, but that did not help with DDS.

Please let me know what I can provide by hand?

Thanks.

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.

If you cannot get DDS to work, please try this instead.

Please download RSIT by random/random and save it to your Desktop.
Note: You will need to run this tool while connected to the Internet so it can download HijackThis if it is not located on your system. If you get a warning from your firewall or other security programs regarding Rist attempting to contact the Internet, please allow the connection.
  • Close all applications and windows so that you have nothing open and are at your Desktop.
  • Double-click on RSIT.exe to start the program.
  • If using Windows Vista, be sure to Run As Administrator.
  • Click Continue after reading the disclaimer screen.
  • Leave the drop down box set to default: "List/folders created or modified in the last 1 month (30 days).
  • When the scan is complete, a text file named log.txt will automatically open in Notepad.
  • Save the log file to your desktop and copy/paste the contents into a new topic in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, NOT here.
Important: Be sure to mention that you tried to follow the Prep Guide but were unable to get DDS to run.
If RSIT did not work, then reply back here.
