Yesterday Avast popped up to warn that svchost.exe was some kind of trojan or virus. So I clicked the option to delete the files and moved on.
Later I restarted the pc and my new windows xp prof install was damaged: no avast nor ad aware icons in the sys tray. No network connections: no internet browsing. The network connections list is empty.
So I started the pc with a win vista install on another disk. The avast scan found:
25/07/2009 2:04:57 1964 Sign of "Win32:Bifrose-EGW [Trj]" has been found in "D:\WINDOWS\Installer\af3198.msp" file.
After the cleaning I tried to run Malwarebytes AM on the xp install to see if it would pick up any virus that may have re-activated but now got a Runtime Error 372
"Failed to Load Control 'VbalGrid' from vbalsgrid.ocx. Your version of vbalsgrid.ocx may be outdated. Make sure you are using the version of the control that was provided with your application".
Still no avast nor ad aware icons in the sys tray. No network connections: no internet browsing. The log events in computer mngt don’t pop up on double click.
there's more wrong but decided to surf the net for info and stopped here
the hjt log hasnt been made yet.
* false positive?? http://forum.avast.com/index.php?PHPSESSID...;topic=47063.30
* hjt logs added
* safe mode with networking works,
* regedit works, but still no network connection
update 2 : sysprot log added
help fnc is not working,
props of services in services.msc gives error dependencies not found or marked for deletion,
sys restore rstrui.exe also gives an error, as well in safe mode
the sys restore tool rsdiag produces a list with 30 entries till 24/7, all with a "valid" mark
(so is there a way to force a restore on one of those points?)
