Although this is my first post here, I'd consider myself somewhat of a geek and very comfortable in dealing with computer issues. I'm not sure exactly how I stepped in 'PC Antispyware 2010' the other night, but whatever the case, it's led to a deluge of other garbage, which has brought me here.
As soon as the bugger began to pop up annoyingly, I ripped my ethernet cable out of the computer and disabled any wireless connections, then logged onto my laptop and pulled up as much info as possible. After renaming MBAM and then running MBAM I was able to seemingly get the gunk that was popping up in my system tray.
However, after uninstalling AVG Free to install ESET NOD32 AV4, more gunk was found (good news, I thought). For good measure, I thought it best to run MBAM and ESET a couple of times (not simultaneously, of course) and to my dismay, MBAM came back with the following:
It said that it would delete them upon a reboot, but to no avail.
ESET on its startup scanner came back with a little treat in its memory scan -- the first few times it was simply Win32/Agent.ODG virus, but then later it was listed as Win32/Rootkit.Agent.ODG trojan. Does this imply that the severity of the bug actually increased in the time I was scanning, etc.?
After reading other cases much too similar to this one to ignore, I decided to follow the advice previously given and downloaded and ran ComboFix. ComboFix found several more UAC*.??? files and subsequently deleted/quarantined them. Now I just need some help on the ComboFix log, and also to know what's next. After ComboFix ran its course, I re-ran ESET, which did not find the memory issue it did previously, so I'm not sure what to make of that. It did, however find just a couple of the 6 or so quarantined files in the Qoobox folder - the UAC*.??? files, which seem to be linked to Win32/Olmarik.KI and Win32/Olmarik.HI.
I will wait to post the ComboFix log until requested to do so. . .
Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide!
