Last night one of my PCs got a trojan infection. Avast identified the trojan as W32:Fraudo. There was also a rootkit, I believe it was Bravia.exe.

I ran MBAM, deleted most of the files. I then ran combofix.exe, allowed it to update and download files, and then it went through the standard removal process. Before running, it wartned me that the recovery console didn't completely get installed and did I want to removed viruses anyways. I answered yes like the web tutorial says to. After completing all of the virus removal phases, it instructed me that it was going to reboot, and it did.

When it came back up, It started crowing about NTLDR and Hal.dll. Suck.

Any clue what to do here? Does anyone know where I can download a reliable copy of an XP Home hal.dll?

Thanks for any help you can give me. I was hopeful that some hasty treatment with MBAM and combofix was going to yield good results.

Thanks.

Not that anyone even saw this, but I resolved it by rebuilding the boot.ini file using the bootcfg program.

Feel free to close if necessary.
