Hello,


I got a fairly nasty trojan last night. I was on Mininova.com looking for a torrent and Avast alerted me that it had found something(rootkit) i think. When I tried to follow the recomended action, it shut down Avast and contimues to do so everytime I try to restart it and the computer. A little red circle with an "x" going through it originally popped up at the bottom right of my screen. It is gone now but every anti spyware and other helpful programs start but get shut down everytime I try to run any of them...SUPERAnti-virus, Hijackthis, Avast, Malwarebytes....Its crazy........It keeps trying to auto install AntiSpy Protector 2009....I keep clicking the close button before it can install......Any help would be great!!

After reading a post by admin(Grinler) in the latest news section.... I figure I have AntiSpy Protector 2009 + Rootkit....

This is a laptop running XP Professional

Hello.

Let's try this:

Please install RootRepeal
Note: Vista users ,, right click on desktop icon and select "Run as Administrator."Disconnect from the Internet or physically unplug your Internet cable connection.
Close all open programs, scheduling/updating tasks and background processes that might activate during the scan including the screensaver.
Temporarily disable your anti-virus and real-time anti-spyware protection.
After starting the scan, do not use the computer until the scan has completed.
When finished, re-enable your anti-virus/anti-malware (or reboot) and then you can reconnect to the Internet.
  • Extract RootRepeal.exe from the zip archive.
  • Open Posted Image on your desktop.
  • Click the "Drivers" tab, and then click the Posted Image button.
  • Allow RootRepeal to run a scan of your system. This may take some time.
  • Once the scan completes, push the Posted Image button. Save the log to your desktop, using a distinctive name, such as RootRepeal.txt. Include this report in your next reply, please.
