I have just signed up to this forum site.
I have contracted some sort of virus on Monday night (7 Sep 09 - around 8pm Australian Eastern Standard time). I have run various antivirus software programs including:
- AVG free
- Windows Defender
- Malicious software removal tool (which is now infected and cannot be removed)
- Malwarebytes antimalware
- ESET NOD32
I did all this because when I attempted to run an antivirus program the virus shut down the program or would skip over the files in the WINDOWS folder. I have tried to scan the folders remotely via my home network, but the scan only takes minutes (rather than the usual 1.5-2 hours) and skips over many files. Popup windows keep occuring if I am connected to the internet, so I have disconnected it from the internet now (I am using my netbook to write this). If you require more information, just let me know...
My last resort has been to run the combofix program listed on this website. Only after running the program did I realise that I have nowhere to post the log report. The combofix page listed here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix
has a link of where to post the log here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/
but it says posts are only for hijackthis and only for combofix when instructed.
Please help. I am not very tech savvy, and my boyfriend is only a little tech savvy (he has done all the work mentioned above). Any suggestions are welcome.
Thanks in advance!
