So,I did a Kaspersky scan,and it came up with this threat.It's got onto my computer despite me having an up to date Avast! antivirus scanner,and resident protection.I know where it's came from,which was a download link for a game.

I've seen someone else on this forum who has been infected with it-I found this place through a google search,using the name-but I just wanted to make sure that I was doing this right,so I decided I'd better make a new topic for my own infection,just in case following the instructions given to the other guy was for his computer.Gah,this is annoying.

Thank you in advance for any and all help :thumbsup:

EDIT:Since I realised I'd never said the thread where I'd seen someone else with the same problem,it's here

I have had the same one, if its not too bad if it hasn't gotten far. i would restart your computer in safe mode with networking and download Malwarebytes anti-malware, and Spybot S&D. Update and scan. If you can scan in regular mode i would, since the programs cannpt finish everything in safe mode. If you have problems with those programs make sure to post the error messages, and your OS, version and service pack.

Hope it helps!

Okay,here's the update.Spybot and malwarebytes both will download,update,and run for a bit fine.Then they will very quickly disappear,and I can't open them again.If I do try and open them,I will get the following message: 'Windows cannot access the specified device,path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the items.'

It does the same if I attempt to open up Avast! antivirus

I'm running windows XP,service pack 3

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/256475/trojan-spywin32agentazpj/ you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days, up to two weeks perhaps less, to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
