Hi guys, I've got a Vaio S4XP running Windows XP Pro. Ran the Sony Recovery Tool earlier this week, to restore factory settings. All done, I went and added SP3. No probs.

Today, when installing .net framework (3.5) Google Chrome stopped working (application failed to initialise). May be incompatability with .net 3.5, may be because, at the same time, I installed some malware in error.

Norton antvirus has been telling me the windows logon utility is requesting internet access. HiJackThis highlighted a new entry, sdra64.exe. I tried to remove it using the "ok changes in regedit JUST before shutdown timer completes after requesting svchost be terminated" technique, but haven't managed to do it yet.

So, whilst chrome is failing to initialise, I've been using IE7, with about 50% of links clicked failing. Google suggest this may be a clicker.c? virus.

About to combofix, but getting the error about Virut? So any advice most appreciated! Know HJT, but please explain any other acronyms!

Have read guides about forums, so will await advice from experts before posting HJT logs or running comboFix.
Thanks in advance
Jonny the newbie.

  • Open that file in Notepad and copy/paste the entire contents (from Starting up... to Finished! Press any key to exit...) in your next reply.
