Posted 30 September 2009 - 10:02 PM

I am about to re-install windows on my system after recovering from a backdoor trojan and a worm that has caused (what seems to be) some registry problems in my system. (When I "open" a folder it will try to open, then fail and close and relaunch at such a high speed at times its like looking at a strobe light on the computer screen. But if I "explore" a folder it works wonderfully.) Malwarebytes, Eset and Spybot say I'm good to go. I am enclosing those logs as well. I have heard that if you don't completely clean your system before reinstall the virus can get deeper into the system, and after discovering that I had a backdoor trojan that was logging all of my keystrokes I've been "scared straight" so to speak, lol. So I want to do this right.

The following are my logs from Hijack this, Malwarebytes, and RootRepeal.

:( If you'd like an ESET or Kapersky scan let me know, I know where/how to do that, and I can submit those as well. No further symptoms other than the folder problem. My desktop does tend to "refresh" itself a lot more on start up not sure if that is a sign of anything (?) Started researching Vundo (aka Virtumonde.com) and re-spooked myself :( lol.
