I run Win XP with SP2
I went to sleep, and woke up with 7 alerts about 3 different trojans. So, one by one, I would ask AVG to put them in the virus vault.
The culprits are:
Crypt.HSM (which made copies of itself as a.exe, b.exe and c.exe)
Only Crypt.HSM was a recurring problem because of the copies that I was unaware of. After moving them to the V-Vault, I couldnt help but feel a little vulnerable to the Sheur2 trojans - which seem....a little too quiet.
After some consultation from someone much more well versed in technology - I was directed to Spyware Doctor, HijackThis, and here.
First, I ran a log of HijackThis, and my friend saw some suspicious items - confirming my fears.
I then ran Spyware Doctor - and it came up with 4 threats and 92 infections (no mention of my trojans, but 32 reports of trojans.FakeAlert). I want to rid myself of these, but there doesn't seem to be a free program to just make these files disappear! I am an amateur in meddling with the insides of my computer - and have no way of paying through the internet. I don't want to have them annoying me again.
Should I post the HijackThis log here?
Sorry if I'm not following the regular protocol
