I am new to the forums, and new to this websites protocols, so please let me know if I am doing anything wrong

So Ive been searchign the internet for hours on how to get rid of this virus. I am not to computer "savvy" but I do have some general knowledge.

Im running Windows XP with rogers online protection (norton)
I downloaded malware bytes anti malware.

So basically a couple days ago, I turned on my computer, then noticed that the day before my recycle bin had been empty so why are there things on it now. So I open it up, and I see that there is a couple files that are titled rb13.tmp and rb14.tmp . I delete them thinking nothing of it because they say 0 kb. I come back later, turn the computer back on, and they have somehow "respawned" in the recycle bin.

So I run a scan with norton. nothing found.
I then Download advanced system protecter. I scaned. nothing found
I downloaded malware bytes anti malware. I scaned . nothing found

So I Search rb14.tmp on the internet. I find that its part of a recycler virus. Now im stuck, there is hardly anything that says how to delete it without wiping my computer, which I have no time to do because I have a huge biology paper to write!

Someone please, anyone, does anyone know how to rid me of this!

Hello

I see that you have an HJT log posted here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/271618/i-have-a-recycler-virus-please-help/

We do not allow more than one topic for the same computer and the same issue as this causes confusion, and in this case may make the disinfection process more difficult.

This leaves you with a choice:

1) Have this thread reopened and the HiJack This log topic deleted

OR


2) Keep this thread closed and wait for assistance in the HiJack This log forum. Please note that that forum is VERY busy.

Please send a Private Message indicating your choice.

Assuming you wish assistance in the HiJack This forum, 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 continue to 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, 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 because the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

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

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
