Hey all and board ops - I am new to this forum and so if I have posted incorrectly, I apologize. Last night, I believe our computer was infected with the "Antivirus Systems Pro" virus. It is very frustrating. I tried to run the rkill file and I continually get a message that says "application cannot be executed. The file regedit.exe is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus software now?" I have to this point said No.

I was finally able to get into taskmanger, as I was precluded prior by this darned program. What process is it specifically that I should kill so I can get rid of this program? Once again, if this is posted in the wrong forum I apologize.

I am really frustrated with the program!

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.

==>PLEASE DO NOT NOW POST LOGS<== unless a log is specifically requested.

Note that I have also deleted your duplicate topic on this issue posted in the XP forum. More than one topic on the same issue causes massive confusion for all involved.

Go to the Applications window of Task Manager and End All Tasks
Start a new task and type explorer.exe
Hopefully that should bring up your Desktop

Try running this:


We Need to check for Rootkits with RootRepeal
  • Download RootRepeal from the following location and save it to your desktop.
  • Extract RootRepeal.exe from the archive (If you did not use the "Direct Download" mirror).
  • Open Posted Image on your desktop.
  • Click the Posted Image tab.
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • Check all seven boxes: Posted Image
  • Push Ok
  • Check the box for your main system drive (Usually C:), and press Ok.
  • Allow RootRepeal to run a scan of your system. This may take some time.
  • Once the scan completes, push the Posted Image button. Save the log to your desktop, using a distinctive name, such as RootRepeal.txt. Include this report in your next reply, please.

----------------------------------

Please note: If Rootrepeal fails to run, try this step: Click Settings - Options. Set the Disk Access slider to High

Also try: right-click on rootrepeal.exe and rename it to tatertot.scr
