Hi guys I posted a post in "HijackThis Logs and Virus/Trojan/Spyware/Malware Removal" named Personal protector on 13/12 and couldn't find out how to edit it. Today I done a few things to try and get rid of it, here are the results so far and steps taken, but need help to make sure it's gone
I had no icons on desktop and couldn't open or run anything.
I removed 2 files in safe mode

add/remove programs ---------- Personal Protector
deleted from c:\ docs and settings\allusers\ ----------microsoft P Data

i then rebooted normally and got my desktop back, I immediately ran a full scan with MBytes which found this, cant find it in mbytes now(neither in log or quarrantine)

PProtector.exe

I then ran Trendmicro housecall
quick scan found
file
42F ------------------------ TROJ AGENT.AWTV
930 ------------------------ TROJ AGENT.AXHP
winscent ------------------------ MAL FAKEAV-9
Full scan found

BB5_UN~EXE ---- HACKING BE97E9F5
BB5_UN .ZIP ---- " " " " "


ALL THESE I HAD FIXED
I still have no taskmanager which the virus was killing so I imagine I've still got traces
any help would be greatly appreciated
thanks

I merged your posts into one topic in HJT...

Now that your log is properly posted, 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 it 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 very 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.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
