My free AVG picked up a trojan rooted in my application data / macromedia folder last night. Now after a few minutes to half an hour my netbook grinds to a half, slowly windows stop functioning then the mouse stops working.

I have run MBAM, ATF and SAS as described in other posts. It seems MBAM picked up the malware packer / hijack.sound and quarantined it, but the problem still exists. Please find below my log files:

Thanks. I'd really rather not have to do a clean install of XP since I have a netbook w/o optical drive.

Just an update - I've restored my netbook to factory settings which involved formatting my hard drive. However, now both safari and firefox freeze after downloading more than 5mb, and my Page File usage gets quite high (almost 1gb) and CPU usage is almost always at 90%. Note this is after a fresh install of XP with only AVG, Firefox and Safari installed.

Can Malware exist across a reinstall of windows?

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/279854/unknown-cause-of-freezes/ 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 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, up to two weeks 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 as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

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