Hi guys,

I need help. I managed to remove most of the AntivirusLive virus using the tutorial in this forum. It was absolutely lovely.
But being paranoid, as I don't want it tracking me when I'm using banking on9 apps and stuff, I decided to run a check once more.

So, after running the check using search results, I searched for "sysguards". I ensured that all hidden folders would show up as well and FOUR items turned up.

Now, when I was first infected with the AntivirusLive virus, I opened the properties of one of the window popup boxes, and it showed me the location which had a weird name, with "kaka" in front. Weird right?

After having removed Antivirus, and running the Search on sysguards, the Search Results displayed four items including the words SYSGUARDS. and all of them had this particular term in thier names: "eonosysguard". The first three had "kaka" infront as well, and the last one is a pf file.

I have no idea what this is. So if someone can tell me whether or not its malicious and I should delete it, or is it a normal window program which I should leave be.

Please let me know asap, as I'd like to ensure that my computer is entirely free off the virus.

Thank you very much!

I would believe them to be suspect.

Rerun MBAM (MalwareBytes) like this:

Open MBAM in normal mode and click Update tab, select Check for Updates,when done
click Scanner tab,select Quick scan and scan (normal mode).
After scan click Remove Selected, Post new scan log and Reboot into normal mode.


Next run ATF and SAS: If you cannot access Safe Mode,run in normal ,but let me know.

Note: On Vista, "Windows Temp" is disabled. To empty "Windows Temp" ATF-Cleaner must be "Run as an Administrator".

From your regular user account..
Download Attribune's ATF Cleaner and then SUPERAntiSpyware , Free Home Version. Save both to desktop ..
DO NOT run yet.
Open SUPER from icon and install and Update it
Under Scanner Options make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):
Close browsers before scanning.
Scan for tracking cookies.
Terminate memory threats before quarantining
.
Click the "Close" button to leave the control center screen and exit the program. DO NOT run yet.

Now reboot into Safe Mode: How to enter safe mode(XP)
Using the F8 Method

Then press enter on your keyboard to boot into Safe Mode
.

Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.

Click the Empty Selected button.

If you use Firefox or Opera browser click that browser at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.

Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program
.

NOW Scan with SUPER
Open from the desktop icon or the program Files list
On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
Perform a Complete scan. After scan,Verify they are all checked.
Click OK on the summary screen to quarantine all found items.
If asked if you want to reboot, click "Yes" and reboot normally.

To retrieve the removal information after reboot, launch SUPERAntispyware again.
Click Preferences, then click the Statistics/Logs tab.
Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
If there are several logs, click the current dated log and press View log.
A text file will open in your default text editor.
