Anyways, I contracted a few viruses the other day from a bad program, and, while AVG assured me that it had blocked them and several scans turned up nothing, I wasn't so assured. Nevertheless, after it blocked several communications attempts and other such things, I turned off my internet and did some scanning. With ctrl+alt+delete, I stopped some clearly fishy processes, located their sources to files that had been updated that night (around 2-3 AM, the 28th) and got rid of those.
Still not convinced, I surfed around to look up some of the viruses. The next morning (this morning) my computer started blocking more viruses again, so it didn't seem like I'd gotten them all. Nevertheless, after some more of the same conduct as above (scanning and deletion), I wound up getting Combofix, uninstalling AVG, turning off the web and running that.
After that, it deleted a few files. I had to turn on internet in order to fetch AVG again. It says not to post combofix results unless asked to, but I have those if they would help. I would appreciate it if they could be reviewed.
Specifically, I would like it if somebody could aid me in determining whether or not I've gotten my computer cleaned... obviously this post doesn't have enough information as is, so I await your insights and requests (even if it's just asking to see the log)
Other relevant details would include that I have had a previous infection which I believe that I quelled with avast, but after avast got an update, it has since ceased running on my computer, providing the following message:
"C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast5\AbastUI.exe
The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application log for more details."
I'm not as concerned about that, as I plan on reinstalling and looking into that separately, but I figure the more detail the better.
Here's a screenshot of AVG's virusvault:
Thanks for your time.
