Let's try scanning with Dr. Web.

If you cannot access the internet from the infected computer, you can save this to a CD and copy it to the infected computer. You DO NOT need to be connected to the internet to use Dr. Web. Just to download it. You probably do not want to use a flash drive as the virus has an autorun.inf attached to it.

Please download Dr.Web CureIt, the free version & save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.

Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Scan with Dr.Web CureIt as follows:
  • Double-click on launch.exe to open the program and click Start. (There is no need to update if you just downloaded the most current version
  • Read the Virus check by DrWeb scanner prompt and click Ok where asked to Start scan now? Allow the setup.exe to load if asked by any of your security programs.
  • The Express scan will automatically begin.
  • (This is a short scan of files currently running in memory, boot sectors, and targeted folders).
  • If prompted to dowload the Full version Free Trial, ignore and click the X to close the window.
  • If an infected object is found, you will be prompted to move anything that cannot be cured. Click Yes to All.
  • When complete, click Select All, then choose Cure > Move incurable.
  • (This will move any detected files to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if they can't be cured)
  • Now put a check next to Complete scan to scan all local disks and removable media.
  • In the top menu, click Settings > Change settings, and UNcheck "Heuristic analysis" under the "Scanning" tab, then click Ok.
  • Back at the main window, click the green arrow "Start Scanning" button on the right under the Dr.Web logo.
  • When the scan is complete, a message will be displayed at the bottom indicating if any viruses were found.
  • Click "Yes to all" if asked to cure or move the file(s) and select "Move incurable".
  • In the top menu, click file and choose save report list.
  • Save the DrWeb.csv report to your desktop.
  • Exit Dr.Web Cureit when done.
  • Important! Reboot your computer because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
  • After reboot, post the contents of the log from Dr.Web in your next reply. (You can use Notepad to open the DrWeb.cvs report)

hi,
Thanks for your reply. I did the Dr.Web scan. The express scan uncoverd no viruses. The total scan showed up 2viruses (which were actually not mabezat, i had tried spybot which may have removed them).
The problem is that my computer will only allow me to surf the net now for about 5 mins at a time...
It comes up that the web page is inaccessible even though the router is on and when i check wireless networks it tells me i am still connected...
The report from Dr. Web is as follows;
AOO24714.old:C\SystemVolumeInformation\_restore{6F75128E-2754-4B6C-846A-F57D98F8657}\RP68;Win32.HLLW.Tazebama;Cured.;

A0025000.rbf;C:\SystemVolumeInformation\_restore{6F75128E-2754-4B6C-846A-F57D98F8657}\RP68;Win32.HLLW.Tazebama;Cured.;

O'm not sure why the internet keeps going off like this when all the wireless connections seem fine??

Thanks in advance :thumbsup:

Could you please give me the results of IPCONFIG /ALL

Click on Start then Run. Type "CMD" ( without the quotes of course )

When you see the black screen with a cursor blinking, please type "ipconfig /all" ( without the quotes once again ).

You will get a listing of quite a few numbers. I'm looking for the results for Wireless Connection:. Specifically under that connection I'm looking for the results for Default Gateway and DNS Servers.

Please "X" out any other numbers.

Ok. Those are for an ISP in France.

One more thing from the IPCONFIG /ALL

Specifically can you tell me if it says: DHCP Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : Yes

I would like you to go here and read and follow the instructions on how to update/replace your "HOSTS" file.

Please perform a scan with Eset Onlinescan (NOD32).
(Requires Internet Explorer to work. If given the option, choose "Quarantine" instead of delete.)
Vista Users be sure to run Internet Explorer as Administrator. To do this, right-click on the IE icon in the Start Menu or Quick Launch Bar on the Taskbar and select "Run as Administrator" from the context menu.
  • You will see the Terms of Use. Tick the check-box in front of YES, I accept the Terms of Use
  • Now click Start.
  • You may receive an alert on the address bar that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Install ActiveX component.
  • A new window will appear asking "Do you want to install this software?" (OnlineScanner.cab)".
  • Answer Yes to install and download the ActiveX controls that allows the scan to run.
  • Click Start.(the Onlinescanner will now prepare itself for running on your pc)
  • To do a full-scan, check: "Remove found threats" and "Scan potentially unwanted applications"
  • Press Scan to start the online scan. (this could take some time to complete)
  • When the scan has finished, it will show a screen with two tabs "overview" and "details" and the option to get information or buy software. Just close the window.
  • Now click Start > Run... > type: C:\Program Files\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt
  • The scan results will open in Notepad.
  • Copy and paste the log results in your next reply.
Note: Some online scanners will detect existing anti-virus software and refuse to cooperate. You may have to disable the real-time protection components of your existing anti-virus and try running the scan again. If you do this, remember to turn\ them back on after you are finished
