First Hi I'm new to the forums, registering because of my problem.

Now I'm usually very carefully and NEVER download anything expect updates for games or Windows etc. However I wanted to check my computer temperatures, specifically my MCP temperature, and the best program for that is Everest, my trial period had ran out so I wanted a key, like an idiot I downloaded a file and it infected me.

I did remove 1 or 2 of the files that were infecting me 1 called wuauclt with a goofy description (something like OjoIJibIOoijOIJ) and another I cant remember, basically trying to fake actual Windows files. I then went into MSConfig and looked at the startup and noticed there were 2 unknown items, regedit32 and syncman. I un-clicked them, on restart after i scanned and AV said it did remove some syncman was still not ticked but regedit32 was.

regedit32 was in system32 folder under regedit.exe - however I was/am unable to find the file.

syncman was in same place under wuaucldt and I was unable to find and remove them myself.

So I ran Microsoft Security Essentials and it said it did remove some but not all, then I came onto the forum and looked at some posts and saw they said download Malwarebytes so I did and ran it and its removed about 6 or so viruses and now says I'm free of viruses, however in MSConfig the regedit32 and syncman are still there, not ticked but still there and was wondering if I'm still infected?

Thank you very much.

Edit. And just to say, there are no more strange processes running in task manager now like before, but I am still concerned I may be infected due to the items still in the startup config (but unchecked maybe they are just their as history?)

Heres my log

Please download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free
  • Double-click SUPERAntiSypware.exe and use the default settings for installation.
  • An icon will be created on your desktop. Double-click that icon to launch the program.
  • If it will not start, go to Start > All Prgrams > SUPERAntiSpyware and click on Alternate Start.
  • If asked to update the program definitions, click "Yes". If not, update the definitions before scanning by selecting "Check for Updates". (If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here. Double-click on the hyperlink for Download Installer and save SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to your desktop. Then double-click on SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to install the definitions.)
  • In the Main Menu, click the Preferences... button.
  • Click the "General and Startup" tab, and under Start-up Options, make sure "Start SUPERAntiSpyware when Windows starts" box is unchecked.
  • Click the "Scanning Control" tab, and 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 a scan just 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 SUPERAntiSpyware as follows:
  • Launch the program and back on the main screen, under "Scan for Harmful Software" click Scan your computer.
  • On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
  • On the right, under "Complete Scan", choose Perform Complete Scan and click "Next".
  • After the scan is complete, a Scan Summary box will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click "OK".
  • Make sure everything has a checkmark next to it and click "Next".
  • A notification will appear that "Quarantine and Removal is Complete". Click "OK" and then click the "Finish" button to return to the main menu.
  • 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.
    • Please copy and paste the Scan Log results in your next reply.
  • Click Close to exit the program.
If you have a problem downloading, installing or getting SAS to run, try downloading and using the SUPERAntiSpyware Portable Scanner instead. Save the randomly named file (i.e. SAS_1710895.COM) to a usb drive or CD and transfer to the infected computer. Then double-click on it to launch and scan. The file is randomly named to help keep malware from blocking the scanner.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
