Hi

I just noticed a small box that is appearing on my screen with the phrase 'Bot Not Crypted' I have Windows Vista. Is this message anything to worry about?

Thanks

Hi there, thanks for replying, having a few problems with HijackThis. I tried to run it and get this message

"For some reason your system denied write access to the Hosts file. If any hijacked domains are in this file , HijackThis may NOT be able to fix this.

If that happens, you need to edit the file yourself. To do this click Start. Run and type: notepad C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts

and press Enter. Find the line(s) HijackThis reports and delete them. Save the file as 'hosts' with quotes, and reboot.

For Vista: simply, exit HijackThis right click on the HijackThis icon, choose 'Run as administrator'."

As a vista use i came out and right clicked it but no option appeared to run as administrator. Also HijackThis did not produce a log in notepad. Plus unfortunately there was no O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [{2F2D4EB4-FC49-C869-539D-00E52FE52F03}] in the list produced by HijackThis.

Thanks for your reply, sadly it looks like im one of the first people to get this virus. I would be grateful for any assistance no matter how simple it may sound.

David

Are you logged into your system with an admin account?

Professorbed, please read the pinned sticky How do I get help? Who is helping me?

I have moved (split away) your log to the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum as they are not permitted in this forum.

Please go here, click on the Options button in the upper right corner of that thread and choose Track this topic. Subscribe to that topic to ensure you are notified when a helper replies.

Now that your log is posted, 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 Malware Response Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it 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 Malware Response 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 Malware Response Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have posted your log and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your post or make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Response 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 Malware Response Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
