Posted 20 August 2010 - 03:03 AM

When I turned on my PC this morning, my AVG notified me that my PC have multiple threats. It says that I have been infected with virus/malware identified as Win32/Patched.FM and Win32/Patched.FL. Unfortunately, my AVG can't remove both virus because it says that the objects infected are "critical system file that should not be removed". I am using windows XP atm.

The Win32/Patched.FM affected my c:\\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exe whereas the Win32/Patched.FL affected my c:\\WINDOWS\explorer.exe

Here is a result of my DDS:

Good evening. smile.gif

Take a trip to this webpage for download links and instructions for running Combofix by sUBs.*
  • Please be aware that this tool may require the PC to be rebooted so close any programs you have open before you start.
  • When CF has finished, it will produce a log - C:\ComboFix.txt - copy and paste it into your next reply.
  • Let me know how the PC is behaving.
* There are two points to note from the instructions page:

1) The Recovery Console.

It is recommended that you install this as, in certain circumstances, it may be the difference between a successful repair and a reformat. If you are uncertain as to whether or not you already have the Recovery Console installed, simply run CF and it will prompt you if it does not detect it.
CF will complete some, but not all, of it's removal tasks without the installation of the Console so, should you choose not to allow the installation, you may not get the results you hoped for.

2) Disabling your Anti-Virus.

CF has been the victim of false-positive detections on occasion and a resident AV may incorrectly identify and delete part of the tool which won't do it much good. If you don't disable your AV, you may not get the results you hoped for either.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

Hi Noviciate,

Thank you for the reply! Unfortunately over the weekend I was so frustrated that I followed some forum's solution which is to download and scan my PC with 3 different anti-malwares which are the MBAM, SuperAntispyware, and Ad-Aware. One of them was able to quarantine the infected file (I thought that this was only the virus and not the whole file), so when it prompted me to restart my PC, I can't login to the windows (after the big windows logo and the loading bar). Instead it just restarted itself from the beginning.

So yesterday, I sadly formatted my PC since I thought it can't be saved anymore wacko.gif

Thanks anyway for your effort Noviciate!
