Hello,

About a week and a half ago I got infected with antivir solution pro. I followed the various guides and thought I had it cleaned up succesfully. Then last Friday I found my internet connection was disabled, and it was because a virus was using my computer to send out bulk spam.

I told my ISP I would take care of it. I downloaded Avast (previously using AVG) and did a full scan, and Avast found a rootkit. I decided not to take any more chances and did a full wipe of the HD.

So that brings me to now. I've done the wipe, but I can't stop feeling paranoid, and I would like to be sure something isn't creeping in the recesses of my HD. More importantly, my ISP has told me they're going to disconnect me if they get any more complaints after Wednesday, and I need to make sure that doesn't happen.

Hello,

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<==

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then post back here and we will provide you with further instructions.

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.

Hello

Now that your log is properly 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 Removal 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 Removal 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 Removal 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 made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal 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 HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic
