I got infected over the weekend by AntiMalware Doctor. My PC still runs, and I have a 'clean' laptop if that helps. After getting the "you've been infected, click here to buy our solution" or some such message, I quickly got notice from my Mcafee anti-virus program stating that I was indeed infected. I tried to do some research on the net, and found this group.
I followed the instructions I found for using MalwareBytes, and it seemed to take a lot of the problems out, but then I found that my folder options had been removed, and that I couldn't run Regedit anymore. I was able to fix that part from the Safe Mode, but now I have a problem with IE8 opening seemingly random sites, and something keeps trying to write to my registry the logishrd.LVPRCINJ01.DLL. I've used McAfee to block most of the writes from this program to my registry and tried blocking files running from my Temp directories, one such file is index.dat, but these keep being run.
I don't understand why we can't get in ahead of these files, so I'll be trying to get some help from you fine folks.
Whatever help you guys can offer would be greatly appreciated. I got this once before, and ended up formatting my drive...I would rather not do that this time.
