I was trying to clean a customers HDD which had been infected for a while. I used an HDD external dock hoping it would not infect my system but apparently it's reached the inside of my computer as well. I did a HijackThis scan and found quite a few 023 files that say something to the effect of 023 - Service: @%Systemroot%\system32\ blah blah blah. Not sure if it's a worm, a trojan or a rootkit and I'd like ot get some experienced help since nothing seems to be able to remove it. I did use Dr. Web which says it's quarantined (A0001005.exe) but I am still getting small odd things happening on boot.
I saved a HJT log to my desktop if that helps or I will run/do whatever is suggested.

HijackThis is pretty redundant these days.

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.

You're welcome from Pandy :thumbsup:

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.
