Hello all- I have run CF now three times since last night. I have run chkdsk, malwarebytes and Trend Micro's scan and currently they all come back either nothing malicious or clean volume. This is all after I realized two days ago that I had received "worm.win32.netsky". T-micro did quarantine two files and advised they had turned away 7 viruses and 95 spywares, etc. After T-micro I ran M-bytes which picked up 50+ infected files. My ISP tech support people recommended CF which I ran last night and it seemingly made it all better, after alerting me to the presence of a "rootkit" and re-booting before continuing with the scanning. The third attempt just completed under safe mode as I could no longer boot otherwise, still came up with the evidence of a rootkit and successfully re-booted and did complete the scanning. Before this last booting and running in safe mode, all appeared fine as I was able to open Outlook and access Internet Explorer but then after a few minutes we started slowing down and ultimately became non-responsive to the point I was only able to shut down the computer and nothing else. I have not ventured beyond this forum since I printed my last log. Prior to this 3rd CF scan, I did run DDS and was running Gmer when we stalled out. Guidance please. Thanks for your time. Steve

PS-An old note also mentions "Trojanspm/LX", at this point I don't remember where I saw that.......

Hello and welcome.. first note the blue text abve this forum. Stop running combofix. Instead Please go here....
Preparation Guide ,do steps 6 - 9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9,which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If Gmer won't run,skip it and move on.
Include the Lasy ComboFix log.

Let me know if that went well.

Hi Boop- Just as I finished my post, my screen started ignoring me but I was able to get to the start button and shut down. I am running back and forth twixt the two offices/computers and will try to revive in safe mode and run a new DDS and tsfr the last CF log to a flash drive and get them to this computer. Does that make sense or ??? I do have an expendable flash drive. Thx Steve

If the malware that is the issue has an autorun in it it will infect the second.. I say wait a couple days and let the Malware tean get it out.

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic351239.html 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 MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in 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 MRT 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 MRT Team members are EXTREMELY 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 MRT 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 MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
