I have posted this in another forum by mistake.
Please ignore post in other forum (Removal Logs) (Sorry for the mistake)

Before I found this forum I attempted to fix my computer that had a MBR virus.
Not real smart I know but didn't know there was any help out there in internet land.
It all started with a google redirect.
Did some researched and found this virus can be many things.
I have CA security suite from roadrunner and called them after I ran there software and the problem was not fixed.
The CA tech took over my computer and through a rootkit software tool that they have , found a MBR virus.(no specifics)
Also they ran TDDSKILLER by kapersky before this. I don't think it found anything not sure.
But the rootkit software certainty did.
They then told me that there is nothing you can do for a MBR virus and to reformat.
I was very disappointed to say the least.
My google redirect was in firefox but my explorer worked fine so I researched some more.
I came across a thread that recommended Hitman pro. ( Sounded promising) Didn't work of course.
I lastly found out about combo-fix. Ran the program per the very intense instructions.
Google redirect was gone.
So I called CA back and asked them to take over my computer again and run this rootkit software.
They did reluctantly and found it again. ( Even after combo-fix)
Was starting to get worried because even if I wasn't getting the redirect the MBR was still showing up.
Once again did some more research and found out that even if you reformat this may not remove the virus because reformatting does not affect the MBR.
So I found the final step that I did which was putting in my recovery CD and going to repair and selecting drive C
and doing the fixmbr and fixboot.
I know it was very risky from the information i read but seemed the only thing I could do.
Was very scared I was going to loose all my drives and who knows what else.
To my surprise everything came back to normal.
I ran the software that CA had left on my computer. ( CA rootkit repair) and the MBR that was showing up was gone.
I also ran CA anti-virus-found nothing
I also ran Tddskiller-found nothing
I also ran malwarebytes-found nothing
I think a few others with nothing found.
After this lengthy post of my endeavors I was wondering is there anything you can have me run that will produce a log
and upload it to you for analysis.
My concern is everything seems fine on the surface but I could not read a report log and figure it out if anything is still wrong.
Lastly I will say my other concern is that I think but not sure the original virus came in through firefox add-on.
I have tried to uninstall firefox just because I wanted a fresh one.
This program will not uninstall. ( maybe a concern, maybe just something to do with firefox , don't know.)

I have since ran many scans for your analysis.
Out of all scans the only problem one will be the Kaspersky on line 7.0 scanner.
Will post findings in the Topic Title.
Thank you, in advance.

I will wait on response before posting scan logs.
I have them at your request for Malwarebytes.Superantispyware,Kaspersky online scanner,TDSSKILLER and also
CA Rootkit remover.
I have ran CA2010 Security Scan but it does not produce a log. ( Scan Was Clean )
OS WinXP Home Service pack3
HP Desktop pavilion a705w

Update to my post.

Ran Eset scanner.
Eset found the same virus --C:\hp\recovery\wizard\fscommand\AppRecoveryLink_ret.exe Infected: Trojan-Spy.Win32.Agent.bdrd
C:\hp\recovery\wizard\fscommand\CDLogic_ret.exe Infected: Trojan-Spy.Win32.Agent.bdrd 1
C:\hp\recovery\wizard\fscommand\CreatorLink_ret.exe Infected: Trojan-Spy.Win32.Agent.bdrd 1
C:\hp\recovery\wizard\fscommand\RestoreLink_ret.exe Infected: Trojan-Spy.Win32.Agent.bdrd 1
C:\hp\recovery\wizard\fscommand\RTCDLink_ret.exe Infected: Trojan-Spy.Win32.Agent.bdrd 1
C:\hp\recovery\wizard\fscommand\RunLink_ret.exe Infected: Trojan-Spy.Win32.Agent.bdrd 1
C:\hp\recovery\wizard\fscommand\SysRecoveryLink_ret.exe Infected: Trojan-Spy.Win32.Agent.bdrd 1
C:\hp\recovery\wizard\fscommand\WizardLink_ret.exe Infected: Trojan-Spy.Win32.Agent.bdrd 1

Eset quarantined and deleted virus. (Or virus logs )

Ran Kaspersky online scanner 7.0 again.
Log was clean.

Does anybody know if this was a active virus that my AV missed or logs file of the virus.
Any is there any other tool I can run to see if it is really gone.
I would love to have confirmation about this situation before creating a restore point.
Has anybody seen this before?
Please review first post.
Thank you in advance

I see that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic352512.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.
