I have run HighJackThis. Below is my log. Please advise. I use windows XP Professional SP3. I subscribe to McAfee and had Malware Bytes and virus scanner in operation when I got this family of viruses/trojan. I have been struggling for a week with this. I have tried Stinger, MRT, etc. The virus won't allow me to update my Mcafee virus DAT files. I have fought my way back from black screens and through command only prompts. I can now use my normal setting. But, don't know for how long. Also, I have a laptop I have been using for research and a thumb drive to bring over spyware/malware apps. Thanks.

DR,
Thanks for getting back with me. I gave up just before Thanksgiving. I took my machine to a local tech place. For $65 they are looking at it. It must be bad or they too are back logged because I haven't heard from them in a week. What should I have on hands to prep for the next virus (I know I will get one!)beyond what I already have? I subscribe to McAfee and use Malware Bytes. Is there a "better" software? How does Kaspersky stack up? My husband recently purchased an HP laptop with 3 core processor and 4GB memory. His system came with Kaspersky.

Thanks

Thanks for responding. I'm sorry you had to take your computer in for repair but hopefully they will take care of you.

I am not a fan of McAfee or Norton. I personally use AVG or MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials) but am a fan of Kaspersky as well.

The important thing nowadays is to be sure you have what is called Real-Time Protection. That means it is monitoring constantly. A good Firewall, such as ZoneAlarm, Comodo or PCTools would also help as they often alert you to programs wanting to change registry items.

But as fast as we kill them, another one appears. It is never-ending and frustrating at times.

Good luck and safe surfing.

DR
