Hi,
I think I posted originally in the wrong forum (trojans, malware etc). Will go back and delete that post, and the attachments.
The computer is running Windows XP Professional SP 2.
I have backed up the computer onto a flash drive, run DDS & Gmer, and have logs for these, and have run defogger.
the computer infected has a "Registry Data Not Found!" error and I saw in one of the logs mentioned that a 'possible MBR rootkit' infection was present.
I have access to the internet via my spare laptop, and have run DDS and Gmer in safe mode on the affected computer.
Can you please advise what to do next?
thanks,
Rose

DDS/HijackThis logs are not permitted in this forum. If you have already followed the steps in the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help", then post your logs in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here, for assistance by the Malware Response Team Experts.

You're welcome.

Your log is posted here.

Now that your log is 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 Response 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 member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process or make things worst which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Response 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 Response 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 posted your log and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your post or make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Response 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 Malware Response Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic until you are cleared by the Malware Response Team. If you still need assistance after your log has been reviewed and you have been cleared, please PM me or another moderator and we will re-open this topic.

Good luck with your log.
