Hello BC Rep,
This is a work PC that I am trying to repair. The PC initially had the following problems:
1. Very slow
2. Internet addresses were getting redirected in Google

Forefront intially detected a few viruses and was able to repair all of them with the exception of "DOS/Alureon.A". Is was able to fix the "Google Redirect" problem using "TDSSKiller" from Kapersky. I also have used Malwarebytes and it eliminated some viruses/malware. I have attached the log file after I ran Malwarebytes.

Everything appears to running OK with the exception of Forefront detecting the virus "DOS/Alureon.A". How can remove this trojan? IT has recommended I get a new hard drive due to the nastiness of this particular trojan. Is there an easier alternative?

I cannot run "Defogger.exe" due to work pc not in Administrative mode. Is there another way to run "Defogger.exe"? Can I run the DDS and GMER programs without successfully running "Defogger.exe"?

Dear BC Rep,

IT has taken my computer and decided to install new hard drive so your assistance is no longer needed.

Thanks for your assistance!
