Windows XP Pro SP3
First, please refer to this Bleeping Computer post. I'm having same issues with mshta.exe (I have not followed any of the advice in this post yet).
A couple of other symptoms:
- About half the time, I can't get Ctrl + Alt + Delete (link to pic) message to pop up after boot up: I usually have to hit F8 or F12 to get a startup menu in order to get the Ctrl + Alt + Delete message to pop up.
- Automatic Updates are disabled/blocked
- Can't login under Safe Mode. I don't know if that is this bug/virus blocking it or Group Policy here on this work machine blocking it (I used to be able to, don't know if they have tightened up on things or not).
Also, Hitman Pro 3.5.8 - Build 118 (link to pic - expired trial version) says Possible variant of the TDL3 (alias Alureon) rootkit detected. Hitman pic 2.
Any help with any of these issues will be greatly appreciated. Please let me know what programs to download/scans to run/logs to post.
Thanks for any help anyone can provide,
