Good Morning,

I Posted this to the wrong forum. Please disregard. I was on the wrong page when I started this new topic. I have posted this to the correct forum.

Again sorry for the mixup.

I need help removing a virus from my windows Server 2003. I have alredy resolved the issues of the Virus changing the path in the registry for the userinit.exe file and I am able to log into my server. This was done through a remote registry session to the server and I modified the key located at HKLM\software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion\winlogon\ The Key is Userinit and the path should read C:\Windows\System32\Userinit.exe, Mine was pointing to the c:\documents and settings folder.

I am currently going through HiJackThis and need some assistance with the log.
Thank you

OK, yes your log is here.


Now that your log is properly 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 Removal 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 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 Malware Removal 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 Removal 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 made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal 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 MRL Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
