I discovered my laptop had a problem a couple of days ago after running Spybot. Spybot found two items relating to Virtumonde.prx. I used the Spybot fix problems option, but it could only remove one of items relating to this Trojan.

I then tried using Microsofts Malicious Malware Removal Tool, which seemed to indicate that it would pick up Virtumonde based on the complete list it was meant to deal with, but after scanning for over an 1 ˝ hours nothing was found.

I then scanned for a second time using Spybot and it found the item relating to Virtumonde.prx that it could not remove after the first run but seemingly did so this time around.

After running this I decided to download and run a scan with Malwarebytes, which seemed to find two other major problems. The first relating to Trojan.Hiloti and the second relating to Spyware.Passwords. After a rebooting these all appear to have been cleared, but I did get an error on startup referring to hSVSVReg.dll.

After this I have run Spybot again and it indicates a Win32.AutoRun.tmp Trojan. On re-running Malwarebytes it seems to show a clean bill of health. After a bit of hunting around, it appears this probably isn’t an issue – something Spybot doesn’t like about Malwarebytes it seems.

However, from reading about Virtumonde and Hiloti it seems the above is not enough to totally clear the two problems found, so came to this site for help.

On running the prep work to get the various logs for this posting the laptop crashed whilst running GMER scan. I restarted in Safe Mode and think these problems must have got back into the system while carrying out the prep work.

I haven't attached any of the logs as am now using someone elses computer and I am uncertain whether transferring them via a memory stick could spread the problem.

Any help will be much appreciated.
