Avast just caught this-1202EC8.sys = win32P:Alureon-PS, but I don't think it got it in time.
Almost all my desktop; icons are now hidden files.
I have a new program installed called, Windows Recovery.
I also get a pop-up says-"The system has detected a problem with one or more installed IDE/SATA hard disks. It is recommended that you restart the system."

I have it diconnected from the network and in the process of running MBAM now.

What should I do now?

Thanks,
Tim

PS-- now just got another pop-up / Critical hard disk error.
Has a Fix Problem and a Cancel button on the bottom.
PSS-- a new one just now--Windows was unable to save all the datafor the file \\Systen32\\496A8300 The data has been lost. The error maybe caused by the failure of your compter hardware.

Well the MBAM scan only got about half way through and the computer rebooted on its own. I was able to catch it and get into safe mode and I am doing another MBAM scan now.

PS-- in the title it should read "win32:Alureon-PS"
I really need a new keyboard LOL

Sounds like the Windows Recovery rogue:

Try following the removal guide for Windows Recovery.

Well I followed the tut about removing this bug, but without luck.
It is still there. Malewarebytes will not update, Avast will not update, now when I run Rkill I get this message-
"Terminating known malware processes.
Please be paitiant.
Access denied."

MBAM shows this error-
"An error has occured. Please report this error code to our support team.
PROGRAM_ERROR_UPDATING(5,0,Createfile)
Access is denied

Malewarebytes did find a few things and said it deleted them.
Rebooted like it told me, and it all started up again with all the fake messages.
I am running another MBAM scan now, but it will not show all my drives either. It only shows "C", "D", and "E", but not the network share "S". It always has before.

So what should my next step be?
Should I leave that pc off the network?

Thanks,
Tim

We need a deeper look. Please go here....
Preparation Guide ,do steps 6 - 9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9,which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If a tool won't run then skip it and mention any error messages in the new topic.
Let me know if that went well.

If I map a network drive and save to another pc will the bug infect the 2nd pc?


Possibly.

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic392921.html 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 MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in 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 MRT 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 MRT Team members are EXTREMELY 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 MRT 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 MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
