After a Trojan blew out an older laptop years ago, I've gotten into the habit of backing up my files, and just formatting it every 6 months. However, I cannot due that right now due to some software w/ a S/N Key that will be wiped out (trust me on that one).

Problem:
Computer was slow as hell... it's a Vaio 64bit win7 SP1, i7s, 8G ram... it normally jams. I use Mozilla 4 for browsing, and was an idiot and downloaded something from a torrent site and I think that's what caused the problems. Whatever this is also kept turning off my AV software as well as Windows Defender, so I figured it must be pretty bad. I just use Antivir on this... I usually stay away from 'trouble' sites, and have my old laptop for that, haha.

What I've done:
Ran in safe mode and used malewarebytes... this found 1 file and sucessfully deleted it. I then ran safe mode again w/ Spybot and it found 2 files and successfully got rid of them. The laptop seems 'normal' but I'm not sure. My AV is working normal now (not getting shut off at least), as is windows defender. I know Antivir stinks... I'm going to download MS Security Essentials too in a bit. I also ran Combofix, but the readout doesn't mean anything to me. As per directions ("do not post combofix text files or post will be ignored"), I'm not posting it just yet, lol.

So, how do I know for sure that my pc is 'clean'? :/

Thanks,

Doug

Hello, let's do these and see what we get,dp all in Normal mode.. If SpyBot has Teatimer turned on,turn it off for these.


Please download the TDSS Rootkit Removing Tool (TDSSKiller.exe) and save it to your Desktop. <-Important!!!
Be sure to download TDSSKiller.exe (v2.5.0.0) from Kaspersky's website and not TDSSKiller.zip which appears to be an older version 2.3.2.2 of the tool.
  • Double-click on TDSSKiller.exe to run the tool for known TDSS variants.
    Vista/Windows 7 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • If TDSSKiller does not run, try renaming it.
  • To do this, right-click on TDSSKiller.exe, select Rename and give it a random name with the .com file extension (i.e. 123abc.com). If you do not see the file extension, please refer to How to change the file extension.
  • Click the Start Scan button.
  • Do not use the computer during the scan
  • If the scan completes with nothing found, click Close to exit.
  • If malicious objects are found, they will show in the Scan results - Select action for found objects and offer three options.
  • Ensure Cure (default) is selected, then click Continue > Reboot now to finish the cleaning process.
  • A log file named TDSSKiller_version_date_time_log.txt (i.e. TDSSKiller.2.4.0.0_27.07.2010_09.o7.26_log.txt) will be created and saved to the root directory (usually Local Disk C:).
  • Copy and paste the contents of that file in your next reply.


If TDSSKiller does not run, try renaming it. To do this, right-click on TDSSKiller.exe, select Rename and give it a random name with the .com file extension (i.e. 123abc.com). If you do not see the file extension, please refer to these[/color] instructions. In some cases it may be necessary to redownload TDSSKiller and randomly rename it before downloading and saving to the computer.
