My netbook has had infections for about a 5 weeks now. I have a msi wind u100 netbook with windows xp home edition service pack 3 and 64 not 32.
I think it all started when I downloaded internet explorer 8 along with an ask.com toolbar for free. I have been using
Stopzilla and malwarebytes and avira together for about a year now but these viruses still got through!
The first problem was not being able to do a windows update. I follwed some advice on the microsoft website by renaming some "dll" files but that didn't work. Sometimes the sound on itunes and windows firewall will not work. Then I kept on receiving the message: GENERIC HOST PROCESS FOR WIN32 SERVICES HAS ENCOUNTERED A PROBLEM AND NEEDS TO CLOSE
I have stopped online banking and checking emails. I used GMER but didn't really get it...kaspersky tdss killer found nothing. I used trendmicro buster
I have scanned with avast! and did a boot scan that found lots of viruses - it now comes back clear. I moved it all to chest but deleted the logs. Here are the viruses in the chest: 85145-6d0-0.dat, A0038828.exe, applet.class, c.class, go(1).htm, google\bingo.class,
google\javaxml.class, google\jperl.class, google\mongo.class, google\stomp.class, java_skyline(1).htm (theres two of this one)java_trust(1).htm (theres two of this one too) showthread(1).htm
I have this one log of a virus found today: C:\...\Alureon-G@mbr(Rtk)85145-6d0-0.dat severity was high and I moved it to chest.
Each and every time I start my netbook, avast! finds two rootkits and asks me if I want to delete or ignore, I delete and it's back again. Here are the rootkits: MBR:\\.\PHYSICALDRIVE0 F, This is the second one: \\.\PHYSICALDRIVE0 MBR:TDL4. These pop ups from avast! come up everytime I'm online.
Here are the ones today: MALICIOUS URL BLOCKED-object: 18.104.22.168 infection: URL: Mal Action: Blockled Process: C:\WINDOWS\System32\sychost.exe
Will i need to buy a new netbook? or if I format the whole netbook will I have to buy windows xp again on a disc because I don't have a reinstall disc and if so how much are they?
Thank you for any help in advance.
