Hello everybody. I'm Jeff, and my PC is infected (Hi, Jeff!)
I got hit about a week ago with Opencloud AV Malware. My own fault, since I let my real AV software fall out of date.
Brought the machine into Safe Mode, used Malware Bytes and did some other cleaning. It seemed to have worked, but...
Any time I bring the machine up with Networking enabled, it sort of hangs on the TCP parts. There's an odd process I can't recall ever seeing. It is called 107677792:262802873.exe and seems only to appear when I am running with networking.
Ran HijackThis and everything looked the way it was supposed to look with the exception of one tcpip DNS entry, which I deleted.
Now, if I try to run Malware or Norton, it just hangs or dies in the middle. When IE starts, it also gives me garbage. Maybe there's something else running here.
I am out of ideas and about ready to re-install the O/S (Win XP) from scratch. Any suggestions? Friends suggested de-installing the TCP/Ip components but I suspect that this will leave the infected files on the hard drive enabling them to be re-executed later on.
