Hello all, recently one of our small office computers was infected with this "Vista Antispyware 2012" virus. My boss thought it was a good thing so she let it do it's "magic" for a few days without mentioning it. Eventually the computer lost all office network/internet connection and I was told to help. Since then the "Vista Antispyware 2012" window has stopped popping up (I think AVG or malwarebytes did something). Please let me know if there is anything that can be done to help repair it.

Hello mearth,

My name is ratman and and I will be helping you with your computer problems.

Before we begin, I would like to make a few things clear so that we can fix your problem as efficiently as possible:

  • Be sure to follow all my instructions carefully! If there is anything you don't understand, don't hesitate to ask.
  • Please do not do anything or perform other steps unless I have asked you to do so.
  • Please make sure you post all logs I ask you to, and make sure that the entire log gets posted.


Backdoor Warning

One or more of the identified infections (ZeroAccess) is a backdoor trojan.

This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and download and execute files.

I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.

Though the trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS. Please read these for more information:

How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?
When Should I Format, How Should I Reinstall

We can still clean this machine but I can't guarantee that it will be 100% secure afterwards. Let me know what you decide to do. If you do decide to proceed, please continue with the fix below.


Please download ComboFix from here:


* IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop.

  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications including Firewalls, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools.
  • Right click on ComboFix icon Posted Image and run as admin then follow the prompts.

When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.

In your next reply, please copy/paste the contents of the following:
  • C:\Combofix.txt

Hello mearth,

I have not had a reply from you for 3 days. Can you please tell me if you still need help with your computer as I am unable to help other members with their problems while I have your topic still open. The time taken between posts can also change the situation with your PC making it more difficult to help you.
regards, ratman
