Try some of the suggestions here.

If you are using WIN XP/2000, also download and scan with Ewido Anti-Malware v3.5
Ewido Install and Scan Instructions

If you can, perform these online Virus scans:
[Watch the Address bar in IE. You may receive alerts that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Install ActiveX component]

Trend Micro Housecall Scan
Panda ActiveScan
ActiveScan Panda does not remove adware/spyware but will autoclean for viruses & worms.

If the problems continue after this, then I suggest you read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log.

When you have done that, post a log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, not here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts.

It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy. Please be patient as they are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have not been replied as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped.

hi quietman7..

I've just read your mail today.. thanks for the answer..

a few days after Brontok virus seems to attack not only my friends PC's also my brother's internet cafe business...infecting 42 computers with the server..(makes GREAT SHOCK!!)

AVG ANTIVIRUS was able to provide new patch which conquers the said Virus.

But AVg needed to be installed first in order to block the Brontok entering the system..if Brontok already infected the PC,Avg could not be installed, no other choice but to reformat all the infected PC's. This contibute great lost in TIME.

Again THANKS!! for your information ,Its's really quite impressive to recieved Answer from you.
