I am running Windows XP on my home computer.
I scan using AVG. During the most recent scan I found:
A0039608.exe Trojan Horse Generic.RWS
A0039854.exe Trojan Horse Generic.JX
devmks4.exe Virus found worm/spybot
Poller.exe Trojan Horse Generic.RWS
spoolsub.exe Virus found IRC/Backdoor.sdbot
Via Google I found the bleepingcomputer.com site and found my way to: How to remove a Trojan. Virus, Worms, or other Malware
This link advised me to download/extract Autoruns
. This program is supposed to allow me to remove these viruses from my system registry.
Step 6 in How to remove these infections
advised me to check the Startup Database
since many malware programs disguise themselves by using the same filenames as valid Microsoft files.
However when I do a search on the Startup Database
for these particular malwares I am not given enough additional info to help me identify them when I run Autoruns
Any advice out there?
