First of all. I´m new with Bleeping and this is my first posting...
Recently my Avast Antivirus found some malware/adware trying to access my computer.
These messeges were as follows:
Win32: Adware-gen [Adw] moved to quarantine
Win32: Gen MaliciousA-KOJ [Adw] moved to quarantine
Win32: Dropper-gen [Drp] (don´t know which action was taken)
It seemed Avast might have taken care of it, but afterwards my icons and files on my desktop dissapeared. I backuped some of my files to a brand new, right out of the box, external USB harddrive. When I connect it now it´s not recognized by my computer any longer. USB virus infection? Have used two USB-sticks and they both seem to work fine. I don´t wont to connect any of my devices to any other computer in case I´m infected.
Internet is working and I can run my programs. What tools should I use to find out whether my computer is still infected or not? Is there anyway to find out if someone has hacked my computer and is now "listening".
I´ve have runned TDSSKiller, SuperAntiSpyware (quick scan) and Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool (quick scan). They all came out clean. I´m running Windows XP Home.
What do you think I should do. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
