Hello everyone,


I misclicked and started a download of an ISO that mounted a disk on my computer. AVG detected several trojans (Autoit2_c.LJE, Patched3_c.BTUJ, HackTool.ATAT) and was able to secure the hacktools but not the two others.


I used unmounted the disk, ran CCleaner and immediately purged everything (temp folders, history, passwords, recycle bin etc.) I ran AVG scanner and it found no threats.


I ran Rkill and here is the log:

Ran Mbar and here is the log:
Just wondering if I'm in the clear or not. Thanks!

the one on the hosts file probably cant and wont do anything then again im saying that because i have a bunch of malware domains on the hosts file that dont work because theres no malware on my computer for them to do anything and they are just sitting there (that i know of atleast)

you should probably use rkill and your antivirus again in safe mode without networking to make sure

Malware domains are listed in the "hosts" file precisely to prevent your going there inadvertently.  The hosts file redirects those calls back to the originating computer, so they don't work.  For explanation see http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.htm


FWIW I have used the MVPS hosts file for many years with very satisfactory results.  A very large hosts file may slow a computer down - but there is a workaround for that, to be found on the above listed site.  That site also provides detailed information about how to use the hosts file with different Windows versions, including 8, 8.1 and 10.


SpywareBlaster is another very useful piece of software that blocks access to a long list of dangerous sites, in a somewhat similar way.
