Did you follow Symantec's instructions for W32.Stration@mm Removal? You will find it along with instructions under the "Removal" Tab.

Download the following programs:
AVG vcleaner
DrWeb-CureIt
Sysclean Package.
Virus Pattern Files (lptXXX.zip).

For the Sysclean Package do this:
  • Create a new folder on drive "C:\" ("C:\New Folder") and rename it Sysclean.
  • Place the sysclean.com inside that folder.
  • Extract the lptXXX.zip pattern file into the same folder you created for sysclean.com.
  • DISABLE your current anti-virus software. Some anti-virus programs such as Avast will alert you to a virus attack when running sysclean so it's best to disable them first. DO NOT use yet.
Note: When using Sysclean its best to use the Administrator's account or an account with Administrative rights otherwise you will not have the rights to scan some locations resulting in Access is denied log entries.

Reboot your computer in SAFE MODE" using the F8 method.

Scan with AVG vcleaner.

Scan with Sysclean as follows:
  • Open the Sysclean folder and double-click on sysclean.com to run.
  • It will take some time to complete. Be patient and let it clean whatever it finds.
  • Exit when done.
Scan with DrWeb-CureIt as follows:
  • Double-click on drweb-cureit.exe to start the program.
  • An "Express Scan of your PC" notice will appear. Under "Start the Express Scan Now", Click "OK" to start.
  • Click "Select drives" and then click the "Start/Stop Scanning" button (green arrow on the right) to start.
  • When done a message will be displayed at the bottom advising if any viruses were found.
  • A log file will be created in C:\Documents and Settings\username\DoctorWeb\CureIt.log
  • Any quarantined files will be sent to C:\Documents and Settings\username\DoctorWeb\Quarantine.
  • Exit the program and reboot normally.
Then perform this online Virus scan: F-Secure Online Scanner <- Be sure to follow the directions on the F-Secure page for proper Installation.
