Hi,

Over the last couple of weeks my Norton antivirus auto-protect has come up with several trojan files that it has either automatically deleted, repaired or denied acces to.

Also, while surfing the inetrnet, I have on two occaisions had SystemDoctor popups (I can provide screenshots if it would help).

The threats that Norton has removed from my system over the past two weeks are the following:

Trojan.Horst
Downloader
Trojan Horse
Infostealer
Trojan.Adclicker

I have followed the removal instructions on the symantec website each time, and I regularly update, and scan my system with Norton Antivirus, Windows Defender, AdAware SE Personal, Spybot Search & Destroy and AVG Anti-Spyware. And yet these Trojan attacks seem to keep coming back.

Any ideas how to properly clean up my system?

Thanks in advance,

Michael

We have a self-help section for removing common malware. Please see the self-help tutorial How To Remove System Doctor 2006.

After that, download DrWeb-CureIt & save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.

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

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. This is a short scan that will scan the files currently running in memory and when something is found, click the Yes button when it asks you if you want to cure it.
  • Once the short scan has finished, Click Options > Change settings
  • Choose the "Scan tab" and UNcheck "Heuristic analysis"
  • Back at the main window, click "Select drives" (a red dot will show which drives have been chosen)
  • Then click the "Start/Stop Scanning" button (green arrow on the right) and the scan will start.
  • When done, a message will be displayed at the bottom advising if any viruses were found.
  • Click "Yes to all" if it asks if you want to cure/move the file.
  • When the scan has finished, look if you can see the icon next to the files found. If so, click it, then click the next icon right below and select "Move incurable".
    (This will move it to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if it can't be cured)
  • Next, in the Dr.Web CureIt menu on top, click file and choose save report list.
  • Save the DrWeb.csv report to your desktop.
  • Exit Dr.Web Cureit when done.
  • Important! Reboot your computer because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
