Hi Guys,
My laptop has been diagnosed by AVG with Brontok.C, which Im having real trouble getting rid of, could someone please help me? I have used up to datebanti virus numerous times which tells me that its gotten rid of the infected files, but they always come back a few minutes later. Ive also read through numerous other forums where people have suggested registry changes, but of the entries were in my registry. Could someone please help me out?

The infected files that AVG finds are all in my Shared documents folder – Data HP.exe, SharedDocs.exe, My Pictures.exe, SyncPlaylists.exe and the like.

This is my hijack this log-

Hello theboyliam,

I am SifuMike and I will be helping you. :thumbsup:

The infected files that AVG finds are all in my Shared documents folder – Data HP.exe, SharedDocs.exe, My Pictures.exe, SyncPlaylists.exe and the like.


Please tell me the exact locations of all the infected files AVG is finding (the complete file path).


Disable your antivirus program and go here http://www.bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.html and run an online scan with BitDefender (you will need to use Internet Explorer for this scan). When the ActiveX Control has loaded, click on "Click here to scan". This scan may take a few hours. It all depends on the number of files on your computer.

When BitDefender completes the scan, select the "Detected Problems" tab.
Click on "Click here to export scan".
Save the file as an HTML to your Desktop.
Then click on the saved file and allow it to open with your browser.
Go to Edit - Select All then copy/paste that log back here.
Post the BitDefender log.
