Hi Grinler,

I've got infected by Brave Sentry 4 days ago. I've done alot of things but nothing seems to work. I've found this forum yesterday and seriously it's given me hope. I really hope you and other admins can help me through with this.

So, yesterday eve, i've done exactly as you instructed to remove Brave Sentry. Things went well but slightly different than what you said. After scanning and deleting. I got the report right away and no reboot. At least, the program didn't ask me to reboot. so I did it myself.

After restart the laptop. BS seems to has gone but the computer is still slow just like before. I cannot go to the internet. It's said: "Limited or no connectivity". My desktop was still the same as the virus changed it. And my laptop's performance still down. Very slow.

no pop up window from BS anymore but what else should i do to get back to normal. I am going nut without computer. Please, help.

Many thanks.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Create a directory on your hardrive to save HijackThis.exe. A directory like c:\hijackthis. If you do not do this, you will not be able to use the backup/restore features.

Download HijackThis from:

HijackThis Download Site

Save this file into the directory you made previously and then run the program named hijackthis.exe. When the program opens click on the Config button, then click on the Misc Tools button, and click on the Check for update online button. When it completes checking/applying updates press the back button.

Now click on the Scan button and when it is finished click on the Save Log button. A Notepad window will open with the contents of this log. Click on Edit then click on Select all. Then click on Edit and then Click on Copy.
