Let me first start out by saying thank you for this site, I have come across so many tools and fixes that have saved computers for me in the past. This one has me stumped.
I've run Vundofix, VirtumondeBegone, Smitrem, Smitfraudfix, Brute FOrce Uninstaller (SurfSideKick). The computer is stuck in safe mode, I cannot load the MSConfig program to get it back to a Normal startup. I tried a utility that is supposed to make an openable copy of MSconfig but it failed. I cant run Disk Cleanup I DLed Cleanup! and that fails when I run it, cannot complete (My assumption is its trying to delete a temp file that is running under an explorer shell). Im at my WHIT'S END! Any Help would be greatly appreciated. Adaware also cannot complete a scan, Spybot S&D scans, finds what I know is there, but wont clean it. Vundofix, BFU and Virumondebegone all should start when windows starts to finish the cleaning but they arent.

Hi Dansully, :flowers:

We're studying your log and will be back to you a.s.a.p.

Thanks for your patience. :thumbsup:

P.S. I am travelling on Sunday so will not be available at the forum.

Hi Dansully, :thumbsup:

Welcome to BleepingComputer Forums and thanks again for your patience.

Your log shows a very dangerous Trojan is residing on your PC: Troj/Agent-ECUwhich is a backdoor Trojan for the Windows platform. It is known that the trojan can communicate with remote computers, download and run code, send emails and redirect browser requests.

Another one is: Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Small.ddx which is considered a high risk trojan downloader

High risks are typically installed without user interaction through security exploits, and can severely compromise system security. Such risks may open illicit network connections, use polymorphic tactics to self-mutate, disable security software, modify system files, and install additional malware. These risks may also collect and transmit personally identifiable information (PII) without your consent and severely degrade the performance and stability of your computer.

Next to that you have several nasty infections on your computer e.g. Vundo and Wareout.

I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or it if it contains any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.

Install a firewall. There are several good ones and for free available:

Zone alarm

For a tutorial on Firewalls click: Understanding and Using Firewalls!

Though the Trojans have been identified and can be killed, because of their backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of Trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS.

Visit the following sites for more information on internet theft and when to reformat!

Should you decide not to follow the above advice, we will of course do our best to clean the computer of any infections that we can see but, as I already stated, we can in no way guarantee it to be trustworthy.

If you have any questions before to come to a final decision, feel free to ask.

Please let me know your decision.

Hi Dansully, :thumbsup:

I allready referred to here for tips on reformatting/re-installing. Before doing anything read the information presented.
Do you have an external harddisk or an alternative storage system (USB stick, CD's) large enough to copy your entire disk so you can be sure that you don't lose anything (bookmarks, e-mail, passwords, IP dadresses, usernames etc.)? There are some free programmes to help you do the job like: WinBackup 1.86. But remember to scan files with an antivirus before installing them again on your reformatted computer, since they came from an infected computer.

Furthermore don't forget to change your passwords!

If you need additional help or advice feel free to ask for it in this thread.
