Best Way to get rid of Various Malware

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a PC that has had system antivirus 2008 / antispyware 2008 XP and ave managed to remove this with the help of Malware Bytes software. I have got to the stage now where I have an alert with Nod32 about win32/kryptik.e trojan affecting 1 file and also

spy sweeper is reporting

Virtumonde

fakealert.gen

trojan-xiphoman

yieldmanager cookie

doubleclick cookie

specificclick.com cookie

webtrendslive cookie

And ideas on the best software to remove all of this or to check that the machine is clean if I bought superantispyware. Just need to get/know if the machine is clean

Many thanks for any help. The other option is to reload but wanted to see first. Thx

Hi and welcome to the sas forums :)

If i can request some more data from you then i will probaly be able to assist you in finishing the cleanup of your pc 8)

1)What is the filename and location of the file that Nod32 is flagging ?

e.g C/Windows/System32/name.exe

2)Ignoring the cookies what are the file name & locations of the SS detections,if any are registry valkues then what is there location ?

3)Download a copy of Autoruns :

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysi ... 63902.aspx

Run a scan but then after it completes

Click options .

Check both "verify code signatures" and "hide signed microsoft entries" . This will make the list a lot shorter .

Now press F5 to rerun the scan with the new settings.When this completes

click file tab then select "Export as" and save the log(autoruns.txt) to your desktop.

Copy and paste the contents of autoruns.txt to your next post and i will review the output data of it:)

does autoruns contain any personal infromation in the logs ?

It depends on what you call personal information....the log output wiil pretty much tell the trained analysis what softwares are set to load etc

It also shows the what else is loading...in your case possibly malware :wink:

It is a diagnostic tool and a very good one at that produced by a M$ employee.

I hope this allays your concerns:)

You can't unless of course you are familliar with use of diagnostic tools and malware infections in general hence why i as a third party was hoping to assist you in checking.

Unfortunetly until i have the requested data from the first post then i cannot procede :wink:
