DDS only producing one log? Shouldn't there be two?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I am currently running Malwarebytes Pro (so glad I went the Pro route), but for the first time something got past it last night. Microsoft Essentials reported 'TROJAN:DOS/Alureon.A' and Malwarebytes reported two files but I did not jot them down. Seemed to damage both Malawarebytes and MS Essentials as both programs say it had removed the problem but I would reboot, run another scan and they were all still there.

After searching your site I got a little nervous reading another poster who you said had a back-door. So rather than take further chances I immediately disconnected from the interenet and re-installed the partician from a back up boot-up CD (Acronis 2012) - ran a scan and all seems good now. Also changed my most important passwords on my bank accounts.

So I want to be better prepared for next time. I d/l your DDS.com and ran the program to try it out/see what it reports. It says it will create two reports: DDS.txt and Attach.txt. But I only see the DDS report? Should there not be two?
