SKYNET Trojan - tricky to remove - Help!


Recommended Posts

I've become infected with the SKYNET trojan. My AVG picked it up and the Resident Shield nas blocked it so I followed as many routes to clean it as I could find - Spybot, AVG Rootkit scanner etc which seemed ot pick it up and remove it but it then re-appeared whenever I booted up (or did anything, to be honest). When I try to run MBAM the scans don't find anything then stop running when scanning the system 32 files and the programme becomes (not responding). I've found and "Wiped" the .sys file usiong Root Repeal but I now get windows messages saying that the varios Skynet DLLs are not designed ot run on windows and that I should reinstall them (!) and my AVG is spooling round popping up that it's blocked the SKYNET .sys file that's oin System 32 drivers every 30 seconds. Could anyone help me through getting rid of this nasty blighter?

Thanks - I'm using MS Vista btw and would rate my technical ability as "novice"

@ digimon

You should be posting that here if you'd like it checked on:

http://www.malwarebytes.org/forums/index.php?showforum=42

BUT you will need the FULL log, not just a piece of it. You may be asked to produce and post a developers log as well (read second pinned topic in the forum I just liked you to for information on the developers log).
