Infection under control?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I need help with an infection on my laptop.

I have done the pre-hgt log routine, except for panda live scan which does not seem to be working. Logs below

Ahh...glad to see you were able to resolve this issue.

Now that your system is clean and running the way you expect, let's create a new restore point you can refer to should the need arise at some point in the future.

Please click "Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore". In the new window, check the 'Create a restore point' in the right pane and click "Next". In the "Restore point description" textbox, name your restore point to something you will easily recognize. I recommend something like yyyymmdd_Clean (ex. 20060101_Clean) Click "Create" and reboot your computer.

To assist in the prevention of spyware infections:

Immunize your browser by installing Spywareblaster. What does it do?

  • Prevents the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted software.
  • Blocks spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
  • Restricts the actions of potentially unwanted sites in Internet Explorer.

Keep your anti-virus and spyware definitions up to date. Be sure to scan often.

Below you can choose from several of the freeware Firewalls available on the public domain. Even though you may have a Firewall already installed, keep this list handy should you choose not to renew your subscription for whatever reason.

You should always have at least (but not more than ) one of these types of third party firewalls running on board:

Kerio Personal Firewall

Zone Alarm

Outpost Free


Install the free security tool "Secunia PSI" to help protect your system against software vulnerabilities. The free utility scans your system's software applications and offers a one button "Download "Solution" feature that updates the exploited software AND provides other related information/patching if warranted.

Stay updated with the most recent Windows patches as well...using Microsoft's Windows Update. Make it easy on yourself, and set this feature to Automatic.

Using an alternate browser can reduce your chance of certain infections installing themselves. We recommend installing Mozilla Firefox. If you don't already have "Firefox", please consider installing and using this browser for surfing.

If you still wish to use Internet Explorer, please make sure you install SpywareBlaster (from above) to protect you from most ActiveX infections.

Run CCleaner often. The Yahoo Toolbar is included by default during the installation...if you DO NOT WANT IT, be sure to remove the check from the "Add CCleaner Yahoo! Toolbar and use CCleaner from your browser" option during installation setup.

Or if you just want to run your on board Disk Cleanup ("Start--> Programs-->Accessories-->System Tools-->Disk Cleanup" ), just open the utility and check off the following:

Downloaded Program Files, Temporary Internet Files, Recycle Bin, and Temporary Files. Don't forget to defrag the system.

So how did I get infected in the first place?

Regards, and Happy Surfing!

Actually, I didn't keep as it came up clean. Also, I used the alternate solution to the Panda live scan. This also turned up clean... My fingers are crossed.


HJT logs can only be determined "clean" by someone familiar with analyzing them. I suggest you submit some sort of AV log and a HJT log to be looked at.
