Might be infected, might not. Need Help

Recommended Posts

I recently (Thursday) swapped out my old 500 GB 5400 hard drive for a new 500 GB 7400 hard drive. Did a complete system restore. Was excited to be problem free (although the old hard drive didn't have virus problems). (full disclosure the computer is a HP dv6000 special edition purchased in 2007)

Aside from all the Windows Updates, the things I did was use the Norton Removal tool to get rid of Norton, downloaded Firefox to use as my browser and downloaded Microsoft Security Essentials as my anti-virus. I also just downloaded Skype (but that was after problem occurred).

I noticed that the computer seemed a little sluggish opening programs. I initially used the Webroot System Analyzer program that the guys at Geek Squad gave me and it showed this;


I then tried to use the System Analyzer removal tool and it showed (after an extensive search) no viruses.

I took the computer down to my buddy at Geek Squad and he downloaded Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. When he did his initial search it came up with a trojan, although I can't recall where or what it was, as he deleted it rather quickly.

When I got home I re-ran the scan using the Webroot System Analyzer it again showed the above trojan. When I re-ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, doing both the superficial and deep scans, no trojans were detected.


Anyways, here is my Hijack this report;


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi and welcome to Malwarebytes.

Please update MBAM, run a Quick Scan, and post its log.

Next, download DDS by sUBs and save it to your Desktop.

Double-click on the DDS icon and let the scan run. When it has run two logs will be produced, please post DDS.txt directly into your reply.

Here is the latest MBAM;

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.50

Windows 6.0.6002 Service Pack 2

Internet Explorer 8.0.6001.18975

Will download the DDS program and run it now.

As an aside did the Hijack this log tell you anything? Also, is the trojan.gen.x generic or is it do something specific? I was unable to find anything online about it.
