Did you try running AVG in safe mode?

Can you post a reply telling me where AVG finds the virus?

i tried scanning in safe mode with system restore off, and nothing came up, my computer was clean. i rebooted in normal mode with system restore on and the same virus was found, in the same folder. C: Documents and Settings/owner/local settings/Temp/41.exe this is really starting to get frustrating.

You may wish to print out a copy of these instructions to follow while you complete this procedure.

Please save Hijack This in a permanent folder (i.e. C:\HJT). This ensures backups are saved and accessible.

Please go offline, close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an X in the boxes, only next to these following items, then click fix checked.


O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ViewMgr] C:\Program Files\Viewpoint\Viewpoint Manager\ViewMgr.exe

O4 - Startup: RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 Registration.lnk = C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Temp\{A98F9C7C-4B3E-4D9D-97A4-B6CD2F24E840}\{907B4640-266B-4A21-92FB-CD1A86CD0F63}\ATR1.exe


The following are not necessarily spyware/malware, but we suggest you place a check mark next to the following entries, as these programs may be taking up system resources.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SoundMan] SOUNDMAN.EXE
(Description: System Tray icon for the Realtek AC97 Audio Sound Manager for AC97 onboard audio. Available via Start -> Settings-> Control Panel. Removing this entry will free up a small amount of system resources. )

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [LogitechImageStudioTray] C:\Program Files\Logitech\ImageStudio\LogiTray.exe
(Description: Logitech Image Studio system tray applet. Not necessary. Removing this entry will free up a small amount of system resources.)

Please reboot into safe mode (continually tap the F8 key while your system is starting, select Safe Mode from the menu).
Be sure you're able to view hidden files, and remove the following files in bold (if found):

C:\Program Files\Viewpoint\<<entire folder

Please delete your temporary files. Double Click My Computer (WinXP: Navigate to Start --->My Computer)
You will see an icon representing your harddrive (most likely C: Drive) Right Click on the hard drive icon and click Properties at the
bottom of the fly out window. One the very first tab (General) you will see a button labeled "Disk Cleanup"...click that button.
Make sure the following are checked:
Downloaded Program Files
Temporary Internet Files and
Recycle Bin

Click OK and Disk Cleanup will delete those files for you.

Please run a free online virus scan here (tick the "Auto Clean" checkbox):
http://housecall.antivirus.com/

If that virus scan won't install, use the free one from Panda.

http://www.pandasoft...n_principal.htm

Reboot and post a new log.

Click on the Processes tab and end the following processes:
C:\Program Files\Archive\archive.exe
Exit the Task Manager when finished.


Close all programs leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following, making sure you get them all and not any others by mistake:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Archive] C:\Program Files\Archive\archive.exe
O16 - DPF: {7565A160-5C60-4866-A120-F4D5B2BA3AAE} (FSLoaderCtrl Class) - http://www.clickedyc...fsloader_v3.cab


Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.*Restart the computer.
*as soon as BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until the Advanced Options menu appears.
*Use the arrow keys to select the Safe mode menu item
*press Enter.
Using Windows Explorer, locate the following folder, and delete it:
C:\Program Files\Archive\
Exit Explorer.

Now, while you are still in safe mode, do this:

With Windows Explorer, browse to the C:\documents and settings\Owner (repeat for all users)\local settings\temp folder and delete all files and folders in it.

Then browse to the C:\Windows\Temp folder and delete all files in it.

Then in internet explorer click tools>internet Options>General. Click on Delete Files make sure you get all offline content as well.

Empty recycle Bin.

Reboot as normal afterwards.

Scan using AVG again.

Also do an online virusscan using Housecall. Make sure the option Autoclean is on.

Then please download the latest version of HijackThis:
HijackThis 1.99.1.

Reboot again. Post a fresh log using this version.

Well done :tazz:

A clean log!

Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  • Use an AntiVirus Software - It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future.

    See this link for a listing of some online & their stand-alone antivirus programs:

    Virus, Spyware, and Malware Protection and Removal Resources

  • Update your AntiVirus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

  • Use a Firewall - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over. I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.

    For a tutorial on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:

    Understanding and Using Firewalls

  • Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

  • Install Spybot - Search and Destroy - Install and download Spybot - Search and Destroy with its TeaTimer option. This will provide realtime spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection. You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software.

  • Install Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware. ou should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software in conjunction with Spybot.

  • Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.

  • Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.

Glad I was able to help.
