Last night, by chance I decided to go into my registry and check my HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run entries
and came across
Bandook <system>\ali.exe

*Bandook <system>\ali.exe

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed components\(B6A807N6-42DF-4W02-93E5-B156B3FA8AL1)

I checked online and discovered it was a trojan, what it did and disconnected immediatley
After booting into safe mode and running Norton Internet security it turned up nothing. So I deleted all the above registry entries(still in safe mode) as well as the prefetch file and ALI.EXE file.

After rebooting into normal mode and scanning of the registry I didn't find anymore entries or ALI.exe files.
I then went back online and downloaded new version EWIDO AVG and scanned in safe mode which also turned up nothing.

So to the point finally (sorry), did I get rid of the trojan or just make things worse for myself?

Thanks in advance for the help

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
