This is the story of a friend of mine.... Never seen that before!
It s about a TOSHIBA LAPTOP A30/WinXP Home Service Pack1/Celeron 2,6Ghz, 256Mo which has nerver been on the net since the date of purchase in 2003 (=> please understand no windows update since 2003, no firewall, no antivirus)....And last saturday, my friend got a high speed broadband access.
What can i tell you?
I have just spent 14hours behind this fu**ing laptop (4200tpm HDD) to get ride of the infection!!!
I don't know how to sum up the story..
1/SP2 installation first!!!!
1bis//Unactivation of Restore Mode
2/SDFix (in safe mode)
3/DrWebCureIt (in safe mode)
4/Spybot Search and Destoy (in safe mode)
5/SpywareGuard et Spywareblaster (++++++++)
6/Outpost Firewall Pro and his malware detection tool (+++)
And Hijack THis (of course)
Just for information, my friend got more than 30 trojan/malware/spyware which have infected more than 350files!!!!!!!!
The worse for me was to kill "VirtuMonde" process
It took me quite a long time to find the good patch VundoFix (from Attribute)
So after 12hours, i get ride of all infected files!!!!!
But, my problem is now Windows Update
I downloaded more than 70 updates but i can not install them!
I get a blue screen of death when i use the "quick installation"
So i started to install one by one all the updates
And i found that some updates crashed the laptop
Without any idea of why i get a blue screen of death, i stopped all the updates!
At the moment, the laptop is runnging well (no more infected files) but i think that windows has been probably damaged
I tried debug mode=>still blue screen
I test the memory with memtest=> no error
I ran a CHECKDISK with repair mode activated
So, now, i have no more idea in the way o follow for install my updates (it's not a licence problem)
And i ask some help
