I have a fairly well knowledge of virus removal and troubleshooting but this virus is giving me a big headache.

I used AVG and Spybot to remove. Spybot removed the spyware the virus created and AVG detected the file as a virus but is unable to properly remove.

this file is the problem, i used hijackthis to remove the file but was unsuccessful.

I then used Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and it removed various malware created by the virus and was able to remove everything but catsrvu.dll

I went on to use combofix using specific removal script as well as avenger and both failed to remove the file.

Finished!  Terminate.

From what I've read this virus is more commonly known as catsrvt.dll but this computer appears to be infected by it's variant. I tried using all the tools in safemode as well as normal mode and still is unable to remove the file.

Desperately need some suggestions thank you!

Hello

Please don't put the logs in code boxes

Also, I have to say it was extremely dangerous of you to use Avenger



Please visit this web page for instructions for downloading and running ComboFix

http://www.bleepingc...to-use-combofix

This includes installing the Windows XP Recovery Console in case you have not installed it yet.

For more information on the Windows XP Recovery Console read http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314058.

Once you install the Recovery Console, when you reboot your computer, you'll see the option for the Recovery Console now as well. Don't select Recovery Console as we don't need it. By default, your main OS is selected there. The screen stays for 2 seconds and then it proceeds to load Windows. That is normal.

Post the log from ComboFix when you've accomplished that, along with a new HijackThis log.
