Hey Suli,

Let's run an online scan to see what we get. By the way, how is your computer running?

1) Update Java

  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 7.
  • Scroll down to where it says "The J2SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications".
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Select your Platform and check the box that says: "I agree to the Java SE Runtime Environment 6 License Agreement.".
  • Click on Continue.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation (jre-6u7-windows-i586-p.exe) and save it to your desktop. Do NOT use the Sun Download Manager..
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java version.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on the download to install the newest version.
2) Run an online scan with Kaspersky

Please do an online scan with Kaspersky WebScanner

Click on Accept

You will be promted to install an ActiveX component from Kaspersky, Click Yes.
  • The program will launch and then begin downloading the latest definition files:
  • Once the files have been downloaded click on NEXT
  • Now click on Scan Settings
  • In the scan settings make that the following are selected:
    • Scan using the following Anti-Virus database:
    Extended (if available otherwise Standard)
    • Scan Options:
    Scan Archives
    Scan Mail Bases
  • Click OK
  • Now under select a target to scan:Select My Computer
  • This will program will start and scan your system.
  • The scan will take a while so be patient and let it run.
  • Once the scan is complete it will display if your system has been infected.
    • Now click on the Save as Text button:
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • Copy and paste that information in your next post.

Hi LT,

Sorry, I thought I responded to this yesterday. I'm not sure what happened....

Kaspersky found nothing except the following:

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\Media\Server\server.exe
Infected: Trojan-Spy.Win32.Agent.blb

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\Media\Server\Vista.rar
Infected: Trojan-Spy.Win32.Agent.blb


It's a server I created using win32 extraction, lol, don't ask. But I don't need them anymore, so I deleted them.

Other than that, it's all clean. ;-)

Hey Suli,

Great, you are good to go. :)

1) Clean up with OTCleanIt
  • Please download OTCleanIt by OldTimer to your desktop.
  • Double-click on OTCleanIt.exe and click on the CleanUp! button.
  • It will ask you if you want to reboot, click Yes.
2) Clear and Reset system Restore
  • Right click on "My Computer" and click on "Properties".
  • Go to "System Restore" tab and check "Turn off System Restore on all drives". Click "Yes" at the prompt. (Wait a while for it to finish)
  • Then UNcheck "Turn off System Restore on all drives". Click "Yes" at the prompt. (Wait a while for it to finish)
  • Your System Restore is now turned on.
Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programs:
  • SpywareBlaster to help prevent spyware from installing in the first place.
  • IESpy-Ad to block access to malicious websites so you cannot be redirected to them from an infected site or email.
You should also have a good firewall. Here are 3 free ones available for personal use:
It is critical to have only ONE firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.

To keep your operating system up to date visit
monthly.

To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet read this article by Tony Klien: So how did I get infected in the first place?
