Hi,

I had an infection from Bronstab a while ago. My VirginMedia PCGuard Got rid of it, and all is well generally...

However, When I go : RUN>MSCONFIG - I can still see that (unticked/unchecked) in the 'start-up' list are:

C:\WINDOWS\ShellNew\bronstab.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\My_Heart.exe
C:\WINDOWS\YOUR-1A8B284513\My_Heart.exe

They are not in the locations that their names suggest, and I have the folders view set to 'show hidden files and folders'

It seems that they are still there just waiting to be re-activated.

How can I remove files I cannot see ?

Please help.

Hi,

Open notepad and copy and paste next bold in it:

regedit /e peek1.txt "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupreg"
regedit /e peek2.txt "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupfolder"
type peek1.txt >> startup.txt
type peek2.txt >> startup.txt
del peek*.txt
start notepad startup.txt


Save this as look.bat , choose to save as *all files and place it on your desktop.
This is how the batch should look after you created it: Posted Image
Doubleclick on look.bat and post the contents of it in your next reply.
