Hello experts,

I have had numerous issues in my laptop from past 2 days. Looks like it is heavily infected.

1. I get a pop up message of Windows security alerty, which says as following.
Windows Security Alert
Windows has detected an Internet attack attempt...
Somebody's trying to infect your PC with spyware or harmful
viruses. Run full system scan now to protect your PC from
Internet attacks, hijacking attempts and spyware! Click here
to download spyware remover for total protection.
OK Cancel

2. I get a spyware alert window, which says following.
Spyware Alert
Security Warning!

Worm.Win32.NetBooster detected on your machine. This virus is distributed via
the Internet through e-mail and Active-X objects. The worm has its own SMTP
engine which means it gathers e-mails from your local computer and re-distributes
itself. In worst cases this worm can allow attackers to access your computer,
stealing passwords and personal data.
This process should be removed from your system.

Type: Virus
System Affected: Windows 2000, NT, ME, XP, Vista
Security Risk (0-5): 5
Recomendations: Click Yes to remove it from your PC immediately.

Yes No

3. All the file stamp along with showing the time also show text VIRUS ALERT. This text is also seen near the clock in the taskbar.

4. My Task Manager gets disabled everytime I login.

5. When I click start, I don't see control panel, programs and other menu items.

6. When I try regedit from command prompt, it says Registry editing is disabled by your administrator.

Following is the contect of hijackthis scan.

Hi and welcome to the forums here at G2G! :)

Please download ComboFix from Here or Here to your Desktop.

**Note: In the event you already have Combofix, this is a new version that I need you to download. It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**
  • Please, never rename Combofix unless instructed.
  • Close any open browsers.
  • Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.


    • Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
    • Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.


    • Close any open browsers.
    • WARNING: Combofix will disconnect your machine from the Internet as soon as it starts
    • Please do not attempt to re-connect your machine back to the Internet until Combofix has completely finished.
    • If there is no internet connection after running Combofix, then restart your computer to restore back your connection.


  • Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
  • When finished, it will produce a report for you.
  • Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt" along with a new HijackThis log for further review.
**Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall**
