hello,
i can't access Task Manager, regedit.exe and Safe Mode along with that i change the file hidden attributes. No antivirus programs run either and my firewall didn't autostart since i think the pc got infected.
Besides that i found a file in every disk drive named "g2pfnid.com", renamed it to something else to disable it. I tried to "fix" the keys by HJT but its all the same on next boot and now HJK won't even start, the error is "Only part of a ReadProcessMemory or WriteProcessMemory request was completed", MBAM did no good either, the task manager still remains blocked. Thanks for all you time and help looking into this.

Download ComboFix from one of these locations:

Link 1
Link 2
Link 3


* IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop


  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools

  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.

  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.

  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.

**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.

Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:

Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.

Download Dr.Web CureIt to the desktop:
ftp://ftp.drweb.com/pub/drweb/cureit/drweb-cureit.exe
  • Doubleclick the drweb-cureit.exe file and Allow to run the express scan
  • This will scan the files currently running in memory and when something is found, click the yes button when it asks you if you want to cure it. This is only a short scan.
  • Once the short scan has finished, mark the drives that you want to scan.
  • Select all drives. A red dot shows which drives have been chosen.
  • Click the green arrow at the right, and the scan will start.
  • Click 'Yes to all' if it asks if you want to cure/move the file.
  • When the scan has finished, in the menu, click file and choose save report list
  • Save the report to your desktop. The report will be called DrWeb.csv
  • Close Dr.Web Cureit.
  • Post that log in your next reply.

(Note if you cannot open the log it produces then right click on it and choose rename.
Rename it to .txt and you will be able to open it)

Hmm you are infected with Sality or at least you were.
Dr.Web cured those files returning them back to their original state.

I would like for you to run a removal tool for that virus as it is a file infector and can be cleaned if the system isn't that badly infected.
Please follow the instructions on this page and run the removal tool. http://free.avg.com/...moval.ndi-67769
If you get an option to save the log please do so and post it here.
If not then let me know how it turns out ( if it says it cleans anything or not).

You are welcome :)
