Is it possible to work from a HiJack This scan only? If not, any suggestions on how to make the the AdAware or other programs run?
HELP! I've been reading the posts on this topic because this trojan showed up on my computer several weeks ago. I downloaded the AdAware, CWShredder, Spybot S&D, Housecall, Pandasoftware, TDS-3, Windows Updates, SpyDoctor, and Hijack This from your site and saved them into a separate file; the HiJack This is in its own folder.
With the exception on CWShredder, none of these program will install much less run. CWShredder didn't find any infection by that virus. I continue to receive messages such as C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\*******\tmp setup denied or file is in use by another program. Asterisks signify any one of a variety of files similar to \is-F5D5 or \is-S5BCQ. The AdAware file wizard is in use by another program \~GLC1034.TMP.
Tried running 'scannow' but START RUN can not find sfc.exe file. Browsed for file and it doesn't seem to exist. Tried running the same thing in SAFE MODE with the same results. Can't install or delete any programs and haven't had any success in using the recovery disc because there seems to be a problem with the boot up from the CD ROM.
Ran a McAfee virus scan and it took about three hours and scanned 54,000 files. Looked like 1/3 of theose were in the C:\TEMP and most had a .gif file extension; when I look in C:\TEMP there are no files, folders etc. Tried showing hidden files and folders with same results.
I know you need a posting of the log so if you can tell me how to accomplish running one, I'll gladly provide it.
Thank you for your assistance.
