I was stupid and dowloaded a program that was supposed to help convert some .avi files ......big mistake that's when I opened the door.
It started with the computer running a little oddly (slow and not responding well) I ran multiple virus programs as usual and that's when things started to surface. The usual programs (CCleaner, RegCure, Spyware Blaster, Malware AntiMalware, Spybot) I ran were picking up the odd Trojan and then others were not....same old same old. Then I went to run the big guns....Superantispyware and got a blue screen of death with a Page fault in non paged area stop error, this would occur at start up or a few minutes into the scan...it will now run in safe mode after I run the afore mentioned programs. Then I could not connect to the internet and lost my firewall. This has been fixed only temporarily....given time I lose my firewall as the viruses come back.
I would have attempted to boot from CD to cure some problems but I do not have my XP cd as it was a preloaded machine and my old work terminal before my former employee went poof! (my only severance after years of service) So it's an old networked machine that is no longer being used as such, I am running XP sp3. I have tryed lots of rootkit detection programs and was only succesful with Regrun to find some naughty files and used Combofix to arrive at the spot I am at now... knowing that I have various infected executable files (userinit, svchost, spoolsv & explorer).
I would like to get this machine back in my hands as I will not put any sensitive information through this thing on the net until I know it is clean. Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you in advance!
