Hello G2G forums,

I have been having a heck of a time removing a pesky version of a "Backdoor.Tidserv!inf" virus. Thus far the virus has not caused any significant problems but I would like to eliminate it before it does, I have tried a scan with my antivirus software which is upto date but the removal is only 'partial'.

I have read the G2G posts on the same strain of virus and have taken some of the steps which hopefully was the right action.

Namely I ran a ComboFix scan followed by a OTS scan but still have the virus on my system.

I have the logs here, hopefully it is a good starting point. Combo Fix results and OLS Results attached as files

I also tried to run a TDS killer but couldn't really get the program to run, at least I think so as no dialogue box opened or anything that would indicates that it is running. Perhaps it is in the background and I don't know it?

Anyway help on the next suggested step would be greatly appreciated as I would like to get this bugger off my system. I should also mention that my PC is a netbook and only has about 1G of processing power so running programmes such as GMER have proven unsuccessful as it takes literally half a day and before all files are scanned my PC goes into hiberation.
