Last week I started my work computer and got the message that it could not connect to the network drive. We finally figured out that the DHCP client was not started. Once I was connected to the network, I ran malwarebytes and there was one registry key infected as well as 2 registry values:

Registry Keys Infected:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\avsoft (Trojan.Fraudpack) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

Registry Values Infected:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\obfelegl (Rogue.AntivirusSuite.Gen) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\obfelegl (Rogue.AntivirusSuite.Gen) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

I also noticed that I had the classic windows theme rather than the XP. The themes service as well as the Windows Audio was not started. Now every time I restart my computer these services (DHCP, Themes, Windows Audio) are not running. They are all set to automatic, and I have no problem starting the manually.

I would really appreciate if someone could help me out. I'm assuming there is still some type of virus or corrupted file.


Edited to add: I downloaded TdssKiller and ran it. Everything seems to be working now. If you think I need to do anything else please let me know. Otherwise, I'm sorry for the post!
