I got this one after going to mozdev.org and attempting to dl "stardownloader"
when i clicked on the link to start the download nothing happened. So I clicked again and again something was installing but the firefox download manager would not initialize. Moments later avg went nuts with virus found messages. I ran a quick scan of drive c and found 218 instances of this trojan.
I used "cleanup", cwshreader and spybot and reran an avg scan and there was nothing found. Please check my HJT log and let me know if I am "clean".

I have edited this post so that anyone who reads this understands I did not get the virus from mozdev.org or from trying to dl "stardownloader", what occured was a symptom of the virus. I also found backdoor agent 8 L. My virus vault now contains 687 files!

Things are getting nasty out there!

Hello Troglobyte,

Congratulations! Your log is clean!

Here are some tips, to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing the following applications:

Detect and Remove Programs:
  • How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Ad-Aware.
  • How to use Spybot to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Spybot. Similar to Ad-Aware, I strongly recommend both to catch most spyware.
Prevention Programs:
  • Spywareblaster <= SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • Spywareguard <= SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • IE/Spyad <= IE/Spyad places over 4000 websites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (Cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites.
  • MVPS Hosts file <= The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your coputer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to which is your local computer
  • Google Toolbar <= Get the free google toolbar to help stop pop up windows.
Other necessary Programs:
  • AntiVirus Program<= An AntiVirus program is a must! Whether it is a free version like AVG or Anti-Vir, or a shareware version like Norton or Kapersky, this is a must have.
  • Firewall<= A firewall is definatley a must have. Two good free versions are Sygate and ZoneLabs.
  • More Secure Browser<= Internet Explorer is not the most secure and best browser. There are safer and better alternatives available. I recommend Firefox, however Opera and SlimBrowsers are good as well.
And also see TonyKlein's good advice
So how did I get infected in the first place? and AntiSpyware Net's spyware article: Spyware, Adware, Malware: What it is, how it got on my computer, how to get rid of it, and how to prevent it.

Thank you for your help. I was fairly sure I was clean, but was not 100% sure. I have already installed many of the programs that you listed and use them constantly. I think I have also figured out how to read the HJT log and know what belongs and what doesn't, (at least on my system).I had deleted the offending item before posting and you confirmed I was correct. THANK YOU! :tazz:
I wish you the best of success in Geek University!
Thank you for your assistance!

I love this place!
