I have not been having any type of virus related problems since I did the system restore a few days ago.

Why at startup is there a popup window with the options for the Windows XP Professional coming up?
My laptop never use to do that before.

If there any other programs you want me to run to double check for possibly a hidden virus?


Oh! one more thing.

This started a while back even before the know virus happened. After my Avast completes it's scan, at the end I get a message saying "Some files could not be scanned" When I click the log there is a pretty long list of files that say "they may be password protected" It will allow me to select (move to chest, delete, repair, ect...) but it OK button is a dull color and will not allow those selections to work. Make note: This is also happening on my host laptop as well after the Avast scan.

With regards to Avast the files are password protected so it cannot scan them, it does not mean that they are infected

When do you get this popup ?

Is it on a menu at the beginning where you have the option to select operating systems
Or is it when windows arrives at the desktop

Reread the last paragraph of my last post, as you must have missed when it is happening. It is a small pop-up by the tray after the scan in complete. If you click on the pop-up to see the details, a log pops up which I explain in the last paragraph of the post above. It does not allow any options to be taken.

The popup window with the options for the Windows XP Professional is at startup when you turn on the laptop. It automatically goes to Windows XP Professional without having to hit any keys.

Reference Avast we have had a lot of discussion on the forum (Avast) about the wording of that explanation... We are trying to get it changed to something that is not as scary

What happens is that a file has a password attached to it by the programme that uses the file (normally security software) and as Avast does not know the password it is unable to scan that file for malware. However, for that file to be activated it must be unlocked by the parent programme. At this stage then the Avast file and net shields will be able to scan the file on opening and if it is malicious it will be dealt with .


To stop the OS menu

1.Open Computer Management.
2.In the console tree, right-click Computer Management (Local), and then
select Properties.
3.On the Advanced tab, under Startup and Recovery, click Settings.
4.Select Time to display list of operating systems box, and then enter the
number of seconds the list should be displayed before the default operating
system starts automatically. (to not see it set it to 0)

I have 2 more questions for you wherever you get the time.

1. When I went in the OS menu the time was set at 2 seconds. I changed it to 0 seconds and it no longer appears at Startup. Why did it change from 0 to 2 seconds since we started working to correct the virus?

2. I have been having the "an add-on for this website failed to run. check the security settings" message in the information bar, for plenty of websites that I go to, like this one here did a few minutes ago. How do I correct this in my internet setting?


Merry Christmas Essexboy! Have a nice Christmas.

The change was done by combofix to enable quick access to the recovery console if needed

Go to control panel > Internet options
On the Security tab select default settings

On the advanced tab select restore advanced settings

Restart IE and let me know if that is OK

So far so good with changing them settings. I will let you know when I have more time to go into other sites.


Is there any other programs I can download and run, to double check that the virus is gone, or might be hiding out somewhere?

There is one further really deep virus scan we can run.. This will take several hours and will be run from a boot CD so that windows is totally inactive whilst it runs

Please download the following programmes to your desktop:

Dr Web Live CD

ImgBurn

Install IMGBurn
  • Double click Dr Web
  • IMGBurn will open
  • Burn the ISO to a cd
  • Reboot the infected computer with the CD in the drive
  • Ensure that the first boot device is CD - If you are not sure about that then see this page for instructions
  • As loading starts, a dialogue window will prompt you to choose between the standard and safe modes.

    Posted Image
  • Use arrow keys to select DrWeb-LiveCD (Default)
  • When the system is loaded, check the disks or folders you want to scan, and click on “Start”.

    Posted Image
  • The programme will now scan for and cure/delete any malware that it finds. Allow it to do so
  • Once completed reboot to normal windows
  • No log is produced so once in normal windows run a fresh OTL scan and let me know if the problems persist

Hi friends,

I went into my laptop for the first time in a month last night, and my windows froze, so I turn it off by way of the power button. When I turned it back on it went to the screen that says Safe Mode, Safe Mode Networking, Last know configuration that worked, etc... I tried all of the options and every one of them have the same thing happening. None of the options work. After it goes to load windows I get this green message flash for an instant (I caught the error message by way of my video camera)it says "Unmountable_Boot_Volume" (as seen in the attachment below) then my computer repeats these steps over and over again.

What should I do?

Technical Information:

(***STOP:0X000000ED" (0x8AD0FC30, 0xC0000185, 0x00000000, 0x00000000).
