This infection seems to be everywhere! 2 of my computers are now infected (I suppose thats what I get for letting other people use them). I have tried several times to get rid of this infection myself...but to no avail.

I know all of you are very busy, and I have another new computer so there is no rush (I've waited a few weeks till after my exams were up to post here). And as two computers are infected I don't expect a quick response - if you're busy it can definately wait.

On the home PC which I'm posting from the infection doesn't seem to be too bad - I can use most applications and can actually still use IE. However, on the laptop which is also infected it seems to have taken a firmer grip (perhaps because the laptop uses XP opposed to the older pc using win98). I did try and post the laptop log first but as soon as I try to log on to geekstogo IE cuts out.

Anyway here is the first log (from the win98 pc). I'll post the laptop's log in this thread if thats ok (if you want me to make a new thread just say so and thats fine).

Hijackthis log 1 (win98 pc):

yea - still have the two problems on the two pc's (see logs) - I'm just not confident enough to get rid of it by myself - not without expert instructions - the last time I attempted it I ended up having to universally undo to a previous date - not in any major rush but it was over the 10 days (5 days each problem) - so thought I'd just post on the no reply topic.

Thanks,

I want you to use this thread. Post a log for one of the computers in this thread. If you choose to do the xp, you will have to update windows to sp1 first before it will be looked at by myself or anyone else on the board. :tazz:

It may be the same infection, but it's on two different computers - a 98 and an xp, which call for different tools. Fixing two computers in the same log and going back and forth and trying to figure out what computer I'm talking about is very confusing for myself and for you. I was going to fix one of the computers and once it was cleaned, and then start on the other one.

I need you to run a log again for the 98 and post the results for the 98 in this thread. A lot could have happened since you first posted it and I need the most recent information. Did you post the log for the xp yet on the other thread?

I did try and create a new hijackthis log on the xp system. But I have a more urgent problem with it now - since sp2 has been installed (i couldnt find sp1 on microsofts automatic update site - that thing is really cumbersome). So now it doesnt even get as far as the desktop. As soon as the loading windows screen comes up it loads for a bit and then just as it would normally go to desktop it continues on a loop of restarting. I have tried to restart in safe mode (normal safe mode, safe mode with networking and safe mode in MS-DOS) but that doesnt work. The other option (to restart in the last working configuration) doesnt work either. Any suggestions? (I'd rather leave myself open to re-infection on the xp system till its fixed so it can be fully update it rather than trying to get sp1 and continuing this never-ending loop).

Thanks,

J-alexander

Running great (well, as can be expected with a pc thats fast becoming ancient). Only thing thats wrong with it is microsoft word needs a good kick to get started once it's loaded - when it has just started and you would normally be able to type you cant. It's easily solved by frantically pushing F1 or some other command button but is a little bit of a pest. It's old though, well expected.

Im happy to report that all traces of smitfraud (or any other virus) are completely gone thanks to your help.

Thanks very much again - much appreciated,

J-alexander
