Hello there!


Currently using company-issued laptop and was installed with Sophos anti-virus by IT department. Apparently, there is circulating virus within the office and my laptop was infected via transferring data using flash drive. First, I encountered "Skypee" virus which infected my flash drive, SD card and laptop. I asked IT to install Avast anti-virus to remove threats and according to them, my laptop was cleaned but failed to clean my removable devices.


Unfortunately, my unit was infected again when they configured my laptop with the printer/ scanner. Tried to full scan using Avast but the threats LNK:Jenxcus-M [Trj], LNK:Starter-D [Trj] and LNK:Starter-A [Trj] remained in my Virus Chest and I cannot seem to get rid of it. Avast's remarks was "action postponed until next reboot."


You will find the full description of the threats in the attached file.


Could you please help me get rid of it? How can I make sure that my system is already clean and protect my system from being infected by any virus again? Is there any way to save/ clean my flash drive and SD card? My internet pocket WIFI broadband device was also infected? Any way to clean it too?


I am getting really frustrated. By the way, I am also a photographer and I pay much attention to keeping my files and devices, including removal storage devices, protected. Hope you can help me out. Thank you.

Hi WaveBoarder, :)


My name is Valinorum and I will be the acolyte today. Before we proceed, please, acknowledge yourself the following(s):
  • Please do not create any new threads on this while we are working on your system as it wastes another volunteer's time. If you are being helped/have solved the issue/no longer wish to continue, notify me in your reply and I will quickly close this thread. Failing to comply will result in denial of future assistance.
  • Please do not install any new software while we are working on this system as it may hinder our process.
  • Malware removal is a complicated process so don't stop following the steps even if the symptoms are not found. Keep up with me until I declare you clean.
  • Please do not try to fix anything without being ask.
  • Please do not attach your logs or put them inside code/quote tags. Do a Copy/Paste of the entire contents of the log file and submit it inside your post unless directed otherwise.
  • Please print or save the instructions I give you for quick reference. We may be using Safe mode which will cut you off from internet and you will not always be able to access this thread.
  • Back up your data. I will not knowingly suggest your any course that might damage your system but sometimes Malware infections are so severe that only option we have is to re-format and re-install the operating system.
  • If you are confused about any instruction, stop and ask. Do not keep on going.
  • Do not repeat the steps if you face any problems.
  • I am not an omniscient. There are things even I cannot foresee. But what I know took years to learn and perfect the skill. This site is run by volunteers who help people in need in their own free time. I would ask you to respect their time and be patient as sometimes real life demands our time and replies to you can be delayed.

  • The fixes are for your system only. Please refrain from using these fixes on other system as it may do serious damage.

This may cause a nuisance if your company network is infected with this malware too.
