I have (had?) the aurora virus generated by Nail.exe in my laptop. I followed the instructions provided in the various threads on this issue and I think I have removed the virus from my laptop or at least rendered it ineffective. However, I am not entirely sure that the virus is gone and that my hard drive is clean.

I am posting my HJT log here. It looks clean to me. Please let me know if Aurora (or any other virus) is still in the hard drive.

One other thing related to Aurora is the following. When I looked at the startup file for the Normal boot option under the 'msconfig' command. I saw a file there that I do not believe exists on my hard drive. I do not know what to do with it. Here is problem in the start up section for the Normal boot. There is a check box with the following in front of it.

hmoadg c:\windows\system32\hmoadg.exe r SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

Here hmoadg is listed under Startup item, the path is listed under Command (note that the 'r' after .exe is part of the location, which to me is wierd), and the software\... is listed under location. Note that unlike other items in the list the location 'software\...' for some reason does not have HKCU or HKLM or any such thing before it.

I searched the web but could not find the file 'hmoadg.exe r' anywhere. So, I have unchecked the box and now when I the boot the computer, it runs all the usual files except this one. I wanted to know if anyone knows what this file is and whether I should let it run at start up. I am suspicious of doing so since I believe it is associated with the Nail.exe file or the aurora virus. I also can not see a way of removing this from the list of startup items. Any suggestions or comments?

Also, when I restart the computer I get a message saying that I have deselected one of the start up items in the system configuration utility and do i want to reselect it and so on. I declined the option but am also worried whether it is allright to have this selective start up. Should I just reformat the hard drive?

Here is the logfile of HJT in the 'normal' boot setting.
