Hello again! Did you miss me? As i have told you the problem remains. Yahoo!! I'm getting used to this virus, i will feel very unhappy if you manage to get rid of him. I'll report some other symptoms of the virus in case they say sth to you. Before the system collapses some of the icons in the screen turn into pink. They change there colour! Mgrsts must be sth like a painter! I'm mot syre about the one i'm going to say but here it is. I have an optical mouse of microsoft. I believed that when i am closing the computer the mouse should close too. But it did not. This may be irrelevant but i have to mention it. I think that we have to get rid of mgrsts. Unfortunatelly when i delete this thing, the next time i open my PC it's still there! Something like magic. Anyway the problem remains my dear helper and as you can guess i still need your advice.

I may have to pay in order to get it fixed from a store which repairs such problems. Thanks a lot anyway and if you have anything to suggest you are welcome!

Hi again!

Don't do anything yet!
We will get your machine clean, believe it or not.

Looks like SpySweeper made some thorough cleaning for you - please do the following;

Please download;

Ewido Security Suite

it is a free version of the program.
  • Install Ewido Security Suite
  • When installing, under "Additional Options" uncheck..
    • Install background guard
    • Install scan via context menu
  • Launch ewido, there should be an icon on your desktop, double-click it.
  • The program will now open to the main screen.
  • When you run Ewido for the first time, you will get a warning "Database could not be found!". Click OK. We will fix this in a moment.
  • You will need to update ewido to the latest definition files.
    • On the left hand side of the main screen click update.
    • Then click on Start Update.
  • The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
    (the status bar at the bottom will display "Update successful")
  • Exit Ewido. DO NOT run a scan yet.
If you are having problems with the updater, you can use this link to manually update Ewido.
Ewido manual updates

Now open Ewido and do a scan of your system.
  • Click on scanner
  • Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
  • NOTE; During some scans with Ewido it is finding cases of false positives.**
    • You will need to step through the process of cleaning files one-by-one.
    • If Ewido detects a file you KNOW to be legitimate, select none as the action.
    • DO NOT select "Perform action on all infections"
    • If you are unsure of any entry found, select none for now as the action.
  • Once the scan has completed, there will be a button located on the bottom of the screen named Save report
  • Click Save report.
  • Save the report .txt file to your desktop or a location where you can find it easily.
When done, run CleanUp. REBOOT!!

Run a new scan with HiJackThis and post the fresh log here along with the log from Ewido.

Are you still having problems?

Please do an online scan with Kaspersky WebScanner

Next Click on Launch Kaspersky Anti-Virus Web Scanner

You will be prompted to install an ActiveX component from Kaspersky, Click Yes.
  • The program will launch and then begin downloading the latest definition files:
  • Once the files have been downloaded click on NEXT
  • Now click on Scan Settings
  • In the scan settings make that the following are selected:
    • Scan using the following Anti-Virus database:
    Standard
    • Scan Options:
    Scan Archives
    Scan Mail Bases
  • Click OK
  • Now under select a target to scan:Select My Computer
  • This will program will start and scan your system.
  • The scan will take a while so be patient and let it run.
  • Once the scan is complete it will display if your system has been infected.
    • Now click on the Save as Text button:
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • Copy and paste that information in your next post.

Listen carefully my friend...(by the way my helper is a girl or a boy?) the virus must have been destroyed!!!!! I can't find mgrsts and the computer seems to work fine. In case that the problem reappears within the next day i shall report back. I do not understand how this happened because i did the same thing with ewido and cleanup the previous time. It doesn't matter. I can't find the virus!! Bye, bye mgrsts! I really really thank you. If i ever need to ask sth i will continue to the same topic? I again thank you for your help. I do not have enough words to thank you!! I'm really obliged. Good night!

Thanks to your compliments ;)

I'm a boy (at least I think I am :tazz: )

Ok, these are the final steps to make sure you won't get infected again..

Let's clear out your restore points now.

Disable System Restore;

1. Click Start > Programs > Accessories > Windows Explorer
2. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
3. Click the System Restore tab.
4. Check the "Turn off System Restore"
5. Click Apply. An message shows up.
6. Click "Yes" to do this.
7. Confirm with "Ok".


REBOOT!!

Enable System Restore;

1. Click Start.
2. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
3. Click the System Restore tab.
4. Uncheck the "Turn off System Restore" check box.
5. Click Apply, and then click "OK".



System Restore will now be active again. :help: Be sure to set a new restore point, and if you need additional help with that, here's a link; http://filext.com/in...thread.php?t=27

Here's some tips for future to prevent spyware;

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.
  • MVPS Hosts file <= The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your computer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 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 Kaspersky, 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.
And also see TonyKlein's good advice;
So how did I get infected in the first place?

If you want to learn how to help people with malware problems like I helped you, feel free to take a look at this thread; http://www.geekstogo...here-t4817.html

Post back tomorrow with the results of the Kaspersky scan if you still notice problems - also give some more info about what problems are you having.

Keep up with the same thread - I will leave this open for some time to hear back from you first. If everything's fine - I will close this topic. Night!

By the way i do not believe that i have the necessary knowledge in order to help other people with such problems. But i tend to lern more about computer problems and when i'm ready i may try to help other people. Thanks again and i hope for you that you 'll have the solutions to all the PC's malfunctions!

If System Restore was disabled by default - then absolutely - make sure to enable it.

By the way i do not believe that i have the necessary knowledge in order to help other people with such problems.


That's why I referred you to that thread! We have sooo great geeku moderators around here..
They'll teach you!!
As a sidenote;
I barely knew what is HJT a little more than couple months ago. Then I just decided to learn more about HiJackThis. And GeekU is great! (You can see why - I'm here now, am I?)

And to continue - take a look at Tony Klein's article - as well make sure to install AT LEAST SpywareBlaster - keep your anti-virus/anti-spyware/firewall software updated, make sure to update your browsers/other applications you use, as well as make sure to apply any available critical windows updates.

(Keep CleanUp to use it periodically ;) )

No, keep it enabled if you created a restore point. :help:

Also install some of the applications I recommended - keep everything updated too. ;)

I'll wait for your reply - I'll leave the thread open until then. You may also uninstall some of the software you needed during the process - unless you want to keep them ;)

You're most welcome, glad to help!
