Has rdriv.sys been removed? [CLOSED]

Hello,

A friend of mine recently bought a computer and installed WinXP Pro. Unfortunately, the firewall wasn't originally turned on, and within a few days the virus scanner (avast) started picking up bith rdriv.sys and win32Rbot-sk.

I have been trying to help him out, and by following the instructions on this forum provided for people with similar problems, I believe I have managed to kill both trojans, (they no longer show up under virus scans, and the computer seems to be running ok).

However, as these two seem to have the nasty habit of popping up just after you thought you were rid of them (sort of like villains in a horror movie :tazz: ), I cannot be entirely certain that they are gone.

Would someone please be so kind as to review the following Hijack This log, and let me know if there is something that appears dodgy?

Thanks Atribune.

I have re-installed ewido, updated it, and run a complete system scan.

The only thing it came up with was a mediaplex spyware cookie. :tazz:

Here is the logfile:

---------------------------------------------------------
ewido security suite - Scan report
---------------------------------------------------------

+ Created on: 6:14:34 PM, 23/09/2005
+ Report-Checksum: AF68022F

+ Scan result:

C:\Documents and Settings\User1\Cookies\user1@mediaplex[2].txt -> Spyware.Cookie.Mediaplex : Cleaned with backup


::Report End

So does this mean that the computer is finally free of the viruses? Or are there some other checks that I should run just to be on the safe side?

Please download http://www.atribune....ds/rdrivrem.zip

Unzip it boot to safe mode and run rdrivrem.bat

Once it finishes running reboot and post the rdriv.txt from the rdrivrem folder.

Downloaded, unzipped and ran the program. This is all that shows in the zip file:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Pre-run File Check ~~~~~~~~~~~~~



~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Post run File Check ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am hoping that's a good sign. :tazz:

Looks like your good to go, running that fix will have changed some registry settings that were affected by the virus you had.

Any other issues?

I thank you for your assistance Atribune :tazz:

I had actually gone through both of those two steps previously, but I needed confirmation that it had actually gotten rid of those two dastardly virii before I gave my friend his computer back.

I am sure his teenage daughters will be pleased that they can have their computer back now! :)

Thanks again, you have made several people very happy. :)
