i was referred to your site by a friend of mine and gone through the required steps of eliminating a virus that i seemed to have gotten. i recieved the virus becuase i was running a trail version of panda software and was trying to update it to platinum. in the time i had it turned off to update it someone sent me a bad link. all of a sudden everyone on my aim instant messenger was recieveing messages from me that i wasnt sending. then it all went to [bleep]. .......(rises from the ashes) now. i have loaded all of the suggested scans and done everything u asked. but for some reason the virus has done something to all my exe's. and wont let me turn off system restore. (not good im thinking) aslo when i tried to reinstal programs that were once messed up once i restart its like i never did it. when i reboot i get a message that says "16 bit ms dos subsystem" and a folder open. dont know what this is at all. since then ive tried to put panda platinum 2005 back on to help with the virus but keep getting me the message " error installing ikernel.exe " so i contacted panda and they sent me something that was supposed to help me uninstall it. long story short it didnt work. and im at a loss. please somebody anybody HELP!!!!

Hi SteREOsoul, welcome to GeeksToGo

Create a new folder in your C: drive and call it BFU (C:\BFU)

Download Brute Force Uninstaller.
Unzip it to a folder of itís own (c:\BFU).

RIGHT-CLICK HERE and choose "Save As" (in IE it's "Save Target As") in order to download Alcra Remover. Save it in the folder you made earlier (c:\BFU).

Start the Brute Force Uninstaller by doubleclicking BFU.exe

In the scriptline to execute copy and paste c:\bfu\p2pnetwork.bfu
Press execute and let it do itís job.

Wait for the complete script execution box to popup and press OK.
Press exit to terminate the BFU program.

Next, Please download LQfix.exe and save it to your desktop.
  • Double-Click LQfix.exe and click Next > Next > Install.
  • Leave the default settings, if you change them, the fix will Fail!
  • Now make sure the "Launch LQfix" box is checked.
  • Click the Finish button, after clicking the Finish button the fix will start.
  • Follow the on-screen prompts.
  • Your system will now reboot afterwards.
  • Please be patient after the reboot, there is a script running in the background that needs to complete.
Once that has finished too, download this removal tool and run it:


After that please post a new HijackThis log and let's pick up what's left.
