hello, someone rescently aquired trojen.alemod by surfing the web on my computer. I have not been able to take this off my computer because norton antivirus will not repair nor quarentine wininet.dll. i have no idea on how to erase this from my computer so i turn to the best forum i know of with help on viruses etc. if someone could help me on my problem it would be much appreciated. sokme information you might want to know is that right now i have my computer in safe mode and i still cannot deleate the trojan with nav, and when my computer is not in safe mode, i have to take an indirect route to log on to the internet, such as a popup because the internet explorer will not show a window, but will be showed running in the windows task manager. thankyou to all who look.

EDIT: I ran adaware se and it found malware.psgaurd. i was able to remove this, so i changed my computer from safe mode back into normal mode to see if anything has progressed by removing that, but windows gave me a window that said "this application has failed to initialize properly (0xc0000022). Click OK to terminate the application." this was refferring to explorer.exe. i am in need of great help now so please someone try to help me, i need to fix this before friday. (also i am using someone i know's laptop to post and check for updates if you were wondering)

Hello, imprez55.

Download smitRem.exe and save the file to your desktop.
Double click on the file to extract it to it's own folder on the desktop.

Place a shortcut to Panda ActiveScan on your desktop.

Please download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite here:

Please read Ewido Setup Instructions
Install it, and update the definitions to the newest files. Do NOT run a scan yet.

If you have not already installed Ad-Aware SE 1.06, follow these download and setup instructions, otherwise, check for updates:
Ad-Aware SE Setup
Don't run it yet!

Next, please reboot your computer in SafeMode by doing the following:
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.

    Open the smitRem folder, then double click the RunThis.bat file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on screen.
    Wait for the tool to complete and disk cleanup to finish.

    The tool will create a log named smitfiles.txt in the root of your drive, eg; Local Disk C: or partition where your operating system is installed. Please post that log along with all others requested in your next reply.

    Open Ad-aware and do a full scan. Remove all it finds.

    Run Ewido:[list]
  • 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.
  • When the scan is finished, click the Save report button at the bottom of the screen.
  • Save the report to your desktop
Close Ewido

Next go to Control Panel click Display > Desktop > Customize Desktop > Web > Uncheck "Security Info" if present.

Reboot back into Windows and click the Panda ActiveScan shortcut.
- Once you are on the Panda site click the Scan your PC button
- A new window will open...click the Check Now button
- Enter your Country
- Enter your State/Province
- Enter your e-mail address and click send
- Select either Home User or Company
- Click the big Scan Now button
- If it wants to install an ActiveX component allow it
- It will start downloading the files it requires for the scan (Note: It may take a couple of minutes)
- When download is complete, click on Local Disks to start the scan
- When the scan completes, if anything malicious is detected, click the See Report button, then Save Report and save it to a convenient location.
Post the contents of the Panda scan report, along with a fresh HijackThis Log, the contents of smitfiles.txt and the Ewido Log by using Add Reply.
Let us know if any problems persist.
