Very Nasty Virus

Post by Klacea on Sun Dec 20, 2009 2:24 pm

I was searching the web last night when suddenly the "Windows Security Alert" bubble pops up, telling me I do not have any anti-virus protection! Then I get this window telling me this & that is infected, do you want to run a scan...blah, blah, blah. It takes me to Osgard Anti-Virus that I have to purchase in order to scan. Of course I didn't do that, I am not that stupid. I use Avast Anti-virus which is up to date, it didn't catch this though! So now it is morning and here I am, I have found a few posts on this, but as you say each computer is different. My OS is Windows Vista, have all critical updates & I use Firefox browser which is also up to date, Java is up to date as well. I have not started my computer this morning, will wait for your helpful advice and instructions.

Thank you!

Please download the current version of HijackThis from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

  • Double click and run the installer.
  • It will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis\hijackthis.exe
  • After installing, you should get the user agreement, press accept and Hijack This will run.
  • Select Do a system scan and save a log file. This will open a notepad file of everything Hijack This found, copy and paste it back here.

So, I downloaded hijackthis, saved it to my usb flash drive. Tried to install it on computer normal, safemode, safemode & networking. Normal mode...the malware prevents me from being able to install, both safemodes will not allow me to install. Now what?

Try renaming "hijackthis.exe" as "iexplore.exe" & then try to run it.. Check whether it works .

Well, I got hijackthis to work, finally and have pasted the log below. Quite frankly, all that is almost gibberish to me. What now?
