Hello.
Yes there is.

I have to warn you though, if it Virut, this tool will attemp to clean the infected files. But, if it can't clean them, it will delete them. That includes needed system files.

* Download Dr.Web CureIt to the desktop:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

  • Doubleclick the drweb-cureit.exe file and Allow to run the express scan
  • This will scan the files currently running in memory and when something is found, click the yes button when it asks you if you want to cure it. This is only a short scan.
  • Once the short scan has finished, Click Options > Change settings
  • Choose the "Scan"-tab, remove the mark at "Heuristic analysis".
  • Back at the main window, mark the drives that you want to scan.
  • Select all drives. A red dot shows which drives have been chosen.
  • Click the green arrow at the right, and the scan will start.
  • Click 'Yes to all' if it asks if you want to cure/move the file.
  • When the scan has finished, look if you can click next icon next to the files found:
  • If so, click it and then click the next icon right below and select Move incurable as you'll see in next image:

    This will move it to the %userprofile%\DoctorWeb\quarantaine-folder if it can't be cured. (this in case if we need samples)
  • After selecting, in the Dr.Web CureIt menu on top, click file and choose save report list
  • Save the report to your desktop. The report will be called DrWeb.csv
  • Close Dr.Web Cureit.
  • Reboot your computer!! Because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
  • After reboot, post the contents of the log from Dr.Web you saved previously in your next reply.

hey i started a new copy of vista on my hard drive that i couldnt format (im losing 8gb) and i think its clean, i got a copy norton 360 and its said im clean.for some reason i think avg free may have given me this virus because i didn't install it and i didn't get infected like last time.

now for all the data on my infected hard drive what should it do with it?should i wipe all the data?i have music that i dont wanna lose should i delete those or just .exe and .scr files?
