Re: infection in Action

600! oh my lord. i thought i was in trouble when i found 3 a year ago

you might inform your sister that ANY personal data she had on that computer is now public knowledge, including passwords, bank statements, email addresses, pin numbers, credit card numbers and so on. she shld inform the bank if she had a pin number on the computer, credit card companies if she had any credit card numbers on there and so on down the line. many of these modern viruses and spyware do nothing but search such data out on an infected computer and send that data out for thieves to use.

Re: infection in Action

That's not going to make her happy. She still hasn't had any luck installing HJT.

Re: infection in Action

It all happened when she was trying to send me some photos. Her computer came with Adobe Photoshop Album Starter 2.0 and she was having some trouble emailing from the problem so she clicked on the link to go to the software web site and wamm her computer was taken over! Sounds like something is nesting in her computer.

Re: infection in Action

Hi T,

OK, lets try re-naming HJT and then seeing if we can install it and run a scan.

Won't be able to use the version I linked to, as that auto installs.

Try this.

Create a new folder C:\HJT

Download HijackThis.exe to this folder. (This is a free-standing executable version).

Now rename HijackThis.exe to FredFlintstone.exe then try to run a scan. Post back here if possible, if not let me know, there's other things we can try.


Question: When you say SpyDoctor, do you mean SpywareDoctor by PC Tools?

Re: infection in Action

try gary's method first. but, i also recently ran HJT and went to their web site and noticed that they also recommend, in some instances, using earlier versions of HJT due to some viruses attacking the later versions specifically. so, that might be an option also, if gary's method doesnt work.

Re: infection in Action

If we can't get a HJT log, there are other analytical tools we can use to try and find out what the problem is, its just that HJT gives an easy to read log that I'm most familiar with.

Try and follow just one set of instructions, using more than one persons suggestions is a recipe for disaster, as it becomes impossible to know exactly what you're doing.

Re: infection in Action

She gets the same error, even after creating the folder and renaming the file.

Re: infection in Action

Is there a way to generate the log from a site verses installing the application?
