    I am using Windows Vista Home Premium

    I was scanning my computer with NOD32 and soon it gave me a message saying that my computer is infected by Win32/GreyBird Trojan. I read the description and I beleive it was one of the System Volume Information\_restore..... .DLL that was infected so I deleted it. However, those infected DLL's just keep coming and soon I was too afraid to continue to delete these DLL and stopped.

    Here is a Log of the NOD32 before I stopped it and a Log of HiJack This


    Please help....how may I fix this?

    I have no idea how this became reality:mad::mad:

    My AVG is still scanning, but I am worried so I am posting the "so-far" screenshot of my scanning and want to know whether I can delete them or not after the scan. Any consecutive infected files are basically the same under

    C:\System Volume Information\_restore.......

    UPDATE: OVER 90 VIRUSES NOW......PLEASE HELP

    Please refer to the screenshot

    Just old restore points. follow these instructions and let me know if it still picks anything up.

    To SET A NEW RESTORE POINT:
    1. Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
    2. Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
    3. Then go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
    4. Click "OK".
    5. Click the "More Options" Tab.
    6. Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.

    Graphics for doing this are in the following links if you need them.
    How to Create a Restore Point.
    How to use Cleanmgr.

    The second scan seemed OK, however I found something really weird.

    After the very first scan where I had to delete those viruses, I had a problem with the Programs and Features in Control Panel. All the programs in the list seemed weird and when I click on most of them the Uninstall/Repair button doesnt come up (refer to screenshot). Programs have lost their icons and there is a list of random programs without size and icons. Maybe AVG deleted some unneccsary files?

    PS: Also included a hijackthis log

    To clarify myself, I can get to that page but the problem is only programs installed after the virus scan can be selected while the Uninstall Option is avaiable. Other than that, there are whole bunch of wierd programs listed in the Programs and Features, wihout their icons, and the size and the Uninstall option.

    Open Hijackthis, Click Open the Misc tools section Then click the Open Uninstall Manager... button.
    The Add/Remove Programs Manager panel should appear.
    In this panel click the Save list button.
    Save the uninstall_list.txt file to your desktop and copy and paste the contents back in your next reply.

    From what i am finding out, some programs in Add/remove don't have icons and file sizes.
