    You will probably get a better response if this was in the Security Forum. I will contact a Moderator to have the thread moved.

    Go to http://computercops.biz/downloads-cat-14.html , and download the latest version of CWShredder by Merijn Bellekom, the creator of HijackThis.
    Before you run it.....check for and download any updates.Press 'Fix', and allow it to fix all it finds.
    And remember to click "Fix" (Not "Scan only")
    After its done its thing hit the"How do i prevent reinfection" tab....
    In particular pay attention to the patches for the operating system regarding the ByteVerify vulnerability which is how you got infected in the 1st place.

    When it is finished restart your computer.
    ======================================

    ================================================
    Run hijackthis again and put a checkmark against whatever is left of these entries....double check
    in case you miss anything....
    .....then,close all browser and outlook windows including this one and "fix checked"

    Reboot into safe mode by following instructions here: http://helpdesk.its.bethel.edu/resnet/Documents/Antivirus/Safemode.html
    then as some of the files or folders you need to delete may be hidden do this:
    Open Windows Explorer & Go to Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and untick "hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"
    Click "Apply" then "OK"

    Locate and delete:
    c:\windows\scvhost.exe
    And if there:
    c:\windows\svchost.exe

    ==============================
    Empty the Recycle Bin.

    Open internet Explorer Click on "Tools">"Internet Options">And delete temp internet files.
    And clean out your %Userprofile%\Local Settings\Temp
    folder. [It's a good idea to do that regularly.]
    ==============================
    Go to Internet Options>Programs
    Click the "Reset Web Settings" Button to reset your prefered home and search pages.
    ==============================
    Turn off System Restore:

    On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
    Click Properties.
    Click the System Restore tab.
    Check Turn off System Restore.
    Click Apply, and then click OK.
    Restart your computer and post another log.

    When you are sure you are clean turn it back on and create a restore point.

    ;)
