Thank You In Advance For Any Help.

Pay no attention to my other replys in this thread... I was getting used to the forum and I kept making mistakes so I fixed it.

#### ~Candy~

Hi and welcome. First thing is to not post in a thread that is almost a year old You'll be overlooked, not to mention, the thread was already marked resolved.

#### mudvayne37

Sorry about that. Usually boards get upset with people posting threads about the same thing after it had been made a thread already. Also the solution that helped that guy was what i was looking for and other then just copying the whole thread i decided to just bring it back.

#### mudvayne37

Also just to make sure I dont look like to much of a moron I am going to state my problem again. I get an error when I boot my computer that says "Could not initialize installation. File size expected # File Size Returned Different #.

#### mudvayne37

I just downloaded BitDefender. Im running the scan right now. I have a question... Whats an I/O Error?

#### ~Candy~

Input/Output error.

#### mudvayne37

hmmmm... just spent the last hour running the virus scan and it made it about half way through and asked me if i wanted to update and i clicked yes and the scan stopped and it restarted. I completely forgot to update it before i started. It did find one virus that i saw before it shutdown and it said it found it, then it said it couldnt remove it, then it said it moved it. After I ran the Symantec virus scan alot of my programs wouldnt work anymore and i had to reinstall them. All of that on top of this error have me wondering if it would just be a good idea to debug, format, and just start over. And have my network cable unplugged until i install the virus scan. And then as soon as I connect to the internet I will update the virus definitions. That should block anything that i have backed up to disk thats infected right?

#### mudvayne37

One more question... Is it even worth it for me to run Hijack This in this situation?

#### ~Candy~

You need to turn system restore off too. A hijack this log probably wouldn't hurt. Can you check the log for the name of the virus?

If a format and reinstall is an option for you, I've found sometimes, you have more hair leftover in the end

#### mudvayne37

Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\4F9JIQ7D\install026[1].exe=>(Upx) Infected Trojan.SecondThought.C

Thats the virus file. As for DFFR, Its an option... Im just wondering if it would cause more hairloss trying to fix this, or reinstalling all of my programs and running the possibility of not backing up something im going to miss. I know I have most of this backed up but if I start backing it up now I fear that its going to be pointless if its infected because it wont run right anyway.

There should be a virus programmer tied up in a corner somewhere at all times that you can go and beat the crap out of when things like this happen. I know it would make me feel alot better.

#### ~Candy~

Go ahead and post a hijack this log, one of the security gurus will look at it.

#### mudvayne37

The details of my problem are in the post titled "Downloadable Cleaner" but here is my HJT log.

#### mudvayne37

I posted it as a new topic. Thank You for your help so far.

#### ~Candy~

Let me merge this one with the other one, it is always best to keep things in the same thread
