I know many of you are probably tired of hearing about gaobot and agobot viruses. however i have a unique problem.

i friend of mine (really, not me) has recently got a new computer hes really excited about. unfortunately hes got the gaobot/agobot viruses.

his computer is always running slowly as four or five unknown processes always take up his cpu usage. these processes are:

hallowelt.exe
enbiei.exe
wump.exe
iroffer.exe

they generally take up about 50% of cpu and change continuously among each process.

after some research i figure these must be agobot and gaobot and possibly some other trojans. now heres the unique part.

if he tries to run msconfig or access the internet or norton anti-virus, they all immediately shut down after a few seconds. so any virus scans, or online virus scans, or downloads of fixes (or any internet access) it seems are out of the question.

I suggested trying to restore his comp to an earlier time but no luck. i've suggested him start in safemode and try to run a virus check to find out specific viruses, no luck.

any suggestions are grealty, greatly appreciated.

btw, he lives a few hours away so im unable to burn files/fixes for him and copy them instead of downloading them.

thanks for any help,

quentez

Since your post has fallen back, I will bump it up for you. In the meantime, I think you should download Hijack This for the experts to take a look at.

Please do this. Click here: http://www.sherrylynn.us/HijackThis.exe to download Hijack This. Save it to it’s own folder (not temporary files or the desktop).

Close all open windows and open HIJACK THIS. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”. Click on “Save Log” and save it to NotePad. Copy the entire log and paste it here.

DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET, most items that appear in the log are harmless or even needed. Wait for someone to analyze the scan and advise
