    Hello,

    I went to Housecall today and did a virus scan since my HP desktop has been running extremely slow lately. It found several infections and it removed all but these two:

    HKTL_PROCKILL.A - located in c:\\hp\bin\Terminator.exe (I have no idea what this file is)

    TSPY_PUPER - (TRENDMICRO didn't give a destination of where this file is located)

    System Restore was disabled prior to the scan.

    I've sinced downloaded, installed and ran HijackThis. I also have a small home network. So I may have to run a scan on the other stations as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Here is the log file.

    Hello and thank-you for the quick reply, however I still don't know what to do about the TSPY_PUPER

    I can remove the weatherbug program, but is the TSPY_PUPER a threat?
    :confused:

    * Download Dr.Web CureIt to the desktop:
    ftp://ftp.drweb.com/pub/drweb/cureit/drweb-cureit.exe

    * Doubleclick the drweb-cureit.exe file and Allow to run the express scan
    * This will scan the files currently running in memory and when something is found,
    click the yes button when it asks you if you want to cure it. This is only a short scan.
    * Once the short scan has finished, Click Options > Change settings
    * Choose the "Scan"-tab, remove the mark at "Heuristic analysis".
    * Back at the main window, mark the drives that you want to scan.
    * Select all drives. A red dot shows which drives have been chosen.
    * Click the green arrow at the right, and the scan will start.
    * Click 'Yes to all' if it asks if you want to cure/move the file.
    * When the scan has finished, look if you can click next icon next to the files found: IPB Image
    * If so, click it and then click the next icon right below and select Move incurable as you'll see in next image:
    IPB Image
    This will move it to the %userprofile%\DoctorWeb\quarantaine-folder if it can't be cured. (this in case if we need samples)
    * After selecting, in the Dr.Web CureIt menu on top, click file and choose save report list
    * Save the report to your desktop. The report will be called DrWeb.csv
    * Close Dr.Web Cureit.
    * Reboot your computer!! Because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
    * After reboot, post the contents of the log from Dr.Web you saved previously in your next reply together with a new Hijackthislog and the log from SDfix.

    and then click scan/clean. After it finishes scanning and cleaning post
    the log here with a new hijack this log.

    Note: this is a very thorough scanner, it might take anything up to an hour
    or more, depending on how many drives you have and how badly infected your
    pc is.



    Highlight the portion of the scan that lists infected items and hold
    CTRL + C to Copy then paste it here. The whole log with be extremely
    big so there is no way to copy the whole thing. I just need the
    infected items list.




    post another hijack this log, the dr web, the AVG Anti-Spyware log and the Mwav scan log.
