Copied from another message board:
I turned it on the other day, Saturday I think, and noticed some phony "antiviirus" program installed called PC cleaner. Obviously not used for the advertised purposes, I uninstalled it (which only took half a second, and left me suspicious) and searched through a few folders for anything suspicious. Today I turned on the computer and AVG warned me of three threats, and the PC-cleaner warned of some threat, but of course clicking on the warning just brought up the purchase window. Realizing I hadn't completely deleted it, and that it was, in fact, intended as a Trojan, I attempted to open the task manager which gave me "Task Manager has been disabled by your administrator". I booted in safe mode, ran Ad-Aware, Spybot, and AVG free, only AVG detected anything which were all supposedly deleted, I manually deleted "antiviirus.exe" from Program files, and searched for any other files of similar names. I tried a system restore but apparently I can't restore to any of the available points.



I ran an updated Spybot today and immunized which allowed me access to the task manager, but there's still some process called "crufyfut.exe".

See anything suspicious?
Thanks.

Repairing via an XP disk asks for a password of which I'm not aware.

The only detrimental effects seem to come from crufyfut.exe along with one or two other processes by names of random letters. Is there any way besides MSconfig to prevent certain processes from running at any time? There were two associated with the virus on the boot.ini list, but both were of different names than the processes that were actually causing the trouble.
