    Hi, I have an ASUS netbook running Windows XP (it's actually the wifes) and for a few days now it gets constant messages after booting up about various .exe files being infected (wuaudit.exe, rundll32.exe etc) and do I want to activate your antivirus software now? These messages seem to pop up every 5-10 seconds + the browser opens and trys to open viagra.com and porno.net type pages etc.

    I have read through a few posts on here and I have booted into safe mode with networking and downloaded Hijackthis & run a scan, the results of which are below, I'm hoping someone will be able to help as I don't really want to reinstall XP on the netbook (bit of a pain as no optical drive) - thanks in advance of any advice that can be offered.

    Are you not able to boot to Windows normally?

    Download and run the following tool to help allow other programs to run. (Courtesy of BleepingComputer.com)
    There are 4 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one.
    Vista and Win7 users need to right click and choose Run as Admin
    You only need to get one of them to run, not all of them.
    1. rkill.exe
    2. rkill.com
    3. rkill.scr
    4. rkill.pif

    Then do NOT reboot but do the following:

    Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here.

    Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
    • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
    • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
    • Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
    • The scan may take some time to finish, so please be patient.
    • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
    • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
    • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart. (See Extra Note)
    • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
    • Copy and paste the entire report in your next reply.
    Extra Note:

    If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts, click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.

    Please visit Combofix Guide & Instructions for instructions for installing the recovery console and downloading and running ComboFix.

    The only thing different from the instructions there is that when downloading and saving the ComboFix.exe I would like you to rename it to puppy.exe please.

    Post the log from ComboFix when you've accomplished that along with a new HijackThis log.

    Important notes regarding ComboFix:

    ComboFix may reset a number of Internet Explorer's settings, including making it the default browser. This can easily be changed once we're finished.

    ComboFix also prevents autorun of ALL CDs, floppies and USB devices to assist with malware removal & increase security. If this is an issue or makes it difficult for you, please let me know. This can be undone manually when we're finished. Read HERE for an article written by dvk01 on why we disable autoruns.
