a-squared Free 4.5 Unable to remove Trojan-Spy.Win32.Agent!IK


Recommended Posts

At Approximately 2:00 pm today, I was browsing the internet, and a window popped up saying that I needed to update to the latest flash plug-in, and without even thinking about it, I proceeded with clicking yes and allowing it to do its thing. Unfortunately, moments after it had completed, strange things began to happen. In example, I would do a search in Google, click on a link, and the link would take me to a different site altogether, with no relevance to that which I was searching for. I automatically decided that I must have some kind of Virus or Spy ware. So, I went and downloaded Lavasoft Adaware and spybot S&D, and updated their rules, but every time I click scan, it uninstalls the programs. I've tried everything I can think of. I think it's time for me to seek help from the professionals.

Here are my logs.

Open notepad

Copy and Paste the below lines of code to notepad:

@echo off
copy C:\WINDOWS\system32\logevent.dll c:\logevent.dll

Go to File > save as and name the file fixes.bat, change the Save as type to all files and save it to your Desktop.

Double-click on fixes.bat to execute it.


Download Avenger from -->> HERE <<-- and unzip to your desktop.

  • Run Avenger
  • Read the prompt that appears, and press OK
  • Copy & paste the following text in Input script Box:
    Files to delete:
    Files to move:
    C:\logevent.dll | C:\WINDOWS\system32\eventlog.dll

    Then click "Execute".

  • You will be presented with 2 confirmation prompts. Select yes on each. Your system will reboot.
    Note: It is possible that Avenger will reboot your system TWICE.
  • Upon reboot, a command prompt window will appear on your screen for a few seconds, and then Avenger's log will open. Please paste that log here in your next post.


Go to start > run and copy and paste the following command in the field:

"%userprofile%\desktop\win32kdiag.exe" -f -r

This should restore permissions on locked files and remove mountpoints.


Post fresh logs for:

  • Avenger (C:\avenger.txt)
  • Win32kDiag
  • a-squared Free
  • ISeeYouXP

Let me know of any problems you may have encountered with the above instructions and also let me know how things are running now!
