* IMPORTANT !!! Save Combo-Fix to your Desktop

  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools
    See HERE for help
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.

**Please note: (This applies to Windows XP systems only) If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.


Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:


Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

When finished, ComboFix will produce a log.


1. Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall!

2. Remember to re-enable your anti-virus and anti-spyware before reconnecting to the Internet.

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

OK, I have written a script that will tell ComboFix how to fix some stuff I saw in your log. Here are instructions on what to do with the script:

  1. Turn off your Anti-Virus software.
  2. Click your Start button, go to All Programs (or just Programs on Vista and Windows 7), go to Accessories, and then open Notepad.
  3. Please copy and paste the contents of the box below into Notepad (here is a link to instructions if you do not know how to copy and paste):
    h:\windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-user32_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7601.17514_none_2b5e71b083fc0973\user32.dll | h:\windows\system32\user32.dll
    h:\windows\winsxs\wow64_microsoft-windows-user32_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7601.17514_none_35b31c02b85ccb6e\user32.dll | h:\windows\SysWOW64\user32.dll

  4. Save this as a Text Document named CFScript in the same location as ComboFix (which should be on your desktop).
  5. Close Notepad and verify that the CFScript file is saved on your desktop.
  6. Referring to the animated picture below, click the left mouse button on top of the CFScript icon on your desktop, then holding the mouse button down drag the CFScript icon on your desktop onto the ComboFix icon, and then drop it (let go of the mouse button) on top of the ComboFix icon:

When finished, it will display a new log in Notepad. Please attach that log to a reply the same way you did before. If you prefer, you can save the log on your desktop to make it easier to find.

OK, that log looks better. Just to verify that there aren't any leftovers, please run an online virus scan through ESET by following the steps below:

  1. Turn off your anti-virus software.
  2. Click on this link.
  3. Click on the ESET Online Scanner button.
  4. Put a check in the box that says YES, I accept the Terms of Use.
  5. Click the 'Start' button just to the right of the checkbox.
  6. Uncheck the box that says Remove found threats (this is very important).
  7. Click on Advanced settings.
  8. Put a check in the box that says Scan for potentially unsafe applications.
  9. Verify that Scan for potentially unwanted applications is also checked.
  10. Verify that Enable Anti-Stealth technology is also checked.
  11. Click the Start button in the lower-right corner of the page, and it will begin downloading it's database, and then it will start scanning.
  12. When the scan is done, if it shows a screen that says Threats found!, then click List of found threats, and then click Export to text file... (if nothing was found, then just let me know that no threats were found).
  13. Save that text file on your desktop, and then attach it to a reply (using the More Reply Options button in the lower-right corner of this forum topic) for me.
  14. Close the ESET online scan.

I will take a look at the log, and let you know if anything needs removed.

This section is worrying me a little bit:

windows 7 x64 active av kav 11 yandex version
H:\????? ?????\1000.exe	Win32/Virut.NBP ?????
H:\????? ?????\beertend.exe.kav	Win32/Virut.NBP ?????
H:\????? ?????\durak.exe.kav	Win32/Virut.NBP ?????
H:\????? ?????\happy.exe	Win32/Virut.NBP ?????
H:\????? ?????\tutorial.exe.kav	Win32/Virut.NBP ?????

Are you able to find those files? If so, can you upload them to VirusTotal and post links to the analysis of each file for me?

Due to the way Virut infects files, it is often not possible for an anti-virus to completely remove all of the fragments of Virut code from an infected file. While the Virut infection may be completely disabled, some anti-virus software may still detect the file due to this issue.

Are these files important, or can they be deleted?

Since you've already found the, if you don't mind doing it, I recommend deleting them.
