Hi, somehow I got this Downloader Trojan crap -- took care of it, but I still have windows pop up when I start up in the am -- saying stuff like "windows cannot find (then there are 7 foreign language type rectangles - dash - 14 more rectangles) make sure you typed it right etc etc... then another window with "Could not load or run (the 7-14 rectangles again) specified in the registry,, remove reference" etc..

My System32 folder opens and
ATI folder opens (which has nothing in it, it seems)


When I followed the NAV directions - I scanned the second time, nothing came up as a problem - but went into the registry anyway to see if anything looked overtly suspicious, but didn't remove anything. Obviously though I need to remove something from there...

am I likely to see files in there with foreign language rectangles?? Or... anyone know what I should do here? Thanks alot for your free advice forum, by the way -- people like you guys are a Godsend, no kidding.


PS: by the way, wanted to let you know that I didn't really want to start a new thread, because I am sure this is mentioned somewhere, but... everytime I tried to do a search it came back a fatal error, so I had to start a new thread.

Hello and Welcome to TSF

The security team can help you with those. You are probably still infected. We cannot assist you with this issue here in the Microsoft Support Forum.

Please read this sticky: https://www.techsupportforum.com/f112...ed-203704.html

If you cannot complete any of the 5 steps for whatever reason, just continue on with the next one until they are all completed, and post your logs in The HJT Help Forum; where an Analyst will assist you. However, it is very important to make mention of any of the steps that you were not able to complete.

After youíve posted your logs, please be patient, as the Security Team Analysts are very busy.
