View Full Version : thnall1z

Symantec and Spybot don't detect it, but daily my firewall says 'thnall1z.exe is trying to access the internet...'

A google search finds it on a number of antivirus sites but the ones I checked want me to buy their product to remove it. I'm sure they're great products, but I'm kind of fond of the ones I use now... :-)

Any chance Spybot can fix/stop/delete this in a future release?

Hello scott.alvar and welcome.

thnall1z.exe indicates you may have other problems on the system.

We are not currently setup to work HJT logs (which helpers use to remove infections)

In order for the infection to be removed entirely you will need to go to a forum that removes malware using a program called HijackThis. (HJT)

A good place to start:

Choose a site from the list on the left hand side of that page.
It is a long list so to shorten it in no particular order:

MalWare Removal
Spyware Warrior

Once at the site read the procedure for posting a HJT log, start your own topic and an authorized helper will assist you as soon as possible.

If you can locate any files before the cleanup please send zipped to:

Hope that helps. :)
