    Default Infected with Virtumonde & PrivacyRemover.M64 - Please Help


    Last night I was infected with Virtumonde and PrivacyRemover.M64. It asked me to install antivirus software, but I did not, and rebooted instead. It has renderred my background as a white screen and has a large blue/red warning box stating spyware is detected on my computer. Foolishly, I thought my McAfee would prevent this sort of thing and haven't been running anything in addition to protect myself.

    I followed your instructions, "Before you Post":
    I have not switched off the system restore.
    I downloaded and updated Spybot-Search&Destroy 1.6.0 and immunized my system.
    I rebooted in SafeMode and ran Spybot-Search&Destroy result: no immediate threats were found.
    I rebooted and ran Trend Micro HijackThis 2.0.2 and attach the logfile:

    My situation has changed since the post above. I logged on yesterday and received a warning that there was a potentially dangerous change, and was asked if I wanted to allow it. I clicked 'No', and the system crashed. I can no longer start up in any mode, including safe mode or safe mode with command prompt. I receive the error message c000021a {fatal system error}.

    Looks like I will have to look at purchasing another copy of XP and do a clean install as the disc that came with my Dell PC is for restore only and doesn't work.

    Welcome to Safer Networking, I wish to be sure you have viewed and understand this information.
    "BEFORE you POST" (READ this Procedure before Requesting Assistance)
    All advice given is taken at your own risk.
    Please make sure you have read this information so we are on the same page.

    The Waiting Room

    Posting additional comments or logs before a volunteer responds, can push you back instead of forward, because your thread ends up with a newer date. Also, helpers may think you are already being assisted because of the post count.
    I apologize, we are overwhelmed by infected computer and most volunteers help at multiple forums. When we come here, we look for members with 0 responses, when you added to your topic against directions it looked like you were being helped. If you still need help, post a new HJT log and I will respond as soon as possible after that.
