Thread: Persistant Virus infection

    Default Persistant Virus infection

    Im getting persistant infections of spy-ware and viruses daily.
    No matter how they are handled through deletion, quarantine, in normal mode, safe mode,
    I can expect a new virus and spyware to be found the next day or the next start up.
    The names of the viruses vary but
    the outcome is the same...a new virus or spyware the next day.
    Even when the computer isnt connected to the router I can get a new
    virus after I remove a previous one.
    Help please, I have a year's worth of work thats on this computer.

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite
    Software Version:7.0

    Hmm, it seems Im still having problems after following the MRP.
    I'll need a couple fo days to verify and take care of other things before I can verify.
    I think its been a long-time infection since before going to XP SP2.

    Im also having problems with windows.exe and userinit going on the fritz at start up.
    Windows.exe seem to just reset itself no problem, but it tends to cause problems with my wireless nic card utility....Im just having issue after issue.

    Hi!I think they are your last resort... before going into a fresh OS install....If you need to install the OS, please do so... install, update with all patches and before installing anything else please install ZASS.Cheers,Fax

    Hi!Your log looks clean (but I am not an expert)...- 2o7 and tribalfusionare cookies... so harmless, just a text doc. You get them while browsing the internet.- It is normal that you see 2 "C:\WINDOWS\system32\ZONELABS\avsys\ScanningProces s.exe". It is by design. They are the executables responsible for the AV/AS scanning of your system.Hope this helps.Fax

    Sweet, Ill check periodically to confirm its clean.
    I suspect updating windows and re-doing the MRP may have finally cleaned teh system and closed all the entry points for additional malware.
    thanks for teh help as far
