Windows 7: rundll32.exe and virus on $recycle.bin

rundll32.exe and virus on $recycle.bin

My brother downloaded a virus yesterday. It was now deleted in both C: and recycle bin. I run a smart scan using my antivirus. And it found 4 virus on $Recycle.bin. Also, on the task manager, on the processes tab, there is a foreign process called rundll32.exe. Ending this process does nothing I think. Whenever I right click any process inside the task manager (and in the task bar) the menu hide itself behind the task manager so I can't click any options. Is this some sort of virus or what? How can I delete those virus on $Recycle.Bin? Thanks!

Here's the screenshot:

Try to restore the recycle bin to default using this tutorial:

Next, please do the following:


Let see what else is going on here:

1.) Download malwarebytes anti malware found here:

https://www.malwarebytes.org/

Choose the Free version download.

2.) After it downloads, run the installation and install it.

3.) After install, open malwarebytes.

Choose to update now.



When your updated, you should see something like this in the screenshot:



4.) Then choose to run a scan after updates complete.



5.)
After the scan completes, Remove anything found. Restart the computer.

6.) Open malwarebytes. Click the history button.

Then Click on application logs.


Choose the latest scan log, and click the view button.





Click on the export button, then choose text file. Save it somewhere.


7.) Post your results by using the paperclip and upload the log.

BryanJames16,

Please use the following diagnostic tool. It has a powerful detection mechanism, and may help us get to the cause of your issues:

Please use the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool.
Download: Farbar Recovery Scan Tool Download
Select the version that applies to your system: 64-bit
Save it to your Desktop.
Double-click the downloaded file to run it.

When the tool opens click Yes to the disclaimer.
At the program's console, press the Scan button.

When done, the tool produces a log, FRST.txt, in the same directory from which the tool is run (Desktop).
Please provide the FRST.txt in your reply.

The first time the tool is run, it also makes another log: Addition.txt
Also post the Addition.txt in your reply.

The recycle bin corrupt tutorial?

I Still suggest doing what cottenball and I suggested with the scans to be sure you are clean.

I agree with andrew. If you are dealing with something like ZeroAccess, it is best to be safe than sorry.
