Windows 7: Trojan, Please HELP!!!

Trojan, Please HELP!!!

Well, I’m a little embarrassed to say, I’ve been hit with a rather nasty Trojan. McAfee detected it right away, and I told it to quarantine the junk, and I assumed it had… until IE kept opening with random junk pages I didn’t prompt it to open.

I therefore, did not write down the name of the malware, or even bookmark the info page that came up about it – as again, I thought McAfee had taken care of it. I remember something about “Auto” and it ending in .CO though, anybody know what the rest of it is or could be?

Anyway, I foolishly neglected to set weekly restore points, and so I cannot roll the system back to said restore points (I assumed that was already set up, but it isn’t). So, with that said how can I get rid of this and also how can I set up these weekly restore points so I don’t ever have to consider factory restoring again because of this problem?

I’m running a free trial of A-Squared right now, but I don’t know if that’s going to take care of it yet or not.

Thanks in advance for any help or information…

Download Malwarebytes and scan your PC (Full scan)
Download: Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Free Download and Reviews - Fileforum

Also for your antivirus download Microsoft Security Essentials its free.
Download: http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

Scan with MSE first than malwarebytes... both of them work great together to protect your PC. Hope I helped

Im sure either one or both will find the virus and destroy it

Thank you so much! Where McAfee, Microsoft Malicious Remover Tool and A-Squared failed, MBAM took care of it! Again, thank you so, so, so much! You just saved me hours of restores!

I would really like to know how I can set up system restore points to save on the hard disk though, in case this ever happened again and for whatever reason, antivirus removals fail. Any help on that would again, be very much appreciated!

EDIT: I know how to do this manually, but I would like to somehow set it up to do it automatically once a week, at a specific day and time. Thanks again for the help in advance!

well....alternatively you can try......
Comodo Time Machine Data Recovery with Comodo Time Machine | Comodo
or
RollBack Rx - Windows System Restore Software - Download Today

the former is free the latter a paid software

but the best is drive/image backup on an external hdd

Yeah, I was thinking about that too. Ghosting right? I think I would have to partition the External for that... a bit beyond my expertise.


UPDATE: I still have crap on here, actually. I don't know why, but it keeps coming back and I think it's "Zwangi". I'm running a full scan, but I think it won't work either. I don't know. I might have to just wipe everything out and then restore from the disks I made (thank God I did that)! If this doesn't work, should I try it in safemode with networking - before dealing with the pain in the butt that is resorting to factory image?

Trying that now... let's hope this works.

And of course, they want my money before getting rid of it.

I give up, I'm broke. I can't pay for it. So... factory image restore it is.

Hi there
consider a commercial backup product such as Acronis -- thei is quite a popular one and can restore images directly from a bootable USB or DVD.

Macrium is another one -- I haven't used macrium but I gather its highly regarded as well and its free.

After a CLEAN install of your OS you should take an image and use it to restore after any computer infection.

I would NEVER trust a machine again if it had been infected . A complete restore IMO is the only safe solution.

Cheers
