Glad you got it sorted...keep an eye on your PC's behavior just to be safe. Alureon is known for introducing a slew of viruses/malware into your PC.

You may wish to run TDSSKiller one more time - click the "Change Parameters", check the 2 lower boxes (Additional Options) then run it so it can clean up any remnants.

Good Morning SevenForums Professionals (PETEY & Borg) :)

Just doing a courtesy follow up to let you guys know everything is okay and that I ran TDSSkiller, MBRcheck, aswMBR, MSE, WDO, MalwareBytes, Hitman pro. NO THREATS DETECTED!! :) As directed I will continue to monitor my system more carefully with these tools from time to time.

Alureon.E is a very very NASTY, to anyone that has this virus... Listen to my personal short story on this..

This will save you $1500.00 in damages

Personally I think the Alureon.E partition boots before your windows partition does... By the time you get to the login screen your computer is already a (DRONE OR SLAVE PC) and under complete control of the attacker/controllers of this vicious malware. To say this Alureon.E virus is bad, terrible, malicious is an complete utter understatement....

The Alureon.E virus took control of my entire COMPUTER as well as explorer.exe and firefox browser. I have an tree cutter website that I own through GoDaddy. Not knowing I logged into my Godaddy Desk account via Firefox about 5 days ago..... This Alureon.E virus injected an js. file into my HTML files and SQL data base servers over at GoDaddy turns out this file was the Alureon.E Malware file itself.

My tree cutting website had been taken over to spread the virus.. COMPLETELY Hijacked, and was a complete malware site.... So that anyone that visited my site was infected.

GOOGLE AND FIREFOX/Mozilla Flagged my site and it was not viewable thru chrome or FireFox.

I had pay to have a professional web master 3 days ago take my entire site down (EVERY SINGLE FILE) that was on GoDaddy to prevent further infection of innocent viewers. ($1100.00) spent.

And have them scanned before bringing up the site again. And added HTMLpurifier to prevent the takeover of my site in the future. (labor to have this done) $400.00 by a webmaster.... Currently having GOOGLE reviewing my site so that it is released as safe to surf and view. (FREE)
Which will be shortly...

The moral of the story... Do exactly as (Petey and Borg) instructs you.

Take the computer completely offline (NO INTERNET ACCESS for the INFECTED COMPUTER) this thing will respawn and download the missing parts of itself taken out by Antivirus software.

If you're stubborn and wish to continue using the infected PC... (ALL of your BANKING DATA, WEBSITE, PROFILE INFORMATION, External Flash drives, External Harddrive is ALREADY STOLEN AND the VIRUS LIVES THERE) Let me repeat this in RED... YOUR INFORMATION IS ALREADY STOLEN!!! transferring files OLD files to your new COMPUTER only spreads the virus in parts #FACT !!! Buying a new COMPUTER won't save you and isn't the answer and putting your old files on you're new computer or Harddrive or clean install harddrive... is like buying a new car and cutting the wires and expecting it to function properly.

Alureon.E is more than a virus I think personally... This DAMN thing NEEDS TO BE renamed ASAP!!

Someone figure out a name........ Do NOT down play the fact that it says TROJAN or VIRUS... this thing (ALUREON.E) means either you delete the partition with the help of professional like (PETEY & Borg) or simply replace your harddrive and/or entire COMPUTER. (No Internet Access).

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DELETE ANYTHING ON YOUR COMPUTER Without the HELP of professionals here!! Alureon.E is damn near indeathless,everliving,ceaseless!!

As a personal precaution... My computer that was infected (BUT NOW CURED) is on punishment/grounded from dealing with personal data like (Banking, FB,twitter..etc) and will be monitored extensively over the next 30 days.

To ensure it can be trusted once again.

Feel free to ask any question.... as to my experience with (Alureon.E/redirecting browser/trojan/virus) I am here to tell you about my personal experience.

Glad it's working well again, keep an eye on things. Glad we could help.

Yes, Alureon writes a cloaked partition that it boots from every time you launch your system. It's already running once Windows starts to boot. Sometimes it shows up in Windows disk management, most of the time it won't.

You might want to consider adding NoScript to your Firefox browser. It's good for stopping "fly by" infections. A web site can have a hidden code embedded in it and just by going there, it will d/l & infect the machine without your knowledge.

As a general rule, never keep anything personal on a PC that's connected to the web. SS numbers, bank accounts & other personal info should be left off whenever possible.

Safe computing to you....
