Windows 7: USPS Delivery email scam - 16HCBPEB8T

USPS Delivery email scam - 16HCBPEB8T

I recently got a scam email about a delivery from USPS mail- Like an idiot I clicked on the attachment (I was expecting an amazon delivery from the US at the time)the file was called - it didn't seem to open at the time just sat as a download on the bottom taskbar. I always run AVAST and Spybott-SD on this PC.
After I did it - I deleted the email and followed your instructions using RogueKiller to scan first, then MalawareBytes which found regincd2.exe- I deleted that. (Please see attached logs) also did a full system scan with AVAST which found PUM HJDESK HK_LOCAL_MACHINE (). Did I do enough to remove any trojan virus? Apart from running slow (which seemed to be due to wuauclt-windows!)I haven't noticed this PC doing anything odd ..yet.

Thanks Jacee, have followed your insructions it took about 2 1/2 hours to scan and came up with no infected files. There was no button to List found files, but searching my desktop I found this log afterwards (see attachment). D'you think my PC's in the clear? - I have noticed it's running ridiculously slow at the moment. If the slowness isn't due to a virus, do you have any tips on speeding it up?:)

This looks okay:
# scanned=16117
# found=0
# cleaned=0
# scan_time=1123
ESETSmartInstaller@High as downloader log:
all ok

Download DDS from one of these links:
  • Disable any script blocking protection
  • Double click the dds icon to run the tool.
  • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
    1. DDS.txt
    2. Attach.txt <--- will be minimized in the task tray
  • Save both reports to your desktop.
Include the contents of both logs in your next post.
The scan will instruct you to post Attach.txt as an attachment.
