Need help with Win32/Virut please.
I will start out with this: That being said lets move on....
I have looked at the other threads pertaining to this infection and also gone through the read me first sticky and completed all of the required tasks including the Win XP Cleaning Procedure.
(I am trying to clean the system so that when I ghost the drive it does not come back. I ghosted once and it just came back.)
I was unable to run Combo Fix because it kept telling me that the package was corrupted by win 32/Virut. I then tried to run RootRepeal. It will get 3 min into the scan and pop up rr.exe has encountered a prob and needs to close. By running RR on the C: D: G: and I: drives individually I was able to get it to scan. Drive H: Crashed the program. Drive J: Came up with the error "Unrecognized partition type 6 (0x6)!" And would not scan the drive. Drive H: Contains copied Movies, TV Shows and other media. Drive J: is my backup Drive containing Ghost backup images and other backed up files. All of my drives are internal drives. Either IDE or Sata. I am attaching the RRlogs in a rar file with each drives report and the crash log from drive H:. Drive J: did not crash nor have a report to save.
I also went one step further and ran GMER.exe. I am attaching that as well.
I am still having issues with the computer. This Virut is proving difficult to remove. After reading the other threads on it I knew it would be. I still have hope to accomplish my goal of being able to restore my ghost image though.
I have also run the rmvirut.exe several times. I have no idea if it's working but I see little change. It's not getting everything. It did say in the threads I have read about it that it will "eventually" get it all. I'm just wondering when eventually is and how many times I have to run it. I've run it 17 times so far. Hope thats not bad.
I've run Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool as well. It seems to do a better job than rmvirut.exe but it still isnt getting all of it.
I have not run either of these since I started with your cleaning procedures.
If you need more info I will be happy to provide it. The Virus is still there because WMSRT still keeps popping up and so does WinDef. Bit Defender doesn't seem to function anymore.
I don't know how I got this in the first place. This all started on 7-18-09. It seems to have happened when I opened the ports in the router for a new game I installed through Steam. It was Americas Army 3. I have since disabled all port forwarding in the router and reset Zone Alarm Free Firewall so it would no longer allow traffic in or out through previously allowed channels. I will have to reconsider how to do this so i can play the game effectively and remain safe from intrusion. If you have tips it would be appreciated. If it helps I have a Linksys BEFW11S4 V2 Wireless Access Point Router w/ 4-port Switch.
