Specs: Windows XP pro
Hi there, some help needed please.I recently ran a norton anti virus scan and it popped up i had a hacktool.flooder problem in svchost.exe. I deleted the file and tried to do a system restore but it would not allow me, kept saying 'system restore can not protect your system' or something like that. Also can no longer get a 'live update' on Symnatec so something has been a little messed up.

Anyway now i get a few other errors such as Symnatec secure port being disabled shortly after startup. A couple of programs taking a while to load. I also noticed my 'task manager' button was disabled (couldn't click on it) so i downloaded a little program that fixed it.

Is this thing still in my system? Have run a new virus scan and it hasn't picked naything up but not sure i trust it. Any help much appreciated. Thanks all!

8. The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
9. Copy&Paste the entire report in your next reply.

1. Save " tools.exe" to your desktop.
2. Double click on tools.exe to run the program.
3. By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis.

Link 3

Rename the setup file, combofix.exe, before you download it. To do that once the "enter name of file to save to" box appears as the download begins in the filename box rename combofix.exe to toolb.exe> click save.

Combofix is a powerful tool so follow the instructions exactly or you could damage your computer.

Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with Combofix and remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
Click on This Link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.

In your case to run Combofix do the following:
1. Go offline turn off your Norton antivirus, and any other antispyware that you may have.
2. Run Combofix by double clicking the toolb.exe icon on your desktop and save its log.
3. Restart the computer to get the antivirus running again but leave the antispyware programs off until we get the computer cleaned.
4. Post the Combofix log.

Remember to re-enable the protection again afterwards before connecting to the Internet.

Thanks for all your help so far. The system jams after a while and i have to keep turning it off and back on again. IT has now allowed me inot system restore but the only restore point was 6.15pm this evening and nothing earlier!

I want to run combofix but i cant turn off Symnatec anti virus. Have disabled auto protect but when i go to run combofix it detects that its running and warns me to turn it off. Not sure what else i can do. Will ave another look at it.
