I have turned my laptop on today and it has come up with a Threat Detected box. The file is a Trojan horse Hider.MPR.
Filepath is C:\Documents and Settings\---------\Local Settings\Temp\vrximntq.sys
(The ------ is my name)
The resident shield says that the "Object is inaccessible" so cant delete it. I started a full computer scan and it started then finished immediatley after scanning 0 files. The laptop wont connect to the wireless network connection (or if it does, it drops out straight away) and thus cannot update AVG.
I am using AVG Version 10.0.1392
Virus database version: 1520/3827
Any help will be very much appreciated. I looked at the "read before posting" thread about screenshots etc but as above, cant connect it to internet to upload.
The laptop is running windows XP Professional.
UPDATE: The laptop now says it is connected to the wireless internet connection, but when i try to update AVG it keeps saying it was unable to connect with the update server.
AVG has now removed 9 Win32/Zbot.G from dll files (application data files for Java and spotify)
The trojan re-appears after every reboot and has blocked internet traffic to the AVG sites and forums, and every other mainstream virus removal site. I managed to get out onto the internet by using a webproxy, but have so far failed to remove the trojan. The hosts file appears untouched, so it must be doing something in the registry.
Also the AVG Whole system scan, finishes after scanning no files at all. I have tried to alter the scan, but it always results in 0 files scanned.
Attached is a zip file of the gmer output, msinfo32 and the resident/scan csv files. Hopefully you can help me.
when turning on my computer is comes up with a "windows command processor" promt, i try to cancel this but its keeps coming back up. When i select continue it comes up with threat found "trojan horse hider.mpr"
i have run numerous avg scans and downloaded your recommended malware sofware. i have also tried what has been said in this thread but nothing is working.
