Question about Computers & Internet
I have w32.virut.cf virus on my Windows XP Pro SP2 with Norton AntiVirus 2007 updated fully.It has blocked access to all major antivirus providers' websites like Symantec, McAfee, etc.I am able to access other websites.Also, I get continous messages from Norton saying an 'attempt to attack your PC was blocked'.When I see the details, it has something like this:
Risk Name:HTTP Trojan ZBot Domain
Attacking Computer:SMARTPC(192.168.1.5, 3105)[this is my own comp's name]
Destination Address:lometr.pl(184.108.40.206, 80)
Traffic Description: TCP, 3105
Sometimes the attacking computer and destination are vice-versa.I also get a second intrusion attempt detail with the risk name HTTP Malicious PDF Request with attacking computer lometr.pl
Also, the virus has damaged my system files.But I tried to check the stability of my system by running the scannow windows tool and it said all files are intact.When I right-click on My Computer and 'Properties', I get an error saying Windows cannot find C:\WXPOS\system32\rundll32.exe
I intend to fix this without having to format my PC.Please help.Your solutions will be highly appreciated.
Virut damages so many .exe files you can't seemingly remove it. I finished up reformatting and reinstalling all my software! Except one was on a hard drive so I reinstalled the virus... doh! Back to the beginning.
It also destroyed winlogon files, winnit and even humble little notepad! Regedit went, so did word, IE6, Photoshop, Nikon ViewNX, etc. My virus software was helpless.

Try the free version of Malwarebytes
If you have issues installing it, try renaming the file and then renaming the main .exe after it's installed. Some viruses and trojans can recognize the file name and prevent it from installing/running. Also try safe mode to install and run a full scan.
