hi my computer is displaying this message on avast after opening a suspicious exe file earlier today(stupid me), please point me in the right direction what to do so that i dont need a full format,
my computer is a hp compaq6910p intel centrino t7500, 4gb ddr2 667 kingston,hs2300 wwan,bluetooth etc. decent laptop i think, anyway theres lots of stuff to reinstall which im trying to get around if possible,kind regards,andrew

Did you update Avast and do a full scan, then have it remove or quarantine what it found? That would be the first step.
Then do this;
download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (MBA-M) to your Desktop.

* DoubleClick mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install MBA-M.
* Be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select Perform full scan, then click Scan.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* When MBA-M finishes, Notepad will open with the log. Please save it where you can find it easily. The log can also be opened by going to Start > All Programs > Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware > Logs > log-date.txt.

Reboot the computer.

Please Run the ESET Online Scanner and attach the ScanLog with your post for assistance.

* You will need to use Internet Explorer to to complete this scan.
* You will need to temporarily Disable your current Anti-virus program.

* Be sure the option to Remove found threats is checked and the option to Scan unwanted applications is Checked.
* When you have completed that scan, a scanlog ought to have been created and located at C:\Program Files\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt. Please post that log for us as directed below.

Reboot the system

Download and run a Full System Scan with HiJackThis and save the log.
Post back here with the MBA-M log, the ESET log and the HiJackThis log.

i, i have attached all scans,hope they help,kind regards,andrew

Yes. Paste your logs into your post rather than attach them :).

The bulk of the infections were found by the ESET scanner on "F" Drive. Is this an external drive?

yes its a external with loads of shit on, it was not connected when i had the original problem but thought it best to scan anyway. i have no more avast warnings popping up at present.

Even though it was not connected when you first got the warning it obviously was/is grossly infected. Do you regularly move files back and forth between the computer and this external drive? Are there P2P sharing files on there? What is it primarily used for?

not regularly moving, its a storage drive most of stuff was off my m8colins usb flash drive he needed to empty it to get some stuff off my pc, yes some p2p stuff on there

Well, if this also involves a flash drive then it is very possible IT is infected also and should also be scanned, or totally cleaned.

What is it primarily used for?

It is used for downloading cracks, keygens and even more malicious crap such as USBThief . . . .

Frankly, it is poetic justice that he got infected..... ;)

PP

I am withdrawing my help on this thread because one of the "tools" downloaded was USBThief - This hacktool goes against everything we in the anti-malware community stand for.
It involves the user's active and "hands on" participation in stealing information from a victim's computer therefore we WILL NOT be involved in assisting what many consider illegal activity.

Because of the above, this thread is now closed.

Do not post again regarding this issue.
