Hi, my name's erin and i was searching the web for information on how to get rid of the virus or trojan that puts a red cirle with a white cross in your system tray. It's been there for ages and i simply can't get rid of it, and now there are two of them! :eek: I have windows xp and i just downloaded hijack this and got a log file, here it is:

Hi Erin, welcome to DaniWeb :D

Please follow the recommendations and instructions in the three links below.

When you get to the third one, after completing the basic HijackThis stuff (in the first post), go to post #4 and follow the instructions there.

If you have questions about anything, feel free to ask. When you're done, post a new HijackThis log so we can clean up anything that's left.


Hi Dlh6213,

thanks for getting back to me so quickly, i read through how to protect your pc and there are a few things i can't do. I have tried to install norton and the virus seems to be stopping me from installing any programs onto my computer. After norton wouldn't work i tried mcafee and that wouldn't install either, so i'm in a bit of a pickle. But that's not the only problem, i'm unable to access the windows security update because my computer has a pirated copy of xp pro. I realise this is illegal and have been trying to get a legal copy, but cannot afford it at the moment. Could i use another computer to download the updates? If so, would my computer let me install them?
Would it just be easier to wipe the whole computer and start from scratch? Except i don't know how to do that other than system restore, but the virus files could have been backed up by that, so that isn't really an option.
I would really appreciate it if you could give me some advice as to what i can do. Thanks very much, Erin :D


I'm afraid forum rules don't allow assistance with pirated software (http://www.daniweb.com/techtalkforums/faq.php?faq=daniweb_faq#faq_rules).

All I can suggest is that you obtain a legal copy of an operating system.

If you can't afford Windows, there are several affordable Linux systems available, such as Linspire (http://www.linspire.com/product_page.php).

If you decide to get Windows XP, you can find instructions for installing it here:

Good luck to you :)
