Hi everyone.
Well,I don't know how to deal with this problem.
Malwarebytes'Anti-malware,found 2 Generic.Bot.H but,there is no way to delete them.

Registry Key :
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{453e36y7-4080-42bf-6to5-27q74a2tn61k}

According to HijackThis log,there are 2 winlog.exe:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [HKLM] C:\Windows\system32\winlog\winlog.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [HKCU] C:\Windows\system32\winlog\winlog.exe

I don't have the knowledge and the experience to understand more than that...

I installed OTM but unfortunately,I have no idea about,what exactly do I have to write in OTM "Paste instructions for items to be moved" field so,I would be able to remove them,by using the "MoveIt" option.

I also found the registry entry (by using run command and "registry") and perhaps I could delete it manually but,I'm sure that,it wouldn't be the proper thing to do...
I would appreciate any help you can give me.

I use Windows 7
Thank you and...I'm sorry for my English.

Hi, Welcome to daniweb,
First we prefer that people begin with the steps found on our Read Me First sticky
You HAVE completed one of these steps and that is running MBA-M however you only posted a portion of the MBA-M log. We need to see the Entire log from top to bottom, not just the infection notations. Please post back with that entire log.
We also would like you to this portion of the Read Me sticky which is the running of
the Microsoft® Windows® Malicious Software Removal Tool
*Due to the increasing prevalence of Rootkits, this step is especially important if you do not run this tool regularly when visiting Windows Updates.
Skip the ATF cleaner and instead use the built in Disk Cleaner on the computer. To access this go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Disk cleaner. Have it clean out ALL temp files there.
Since DDS is not compatible with Windows 7 you can use HiJackThis but the version of HijackThis you used is an old one. Please uninstall that one and download the newest version, which is version 2.0.4

Post back this the full MBA-M file and the new HJT log.


You're absolutely right about "read me first"...no excuses.
The reason that,I didn't post MBA-M log,is because of the Greek language.I thought,it wouldn't be so useful.
Anyway,it doesn't matter anymore.Format was the "solution" since,a black screen was presented,every time I was trying to turn on my pc.No access at all,no safe mode,no nothing!
Thanks for replying back and for your valuable advices.


Yes,I think it was...
Backup saved my life!
Thanks once again for the advices.


One more piece of advice, if something like this happens again and you need to run tools for scans and post them here or another forum where the basic language is English then either use the English version of the tool or run the logs through a translator. There are many available online for free. Here is one I have used in the past;

Here is one translated from English to Greek

The one below is good for various phrases or sentences but have never tried i on a full log so I don't know if the formatting can be held.

Edited by jholland1964: n/a


I hope this won't happen again:)
But,I know that,it's very probable...
Thank you very much,I'll remember this.


It ISN'T probable if you use safe surfing rules, top of the line security programs, don't use P2P like uTorrent or any other programs like it, which is truly the easiest way to get a serious infection and do regular scans.


Well,now I see the translation...it is very accurate!
The truth is that,till now (and I'm a user for many years),I've never had serious problems.
As a matter of fact,it is the second time I use the reformat option and the first time was not because of an infection,if I remember well...
Of course,in any case,you are absolutely right.


That is good to know the translation is accurate. I, like most others in the USA are pretty much "flying blind" when it comes to other languages as we don't learn them here as is done in other countries in the world. I know most others also learn English as well as their own native language. That is one thing very lacking in our educations.


Yes,I understand but,from the other hand,you are lucky,in a way because everybody can speak some English,more or less...
Take for example me!I can't speak very well but,good enough,in order for me to do my "job"!
You wouldn't like to learn Greek,believe me...very difficult:)


Well,maybe it was:)
Any kind of knowledge,including languages,it is good...
I need to improve my knowledge of English and pc stuff for sure:)
