Hello.  I need help on removing this Nasty virus. I downloaded and ran the programs from earlier posts and was hoping someone could take a look at the logs and tell me what to do next. Short of reformat, I'm not sure how to get rid of this thing. Thx, and any help would be appreciated.

    Ok I goofed.  I ran combofix without the line of code.  I let it finish then ran again as instructed. Hope I didnt mess things up.  As for the flash drive, I was using it to transfer logs from my labtop to the offline infected pc. So I scanned it on the labtop and infected pc.  I cant find the logs for the MC2shield.  It has quarantined something on my labtop, on initial run I'm guessing, but now its saying its clean. If I need to do something different let me know. Here is the log.

      > Re-run OTL and click on CleanUp! button.

      You will be asked to reboot the machine to finish the cleanup process, choose Yes.
      After the reboot all the tools we used should be gone.
      Note: Some more recently created tools may not yet be removed by OTL. Feel free to manually delete any tools it leaves behind.



      **************



      I recommended to keep Malwarebytes and MCShield.
      MCShield will prevent infection by computer via USB flash drive, mobile phone or any other memory card.
      And not only will prevent infection, but will immediately clean Memory card or external HDD

      avast have greate new Software Updater tool integrated into all v8 products.

      Or you may update/upgrade your software visiting Secunia Online Software Inspector ...

      Free Online Computer Scan - Online Software Inspector (OSI) - Secunia
      http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/online/


          Click 'Start Scanner'
          Wait for Status/Currently Processing: at the lower left to say 'Java Applet loaded successfully. (allow java to run) Press "Start" to begin.'
          Click 'Start'.
          The scan should take less than a minute or so.
          When done, download and install all the recommended updates.

      Magna, many thinks to you and all the people that have put their time and hard work into combating these virus's.  I tried and tried to remove my self but do not have the knowledge or expertise to get the job done.  Think you again.
