How to Remove Viruses/Trojans on First Scan/Detect
« on: September 27, 2004, 04:13:09 PM »
Hello All:

First Time Avast 4 user here.

During my first scan with the software, several viruses and trojans were detected.  I am running Windows 2000.

When I hit repair, I get a message saying that the program cannot repair them because there is no Virus Recovery Database.  How do I get the database established so that Avast can remove the viruses/trojans and then repair the files.  The infected files are WINNT files, so I do not think it wise to just delete them.  

Many thanks for any and all help on this.

Welcome to this board.


Run a boottime scan.

start Avast > Menu > plan boot scan

Let us know if the problem is solved after doing so.

Hey Eddy:

Thanks for the recommendation.  Just tried your suggestion.

However, when Avast found a trojan or a virus, I pushed the number next to repair and got the following:

Repair: Error 42060

same thing happened whether I pushed Repair or Repair All.

Would appreciate your suggestions on the next step to do or try.

Many thanks again....

42060 AVAST_REPAIR_NOTREPAIRED      [File was not repaired]

Not every infected file can be repaired. Some are the infection itself. Choose the "move to chest", "move" or "delete" option.

Let us know how it is going. Also post a HijackThis log here and let us have a look at it.

Before you choose "Delete",
please tell us exactly WHAT viruses were found WHERE.. (full path/folder/filenames) -> see avast's report/logs

Hey Eddy:
Will do as you advise, but would appreciate some additional info on three  follow up questions:

1. What does "move to chest" actually do?  I could not find anything in AVAST help to explain that.

2. Will moving WINNT-located files to the chest - or deleting them - crash my system since they are in the WINNT-related files?

3. In your message,  you said
Also post a HijackThis log here and let us have a look at it.

What is a HijackThislog?

Many thanks again Eddy - your help is mucho appreciated.

"move to chest" moves the files to a special folder within the Avast folder. Avast protects that folder so the system doesn't access the files there. This will make sure the infected files won't do harm. While in the chest, you can anlyze them further to see if they are really infected (need to be deleted) or not. If it is safe to delete them, you can do it from there. If it for whatever reason turns out that a file is falsly detected as infected, you can place it back to it's original location from there.

For HijackThis, look HERE

Files in the winnt folder doesn't mean they are system files. Many virusses place one or more files there as well do legitimate applications.

Hey Eddy:

Downloaded and Ran Hijackthis as you suggested: The log is as follows. While your looking at the log, I will try and retun AVANT during boot up and move the files to the chest.  I'll come back here to the post after that is finished and report the results.

Continued thanks guy.

Two questions:
1. Can you tell me how to disable system restore so I can follow your instructions in your recent post to run hijack this again.  I went to help in windows and could not find system restore in the help files.

2. When I rerun hijackthis, and if I find any of the lines you highlighted, what should I do - delete them or just copy the log and report back here first?

Continued thanks.....whenever your in Atlanta...lunch is on me!!

1] Enable/disable system restore

2] Put a checkmark in front of the items I mentioned in HijackThis and click on FIX

3] The things Avant found sure look harmfull. Check them on JOTTI to make sure. If they are indeed harmfull, remove them.

Good luck.

Hey Eddy:

Followed your instructions: ran hijackthis and "fixed" all the offending files you identified. Ran avant again and moved all found infected files to an avant folder.     I then went to jotti and evaluated each - and each showed up as infected:

dgj.exe
emzums.exe
epjwid.exe
fkrabi.org
installo22.exe
randomize.dll
scvhosting.exe
wehbuo.dat
winadx.dll
xgbykn.dat
xxvsgc.txt

Next steps:

1. Do you recommend I just use the delete key to delete them (and then clean the waste basket)?
2. Do I need to do any specific backups or emergency disk procedures before deleting them?


Continued thanks.....

- Yup, delete those files. They do definatly not belong on your system.
- Remove them from the recycle bin.
- Reboot and run a full system scan.
- Run HijackThis again and post a new log here.

We are almost there ;)
