I have been discussing my computer issues with my brother and he has advised me to message you with the details in hopes that you can help me. I've added on to his thread, I hope this is ok.
We started just before Christmas with a discovery that there were viruses on both of our home computers both are Sonys but one is older...PSW.sinowal.a was a virus found on my girls computer and Trojan.Pakes.abl was on mine. I had originally started posting on WhatTheTech.com before I informed my brother of my Issues. After working with them for several days, I was lead to believe my computers were clean. I went thru HiJackThis, CCCleaner, etc... However, I've been fighting an issue with my computer because my Windows Update will is ghosted out and will not allow automatic updates. Also the new AVG AntiVirus would not allow me to update it. So...I took matters in my own hands and uninstalled AVG, installed AVG Malware/AntiVirus and all seemed to be well. However, I uninstalled the old Spybot Search and Destroy today and installed the new and ran it. All seemed to be ok...tho it says that 58,980 processes are blacklisted...I'm not sure what this means. I also uninstalled the old spybot on the girls computer and downloaded the new version and ran it just an hour ago...it came up with a ton of Errors! Access Violation at address 005E1C38 in module SpybotSD.exe Read of address 00000004 and others had 00000014. Then each line also had file names in it. As the screen scrolled up the ones that were being added to the list were disappearing, but they were all BAD things! Such as, ActivityKeyLogger, Hastalavista, Hacker.ag, FamilyKeyLoggerProDemo, CyberSpy, ActiveKeyLogger, SmartKeyStroke,Contravirus, Hitvirus, Malwareburn, Macrovirus...and this list went on! There was no way to "Fix" these in Spybot, but I did save a log.
I just don't know where to turn and I'm hoping you can help me.
I run Windows XP on both computers, both have AVG Anti-Malware and AVG Anti-Spyware, as well as AD-Aware and SpybotSD. Not that any of these matter if Viruses are set up to disable. This is my fear.
My computer is a Sony R VGC-RA710G
My girls is a PCV-RX650
Thank You for any assistance you can provide.
