Mabutu virus

Somehow, I've picked this up. I think this is related to my previous post re ndis.exe. Has this varius used that app as a carrier, or whatever?

AVG cannot get rid of it, and I can't see its path.

Any ideas?

Thanks, but that site cannot be displayed, even when I type it straight in to the URL bar.

Any other ideas?

Turn off System Restore click here

Start in Safe Mode click here

Removing Autostart Entries from the Registry

Removing autostart entries from the registry prevents the malware from executing at startup.

1. Open Registry Editor. Click Start>Run, type REGEDIT, then press Enter.

2. In the left panel, double-click the following:

3. In the right panel, locate and delete the entry whose data value (the rightmost column) is:
winupdt = "RUNDLL32.EXE <.DLL filename>,_mainRD"

4. Close Registry Editor.

Thanks, VoG, but there is no that path you have given.

Tried sysrestore, but the thing is still there.

Turned off sysrestore, then ran Hijackthis. I saw two entries that may have been causing this problem; dumped them, ran AVG again, and all ok.

Thanks, VoG - I had forgotten about how important it is to turn of sysrestore at these points.
