I am infected, cannot boot my computer via CD/DVD, so, now what to do?

1. Clean your temporary files. you can use CCleaner
2. Schedule a boot time scanning with avast with archive scanning turned on. If avast does not detect it, you can try DrWeb CureIT! instead.
3. Use SUPERantispyware, MBAM or Spyware Terminator to scan for spywares and trojans. If any infection is detected, better and safer is send the file to Quarantine than to simple delete them.
4. Test your machine with anti-rootkit applications. I suggest avast! antirootkit or Trend Micro RootkitBuster.
5. Make a HijackThis log to post here or this analysis site. Or even submit the RunScanner log to to on-line analysis.
6. Disable System Restore and then reenable it again.
7. Immunize your system with SpywareBlaster.
8. Check if you have insecure applications with Secunia Software Inspector.

I got infected! what to do now?

first, I want to say, usually when we scan for virus/spyware, it’s hard to remove inside windows, because usually virus is running and don’t allow scanner to close it and remove it, but using a second O/S is hard solution too, so I think the best one is a bootable AntiVirus disc. and I think Avira Rescue System is best, because it has most larger Virus Definition.

The Avira AntiVir Rescue System a linux-based application that allows accessing computers that cannot be booted anymore. Thus it is possible to repair a damaged system, to rescue data or to scan the system for virus infections. Just double-click on the rescue system package to burn it to a CD/DVD. You can then use this CD/DVD to boot your computer. The Avira AntiVir Rescue System is updated several times a day so that the most recent security updates are always available. You can download it from here. You can learn how to use it from Here.
also, if you want to burn that disc yourself with your own burning tool (Such as Nero or…), you can download the Image File (.iso) from Here
After burn it to disc, and before reboot to scan, use CCleaner to clean temporary files and then to use Avira Rescue Disc to boot your computer and do a full scan and remove anything that it find.

after that, inside windows you need to scan for any remaining antispyware, so, you have to:

Download, install and update these programs:

Malwarebytes Antimalware: http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php
SUPERAntiSpyware: http://www.superantispyware.com/
SpyBot S&D: http://www.spybot.info/

scan your computer using them, also try to immunize your windows using SpyBot S&D. During installation of SpyBot S&D disable all residents.

since all of above scanner are on-demand scanner, they would not conflict with each other and of course has not any impact on your system performance.

it’s recommended to keep your computer disconnected from Internet during scan when you think you are infected.

you can do something else too, here is a few of them:

You Can download and run HijackThis tool to get info about your computer and save a log file, and then send that log to some tool in internet that analyze it for you and fix remaining problems yourself manual. You can download it from here. and here is a web site that can analyze the HijackThis log file.

You can use some online scanner too, different sites offer it for free:
Kaspersky
ESET NOD32
Trendmicro housecall
F-Secure
BitDefender

Check if you have insecure applications with Secunia Software Inspector.

Protect against the fastest growing threats on the Internet.

Immunization allows you to take preventive measures against spyware by using methods inside your browser(s).

Javacool SpywareBlaster®

Why SpywareBlaster?
Spyware, adware, browser hijackers, and dialers are some of the most annoying and pervasive threats on the Internet today. By simply browsing a web page, you could find your computer to be the brand-new host of one of these unwanted fiends!

The most important step you can take is to secure your system.
And SpywareBlaster is the most powerful protection program available.

Multi-Angle Protection

  • Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware and other potentially unwanted programs.
  • Block spying / tracking via cookies.
  • Restrict the actions of potentially unwanted or dangerous web sites.

No-Nonsense Security
SpywareBlaster can help keep your system secure, without interfering with the "good side" of the web. And unlike other programs, SpywareBlaster does not have to remain running in the background. It works alongside the programs you have to help secure your system.

I already have an anti-spyware program. Why do I need SpywareBlaster®?
You may already have an anti-virus program, a firewall, and other security applications. You probably even have another anti-spyware program installed.

So why should you use SpywareBlaster?
There are several important reasons:

1.) Most anti-spyware programs focus on removal, which can leaves your computer at risk until you decide to run a scan.

SpywareBlaster focuses on prevention – preventing spyware and other potentially unwanted software from installing in the first place, helping keep your system and your privacy safe and secure.

2.) Many protection programs are "resident", and must remain running in the background to keep your system protected.

SpywareBlaster does not need to remain running in the background to enable protection, which means there are no extra processes running and using up your computer’s memory and processor.

3.) Some programs try to do everything, and may end up doing nothing well. Plus, there is the potential for a vulnerability that affects an "all in one" product to compromise your entire defenses.

Users and experts agree – it’s best to have layered security.
And SpywareBlaster provides a powerful layer of protection against spyware and other potentially unwanted software. It is proven and trusted.

Do I have to keep SpywareBlaster® running for it to provide protection?
SpywareBlaster does not need to be running to provide protection.
After you enable protection for any/all items, you can exit the program and you will still be protected (SpywareBlaster does not need to be running in the background).
You do not have to start up SpywareBlaster each time you start your computer either – your protection remains in place until you disable it (whether SpywareBlaster is running or not).
We do recommend that you run SpywareBlaster at least once a week to download database updates and enable protection for them (or consider AutoUpdate).

Does SpywareBlaster® remove spyware?
SpywareBlaster is a prevention program, unlike most anti-spyware programs which utilize a "removal" approach after your system is already infected. SpywareBlaster effectively prevents ActiveX-based spyware, dialers, browser-hijackers and other malware or potentially unwanted programs from ever installing on your system in the first place.

Many users employ a multi-layered "prevent and remove" strategy by using anti-spyware removal utilities in combination with SpywareBlaster’s protection. We recommend the free and trusted Spybot Search & Destroy (www.safer-networking.org) or Ad-Aware (www.lavasoft.com – the link to the free version is at the top right).

When you install SpywareBlaster, any spyware already present on your computer remains on your computer, although SpywareBlaster will disable it if possible. To remove any spyware/malware remnants, we recommend running Spybot S & D or Ad-Aware. Thereafter, there should be few (if any) items needing removal each time you run Spybot or Ad-Aware, and most (if not all) of the items detected will only be tracking cookies.

How do I know that SpywareBlaster® is working?
SpywareBlaster doesn’t display an alert when its protection has blocked spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, or other potentially unwanted programs. This is due to how the protection works – SpywareBlaster is passive protection and doesn’t require any programs running in the background and using up memory.

To verify that SpywareBlaster is indeed working, just try scanning with a free, trusted anti-spyware program such as Spybot Search & Destroy (www.safer-networking.org) or Ad-Aware (www.lavasoft.com – the link to the free version is at the top right) a week after you first install SpywareBlaster. You should see a dramatic reduction in the number of items these programs detect (if any are detected at all). Most (if not all) of the items detected will only be tracking cookies.

Important Note: Prior to performing such a test, please ensure that you have scanned with Spybot and/or Ad-Aware to remove any spyware (or other) programs remaining from before you installed SpywareBlaster.

Anti Virus and Anti Spyware, That’s not all… you need “Behavior Guard”

“Behavior Guard” tools, protects your PC against attacks by detecting malicious behavior, such as capturing your keystrokes or stealing your data, instead of only looking for known threats like normal antivirus software. By implementing sophisticated real-time behavioral analysis “Behavior Guard” tools is able to stop never- before-seen "zero-day" threats solely by detecting their malicious activity.

ThreatFire™ AntiVirus protects when others can’t

PCs are under constant attack from viruses, spyware and identity theft. Every day you hear about a new threat to your PC. They’re coming faster than ever before, they’re getting harder to stop and traditional antivirus products are not able to keep up.

Will your antivirus software catch the latest malware that just came out today? In most cases, no, because it simply does not know how to detect it yet. But ThreatFire’s ActiveDefense technology does, and has proven to provide up to 243% more protection when combined with traditional AntiVirus products. See the table below.

Traditional Security Product Solo vs. Traditional Product with ThreatFire

 ThreatFireChart

*Results produced by testing over 1300 malware threats collected from the ThreatFire Security Community and secured from other 3rd party sources. Competitor products tested were Trend Micro Internet Security 2007, Webroot Spy Sweeper with Antivirus v. 5, CA Internet Security 2007, and McAfee Internet Security 2007, all with the latest available updates as of the date of test.

If I already have antivirus software why do I need ThreatFire?

ThreatFire is dramatically different to traditional antivirus software. Normal antivirus products usually need to have first identified and seen a threat before they can provide adequate protection against it. The protection is then provided via a signature or fingerprint update, which must first be written by an antivirus researcher. This creates a large window of time where threats are undetected and can therefore infect your PC even when you have antivirus software installed.

How can ThreatFire protect me when traditional antivirus can’t?

ThreatFire continually protects your PC against attacks by detecting malicious behavior, such as capturing your keystrokes or stealing your data, instead of only looking for known threats like normal antivirus software. By implementing sophisticated real-time behavioral analysis ThreatFire is able to stop never- before-seen "zero-day" threats solely by detecting their malicious activity.

Zero-day threats are usually designed to take advantage of new vulnerabilities or exploits that are currently unprotected by traditional security products. They are usually distributed in huge quantities very quickly by mass email (SPAM), website hijacks, instant messaging or over peer-to-peer networks. Because they are undetectable they are able to wreak havoc and compromise your PC even when you have up-to-date antivirus software installed.

ThreatFire’s patent-pending ActiveDefense technology offers protection against all types of internet threats – both known and unknown – spyware, adware, keyloggers, viruses, worms, Trojans, rootkits, buffer overflows, and other malware. ThreatFire uses its unparalleled protection to hunt down and paralyze those threats that are either too new or too clever to be recognized by traditional "signature-based" antivirus software.

Do I need to be an expert to use ThreatFire?

ThreatFire is advanced technology designed especially for people, not just experts.

We believe security software should be "set and forget" so once you install ThreatFire you won’t need to answer lots of technical questions, in fact the only time you should even notice ThreatFire is protecting your PC is when we detect something malicious that requires your attention.

 

Symantec Norton Antibot

Watch This Video to see what’s Norton Antibot, Click Here to Watch

Norton AntiBot provides advanced, real-time protection against emerging threats, including bots that are used to perpetrate identity theft and other online crimes. This powerful new security solution from Symantec detects unusual behavior on your PC and removes the malicious bots causing it. This protects your PC from unauthorized access and tampering, detects and stops attempts by hackers to take remote control of your computer, and delivers extra protection against emerging ‘zero-day’ threats. To help ensure that you’re always protected, Norton AntiBot monitors your PC continuously to stop suspicious programs.

Norton AntiBot provides a simple way to actively monitor the processes running on your computer in order to quarantine or delete malware items. The program doesn’t require an active scan–once protection is enabled, it is monitoring your system in real time. As a minor component in a full security suite, Norton AntiBot is a valuable tool for monitoring active processes. As a full-fledged app, however, it lacks the power and features of similar free applications that manage and monitor processes, ports, sockets, hosts, services, and more.

Unlike the bigger Norton security products, the AntiBot software installs very quickly and plays nicely with other security software you may have installed. It is unfortunate that users have to provide a valid e-mail address that gets added to a Symantec marketing list, but the e-mail address does not have to be confirmed to download the installer.

The Norton AntiBot interface is divided into three main tabs. The Status tab displays the activity of the application, including whether it is enabled, how many processes are monitored, and how many malware items are removed. The Advanced tab lists all of the processes that are monitored, allowed, or quarantined. Clicking on any of the items in the monitoring list will display useful classifications about the process on the right, such as "Window not visible," "Hidden on filesystem," or "Spawns other processes"–each of these classifications create a general safety rating for each process. The final tab, Settings, simply lets you specify your threat notifications, check for software updates, or buy the full version.

Norton AntiBot works adequately and is very easy to set up, but the features are limited when compared with other software of the same ilk, most of which is free and uses a smaller memory footprint. The inclusion of an on-demand malware scanner, or more details about Windows Services, ports, and hosts, would make it more valuable, as would the more general utility of managing processes by assigning priority. Norton AntiBot does not include its own uninstaller, but all traces were easily removed by the Windows Add/Remove Programs dialog.

Key Technologies
  • Antibot
  • Active Behavioral-Based Analysis
Features
  • Actively monitors your PC 24×7
  • Real-time protection against Web robot (bot) attacks
  • Blocks bots from hijacking of your PC
  • Stops identity theft by bots
  • Blocks botnets
  • Detects unusual behavior on your PC and eliminates threat
  • Detects malicious software at the deepest levels of your system
  • Adds extra layer of threat protection
  • Works with other security software

Spybot – Search & Destroy©®

Spybot – Search & Destroy detects and removes spyware, a relatively new kind of threat not yet covered by common anti-virus applications. Spyware silently tracks your surfing behaviour to create a marketing profile for you that is transmitted without your knowledge to the compilers and sold to advertising companies. If you see new toolbars in your Internet Explorer that you haven’t intentionally installed, if your browser crashes inexplicably, or if your home page has been "hijacked" (or changed without your knowledge), your computer is most probably infected with spyware. Even if you don’t see the symptoms, your computer may be infected, because more and more spyware is emerging. Spybot-S&D is free, so there’s no harm giving it a try to see if something has invaded your computer.

To see a list of threats Spybot-S&D can remove, Click Here. For an introduction to Spybot-S&D, please read the tutorial. If you fear incompatibility with other software you are now using, although Spybot can assure you that there is no danger you can review spybot’s compatibility overview which lists some software whose compatibility has been analyzed.

Spybot-S&D can also clean usage tracks, an interesting function if you share your computer with other users and don’t want them to see what you have been working on. And for professional users, Spybot-S&D allows you to fix some registry inconsistencies and extended reports.

A list of all the application’s features:

Spybot-S&D can start in two modes: Easy mode for new users who want just the basic features, and Advanced mode for professional users and those who want more control. Both modes are available in the free version.
