Emachine t3302 cleanup of many infected files

\015 I have a emachine t3302 and got it from a friend and of course it's totally infested with tons of malware and viruses. I"ve managed to clean most of it out although in the long run I'll prob end up re'formatting) but for now it's running fine except for some files in the system32 dir that were infected. I did an avast reboot and then scanned. It found a few infections in some temp internet files which is no big deal but a few were in system and sys32 folder. It wouldnt let me repair but then right after II chose tomove to chest and it sed the file isnt able to be processed. I'm guessing this is a morphing virus of some type that changes its nae as soon as its detected. So I "deleted" the last five infected files that gave me the same probs. The scan is currently still running but I'm wondering (cause i dont usually work with dells) i'm hoping these deletions dont cause a problem booting and if so how and where can i find file replacements? also to m ake things even more challenging, of course the pc did not come with restore discs. lol ANy input? email me at [email protected] Thanks alot\015

Answers :

Well there are a lot of ifs ands or buts. Every infected system should have important files backed up and then the operating system reinstalled. Holes have been punched in the security and may only lead to immediate reinfection. You don't know what ports were opened, what back doors, or modified system files are there, etc. If you need to get it clean first to get important files off. Your best bet is to run a virus scan in safe mode. This wont run the resident viruses as start and allow you to remove the locked files. You should use a program like hijack this to create a log of all running processes and post it so we can look through to see what may still be running and do a more targeted attack with a tool built to remove it. If the OS gets blasted most package system (brands) have restore partitions by pressing F11 or shift+F11 at startup. If your machine doesnt respond to this, you've got to reinstall with windows. In most cases you'll need an OEM windows disk that is the same os as the microsoft tag on the back of the PC, and can just re-use the key printed on the microsoft certificate on the machine. There are many more deep recovery methods you can use such as running a preinstallation envirment such as Bart PE, or using the windows Recovery Console, but those are very advanced, and as your knoweledge grows, should be become part of your aresenal.

All in.
1. get off important files
2. reinstall OS

There is really no safe way to fix, the current OS.

Good luck to you.
