Here's the problem I'm having. This virus keeps popping up in McAffee on my computer: Downloader-ER, and its housed in 2 files (bridge[1].exe and bridge.exe) in 2 separate folders:

D:\Documents and Settings\My Name Here\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\KHYNCPYJ\bridge[1].exe

-and-

D:\DOCUME~1\MYNAMEHERE~1.DAN\LOCALS~1\Temp\bridge.exe

It won't let me delete or quarantine the files because they're in either hidden or read only folders, all I can do is hit the 'stop' button in McAffee. Even when I search in Windows, it can't find either file, and that's with the hidden files and folders being searched.

Now, when I go into D:\Documents and Settings\My Name Here\ there's no Local Settings folder, and when I go into D:\DOCUME~1\MYNAMEHERE~1.DAN\LOCALS~1\Temp\ there's no bridge.exe.

What I'd like to do is go into those folders and delete the files manually, but since the folders and files are hidden I can't get into them. How do I make my computer show me all of the files and folders in those particular folders so I can get rid of them?

if you have bridge you ahve other problems as well

o to http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/HijackThis.exe and download 'Hijack This!'.
make sure it is placed into it's own folder, not a temporary folder. Then doubleclick the Hijackthis.exe.
Click the "Scan" button, when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.
Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.
It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required,
so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

to display hidden folders depends on the op system but i would guess you are using xp so
Open Windows Explorer & Go to Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and untick "hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"
Click "Apply" then "OK"

don't try to fix bridge yet though or you will leave registry entries behind and keep getting warning messages. Also it won't let you delete it without killing the start up entry first.

post the log and we'll advise the way to fix it properly and any other problems we find

You have a few problems as suspected please do this, it takes a couple of stages to cure all the parasites, so expect a few still after doing this

Download and unzip or install these programs/applications if you haven't already got them. If you have them, then make sure they are updated and configured as described

Spybot - Search & Destroy from http://security.kolla.de
AdAware 6 from http://www.lavasoft.de/support/download


Run Sybot S&D

After installing, first press Online, press search for updates, then tick the updates it finds, then press download updates. Beside the download button is a little down pointed arrow, select one of the servers listed. If it doesn't work or you get an error message then try a different server

Next, close all Internet Explorer and OE windows, press 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds that is marked in RED.

then reboot &

Run ADAWARE

Before you scan with AdAware, check for updates of the reference file by using the "webupdate".
the current ref file should read at least 01R275 25.03.2004 or a higher number/later date

Then ........

Make sure the following settings are made and on -------"ON=GREEN"
From main window :Click "Start" then " Activate in-depth scan"

then......

click "Use custom scanning options>Customize" and have these options on: "Scan within archives" ,"Scan active processes","Scan registry", "Deep scan registry" ,"Scan my IE Favorites for banned URL" and "Scan my host-files"

then.........

go to settings(the gear on top of AdAware)>Tweak>Scanning engine and tick "Unload recognized processes during scanning" ...........then........"Cleaning engine" and "Let windows remove files in use at next reboot"

then...... click "proceed" to save your settings.

Now to scan it´s just to click the "Scan" button.

When scan is finished, mark everything for removal and get rid of it. (Right-click the window and choose"select all" from the drop down menu) then press next and then say yes to the prompt, do you want to remove all these entries.

reboot again

then post a new hijackthis log to check what is left
