    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default

    Had one of these myself recently, nasty little thing, took me ages to get rid of it completely. Depends which variant it is as the "Packed Generic 200" listing is simply that a generic type of trigger.

    First thing to do is turn off system restore and then download, install, update and run a full scan with Malwarebytes (http://www.malwarebytes.org) and see what that comes up with. In a lot of cases this will completely clean it in one sweep, however some of these are really nasty and even Malwarebytes can't completely clear them.

    Check all your harddrives for hidden files called autorun.inf and delete them (these are normally used on CD's legitimately to run the disc automatically when you put it in, however some viruses use these on hard drives to re-infect every time you open your hard drive in explorer). Ideally before you delete them all, open one in notepad and you should see the path to the file it's triggering when it runs which will also give you a pointer as to where the infection is and what it is.

    Also download RootRepeal (http://rootrepeal.googlepages.com) and anything it highlights in red in processes or files look them up on google (DO NOT just delete them, not everything in red will be un-wanted). Also check the services tab for any hidden services.

    Let me know how you get on and give any more details of what these find, giving names etc and I'll do what I can to help further.

    Another suggestion is to run Pandas free on-line scan - I find this great for removing viruses and has saved me hours of work.

    http://www.pandasecurity.com/homeusers/solutions/activescan/


    Click "Scan your computer now"

    If you install any programs to remove viruses then make sure you remove them afterwards, as you are running Norton it will cause your computer to be very slow due to them both scanning any files you open.

    If you are still getting nowhere, I would suggest you follow this..

    http://www.symantec.com/norton/suppo...080610152840EN

    It will talk you through running Norton in Windows safe mode.

    Default

    go to start / run and type cmd

    from the command prompt locate the directory and delete the file



    it will be stored at c\downloads and settings\owner\local settings\temp\ (and was named) "TDSS68dc.tmp"


    the system will work fine after removing this (run the symantec anitvirus stuff first and it deletes all except this)
