Hi Gunther Forster welcome to DaniWeb

Download Combofix from any of the links below, and save it to your desktop.

Link 1
Link 2
Link 3


**Note: It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**

--------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Close any open browsers.

2. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.

  • When finished, it will produce a report for you.
  • Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt" along with a new HijackThis log for further review.

Note:
Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall

Thanks. Here is the c:ComboFix.txt: (the Hijackthis text follows the combofix below)

Hi Gunther

Can you tell me why you have this folder C:\System32
DON'T do anything with it just yet.

----------------------------------------------

Download SafeBootKeyRepair.exe by sUBs and save it to your desktop.

Double-click SafeBootKeyRepair.exe to run it. Follow any prompts that may appear then post the log it produces.

----------------------------------------------

If E:\ is a flash disk or external drive please make sure it is attached before running combofix.

1. Close any open browsers.

2. Open notepad and copy/paste the text in the quotebox below into it:



File::
C:\Program Files\bhbsdrx.inf
C:\WINDOWS\Tasks\AE46DC13907D59F7.job
E:\htocusa.exe
Folder::
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Name beep copy real
C:\Documents and Settings\admin\Application Data\Itch meta
Registry::

DirLook::
C:\System32


Save this asCFScript.txt, in the same location as ComboFix.exe


Refering to the picture above, drag CFScript into ComboFix.exe

When finished, it shall produce a log for you at"C:\ComboFix.txt"

Note:
Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall

Thanks again.

Firstly, I have no idea what this system32 thing is?

As for your instructions, I followed them as instructed:

I ran the safeboot repair without incident but lost the log files when the next stage - combofix ran -sorry!

The combofix script ran well and produced the log below:

OK Gunther

I want you to continue running the fixes in normal mode but check to see if you can boot to safe mode (tapping F8 at boot until menu appears) and logon?


1. Close any open browsers.

2. Open notepad and copy/paste the text in the quotebox below into it:

File::
C:\WINDOWS\system32\sexit.dat
Folder::
C:\Program Files\Itch meta

Save this as CFScript.txt, in the same location as ComboFix.exe

Drag it onto ComboFix.exe same as before and post the resulting c:\combofix.txt

Note:
Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall
-------------------------------
Establish an internet connection & perform an online scan with Internet Explorer at Kaspersky Online Scanner

Answer Yes, when prompted to install an ActiveX component.

  • The program will then begin downloading the latest definition files.
  • Once the files have been downloaded click on NEXT
  • Locate the Scan Settings button & configure to:
    • Scan using the following Anti-Virus database:
      • Extended
    • Scan Options:
      • Scan Archives
      • Scan Mail Bases
  • Click OK & have it scan My Computer
  • Once the scan is complete, it will display if your system has been infected. It does not provide an option to clean/disinfect. We only require a report from it.
  • Click the Save as Text button to save the file to your desktop so that you may post it in your next reply

* Turn off the real time scanner of any existing antivirus program while performing the online scan

Note for Internet Explorer 7 users: If at any time you have trouble with the accept button of the licence, click on the Zoom tool located at the right bottom of the IE window and set the zoom to 75 %. Once the license has been accepted, reset to 100%.

-------------------------------
Post a new HijackThis log along with the kaspersky report and combofix.txt. How is the computer behaving now?

Hi:

Thanks again. The computer is running so much better and no IE opens to this point!! And now I can get safemode to work. Thanks.

I did the new cf script and the log is below. But when I went to the Kaspersky link I couldn't access the online scanner with either IE or Firefox. I searched for the online scanner within the site but only the single file scanner seems to be working. - http://www.kaspersky.com/scanforvirus

The CF log:

Sorry but I can't find the online scanner link on that page.

Thanks again for the help,

Gunther

P.S. My system is working great.

Sorry Gunther

I believe Kaspersky have been having some trouble with some links, I'm not sure if that's fixed yet or not.

I would like to see an online scan to make sure you have no remnants onboard. We do still need to do some final cleanup afterwards. Please try this scan

ESET Online Scanner

  • Please go to the following link ESET Online Scanner Link
  • Tick the box YES, I accept the Terms Of Use
  • Click the Start button
  • Now click the Install button
  • Click Start

    The scanner engine will initialise and update

  • Do Not tick the box Remove found threats
  • Click the Scan button

    The scan will now run, please be patient

  • When the scan finishes click the Details tab
  • Copy and paste the contents of the %ProgramFiles%\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt back here.

All looks good. No virus's or threats found. The details didn't come up.

Thanks for everything.

Great stuff!!

Kindly follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:


  1. UNINSTALL COMBOFIX
    This process will also perform some final cleanup steps
    Click Start > Run and type ComboFix /u


  2. ANTIVIRUS SOFTWARE
    It is very important that you have anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future.

    See this link for a listing of some online & their stand-alone antivirus programs:

    Virus, Spyware, and Malware Protection and Removal Resources

    It is imperative that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.


  3. FIREWALL
    Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly. A tutorial on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones can be found here.


  4. Microsoft Windows Update
    Visit windowsupdate.com regularly. This will ensure your computer always has the latest security updates. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.


  5. SPYBOT - SEARCH & DESTROY
    Download and install Spybot - Search & Destroy with its TeaTimer option. This will provide realtime spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection. You should also scan your computer with the program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software. A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here


  6. AD-AWARE
    Download and install Ad-Aware. You should use this program to scan your computer on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software in conjunction with Spybot. A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here

Update all these programs regularly. Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.

Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically. Here are some additional utilities that will further enhance your safety.

  • Trillian or Miranda-IM - These are Malware free Instant Messenger programs which allow you to connect to multiple IM services in one program! (AOL, Yahoo, ICQ, IRC, MSN)
  • Firefox - Use this alternate browser. Whilst Internet Explorer is not a bad browser, almost every exploit crafted is targeted to take advantage of an IE weakness.
  • Sun's Java - It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine.
  • Google Toolbar - Get the free google toolbar to help stop pop up windows.
  • CleanUP! - Cleans temporary files from IE and Windows, empties the recycle bin and more. Great tool to help speed up your computer and knock out those nasties that like to reside in the temp folders.
  • ERUNT - A useful freeware utility for users of Windows 2000/XP. It's made up of two parts - ERUNT & NTREGOPT.

    ERUNT will create daily complete backups of your computer's Registry. Whilst System Restore does the same thing, a corrupt registry file may prevent Windows from booting & this effectively renders disables System Restore. With ERUNT, you're able to restore the damaged Registry.

    NTREGOPT works by recreating each registry hive "from scratch", thus removing any slack space that may be left from previously modified or deleted keys. In other words, it compacts the Registry to a small size which allows Windows to load & perform faster.

  • Winpatrol - Download and install the free version of Winpatrol.
    A tutorial for this product is located here:
    Using Winpatrol to protect your computer from malicious software

To find out more information about how you got infected in the first place and some great guidelines to follow to prevent future infections you can read this article by Tony Klein

After doing all these, your system will be optimised against future threats.

It's okay to delete the Hijack This folder in a couple weeks if everything is working okay.
Have a safe & happy computing day.

Thanks so much for everything. You have been able to help me when no one or any virus program could. You have been awesome!
