Hii me again unfortunately...

Well supposedly there is a new virus going around in an email titled "I'm in Love' or something, well unfortunately I do remember opening an email relating to that title.. and strangely enough these supposed "virus'" are now in my computer.... I ran Panda Scan and it detected 8 viruses, naming the ones I will name, and supposedly fixing them..but "MiCr0s0ft.exe", "Microsoftx.exe" and "ns.exe" are all running in my System, and taking up Memory and my CPU , varying from 3000 k, to 14000k....
So, naturally my computer is running very slowly, and the net is only partly working (Microsoft INternet Explorer is getting the Error Message most of the time..)
SO i was hoping that someone might know what the programs i mentioned are doing on my computer and if they're harmful..and how i can fix them! ohh and here's my Hijack Log!

Now then. What did I tell you??

Open Task Manager & end process on the following:
ns.exe
MiCr0s0ft.exe
Microsoftx.exe

Then go to C:\WINDOWS\System32 and delete them manually.

Close all (browser) windows & rescan with hijackthis. When the scan is finished place a check in the box to the left of the following entries & click 'fix checked':

R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MiCr0s0ft Update Machine] MiCr0s0ft.exe

Do not open strange mail! Guess you know that now :).

Hi again........
Unfortunately for some strange reason, altho I am system administrator, I can not close the three programs because Access is Denied.
Then, when I looked, there are no virus files in system32 at all...
Also, Hijack this loads and scans, but before I have a chance to click on anything, unless I save the long very quickly, the program shuts itself down.

I somehow have to find a way to be able to shut down the programs in Task Manager.

do you have any ideas please?
Thanks...

And i know, i tried to stay outta trouble! But its just so hard! lol...*sighs*

Download the Pocket KillBox
Unzip the file to your desktop.
Run KillBox.exe.
Select the Delete on Reboot option.
In the Full Path of File to Delete field paste this path and click the red circle with the white X in it(when it asks you to reboot, click NO.):

C:\WINDOWS\System32\ns.exe

Run KillBox again.
Select the Delete on Reboot option.
In the Full Path of File to Delete field paste this path and click the red circle with the white X in it(when it asks you to reboot, click NO.):

C:\WINDOWS\System32\MiCr0s0ft.exe

Run KillBox again.
Select the Delete on Reboot option.
In the Full Path of File to Delete field paste this path and click the red circle with the white X in it(when it asks you to reboot, click YES.):

C:\WINDOWS\System32\Microsoftx.exe

Your computer should then reboot. Killbox will check to see if the files were deleted.

See if you can get a log from HJT and post it back.

Hiii again... ok well i did what u said; downloaded KillBox and everything, yet still after rebooting, the programs are still in my HJT log...but none of the three programs are currently running in my Task Manager, so hopefully thats a sign! Here's my Log...

Do you have Winamp?

Close all (browser) windows & rescan with hijackthis. When the scan is finished place a check in the box to the left of the following entries & click 'fix checked':

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MiCr0s0ft Update Machine] MiCr0s0ft.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [NS] ns.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Microsoft Update] Microsoftx.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Microsoft Windows Key] rpcxsys.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [MiCr0s0ft Update Machine] MiCr0s0ft.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [NS] ns.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [Microsoft Update] Microsoftx.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [Microsoft Windows Key] rpcxsys.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [MiCr0s0ft Update Machine] MiCr0s0ft.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Microsoft Update] Microsoftx.exe

Run a search of your computer and see if you can find any of the above. If you do, you know what to do

Hopefully that will be it :).

Reboot after doing the above, rescan with hijackthis making certain that all instances of Internet Explorer are closed, then post that log here please.

Hiii again Crunchie! :mrgreen: And yes, I do have Winamp, its the media player I usually use the most...is there something wrong with it?
I did what you said, and had to manually delete MiCr0s0ft.exe but that was ok...the other two viruses, i actually "fixed" in the HiJack This log last night when i got frustrated, and they didnt reappear, but I searched for them anyways and I deleted the files of them too..so it all looks good so far, actually I'll leave that conclusion to you Doc... ;)

oooh me again...ok welllll Suddenly MiCr0s0ft is back! :sad: darn it.. :eek:
so again I've searched my computer and its in the C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch... file name "MICR0S0FT.EXE-2BF729A4.pf"... :twisted:
does that help anything? lol...should i rescan again? :rolleyes:

0

Can you delete it from the prefetch folder, then download sysclean (free) from Trend Micro, allow it to clean up any bad files it finds. It may take a while, so have a cuppa whilst it's running :).

http://www.trendmicro.com/download/dcs.asp

Be sure to download and install the latest pattern file. There's a link to it at the lower left-hand colum of the page. It will not run without the pattern file.

From Trend:

Note that for the Trend Micro Sysclean Package to be effective, you must download and place the latest pattern file in the same folder as the Trend Micro Sysclean Package.

Hiii again..okies well I downloaded and ran the scanner you told me to do, but it didnt totally delete the file...except it no longer ran as a System Process, so it was closeable in Task Manager...I then ran KillBox again, and deleted it from the Hijack This log, then rescanned with HJT and posted it here...

Oooh nooo...
Man this is really buggin me! ITs back again...i manually deleted it again but its back..i reckon its related to tha rpcxsys.exe file...as that is the only "virus" remaining on my puta after the microsoftx.exe and ns.exe have gone now... I wonder, is there any other virus scanners out there u know about? I'm so sorry to hafta keep buggin you Crunchie! :cry:

0

Not buggin' me :). Turn off system restore. You will lose all previous restore points! Go to Start>Run and type msconfig Press enter. When msconfig opens, click the Launch System Restore Button.
On the next page, click the System Restore Settings Link on the left. Check the box labeled Turn off System restore.
Clear out your prefetch folder.

Reboot.

Post another hijackthis log.

Okkk well i did that and deleted them..
I think i need to rescan again just to make sure theyre all gone, but it all looks good!!! So thanks again Crunchie, you rule! :mrgreen:

You can do that I reckon :). You should be able to recognise it now :).
I responded to another of your threads regarding Messenger Plus that you were going to reinstall. Do not install the 3rd party sponsor with it or you will get infected by LOP.

*Screams at computer*
AHHHHHH.. :o
Ok I was hoping my post would be the last one for a while (at least!) but noooo... I've noticed since yesty that there are "Internet Explorer"'s being run in my Task Manager as System Processes! Yesterday there was up to 10 running at once...And im saying this now because I just got bombarded by them all starting...ahh this is so annoying lol... :mad:
But also, that program "rpcxsys.exe" is still in my HJT log...Maybe thats whats causing this all :mad: I'm about ready to throw my computer through my window...lol...
Sorry for having to keep asking for ya help! :o

Ok wellll...just thought it might help if i told you that now every now and then "CMD" is opening and something happens in the (i think its a command prompt?) and then a web page loads with random things which I close but they still run as a System Process...so im guessing its that virus still..grrr.. :eek:

The rpcxsys.exe file is a virus. Our company was attacked by it this morning and it brought our network to a standstill. We worked with Symantec and their engineers determined it was a previously unknown variant of the spybot.worm virus. If you happen to use Symantec/Norton antivirus products you can download the rapid-release virus signature update from here to detect and quarantine the file until the file's signature is added to their regular definition files:
ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_canada/antivirus_definitions/norton_antivirus/rapidrelease/sequence/

We struggled in frustration all-night trying to determine the culprit and resolve what this file does. This site was the only site that made mention of it on the entire www. Thanks for letting us know we weren't crazy when we thought 'how can we be the only people to have a brand-new virus?' There's nothing like being at ground-zero for a new undetected virus. Nobody can really help you prevent reinfection. We could remove the process manually but we couldn't prevent it from coming back once an infected pc attacked it again. So far we have not determined how it got into our network but it looks like it requires user interaction (opening an infected attachment) and passes itself around a network through weak administrator passwords. It determines what network segment it is on and performs a complete network port scan on all ip addresses looking for vulnerable ports/services that are running and reports the compromised machines back to various sites. Our version was non-destructive at this point. Only settinging up a backdoor and it's own account for re-entry. The program would peg the cpu on the affected pc to near 100% and flood the network with traffic that wreaked havoc on all of our routers. The only file we saw in our case was the rpcxsys.exe, we did not have the "MiCr0s0ft.exe", "Microsoftx.exe" & "ns.exe" files appear.

Glad it's over though.

Hope this helps people in this group.

Turn off system restore. If you know the full path to rpcxupdtsys.exe (it may be C:\Windows\system32) paste the full path into hijackthis, like so:

Start hijackthis and go to Config\Misc Tools\Delete a File on Reboot and paste it into the line that pops up.

Scan with hijackthis and tick the boxes next to all the following entries, then close all browser and explorer windows, and hit the "Fix checked" button.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Microsoft Windows System Update] rpcxupdtsys.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [Microsoft Windows System Update] rpcxupdtsys.exe

Reboot and keep the fingers crossed :).

Hi ! Can anyone help me? I'm with the same problem i think...

Yesterday I noticed that the leds of my cable modem are ON forever... The 2 leds (receive and send) were ON and i wasn't using teh internet! So I checked the Running process and found rpcxsys.exe ! I've tried to delete it with hjt but it failed, so I deleted it mannually. The problem is that svhost.exe is still running and i think that's it is consuming my internet connection! Yesterday I've noticed up to 21 process svhost running at the same time!!! :evil: 'me trying to delete it, but everytime I do this, the file C:\WINNT\System32\svhost.exe appears again after the reboot!!!

I've also found keys at the windows register named svhost... May I delete it all ?
these are the respective locations:
- HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Miscrosoft\Windows\Current Version\Run
- HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Miscrosoft\Windows\Current Version\Run
- HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Miscrosoft\Windows\Current Version\RunServices
- HKEY_USERS\DEFAULT\Sotware\Miscrosoft\Windows\Current Version\Run

Hey Crunchie help me please! What I have to do to stop svhost.exe and make my connection FREE? :cry:
