My Windows XP machine was recently infected with a virus. I received the virus from advertising on a website. My virus scanner (avast!) told me there were infected files in my temporary internet folder and it spread from there. The alerts were killing me, so I disabled it and manually removed the virus.

The virus was called "Antivirus System Pro" - a virus posing as antivirus software. After finding instructions on how to do so, I removed each of the files associated with the virus.
http://remove-malware.net/how-to-remove-antivirus-system-pro-rogue-anti-spyware/

But now, I can't run Mozilla Firefox - the browser I was running when my machine became contaminated. When I double click firefox.exe, my Task Manager displays Firefox for a split second, but it quickly disappears from the list. No window ever comes out.

In desperation, I tried to run Internet Explorer. A window comes up, but the program quickly freezes and never successfully loads a page.

I'm using Google Chrome right now.

Anything helps. Thanks.

This may prove to be an obvious and useless answer if you've already done it and not mentioned that you did (or if you did and I just didn't notice), but did you try removing firefox from your system and then re-installing? As for IE, you can remove and then re-install it using your windows XP CD.

Yes, I've re-installed Firefox. I did not, however, select the option to remove my personal data and customizations. I'd rather not unless I have to.
I even tried installing it in a separate folder and running that Firefox, but the same problem occurs.

Bit of infection still in there, so for a start:
==Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
from: http://www.majorgeeks.com/Malwarebytes_Anti-Malware_d5756.html
or: http://www.besttechie.net/tools/mbam-setup.exe
=Dclick that file, mbam-setup.exe, to install the application,
-ensure that it is set to update and start, else start it via the icon, and UPDATE it.
Select "Perform QUICK Scan", then click Scan; the application will guide you through the remaining steps.
ENSURE that EVERYTHING found has a CHECKMARK against it, then click Remove Selected.
If malware has been found [and removed] MBAM will automatically produce a log for you... do not click the Save Logfile button.
When it completes examine the log: if some files are listed as Delete on Reboot then restart your machine before continuing.
Post the Notepad log [it is also saved under Logs tab in MBAM].

MBAM can still be installed and updated without a connection. Using a flashdrive on another system, download & save the installer file from http://www.majorgeeks.com/Malwarebyt...are_d5756.html, then dl the latest updates file: http://www.gt500.org/malwarebytes/database.jsp , both to a thumbdrive.
Run the installer, when it completes uncheck the Launch and Update boxes to finish. Next, dclick the mbam-rules.exe file, it will install into MBAM.
Start MBAM via the icon and ...
Finally, another HJT log plus your comments.

I ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. I'd done so before, but as I was running it a second time, Avast gave me a couple of alerts and I deleted those files. So the Anti-Malware log shows no malicious files detected.

My browsers remain unchanged.

Here is my latest HJT log:

Thanks for the help, everyone.
If there's anything else I should do, let me know. As far as I can tell, my computer is virus free.

Well, that is interesting behaviour, not at all what I expected.
This is the file that concerned me.. it is a virus capable of spawning 100s of other files: C:\WINDOWS\system32\fokubino.dll
It was initiated by these keys:
O4 - HKUS\S-1-5-19\..\Run: [luwahejeso] Rundll32.exe "C:\WINDOWS\system32\fokubino.dll",s (User 'LOCAL SERVICE')
O4 - HKUS\S-1-5-20\..\Run: [luwahejeso] Rundll32.exe "C:\WINDOWS\system32\fokubino.dll",s (User 'NETWORK SERVICE')
MBAM would not touch them; I expected to see them listed in the Combofix report, but no. And they are gone from your last HJT log.
All appears good with the logs now; i note that FF is working for you, how about IE?
If that file, fokubino.dll is inside the Combofix quarantine at C:Qoobox would you please go to this web page http://virusscan.jotti.org/, click browse and submit it for examination [instructions are on the page].
Post any positive result.
Then, go Start, Run..
combofix /u
Diablo II. Dated, but I still love that game. It's the scenery [or some of it], the concepts. I don't think any other game has come close. The writers really researched mid-eastern history and mythology.

Internet Explorer is now working - as well as it was designed to, anyways.
I checked the Combofix quarantine, and the only thing I found was a file called "_000111_.tmp.dll.vir" in the Quarantine\C\WINDOWS\system32 directory.

Diablo II... a phenomenal game. I played it for far too long. I hope Diablo III is just as good.

I'm hoping so.
Cheers.
