anything wrong with this??

Hi yikyang, welcome to DaniWeb :D

Is that a complete log scanned while in 'normal' mode (not Safe Mode)? It looks very short.

Right-click in an empty area of your desktop and select New, Folder; give the folder a name (like HJT or HijackThis), and then drag the hijackthis.exe icon that is on your desktop into the new folder.

Xpjava.exe is part of a worm, scan with hijackthis and have it fix this entry:

F2 - REG:system.ini: UserInit=userinit.exe,xpjava.exe

Close any open windows, other then hijackthis, and hit Fix checked.

Do a search for xpjava.exe and delete any entries found.

Msdiretx.sys is probably a malacious driver, but I don't see it in your log.

Download and run Silent Runners.vbs -- http://www.silentrunners.org/. Post the information from the log it generates in your next reply.

Empty your Recycle Bin, reboot, close any open browser windows, scan with hijackthis, and post the entire log along with the Silent Runners log.

what's this??


Moderator's edit: yikyang, you posted the actual Silent Runners program code instead of the log file. :o

I've deleted the code from this post for readability; it made the post about 4 pages long. :cheesy:

1. dlh6213 is right- your log does look a bit short. If you did run the HijackThis scan in Safe Mode, please run HJT while booted into Windows normally and give us that log.


2. In terms of the Silent Runners program, you need to right-click on the download link and then choose the "Save target as..." menu option to save the file into a folder on your computer.

Once you've done that, double-click on the Silent Runners.vbs file to run it. The script will take a little while to run, and you won't see anything happening while it does. When it finishes running, it will display a message telling you where it saved the log file. You need to then open that log file in Windows Notepad and copy-n-paste the full text of the log file into a post here.


3. Your log shows signs of at least three worm infections:

- A W32/Sdbot variant, which is responsible for msdirectx.sys and friends.

- A W32/Agobot variant, indicated by the O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [Regmgr] scvhost.exe log entry.

- A W32/Rbot variant, indicated by the runm.pif and rune.pif log entries.


Since AVG isn't able to remove those infections, I suggest you run these free online anti-virus/anti-spyware scans and see if they can clean things up a bit:

http://www.kaspersky.com/scanforvirus.html
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
http://us.mcafee.com/root/mfs/default.asp?cid=9914
http://www.pandasoftware.com/active...n_principal.htm
http://www.ravantivirus.com/scan/
http://www.bitdefender.com/scan/licence.php


For the msdirectx.sys infection, you can also try Microsoft's removal instructions here:

http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb;en-us;897079


4. Once you do the above, give us a new HijackThis log, the Silent Runners log, and any report logs that the online scanners might have generated.

Thanks DMR, a lot of good info there :)

But unless yikyang mistyped, he doesn't have msdirectx.sys, he has msdiretx.sys; do you know if it's related or if the MS fix will work for it?

The Internet connection problems could definitely be the work of the infections.

You will need to disconnect from the Internet for the following fixes (I'd suggest physically unplugging the cable), so you should either print out these instructions or save them into a text file using Notepad.

1. Run HijackThis again, put a check in the boxes next to the following entries, and click the "Fix checked" button:

F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe mcafee32.exe
F2 - REG:system.ini: UserInit=userinit.exe,xpjava.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Regmgr] scvhost.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Microsoftf DDEs ContDLL] rune.pif
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [PPPOEOE] winlite.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Microsoftf DDEs ContrDL] runm.pif
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [McAfee Windows Protection] mcafee32.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Compaq32 Service Drivers] msconfig32.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [msci] D:\DOCUME~1\YIKYAN~1.ITW\LOCALS~1\Temp\200562817262_mcinfo.exe /insfin

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Windows Media Player] mcafe32.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Regmgr] scvhost.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Norton Personal Firewall] lah.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [NAV Auto Protect] navprotect.exe


2. Reboot into safe mode (you get to the safe mode boot option by hitting the F8 key as your computer is starting up)

- Open Windows Explorer, and in the Folder Options->View settings under the Tools menu, select "show hidden files and folders", and uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and "Hide extentions for known file types".

- Locate and delete the following files:
mcafee32.exe
xpjava.exe
scvhost.exe <-There is a valid Windows file named svchost.exe; only delete the file named scvhost.exe!
rune.pif
runm.pif
winlite.exe
mcafee32.exe
msconfig32.exe
lah.exe
navprotect.exe

- For every user account listed under C:\Documents and Settings\, delete the entire contents of the following folders (but not the folders themselves):

(Important: One of the normal steps in eliminating malicious programs is to entirely delete the contents of all Temp folders. Given that, if any data that you care about is living in those Temp folders, you need to move it to a safe location now, or it will be erased along with everything else!)

1. Cookies
2. Local Settings\Temp
3. Local Settings\History
4. Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files

- Delete the entire content of your C:\Windows\Temp folder.

- Delete the entire content of your C:\Windows\Prefetch folder.

Note- If you get any messages concerning the deletion of system files such as desktop.ini or index.dat, just choose to delete those files; they'll be automatically regenerated by Windows if needed. Windows will allow you to delete the versions of those files which exist in sub-folders within the main Temp/Temorary folders, but might not let you delete the versions of those files that exist in the main Temp folders themselves; this is normal and OK.

- Empty your Recycle Bin.


3. Reboot normally, run HJT again, and post the new log.

thanks DMR!!it worked!msdirectx.sys didn't return anymore!!during the process,i found another suspicious file,userinit32.exe.is it one of the infections?what can i do to prevent myself from getting infected again?any advice??
And there's a prob with my windows media player,and im not sure is it the work of those infections.my media player cant play audio files with its first start-up.it'll shut down and display the error message.what can i do about it?

Sorry for the late response.

A) userinit32.exe is a component of a malicious infection. You can find more info and removal instructions in some of the links here:

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=userinit32.exe&btnG=Google+Search


B) Media Player can get corrupted by viruses/spyware, but it can also break for other reasons. Uninstall and reinstall it and see if that clears thing up.


C) Some general things you can/should do to minimize your chances of future virus/malware infections:


1. Enable Windows Automatic Update function to keep your system as up-to-date as possible with the most current Microsoft security and bug fixes.

2. Stop using Internet Explorer as your web browser. Because IE is so closely tied into the Windows operating system itself and contains so many security flaws, switching to another browser such as Netscape, Firefox, or Opera will reduce the avenues through which spyware/adware/hijackers/etc. can infect your computer.

3. Install preventative utilities such as SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard (links are in my sig below), especially if you absolutely have to continue using Internet Exploder. These utilities protect areas of your system known to be vulnerable to malicious attacks. IE-SPYAD is another helpful tool; it can be downloaded here:
https://netfiles.uiuc.edu/ehowes/www/resource.htm

4. Tighten up some of Internet Explorer's existing, default settings to make it more secure. Some info on that can be found here: http://tomcoyote.org/ieoe.php

5. Obviously-install a good anti-virus program and enable its "auto-protect" and email-scanning features.

6. Install a stand-alone firewall program such as Zone Alarm or Kerio Personal Firewall, or purchase the "Internet Security" packages offered by Symantec and McAfee.

7. None of your utilities are of much good if you don't check for updates frequently; updates for anti-spyware/anti-virus programs can be released as often as every two or three days.

thanks alot!!alot of info there!i re-install my media player before..but its still the same..and i dont use IE.i uses firefox..thanks alot!!

0

You're welcome. :)

For the Media Player problem:

- What is the exact error that it gives you?

- Open the Event Viewer utility in your Administrative Tools control panel and look through the System and Application logs to see if there are any error messages there which might contain more information on the problem.

(I know how much he needs more to do)

Uh, yeah...thanks. I'll just ignore those 14 auto-notifications that piled up in my mailbox after only 6 hours offline and wait for you to throw me more fresh fish... :mrgreen:


yikyang,

Unfortunately, I was hoping that the Media Player error message might tell us exactly which module/file was causing the problem, but it only gives "faulting module unknown", which doesn't give us anything specific to go on. The cause of hte problem could be in a number of places, and since Media Player still crashes after you reinstalled it, I really don't have any suggestions right now. :(

For the possible reinfections, post a new log as dlh6213 suggested.

No, the log is very clean.

What specific signs or messages did you get that make you think that you've been reinfected?

0

my explorer will close suddenly and will not give any error messages..my com will restart itself sometimes without warnings..
everytime i run lavasoft ad-aware,my AVG will show the virus detected messages in the D:/System Volume Information folder.
the names of the viruses are A0039652.sys,A0059575.sys,and alot more of different numbers.i must disable AVG at that moment cause it wont stop giving me the warning messages.There is also an .exe file called A0059569.exe in the same folder.Is this an infection?

0

thanks so much!!but i still cant get rid of A0059569.exe..it doesn't matter right?what does this virus do?it will appear during the ad-adware scan.Only the exe file.thanks alot!!
