Further to what DMR is saying, there is a version of Vundo that causes hijackthis to not display the 02 and the 020 entry in the log. If you rename hijackthis.exe to anything you want and then do a scan, you may then be able to see extra entries.

Please download VundoFix.exe to your desktop.

  • Double-click VundoFix.exe to run it.
  • Click the Scan for Vundo button.
  • Once it's done scanning, click the Remove Vundo button.
  • You will receive a prompt asking if you want to remove the files, click YES
  • Once you click yes, your desktop will go blank as it starts removing Vundo.
  • When completed, it will prompt that it will shutdown your computer, click OK.
  • Turn your computer back on.
  • Please post the contents of C:\vundofix.txt and a new HijackThis log.

Ahhh.... I was wondering why nothing was showing in the log.
Thanks for that info, Chris!
:)

No worries :). Even though I know about it, I still miss it now and then. Complaints of Amaena/Winantivirus/sysprotect are obvious signs of Vundo.

There's a lot here...
1) You want me to rename hijackthis.exe to crunchie.exe, then run crunchie.exe and post a log?
2) You also want me to download and run the VundoFix. In Safe or Regular Mode?
3) And then another crunchie.exe and post that log, too?

Trying to be sure I understand. As always, I deeply appreciate your help, all of you....

Sorry CasMax, but something in your last post corrupted this thread; I had to delete the post.

The good (?) news, though: I was able to read one thing that you posted which stood out. You said: sstts.dll is a filename associated with the Vundo family of infections, and its presence on your computer would be a likely explanation for the abnormal CPU usage.

* Open Process Explorer again. Click on the "View" menu item, make sure that the "Show Lower pane" option is checked, and click "Dlls" under the "Lower Pane View" submenu option.

* Locate sstts.dll in the lower pane and tell us the full path to the file's location. I'd expect the location to be C:\Windows\System32, but it could live elsewhere.

You should have seen that list. It was hundred lines long, possibly over a thousand. It had many lines that looked a lot like "Services" entries, but then it had line after line of nonsense combinations of letters, symbols and numbers, with no paths or extensions at all, like "nnny5x" and smiley faces, I mean, it was obviously pure trash. Maybe the smileys or the simple size of it is what corrputed the thread. Do you want to see it again, or have my clip out a few dozen lines with no smileys and re-post?

I think you did it crunchie!! No CPU usage going on, explorer.exe is just a normal app now!

I think you did it crunchie!!

And so did you, by the looks of it; good work. :)

There is just one "loose end" in your log that we need to clean up. Run another HijackThis scan, put a check in the box to the left of the following entry, and then click the "Fix checked" button:
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {9F0651AC-3A49-4873-8392-B84CF465910E} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\sstts.dll (file missing)

Once the fix has completed, reboot your computer, run HiajckThis again, and post the new log.

Do I need to do something to System Restore now?

Thanks again!

Do I need to do something to System Restore now?

Yes. Since your log is now clean, it might be a good idea to:

Disable System Restore

1. Log in as a user with Administrator privileges.

2. Right-click on the My Computer icon on your desktop and choose the "Properties" option.

3. In the System Properties window, click on the System Restore tab and then put a check in the box next to the "Turn off System Restore" option and hit the "OK" button.

4. Click "Yes" in the resulting confirmation box. You may experience a slight delay as your change is applied; the Properties window will close automatically when the operation is complete.

and then...

Reactivate System Restore

In the System Restore tab, uncheck the box next to the "Turn off System Restore" option, and hit the "OK" button. There will be a slight delay as Restore reactivates; the Properties window will automatically close when the operation is complete.

The above steps will clear out your Restore folders, the contents of which could include infected files.

DMR was the one who picked up the file that pointed to Vundo :). You actually did all the work though :D.
If you have system restore off, you should re-enable it now. Wait for the all clear from those who have been with you the whole thread though.

EDIT. Didn't see you in the thread Dave. Me too slow as usual :D.

Me too slow as usual :D.

We were both being our usual slow selves at the same time... :mrgreen:

Well this was one of those thinking out of the box problems, now wasn't it.

Yeah, it sure was. I don't know about you, but I like one of these every once in a while- keeps things lively... :mrgreen:

Happy Machine is Good Machine :mrgreen:

I had a very similar problem, this thread was very useful to solving it, and I wanted to add what I did to solve it as an aid to others who suffer from what I did..

A member of my household has a laptop running WinXP SP2. This is a young teenager so you can imagine that all sorts of sites are visited with nasty activeX objects installed. The computer has Nortin AntiVuris/Internet Protection 2006 with parental controls turned on ( the Norton tools, especially parental control, are unbelievable resource hogs, if anyone has a pointer to lighter-weight protection tools I'd love to hear about them.). Also, the user installed Zango toolbar recently and this I suspect may have been the conduit of the VirtuMonde trojan. I began with uninstalling Zango.

My young user complained that the system was unresponsive and that it needed constant restarting. I took a look and determined that explorer.exe was taking 99% of the CPU time. In order to figure this out I had to reboot and hit CTRL-ALT-DELETE at the very beginning of the login process or else the system became unresponsive and even CTRL-ALT-DELETE didn't raise the task manager. Killing explorer.exe allowed the system to run via launching processes through task manager, which of course is very inconvenient, but allowed me to investigate the problem further. I also noted that at random, various full-screen pop-up ads (in internet explorer) would appear

Those symptoms brought me to this thread via google search. I downloaded and ran hijackthis, and found several extremely suspicious looking entries which only showed up when I ran hijackthis.exe renamed (thanks to the advice in this thread, or it might have taken me MUCH Longer to diagnose). I'm at work now and don't have the hijackthis log, but they were something like this:

+ startup: c:\docume~1\user~1\local~1\temp\__A0432ff89.exe
+ (BHO?) c:\windows\system32\ccClKnn.dll
+ windows login: c:\windows\system32\ccClKnn.dll
(there were a few more "funny name" dlls)

All this sounded like a VirtuMonde infection.

I downloaded and ran the two "fix Virtumonde" (vmundo?) exes but neither worked, they both said "system is clean".

I downloaded SpyHunter3 which detected Virtumonde tojan but as a pay tool it didn't fix it without registering, so I kept looking.

I then found out that Spyware Doctor has a FREE version of the detection *and* removal incorporated into the Google Pack ("on-guard" live protection still requires pay registration).

I downloaded the Spyware Doctor, ran an "Intelli-Scan", which found the VirtuMonde trojan and removed it. It took a few more runs of hijackthis to clear out all of the hanging references to the various "funny name" dlls. Voila, the system seems to be back to running now!

As a summary, I heartily recommend the version of spyware doctor which is free in the google pack (http://pack.google.com/ ), and thanks again for the hint about renaming hijackthis!
