Hi carminae7,

Thanks for starting your own thread on this and submitting the HJT log; the log does show a couple of signs of the "Chod" MSN worm.

The worm uses random file and folder names, so I'd like to see if we can find out exactly where it lives before we start the removal process. Please do the following:

1:
* Click on your "Start" button and navigate to the Programs->Startup->csrss file.
* Right-click on the csrss.lnk file and then click the Properties option in the resulting drop-down menu.
* In the Properties window that opens, click on the "Shortcut" tab.
* Give us the full and exact path listed in the "Target:" box.

2:
* Double-click on your My Computer icon to open Windows Explorer. In the Folder Options->View settings under Explorer's Tools menu, select "show hidden files and folders", and uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and "Hide extentions for known file types".
* Click on the "Search" button.
* In the "All or part of the file name" box, type csrss
* In the "Look in" drop-down menu, select your "C:" drive.
* Click on "More Advanced Options.
* In the "Type of file" menu, select "All files and folders".
* Put checkmarks in the Search System, Hidden, and Subfolders options.
* Click the Search button; wait for the search to finish.
* Post the full names of the files found, including the path to those files. For example:
C:\Windows\System32\csrss.exe

0

* 3 actual files; the others are local shortcuts and web shortcuts.

* I really need to log off and get some sleep right now. Please do the following, and I'll come back to this tomorrow:

1. Delete the C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\csrss file

2. Run HijackThis again, put a check in the boxes to the left of the following entries, and then click the "Fix checked" button:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [csrss] C:\PROGRA~1\ALWILS~1\Avast4\ashDisp.exe
O4 - Startup: csrss.lnk = ?

3. Empty your Recycle Bin and reboot.

4. Run HijackThis again and post the new log.

the stratup i couldnt find in the hijackthis program.

That's OK- if you deleted the "csrss" shortcut file in your Start menu before you ran HijackThis, HJT won't list the
"O4 - Startup: csrss.lnk = ?", because you had already deleted it.

1. Your HijackThis logs aren't showing as many signs of the infection as I would expect, although that could be due to the fact that the infection tries to hide itself by making modifications to your Registry.
Let's see if a few of the antivirus/antispyware programs can turn up the hidden pieces:

* Visit at least two of the following sites for an online virus scan (if the scanners find any malicious items, note their names and include that information in your next post):

BitDefender Free Online Virus Scan
http://www.bitdefender.com/scan/licence.php
Make sure you tick AutoClean under Scan Options.

Panda ActiveScan
http://www.pandasoftware.com/active...n_principal.htm
Make sure you tick Disinfect automatically under Scan Options.

Housecall at TrendMicro
http://housecall60.trendmicro.com/e...orp.asp?id=scan
Make sure you tick Auto Clean.

eTrust Antivirus Web Scanner
http://www3.ca.com/securityadvisor/virusinfo/scan.aspx

Also run this online trojan scanner: TrojanScan
* Visit at least two of the following sites for an online virus scan:

BitDefender Free Online Virus Scan
http://www.bitdefender.com/scan/licence.php
Make sure you tick AutoClean under Scan Options.

Panda ActiveScan

I had a little trouble with the steps you listed... I don't have Avast installed, i used to but i thought i already uninstalled it :S
* Housecall at TrendMicro came up with no viruses
* BitDefender came up with one virus called Backdoor.Win32.Virkel.a in C drive's System Volume Restore. The webpage closed itself for some reason so i don't think it completed everything
*Results from eTrust :

The TrojanScan link would not work for some reason it came up with this error:
[IMG]http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f346/carminae/error_trojanscan.gif[/IMG]


When I scanned in safe mode with ad-aware and windows defender (beta 2) no malicious traces were found
here is the report from ewido anti-spyware:

1. Open your Add/Remove Programs control panel and look for an Avast! entry. If you find Avast! listed there, hilight it, click the Change/Remove button, and uninstall the program. Once done, close the A/R P control panel and:

* Run HijackThis again, put a check in the box to the left of the following entry, and then click the "Fix checked" button:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [avast!] C:\PROGRA~1\ALWILS~1\Avast4\ashDisp.exe

* Close HijackThis and then double-click on your My Computer icon. Navigate to C:\Program Files, and delete the "Alwil Software" folder if it still exists.


2. There may be other infected files hiding in your System Volume Restore folders. Please do the following to delete the contents of those folders:

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.

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.

I couldnt find avast! in the add / remove programs list... though i deleted the hijackthis part and then deleted the program folder...

ive done the system restore stuff too but when i signed into the new windows live messenger (updated one) it still came up with an error but some of its numbers were different to my original problem..


[IMG]http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f346/carminae/prob_1_7_06.gif[/IMG]

BTW i have also installed spybot search and destroy which found a few things that i have fixed now


would u need a copy of a new hijackthis log?

While it's true that you did have in infection, you are also experiencing a known bug with IE7 components (ieframe.dll, specifically) which is not related to malicious infections. You need to uninstall IE7, as it is known to cause exactly the error with Messaenger that you are reporting.

Remember that IE7 and new Live Messenger are beta releases; they are not stable, and should be avoided until the official public release versions are made available.
Translation: You use beta software at your own risk!

okay i understand.... should i uninstall IE7 then? btw i believe the new windows live messenger i downloaded was not a beta version... though the original problem of this thread was a beta version.

and i would just like to say that u have been extremely helpful and i really do appreciate all your efforts in helping me = )

The ieframe.dll file is a component of IE7, so yes- it's IE7 that you would need to install. Note that I've read threads where people had to uninstall/reinstall Messenger as well (after uninstalling IE7) to totally resolve the problem.
