Hi there,

After visiting a couple of software crack sites yesterday I noticed a program started to appear on my taskbar named "~close~" (screen shot attached). I've already run AdAware, Spybot and read through the HijackThis tutorial.

Below is my HijackThis log, thanks in advance for your help!

First of all we have to remove Newdotnet, either from add/remove programs, or by going here. & scrolling down to the uninstall tool.

Unzip HJT into it's own permanent folder before doing anything in order for it to create backups. (Not a temporary folder or directly on the desktop & not directly on your hard drive). 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: [bxwbjg] C:\WINNT\system32\mrlugh.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [alchem] C:\WINNT\alchem.exe

Reboot into safe mode following the instructions here & navigate to & delete the following if found:

C:\WINNT\system32\mrlugh.exe< file
C:\WINNT\alchem.exe< file

Reboot normally.
The 017 entries take me to a yellow pages site. Seems a bit suss to me. If this is from your ISP or company network then leave them, otherwise fix them with HJT.

Thanks for the instructions.

I rescanned and fixed the 04 entries, however when I was in the process of rebooting I could not get in using my usual login password in safe mode, so I was not able to delete the two files (mrlugh.exe and alchem.exe). This is actually my computer at work so I'm wary about locking myself out and having IT come over :rolleyes:. The two files are still there and I'm guessing I can not delete them in normal mode (I tried and received a sharing violation error message).

Should I attempt to login in safe mode again or is there another way to delete the 2 files? I have no idea why it wasn't accepting my password...

Download moveonboot from here.

MoveOnBoot allows you to copy, move or delete files on the next system boot. This comes in very handy, if you need to replace or delete files which are locked by other applications, loaded into memory or cannot be changed until next system boot. You could manually enter a line to the wininit files, but using MoveOnBoot is much simpler, since the program can be integrated into shell - it creates the "Copy/Move/Delete on boot" context menu item.

Thanks, I ran Moveonboot and deleted the two files, also ran Ad-aware and Spybot but it seems the problem is still there...below is my latest Hijack this log:
