Hi everyone. I think it's about time I admit defeat. As near as I can tell I have been infected with some kind of Vcodec trojan (and maybe other junk as well). I keep getting a fake system alert pop-up that reads "[email protected]" (I know it is fake because it spells balloon as baloon...) as well as a Critical Alert window claiming I have something called Spyware.CyberLog-X. Pretty much everything that pops up tells me I have some sort of Trojan or piece of spyware and all have little "Click here to download antispyware" buttons. Also, there are occasional [bleep] popups and my browser has been hijacked (leads to eprotectpage.com). I have run ATF cleaner, set a system restore point, run Ad-aware SE, Spybot S&D, and AVG Anti-Spyware (Ewido). Each spyware program got rid of a ton of stuff, but none of it was relevant to the problem I am encountering. Usually Ad-aware easily finds browser hijacks, but no luck this time. I have found Vcodec solutions on this forum as well as others, and I tried to follow them, but there were significant differences between what I have and what those others had. I can see this Quality Codec thing in my hijackthis log, and after looking around on the internet I found it could be linked to this Vcodec thing. I didn't delete it lest I wind up pooching things. Norton is not coming up with anything, and as I've said the spyware programs (Ewido in safe-mode) deleted a bunch of stuff, but none of it was related to this junk. I also have fake Online Security Guide and Security Troubleshooting icons on the desktop and in the start menu. Windows Update has installed SP1a (it's telling me to update to SP2, but from what I've read here that's not a good idea until I get rid of everything). There are also Quality Codec, VirusBursters and Winantispyware2006 folders on my computer. We're so careful about everything, I can't believe how badly we've been infected! Below are my HijackThis, Panda ActiveScan and Ewido logs:

We can definitely help you, but first you need to help us. The first step in this process is to apply Service Pack 1a for Windows XP - your log shows no evidence of this update. Without this update, you're wide open to re-infection, and we're both just wasting our time.

Apply the update, reboot, and post a fresh Hijack This log.

Hi Daemon, thanks for the quick response. I'm really sorry about that, I could have sworn I had SP1a on here a long time ago (maybe that's why I got infected!) Windows Update is urging for SP2, so I just assumed... Anyhow, it's all done now. Here's the new log:

OK, good. Click here to download smitRem.exe and save the file to your desktop. Double click on the file to extract it to it's own folder on the desktop.

Next reboot into Safe Mode. You can get there by restarting your computer and continually tapping F8 until a menu appears. Use your arrow to highlight Safe Mode then hit enter.

Open the smitRem folder, then double click the RunThis.bat file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on screen. Wait for the tool to complete and disk cleanup to finish. The tool will create a log named smitfiles.txt in the root of your drive (where your operating system is installed). You will need that log later.

Next click Start>Settings>Control Panel>Display>Desktop>Customize Desktop>Web and uncheck "Security Info" if present.

Reboot back into Normal Mode and rescan with HijackThis.

Paste the contents of a new HijackThis Log, the contents of smitfiles.txt in your next reply.

Hey,
I ran smitRem in safe mode and everything was going fine. The disc cleanup came on and was running very slowly. I know sometimes it can take a couple hours, so I let it run overnight. This morning, however, it was still at the same point it was last night, but it wasn't frozen (it said "running" in the processes window and you could move the window around adn minimize it and such). It was calculating how much memory it could free up if it compressed files and it just stayed there. Before I left for work this morning I tried to run the disc cleanup seperately, but it would not start at all (just an hourglass for a couple seconds, then nothing). I can get it to start in regular mode, but it just sits at the same spot, though it doesn't freeze. Do I absolutely need the disc cleanup to do its thing before proceeding? Incidentally, I know it's been a while since we did a defrag or a cleanup, but that thing must have run for close to ten hours and got nowhere.

Thanks again,
Tim

Okay. I guess one of AVG Antispyware's updates was able to get the majority of what I had, because I ran it again and it seems to have gotten most of the malware (browser hijack gone, pop-ups and fake system errors gone). However, I can still see traces of this Quality Codec thing and according to my latest Panda scan there are still quite a few evil programs left over, though at the moment they don't seem to be doing anything.

OK, let's get rid of the stragglers.

Using Windows Explorer, find and delete these folders:

C:\Program Files\QualityCodec
C:\Program Files\VirusBursters

Click here to download System Security Suite. Extract it from the zip file into a folder and doubleclick on sss.exe. Check the boxes under the 'Items to Clear' tab and click 'Clear Selected Items'. You will be prompted to reboot, do so.

Let me know if they are still showing up.

Well, things are definitely looking better. I was not able to find C:\Program Files\QualityCodec or
C:\Program Files\VirusBursters, but I ran SSS anyway, and now they don't appear on the Activescan log, so I guess that program got them. I notice there are still some cookies and temp files that I figured SSS would have deleted when it got rid of everything else. Is this because we have three separate users on XP? Do I need to run this on each account to get rid of everything? Aside from that, everything looks good to me, but I figured I'd post the latest activescan just to be sure.

Yes, run SSS on all your user accounts and that will clean it up. Do this also. Go to Jotti's malware scan

Copy and paste the following file path into the "File to upload & scan" box on the top of the page:

C:\Program Files\Music Collector\FlicAPI.dll

Click on the submit button. Please post the results in your next reply.

Alrighty. After several more scans on the different desktops, it appears that I am clean! I just finished running an activescan report and it showed the following:

Incident Status Location

Adware:Adware/QualityCodec Not disinfected C:\Documents and Settings\Timothy\Desktop\hijackthis\backups\backup-20061110-220951-273.dll
Potentially unwanted tool:Application/Processor Not disinfected C:\Documents and Settings\Timothy\Desktop\smitRem\Process.exe

Possible Virus. Not disinfected C:\Program Files\Music Collector\FlicAPI.dll
I had looked up FlicAPI.dll on the music collector website and it said it sometimes shows up as a false positive. Nevertheless, I ran it through jotti and it came back negative (Status OK). The only thing I am curious about is the QualityCodec in the hijackthis backup. There are also some virusbursters icons on one of the desktops, but the icons themselves are missing, so I'm assuming they're just leftovers that don't actually point to anything. Can I just manually remove this from the desktop and the start menu? Other than that, I think everything's good.

Thanks a lot,
Tim

Sorry, I didn't see any "print report" feature so I figured it didn't matter as long as it was negative. I ran it again and just copied and pasted the results.

File: FlicAPI.dll

OK good. You can delete the HJT backups and manually remove any virusbursters stragglers. Is it still running OK?
