Great news bbrown4 !

Is it okay to delete this file - O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [ares] "C:\Program Files\Ares\Ares.exe" -h? I believe this is what started my problems in the first place.


Sure can, Use HJT to remove it same way you have been,

Search for files/folders and remove the folder

Ares
and
SAH

Other than that,

Nice job your log is clean !
How is it running ?
Please use the following suggestion to help prevent reinfection

Download the following program, For keeping crap off your system to begin with
Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests. Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox. Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Download Spyware Blaster

Keep Ad-aware and Spybot handy, Check them for updates prior to running and run them weekly
Same with your Anti Virus,

For an added check run an online virus scan, you can use one of the 2 below,
TrendMicro's HouseCall
ActiveScan

Be sure and give the Temp folders a cleaning out now and then as well, Make sure after you clean your Temp files to empty out your Recycle bin as well.
For ease use the following program
Download and install Cleanup
Run "Cleanup" and when it has finished, Reboot

Remeber to Check Windows for updates

Probably a good time to create a new restore point See Here Name it clean or something like that,

Don77,

You are good and thank you so much for your help! My system is running great. There is still one pop-up called aurora that I am getting, but I can live with that. I will definitely be sending you a small donation to show my appreciation.

Thanks again for your help!

Your very welcome Burrell, And Thank you,

Give this program a try. They have a free verison you can download.

Ewido Security Suite
http://www.ewido.net/en/

Be sure to get the updates first before scanning. Do the scan in Safe Mode so it has the best chance of killing any files that want to run on startup.

Thanks for the file Don77, it found more viruses and hidden malware. Okay since you have all the answers, what do you know about this callinghome.biz that spybot cannot remove? The 2 files to this application are hidden in my registry as DLMAX.

I plan to load XP SP2 today. Will these files cause conflicts?

Thanks,

Burrell

Did you download and run Cleanup!
If not do so now,

Next
Please run these two online scans. Make sure they are set to clean automatically:

TrendMicro's HouseCall
ActiveScan

You should try to delete any files that these scanners are unable to clean. Make sure you check the 'Disinfect automatically' option in Active scan, and check the “Auto Clean” option in TrendMicro, Then let us know if its working better and what the scans found.

Then scan again with HijackThis and post another log.

Yes, I did download and run Cleanup.

I ran Activescan and below is what it found. It says it found 47 infections. The other online scan TrendMicro's HouseCall would not download or run.

Don77,

I could not delete the files below. I kept getting a message that ACCESS IS DENIED. MAKE SURE DISK IS NOT FULL OR WRITE-PROTECTED AND THAT THE FILE IS NOT CURRENTLY IN USE.

Spybot scan results:

Congratulations!: No immediate threats were found.

Thanks for getting rid of callinghome.biz, but now the above problems has arisen.

Will you be able to remove these harmful files?

Don77,

I ran Cleanup!

I updated and ran Ad-aware and I am setup on how to use it.

Unable to run a scan with TrendMicro's HouseCall. It will not load.

I ran a scan with Ewido Security suite and this is what it found:

Is Farmmext and Dlmax invincible or something?

They are persistant aren't they,,,,

Click here to download Pocket Killbox by Option^Explicit. Extract it from the zip file then double-click on Killbox.exe to run it. Place the following lines (complete paths) in bold in the "Full Path of File to Delete" box in Killbox, and click the red button with the white X on it after each. Keep track of any files it tells you either could not be found or could not be deleted, as you'll need those later:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\a95kfrhe.ini
C:\WINDOWS\system32\ap2nqrd4.dat
C:\WINDOWS\system32\baur5s9q.dat
C:\WINDOWS\system32\q10pvbrv.dat
C:\WINDOWS\system32\q17i9a4j.ini
C:\WINDOWS\system32\ritsacnk.dat
C:\WINDOWS\Temp\DrTemp\farmmext.exe
C:\WINDOWS\Temp\DrTemp\farmmext.inf
C:\WINDOWS\Temp\DrTemp\farmmext.ini
C:\WINDOWS\Temp\THI1995.tmp\farmmext.exe
C:\WINDOWS\Temp\THI1995.tmp\farmmext.inf
C:\WINDOWS\Temp\THI1995.tmp\farmmext.ini
C:\WINDOWS\Temp\THI45B7.tmp\farmmext.exe
C:\WINDOWS\Temp\THI45B7.tmp\farmmext.inf
C:\WINDOWS\Temp\THI45B7.tmp\farmmext.ini
C:\WINDOWS\Temp\THICDE.tmp\dlmax.dll
C:\WINDOWS\Temp\THICDE.tmp\dlmax.inf


For the files that it either couldn't find or couldn't delete, in the killbox again this time, put a mark next to "Delete on Reboot". Copy and paste each file into the file name box, then click the red button with the X after each. It will ask you if you want to reboot each time you click it, answer NO until after you've pasted the last file name, at which time you should answer Yes.

If you receive a message such as: "Component 'MsComCtl.ocx' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid." when trying to run TheKillbox, click here to download and run missingfilesetup.exe. Then try TheKillbox again.


Run another scan with ewido lets see how we made out

Don77,

Killbox gave me a message when I click it to reboot after I pasted the last file name. The message was "PendingfilenameOperations Registry Data has been removed by External Process".

I ran ewido and below is the scan report:

These guys are tough. They got to be ready to go down soon.

Also, I notice the Wupdt in the C:\Windows\Temp\DrTemp\wupdt.exe. Shouldn't that file be deleted?
