The disk cleanup process still doesn't seem to be working. I get a window that says........


Disk Cleanup is calculating how much space you will be able to free on[C:] This may take a few minutes to complete.

Ok.
Maybye it can be fixed after you apply Service Pack 2.

Question.
The entry in the Kaspersky log >C:\WINDOWS\system32\colbact did it have a file name behind it such as .exe or was it just a folder?

The colbact entry doesn't have a file name behind it and it's not a folder. I went to system32 and checked the properties of the file and it's listed as just a file, unknown application. It's named as follows: colbact(3
There is no extension.




As for applying SP2, everytime I've tried upgrading in the past, I would get a lot of problems with my computer running erratically, so I gave up on it.

Also, I noticed a new application file on my computer in the Windows folder named CPU. It was created on 02 22 08. I don't recall downloading/installing this. Any ideas about it? My computer has been running very slow since yesterday.

Okay Copy everything inside the quote box below (starting with dir) and paste it into notepad. Go up to "File > Save As" and click the drop-down box to change the "Save As Type" to "All Files". Save it as findfile.bat on your Desktop.

dir C:\WINDOWS\CPU /a h > files.txt
notepad files.txt


Locate findfile.bat on your Desktop and double-click on it. It will open Notepad with some text in it. Please post the contents of that Notepad here.

Do you mean the folder where the CPU file is located?

That would be C:\WINDOWS\cpu.exe


Or do you mean the Directory of C:\Documents and Settings\brent\Desktop? That would be everything that's on my desktop. I can post the names of these files, but that may take a while because I have a lot of crap on my desktop. I will post it if this is what you need.

Sorry I misread what you were saying I thought that you said there was a folder named cpu, I see now that it is a file.

  • Please double-click OTMoveIt2.exe to run it. (Vista users, please right click on OTMoveit2.exe and select "Run as an Administrator")
  • Copy the file paths below to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose Copy):

    C:\WINDOWS\cpu.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\colbact(3
  • Return to OTMoveIt2, right click in the "Paste List of Files/Folders to be Moved" window (under the light blue bar) and choose Paste.
  • Click the red Moveit! button.
  • OTMoveit2 will create a log of moved files in the C:\_OTMoveIt\MovedFiles folder. The log's name will appear as the date and time it was created, with the format mmddyyyy_hhmmss.log. Open this log in Notepad and post its contents in your next reply.
  • Close OTMoveIt2
If a file or folder cannot be moved immediately you may be asked to reboot the machine to finish the move process. If you are asked to reboot the machine choose Yes.
Post those results and then do the following
========================
Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here or Here

Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.

  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy&Paste the entire report in your next reply.
Extra Note:
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove,you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts,click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process,if asked to restart the computer,please do so immediately.

PLease go ahead and delete this file >colbact(3 as otmove it did not see it.
=====================================================
Go Here and download CCleaner.
Double click on it to install it.
Click on your language then Next then I agree then next again.
When you come to the Installation options window (the next window after clicking next)
Uncheck all but Create a Desktop Shortcut.
Then Click on Install.

After it is installed double click on the icon on your desktop to run it.
Choose Run Cleaner then yes at the prompt to permanently delete files.
It may take a while so let it finish.

After that Click on the icon to the left called Registry
Then click on scan for issues.
Then click on Fix selected issues.
And then yes to making a backup.
It will save it in your MY Documents Folder.
Then Click on Fix all selected issues and yes that you really want to do it.
After that is done then exit out of CCleaner.

You can uninstall it if you want to but I would keep it as this will replace disk cleanup and it does a better job.
================================================================================
========
After that let me know how things are running?

Sorry it took so long for me to re-post. My online service has been down.

Deleted the colbact file.

Ran the CCleaner. The computer is running smoother.
My CPU fan stopped working a couple of weeks back, so it's still a little slow from that, but I've noticed a considerable improvement since youv'e helped me with the malware.

My defrag doesn't work either. Does this program available here-
http://www.filehippo...oad_defraggler/
work well in place of the windows defrag ?

Never tried it but it is worth a shot :)

We still have a bit to clean up on what we used and then you will be on your way :)
======================================================
Uninstall Malware Bytes antimalware <doing this will remove the quarantine as well

then Time for some housekeeping
  • Click START then RUN
  • Now type Combofix /u in the runbox and click OK


    [list]
  • Posted Image

The above procedure will delete and do the following:

  • ComboFix and its associated files and folders.
  • VundoFix backups, if present
  • The C:\Deckard folder, if present
  • The C:_OtMoveIt folder, if present
  • Reset the clock settings.
  • Hide file extensions, if required.
  • Hide System/Hidden files, if required.
  • Clean System Restore points.

Also delete\uninstall anything that we used that is left over.
=============================================
After that Your log is clean. :)

To find out more information about how you got infected in the first place and some great guidelines to follow to prevent future infections you can read this article by Tony Klein ->Here

Well I performed the ComboFix procedure and removed the tools used ,except for the CCleaner. I also liked the malwarebytes program, although I deleted it. I may have to dowmload it again in the future, to check for hard to find viruses.

Thanks a lot for the help. :)
