Little problem I have been havin the past few weeks. Just random pop-ups and slowing down my internet connection. It seems that when i am experiencing the slow down from internet connection, killing explorer.exe solves it temporarily. Seems to be a trojan as well. I know what the problem is:
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {14F8215D-638E-4238-B06D-6788B54023B3} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\vtutu.dll
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {FBD29C3C-C642-4843-A627-6E54A947B511} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\ddcaxww.dll
O20 - Winlogon Notify: ddcaxww - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ddcaxww.dll

I just can't seem to get rid of it. I have tried hijackthis, avg, remove on restart and killbox. But none get rid of it. Any help would be apprciated, i'm just about ready to format.

oh and as a side note it just popped up i didn't have v2 of hijack this but the files that i believe to be the problem don't appear in v2, so i will post both.

EDIT: i just realized i forgot to change the name of hijackthis when i downloaded v2 and that's why they weren't showing.

Hi there,

Welcome to GeeksToGo. My name is RatHat, and I will help you get through the process of cleaning the malware from your computer.


OK firstly, I need you to print out each post I make so that you can refer to it while we fix your computer. This is because there will be times when you are unable to be online to read my instructions, and I will want you to do everything very carefully. I also need you to follow my instructions in the order that they are given. If however, you cannot carry out one of them, please continue on with the next and let me know what you were unsuccessful with. Please ensure you turn off word wrap in Notepad. To do this, open Notepad, choose Format, then Un-check Word Wrap. (Word Wrap makes reading your log difficult).

Next, I would like to make sure that you can view hidden files and folders;
  • Click Start.
  • Open My Computer.
  • Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
  • Select the View tab.
  • Under the Hidden files and folders heading SELECT Show hidden files and folders.
  • UNCHECK the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
  • UNCHECK the Hide extensions for known file types option.
  • Click Yes to confirm.
  • Click OK.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Please download ComboFix from Here or Here to your Desktop.

**Note: In the event you already have Combofix, this is a new version that I need you to download. It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**
  • Close any open browsers.
  • Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    • Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
    • Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.

      -----------------------------------------------------------

    • WARNING: Combofix will disconnect your machine from the Internet as soon as it starts
    • Please do not attempt to re-connect your machine back to the Internet until Combofix has completely finished.
    • If there is no internet connection after running Combofix, then restart your computer to restore back your connection.

    -----------------------------------------------------------

  • Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
  • When finished, it will produce a report for you.

**Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall**
