OK, that file in the system32 folder keeps changing. My suggestion is to delete it if it changed its name again. If I'm correct, you can sort the system32 folder by date and that new random named file should be the earliest one created in there. Delete that one also (see below).

Again, some things may not be present anymore, I'm listed them anyway just in case they pop back up. So if it doesn't apply, just move on. But for that system32 file, make sure you find out what the new name is if you can't find it from the list I gave you.

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should 'not' have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Do NOT restart.

Go to Start->Run and type in regedit and hit OK. Go to File->Export and save the registry somewhere as a backup. While in the Registry Editor, navigate to the following (fix whatever applies, if it's not there just skip it):

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ and delete aurora

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ and delete Bolger

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ and delete BolgerDll.BolgerDllObj

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\ and delete {302A3240-4805-4a34-97D7-1645A0B08410}

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Interface\ and delete {BB0D5ADC-028D-4185-9288-722DDCE2C757}

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\TypeLib\ and delete {92DAF5C1-2135-4E0C-B7A0-259ABFCD3904}

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Monitors\ZepMon Driver and delete DrPMon.dll

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Print\Monitors\ZepMon Driver and delete DrPMon.dll

If any of the above registry keys are giving you problems deleting, right click on them and click on Permissions. Then click on the Advanced button. Make sure the first box (Inherit from parent...) is checked. Click OK and OK. Then try deleting the entry again. Once you're done, close the Registry Editor.

Go to Start->Run and type in cmd and hit OK. Then type in the following (hit Enter after each line):

cd windows
nail.exe /FullRemove

Make sure to close any open browsers. Go into HijackThis->Config->Misc. Tools->Open process manager. Select the following and click 'Kill process' for each one if they are still listed (they shouldn't be - but double check):

c:\windows\system32\giqoak.exe - this might be a different name now - if that's the case, sort your system32 folder by date and delete the most recent file created that looks random

Run a scan in HijackThis. Check each of the following and hit 'Fix checked' (after checking them) if they still exist (make sure not to miss any):

F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe C:\WINDOWS\Nail.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ondmnye] c:\windows\system32\bgixibs.exe

Delete the following Files/Folders (delete folders if no filename is specified) according to their directory (if none, just do a search for them) and delete them if they exist:


c:\windows\system32\giqoak.exe - this might be a different name now - if that's the case, sort your system32 folder by date and delete the most recent file created that looks random

Reboot into Normal Mode run a new HijackThis scan. Save the log file and post it here.

Well...the only new file in the System32 is status.mpf I didn't delete it, cause I don't know what .mpf is...and you were having me delete an .exe Needless to say, it totally didn't work! Any more help you can give? (And I promise I am doing EVERYTHING as you say, right down to capital letters and ALL!)
