Hi...

my pc keeps freezing, looking at Windows Task Manager it seems I've lost memery because the cache easily goes up to 100% and I have the same programs running when in the past I never had an issue..

I'm running a P4 XP, 750 Ram

I suspect I downloaded a virus a couple of days ago because since then my pc just locks up after a short while..I'm hoping to type this up before it does...

sound also no longer works including no mp3 etc. ..my pc would lock midway through a virus check or spy bot search and destory or adaware for example...

Welcome to GTG.

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.

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that 'Display the contents of system folders' is checked. If you have Windows XP, the search feature is a little different. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that 'Search system folders', 'Search hidden files and folders', and 'Search subfolders' are checked.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

Download LSPFix http://www.greyknigh.../spy/LSPFix.exe and run it. Click on newdotnet6_38.dll on the left window and click on the arrow pointing to the right. Click Finish and follow the prompts.

Reboot into Safe Mode by hitting the F8 key until menu shows up. In some systems, this may be the F5 key, so try that if F8 doesn't work. 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\lzlkrm.exe

Uninstall the following via the Add/Remove Panel (Start->(Settings)->Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs) if they exist:

180 Search Assistant
New.Net
Acceleration Software


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):

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\lzlkrm.exe
C:\Program Files\Acceleration Software\
c:\program files\newdotnet\


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

Post the following also:

Download and install CleanUp http://cleanup.stevengould.org/
Download KillBox http://www.atribune....ads/KillBox.exe
Download rkfiles http://skads.org/special/rkfiles.zip and unzip the contents to a new folder on your desktop.

Download the remv3.zip at http://forums.skads....hp?showtopic=80 (look for the attachment posted in that second reply). Make a new folder on the root drive C:\ and unzip remv3.zip files into it.

Go to My Computer->Tools->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that Show hidden files and folders is enabled. Also make sure that the System Files and Folders are showing/visible also.

Run CleanUp program now and logoff.

REBOOT TO SAFE MODE. These tools MUST be run in safe mode!
Once in safe mode, double click rkfiles.bat file to run it. It will scan for a while, so please be patient. Wait until the DOS window closes. Open the C:\log.txt it created and rename it log1.txt.

Now open the folder where you saved remv3.zip files and double click the rem.bat file and let it run. It will delete the files and remove the infection and then make a log of the files it finds. The log file will be C:\log.txt and bad1.txt

**Note** Each tool uses log.txt as it’s output file so make sure you save the entries from one tools log before running the other as it will overwrite the file if you don’t.

Reboot back to normal mode and post the contents of both the log.txt and log1.txt in your next post.

I couldn't find the following to delete

C:\Program Files\Accleration Software
C:\Program Files\newdotnet\


I did find and delte c:\windows\system32\lzlkrm.exe but this file also came up in the search:

c:\windows\prefetch\lzlkrm.exe-328686A1.pf <--- should I delete this too?

I downloaded the files you recommened, I ran the cleaner and I noticed it got rid of a lot of tmp files.

However, when I reboot in safe mode and ran the rkfiles.bat my pc would lock up after a few minutes just like it always does recently. It's a shame because I already haf micrsofoft anitspyware and a trend micro antivrus program and this still happened.

Should I retry the scan?

THANKS AGAIN!!!!

We need the rkfiles log since that will tell us the files that are responsible for this. Restart and run it again. If that still won't work, do this:

Right click on http://www.silentrun...ent Runners.vbs and choose Save As...Save it to your Desktop. Make sure you have disabled any programs that may block/disable scripts (ex: Ad-Watch, TeaTimer, Norton, etc.). Double click on 'Silent Runners' to run it. This will take a few minutes. It will create a file called 'Startup Programs' followed by your computer name and current date. Open up that file and post all the contents here in your next post.

Download FindQoologic-Narrator.zip at http://forums.net-in...=post&id=134981 and save it to your Desktop. Create a new folder on your desktop (right click and select New->Folder) and call it FindQoologic. Now unzip the file contents of that zip file into that folder. Locate and double-click the Find-Qoologic.bat file to run it. Wait until a text file opens and post that in your next reply.

Download DllCompare http://www.greyknigh.../DllCompare.exe and run it. Click on the 'Locate.com' button. Wait a few seconds and then click on the 'Compare' button. Let it run, then click on 'Make a log of what was found'. Post that log here. Note: If you are having problems using DllCompare (16 bit error), copy autoexec.nt from the C:\WINDOWS\repair folder to C:\WINDOWS\system32 folder. Now try running DllCompare.

I got a similar error with the second program..i think it would happen only after i clicked on the first program and got the first error message (including if i did this under safe mode) because surprisingly right now I clicked on the second program with the bat file and I got this output with another error message but still got this nonetheless.

Do you use a program called WinUHA?

Run this program (download it first) and see if scripting is enabled. If not, enable it now. Now run Silent Runners.

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:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\ and delete kykxgtym

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.

Try rkfiles and Silent Runners again.

Hi..

I think I've downlaoded WINUHA before, don't recall for what though bit I know it was a long while ago.


I downloaded the scripting program and it said that it was already enabled...I also deleted that registry line...unfortunately after a few minutes of running rkfiles it froze again...I'm going to keep trying both..

I don't know if this would help but it just feels like my pc gets overwhelmed now if too many things are going on at once when nothing much is really going on at all..for example like virus scans, etc..

THANKS

OK, if it still fails, post back. I assume you are trying all of this in Safe Mode, still with no luck?

OK, I forgot to ask you to do this earlier, so here it is:

The first step in this process is to apply Service Pack 1a for Windows XP. Without this update, you're wide open to re-infection, and we're both just wasting our time.
Click here: http://www.microsoft...p1/default.mspx

Maybe try running rkfiles now?

Hi,

Yes I've tried the scan both under normal and safe modes and still no luck. I've actually been having trouble now with restarts as windows starts running and program are starting up its locking up then as well. Also after a restart my anti virus told me of a "trojan_small" or something close to that that it located and cleaned but unforunately nothing's changed in terms of performance. I can't install that service pack because it says some key is incorrect. Tbe thing is I've experienced this before when I tried to install service pack 2. had gotten windows along with my pc when I bought it and I never got a windows Cd.

I don't know if you saw this earlier but I found this file and was wondering if maybe I should delete it and if it could help.

c:\windows\prefetch\lzlkrm.exe-328686A1.pf <--- should I delete this too?

Thanks again...

So you can't run that rkfiles at all? Even if you close all the running programs from the system tray?

Yes, you may delete that file. I suggest emptying the whole Prefetch folder in this case since you have some bad files there.

Hi greyknight17,

I just wanted you to know that I believe I fixed the problem I had with the pc locking up. I took it to a guy who opened it up and told me that the cooling fan clips had broken off and it wasn't doing it's job properly. I've had a new fan installed since then and no problems.

I'm still interested in cleaning whatever I may still have on the pc...any recommendations as to which scans I should undertake now?

best regards..

Glad you found the problem there. OK, let's see what else we should remove then.

Give me a new rkfiles log (boot into safe mode to do it) and then restart and run a HijackThis scan. When finished, post both the HijackThis and rkfiles log.
