Copy everything in the code box below and paste it into a new Notepad. Change the "Save As Type" to "All Files" and save it as removejobA.bat on your desktop.

%systemdrive% 
cd C:\WINDOWS\Tasks 
attrib -r -s -h AF961A6B933D8ABF.job 
del AF961A6B933D8ABF.job


Locate removejobA.bat Double-click the file.

Wait a minute, then do this one:

Copy everything in the code box below and paste it into a new Notepad. Change the "Save As Type" to "All Files" and save it as removejobB.bat on your desktop.

%systemdrive% 
cd C:\WINDOWS\Tasks 
attrib -r -s -h B2DEE1859DA18E4D.job 
del B2DEE1859DA18E4D.job


Locate removejobB.bat Double-click the file.

After it's done, please do this again:

Delete this folder (be sure your hidden files are showing otherwise you won't find it) If hidden files are showing and it's still not there, good!

After following the instructions in my previous post, please do this:

Disconnect from the Internet.
Disable Norton Auto-Protect.
Disable Ewido.
Disable AOL Anti-Spyware.

Read these carefully. We are using HiJackThis in place of Process Explorer and using Killbox a different way. I sure hope this works!

*Open HiJackThis
*Click on "Open the Misc Tools Section"
*Click on "Open Process Manager"
*In the top right-hand corner it will say "Show DLLs" - please put a checkmark in this box.
*Another panel will open on the bottom.
*In the TOP panel, I need you to click on C:\Windows\System\Winlogon.exe to highlight it.
*When it's highlighted all the DLLs will load in the BOTTOM panel.
*In this BOTTOM panel I need you to find all instances of C:\WINDOWS\repair\catip.dll
*Highlight the first one you see and click "Kill Process"
*Do this for each instance of C:\WINDOWS\repair\catip.dll until all of them under Winlogon are killed (you may have to "refresh list" to make sure they are all gone)
*Go back up to the TOP Panel and locate C:\Windows\Explorer.exe
*Do the same exact thing you did above for winlogon.exe

You may be prompted after each one "are you sure" make sure to click YES!

Next run HijackThis and place a check beside the following items and click FIX CHECKED:

O2 - BHO: MSEvents Object - {44240BB5-BD7D-4D49-A1AA-8AB0F3D3CB44} - C:\WINDOWS\repair\catip.dll

O20 - Winlogon Notify: catip - C:\WINDOWS\repair\catip.dll


Close HijackThis.

Double click on vundo.reg that's on your desktop and click YES when asked if you want to merge with the registry. Wait for the merged successfully prompt.

*Please pay close attention to the new Killbox instructions!

Double click on Killbox.exe and then click the "REPLACE on Reboot", then put a checkmark next to "Use Dummy"

Enter the following filepath and filename into the Full path of file to delete box (in the upper box, please leave the 2nd box exactly as it is!):

C:\WINDOWS\repair\catip.dll

Click the red circle with the white x and allow your computer to reboot.

After your computer has rebooted please run Hijackthis again and post a new HijackThis log.

Hmmm, I attempted the first instructions and verified folder options looking at all files. I can't find C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Aim Wipe Ace Fast. All other instructions appear to work (removejobA.bat & removejobB.bat)

The second set of instructions were less successful. In Hijackthis, I highlighted C:\WINDOWS\System32\Winlogon.exe, and found the catip.dll in the bottom pane, but I can't kill it.

I get a message that says:

The selected process could not be killed. It may have already been closed or it may be protected by windows.

This process might be a service which you can stop from the services applet in Admin tools.

I looked in services.misc, but I don't see anything that looks like catip.dll

I went ahead to hijackthis and fixed the 02 BHO and 20 Winlogon Notify:

Closed Hijackthis and ran vundo.reg

Opened killbox and everything ran per instructions, Replace on boot, Use Dummy, and For the first time it appeared to run the system rebooted. Here is the log, but I still have the virus alert...

I would guess killing that process is key, but is it possible...I guess eventually we will know. Thanks for your help. Harold

That's about right :tazz:

Yes, you are correct, the key to getting rid of this is to kill all of it's running processes. Which means we need to get Process Explorer to work.

Please delete the copy of Process Explorer that you have. Disable AOL anti-spyware, norton auto-protect, and Ewido. Download a fresh copy of Process Explorer, disconnect from the Internet and see if it will now allow you to see the processes under Winlogon.

Attached File  process_explorer.doc   46KB   47 downloads

I have deleted and downlaoded a new copy of process explorer, but nothing seems to matter. This is what I can see (attached), but I can't kill anything. I can see and kill catip.dll stuff when I view explorer properties, (threads). I'll keep trying different combinations using everything that you have provided while I wait for more ideas. I'll let you know if anything changes or I make any progress getting to the winlogon threads. Thanks Harold

Nothing seems to work, without going into a lot of details, I've attempted to use process explorer, hijackthis, and admin services, but I can't seem to get access to winlogon.exe threads. I've also attempted more combinations of using the removal tool, killbox and these tools as well. Same results, when I finally reboot normally, I get the virus alert. Harold

Do you receive any kind of error message when you run Process Explorer? The reason I ask is because I'm also running XP SP2 and when I run Process Explorer, based on your screenshot, it looks a lot different.

No, Process explorer seems to run fine, it just doesn't allow access to threads under Winlogon. As a matter of fact it doesn't even allow you to read anything except the address. When I use Hijackthis atleast I can see the list of DLLs. ? I'll keep trying.

It's the correct version.

Do this for me, please:

Go into C:\Windows\System32 and look to see if there is a file called AUTOEXEC.NT and a file called CONFIG.NT

Let me know if either one of these are missing.

I have both of them, but as I have been looking at the process explorer I nolonger have any catip.dll information when I look at explorer.exe threads? I can still see registry entries, and of course I have the virus alert and I can see the c:\WINDOWS\repair\catip.dll when I look for it with Hijack this under winlogon.exe and obviously I can go to the windows\repair\directory and find it...Your guess is better than mine, but I hope that is progress. I have had to delete 4 entries every other time I've looked there?

Yes, I have something like that, but just for grins I single clicked on smss.exe and I don't get anything in the lower pane? I don't get anything in the lower pane when I look at winlogon.exe either. I can look at handles, but not DLLs, I can view DLLs in explorer and sysytem??? Maybe that is another problem or configuration issue? I don't know enough to say. I don't think that I have any problems, but I didn't know anything about the LOP virus either...
