Cheesewad malware clowns saw that coming:

System pid: 4 \<unable to open process>

That's where they are running unseen threads I was hoping to catch, and suspend. If they are there, and that System process being blocked suggests they are. And stop their monitoring, and blocking/interfering with tools. No, you posted the log, so no need to send it as email.

For right now, run RogueKiller again. When prompted, type 6 (Shortcut HJFix) and then press Enter. Post that resulting log please.

Ran Combofix overnight - 10hrs.
Same result ....
Scanning for infested files
This typically doesn't take more than 10 minutes
However scan times for badly infected machines may easily double.
...... and this is as far as the scan progressed.

Hmm. Handle being blocked from looking at the System process suggests something is loading early, then loading it's own handles, and guarding them.

Right click Computer, left click Manage - Disk Management. The list above references the partitions that should show in that display (Partitions 1, 2 , 3, 4). Dell has some unusual partitions, but I am curious about that #4, shown as a DOS partition. Do you recognize that through your knowledge of your system there?

If you can, go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, Snipping Tool. Make a snapshot of that Disk Management display, save that, and either attach it here, upload to a free site like PhotoBucket, or zip and email it to me please.

This is a print screen of the computer management display.
Should I be looking for something Specific?

Looks like Skype running there. That can be a fair resource waster, so if you do not use it regularly, you may want to open it, and look for the option to disable it from startup (just run it when you want to use it).

That 2.5 Mb partition is curious. See what MBRCheck picks up.

I read the last part of your post after I sent the screen shot of comp mgmt display.
Is that OK, or do I still need to use the snipping tool method?

I've opened zipped files before, but I have never zipped a file.
I use jZip to extract zipped files, but am not having success at zipping a .DAT file.
When I open jZip, I get a message - "jZip could not create temp folder"
When I click on OK, jZip opens but only the New Archive,Open Archive, and Style icons are active.
Add, Extract, and View icons are greyed out (inactive).
Not sure if it is me, the file type, or the program that is the problem.

I opened this gibberish (to me!)in Open Office which may mean something to you.
Where do I go from here? From what I can glean from the web, I need to determine what kind of
file it is - video,email attachment,pic etc.

No, OpenOffice's Writer wasn't intended to read that file. Right click the file - SendTo - Compressed (zipped) Folder. That will create a zipped copy of that file in the same location. Send that zipped file please.

I have no idea why, but only just now yahoo email alerted me of two new emails, and then I still had to search for unread emails to locate those you sent me. So truly sorry for the delay. I received the MBR, thanks. Looks okay, and matches other mbr's scanned recently (so suggests a known, system's mbr).

Windows needs to install driver software for your Matshita DVD+ -RW UJ-857G ATA drive

sc config cdrom start= system

You should get a "Success" confirmation. Then just type exit and press Enter to close the command window.

Did you get a success confirmation when you made that change?

Could not access internet in "safe mode with networking"

Lately the malware has been making it appear as no Internet connection has been made. One way to verify this is to go to Start Search, type cmd.exe in the Start Search box. Cmd.exe will appear at the top of the Menu. Rightclick on it and choose "Run as administrator". At the prompt copy/paste the following, pressing Enter after each:

ping www.google.com

That fails, no Internet. If it succeeds, you will get the timing results back from "pinging" Goog, and now you actually do have access.


This from your very first post:

Filename: c:\Windows\System32\drivers\dfsc.sys
Threat Name: Trojan horse Hider.OMK

Time to look into that. Open SystemLook again, and run the following script:


Then click Look. Once the scan completes Notepad will open - copy/paste those contents back here please. That will also be saved as a log where you have the scan file, named SystemLook.txt.


o to Start Search, type cmd.exe in the Start Search box. Cmd.exe will appear at the top of the Menu. Rightclick on it and choose "Run as administrator". At the prompt copy/paste the following, pressing Enter after each:

sc qc dfs > c:\mikey.txt&c:\mikey.txt

Note pad should open when that completes. Post those contents back here please.
