Hi THX 1138,

I moved your thread to the Malware forum since it looks as if you have a brandnew virus there.

See HERE for how to show hidden files.

Then do a Find Files for xpspz.exe

Can you surf to:
http://virusscan.jotti.org/
and upload that file there.
Let me know the results.

Check the items listed below in HijackThis, close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [netdaemon] C:\WINDOWS\System32\netdaemon /v

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AdTools Service] C:\Program Files\AdTools Service\AdTools.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [New.net Startup] rundll32 C:\PROGRA~1\NEWDOT~1\NEWDOT~1.DLL,NewDotNetStartup -s
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Windows-XP-Service-Pack] xpspz.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [Windows-XP-Service-Pack] xpspz.exe

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Eatu] C:\Documents and Settings\Shankar Kaimal\Application Data\weur.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Windows-XP-Service-Pack] xpspz.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\RunServices: [Windows-XP-Service-Pack] xpspz.exe

Reboot into safe mode and delete:
C:\Program Files\AdTools Service <= entire folder
C:\WINDOWS\System32\netdaemon

Then boot back to normal and follow instructions here to get rid of NewDotNet:
http://www.newdotnet.com/removal.html

Post back with a new HijackThis log.

Works for me I'll copy the info you need:

PROCEDURE 1 (Add/Remove Programs):
Click on Start.
Click on Settings.
Click on Control Panel.
From the Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove Programs.
Click on the Install/Uninstall tab in the Add/Remove Programs Properties window.
Locate either New.net Application or New.net Domains and select it.
Click on the Add/Remove button.
After removal of our software, you may be prompted to reboot. Please reboot after removing our software.
If this does not fully remove our software, please proceed to PROCEDURE 2.

Note: you really need to change every password and other important data you have on that computer.
There is no way to find out how much information was captured and to whom the Keylogger fed it.

I'd like you to scan one more file at jotti's:
C:\WINDOWS\System32\ServiceM.exe
Let me know the results.

Can we please do this one step at a time and can you try to consider that english is not my first language, so reading your abbreviations is sometimes confusing.

First I want to know ServiceM.exe is or does.

Can you find the file, rightclick it and look on the version tab what you can find out.

Under Add/Remove Software if you highlight a program the buttons don't show up at all or is only the one for NewDotNet missing?

OK Not listed in Add/Remove Software:

PROCEDURE 2 (Uninstall from Hard Drive):
Double-click on My Computer.
Double-click on the C: drive.
Double-click on the Program Files folder.
Locate and double-click on the NewDotNet folder. If there is no folder, please proceed to PROCEDURE 3.
Locate and double-click on the uninstall executable; it will be labeled uninstallX_XX.exe. (“X” represents the version number of the uninstaller and you should always use the latest version)
After removal of our software, you may be prompted to reboot. Please reboot after removing our software.
If this does not fully remove our software, please proceed to PROCEDURE 3.

Please surf to
http://www.thespykil...x.php?topic=5.0
and follow the instructions there to upload
C:\WINDOWS\System32\ServiceM.exe
I'd like to have a look for myself.

Click Start > Run type services.msc > OK
In the list of services find:
ServiceM
Rightclick that line and choose Properties.
On the General tab Stop and set the service to disabled.

We will have a good look at the file, but it is packed, so it will take a little longer.
This way the file will at least not run until we know what it does.
