That remains to be seen. :tazz:

Lets start off by downloading a few necessary programs.

Download and Unzip Process Explorer Here
Scroll to the bottom of the page and select your Operating System.
Unzip it to its own folder on the desktop so you can find it later.
Download and install Advanced Process Manipulation Here

Then copy the part in bold below into notepad and save it directly to the rootdirectory as vundoh.reg
Set Filetype to "All files" (the file should now be here: C:\vundoh.reg)

REGEDIT4

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify\aptapi]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify\req]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Browser Helper Objects\{44240BB5-BD7D-4D49-A1AA-8AB0F3D3CB44}]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Browser Helper Objects\{8E13DDE1-E013-47ec-9C4C-27C2F78BDD26}]

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{44240BB5-BD7D-4D49-A1AA-8AB0F3D3CB44}]

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{8E13DDE1-E013-47ec-9C4C-27C2F78BDD26}]

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MSEvents.MSEvents.1]

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MSEvents.MSEvents]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX Compatibility\{44240BB5-BD7D-4D49-A1AA-8AB0F3D3CB44}]
"Compatibility Flags"=dword:00000400

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX Compatibility\{8E13DDE1-E013-47ec-9C4C-27C2F78BDD26}]
"Compatibility Flags"=dword:00000400




Now reboot into safe mode.

Restart your computer and as soon as it starts booting up again continuously tap F8. A menu should come up where you will be given the option to enter Safe Mode.
  • Open Process Explorer.[list]
  • Scroll down in the main window and find winlogon.exe
  • Right click on winlogon.exe and select Suspend
  • Leave Process Explorer open.
Now run HijackThis and put checkmarks in front of these lines

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

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {8E13DDE1-E013-47ec-9C4C-27C2F78BDD26} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\req.dll

O20 - Winlogon Notify: aptapi - C:\WINDOWS\msagent\aptapi.dll
O20 - Winlogon Notify: req - C:\WINDOWS\system32\req.dll


Do NOT fix them yet

Now open Advanced Process Manipulation.
  • Scroll down in the main window and find c:\windows\explorer.exe
  • Click on the entry and that will display a list of files in the second window.
  • Scroll down the list in the second window and find C:\WINDOWS\msagent\aptapi.dll
  • Right click on that entry and select Unload DLL
  • You will now lose your Start Bar and Desktop Icons. This is normal.
  • Repeat this part of the procedure for C:\WINDOWS\system32\req.dll
  • Leave Advanced Process Manipulation open
Go back to Process Explorer window.
  • Click File > Run
  • In the run box type regedit.exe /s C:\vundoh.reg
Back in Advanced Process Manipulation.
  • Scroll down in the main window and find c:\windows\system32\winlogon.exe
  • Click on the entry and that will display a list of files in the second window.
  • Scroll down the list in the second window and find c:\windows\inf\cutil.dll
  • Right click on that entry and select Unload DLL
  • You will have to click OK about six times
In HijackThis click Fix checked. You will be prompted you are about to remove a BHO. That's what you want.

Now back in Process Explorer.
  • Find winlogon.exe again.
  • Right click on winlogon.exe and select Resume
  • This should reboot your computer automatically.
After the reboot copy the code below[/b] into notepad and save it as findtheother.bat

echo ** This batch was originally written by OSC **
cd C:\WINDOWS\msagent
if exist C:\contents.txt del C:\contents.txt
echo ************************************>> C:\contents.txt
echo **These are the hidden files found**>> C:\contents.txt
echo ************************************>> C:\contents.txt
dir /a:h >> c:\contents.txt
echo ************************************>> C:\contents.txt
echo **These are the system files found**>> C:\contents.txt
echo ************************************>> C:\contents.txt
dir /a:s >> C:\contents.txt
attrib /d /s -s -r -h -a
start notepad c:\contents.txt
exit


Then doubleclick that file and when it is done it will open a text file showing all hidden and system files in that folder. Post the contents of that file in a reply to this thread along with a new HijackThis log.

Back in Advanced Process Manipulation.
• Scroll down in the main window and find c:\windows\system32\winlogon.exe
• Click on the entry and that will display a list of files in the second window.
• Scroll down the list in the second window and find c:\windows\inf\cutil.dll

I made a mistake because I was trying to tackle two infections at the same time.

We will do them one at a time, that should work much better.

*Click Here to download Killbox by Option^Explicit.
*Extract the program to your desktop and double-click on its folder, then double-click on Killbox.exe to start the program.
*In the killbox program, select the Replace on Reboot option.
*Put a checkmark in the "Use Dummy" boc.
*Select this file as the one to be replaced:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\req.dll
*Click the red-and-white "Delete File" button. Click "Yes" at the Delete on Reboot prompt. Click "No" at the Pending Operations prompt.

While your computer is restarting, tap the F8 key continually until a menu appears. Use your up arrow key to highlight Safe Mode, then hit enter.

In safe mode doubleclick the C:\vundoh.reg we made.

Run HijackThis and check if these lines are gone:

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {8E13DDE1-E013-47ec-9C4C-27C2F78BDD26} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\req.dll

O20 - Winlogon Notify: req - C:\WINDOWS\system32\req.dll

If not, have HijackThis fix them.

Boot back to normal and post a new HijackThis log

Not so fast. One more to go.

But good job sofar. :tazz:

Restart your computer and as soon as it starts booting up again continuously tap F8. A menu should come up where you will be given the option to enter Safe Mode.
Open Process Explorer.
  • Scroll down in the main window and find winlogon.exe
  • Right click on winlogon.exe and select Suspend
  • Leave Process Explorer open.
Now run HijackThis and put checkmarks in front of these two lines

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

O20 - Winlogon Notify: aptapi - C:\WINDOWS\msagent\aptapi.dll


Do NOT fix them yet

Now open Advanced Process Manipulation.
  • Scroll down in the main window and find c:\windows\explorer.exe
  • Click on the entry and that will display a list of files in the second window.
  • Scroll down the list in the second window and find C:\WINDOWS\msagent\aptapi.dll
  • Right click on that entry and select Unload DLL
  • You will now lose your Start Bar and Desktop Icons. This is normal.
  • Leave Advanced Process Manipulation open
Go back to Process Explorer window.
  • Click File > Run
  • In the run box type regedit.exe /s C:\vundoh.reg
Back in Advanced Process Manipulation.
  • Scroll down in the main window and find c:\windows\system32\winlogon.exe
  • Click on the entry and that will display a list of files in the second window.
  • Scroll down the list in the second window and find C:\WINDOWS\msagent\aptapi.dll
  • Right click on that entry and select Unload DLL
  • You will have to click OK about six times
In HijackThis click Fix checked. You will be prompted you are about to remove a BHO. That's what you want.

Now back in Process Explorer.
  • Find winlogon.exe again.
  • Right click on winlogon.exe and select Resume
  • This should reboot your computer automatically.
After the reboot copy the code below into notepad and save it as findtheother.bat

echo ** This batch was originally written by OSC **
cd C:\WINDOWS\msagent
if exist C:\contents.txt del C:\contents.txt
echo ************************************>> C:\contents.txt
echo **These are the hidden files found**>> C:\contents.txt
echo ************************************>> C:\contents.txt
dir /a:h >> c:\contents.txt
echo ************************************>> C:\contents.txt
echo **These are the system files found**>> C:\contents.txt
echo ************************************>> C:\contents.txt
dir /a:s >> C:\contents.txt
attrib /d /s -s -r -h -a
start notepad c:\contents.txt
exit


Then doubleclick that file and when it is done it will open a text file showing all hidden and system files in that folder. Post the contents of that file in a reply to this thread along with a new HijackThis log.

You are running Windows on that computer, right? :tazz:
With explorer not running you won't get much done.

I'll show you what I mean.
