Bloodhound.w32.ep problem + IE not working [RESOLVED]

My computer was infected with a virus: bloodhound.wp32.ep

1- My desktop wallpaper disappeared. Instead it's a blue background with a message that says

"Security Warning
A fatal error in IE has occured at 0028:c0011E36 in VXD VMM(01) + 00010E36. Error was caused by Trojan-Spy.HTML.Smitfraud.c

* System can not function in normal mode.
Please check you security settings

* Scan your PC with any avaliable antivirus/spyware remover to fix the problem"

NOTE: I noticed this message contains some typos so I think it's generated by the virus

2- There is an error window that constantly pops up (has a red circle with a white X in it):

the top blue bar of the window says "combop.exe - Bad Image" and inside the actual window is written "The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\System32\ is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette."

I have run Norton Anti Virus and it discovered the file WININET.DLL was infected, but was unable to either repair or delete it. I have run AVG 7.0 with no results.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm sorry to bump up but there have been developments. My start toolbar and the start menu are no longer available and I am unable to run any of the programs like CWshredder and others. I am afraid this virus is slowly eating my computer. Please help ASAP.

Hi Souss,


We are sorry to have missed your log due to heavy traffic.

I will help you clean your PC :tazz:


Please print out these instructions or copy them into a text file on your Desktop for easy access.

Yes I still have the blue background that says the following:

"Security Warning
A fatal error in IE has occured at 0028:c0011E36 in VXD VMM(01) + 00010E36. Error was caused by Trojan-Spy.HTML.Smitfraud.c

* System can not function in normal mode.
Please check you security settings

* Scan your PC with any avaliable antivirus/spyware remover to fix the problem"


The error message with "bloodhound.w32.ep" is not popping up anymore though. Maybe this virus was cleaned out and I have other things now?

Lets try this. If you have any problems at any stage, make a note of it and let me know about it after completing the entire fix.


Download smitRem.zip and save the file to your desktop.
Right click on the file and extract it to it's own folder on the desktop.

Place a shortcut to Panda ActiveScan on your desktop.

Please download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite here:
http://www.ewido.net/en/download/

Please read Ewido Setup Instructions
Install it, and update the definitions to the newest files. Do NOT run a scan yet.

If you have not already installed Ad-Aware SE 1.06, follow these download and setup instructions, otherwise, check for updates:
Ad-Aware SE Setup
Don't run it yet!

Next, please reboot your computer in SafeMode by doing the following:
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.
Now scan with HJT and place a checkmark next to each of the following items:

I downloaded the file, but when came the time to extract it I got the following message:

Error(0): This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem. (“C:\PROGRA~1\WINZIP\winzip32.exe” -%-* /noui /extractm /@ “C:\Documents and Settings\Souss\Desktop\smitRem” “C:\DOCUME~1\Souss\LOCALS~1\Temp\wzs3.tmp”)

Should I go ahead and run hijack this in safe mode anyway?
