The system seems to be running okay. I am still coming up with one trojan whenever I run a scan. Any idea how to get rid of that Trojan.Qhost.qr?

Hello,

Because Cretemonster is in hospital unfortunately he can't reply.
So I'll take a look. Can you please post a new hijackthislog as a final checkup? :tazz:

How are things running now?

I'm sorry to hear about Cretemonster. I appreciate any help you can give me. Everything seems to be working okay except for that Qhost Trojan.

Hello, well something is showing here that is normally hidden when infected, so that is a good sign. C:\WINDOWS\system32\hclean32.exe
Can you search for above file and delete it if still present?

* Start HijackThis, close all open windows leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following:

O1 - Hosts: localhost 127.0.0.1
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {FDD3B846-8D59-4ffb-8758-209B6AD74ACC} - (no file)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [hclean32.exe] C:\WINDOWS\system32\hclean32.exe
O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\OSA.EXE
O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel present
O16 - DPF: {CAFEEFAC-0013-0001-0002-ABCDEFFEDCBA} (Java Runtime Environment 1.3.1_02) - https://mytime.cenda..._3_1_02-win.exe


* Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.

REBOOT!!

* Download: Hoster
Unzip hoster to an own folder, eg C:\Hoster
Start Hoster.exe, click 'Restore Original Hosts' and click OK.

I also want to check something else..

Download Silent Runners
Unzip it to a permanent folder.
Start SilentRunners.vbs
When your antivirus is giving an alert, do not block this. Allow the script.
Copy and paste the content of the txtfile you get afterwards in your next reply together with a new hijackthislog.

Can you also give me more info about next?

Everything seems to be working okay except for that Qhost Trojan

Is McAfee alerting you? What alert do you exactly get? Or is it an error you receive?

The QHost Trojan is being found whenever I scan with Ewido. I haven't scanned with McAfee and McAfee is not detecting it on its own. Ewido is cleaning the file every time it scans, but it seems to be located in the restore and returns everytime I reboot.

The logs look clean though..

but it seems to be located in the restore and returns everytime I reboot.


You mean in the system restore points? Let's flush them..
Disable your systemrestore.(note: this will delete all your system restore points and malware that were present in it).
How to disable system restore in XP
Reboot.. and after rebooting, enable it again, so a new systemrestorepoint will be made. A clean one now! :tazz:

Let me know. ;)

Good.

To keep this clean in the future, I would suggest the following things:

Install Spywareblaster
SpywareBlaster doesn`t scan and clean for so-called spyware, but prevents it from being installed in the first place. It blocks the popular spyware ActiveX controls, and also prevents the installation of any of them via a webpage.

Avoid illegal sites, because that's where most malware is present.

Let your antispywarescanner(s) scan frequently and don't forget to update before.

And I do suggest you perform an online virusscan once in a while. (Housecall and/or Bitdefender). Because what one virusscanner can't find another one maybe can.
Also make sure that your virusscanner, the one that is installed on your system is always up to date!

Make sure your windows has the latest updates: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/

If you are having XP SP2, read here how to configure Security Features for Internet Explorer:
http://www.microsoft...xp/iesecxp.mspx

More info on how to prevent malware you can also find here (By Tony Klein)

Happy surfing again! :tazz:
