Were you able to delete that file?

If not we can use a program called Killbox that will delete it.

But, AVG would still definitely need to be run, because that is one nasty worm and there are more files on your system from it.

Bananafanafo,
Yes, I was able to remove Userconfig9x.dll, although I expected Windows to recreate a new uninfected one. Currently there is no C:\Windows\Userconfig9x.dll file.
I ran AVG and it found the same 89 files I thought I'd already deleted, this time in a folder I hadn't uncovered. They have all been quantantined.
Here is the latest Hijack log:

That's a good thing! The userconfig9x.dll is never a good file - you don't want it on your computer. This file was not on your system until the worm put it there.

I ran AVG and it found the same 89 files I thought I'd already deleted, this time in a folder I hadn't uncovered. They have all been quantantined.

It found more than I expected!

I need you to do this as well - you should be able to run it OK since we've gotten rid of a lot of the infection:

ActiveScan

Copy the results of the ActiveScan and paste them.

Bananafanafo,
I'll run the active scan, but first want to tell you I'm having MAJOR problems! This is the 1st I've been able to get back in Windows normal mode, to tell you my problems.
At power up, PC runs thru POST, the Windows splash screen appears, AVG boot scanner runs [I've tried disabling boot scan, but couldn't], then there is a quick c prompt, the Windows splash screen reappears, then Symantec's error msg displays, stating hit any key to continue. Somethings the key works and I can load up windows in Safe mode, but most times the PC freezes; there is a lot of disk accessing noise (usually read,write, read, write, then a VERY long pause (over 5 minutes). The keyboard and mouse are unresponsive and the hard disc goes silent, although it does respond when I insert a CD (reads the CD) but the screen remains with the symantec error msg. :tazz: Other times I get a Windows Protection error, stating I need to restart the PC. Press any key (but it didn't wait while I logged the error, and restarted, running Scandisk because "I" hadn't shutdown properly. [unable to insert ranting emticon here] grrr...
I have removed some of the software I installed (Ad-Aware, XoftSpy v4.15) and had the same problems. Then I ran CleanUp! v4, with no success. finally I removed AVG and was able to get in Windows normal mode to update you.
I have StartDreck and HijackThis log files from just before and just after removing AVG, if you want to see them.
As I first stated I will run the Active Scan you suggested and let you know what happens!

;)

What kind of error messages from Symantec? Did you remove it through Add/Remove programs before you deleted those folders?

I can't get Panda's Active Scan to run. The javascript won't open. I had this problem before posting to GTG also; both on this PC and 'my own Win 98 PC'.
I uninstalled Norton Anti-Virus, because it never would load without errors. I tried repairing, and removing from the setup disk. I then tried System Works, but again it won't install because "previous Symantic software is already installed". I uninstalled McAfee and then uninstalled Symantic's Live Update (via Control Panel's Add/Remove folder), then manually removed all the symantic folders that remained. However the error msg remains;


"Cannot find a device file that may be needed to run Windows or a Windows application.
the Windows registry or SYSTEM.INI files refers to this device file, but the device no longer exists.
If you deleted this file on purpose, try uninstalling the associated application using its uninstall or setup program.
If you still want to use the application associated with this device file, try reinstalling that application to replace
C:\PROGRA~1\SYMANTEC\SYMEVNT.386"

This may work on a 98 but not 100% sure... Go to Start > Run - type:

system.ini

Click OK.

It should produce a log - if it does please copy everything in the notepad and paste it here.

This may fix the javascript problem:

Do you know how to navigate in the registry?

BTW, I had a very similar problem with my ME system except it was a firewall causing the problem. I couldn't get into anything but Safe Mode, so I do know how to fix it :tazz:

Ok, I need you to do this:

Copy everything in the code box below (starting with REGEDIT4) and paste it into notepad. Go up to "File > Save As", then click the drop-down box to change the "Save As Type" to "All Files". Save it as fixse.reg on your desktop.

REGEDIT4

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\New Windows]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\New Windows]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\SearchAssistant Uninstall]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServicesOnce] 

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServicesOnce]
Double-click fixse.reg on your desktop and when asked if you want to merge with the registry click YES.

Then do this for me:

Go to Start > Run - copy the below line and paste it into the box:

regedit /e c:\symevent.txt "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD\SymEvnt"

Click OK. Then navigate to C:\symevent.txt open it and copy everything inside and paste it here. Let me know if you don't find that .txt file because it means that registry key doesn't exist and we will have to look elsewhere.

Bananafanafo,
I haven't abandoned you, PandaScan is still running on this slow 26K connection. I'll get to the registry as soon as it's done. :tazz:
