ok ok....geekstogo experts always say to try and research the problem and fix it yourself before getting on here and posting a hijackthis logfile..

..well ive done that, but i dunno if i did any good or not so here i am. My problem is the simple virus called hidrag.A...simular to the jeefo virus from what ive read. I have searched through these forums and followed directions given in two different threads.....one in topic 19786 and another in topic 22145 and im not sure if i have stopped the spread of the virus or not.

I guess ive had the virus for a little while, (my computer was functioning fine), but after loading the Free AVG antivirus yesterday it has detected many hidrag virus' throughout my .exe files, and it seems like each time AVG detects a new location of the hidrag virus, the file becomes unusable. (for example, making RealPlayer unusable b/c now it will not execute the program). How come all these files worked just fine before AVG found that they were infected? Does AVG mark these files as unusable after it finds that they are infected???? AVG cannot heal, nor can it delete the files.

here is my hijackthis logfile...

After looking through this logfile myself, i have noticed there is a file there that i have previously deleted using hijackthis....but its back again...and that is the O23 - Service: Power Manager (PowerManager) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\svchost.exe (file missing)

I dont know why it is back...i have deleted the svchost.exe from the Windows file, so it shouldnt be spreading anymore right? (or am i wrong?) any help would be appreciated.

and one last thing...for my files that are infected with the virus (like the realplayer exe application file) can they be fixed....or do they have to be deleted and reloaded?

thanx very much.

Welcome to Geeks to Go!

Unfortunately, Hidrag is no where near a "simple" virus. It infects ALL execute files on your system (but that's not the only files).

I highly recommend trying another anti-virus program to see if it's able to clean your files.

Go here: http://www.kaspersky.../us/trials?Home click on "Kaspersky Anti-Virus Personal 5.0" (30 day full version trial), download the program and run it. Make sure when it's finds these files that it cleans them and not deletes them.

After it's done, try running this online virus scan:
ActiveScan

After you download and install Kaspersky and update definitions, etc. I recommend rebooting into Safe Mode and open kaspersky - do NOT run any other programs, in fact, I recommend ending the explorer.exe process after you open Kaspersky.

I need to find out if you have the full version XP CD before instructing anything else. Please do not run Kaspersky until we delete the service that regenerates otherwise it will be a complete waste of time.

Well i think i have the ful version..my computer came with windows XP Profesisonal installed, and i have the Microsoft XP Office 2002 version CD here with me, so im guessing thats the CD you are talking about.

At first when i downloaded Kaspersky i ran it in normal mode and i didnt think it was going to help cause it wasnt finding any hidrag viruses...but after setting it to find the extended virus definitions, and then booting into safe mode and running it..it has found tons of them...and so far, as well as i can see, it has disinfected and restored each problem to their clean original state (Thank God!....oh..and thank YOU for this recommendation).

But your are right, i want to make sure it dosent just start regenerating it self again. Here is what i have done so far. I have deleted the svchost.exe file from the WINDOWS folder. Also, i have used the Run feature to get into services.msc, and went to the Power Manager and set the Startup Type to disabled (i did this b/c i read that this was necissary in some other posts). Also, i have deleted the line O23 - Service: Power Manager (PowerManager) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\svchost.exe (file missing) useing HiJackThis.

Is there something here i should change...or anything else u recomment to kill this thing for good?

If your system came with XP installed then it is not the full version disk, it's just a recovery disk. Do you know of anyone who has the full version disk? This is only in the event we need it to replace system files.

There are a couple of other things we have to do to that service. You've already stopped it and disabled it which is good, now we must delete it. Fixing it in HiJackThis does not delete the service.

That service will regenerate the svchost.exe file, so you need to make absolutely sure that file is no longer in the windows folder! Check again after following the instructions below.

Run HiJackThis. Click on "None of the above, just start the program". Now, click on the "Config" button (bottom right), then click on "Misc Tools", then click on "Delete an NT Service" a window will pop up. Enter the below item into that field (copy and paste):

PowerManager

Click ok.

It should pull up information about the service, when it asks if you want to reboot now click YES.

After reboot, make sure the service is no longer in services.msc, then please do this:

Click Start
Right Click My Computer and go to properties
Click Hardware
Click Device Manager
Go up to View - Click Show All Hidden Devices
Click the plus next to Non-Plug and Play Drivers

Scroll that list and look for "PowerManager"

If located right-click and choose Uninstall

Let me know how all of this goes!

After this you need to run that online virus scan to see how well Kaspersky did on disinfecting files - then we need to finish cleaning your log!

ActiveScan

Copy the results of the ActiveScan and paste them here along with a new HiJackThis log.

Kapersky seems to be a great antivirus, so after the freetrail is up, i might consider purchasing the product if it isnt too expensive. How would you compare Kapersky to Norton Antivirus? I had that before, and it seemed to do a fine job as well.

A couple times today, Kapersky actually displayed to me a warning message saying my computer was beint attacked over the internet by some user (cant remember the name) and it gave their IP address.....can i use the IP address to take some kind of action against these "attackers"?

Well anyways, thanks very much for the help, it is very appriciated, and already i have recommended Geeks To Go to others for help.

Your ActiveScan log is very reassuring! :tazz:

Since you've got Kaspersky installed right now, you need to uninstall AVG, because they will interfere with one another.

Have you noticed any of your programs not working? For instance, you mentioned RealPlayer earlier...is it working OK?

This is just my opinion, but Kaspersky is a much better anti-virus program. Kaspersky is one of the best anti-virus programs available. This is why I suggested the Kaspersky trial rather than anything else ;) I, personally, do not like Norton at all, it does an OK job, I guess, but not even close to Kaspersky.

It's unlikely that you could do very much. But, you can go to http://www.dnsstuff.com to look up the IP address to see where it goes and take it from there - although you might come up empty-handed.

Well anyways, thanks very much for the help, it is very appriciated, and already i have recommended Geeks To Go to others for help.

You're very welcome! I'm happy to help ;)

You must remember to uninstall AVG because 2 anti-virus programs will make your system more vulnerable rather than protect it more.

I am so glad your programs are working! :tazz:

Those files would not be deleted by HiJackThis. They were however deleted by some program (AV or anti-spyware program). I figured they wouldn't be there, but had to make sure! Your log looks great, with one item I need to ask you about though... Do you recognize this entry?

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyServer = http=192.168.0.254:85

Here is information about that IP:
http://www.dnsstuff....p=192.168.0.254

Do you know of any particular reason that proxy would be there? It was in your first log, but not in your second then it was back in the third log. If you do not recognize it or do not know why that proxy would be there, then place a check next to this entry and click FIX CHECKED:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyServer = http=192.168.0.254:85

If for any reason you lose Internet Access after fixing the entry (although you should not). Open HiJackThis. Click "View list of Backups". Locate just this item on the list:
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyServer = http=192.168.0.254:85
Put a check next to it and click Restore, then reboot your computer.

Yes i will remember to uninstall the AVG antivirus, i realize that 1 is better than 2 when it comes to antiviruses.

As far as the logfile entry you asked me about goes....i really have no idea what it is. At first i thought it could have something to do with my dial up internet access provider, but that IP address links to California...and im from Missouri, so thats not it. Only other thing i can think of, is maybe it haveing to do with online gaming. My little bro played an online game (Call of Duty) using my computer today before i got home and started finishing the rest of your instructions.

I have scanned my PC twice using HijackThis just now and that log does not show up. so i guess i will just keep an eye out for it.

My computer was once again "attacked" earlier tonight, by the same name as the other times, but i cant remember if it it was the same IP address, this next time i will make note of it. Does this happen that often? lol

anyways, if there is nothing further, i think I should be good to go. :tazz: If you say so that is. lol Thanx again

If you're being attacked, I strongly recommend downloading a firewall! The Windows Firewall is not sufficient. You will need to disable the Windows firewall if you choose to use one of these:

Three good free versions are Sygate, Kerio, and ZoneAlarm.

Then I would like you to run one more program for me - it is not an anti-virus program so it will not interfere with KAV:

Please download Ewido Security Suite
  • Install ewido security suite
  • Launch ewido, there should be a big E icon on your desktop, double-click it.
  • The program will prompt you to update click the OK button
  • The program will now go to the main screen
You will need to update ewido to the latest definition files.
  • On the left hand side of the main screen click update
  • Click on Start
The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.

Once the updates are installed do the following:
  • Reboot into Safe Mode, you can do this by restarting your computer, then contiunally tapping F8 until a menu appears. Use your up arrow key to highlight Safe Mode, then hit enter.
  • Now open Ewido Security Suite.
  • Click on scanner
  • Click Complete System Scan
  • Let the program scan the machine
While the scan is in progress you will be prompted to clean the first infected file it finds. Choose "remove", then put a check next to "Perform action on all infections" in the left corner of the box so you don't have to sit and watch Ewido the whole time. Click OK.

Once the scan has completed, there will be a button located on the bottom of the screen named Save report
  • Click Save report
  • Save the report to your desktop
  • Exit Ewido
Reboot into normal mode.

I need you to post the log from Ewido and a new HiJackThis log.
