Hi guys,
I got this same infection from Spy Sheriff. I was able to regain control over my Task Manager with an enable script and tried to clean this with Hijackthis, Norton SystemWorks and Ad-aware.
I got pretty far but there are still 4 files I could not get rid off. I read the 2 threads here and unfortunately I am not at home to post a Hijackthis log.
The 4 file names though that Norton tells me it could not clean up are the following:
-abirvalg32.dll
-vxh8jkdg2.exe
-vxh8jkdg6.exe
-vxh8jkdg7.exe

Also, as soon as I plug the net cable it triggers an absurd number of emails intents so it was pretty hard to delete the 14 virus files I deleted so far.
Can you still help me w/out the Hijack log or is it a waste of your time?
Let me know please.
Thanks anyway! this site rocks.
:tazz:

Download smitRem.exe and save the file to your desktop.
Double click on the file to 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.
Open the smitRem folder, then double click the RunThis.bat file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on screen.
Wait for the tool to complete and disk cleanup to finish.

The tool will create a log named smitfiles.txt in the root of your drive, eg; Local Disk C: or partition where your operating system is installed. Please post that log along with all others requested in your next reply.


Open Ad-aware and do a full scan. Remove all it finds.


Run Ewido:
  • Click on scanner
  • Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
  • NOTE: During some scans with ewido it is finding cases of false positives.
  • You will need to step through the process of cleaning files one-by-one.
  • If ewido detects a file you KNOW to be legitimate, select none as the action.
  • DO NOT select "Perform action on all infections"
  • If you are unsure of any entry found select none for now.
  • When the scan is finished, click the Save report button at the bottom of the screen.
  • Save the report to your desktop
Close Ewido

Next go to Control Panel click Display > Desktop > Customize Desktop > Web > Uncheck "Security Info" if present.

Reboot back into Windows and click the Panda ActiveScan shortcut, then do a full system scan.
Save the scan log and post it along with a HijackThis Log, the contents of the smitfiles.txt (C:\smitfiles.txt) log and the Ewido Log by using Add Reply.
Let us know if any problems persist.

Things worked out all right. Here is what I did:
- Loaded Safe Mode
-Run Smitrem and Host File Reader to recompose the host service
- Rebooted again to SM
- Run Clean Up
-Rebooted to Safe mode
-Run Ewido, cleaned everything it told me to
- Run ad-aware
- Cleaned more files
- Rebooted in SM and run Norton
- Clean thos trojans
- Finally run a program called Trojan Remover, it is a Dos-base exe. Took hours but found a few more things.
Rebooted into normal mode and looking good.
Thanks for the help guys.
