Ok Yumil this is our next step.

Download APT
Open apt and search in the window for the bkcnuqs.exe .
Open your C:\Windows\system32 folder and search for bkcnuqs.exe
Don't delete it yet, just leave the system32 folder open so you can see the bad file.
In APT again, Select bkcnuqs.exe and Click Kill3

Then immediately delete bkcnuqs.exe from your system32 folder.

Run HiJackThis. Place a check next to this item and click FIX CHECKED:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [usluvp] C:\WINDOWS\system32\bkcnuqs.exe r

Rescan with HiJackThis and post the new log.

Hi Yumil :tazz:

There's one entry in here that i have wanted to dump right away, that i never got to, lets do it now.

Click on Start, then on Run and type this in the box :

services.msc

and hit "Enter". Scroll down the list until you find this Service :

System Startup Service

When you find it, double-click on it. In the next window that opens, click the Stop button, then change the Startup Type to Disabled. Now hit Apply and then Ok and close any open windows.

When you are there please run that nail fix application one more time and a new ewido log in safe then boot back to normal and show me a new log please. :)

John I'm really sorry I took so long to get to run the scanner...I've been too busy with work and my mother has needed the computer a lot for work. (which she says it's running much better :tazz: )

So I finally ran Ewido again...I also ran HijackThis again and put it's log below Ewido's.

Hi Yumil :)

Good job, were almost there its amazing what one can accomplish once they find the real reason behind the infection. :tazz:

Ok back into hijack this we go, press scan only and place a check next to these.

O2 - BHO: Band Class - {00F1D395-4744-40f0-A611-980F61AE2C59} - C:\WINDOWS\dsr.dll (file missing
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Dinst] C:\WINDOWS\dinst.exe


Close all browsers and click fix on hijack this.

Find your way to these files and delete if found.

C:\WINDOWS\dsr.dll<----This file
C:\WINDOWS\dinst.exe<---This file

Well Yumil i have been waiting to say this for awhile, this log is clean finally congrats!!!!! :tazz:

Since your issues have been addressed and you are ready to travel the net again, I will just give you a few ideas on how to stay safe out there. Best of all these programs are all readily available on the net for free :)

To reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster and SpyWareGuard.

SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard are by JavaCool and both are free programs. SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed and consumes no system resources. SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.

More info and download is available at:

Spyware Blaster Spyware Guard

Might I suggest the following Free Spyware programs for added security, you can download them at the following links. These programs work great for detection:

Ad-aware SE--Adaware Tutorial

Spybot S&D--Spybot Tutorial

Antiviruses play an important role in keeping your computer safe and worry free while using the net. *NOTE* Only one antivirus must be allowed to run on your computer, as having two or more running can and will cause conflicts.

AVG Avast

Firewalls are also a must in any good prevention :

Zone Alarm Sygate Kerio

There are different browsers available on the net, other than Internet Explorer, we believe!! these are better for security purposes :

Firefox Opera

You must stay on top of your updates at all times, for the above mentioned applications.

It is vitally important to stay on top of your critical updates provided by microsoft.

This can be accessed by going to Windows Updates and following the prompts.

To add to the performance of your computer, i suggest a weekly maintenance program. Run this tool. Ccleaner

Lastly a second opinion on the Antivirus that you have chosen. I suggest running these online virus scans periodically, just to make sure that the av is doing a proper job, of keeping you safe :

Rav Online Scan Housecall Online Scan Panda Activescan

Housecall Java Online Scan<---For those who use Firefox

And finally a little Posted Image How did I get infected in the first place ? (by Mr. Tony Klein and dvk01)

Good luck and safe surfing :)

Oh yeah i forgot about that. :tazz:

To restore this and set it back to XP-theme, rightclick on your desktop > properties > tab Appearances and choose Windows XP style again under windows and buttons.
Click apply and OK

Try this let me know how it goes. :)

Hi Yumil :tazz:

Let's try this.

Click HERE to download Luna.

Unzip it to your desktop. Then using windows explorer MOVE the luna.msstyles to this folder:

C:\WINDOWS\Resources\Themes\Luna

Don't move it to anywhere other than that folder! *NOTE* luna.msstyles may still be there, but it needs to be replaced with this one.

When you have moved it there, rightclick on your desktop > properties and look to see if Windows XPstyle is now present. Choose apply and OK.

If not, reboot then try to select Windows XPstyle.

Well thank you Yumil :tazz:

It takes a collabrative effort to get these things done, right from the tool makers, to the helpers, right on down to the administration people. It takes a group effort to get even the smallet and simplest problems to look easy, on a large helper board like this.

With that being said your very welcome and drop by anytime.
