I have some kind of trojan (possibly Haxdoor-K) which I cannot remove. I know the offending files, and have removed them with killbox.

I've removed vtd_16.exe which is the process in task manager and afterwards removed the following files which it has dropped:

cm.dll
draw32.dll
hm.sys
memlow.sys
p2.ini
vdnt32.sys
wd.sys
i.a3d
klogini.dll

I have also removed the following registry entries:

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify\Draw32
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\memlow
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\vdnt32

Yet after all this, it still reappears (after a couple of login's, it usually takes about a day)
I'll post a HiJack this log after, any advice would be welcomed.

C:\WINDOWS\system32\NOTEPAD.EXE

Did you have notepad open? It's an often infected file.

Please run a free online virus scan here (tick the "Auto Clean" checkbox):
http://housecall.antivirus.com/

And a free trojan scan here:
http://www.moosoft.com/

Reboot your PC.

Let us know the results. <_<

I'm fairly sure I had notepad open at the time. I've tried the same approach again, and am still having the same problem. vtd_16.exe keeps appearing again.
The main problem with this process is that it keeps shutting down my computer (ie. sends it to the blue screen of death), stating vdnt32.sys as the problem.

I've tried various AV, trojan and other removal tools, but to no avail.

Here is the information gathered by your script. Does it make sense?
Please note I am trunnig a Dutch version of XP. The words waar en onwaar mean true and false.



The script did not recognize the services listed below.
This does not mean that they are a problem.

Looks like it is GONE!

1st: I downloaded GIANT Anti Spyware from http://www.spynet.co...-Haxdoor.k.aspx.
2nd: I updated the virus definitions.
3th: I removed all the files and registry entries as stated in robertd_34's first post on this subject.
4th: I restarted the systemin safe mode (Giant also crashes when running in normal mode)
5th: I ran GIANT Anti Spyware, and it found and removed the trojans.
6th: I repeated 3th.
7th: I rebooted the system, and al obnoxious processes were no longer there! Only the registry again contained the Draw32 key, which I removed.
