This effected my overall internet speed, i have not yet updated SP2 since the bandwidth is constantly used up windowsupdate cannot really download anything to my computer.

Hi PimpY,

Could you surf to this site:
http://www.kaspersky.com/scanforvirus

and have these files checked:
C:\WINDOWS\System32\ssmr.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\cosine.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\mssupdate.exe

Let me know the results, but they all look like trojans to me.

Regards,

Pieter

Assuming I am right. :tazz:
Check the items listed below in HijackThis, close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [WinSecured32] ssmr.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Windows ControlAd] C:\Program Files\Windows ControlAd\WinCtlAd.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MSConfig] C:\WINDOWS\PCHealth\HelpCtr\Binaries\MSConfig.exe /auto
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [cosine] cosine.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Start Uppings] mssupdate.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [Start Uppings] mssupdate.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [WinSecured32] ssmr.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [cosine] cosine.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [cosine] cosine.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Start Uppings] mssupdate.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\RunServices: [Start Uppings] mssupdate.exe

Reboot after doing so, preferably Reboot into safe mode
and delete:
C:\Program Files\Windows ControlAd <= entire folder

We will postpone the rest of the deleting until we know what it is.
But doing this should bring you back to speed.

Pieter

Good job sofar. :tazz:

This one will have to be don the other way round.

Reboot into safe mode and delete:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\cosine.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\mssupdate.exe

Then run HijackThis and check the items listed below in HijackThis, close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [cosine] cosine.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Start Uppings] mssupdate.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [cosine] cosine.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [Start Uppings] mssupdate.exe

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [cosine] cosine.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Start Uppings] mssupdate.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\RunServices: [Start Uppings] mssupdate.exe

Then boot normally and let us know how it goes.

Pieter

If you can not find them they may be a hidden file(s).
To "unhide" hidden files and folders:
Launch My Computer from the Desktop Icon.
Select View, Details.
Select the Folders button.
Select Tools, Folder Options. Then select the View Tab. Select the Show hidden files and folders radio button is selected
and that the Hide file extensions for known file types check box is unchecked. Once this is done, select Apply and then
Like Current Folder (located near the top of the Folder Options box). Then select OK.

The ones in the prefetch folder can go to, but they are harmless by themselves.

Pieter

No need to panic. :tazz:

Download Killbox from here:
http://www.geekstogo...ction=show&id=4

Run killbox and paste each of these lines into the box, select delete on reboot then press the red X button, when it says reboot now, say no and continue to paste the lines into the box in turn and follow the above procedure every time, after the last line has been pasted let it reboot.
C:\WINDOWS\System32\ssmr.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\cosine.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\mssupdate.exe

After the reboot post a new HijackThis log.

Yay, they are no longer running. :tazz:

Clean out the leftovers and you should be roaring to go.

Check the following items in HijackThis.
Close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [cosine] cosine.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Start Uppings] mssupdate.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [cosine] cosine.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [Start Uppings] mssupdate.exe

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [cosine] cosine.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Start Uppings] mssupdate.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\RunServices: [Start Uppings] mssupdate.exe

Then reboot. This time they should stay away.

Regards,

Pieter
