Hello,

I have been searching throughout the forums, but I didn't come across this problem! Maybe I caused it partly myself.

I had a virus that created a guard.tmp file. I solved that eventually using one of the forums of this website using a boxkill.exe utility, and I removed three .dll files and guard.tmp. I did restart the computer a few times before that though. That problem is solved now bcs rundll32 doesn't run frequently anymore.

The new problem has the following signs:

- process imapi.exe runs at startup
- taskbar is frozen upon boot including start button and stuff in it. it does work when i stop and restart explorer.exe, but again freezes when imapi.exe runs again
- i cannot stop any of the processes through taskmanager, only the programs that i start myself
- the recycle bin doesn't work: files are directly deleted!
- internet became dead after one of the reboots: no internet

I did reinstall windows (a full "fix installation" feature) before i cleaned the guard.tmp once. That's what made me think that the new problem couldn't be caused bcs of some files i deleted on my own. I had deleted some files from the system32 folder and took some stuff from the registry!

Below this message is my HIJACKTHIS report.

I cannot move anything big from this computer to the other (no USB or CD writer)! I just realised i can go to schoool and bring some big files through USB. Anyhow, I will be very grateful if anyone can help me with this mess!! Please Help!! Thank you!

Regards,
Indeeed

Hi indeeed

We can definitely help you, but first you need to help us. The first step in this process is to apply Service Pack 1a for Windows XP. Without this update, you're wide open to re-infection, and we're both just wasting our time.
Click here: http://www.microsoft...p1/default.mspx
Apply the update, reboot, and post a fresh Hijack This log.

Some hijacks interfere with the installation of Service Pack 2, so we'll hold of for now. When we're finished cleaning your computer we highly recommend installing SP2. Click here: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/.
--or--
It's a very large download, so if you're on dial-up, order a free CD here:

Hello! My infected computer has no internet though. Is there a way I can download the file and then install it (the service pack)?
