Got infected using Limewire and now my system is in disarray. The problems I am having include limewire being launch without my prompt, ctrl-alt del not working, pop-ups and programs like 180search and bullseye being install at startup. I have checked many of the other posts and have done the following using all these products latest updates -- Ran adaware, killbox and ewido to no success. The symptoms go away when I run these programs, but when I reboot all the problems reoccur.

I would appreciate any help I can get fixing this problem. I'll be happy to follow any of you experts step-by-step instructions. Thanks. Here is my hijackthis log upon a reboot:

Hi modfather,

Copy the code below into notepad and save it as lookup.bat
Set Filetype to "All files"
dir %Systemdrive%\scvhost.* /a h /s > files.txt
start notepad files.txt

Start the file by doubleclicking lookup.bat
That will open a file called files.txt. Post the content of that file.

Thanks for your quick reply. I forgot to mention when I first posted that when I ran adaware before I contacted you, I noticed a large amount of zip files in a directory C:/settings and documents/xx/complete. When I looked for this directory, even unhiding files and folders, that it did not show up in windows explorer. I thought I'd FYI you in case this helps.

Anyway, on to your instructions. I followed them and this is what came up:

Volume in drive C has no label.
Volume Serial Number is 4249-0DFD

Directory of C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32

08/04/2004 12:00 PM 201,728 scvhost.exe
1 File(s) 201,728 bytes

Directory of C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch

09/22/2005 10:13 PM 7,038 SCVHOST.EXE-2C8D7CBA.pf
1 File(s) 7,038 bytes

I also noticed an msdos screen that popped up for a second after I ran lookup.bat, but all I saw quickly was something like the file cmd.com.

I look forward to your next post.

Excellent. :tazz:

I am working on a automated fix for this trojan.
All I need to see if it actually works is a copy of your C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\scvhost.exe

Can you please surf to http://www.thespykil...x.php?topic=5.0
Follow the instructions there to upload the file.

Once you succeeded in doing that and please only afterwards, because my script will delete the file.

Download and unzip BFUzip from http://computercops..../Merijn/bfu.zip
Run the program and click the Web button as shown here:

Use this URL to copy into the address bar of the Download script window:

Execute the script by clicking the Execute button.

If you have any questions about the use of BFU please read here:

Thanks for efforts and time your however, my system was really going into a tailspin since the last time I responded (reboooting on its own), so since I just recently migrated to this computer and I had data backups just a few days old, I decided to reformat and reinstall. Thanks for you time and I'm sure I'll definitely come back to GTG when something else invades my machine. Keep up the good work.

I'm sorry to hear that and I hope I had nothing to do with it.

But great to hear that you had recent backups. :tazz:
