Hello C Smith and Welcome to Geeks To Go

My sincere apologies to you for having to wait so long, but some do get missed we know.

Your HijackThis log is unremarkable with one exception. You have some entries in your HijackThis log which adds your PC to an outside network (along the lines of a P2P Network); you may not be aware of this. This is called “The Bonjour Package” which is being bundled with iTunes.

You may choose if you want me to delete it, or if you wish to download a programme to disable it, or just leave it as it is. I cannot comment on the consequences of leaving it in place or the efficacy of the disabling programme.

This is the link to the disabling programme: http://gizmoproject.com/jasmine/ select TurnOffBonjour.exe

Whilst you ponder that point, would you please continue with this, BSOD permitting.

Download:WinPFind

Right Click the Zip Folder and Select "Extract All"

Don't use it yet!

Restart in Safe Mode

From the WinPFind folder-> Doubleclick WinPFind.exe and Click "Start Scan"

It will scan the entire System, so please be patient!

One you see "Scan Complete"-> a log (WinPFind.txt) will be automatically generated in the WinPFind folder.

Restart normally and post the contents of WinPFind.txt

Finally, could you tell me what word was where the bleep is on this item? E:\[bleep]\winamp\winamp.exe You'll have to space out the letters otherwise it will be bleeped again.

ok, everytime I would try and run WinPFind in Safe Mode, I'd get the blue screen of death so I tried running it in normal mode and this is what I got....also, the E:\[bleep]\winamp\winamp.exe is E:\b u l l s h i t\winamp\winamp.exe
it's just a folder on my E drive that I call b u l l s h i t. thanks!



WARNING: not all files found by this scanner are bad. Consult with a knowledgable person before proceeding.

If you see a message in the titlebar saying "Not responding..." you can ignore it. Windows somethimes displays this message due to the high volume of disk I/O. As long as the hard disk light is flashing, the program is still working properly.

Hello again

Please download:
Killbox by Option^Explicit

Please install Killbox by Option^Explicit.

*Extract the programme to your desktop and double-click on its folder, then double-click on Killbox.exe to start the programme.
*In the Killbox programme, select the Delete on Reboot option.
*Copy the file names below to the clipboard by highlighting them and pressing Control-C:

C:\WINDOWS\mynewimurl.exe
c:\windows\system32\ixrltc.exe
c:\windows\system32\hlsrsbh.exe
c:\windows\system32\hpcpta.exe
c:\windows\system32\fccbeqp.exe
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\FA3QM8X5\delf061225[1].exe


*Return to Killbox, go to the File menu, and choose "Paste from Clipboard".

*Click the red-and-white "Delete File" button. Click "Yes" at the Delete on Reboot prompt. Click "Yes" at the reboot now prompt..

If you receive a message such as: "Component 'MsComCtl.ocx' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid." when trying to run TheKillbox, click download and run missingfilesetup.exe. Then try TheKillbox again.

Please delete your temporary files.

Double Click My Computer (WinXP: Navigate to Start >My Computer)

You will see an icon representing your harddrive (most likely C: Drive) Right Click on the hard drive icon and click Properties at the bottom of the fly out window.

On the very first tab (General) you will see a button labelled "Disk Cleanup"...click that button.

Make sure the following are checked:Downloaded Program Files
Temporary Internet Files and
Recycle Bin

Click OK and Disk Cleanup will delete those files for you.

Next, go to Start>Run>type in %temp% hit Enter and delete the content of all the temp folders shown (only the content, not the folder).

Copy everything inside the quote box below (starting with dir) and paste it into notepad. Go up to "File > Save As" and click the drop-down box to change the "Save As Type" to "All Files". Save it as findfile.bat on your Desktop.

dir C:\WINDOWS\system32\??rvices.exe /a h > files.txt
notepad files.txt


Locate findfile.bat on your Desktop and double-click on it. It will open Notepad with some text in it. Please post the contents of that Notepad here along with a new HiJackThis log.

Reboot normally.

How is it running now?

Hello again

Your HJT log looks good. Would you mind just confirming that the HJT log was created from a scan in normal mode and not safe mode; I just need to be certain.

Now you are about to undertake a task which you must not make a mistake in doing. These files that I had you find: 08/04/2004 03:56 AM 108,032 services.exe and
05/02/2005 12:16 PM 421,888 ??rvices.exe, to a computer are identical since the ? is a wildcard.

You have to make sure you get the right one and delete it. If you get it wrong, you will be into a recovery console job (don't want that I assure you). So I want you to do a search using the Windows search facility, for ??rvices.exe. There should be more than one found. The one I want you to delete is 412KB and created on 05/02/2005 12:16 PM.

When you find it, delete it, reboot normally and post a final? fresh HJT log.

Hello again

Well the fact that it is no longer present indicates that it was being kept alive in tandem with another piece of malware.

Which leaves me with only one further duty................................

Congratulations! your new log is clean. :tazz: Just a little bit more to do to prevent further infection.

Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove bad files that have been backed up by Windows. The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programmes changing them. This is the only way to clean these files: (You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected.)

To reset your restore points, please note that you will need to log into your computer with an account which has full administrator access. You will know if the account has administrator access because you will be able to see the System Restore tab. If the tab is missing, you are logged in under a limited account.

(Windows XP)
1. Turn off System Restore.On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.
2. Reboot.

3. Turn ON System Restore.On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
UN-Check *Turn off System Restore*.
Click Apply, and then click OK.
I recommend going to the following link and update as recommended by Microsoft. This adds more security and extra features including a pop-up blocker for Internet Explorer. Microsoft Update

Now that everything is fixed, I suggest that you consider getting these programmes to help keep the computer clean:

SPYWARE BLASTER - Blocks bad ActiveX items from installing on your computer.
AD-AWARE PERSONAL – A fine free malware detector and removal programme
SPYBOT S&D – Excellent free spyware detector and removal programme
GOOGLE TOOLBAR - Blocks many unwanted pop-ups in Internet Explorer.
FIREFOX - Safer alternative to the Internet Explorer web browser.
AVG ANTIVIRUS FREE EDITION - Free antivirus programme if you currently are not using one.
ZONEALARM - Free firewall programme if you currently are not using one (Windows XP has a built-in firewall).

Remember to update these frequently.

Please note that whilst there is nothing wrong in having more than one antispyware programmes for “on demand” scanning, having two or more antivirus systems is not recommended as they may well interfere with each other.

You may also want to read "How did I get infected in the first place" to learn how to better secure your computer.

Be sure to keep your Windows, antispyware and antivirus updated. :)

If you are still having problems, can I suggest that you try this remedy first of all, if you then still have further problems afterwards then I think realistically you have to suspect software and/or hardware.

Run System File Checker, to make sure all of your protected files are not corrupt. The scan will automatically replace any corrupt files that it finds.

Click Start
Select Run
At the prompt type sfc /scannow Please note that there is a single space between sfc and /scannow.

Typing this will start the programme, and a box should appear telling you how much longer the process should take.

Sometimes the scan will prompt you for your Windows XP disc upon starting the scan. if this happens please make sure that you can view protected files:My Computer
Tools
Folder Options
View
"Uncheck" Hide protected operating system files.
Then rerun the scan.

Once the scan is complete:

Check your Windows Updates! After using the File Protection Service, you might need to reapply some updates.

Also, please rehide the protected files:My Computer
Tools
Folder Options
View
"Check" Hide protected operating system files.
