Hello Swandog. I've just mailed that file. It will be coming under an email account of prairiecat_24. I'll keep checking back here at the board until I can do something further for you guys. Thanks to both of you for the help :tazz:

Thank you for the log; it was very edifying. I have no idea what went wrong, but let's give this a try.

Please run Notepad and copy the following text into a new file:

@ECHO OFF
pv -f -k Explorer.exe
pv -f -k rundll32.exe
echo REGEDIT4 >> fix.reg
echo. >> fix.reg
echo [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{E796CA47-E1BB-42F3-B817-206A2F61B62C}] >> fix.reg
regedit /s fix.reg

copy C:\WINDOWS\system\MBTASK.DLL backups
copy C:\WINDOWS\system\MCLS31.DLL backups
copy C:\WINDOWS\system\MHDEMUI.DLL backups

deltree /y C:\WINDOWS\system\MCLS31.DLL
deltree /y C:\WINDOWS\system\MHDEMUI.DLL
deltree /y C:\WINDOWS\system\Uhidrv.dll
explorer.exe

Save the file as C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\l2m9xfix\taketwo.bat and make sure the "Save as type" field says "All files". Then please go to the l2m9xfix folder on your desktop and double-click on taketwo.bat. Allow it to finish, then restart your computer, run the regular RunThis.bat, and post the log.txt for me again. :tazz:

Sure didn't.... can you please try the following:

Please run Notepad and copy the following text into a new file:

@ECHO OFF
echo REGEDIT4 >> fix.reg
echo. >> fix.reg
echo [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{1DC178BC-76AC-4EB5-B529-DDA2417C0E4F}] >> fix.reg
regedit /s fix.reg
del fix.reg
cd c:\windows\desktop\l2m9xfix
call taketwo.bat
exit


Save the file as C:\fix.bat and make sure the "Save as type" field says "All files".

Now we're going to run this batch three times in hopes that one of them will kill the bad CLSID.

Run it first just by going to My Computer, navigating to C:\, and double-clicking on fix.bat.

Then please run Notepad, and open the file c:\windows\system.ini. Look for a line in this file beginning with the letters shell=
It will probably say:

shell=explorer.exe

or

shell=explorer

Change that line to say:

shell=command.com

Save the changes and exit Notepad.

Then please run Notepad again and copy the following text into a new file:

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce]
"*Batch"="C:\\fix.bat"


Save the file to the desktop as fix.reg and make sure the "Save as type" field says "All files". Then double-click on fix.reg, and click Yes to merge it with the registry.

Restart your computer. When it starts up, you should NOT get your normal desktop. You should get a black command prompt window instead.

At the command prompt type the following commands, pressing Enter after each one:

cd c:\
fix


A window may appear and disappear quickly --- this is normal.

Then type the commands:

cd c:\windows\desktop\l2m9xfix
taketwo


Another window may appear. Finally, type:

notepad

Notepad will open. Again open the file C:\windows\system.ini, and change the shell= line back to what it was before; probably:

shell=explorer.exe

Save the file and exit Notepad. Restart your computer again. You should get a normal desktop this time.

Then run the original RunThis.bat again, and post the log once more. :tazz:

Good morning Swandog. I have a question on the above steps. When I run the fix.bat in the first step, it finishes, but says bad command or file name, I end up with no desktop and need to alt/ctrl/del to restart. I haven't tried to go any farther yet, as I'm not sure if that is what should happen?? I truly appreciate your patience and time with this. I do have all the instructions you've given printed out, just wanted to know if that is normal?? Also, should I have my system restore on or off for all this? Thanks soooo much!

The batch should restart Explorer; I'm not sure why it didn't. But I guess just keep going; the fact that it didn't restart explorer so you had to shut down manually is an annoyance more than an obstacle. :) I'll be interested to see the results.

Leave system restore on please. I am always scared to turn it off. :tazz:

:tazz: hello....um..I followed all of the instructions you've given and it appears these files are multiplying!!! I don't know if I did something wrong along the way or if this thing is just really that ugly! Anyway, here's the latest log from the runthis fix... and I don't know if this will help or not, but most of the time I can delete these dll files, except the one JBAW400....that one never seems to go away. Thanks bunches!!!

Sorry I didn't get back to you before now. Let's try a different approach. I am told the new version of SpySweeper cleans this infection. Please go here:
http://www.webroot.c...ucts/spysweeper

and download the SpySweeper trial. Install it, and run it, update your definitions files. Then run a full sweep, and clean anything found. You'll probably have to reboot. Then restart your computer, and please post me a new log from RunThis.bat.... :tazz:

Yep, your log looks clean to me! :tazz:

Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  • Disable and Enable System Restore. - If you are using Windows ME or XP then you should disable and reenable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point left over from what we have just cleaned.

    You can find instructions on how to enable and reenable system restore here:

    Managing Windows Millenium System Restore

    or

    Windows XP System Restore Guide

    Renable system restore with instructions from tutorial above

  • Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    • From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    • Click once on the Security tab
    • Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    • Click once on the Custom Level button.
      • Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
      • Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
      • Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
      • Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
      • Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
      • Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
      • When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
      • If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
    • Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
  • Use an AntiVirus Software - It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future.

    See this link for a listing of some online & their stand-alone antivirus programs:

    Virus, Spyware, and Malware Protection and Removal Resources

  • Update your AntiVirus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

  • Use a Firewall - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over. I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.

    For a tutorial on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:

    Understanding and Using Firewalls

  • Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

  • Install Spybot - Search and Destroy - Install and download Spybot - Search and Destroy with its TeaTimer option. This will provide realtime spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection. You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware , Malware, and Hijackers

  • Install Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware. ou should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software in conjunction with Spybot.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware, Malware, & Hijackers from Your Computer

  • Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.

    Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware and Malware

  • Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.
