New member, looking to find out how to remove trojan-downloader-ruin

webroot spysweeper has found it and it keeps generating 5-letter exe files that are flagged to start up the next time i reboot. ever boot cycle i run webroot, but it's getting old. i'm afraid the downloader is going to let some more malware onto my pc.

I see I'm not the first one to post a thread about this particular malware, but i can't seem to find any resolved threads.

Any advice?

We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool, Hijack This. Follow the instructions in step five of this guide, and reply here with your log.

Most of what Hijack This lists lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

i think during the course of the last step, something went wrong. i'm now not able to use xp style buttons any longer, and some programs no longer run. i'm pretty sure i deleted the correct service.exe file but i can't help but think they're somehow related.... i'll continue with the next step, but several things aren't working that did a few minutes ago, and i followed these steps to the T, any advice?

service.exe is a bad file.

Services.exe is a system file.

In case you deleted services.exe, then you can copy it from c:\windows\system32\dllcache folder to c:\windows\system32 folder.

The dllcache folder is a hidden folder. To view hidden files and folders, read this page - http://www.bleepingc...tutorial62.html

in response to the services.exe file. it looks like it's still in place. interesting my dungeon siege 2 gets stuck at the splash screen and some of the windows xp visual settings are no longer available. i can't seem to think of what else could be responsible for that.

IE Seems to be behaving fine. it still asks me the same question after a reboot if i want to work offline or try to connect to the internet again. thank you for the help of removing this virus, but the repercussions of whatever has happened during this process are too great. so many little things aren't working that used to or should within my windows framework.
