"Hello, first post i belive!

besides the point, not to sure if this should of been posted in here.

and before you ask me to post a HJT log i cant..

main reson being it closes as soon as it opens, so dose tasmanager so dose regedit etc.

had this problem before, how ever this time i can pinpoint anything that is doing it

not only that, i get rid of one virus/worm/REALLY ANNOYIN PROGRAM! and another one comes on

had to get rid of some pokapoka thing, then some nakedx.exe thing.

now what ever is causing this

anyway peeps, thanks for reading hopeyou can help/point my in the direction of help

OK, let's see if I can be of any assistance :tazz:

Did you remove anything before this happened (besides the removals by the spyware scans)?

What was the infection/worm you had that you removed?

See if you can do this:

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should 'not' have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Download KillBox http://www.greyknigh...spy/KillBox.exe. Run KillBox and check the box that says 'End Explorer Shell While Killing File'. Next click on 'Delete on Reboot'. Copy the below files and go back to KillBox. Go to File->Paste from Clipboard and then hit the button with a red circle and white X. Confirm to delete and when asked if you want to reboot, say Yes:

C:\Program Files\MsConfigs\MsConfigs.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\p2pnetwork.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\CMD.COM
C:\WINDOWS\system32\netstat.com
C:\WINDOWS\system32\ping.com
C:\WINDOWS\system32\regedit.com
C:\WINDOWS\system32\tasklist.com
C:\WINDOWS\system32\taskkill.com
C:\WINDOWS\system32\taskmgr.com
C:\WINDOWS\system32\tracert.com


If you get a PendingOperations message, just close it and restart your computer manually.

Restart and post a new HijackThis log.

hey again
First off

when i go to "paste from clipboard" nothing appears to happen, tried clicking the red X (identicle to the program icon)

and it said, you have not specified anything to delete, and that i have to in a yellow box.

advice as to were to go?

and no, nothing i deleted by hand, apart from the "nakedx.exe" file in system files, and i belive the main virus i had was pokapoka one?

but ive had a few. seemed to slow my downlods down, and close windows.

Thanks..

Sam.

ps.

i did copy the list of items from the notepad

well these to be pricese

C:\Program Files\MsConfigs\MsConfigs.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\p2pnetwork.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\CMD.COM
C:\WINDOWS\system32\netstat.com
C:\WINDOWS\system32\ping.com
C:\WINDOWS\system32\regedit.com
C:\WINDOWS\system32\tasklist.com
C:\WINDOWS\system32\taskkill.com
C:\WINDOWS\system32\taskmgr.com
C:\WINDOWS\system32\tracert.com

Hmmm, how about looking for those files manually and deleting them (if found)?

OK, try renaming HijackThis.exe to something like HJT1.exe instead. Now try opening it and running a scan. Still closes on you? If it still does it, try running this program first and then run HijackThis again.

You renamed it? Delete them...delete those exactly as I listed them with ONLY those extensions and filenames. If they look similar, don't touch them.

You must install XP SP1a (hold off on SP2 until your computer is clean). Without SP1a, you are wide open to re-infection. When you are ready, post a new HijackThis log here.

Oh, that :tazz: I thought you were referring to the files I asked you to delete :) No, renaming it does the trick since there are some spyware/trojans that prevent you from running known spyware/virus fighting programs.

Can you go online at all on this computer? If so, do this:

Please go HERE (Microsoft website) using Internet Explorer (not Firefox or any other browser as they won't work)
  • Click on Windows Validation Assistant
  • Click on the Validate Now button.
  • Be patient while the ActiveX loads, do not click on any links.
  • Read the instructions on this page while it's loading. You will be prompted to install - click YES.
  • Enter your product key then click continue
  • When it says "Validation Complete" please click Continue to return to your previous activity
  • Copy what it says and paste it here.

We’re sorry, but there is no Microsoft.com Web page that matches your entry. It is possible you typed the address incorrectly, or the page may no longer exist. You may wish to try another entry or choose from the links below, which we hope will help you find what you’re looking for.

Try clicking here and see if it takes you to the Microsoft site. Then click on the Windows Validation Assistant...follow the previous post I gave you.

We need to do the above first before we do the HJT fixes because you don't have SP1 installed.

Yes, please install SP1 first (hold off on SP2). I must wait for you until you installed it before we can continue any further.

After you are done (which should take a good 30 minutes or so), restart and post a new HijackThis log here. We will begin then :tazz:
