Hi,

well, just when I decided everything was ok from the last WinFixer problem, Norton AntiVirus found the following:

Hacktool.Rootkit

residing in C\WINDOWS\system32\SVKP.sys

Deleted with TREND MICRO Anti-Spyware for the Web:

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zone Map\Ranges\Range 1\

and WebPosition - C:\Program Files\Web Position 3\

Need help urgently.

Linda

Hi Linda,

The applications known as Download Accelerator Plus (DAP.EXE) and AquaMark Benchmark (AQUAMARK.EXE) are known to trigger this incorrect identification.



Are any of these applications on this machine?

Also:

The presence of SVKP.SYS does not necessarily mean that this trojan is installed. SVKP.SYS is part of SVK Protector, which this trojan is packed with. SVK Protector is used in innocent programs as well.



Let me know if that's on the computer. If not, we will look into a rootkit infection.

Hi,

I had Download Accelerator installed when I got the last infection and uninstalled it when trying to find programs that may have been spyware; I am not familiar with the other program and never had it installed on my computer.

I found the SVKP.sys in the C:\WINDOWS\System32\ folder as was indicated by Norton Antivirus.

Thanks,
Linda

Norton may warn you on a script trying to run. Please allow the entire script to run.

***

Download AIMfix. Double-click it and let it run.

***

Please download LQfix.exe and save it to your desktop.
  • Double-Click LQfix.exe and click Next > Next > Install.
  • Leave the default settings, if you change them, the fix will Fail!
  • Now make sure the "Launch LQfix" box is checked.
  • Click the Finish button, after clicking the Finish button the fix will start.
  • Follow the on-screen prompts.
  • Your system will now reboot afterwards.
  • Please be patient after the reboot, there is a script running in the background that needs to complete.
***

Reboot the computer.

Let me know what Panda thinks now.

Hi,

I let the AIMfix run though it seems to have found nothing; I installed the LQfix.exe, everything happened as you said, the computer re-booted.

I am not sure what 'Panda' is; are you talking about LQfix.exe?

I did a Norton Anti-Virus scan which brought up the Hacktool.Rootkit as present but I was able to choose quarantine which I did (and was anot able to do previously) and another scan (by Norton) resulted in no notice of infection.

Does this tell me that everything is ok? Just need to know what you meant by 'Panda'.

Regards

Sorry for that, I thought I mentioned it in this topic before.

Run the Free use Panda Active Scan
use the free use active scan link in the right hand corner.
You need to use Internet Explorer for this scan.
  • Click on Check Now!
  • A new window will appear; fill in the boxes (Country, State, email addy)
  • Click on Scan Now! >
    If you have never used ActiveScan before, you will be prompted to install an ActiveX control (asinst.cab) : click on Install. Panda will install the component, and then install the latest signature files.
  • From "Select a device to scan...", choose "My Computer"
  • Allow the scan to run. It'll take a while.
  • When complete, click on "See Report", and then on "Save report"; save it to a convenient location.
  • I will need you to post that report in your next reply; simply open the text file, then copy/paste the content here.

Well, that looks good. Like you say, it might just be the sites you're visiting whistling.gif

Let's see if we can clean up that extra last bit.
  • Open HijackThis
  • Click on the configure button on the bottom right
  • Click on the tab "Misc Tools"
  • Click on the Box that says "Uninstall Manager"
  • Click on the button "Save list"
  • Copy and past the List from notepad into your post

Linda, I've been doing some checking around. It looks like it's just a false positive by Norton.

You can remove the LQfix 2.1. Other than that I don't see anything that needs removing.

Guess you're clean to go.

Shall I post you the tips for the future and close the topic?
