Cleaning Up HiJackThis Log

By stunner
Jan 1, 2007
  1. Greetings and thanks for being here.
    I have been cleaning up a friends PC that was highly polluted with Spyware and viruses. I did some preliminary removal of programs, then ran AdAware and deleted the indicated files. Then I ran AVG Anti-Virus and deleted the indicated files. I then ran HiJackThis and would like an experienced set of eyes to take a look and see what's left with any recommendations.

    Thank you in advance.

    Here is the HiJackThis Log File:

    You need to have a read of this - If your system is infected. Read this before deciding whether to CLEAN or REFORMAT.

    Then if you should wish to proceed with cleaning your system you need to go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT and AVG Antispyware logs as ATTACHMENTS into this thread, only after doing the above.

    You might want to copy and paste these instructions into a notepad file. Then you can have the file open in safe mode, so you can follow the instructions easier.

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how HERE.

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE.


    Open your task manager, by holding down the ctrl and alt keys and pressing the delete key.

    bS5hU5.exe
    dir.exe
    irwuftj.exe

    rwhklcv.exe
    ALCXMNTR.EXE

    Close task manager.

    Run HJT with no other programmes open(except notepad). Click the scan button. Have HJT fix the following, by placing a tick in the little box next to(if there).

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [zBsnscc] C:\documents and settings\owner\local settings\temp\zBsnscc.exe

    Your HJT log is now clean.

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how HERE.

    Now, turn system restore back on again.

    Doing the above will delete all your restore points and the nasties in them. It will also create a new clean restore point.

    If you have any further virus/spyware problems, please post in this thread.

    Regards Howard :)

    Hello Again Howard.
    I am currently running Freedom Internet Security and Privacy which has Antivirus, Antispyware and Firewall.

    I tried to install both AVG and Avast antispyware but neither will run with Win 2000 Server.

    I am attaching a new Freedom scan log.
    I cannot upload the Freedom file straight as it is an html file so I renamed it .html.log Just rename it back and remove the .log and it should read fine.

    Here is my new HJT log.

    Download the Pocket Killbox programme from HERE. Extract it but don`t run it yet.

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE.

    Open your task manager, by holding down the ctrl and alt keys and pressing the delete key.

    Close task manager.

    Run HJT with no other programmes open(except notepad). Click the scan button. Have HJT fix the following, by placing a tick in the little box next to(if there).

    Run the killbox.exe file. When it loads type the full path to the file you would like to delete in the field and check the delete file on reboot button. press the Delete File button (looks like a red circle with a white X). It will prompt you to reboot, select no until you have finished inputting the files you want to delete, only then allow it to reboot and hopefully your files will now be deleted. If your computer doesn`t automatically restart, restart it manually.

    This is the filepath you need to enter into killbox.

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\wowexec.dll

    Once your system has rebooted, rehide your protected OS files.

    Post a fresh HJT log.
