    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

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

    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.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial61.html

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial56.html

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial62.html

    Click start/run and type services.msc into the run box and press the enter key.

    When the window appears, maximise it. Double click on the following services(if there) and select stop if they are running. Set the startup type to disabled. Click apply/ok for each service you disable.

    p2p networking

    Close the services window.

    Open your task manager(if you can), by holding down the ctrl and alt keys and pressing the delete key.

    Click on the processes tab and end process for(if there).

    p2pnetworking.exe
    8908af4.exe
    msconfig.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).

    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar,LinksFolderName = Bağlantılar

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [p2p networking] p2pnetworking.exe

    O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [p2p networking] p2pnetworking.exe

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [8908af4.exe] C:\Documents and Settings\Y.E.T\Local Settings\Application Data\8908af4.exe

    O4 - Global Startup: msconfig.exe

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: winmqx32 - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\winmqx32.dll

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Locate and delete the following bold files and/or directories(if there).

    p2pnetworking.exe
    C:\Documents and Settings\Y.E.T\Local Settings\Application Data\8908af4.exe

    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.

    This is the filepath you need to enter into killbox.

    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\winmqx32.dll

    Once your system has rebooted, turn system restore back on and post a fresh HJT log.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
