  1. Hello,

    I would first like to thank you guys for what you do. I followed all of the directions from the 'do this before you post a HJT log'; By following the instructions it seemed to free my computer from the notify*.ext malware, but after a about five days it seems to have replicated itself. I keep getting a virus notification from Symantec about a wineij virus and it states that it cannot quarantine nor delete the files needed. Now after seeing my webpages redirected to www.syssecuritypage.net I am back were I started. Should I go through the whole process adviced on the stickies first and then post you a HJT log or would you like to see my logs from when I first thought the malware and viri were gone...

    Download and run these four tools. Follow the instructions for using each tool.

    Post a fresh HJT log into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Quik Question

    Does it matter that when I log on Safe Mode, I enable networking? I do this so that I can still get on the Internet while working out these little #$@#$%'s. Also have an IPOD and an extra drive connected sometimes to my laptop, is there any extra instructions?

    Yes it does matter. Boot into proper safe mode, that way the malware can`t try and access the net.

    It doesn`t matter about your extra drive or Ipod at the moment, unless of course you suspect them to be infected as well. If that`s the case, you should disconnect them.


    Regards Howard :)

    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.

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

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial61.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

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

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

    74c976a5.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).

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {873eb32d-ae1a-4183-89bd-45a77f761be4} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\ixt0.dll (file missing)

    O3 - Toolbar: Safety Bar - {052b12f7-86fa-4921-8482-26c42316b522} - C:\Program Files\Safety Bar\Safety Bar.dll (file missing)

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [74c976a5.exe] C:\Documents and Settings\User1\Local Settings\Application Data\74c976a5.exe

    O16 - DPF: {CAFEEFAC-0015-0000-0007-ABCDEFFEDCBA} (Java Plug-in 1.5.0_07) -

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: wineij32 - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\wineij32.dll

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

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

    C:\Documents and Settings\User1\Local Settings\Application Data\74c976a5.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\wineij32.dll


    Once your system has rebooted, turn system restore back on and rehide your protected OS files.


    Post a fresh HJT log.

    Regards Howard :)
