Have Lop.AQ virus

By Rockrider
Nov 19, 2006
  1. Hi: I have a Lop.AQ virus that my antivirus can not find. It will catch the virus when it tries to open a file in the windows temp folder or internet temp folder. I send it to vault but it keeps on trying.I followed the preliminary removal instructions from Trojan Pakes and other nasties and have attacted the HJT report.
    .
    Thanks for your help and time.

    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.

    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

    Go to add remove programmes in your control panel and uninstall anything to do with(if there).

    MYWEBSEARCH
    WebRebates4
    websrebates

    Close control panel.

    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).

    mwsoemon.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).

    R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - <default> - (no file)

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {16652c44-6091-4861-9167-56ffc1c5fa62} - (no file)

    O18 - Protocol: msnim - {828030A1-22C1-4009-854F-8E305202313F} - "C:\PROGRA~1\MSNMES~1\msgrapp.dll" (file missing)

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: kbdayx - kbdayx.dll (file missing)

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: winemx32 - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\winemx32.dll

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

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

    C:\Program Files\WebRebates4<Delete the entire folder.
    C:\PROGRA~1\MYWEBS~1<Delete the entire folder.

    Delete all files in AVG Antispyware quarantine.

    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.

    These are the filepaths you need to enter into killbox.

    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\winemx32.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\fubfgwn.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\dytihhh.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\gqjdztj.dll

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

    This is taken from your HJT log. C:\Program Files\hijackthis\Hijackthis1991.exe\HijackThis.exe

    As you can see, you`re still running HijackThis.exe, rather than HijackThis1991.exe. It is very important, you rename HijckThis.exe to HijackThis1991.exe.

    Post a fresh HJT log, only after doing all of the above.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    New HJT

    Hi Howard: I renamed the HJT exe correctly this time and followed your instructions. So far so good. The killbox would not run in safe mode so I ran it after rebooting and then rebooted again.
    I get a error message now when starting up " C:\WINDOWS\system32\drvbim.dll The specfied module could not be found" I clik ok, it goes away and doesn't cause any problems that I know of. Do you know what this is?
    Thanks for your time and help

    I don`t know what`s happened, but your system has some new infections, that weren`t there in your previous HJT log.

    Go and read the Trojan Pakes and other nasties 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.


    Regards Howard :)

    It seems you`re not running any firewall software. If that`s the case, you should install some asap. You can find some suggestion HERE.

    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

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {2320D5AD-E104-C677-6540-0BC756CCC91A} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\fmzuhln.dll

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: winemx32 - winemx32.dll (file missing)

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Delete all files in AVG Antispyware quarantine.

    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).

    This is the filepath you need to enter into killbox.

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\fmzuhln.dll

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

    Post a fresh HJT log and let me know how your system is running.

    Regards Howard :)
