Help!Crictical Error

By Conjon
Dec 5, 2006
  1. Well I keep getting this System Error icon in my system tray which says my computer is infected by Trojan-Spy.Win32@mx. <--- Ran Adware SE, seems it found the problem, I deleted it from there but it didn't go away. I have read other posts of what to do with this on the forum, but I also have a process named isnotify.exe <--- I delete this off the process list and the error icon goes, away. But as after I have turned off/on or rebooted my pc for whatever reason it comes back after 4 or 5 minutes of being logged on. I also read posts to do with isnotify.exe, and what to do is different; so at the moment i'm stuck between the 2. I have a HJT log attached aswell, if that's any help. Any idea's what to do?
    Thanks.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your system is riddled with nasties.

    You`re not running any antivirus or firewall software and this has no doubt contributed to your situation.

    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.


    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Having problems using the online scan, took me an hour and half to get up to the deletion part(which it might, ok). But then it says something along the lines 'delete' is selected for some of the infected files, if you delete these important data may be lost. So i click ok and it was on 'pre-paring' for about 10 minutes, so i click 'clean' again, asks me the same question but this time it caused an error and shut down the browser. <-- Does this mean I have to go through all of it again?

    If you`re having problems with the online scanner, skip it and move on to the rest of the instructions.

    You`re still not running any firewall software. I suggest you install one of the firewall programmes in this thread HERE.

    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.

    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.

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

    Safety Bar

    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).

    PowerReg Scheduler.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) - {1A54AFEA-F34D-4359-8815-E1DDB11EAC92} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\wcgrktkx.dll

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {3657900C-451D-8645-8CBA-C735910FA104} - C:\WINDOWS\system\brwctl32.dll

    O2 - BHO: CIEPl Object - {3D70343E-636E-4FDC-AFF1-5907C3C4021F} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\mstsc.dll

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {4AC39C63-62DF-46A1-B595-4835530B1DC9} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\wcgrktkx.dll

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {67270207-b9ee-4d26-9270-860fdb060ca1} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\ixt1.dll

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {73364D99-1240-4dff-B12A-67E448373148} - (no file)

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {A8F68BF7-DDDA-48A4-87B1-7949FAF9C4C2} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\xvdasnmd.dll

    O4 - Startup: PowerReg Scheduler.exe

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

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

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: setdrv32 - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\setdrv32.dll

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

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

    PowerReg Scheduler.exe<Search your system for this file and delete all instances found.

    C:\Program Files\Safety Bar<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\setdrv32.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\mstsc.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\xvdasnmd.dll

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\ixt1.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\wcgrktkx.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\system\brwctl32.dll

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

    Post a fresh HJT log.

    Regards Howard :)

    Windows firewall is complete crap. Sure it`s better than nothing, but it won`t do a very good job of protecting your system.

    Thanks for all the help and everything Howard, but I was getting irritated at how slow my PC was working, and for the next step I couldn't even get onto to safe mode anymore. So I reformatted and reinstalled XP. I have downloaded a firewall like you told me to, hopefully it will never happen again.
    Thanks.
