Help with win**.tmp.exe

By Hippo
Aug 20, 2006
  1. Hello,

    I was recently infected with ismon.exe and ishost.exe but I was able to search it out and remove it, and have yet to see it since I deleted the files last night. However upon a reboot norton picked up win**.tmp.exe running. I've traced it to the temp folder but can't seem to permenatly get rid of them.

    I've also seen 68a9fd72.exe come up, that I traced to the windows32 folder but still replicates itself.

    However I beleive the win.tmp.exe is the culprit for numerous popups about virus scans and such.

    After looking at the log I beleive I might have a few more spyware programs(webhancer maybe)


    Any help is apreciated, Thanks.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    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

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

    webHancer\Programs

    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).

    whSurvey.exe
    eee2.exe
    68a9fd72.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).

    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

    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).

    Update.exe
    idd44.tmp.exe

    Close task manager.

    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.

    These are the file paths you need to enter into killbox.

    C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\idd44.tmp.exe
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\{E0DBE96E-0AEF-1033-0601-050322050001}\Update.exe

    Once your system has rebooted, turn system restore back on.

    Let me know how your system is running.

    Regards Howard :)

    Sorry, been away.

    Do you think that will stop them from reproducing though?
