  1. Hello techspot people,

    I would really appreciate your help.

    I first noticed a problem when there was a red dot icon in the bottom right toolbar which expanded with an official looking window titled Spyware Detection Alert.

    I've done all the preliminary scans as instructed on this site. The hijackthis log and avg antispyware report are attached.

    The red icon has gone after the scans but the problems are still there: internet explorer is dead giving me a blue screen and avg had to heal and vault 3 trojan attacks as soon as I connected to the internet (win344.tmp.exe, win346.tmp.exe, Yazzle11620inAdmin.exe).


    Again, all help really appreciated.

    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.

    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.

    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) - {26B61245-2471-3859-3126-04487DAC7F8A} - (no file)

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {35F7813A-AF74-4474-B1DC-7EE6FB6C43C6} - (no file)

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {3DA7F600-C5A6-43B1-BE24-057C4040E0C0} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\pmkhi.dll

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {C671A733-A4AA-4B5F-8CEE-006242C457B5} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\yayabxw.dll

    O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{163499D3-8422-4F71-A263-177A8172E29C}: NameServer = 62.6.40.178 194.72.9.38<Only fix this if it doesn`t belong to your ISP BT.NET.

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: winrnt32 - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\winrnt32.dll

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

    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). 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\yayabxw.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\winrnt32.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\pmkhi.dll

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

    Post a fresh HJT log.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    thanks Howard,

    I followed your instructions and those dll files are still in system32. I think I may have rebooted after I'd sent you the hjt log. Some of the entries in the new hijack window were different and I could only find 3 of the 6 that you listed.

    I have attached the latest hjt log.

    Your system is even more infected now than it was before. However, there`s no need to worry as I`m sure we can clean it up.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly. Do this, even if you`ve already done it.


    Post fresh HJT and AVG Antispyware logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.


    Regards Howard :)

    here is the latest HJT log.

    After restart following the vundo fix, a box appeared with the message "Error loading C:\WINDOWS\system32\sruusxm.dll The specified module could not be found"

    That`s looking much better.

    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.

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {B22C3D5E-26B2-4712-9368-F16E2ABC2F4D} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\pmkhi.dll (file missing)

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [sruusxm.dll] C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\sruusxm.dll,nsrxhv

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    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\sruusxm.dll

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

    Post a fresh HJT log.

    Done that. This time I was able to find and fix all the files you mentioned.

    Hope this has done it.

    Great. Thank you very much. I have no idea how or why this service is provided but I'll just assume it's old fashioned kindness to balance out the evil of the virus makers.

    And you're a fellow Englishman too!

    Should I keep spybot, avg antivirus, avg Anti-spyware, ad-aware all running?

    By all means keep the programmes, but don`t have them running in the background as they just take up system resources.

    The only programmes you need to be running constantly are your antivirus and firewall software.

    You might want to take a look at this thread HERE. It`ll show you how you can make your system more secure.
