  1. I was having spyware problems and at this moment, no popups have come. Please ask me if you need more information. These logs are for the Malware removal thread. Please tell me if you see any files that should not be there.

    Thanks.

    1. Please download The Avenger by Swandog46 from HERE. Save it to your Desktop and extract it.

    2. Download the attached avengerscript.txt and save it to your desktop. The Avenger script is attached to the bottom of this post.

    Note: the above code was created specifically for this user. If you are not this user, do NOT follow these directions as they could damage the workings of your system.

    3. Now, start The Avenger program by double clicking on its icon on your desktop.

    Under "Script file to execute" choose "Load script from file".
    Now click on the folder icon which will open a new window titled "open Script File"
    navigate to the file you have just downloaded, click on it and press open
    Now click on the Green Light to begin execution of the script
    Answer "Yes" twice when prompted.

    4. The Avenger will automatically do the following:

    It will Restart your computer. ( In cases where the code to execute contains "Drivers to Unload", The Avenger will actually restart your system twice.)
    On reboot, it will briefly open a black command window on your desktop, this is normal.
    After the restart, it creates a log file that should open with the results of Avenger’s actions. This log file will be located at C:\avenger.txt
    The Avenger will also have backed up all the files, etc., that you asked it to delete, and will have zipped them and moved the zip archives to C:\avenger\backup.zip.

    5. Please attach the content of c:\avenger.txt into your reply, as well as fresh HJT and Combofix logs.

    Regards Howard :)

    You`re using an outdated version of HijackThis. See HERE for the latest version and instructions.

    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.

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE.

    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).

    jmrotsvu.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) - {4E352C5C-AE41-48CA-B7FB-DC4F0D3F6D83} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\swtyrtrs.dll (file missing)

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {7E853D72-626A-48EC-A868-BA8D5E23E045} - (no file)

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {92A444D2-F945-4dd9-89A1-896A6C2D8D22} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\xdqmnvay.dll (file missing)

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [jmrotsvu.exe] C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.WINDOWS\Application Data\jmrotsvu.exe

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: winepi32 - winepi32.dll (file missing)

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

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

    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.WINDOWS\Application Data\jmrotsvu.exe

    Reboot into normal mode and rehide your protected OS files.

    Post a fresh HJT log and let me know if you`re still having problems.

    Regards Howard :)

    I got the latest version of HJT from the link you gave me. And I followed the directions, and here is the latest HJT log. There is this little problem though. Ever since I got the virus, my startup has been delayed by these test checking somethign about IDE hard drives or so. Anyway to fix that?

    Your HJT log is now clean.

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how HERE.

    Now, turn system restore back on. This will have deleted all your old restore points and any nasties that are in them. It will also have created a new, clean restore point.

    If you have any further virus/spyware problems, please post in this thread.

    Regards Howard :)

    Howard, startup seems to still be a bit slow and performance has decreased a bit, but other then that there are no more problems. Thanks for the help again. :)

    Hello momok, I read and did all steps of the "speed up your system" topic and startup is still slow. It takes about 3 minutes for it to completely finish starting up.

    Your system shouldn`t be taking 3 minutes to boot.

    Click start/run and type msconfig into the run box and press the enter key. Click the startup tab and untick(disable) anything you don`t want to start with Windows. Click apply/ok and reboot your system. When the window open saying you have used msconfig to make changes etc, tick the box that says not to run msconfig the next time you start your system and click ok.

    You mentioned in your post #5 that during startup your system is running some ide checks of some description. Can you be more specific as to what tests are being run?

    Regards Howard :)

    Howard, I'm checking the startup tab and I see some that I'm not sure of what they are for.

    nwiz
    CTHELPER
    ctfmon
    MIDIDef

    And there are some that have no name nor description and they are running.

    Also, about the idle tests, The first one was about VIA Technologies but the scan finished too quick for me to read what it was about. And the 2nd one was checking for IDE drives and the test always fails saying "BIOS was not installed".

    It`s quite safe to disable those startup items, so no worries there.

    Take a look HERE for the "Bios not Installed" message you`re receiving.

    I got the computer to stop scanning for those RAID/SCSI devices and startup time has decreased. It's still slow when you see the Windows XP logo with those blue bars crossing, but other then that, it's fine now.

    I don`t know what else to suggest as regards your slow start up.

    A reformat and reinstall would in all probablility resolve that issue, but it does seem a little drastic.

    Regards Howard :)

    Yea but if I reformat, I won't be able to install windows XP Pro because the installation keeps freezing at 34 minutes. I think the cd is corrupted.
