  1. Hi. I ran into problems with the ishost.exe and ismon.exe trojan this morning. I found a thread here that had some steps for removal that I followed. So far, it looks like I'm all cleaned up... but can you peek at my HJT log and let me know if you see any other problems. Thanks!!

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Please rename HijackThis.exe to HijackThis1991.exe and post a fresh HJT log.

    This is because some malware can hide from HijackThis.exe.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Your system is still infected with a variety of nasties.

    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 an attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Regards Howard :)

    I went through all the steps in the "Trojan Pakes and other nasties, preliminary removal instructions" thread. Attached is a new HJT log and the ewido scan report.

    As for symptoms... so far, everything seems to be working fine. Mostly, I was just getting those popups pretending to be security warnings. Really, the only thing going on now is a rundll error message that I also attached.

    Thanks for your help!

    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

    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).

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Connection Wizard,ShellNext = http://www.dell.com/download/

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {304F0561-7575-6BCD-5469-02246A84C618} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\avshxik.dll (file missing)

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {549B5CA7-4A86-11D7-A4DF-000874180BB3} - (no file)

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {849B9523-785F-4014-9CAF-079FB4A74C61} - (no file)

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {a43385f0-7113-496d-96d7-b9b550e3fcca} - (no file)
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [efvwnmi.dll] C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\efvwnmi.dll,rivxyuc

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: winbfi32 - winbfi32.dll (file missing)

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Delete all files in Ewido 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.

    This is the filepath you need to enter into killbox.

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\efvwnmi.dll,rivxyuc

    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 if you`re still having problems.

    Regards Howard :)
