  1. I think i have followed all the directions about HJT logs and cleaning your system correctly. Thanks for letting me know about these tools. Here are my logs to see how well i did and if i still need help. I think i still have a couple of trojan's floating around...

    Thanks

    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.

    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

    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).

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [gzt065ee] RUNDLL32.EXE w0427c55.dll,n 002065ec0000000a0427c55

    O20 - AppInit_DLLs: pushow22.dll

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: Explorer - C:\WINDOWS\system32\dfsetup.dll (file missing)

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: StillImage - C:\WINDOWS\system32\xtlprovi.dll (file missing)

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: winpwo32 - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\winpwo32.dll


    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.

    These are the filepaths you need to enter into killbox.

    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\winpwo32.dll

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\pushow22.dll

    C:\windows\system32\w0427c55.dll

    Once your system has rebooted, turn system restore back on and post a fresh HJT log.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Thank you for your quick reply,

    I have done as you suggested.

    When i searched for pushow22.dll i didnt find anything. I'm not sure if "fixing" it in HJT got rid of it but i just thought i would let you know that i didnt manually delete anything.

    Doolen.

    Thanks :)

    I seem to be virus free and the trojans dont seem to be returning. I can't seem to turn on the welcome screen and fast user switching though. apparently mrvgina.dll seems to be blocking it though i dont know what installed it.

    I know its not a malware problem but just thought id ask for help.

    Thanks for sorting all these trojans for me.

    The mrvgina.dll is part of your netgear drivers. This is a known issue and is usually resolved by using an earlier version of the drivers.

    If you Google for mrvgina.dll, you`ll find plenty of info about this problem.
