iexplore.exe virus i think

By FragGurr

  1. One of my computers is running really slow. Slow to the point it freezes sometimes. When I pullup task manager, it sometimes says I have 2 or 3 iexplore.exe running. When one of the tasks is ended, I get a new exe...MEMOEA~1.EXE and also BENDME~1.EXE. I have seen them both. But it takes a few trys before the iexplore.exe stays off. Most of the time it keeps popping up. I have followed every step on the SPYWARE/MALWARE/ADWARE thread. Except for the Trendhouse call, as I get CiD pop-ups which take up my memory and causes the scan to freeze and not start back up. I have attached a copy of hjt as well combofix, combofix-quarantine, and the avgas.

    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).

    ds1aclen.exe
    Bend mess.exe
    dpciveds.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) - {7E853D72-626A-48EC-A868-BA8D5E23E045} - (no file)

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [q3nf3qT] ds1aclen.exe

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Stupid Data Dart Wave] "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\flag ace stupid data\Bend mess.exe"

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [b04pRkf3j] dpciveds.exe

    O4 - Global Startup: WinZip Quick Pick.lnk.disabled

    O16 - DPF: {76CB493D-11F7-4236-BDE4-7A5851B03FA9} (Launcher Class) - http://www.cabalonline.net/Com/CabalWebLauncher.cab

    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\Application Data\flag ace stupid data<Delete the entire folder.
    dpciveds.exe<Search your system for this file and delete all instances found.
    ds1aclen.exe<Search your system for this file and delete all instances found.

    Reboot into normal mode and rehide your protected OS files.

    Post a fresh HJT log.

    Sorry about that. I misunderstood. :blush: Here is the correct HJT.

    Thanks again Howard.

    Your HJT log is 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 :)

    I don`t recommend anyone to install the Speed it up for free software.

    It`s not necessary, will use resources and installs extra software without he users permission. Any software that installs stuff secretly is shady to say the least.

    A properly configured pc doesn`t need any extra utilities to make it run better.
