  1. Hello everyone!

    I am new to the forums and I hope you guys can help me. I think I have some kind of keylogger in my system. I have scanned my computer with the programs that you recommend here and then some more but found nothing. Attaching the log file.

    Very thankful for any help.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    First, do the following.

    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.

    Click start/run and type services.msc into the run box and press the enter key.

    When the window appears, maximise it. Double click on the following services(if there) and select stop if they are running. Set the startup type to disabled. Click apply/ok for each service you disable.

    Card Adapter (NETDown)<Disable the service name and/or the name in brackets.

    Close the services window.

    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: [Alcmtr] ALCMTR.EXE

    O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {2D663D1A-8670-49D9-A1A5-4C56B4E14E84} - (no file)

    O9 - Extra button: PartyPoker.com - {B7FE5D70-9AA2-40F1-9C6B-12A255F085E1} - C:\Program\PartyGaming\PartyPoker\RunApp.exe (file missing)

    O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: PartyPoker.com - {B7FE5D70-9AA2-40F1-9C6B-12A255F085E1} - C:\Program\PartyGaming\PartyPoker\RunApp.exe (file missing)

    O23 - Service: Card Adapter (NETDown) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\smss.exe (file missing)

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

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

    C:\WINDOWS\smss.exe
    C:\Program\PartyGaming<Delete the entire folder.

    Reboot into normal mode and rehide your protected OS files.

    Then, do the following.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

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

    Also, let me know the results of the AVG Antirootkit scan.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Your HJT log is now clean.

    Do not delete the files as advised by momok. They are perfectly legit.

    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 :)
