    Hello and welcome to TechSpot.

    Your system is infected with at least one trojan/backdoor.

    Very important: Before deciding whether to clean or reformat your system, read this thread and decide what you want to do.

    If, after reading the above thread, you decide to clean your system, read the Viruses/spyware/malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions to the letter, then post fresh HJT and AVG Antispyware logs as attachments into this thread.

    It is evident that you are running Windows XP Service Pack 1. Service Pack 2 has been released. Please visit Windows Update and update to whatever it finds (if it tells you that it wants to install Internet Explorer 7, I'd do that, but that's up to you. Update to Service Pack 2 at least).

    Regards :)

    This thread is for the use of T_T only. Please don`t post your own virus/spyware problems in this thread. Instead, open a new thread in the Security and the Web forum.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    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.

    Microsoft Update<This service is bogus and does not belong to microsoft.

    Close the services window.

    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).

    msconfg.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).

    O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [Microsoft Update] msconfg.exe

    O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{B66A150D-94C2-48D7-BC81-55D5710E4DCD}: Domain = sympatico.ca<Only fix this if you don`t recognise the domain or it doesn`t belong to your ISP.

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

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

    msconfg.exe<Search your system for this file and delete all instances found. Note: Not to be confused with msconfig.exe, take note of the missing i.

    Reboot into normal mode and rehide your protected OS files.

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

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    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 :)
