Problem with 4 new icons

By publiccovert
Sep 4, 2010
  1. ok, so here is the problem... (I have win XD pro)
    while doing research on google, i was prompted to install a chinese language pack. i did not, primarily because i was reading the site in english. as soon as i closed the box, it reopened. this happened several times until i checked the "do not ask me again" box. then my IE crashed.
    going to my desktop, i found my IE icon was gone, but another was in a diffrent spot labled "Intennet Exploner" and below that was 3 iconswith very a confusing language (Im assuming its my pc trying to figgure out simplified chinese). when i right click these icons, i get nothing but squares. if i highlight it and hit the del key, it says it cannot delete becaue it isin use by another person or program.
    I tried to restart my pc, no luck.
    so i removed my zip drive and moved to my laptop (What im using now)
    when i connected to the laptop, i accessed the internet (Wich is much slower but better protected due to the sensitive files on it) i recieved the SAME THING! INSTANTLY! i hadn't gone anywhere except the google homepage and im assuming they came over on the zip drive.

    so...... i need help in terms for a complete *****. im not that tech savvy (savvy on many things, but my tech knowlage stopped with win98) I need to know how to delete these files (there is also one in my favorates list in IE that wont delete either) and how not to loose all my information.

    Please help.

    Update: now i have 2 new problems stemming from this. my system restore does nothing, because i tried it on my first computer. so i put in my xd disk and was trying somehow to get sys restore to work. nothing doin. so i rebooted. IT TRIED TO INSTALL WINDOWS AGAIN. now when i start my pc, it asks me which version of windows i want to use. the one on top is the new version (which does not run correctly and ho no programs at all) and the bottom takes me back to my usual page, where i STILL have those 4 desktop icons. so now i REALLY need help. how do i get back to having just 1 windows? and again, how do i get rid of those stupid icons?

    I can't help you until I see something to work with. You will need to determine what the icons are for to remove them.

    If you would like us to check the system for malware, please follow the steps in the Preliminary Virus and Malware Removal thread HERE.

    When you have finished, leave the logs for review in your next reply .

    Please do not use any other cleaning programs or scans while I'm helping you, unless I direct you to. Do not use a Registry cleaner or make any changes in the Registry.

    No problem. But don't edit the post to leave the logs because I don't get notified of a reply when it's an edit. Just make a new reply and paste the logs in the new reply. Okay to use another post if all logs won't fit in to one.

    We will work on one computer at a time so make sure all the information in this thread is for the same computer.

    I will emphasize though that once you run these programs and leave the logs that it is very important you follow my last sentence in red.

    Ok, i cant get these logs to post (they are way too long) and so i just posted the files.

    in summary, the anti-malware software took out the icons, links and programs lists that had appered, (which totaled 11 by then).

    Your system is badly infected with:

    and something questionable from: C:\Program Files\KWMUSIC\kwmusic.exe

    Since you attached the logs I asked you to paste in the reply, it will take me much longer to identify any entries because I now have to copy and paste each one in to search instead of doing it through my browser.

    Thank you. You may be infected with the Sality Virus. IF that proves to be the case, I will recommend a reformat/reinstall.

    Okay, most of the entries are in the Qoobox which is where Combofix puts the quarantined files. I have been working on that log for a while to see if the system is salvageable.

    Please download OTMovit by Old Timer and save to your desktop.
    • Double-click OTMoveIt3.exe to run it. (Vista users, please right click on OTMoveit3.exe and select "Run as an Administrator")
    • Copy the file paths below to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose Copy):

      C:\Program Files\Common Files\Storm_new.exe	
      C:\Program Files\Common Files\Storm_new.scr	
      [start explorer]
    • Return to OTMoveIt3, right click in the "Paste Instructions for Items to be Moved" window and choose Paste.
    • Click the red Moveit! button.
    • A log of files and folders moved will be created in the c:\_OTMoveIt\MovedFiles folder in the form of Date and Time (mmddyyyy_hhmmss.log). Please open this log in Notepad and post its contents in your next reply.
    • Close OTMoveIt3
    If a file or folder cannot be moved immediately you may be asked to reboot the machine to finish the move process. If you are asked to reboot the machine choose Yes.
    You need to Disable AutoRun:
    This will not block the vulnerability, however. It will reduce the vulnerability a bit. Please see Microsoft Support article 967715 for more details.
    You will have to determine if you have the requisite updates first.

    After you have disabled AuroRun, please reboot the computer and rescan with the Eset online scanner.

    ok, whilst you are working on this, i have to ask you a question, would this virus.....or whatever the F it is... could it have infected just ONE peticular powerpoint or word file? and if so, could it have been programmed to unleash at a peticular date? and my big question, if that ONE file is what is infected, could i open it and copy and paste the text to another file without copying the virus?

    the reason i ask is that i accesed another pc in my house, not the first one and not the laptop. this pc has no access to the internet and has not been in direct or internet connection with the other two and.....FRICKIN CHINESE ICONS!!! only this computer has the language softwhere already installed and i can read the titles of the icons....

    links to chinese online stores, importation dealers guessed

    sorry, but this is really starting to P me off. i honestly think it has infected the 1 file that i cannot replace and have been working on for almost a full year, and the third computer is just not able to be lost at all. (it may help to know that it has a second hard drive and over 250gigs of important data, so im hoping i can just disconnect that and it'll still be ok).

    PS: I really appreciate your help and expertiese. this has been really tiring

    something new, i disconected a flash drive from my laptop and all the icons went away! could it be that fricking little piece of $#!+ screwing up my pc?

    Your flash drive could have been the source of some of the infections. We can disinfect that.

    You have 3 new infections- one is another autorun. Did you disable the autoruns?
    Win32/AutoRun.Delf.HK worm
    Win32/StartPage.NSJ trojan
    Win32/HideProc.NAF trojan

    I strongly recommend you stop using the Administor account.. Please read the information here about UAC:

    I am also going to recommend that you reformat/reinstall:
    You will find excellent reformat/reinstall instructions here:

    yea, i disable the autorun per the instructions, and i can tell ya, it takes a while to get used to not immieditly working with a disc or drive that was inserted. lol.
    how can we disinfect the flash drive?
    what other account should i use? that link didnt say much, being for vista and all. i found the xp equivilant, but am still confused.
    and any ideas how to back up the important stuff on my harddrive before the reformat/reinstall without getting the virus?

    Autorun worms spread from USB/thumb drives as well as fixed and mapped drives. Autorun worms typically drop or download additional malware, usually backdoors and password stealers. this will give you additional information about Autorun:

    Flash Drive Disinfector:
    Threat Removal Procedure:

    • [1]. Download Flash_Disinfector and save it to your Desktop.
      [2]. After downloading, double-click on Flash_Disinfector to run it.
      [3]. Just follow the prompts and continue until it begin scanning.
      [4]. If asked to insert your flash drive or any removable device including USB Pen Drive and Memory Stick, please do so.
      [5]. It will scan removable drives, wait for the scan to finish. Done.

    And the big question:
    The time to backup is before an infection. At this point, you do not know which files have been infected. If you back up and want to put back on the system when clean, you will need to scan the files with the AV program first.

    You will find an excellent write up by jobeard regarding the account here:
