Trojan Horse Dialer 28.A will not dissapear - Hijackthis Post

  1. Hello all,
    About a week ago I got a Trojan Horse Dialer 28.A virus message appearing on the computer.

    I've got AVG installed and that moves it to the vault, I've tried emptying the vault but it keeps coming back.

    I've navigated manually to the folder with the infected files, but when I look for it the file doesn't seem to be there (I've turned on the show hidden file options).

    I've also downloaded SPybot Search and Destroy but this doesn't find it, and have rebooted in safe mode but to no avail.

    Below is my Hijackthis thread and I would be grateful for any help.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Go and read the Trojan Pakes and other nasties preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

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

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Ok done all that, and now as well as the Trojan Dialler 28.A alert coming up my computer is pathetically slow, and the egg timer is coming up constantly until it gets to the point where I have to restart the computer.

    Here is the HJT log

    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.

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial56.html

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial61.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).

    O16 - DPF: {B9191F79-5613-4C76-AA2A-398534BB8999} - http://us.dl1.yimg.com/download.yaho...tocomplete.cab

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: winwil32 - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\winwil32.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.

    This is the filepath you need to enter into killbox.

    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\winwil32.dll

    Once your system has rebooted, turn system restore back on and rehide your protected OS files.

    Post a fresh HJT log as an attachment(see HERE) and let me know how your system is running.


    Regards Howard :)
