    P2P Warning!

    • IMPORTANT I notice there are signs of one or more P2P (Person to Person) File Sharing Programs on your computer.

      BitLord 1.1, uTorrent and LimeWire

      Please note that as long as you are using any form of Peer-to-Peer networking and downloading files from non-documented sources, you can expect infestations of malware to occur
      Once upon a time, P2P file sharing was fairly safe. That is no longer true. You may continue to use P2P sharing at your own risk; however, please keep in mind that this practice may be the source of your current malware infestation

      I'd like you to read the Guidelines for P2P Programs where we explain why it's not a good idea to have them.

      References for the risk of these programs can be found in these links: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/community/columns/protection.mspx
      http://www.techweb.com/wire/160500554
      http://www.internetworldstats.com/articles/art053.htm
      See Clean/Infected P2P Programs here

      I would recommend that you uninstall LimeWire,BitLord, however that choice is up to you. If you choose to remove these programs, you can do so via Control Panel >> Add or Remove Programs.

      If you wish to keep it, please do not use it until your computer is cleaned.

    Delete bad programs
    • Click Start
    • Go to Control Panel
    • Go to Add/Remove Programs
    • Find and click Remove for the following (if present):

      LiveUpdate (Symantec Corporation)
      LiveUpdate (Symantec Corporation)
      Symantec AntiVirus

    NOTE: Take care when answering any questions posed by an uninstaller. Some questions may be worded to deceive you into keeping the program.

    • Click the Fix checked button and close HiJackThis
    • Reboot HijackThis if necessary

    COMBOFIX-Script

    • Please open Notepad (Start -> Run -> type notepad in the Open field -> OK) and copy and paste the text present inside the code box below:

      Code:
      File::
      C:\WINDOWS\system32\xenqfepa.exe
      
      Folder::
      C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\hglgfgni
      
      Registry::
      [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
      "bjrkhaps"=-
      
          
    • Save this as CFScript.txt and change the "Save as type" to "All Files" and place it on your desktop.

      [​IMG]
    • Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before following the steps below. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
    • Referring to the screenshot above, drag CFScript.txt into ComboFix.exe.
    • ComboFix will now run a scan on your system. It may reboot your system when it finishes. This is normal.
    • When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Copy and paste the contents of the log in your next reply.
    CAUTION: Do not mouse-click ComboFix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.

    What is this?
    NudgeMania.exe

    Ok if you want to Norton can go back on now, or if you want an alternative,

    download ONE of the following antivirus programs and install it.
    Once installed, Update it, run full system scan with it and allow it to fix up what it wants.
    Reboot if it fixed anything.

    You should get a firewall as well, either, these firewalls are all free,

    Fix entries using HiJackThis
    • Launch HiJackThis
    • Click the Do a system scan only button
