  1. Hi All,

    I've finally followed all the instructions in Spike's post, but unfortunately the trojan refuses to go.

    Attached are my ewido and HJT logs

    Any help much appreciated

    Felix

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    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

    Go to add remove programmes in your control panel and uninstall anything to do with(if there).

    DeskAd Service

    Close control panel.

    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.

    Windows Update Service 2004/2005

    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).

    systemupdate.exe
    DeskAdServ.exe
    mdtr.exe
    ?ttrib.exe<The question mark can be any random letter or number etc.

    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).

    O2 - BHO: ST - {9394EDE7-C8B5-483E-8773-474BF36AF6E4} - C:\Program Files\MSN Apps\ST\01.03.0000.1005\en-xu\stmain.dll

    O3 - Toolbar: BT Yahoo! Companion - {EF99BD32-C1FB-11D2-892F-0090271D4F88} - C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Companion\Installs\cpn\ycomp5_5_7_0.dll (file missing)

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Windows Update Service 2004/2005] systemupdate.exe

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [DeskAd Service] C:\Program Files\DeskAd Service\DeskAdServ.exe

    O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [Windows Update Service 2004/2005] systemupdate.exe

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Ttah] C:\Documents and Settings\Felix\Application Data\mdtr.exe

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Laxjyxv] C:\WINDOWS\System32\?ttrib.exe

    O20 - AppInit_DLLs: wuauboot.dll

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

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

    C:\WINDOWS\System32\?ttrib.exe
    C:\Documents and Settings\Felix\Application Data\mdtr.exe
    C:\Program Files\DeskAd Service<Delete the entire folder.
    systemupdate.exe<Search your system for this file and delete all instances of it.

    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. If your computer doesn`t automatically restart, restart it manually.

    This is the filepath you need to enter into killbox.

    C:\windows\system32\wuauboot.dll

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

    Now go HERE and follow the instructions for renaming HijackThis.exe. and post a fresh HJT log.
