  1. It seems that I clicked a bad link today. Usually I'm smart and I don't click on things unless I know where they come from, but I guess I had a brain fart.

    Some processes that are running that I don't usually see were:
    ismini.exe
    ishost.exe
    qttask.exe
    point32.exe <not recent just noticed it a while ago
    type32.exe< same as above

    I also have these weird things installed (not sure the names, too afraid to click them):

    Any help is much appreciated.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your system is infected with some real nasties. However, we should be able to get rid of them for you.

    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 attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.


    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    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

    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.

    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).

    arpa.exe
    msiexec.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).

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

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

    C:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\FNTS~1\arpa.exe
    C:\Program Files\??sks\msiexec.exe

    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.

    These are the filepaths you need to enter into killbox.

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\awvvu.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\yhokhcja.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\image.dll

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

    Go HERE and follow the instructions for Ccleaner.

    Post a fresh HJT and AVG Antispyware log, only after doing the above.

    Regards Howard :)
