Will someone please take a look at my HiJack this log

  1. I can't detect any malware on my system by conventional methods yet I am experience considerable losses in performance and I suspect some background services connecting to the internet. If you guys could take a look it would be most courteous.

    edit: ok I've had a look and can't see anything suspicious myself except perhaps the "missing file" WJJVX.exe, so i'm going to go ahead and look at some performance tweaks. I would still be grateful if someone could make analysis.

    Please download ComboFix from Here or Here to your Desktop.

    **Note: In the event you already have Combofix, this is a new version that I need you to download. It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**
    1. Please, never rename Combofix unless instructed.
    2. Close any open browsers.
    3. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
      • Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
      • Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.
      NOTE1. If Combofix asks you to install Recovery Console, please allow it.
      NOTE 2. If Combofix asks you to update the program, always do so.
      • Close any open browsers.
      • WARNING: Combofix will disconnect your machine from the Internet as soon as it starts
      • Please do not attempt to re-connect your machine back to the Internet until Combofix has completely finished.
      • If there is no internet connection after running Combofix, then restart your computer to restore back your connection.
    4. Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
    5. When finished, it will produce a report for you.
    6. Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt" along with a new HijackThis log for further review.
    **Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall**

    Make sure, you re-enable your security programs, when you're done with Combofix.

    DO NOT make any other changes to your computer (like installing programs, using other cleaning tools, etc.), until it's officially declared clean!!!

    c:\windows\System32\user32.dll
    IMPORTANT! If the file is listed as already analyzed, click on Reanalyse file now button.
    Post scan results.
    If the result says 0/42, you don't have to post logs.

    Download TDSSKiller and save it to your Desktop.
    Extract its contents to your desktop and make sure TDSSKiller.exe (the contents of the zipped file) is on the Desktop itself, not within a folder on the desktop.
    Go to Start > Run (Or you can hold down your Windows key and press R) and copy and paste the following into the text field. (make sure you include the quote marks) Then press OK.

    "%userprofile%\Desktop\TDSSKiller.exe" -l C:\TDSSKiller.txt -v

    If it says "Hidden service detected" DO NOT type anything in. Just press Enter on your keyboard to not do anything to the file.
    When it is done, a log file should be created on your C: drive called TDSSKiller.txt please copy and paste the contents of that file here.

    ========================================================================

    Please download Profiles by noahdfear.

    * Save it to your desktop.
    * Double-click profiles.exe and post its log when you reply.

    I think i'll look into that combofix a bit more, kind of interested as to how it works. I may take some interest in how to take a closer look myself.

    Very good :)

    Please download OTC to your desktop. It'll remove most tools and logs we used so far. If any tool, file or folder (belonging to the program we have used) hasn't been deleted, please delete it manually.

    • Double-click OTC.exe to run it. (Vista and 7 users, please right click on OTC and select "Run as an Administrator")
    • Click on the CleanUp! button and follow the prompts.
    • You will be asked to reboot the machine to finish the Cleanup process, choose Yes. If it doesn't ask you to reboot, restart computer manually.
    • After the reboot all the tools we used should be gone.
    • The tool will delete itself once it finishes.

    =======================================================================

    I just noticed, that, you're running two AV programs, Avast and Microsoft Security Essentials.
    One of them has to go. Your choice.
    I assume, you're running Comodo firewall only?

    =========================================================================

    Print this post out, since you won't have an access to it, at some point.

    1. Open HijackThis.

    2. Close all windows, except for HijackThis.

    3. Put checkmarks next to the following HijackThis entries:

    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {5C255C8A-E604-49b4-9D64-90988571CECB} - (no file)
    O2 - BHO: Java(tm) Plug-In 2 SSV Helper - {DBC80044-A445-435b-BC74-9C25C1C588A9} - C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin\jp2ssv.dll



    4. Click on Fix checked button.

    5. Restart computer.

    6. Post new HijackThis log.

    If you want to use a whole Comodo suite (AV + Firewall), you need to uninstall both, MSE and Avast.

    Post fresh HJT log, when you're ready.
    We're almost done. Everything looks good :)

    OK, but what's the story regarding Avast/Comodo?
     
  21. wyrmwraith

    wyrmwraith TS Rookie Topic Starter Posts: 23

    I've gone ahead and reinstalled both, Avast as resident scanner and Comodo as resident firewall.

    3. Click on System Protection under the Tasks column on the left side
    4. Click on Continue on the "User Account Control" window that pops up

    wyrmwraith TS Rookie Topic Starter Posts: 23

    Overall the computer seems a lot more responsive. WOT sounds like a good idea so i'll get that installed. Only thing that is of concern to me now is the sound of constant hard drive activity so i'll run some tests on the drive and see how that's going. Been a big help as I wouldn't have been able to identify infection otherwise. Thank you.
