    Your system is infected with a trojan.

    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.


    If after reading the above you decide you want to clean your system, do the following.


    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, 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 :)

    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.

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how HERE.

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE.

    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.

    COM+ Messages

    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).

    svchosts.exe<Not to be confused with svchost.exe which is a legit file.
    wapiit.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).

    R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {5C61B14A-71FD-7D28-DA72-0E12E34EE0B7} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\apbyxffs.dll (file missing)

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {348FE907-249E-4C65-A838-F34A193FE1D1} - (no file)

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {5C61B14A-71FD-7D28-DA72-0E12E34EE0B7} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\apbyxffs.dll (file missing)

    O23 - Service: COM+ Messages - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchosts.exe" -e te-110-12-0000245 (file missing)

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

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

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchosts.exe<Not to be confused with svchost.exe which is a legit file.

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\wapiit.exe

    Reboot into normal mode and rehide your protected OS files.

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how HERE.

    Doing the above will delete all your restore points and the nasties that are in them.

    Once you`ve done that, turn system restore back on. This will create a new, clean restore point.

    Post a fresh HJT log and let me know how your system is running.

    Regards Howard :)
