  1. This person has hacked all the players in this multiplayer game we play called delta force 2 demo. Whenever we try to host, a blue screen comes up. You can barely see where normally it displays who is joining etc... profanity words etc. I noticed I have alot winlgon processes sometimes. I also noticed in the user area in control panel there was a passport email address registered as a user that I did not recognize. In the event log i seen where winlogn is directed to another file on system 32.. any Idea whats going on? I would appreciate any help you may give me..thanks

    After you have finished these instructions, go and install some antivirus and firewall protection as in this thread HERE.

    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.>

    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.>

    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).

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: wineij32 - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\wineij32.dll

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    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.

    This is the filepath you need to enter into killbox.


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

    Install the antivirus and firewall protection and do a full system scan as per the instructions in the link I gave you. Install and run the AVG Antispyware programme and run it(intructions in the link).

    Post fresh HJT and AVG antispyware logs and let me know if you`re still having problems.

    Regards Howard :)
