  1. Hi, I have recently been having troubles with online accounts being hacked, and having passwords constantly changed. I think I may have a keylogger but have not been able to find any malware with multiple malware finding programs. If anyone would be able to look at the log attached and let me know if there are any problems that would be great! Thanks!

    Hi chadbrochill,

    You are correct that you have malware on your computer, here they are broken down into groups. Check each to be deleted after the preformed scan.

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [calc] rundll32.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\calc.dll,_IWMPEvents@0

    Other Malicious software:
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [calc] rundll32.exe C:\DOCUME~1\Angel\ntuser.dll,_IWMPEvents@0
    O4 - HKUS\S-1-5-18\..\Run: [calc] rundll32.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\SYSTEM~1\ntuser.dll,_IWMPEvents@0 (User 'SYSTEM')
    O4 - HKUS\S-1-5-18\..\Run: [ttool] C:\WINDOWS\9129837.exe (User 'SYSTEM')
    O4 - HKUS\.DEFAULT\..\Run: [calc] rundll32.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\SYSTEM~1\ntuser.dll,_IWMPEvents@0 (User 'Default user')
    O7 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System, DisableRegedit=1

    Now this does not mean that the possible keylogger was detected. This just shows the malware on your computer that could be the keylogger.

    Hey, thanks for the reply, but I'm not able to see any of the malware you listed within my log, is there something I am missing?

    Re-scan your system using Hijackthis and when those couple come up, check them off to delete them.

    After you have preformed a scan and it comes up with the malware, these do not exist? NOTE: They are not exactly in order like that.

    When i perform the scan I don't see any of those, I've reattached the log in case there was some sort of error previously.

    You computer no longer has the viruses I listed before but have 3 possible viruses:

    O2 - BHO: WormRadar.com IESiteBlocker.NavFilter - {3CA2F312-6F6E-4B53-A66E-4E65E497C8C0} - (no file)
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {5C255C8A-E604-49b4-9D64-90988571CECB} - (no file)
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {A3BC75A2-1F87-4686-AA43-5347D756017C} - (no file)

    These files could be malware but are classified as:

    These can probably be left but it is up to you whether you want to delete them. Otherwise, the major viruses are gone. :D

    Thank you.

    P2P or 'file sharing Warning
    I see that you are using:
    Even if you are using a "safe" P2P program, it is only the program that is safe. I suggest that you uninstall Ares for the following reasons:
    • As long as you are using file sharing networks and programs which are from sources that are not documented, you cannot verity that a download is legitimate.
    • Malware writers use these program to include malicious content.
    • Fie sharing is usually unmonitored and there is a danger that your private files might be accessed.
    • The 'sharing' also includes malware that the shared system has on it.
    • Files that are illegal can be spread through file sharing.

    Please read the information on P2P Warning to help you better understand these dangers.

    Please reopen HijackThis to 'do system scan only.' Check each of the following if present: (Optionals are in green)

    C:\Documents and Settings\Matt\Desktop\Ares.exe> Optional P2P
    R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - *{CFBFAE00-17A6-11D0-99CB-00C04FD64497} - (no file)

    R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {A3BC75A2-1F87-4686-AA43-5347D756017C} - (no file)
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [ares] "C:\Documents and Settings\Matt\Desktop\Ares.exe" -h> Optional P2P

    For the following: is this for 'Internet Download Accelerator'? If No, remove.Was download from Ares or a torrent site? If Yes, check for removal:

    C:\Program Files\Ida\Ida.exe
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Ida] "C:\Program Files\Ida\IdaLaunch.exe" -tray

    O18 - Protocol: linkscanner - {F274614C-63F8-47D5-A4D1-FBDDE494F8D1} - (no file)>
