some wierd virus i guess...

By sungod
Oct 26, 2005
  1. i couldnt open my task manager so i downloaded security task manager.

    it shows 2 files name is:
    name is: process id 1812
    and the text within the files says Error: The system cannot find the file specified.
    well its there cause its running a process....

    name is: proccess id 3356
    Error: The system cannot find the file specified

    both of these when i try to kill process just come back somehow... i ran spyware doctor and it doesnt find anything...

    and then i have a process
    C:\Program Files\winupdates\winupdates.exe
    which seems to be wierd since it takes 93% of my cpu
    under the security rating it says functions: monitor and inpute data.

    my hjk log is:

    instead of ending simply the program.. right click on it and hit end process tree, that way it ends all programs connected to the malware or virus. then try to run norton or ad-aware

    It does not look like you have an anti-virus program installed, download AVG free: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download886.html

    C:\Program Files\winupdates\winupdates.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [winupdates] C:\Program Files\winupdates\winupdates.exe /auto

    These 3 are bad ones and should be removed. First turn off your system restore, empty your recycle bin, and remove any temp internet files (IE/Tools Menu/Internet Options/Temorary Internet Files/Delete Files button.

    Then put a check mark next to the 3 items above and select fix items in HJT.

    Reboot and turn your system restore back on.
