Hi bnkridy,

Thanks for the logs, they help in so far as they throw no new light on the problem.

This post is entitled Back to Basics. :)

The way that I understand it is that you have had a series of unexplained events such as no internet connection and the inability to run some programs, this problem is only in Leanna's account. Investigation by several facilities proved non-effective but Ewido threw up an infection called HIJACKER.COSTRAT.E – I assume that it deleted this infection as you can find nothing in the quarantine element of Ewido.

You can run everything as normal from both Gale's account and Rich's account except that Rich's account does not appear when in Safe mode

  1. The first phase of Back2Basics is to check what the computer thinks the account status to be – only Computer administrator accounts appear in Safe mode. The next is to downgrade Leannas old account to Limited and rename it and finally create a new account for Leanna.
  2. Please boot to Safe mode and log on using the Administrator account
    1. From the Control Panel select User Accounts
      • Confirm that Rich is set as a Computer administrator – amend the account if that is not the case
      • Similarly that Leanna is set to Computer administrator – rename Leanna to Trial and change the type to Limited if you can
      • Create a new account for Leanna – OK you are going to have to set it up again as you want it to be, if this works!
    2. Please advise the outcome of each of the previous stages.
  3. Finally boot back to Normal mode and check out what limitations there are with the new Leanna account, hopefully there are none.
  4. Please post back with the results, good or bad

Yes, Rich is set as administrator, but still does not show as a log-in option in SafeMode.

I renamed Leanna to TRIAL and reset it to Limited.

The Leanna2 account seems normal: the desktop is back, I can reset the home page, I can d/l stuff from the internet, and I can add links to favorites, and pin shortcuts to the start page.

The ONLY problem I see is there is a strange little star on the bottom task bar that says "you may be a victim of software counterfeiting" and seems to think my WIN XP licence is not valid.

Hi bnkridy,

All of our efforts have been slanted towards finding the malware giving you your problems, I guess that you had this COSTRAT.E problem, it did its damage and was then removed by Ewido, leaving us with apparent and real symptoms of continuing infection.

The change in account was an attempt to see whether the problems stop or migrate to the new account so it is early days yet to pronounce 'fixed' so I would like to leave as is (almost) for about 14 days to see whether anything develops…

In 7 days time I would like you to delete the TRIAL account to determine whether the deletion triggers any problems, I assume that you have brought across to the new Leanna account any personal documents and information from TRIAL.

Your Star problem is probably as a result of the installation of Microsoft's Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) tool whose aim is to detect illegal software, illegality can be caused by many things, somebody has used your genuine key to activate other copies of Windows is one example – the installation of the WGA tool probably occurred with the installation of kb905474 under the automatic update schema that they recommend. More information can be found here

The way I understand it is that if you click the star, it will tell you what to do to get the validity of your version checked and, if you are an innocent party in a fraud, I believe that they will give you another key to re-validate your copy. I would suggest that you follow this course of action if you believe that you are using a fully valid copy of windows. As you are fully patched, I see no reason to doubt the validity.

Now on to a bit of housekeeping

  1. Open Task Manager > Ctrl+Alt+Del and click on the processes tab. Click the Image Name title to sort the entries alphabetically. Scroll down through the list and right-click on these files if found, selecting End Process from the options
    • OTMNM.exe
    • VXFJMVWIGVEE.exe
    Close Task Manager
  2. Please download PocketKillbox by Option^Explicit Software from here
    1. Click the Killbox.zip file and choose Extract
    2. I suggest you extract it to its own folder on your desktop
    C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\OTMNM.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\VXFJMVWIGVEE.exe
  3. Open the folder and click to open killbox.exe
    1. Click on Delete on Reboot.
    2. Place a tick in the box next to End Explorer Shell While Killing File
    3. Copy the text from the quote box above to the clipboard
    4. From the Killbox menu bar select File and Paste from Clipboard . The two paths will appear in the box headed Full Path of File to Delete NOTE: If they do not show or you get a message like 'Empty Array' then the files no longer exist so you can close Killbox
    5. Click the Delete File button, a red circle with a white X
    6. Click Yes at the confirmation message that files will be deleted on next reboot
    7. Click Yes to reboot.
    8. Click OK at any PendingFileRenameOperations prompt (and please let me know if you receive this message!).

      If your computer does not restart automatically, please restart it manually.
    9. After rebooting, open up Killbox again. Click File -> Logs -> Actions History Log
  4. I note that you have CCleaner installed so I would like you to finish with a CCleaner scan, I have shown below the setup that I use when running CCleaner.
    1. Click on the CCleaner icon on your desktop.
    2. From the menu on the left select Options
    3. Now select Advanced. On the right remove the check against Only delete files in Windows Temp folders older than 48 hours.
    4. Select Cookies. When CCleaner is run it will remove all of the cookies in the left window; if there are cookies that you wish to retain then select them and transfer them to the right window. Multiple selections can be made by holding down the Ctrl key before selecting.
    5. Select Cleaner from the left menu and the Windows tab
      • Under Internet Explorer place ticks in all but the last box
      • Under Windows Explorer tick the last two only
      • Under System tick all boxes
      • There is no need to tick anything under Advanced
  5. Post the Killbox log in your next reply together with a new HijackThis log for LEANNA.

Ok, I marked my calendar to remove TRIAL next week. I also made the changes to CCleaner you directed, and checked TaskManager for the two processes (but didn't find them).

Here is the Killbox Log. I ran each line separately, and did receive the "PendingFileRenameOperationRegistry" warning when the second file was deleted.

Hi bnkridy,

We are definitely getting there!

Because you run Ewido from the TRIAL account (old Leanna) it must be uninstalled before you remove the TRIAL account, please reinstall C:\Program Files I believe is the default installation path.

I would now like you to boot into Safe mode and navigate to C:\WINDOWS\TEMP, locate and delete the VXFJMVWIGVEE.exe file if it is still there, it is just possible that CCleaner took care of it!

Reboot back to Normal. Now we will check to see if there are any other files lurking by running an online scanner through your system

Please do an online scan with Kaspersky Online Scanner You must use Internet Explorer for this scan.
  1. Click on Kaspersky Online Scanner
  2. You will be prompted to install an ActiveX component from Kaspersky, Click Yes .
  3. The program will launch and then start to download the latest definition files.
  4. Once the scanner is installed and the definitions downloaded, click Next.
  5. Now click on Scan Settings and ensure that the following are selected:
    • Under Scan using the following Anti-Virus database:
      • Extended (If available otherwise Standard)
    • Under Scan Options:
      • Scan Archives
      • Scan Mail Bases
  6. Click OK
  7. Now under select a target to scan select My Computer
  8. The scan will take a while so be patient and let it run. Once the scan is complete it will display if your system has been infected.
  9. Now click on the Save as Text button:
  10. Save the file to your desktop.
  11. Copy and paste that information in your next post.

I posted a reply over an hour ago, but it doesn't show as yet. I hope this is not a duplicate! Anyway, I uninstalled/reinstalled Ewido under C:Programs.
I was not able to find the file VXFJMVWIGVEE.exe.

Hi bnkridy,

Kaspersky has thrown up a few more warnings, 2 in Rich's account and 2 associated with your ISP Comcast as highlighted in the quote box
C:\Documents and Settings\Rich.DESKTOP\.jpi_cache\jar\1.0\ms0311.jar-4034d181-5b400d06.zip/Installer.class Infected: Trojan-Downloader.Java.Agent.a skipped
C:\Documents and Settings\Rich.DESKTOP\.jpi_cache\jar\1.0\ms0311.jar-4034d181-5b400d06.zip ZIP: infected - 1 skipped

C:\Program Files\Comcast\ComcastToolbar.exe/data0055 Infected: not-a-virus:AdWare.Win32.BHO.al skipped
C:\Program Files\Comcast\ComcastToolbar.exe NSIS: infected - 1 skipped


  1. Dealing with Rich's account first, there is no cause for alarm as these flagged items are designed to attack weaknesses in the Microsoft Virtual Machine but, because you use Java, they pose no threat to you at all but to prevent your anti-virus program throwing up periodic warnings, I suggest that you remove them.

    You can remove them by logging in to Rich and then opening the Java plug-in from the Control Panel, selecting the Cache tab and then clicking on Clear to delete the contents of the cache.
  2. The Comcast ISP has a toolbar that is, to be fair, an optional installation, the trouble is they do not tell you that when you take that option you also install a facility for Adware, in your case I would think it is the weather that you get with it. I would recommend that you uninstall the Comcast toolbar and remove the program Weather, optional instructions follow.

    To uninstall the toolbar, please click here and follow the online instructions
  3. With regards the program called Weather, this used to be a definite program to remove as it came bundled with Adware and was possibly installed along with the Comcast toolbar which at the very least makes it fall into the category of 'foistware' - programs installed without your knowledge. The latest version does now appear to be clear of adware but I am always careful of apparent changes in a programs status as it is easily enough to revert to bad old ways and the fact that you are offering a download of weather every time that you use it means that your computer could easily be compromised.

    I recommend that you change it to a safer program. If you decide to remove the weather program then
    1. Please go to Add or Remove programs within Control Panel, click on WeatherBug and then Remove
    2. Navigate to C:\Program Files, locate and delete the AWS directory together with its contents.
    3. If you need weather updates then I would suggest Weather Pulse as a safer alternative.
  4. You do have another not recommended program in that you use AOL's Instant Messenger – AIM. This again is another well known avenue for the hackers and I would suggest that you use TRILLIAN instead; this is a safer option and will allow you to communicate with all of your AOL contacts as well as other chat networks; if you wish to try it then download it here.
  5. Hopefully to finish with the new Leanna account, you do have some resource hogs starting when windows starts, they can all be started if-and-when required rather than automatically so I have shown them in the HijackThis fix but stress that they are entirely optional as are the first two entries. I personally do not like the way in which AOL takes over the computer and I wish to choose my own Search and Start pages but that is a personal choice.

    Start your HijackThis and click on Scan
    1. Click in the check-box to the left of each of the following entries, if found
      • R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://channels.aimtoday.com/search/aimtoolbar.jsp
      • R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://www.comcast.net/home.html
      • O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [asp4tray] asp4tray.exe
      • O4 - Global Startup: EPSON Background Monitor.lnk = C:\ESM2\Stms.exe
      • O4 - Global Startup: Adobe Reader Speed Launch.lnk = C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Reader\reader_sl.exe

        If you switch to Trillian then you can also check this one as well
      • O9 - Extra button: AIM - {AC9E2541-2814-11d5-BC6D-00B0D0A1DE45} - C:\Documents and Settings\Leanna_2\My Documents\AIM\aim.exe
    2. With all windows closed except HijackThis, select Fix Checked
  6. Please post a new HijackThis log for Leanna's and then an up-to-date one for Rich. Please advise how the computer is behaving now – is the star still there in the SysTray?

I had a few problems following your instructions. First, I was unable to remove the Comcast toolbar, so I have emailed them to ask for further instructions.

Second, I did not find Weatherbug in the Control Panel list of programs to remove, so I did it manually, including the AWS directory...hope that is ok.

I will check with my daughter on if she is willing to switch from AIM to Trillian.

The "star" in the SysTray is gone now. The computer seems to run ok, but a bit slow.

One question: Should I clean the JAVA cache periodically? I do that to the AOL cache every few weeks...

Quickie response before I look at the logs.

Well done on emailing Comcast, if you had any browser windows open other than the link one then that might, just might, have prevented the toolbar being removed, I assume that the toolbar is still visible ....

Were there any programs named weather?

Can not give you a definitive answer to the Java cache as I have no add-ins to check, but if you remember that the function of a cache is to provide a pool of information that is supposed to speed up your browsing rather than having to do a fresh download each time...

Finally Trillian is another way of accessing AIM, Yahoo, MSN etc she will lose nothing by using it, have a look at the write-up on the link.

Back to have a look at the logs :D

Yes, we have Weatherbug (but I removed it and will try Weather Pulse). I will also check out Trillian.

What have you done with mcaffee, it is not showing - were the logs done in Normal or Safe mode? :)

Oops! gosh you're fast! Yesterday, after I did the Kaspersky scan, I wanted to delete the items it found, but the online scanner wouldn't work...so I d/l their 30 day free trial. In order to do that, though, it wanted me to delete McAfee, which I did (I hate McAfee anyway). Today, I am going to reinstall McAfee.

One question for you, I d/l Weather pulse, but it will not run under Leanna or Rich...is there some program limitation I need to know about?
