Hi WinBMY,
There is a Very Dangerous Infection on this machine. It allows outsiders COMPLETE access to every keystroke, account, and password used while on this machine, and complete access to any other data present...
IF this computer has been used for any kind of important data, my best recommendation is to :
  • Disconnect from Internet
  • Re-Format the entire drive
  • Re-Install your Operating system and Applications.
We can likely clean the infected files off the computer, and if you wish we will attempt to do so, but we cannot be sure that the infection didn't do something to your system to corrupt the system security. In that instance, even after removal of the infection, you could be subject to another attack or takeover by remote control as soon as you re-connect to the Internet.

The Decision Whether to ReFormat or Not should be based on:
  • The use of the computer - this is the primary factor in the decision whether to re-format and re-install, or just disinfect.
  • The variety of malware - this influences the decision on whether to re-format and re-install, or just disinfect.
    IN THIS CASE we have a Remote Access Trojan, the worst kind.
If the Computer has been used for any important data, you are strongly advised to do the following, immediately:
  • Disconnect the infected computer from the internet and from any networked computers until the computer can be cleaned.
  • Back up all important data on the machine. Do not back up any Applications (programs). Those should be re-installed from the original source CDs or websites.
  • If you have ever used this computer for shopping, banking, or any transactions relating to your financial well being:
    Call all of your banks, credit card companies, and financial institutions, informing them that you may be a victim of identity theft, and to put a watch on your accounts or change all your account numbers.
  • From a clean computer, change ALL your online passwords -- for ISP login, email, banks, financial accounts, PayPal, eBay, online companies, and any online forums or groups you belong to.
  • DO NOT change passwords or do any transactions while using the infected computer because the attacker will get the new password and transaction information.
  • Take any other steps you think appropriate for an attempted identity theft.
Other information that may be useful :Please let me know what you decide.

If you want to try and remove the infection, start here:
-----------------------------------------------------------
Uninstall one of the two firewalls. The log is showing both Kerio and Sygate.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Download SDFix and save it to your Desktop.

Double click SDFix.exe and choose Install to extract it to its own folder on the Desktop. Please then reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press "Enter".
  • Choose your usual account.
  • In Safe Mode, right click the SDFix.zip folder and choose Extract All,
  • Open the extracted folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
  • Type Y to begin the script.
  • It will remove the Trojan Services then make some repairs to the registry and prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
  • Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
  • Your system will take longer that normal to restart as the fixtool will be running and removing files.
  • When the desktop loads the Fixtool will complete the removal and display Finished, then press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
  • Finally open the SDFix folder on your desktop and copy and paste the contents of the results file Report.txt back onto the forum with a new HijackThis log. Please do not edit the log in any way before you post it.

WinBMY,
Print out these instructions or save to a notepad file on your desktop, as you will not be able to get to the Internet to view them during part of this procedure.

-----------------------------------------------------------
Download and install CCleaner from here.
Set Options in CCleaner and run Cleaning Scan. Open the CCleaner program.
( Do not use the Issues block to clean anything with this program. It is for experts only and it is risky).
  • Select all Temp Files for Removal.
    Click on the Options block on the left. Select Advanced.
    Uncheck "Only delete files in Windows Temp folders older than 48 hours".
  • Clear the Prefetch Folder. Click on the Custom button.
    Click Add Folder. When the dialog comes up, go find C:\Windows\Prefetch\ and click OK.
    A warning will come up saying that the folder will be emptied upon cleaning. Are you sure, etc. Click Yes.
  • Run Cleaning Scan. Click on the Cleaner block on the left. Choose the Windows tab.
    Check everything Except Autocomplete Form History and the Advanced part of the Menu. Click the Run Cleaner button. This process could take a while. When CCleaner shows how much has been removed, cleaning is finished.
  • Reset Temp File Removal for Regular Use.
    Click on the Options block on the left. Select the Advanced button.
    Check "Only delete files in Windows Temp folders older than 48 hours".
  • Reset Prefetch Folder.Click on the Custom button. In the pane titled Custom Files and Folders to Clean, highlight C:\Windows\prefetch\, and click Remove Selected. A message will come up to verify, Remove the entry?. Click Yes.
------------------------------------------------
Run AVG AntiSpyware Scan
launch AVG Anti-Spyware by double-clicking its icon on your desktop or in the system tray.
In the AVG Anti-Spyware Status Menu. Select the Update button and click Start update. Wait until you see the "Update succesfull" message. Exit AVG Anti-Spyware when done - DO NOT perform a scan yet.

Reboot your computer in SAFE MODE using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup [but before the Windows icon appears] press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Scan with AVG Anti-Spyware as follows:
  • Launch AVG Anti-Spyware, click on the "Scanner" button and choose the "Settings" tab.
    - Under "How to act?", click on "Recommended actions" and choose "Quarantine" to set default action for detected malware.
    - Under "How to Scan?" check all (default).
    - Under "Possibly unwanted software" check all (default).
    - Under "What to Scan?" make sure "Scan every file" is selected (default).
    - Under "Reports" select "Automatically generate report after every scan" and UNcheck "Only if threats were found".
  • Click the "Scan" tab to return to scanning options.
  • Click "Complete System Scan" to start.
    Note: Close all open windows, programs, and DO NOT USE the computer while AVG Anti-Spyware is scanning. If Explorer or other programs are open during the scan that means certain files will also be in use. Some malware will insert itself and hide in areas that are "protected" by Windows when the files are being used. This can hamper AVG Anti-Spyware's ability to clean properly and may result in reinfection.
  • When the scan has finished you will be presented with a list of infected objects found. Click "Apply all actions" to place the files in Quarantine.
    IMPORTANT! Do not save the report before you have clicked the Apply all actions button. If you do, the log that is created will indicate "No action taken", making it more difficult to interpret the report. So be sure you save it only AFTER clicking the "Apply all actions" button.
  • Click on "Save Report" to view all completed scans. Click on the most recent scan you just performed and select "Save report as" - the default file name will be in date/time format as follows: Report-Scan-20061031-090001.txt. Save to your desktop. A copy of each report will also be saved in C:\Program Files\Grisoft\AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5\Reports\
  • Exit AVG Anti-Spyware when done.


Open the report with Notepad and paste a copy into your next reply.

WinBMY,
Good idea of yours to keep it off the internet until we are done.
I believe the infection has been cleared.
Now to remove parts of the infection that were saved in System Restore files, and add a few protective settings.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Disable WinXP System Restore
Disable your System Restore to remove malware files that have been backed up by Windows. The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programs changing them. The only way to erase these files is to temporarily disable System Restore. You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected.
- Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
- On the System Restore tab, put a Check mark in the Turn Off System Restore check box.
- Click OK twice, and then click Yes when you are prompted to restart the computer.
If you are not prompted to reboot, do it on your own.
-----------------------------------------------------------
After the Reboot,
Enable WinXP System Restore
- Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
- On the System Restore tab, Clear the Check mark beside the Turn Off System Restore check box.

Download and Install a HOSTS File
A Hosts file is a plain text file which prevents your computer from inadvertently connecting to malware, spyware and adware sites by redirecting the connection request back to your own machine address (127.0.0.1).
If you use a proxy server, or if you are on AOL, or if you use Norton to scan e-mail, be sure to read the special instructions.

BlueTack's HOSTS Manager is here:
http://www.bluetack.co.uk/forums/index.php?act=dscript&CODE=showdetails&f_id=5
If you download and install it first, you can use it to handle your HOSTS file download, edits, and most any other HOSTS issue.

Download and Read an excellent instruction about HOSTS files (the Bluetack version) here:
http://www.bluetack.co.uk/forums/index.php?showtopic=8406
Be sure to read the note about disabling the service "DNS Client" when using large HOSTS files, to avoid slowdowns.

If you have a firewall, you may have to give permission to Unlock the present default HOSTS file before you copy / install the new one.
You may also have to give additional permission during installation of the new one.
