Hi SnoopDogg,

Before we do anything, please shutdwon/exit SpySweeper temporarly as it is interfering with the fix. Make sure it is not running and then do the following...

1. Open HijackThis
- Click the Do a system scan only button
- Check the following entries (below)

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [runner1] C:\WINDOWS\retadpu41.exe 61A847B5BBF72816338B2B27128065E9C085320161C4661227A755E9D29064183387384A72E512

- Close ALL open windows (especially Internet Explorer!)
- Click Fix Checked
Close HiajckThis

2. Run HijackThis again and click on Open the Misc Tools section.
Click on Delete a file on reboot...
Copy and paste the following into the "File name:" text box and then click Open:

C:\WINDOWS\retadpu41.exe

When you are asked "Do you want to restart your computer now?", click OK.

Your PC MUST reboot to delete the file!

1. I cant update my windows ... problem occured everytime i tried to update it. (the send 'report error/dont send' thingy poped up)

Are you using Internet Explorer?

2. I cant seem to change my Home Page address. I dont know what happened, but the current one is http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dl ... ar=msnhome and i cant change it to any other addresses.

Try now since SpySweeper is not running.

Please post a new HijackThis log, and let me know how things are.

Hmmm...not sure what's causing this.

Download this file to your Desktop - combofix.exe
Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Post that log in your next reply

Note:
Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall

Hi SnoopDogg! A little left to do.

Please do the following...

1. Backup Your Registry with ERUNT
  • Please use the following link and scroll down to ERUNT and download it.
    http://aumha.org/freeware/freeware.php
  • For version with the Installer:
    Use the setup program to install ERUNT on your computer
  • For the zipped version:
    Unzip all the files into a folder of your choice.
Click Erunt.exe to backup your registry to the folder of your choice.

Note: to restore your registry, go to the folder and start ERDNT.exe

2. Open Notepad!
Copy and Paste everything from the Quote box into Notepad:

REGEDIT4

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\shared tools\msconfig\startupreg\msvccc66]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\shared tools\msconfig\startupreg\staeck122]



Go to File > Save As
Save File name as Fix.reg
Change Save as Type to All Files and save the file to your desktop.

Close Notepad, and double-click Fix.reg on your Desktop. When it asks if you want to merge the info to the registry, hit YES/OK

3. Run HijackThis and click on Open the Misc Tools section.
Click on Delete a file on reboot...
Copy and paste the following into the "File name:" text box and then click Open:

C:\Documents and Settings\nancy\2.exe

When you are asked "Do you want to restart your computer now?", click OK.

Your PC MUST reboot to delete the file!

4. Run ComboFix and it will produce a new log. Post that back here.

Now try Windows Update again.

Hi, thanks for the images.

I found out that the error has to do with: STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION

I think this has to do with either a hardware or driver problem, but not totally sure. Have you got the latest drivers for your computer?

Let me know, and then I'll some other people if they can help.

OK, you're welcome! :)

Here are some tips for a clean and scure computer.

For XP users.
It's a good idea to Flush your System Restore points after ridding yourself of malware. You can clean this by doing the following:

  • Click Start | Help and Support | Undo changes to your computer with System Restore.

Use an AntiVirus Software

It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future. See the link below for a listing of some online & their stand-alone antivirus programs.
Computer Safety On line - Anti-Virus
http://forum.malwareremoval.com/viewtopic.php?p=53#53

Update your Anti Virus Software

It is imperative that you update your Anti virus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your anti virus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

Use a Firewall

I can not stress enough how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is susceptible to being hacked and taken over. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly. For an article on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below.
