backdoor-awq problem that won't go away

Unread postby madlaxskillz » December 6th, 2007, 10:46 pm

About 2-3 days ago my Mcafee started detecting C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Speech\WAB46.dll and said it was backdoor-awq. The darn thing kept popping up. I couldn't clean/delete/quarantine it. It wouldn't allow me to open new windows or anything. I even tried ctrl+alt+delete, it wouldn't show. I wound up manually shutting down and started it in safe mode. I went directly to the folder C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Speech, right clicked it and pressed scan. Mcafee said it was gone, then I scanned it with trendmicro house call, it didn't pick up anything. I started in normal mode and it kept popping up again with Mcafee. It's very annoying. I seem to be ok in safe mode. I scanned it again with trendmicro, it picked up and called it TROJ_HUPIGON.LAD. It couldn't clean it. No matter what I do it won't go away. Everytime I think i've gotten rid of the wab46.dll, it just keeps coming back in normal mode. I used a-squared security center, it didn't pick it up in it's scan. I uninstalled Mcafee in safe mode because it got really annoying.

Edit:
I went to the folder containing the wab46.dll, I had the folder show hidden files and stuff so I could see what was in it. There was the wab46.dll and a svchost.exe. Both with the description Entertainment Pack Cardplaying Helper DLL and copyright with Microsoft. I doubt the Microsoft part is true though. What should I do?

Please someone help me get rid of this cursed thing.
Here's the hijackthislog.
