I'll wait for the reports :)

Since you didn't update this pc for a long time, there should be a lot of updates.
Is there a way to determine?

Does the warning sign on your pc shows something like critical updates for your pc are about to install? Just click here to update?
If yes those should be the microsoft updates. Go for them after you run my last CF Script. You can let the pc updating while you are doing something else.
You should go ahead and update, because those updates, covers security holes from previous ones.
You can also visit microsoft to get them if you are not sure about your pc warning.
I was going to post a link to Microsoft but i can't get connected to their site today.

Hello bwick,

I want to ask you something. I am wondering about this from the "by mistake" deletion of your Dialer program.
In your first Combofix report, your Dialer program shows installed on

2008-03-24 C:\Program Files\Dialer

That was 2 days after the infection attacked your pc.

Most of the infected files shows installed on 2008-03-22 so, i keep wondering how did you get infected if this pc couldn't connect to the Internet before 2008-03-24 ?

However used this pc to view some files loaded via utorrent on another pc.

Was that date 2008-03-22 the day you viewed these files?
If yes it means the other pc is infected too.

And if yes, are both pcs connected or did you transfer the files using a Flash Drive?

In fact I did connect to internet via dialup but it was very breif period and did not have time to download updates (just 30 minutes @ 46k via v90 modem). I had briefly visited internet around 21-22 March, but cannot remember exact date. However this infected pc was never used for p2p. and the one used for p2p well updated with virus as well as windows security patches seems working fine.

Now for the latest log files

As for the installation of dialer program I have been using it since Nov 2007 and did occasional access to the internet as well as corporate network. No idea how it shows installed on 24th March which I never did on that particular day.

Whenever I am internet, ms updates show 'downloading updates 18%' . Just to see if running processes are genuine I have taken another Hjt log while on the internet with downloading percentage being shown.

Hello bwick,

Yes the last HijackThis you posted shows that Microsoft updates are on! This is the process which shows that, so you should know.

C:\WINDOWS\system32\wuauclt.exe

It will take time because you are on dial up. Better update it often, set a certain day of the week, and you'll be warned to download them.
----------------------------------------------
I am glad to see you Combofix report is clean at last.

Now i want you to run a scan, just to make sure that everything is fine. If it's needed we'll run another one, but that takes longer, and you are on dial-up, so lets go with this one for now.
----------------------------------------------
Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to your desktop.

  • Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  • At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select Perform full scan, then click Scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When completed, a log will open in Notepad. Please save it to a convenient location.
  • The log can also be found here:
    C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs\mbam-log-date (time).txt
  • Post that log back here.
----------------------------------------------
I can't see any firewall in your reports. Do you have McAfee security suite which includes a firewall too? Let me know in your next post please.

Hello bwick,

Everything look fine now :).
----------------------------------------------
I can see McAfee Anti-Virus in your reports, but not a firewall.

I can't see any firewall in your HijackThis log, so i assume you use windows firewall.

FIREWALL
Without a firewall your computer is susceptible to being hacked and taken over. If you use the Windows Firewall you might think that's sufficient but it only controls one way of the traffic (inbound). Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly. It's preferable to install one of the suggested firewalls.
Vista users, must check compatibility with Vista before installation.

FREE FIREWALLS
Tutorial about Firewalls can be found here
----------------------------------------------
You can keep Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware as it's a very good scanner, you can scan your pc occassionally. If you don't want to keep it just uninstall it.
----------------------------------------------
Time for some housekeeping
  • Click START then RUN
  • Now type Combofix /u in the runbox and click OK
  • Image
The above procedure will:
  • Delete the following:
    • ComboFix and its associated files and folders.
    • VundoFix backups, if present
    • The C:\Deckard folder, if present
    • The C:_OtMoveIt folder, if present
  • Reset the clock settings.
  • Hide file extensions, if required.
  • Hide System/Hidden files, if required.
  • Reset System Restore.
----------------------------------------------
Congratulations you are clean! :cheers:
Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:

Here are some free programs I recommend that could help you improve your computer's security.
(Vista users must ensure that any programs are Vista compatible BEFORE installing)

Spybot Search and Destroy 1.5.2
Download it from here. Just choose a mirror and off you go.
Find here the tutorial on how to use Spybot properly here
Find here changes from older version 1.4 here

Install SpyWare Blaster 4.0
Download it from here
Find here the tutorial on how to use Spyware Blaster here

Install WinPatrol
Download it from here
Here you can find information about how WinPatrol works here

Install FireTrust SiteHound
You can find information and download it from here

Install MVPS Hosts File from here
The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your computer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer.
Find Tutorial here : http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm

Update your Antivirus programs and other security products regularly to avoid new threats that could infect your system.
You can use one of these sites to check if any updates are needed for your pc.
Secunia Software Inspector
F-secure Health Check

Visit Microsoft often to get the latest updates for your computer.
