Help with 1rfw8hjr.com trojan? Cannot see hidden files??

Unread postby samaudio » September 1st, 2008, 5:31 am

Hi all,

Firstly my problem is that I seem to have been infected with this "1rfw8hjr.com" trojan. Kesperky picked it up and killed it, along with ckvo.exe I believe....

Something is making autorun.inf files and kk3.bat files on every drive that goes into the system too - they are hidden on win xp, but I can see them and delete them from my laptop running Mac OSX...but none of the scanners will find what is making them!!

Which brings me to my next weirdness, I cannot set my folders to view hidden files, or uncheck the 'hide hidden operating system files' box either from the tools menu OR via the registry. I also cannot change the autorun policy to off (DWORD= HEX FF) in the registry either.....i change the value - close regedit - and bam everything reverts to hidden with autorun enabled for all drives...

Any help would be much appreciated - this is my work machine and I need to be able to see hidden files every day for settings!!!

Here is my HJT log for starters

Due to lack of response this topic is now closed.

If you still need help open a new thread in the Malware Removal forum and wait for a new helper.
