Program deleting registry file, KEEPS COMING BACK (DUPE)

Unread postby tyler1984 » January 16th, 2009, 3:41 pm

Last week, I clicked on a setup file and Spyware Guard 2008 came up and tried to scan my computer. I could instantly tell something wasn't right. I did numerous scans with Malware Bytes, Spybot and Registry Mechanic. Within a few hours, I had the program disabled and removed. I haven't had any major problems with my computer since. However, I have noticed a program is always checked in msconfig-startup. I uncheck it every time I start my computer, and the delete it from the registry. Sometimes I leave it checked on startup and delete it from the registry in case that would work. I've also tried to delete it from the registry in safe mode. The thing is, it will almost instantly come back. If I close regedit and reopen it and search, it will be right there in the same spot. I've also used Hijack This to remove the file twice, and on subsequent searches it came right back in Hijack This' search list. The name of the file that I've been talking about is:

Tzaka

Its command in msconfig is:

rundll32.exe "C:\WINDOWS\Tzaka.dll",e

Located in:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

The file is also associated, or in the "folder" of something called:

Obotinexil

This is the folder that has all the registry values to allow it to startup every time Windows runs (or at least that's what I'm guessing).

Sometimes there are two entries of Tzaka in msconfig, one near the top of the list is always checked, while the one near the bottom isn't. Usually, just the one checked file is listed in msconfig.

Just to recap:

I can't remove this file, I've deleted it about 50 times, and I've ran numerous scans. I believe it to possibly be associated with Spyware Guard 2008 which got on my computer last week, but my computer is running okay since I got rid of everything or most everything associated with Spyware Guard 2008, just the reoccurrence of the Tzaka file in the registry and msconfig-startup concerns me.

Below I will post a Hijack This logfile.

Thank you very much for any help you may provide.
