Unread postby andy10614 » February 28th, 2009, 5:05 pm

Hiya guys,
I currently have a Windows XP desktop computer which is quite often slow, however i recently brought some more RAM for it, which did help in speeding it up alot.

However sometimes it becomes very slow for a short period of time, the process svchost.exe was taking more or less 90-100% of the cpu. (it is the network service of svchost.exe)

Here is the HJT report (Updated file names as requested,therefore a new log.) :

Hi! :hello2: and welcome to the Malware Removal forums.
My name is John Brouwer - if it helps, you can call me John for short. I'll be glad to help you with your computer problems.

HijackThis logs can take some time to research, so please be patient with me. I know that you need
your computer working as quickly as possible, and I will work hard to help see that happens.

These rules are good for you to know:
  • I will working be on your Malware issues, this may or may not, solve other issues you have with your machine.
  • The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.
  • It's often worth reading through these instructions and printing them for ease of reference.
  • If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to say or ask!! It's better to be sure and safe than sorry.
  • If you don't reply within five days after my last instructions this topic will be closed. If you will not be able to reply within five days please tell me how long it will take so the topic will not be closed.

These rules are to make my voluntary work more comfortable:
  • Please be patient. The work I do is voluntary and I also have a private life (school, work, friends and hobbies).
  • Please continue to review my answers until I tell you your machine appears to be clear. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.
  • Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
  • Also, don't post logs as attachments. Other helpers like to view the logs as well and opening a lot of attachments is irritating. It can also contain malware.

Finally, please make a uninstall list using HijackThis
To access the Uninstall Manager you would do the following:
  • Start HijackThis
  • Click on the Open The Misc Tool Section button
  • Click on the Open Uninstall Manager button.
  • Click on the Save list... button and specify where you would like to save this file. When you press Save button a notepad will open with the contents of that file. Save the file to your desktop and post the contents in a reply to this topic.

Regards,
John.

Hi Andy,

P.S. i have tried to remove "The Sims Unleashed" several times, all of which it has failed, not that I think this is what is causing the problem as i cannot find any of the files from the program on the computer.

We will work on this stuff after you are finishing the cleaning procedure.

There is nothing in your log that looks bad, so we will run two scans, but I think you are clean.

Step 1: Disable Ad-Aware Ad-Watch
Please disable Ad-Aware Ad-Watch as it may interfere with the fix.
  • Right click on the Ad-Watch icon in the system tray.
  • At the bottom of the screen there will be two checkable items called Active and Automatic.
    • Active: This will turn Ad-Watch On\Off without closing it.
    • Automatic: Suspicious activity will be blocked automatically.
  • Uncheck both of those boxes.
  • If you did not have those options there could be an option called Disable AdWatch-Live, so check that one.
Once your log is clean you can re-enable those settings in Ad-Aware.

Step 2: Disable Teatimer
Please disable Teatimer as it may interfere with the fix.
First:
  • Right click Spybot in the System Tray (looks like a calendar with a padlock symbol)
  • Choose Exit Spybot S&D Resident
Second:
  • Open Spybot S&D
  • Click Mode, check Advanced Mode
  • Go To Left Panel, Click Tools, then also in left panel, click Resident
  • If your firewall raises a question, say OK
  • Uncheck the box labeled Resident Tea-Timer and OK any prompts.
  • Use File, Exit to terminate Spybot
  • Reboot your machine for the changes to take effect.
Once your log is clean you can re-enable those settings in TeaTimer.

Step 3: Download and Run ATF Cleaner
Download ATF (Atribune Temp File) Cleaner© by Atribune to your desktop.

Double-click ATF Cleaner.exe to open it.

Under Main choose:
Windows Temp
Current User Temp
All Users Temp
Cookies
Temporary Internet Files
Prefetch
Java Cache

*The other boxes are optional*
Then click the Empty Selected button.

Firefox:
Click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click NO at the prompt.

Opera:
Click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click NO at the prompt.

Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.

Step 4: Download and Run 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
    • 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. Close the Notepad file.
  • The log file is saved here and will be named like this: C:\Documents and Settings\<your username>\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs\mbam-log-date (time).txt

Step 5: Reboot
To make sure MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware has finished completely and we can go on.

Step 6: Download and Run ComboFix
Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running the tool:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

Ensure you have disabled all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix. For information on how to disable your anti virus program please see this:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic114351.html

If your have Avast as anti virus an additional thing has to be changed to make ComboFix work properly:
Image

Go on with the ComboFix guide when it opens its log please close it.

Remember that the ComboFix log is saved here: C:\ComboFix.txt

Step 7: Post logs
Please post the following logs in a reply to this topic (use multiple posts if the logs are cut off):
  • New HijackThis log
  • MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware log
  • ComboFix log

Regards,
John.

Hi Andy,

There is one file that we need to research a little more.
C:\Qoobox\Quarantine\C\WINDOWS\system32\MDM.EXE.vir

  • Copy/Paste the file on the list into the white Upload a file box.
  • Click Send/Submit, and the file will upload to VirusTotal/Jotti, where it will be scanned by several anti-virus programmes.
  • After a while, a window will open, with details of what the scans found.

Post the complete results into a reply to this topic.

Regards,
John.

Hi Andy,

There is one more file which we need to know a little more about:
Please download SystemLook from one of the links below and save it to your desktop.
Download Mirror #1
Download Mirror #2
  • Double-click SystemLook.exe to run it.
  • Copy the content of the following codebox into the main textfield:
    Code: Select all
    :file
    C:\docume~1\SINGLE~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\naecd.sys
  • Click the Look button to start the scan.
  • When finished, a notepad window will open with the results of the scan. Please post that log. It can also be found on your desktop.

Regards,
John.

Hiya John, I downloaded SystemLook, however it didn't seem to be able to find the file you requested, also upon searching for the file throught the computer it wasn't found either.
Here is the log anyway:

Hi Andy,

Thanks for doing that. Does not matter if the file is not there.

Please open Notepad and copy/paste the text in the box into the window:

Code: Select all
http://www.malwareremoval.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=40363

Suspect::
C:\Qoobox\Quarantine\C\WINDOWS\system32\MDM.EXE.vir


Save this as "CFScript.txt", and as Type: All Files (*.*) in the same location as ComboFix.exe

Ensure you have disabled all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix. For information on how to disable your anti virus program please see this:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic114351.html

If your have Avast as anti virus an additional thing has to be changed to make ComboFix work properly:
Image

After doing that close any open browsers.

Image

Refering to the picture above, drag CFScript into ComboFix.exe

ComboFix will start scannning and when it opens its log please post that log.

Also let me know about any problems you still have with your computer. Tell me in as much detail as possible so that I have a clear view about what is happening.

Regards,
John.

Just to tell you, the problems seem to have stopped for a while, I will try to look out if it keeps happening again.

Thanks, Andy.

Hi Andy,

We will need to run a CFScript one more time, but this time I will not let it do the whole scan.

Open Notepad and copy/paste the text in the box into the window:

Code: Select all
DeQuarantine::
C:\Qoobox\Quarantine\C\WINDOWS\system32\MDM.EXE.vir

Quit::


Save this as "CFScript.txt", and as Type: All Files (*.*) in the same location as ComboFix.exe

Ensure you have disabled all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix. For information on how to disable your anti virus program please see this:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic114351.html

If your have Avast as anti virus an additional thing has to be changed to make ComboFix work properly:

After doing that close any open browsers.

Refering to the picture above, drag CFScript into ComboFix.exe

ComboFix will start doing its thing. After it has finished a log called DeQuarantine_log.txt will be opened. Please post that together with a new HijackThis log and also tell me about any problems/questions you have. If you have no problems/questions, would you consider this case done?

Regards,
John.

If this log seems okay, then i would say that the problem would probably be solved, however should i remove the programs, like combofix, hijackthis ect. or just leave them on the computer?

Thanks for all your help, Andy.
