Help - Computer Possibly Infected

Unread postby AJMkarate717 » June 27th, 2009, 2:35 am

My computer seems to be compromised. Whenver I log into my account, windows informs me that there have been problems with both "svchost" and "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services" and that they both must be terminated. Further, certain programs (specifically BitComet) cannot open, as an "application error" appears, stating that the "application could not be initialized properly and must be terminated." My computer is generally slower, freezing for brief periods of time before resuming, and, most alarmingly, on MSN premium, when clicking on a google link, I am redirected to "mooter" or another different website completely different than that advertised on the link. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello and welcome to the Malware Removal Forums

I will be assisting you with your Malware issues.


Whatever repairs we make, are for fixing your computer problems only and by no means should be used on another computer.
To make cleaning this machine easier:-
  • Continue to respond to this thread until I give you the All Clean!
  • Please DO NOT uninstall/install any programs unless asked to. It is more difficult when files/programs appear or disappear from the logs.
  • Please do not run any scans other than those requested and do not post any logs/reports unless specifically requested to do so.
  • Please follow all instructions in the order posted.
  • If you have any questions or do not understand instructions, please ask before continuing.
  • Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.

MRU P2P Policy
IMPORTANT I notice there are signs of one or more P2P (Peer to Peer) File Sharing Programs on your computer.

BitTorrent DNA

I'd like you to read the MRU policy for P2P Programs.
Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and uninstall the programs listed above (in red).
Run a new HJT scan when finished and post the log back here.

Note: Even if you are using a "safe" P2P program, it is only the program that is safe. You will be sharing files from uncertified sources, and these are often infected. The bad guys use P2P filesharing as a major conduit to spread their wares.

P2P programs also open up access to the computer on which the program is installed. The computer's settings are more often than not changed in a manner that renders them insecure, and access to the computer is left open even when the program is not in use. Therefore, the system's security is compromised.

So be aware that it's not just what's downloaded with P2P programs that creates problems, just having the program installed is like leaving all the doors to your house unlocked.

While in Add/Remove programs it is recommended to uninstall the Ask Toolbar.

Make an uninstall list using HijackThis
To access the Uninstall Manager you would do the following:
  • Start HijackThis
  • Click on the Config button
  • Click on the Misc Tools 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.

Please post this log on your next reply along with a NEW HJT log

Due to a lack of response, this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
