There is a hidden folder named "RECYCLER" that appears in the root directories of all of my hard disks (3) when I open any of these: Internet Explorer 8.0, Firefox 3.5.4, Outlook Express, or the Recycle Bin on my desktop. I have written a quick batch file that deletes these directories, so now my "startup routine" is: Right-Click on Recycle Bin, select Properties, check the box for "Remove Files Immediately When Deleted" and then run my little "RECYCLER"-remover. Then my machine seems to run normally until I restart it again.

***In the registry there is are very two strange looking keys :

HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-1390067357-1645522239-839522115-1003
and
HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-1390067357-1645522239-839522115-1003_Classes

When I look at the sub-keys of S-1-5-21-1390067357-1645522239-839522115-1003
I am horrified: there's a SYSTEM key and other XP-internally-looking keys.

I cannot export the HKLM, HKU, or HKCC hives: I get an "access denied" error in response.

The key "Files Not To Back Up" is empty, which doesn't sound right to me at all.

I can sit on this for the time being with my "startup (dance) routine".

I have downloaded, but have not run, ComboFix.exe (I do pay attention.)
Thanks!

Hi Old&InTheWay,
Please, DO NOT run your Start Up program while we are working on your machine.
Also, please do not Install, Run or Remove anything unless I ask.
I am trying to keep track of what's on there and what's not, and this will help a great deal.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Remove Programs Using Control Panel
From Start, Settings, Control Panel or Start, Control Panel, click Add/Remove Programs.
Highlight each Entry, as follows, one by one, if it exists, and choose Remove :

Spybot S&D

If it asks whether you want to remove all the settings, answer YES.
You can re-install it if you wish, when we are through.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Remove Registry items with HighjackThis. Start HijackThis.
Click Do System Scan Only. When the Scan is complete, Check the following entries:
(Some of these lines may be missing)

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = about:blank
O15 - Trusted Zone: http://*.mcafee.com
O20 - Winlogon Notify: GoToAssist - C:\WINDOWS\

Make sure Every other window except HJT is closed (No other tabs showing in the bottom tray), and Click Fix Checked
Click the "X" in the upper right corner of the HiJackThis window to close it.
-----------------------------------------------------------
REBOOT Your Machine
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Download and Run MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware
Please go here to the Download Location, click on Download.
  • After clicking on the download and choosing Save, the "Save to location" dialog will come up.
  • Choose Desktop as the location to save the installer and click Save again.
  • You should now have a desktop icon named mbam-setup.exe. Double-click it.
  • Let it install the program where it wants to, with the default settings, and click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • If necessary, start Malwarebytes Anti-Malware again.
  • Once the program is running, select Perform Quick Scan, then click Scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • If it found any malware items. Check all items except items in the C:\System Volume Information folder... and click Remove Selected.
  • When completed, a log will open in Notepad. Please save it to a convenient location, and post the contents in your reply.
  • The log can also be found using the "Logs" tab in the program. You can click any log listed to open its contents.
  • Recent logs are named by time/date stamp in this format : mbam-log-2009-mm-dd(hour-min-sec).txt
  • You can now delete the installer icon, named mbam-setup.exe from your desktop.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Retrieve the List of Installed programs Using HJT
Open HijackThis, click Open The Misc Tools Section. Then scroll down the list if you need to, click Open Uninstall Manager and Save List...
The List of installed programs will automatically be saved as uninstall_list.txt in your HiJackThis folder.
In addition, the list opens in Notepad so you can also save as another name in another location if you wish.
Please paste the contents into your next reply.

So we are looking for the Installed programs list from HiJackThis and the log from Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

Re: A New Version of "Vundo"?

I am sorry but I didn't know what the black dot in my posting icon meant (it wasn't in the legend below), so I presumed it has been "blackmarked" because my user name contains an ampersand and that my site registration had been rejected (which is what happened on BleepingComputer.com).

The current status is that Add/Remove Programs hasn't worked since I tried to uninstall Nero 7 Essentials several weeks ago, which is when the first "blatant" problem appeared. Nero acknowledged that they could be responsible and made some cursory suggestions. I'll never install Nero again (I've moved to Roxio). I would have removed Spybot first if I could have. I had noted two minor incidents in the past month or so: and somewhat strange-looking Java update and more disk activity than there should have been.

I have completely purged (i.e., re-partition and hard format) my secondary system disk drive (Western Digital, 80GB) after disconnecting the primary system drive (Seagate 80GB) from IDE channel 0. I also disconnected the primary data drive (SATA channel 1). This left no way for the malware to access the newly re-built system (which I am running as I write) disk drive.

I am awaiting the arrival (on or about Wednesday, 11/11/2009) of a second SATA disk (channel 2), which will be the secondary data disk, and will allow me to create an Automated System Recovery of the secondary system disk that I can use if the newly-rebuilt secondary system becomes infected as I attempt to recover my personal data from the primary data drive (SATA 1).
Note: SATA 2 will be disconnected before SATA1 is reconnected.

As I though I was on my own, I just went ahead with my own "catastrophe recovery plan" which is why I have two system disks!

I do have two questions I should like answered, briefly if possible, as a favor.

1. Is the Registry key HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-xxxxxxxxx-yyyyyyyyy-zzzzzzzzz\ a "super user" (the equivalent of the VMS user "System" for example) and part of the XP installation proper, or this key related to malware?

2. With the hidden and system files set to "visible", should an "emptied Recycle bin" (C:\RECYCLER) still contain a second "recycle bin icon" labeled S-1-5-21-xxxxxxxxx-yyyyyyyyy-zzzzzzzzz?

Below I'll post all of the diagnostic logs I have to date. You'll forgive me, but the plethora of new postings led me to suspect there's been a large outbreak of this malware, and others needed your help more than I did, and of course, I mistakenly believed my first post had been "marked for delete" and I don't believe I saw any replies, just about a dozen views.

With much gratitude,
John

So, the staus quo is that "ComboFix" seemed to have run without any hitches,
and I did nothing more as follow up, other than to make copies of data files on the infected primary system disk and place them onto the infected primary data disk, which is not bootable and contains no system files except for the System Volume Information and probably another re-created "RECYCLER" folder in the root directory.

I can quickly disconnect the newly re-built secondary system disk and reconnect the primary system and data disks if this situation can be easily salvaged. Any advice at all would be much appreciated, and my apologies again for violating "The Prime Directive" (of ComboFix.exe).

Thank you again! :-) /jls

Old&IntheWay,
We are not a systems/hardware site.
I must say it would not be effective for me to work on that system issue with you.
I have no idea at the moment, because of all the software and hardware changes, what the status of your system is.
All these have experts in systems analysis:

Sorry, but I don't think we can be of further help to you.
