Hello craigceg :)

We have only a bit of cleaning to do :)

You have Ewido and AdAware SE.

Make sure the Ewido definitions are updated.

Click Here to download the VX2 Cleaner.
Open AdAware
Click Add-Ons
Double-click VX2 Cleaner
Click OK to run the tool.

If malware is found click Clean System.
When it's done click Start in Ad-Aware SE Personal.
Make sure Perform smart system scan is checked.
Click Next.
Let it clean anything it finds.

You will want to copy this to notepad, or print it off as you will be without Internet access for the cleaning part.

Please reboot your computer into Safe Mode by doing the following:
1) Restart your computer
2) After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
3) Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
4) Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode (without networking!)
5) The screen will be distorted, with Safe Mode in each corner.

Click on Ewido scanner
Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
You will be prompted to clean the first infection.
Select "Perform action on all infections", then proceed.
Once the scan has completed, there will be a button located on the bottom of the screen named Save report
Click Save report.
Save the report .txt file to your desktop or a location where you can find it easily.
Close ewido security suite.

Open HijackThis.
With IE closed, put a checkmark on these entries and hit "fix checked" (it may well have gone already!):

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = about:blank
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = about:blank
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = about:blank
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,(Default) = about:blank
F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe C:\WINNT\Nail.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [UserFaultCheck] %systemroot%\system32\dumprep 0 -u
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [yofgdrc] C:\WINNT\system32\cthymdr.exe r
O23 - Service: System Startup Service (SvcProc) - Unknown owner - C:\WINNT\svcproc.exe


Next, we need to show some hidden files. Click Start>>>>Control Panel>>>>Folder Options and double click.
Under the View tab scroll down to Hidden Files and Folders
Check Show hidden files and folders
Uncheck Hide extensions for known file types
Uncheck Hide protected operating system files (Recommended} Answer Yes
Click Apply and click OK

Click on the Windows key and the E key on your keyboard, at the same time.
This will bring up your Windows Explorer.

Look for and delete the following:
C:\WINNT\Nail.exe <<<<< file
C:\WINNT\system32\cthymdr.exe <<<< file

While in Windows Explorer, scroll down to C:\Windows\Prefetch and delete all the contents.
Close Windows Explorer

Click Start >> Run >> type in the box Cleanmgr.exe
Let it scan your system for files to remove. Make sure these 3 are checked and then press "Ok" to remove:
Temporary Files
Temporary Internet Files
Recycle Bin


Reboot normally.

Do an online scan:
Trend Housecalls Virus Scan
Panda Soft Scanner

Open HJT, scan and save the log.
Paste the HJT log, and the Ewido log to this thread.
Let me know of any problems performing the instructions.
Let me know, also, how the computer is working once done with all the above.
