Getting Worse - another hijackthis log

Unread postby Vicunja » March 16th, 2006, 2:30 pm

I logged a hijackthis log a couple of weeks ago.

I did everything I was able to do on my own and was awaiting assistance from some IT competent mates. However, my internet/computer now appears to be even more wacked than it was before. Suddenly the other day the computer crashed and upon re-starting, some odd things had happened. Images show in more or less pixilated form, colours have changed and I can't seem to find neither reason nor cure for this sudden oddity.

How's it looking now? Please help!

First of all, you will need to print out this post and/or save a copy as a text file in Notepad; that way you have a hard copy of these instructions; you can not have IE/Firefox/any browser open during the fix

Enable viewing of hidden files by doing the following

* Open My Computer.
* Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
* Select the View Tab.
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm.
* Click OK.
* Click Start, Programs and Accessories and open Windows Explorer.
* Select a hard drive from the left hand side of the Windows Explorer window.
* Select View the Entire contents of this drive.

Please run HijackThis and click "Scan." Place checks next to the following entries:

  • F1 - win.ini: run=c:\windows\system\mousebut.exe

Close all browser and other windows except for HijackThis, and click "Fix Checked".

Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following:
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap F8.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.


For additional help in booting into Safe Mode, see the following site:
http://www.pchell.com/support/safemode.shtml

Go to "Control Panel". Choose "Add/Remove Programs" and uninstall the following if listed:

TROJ_CRYPTER.A.


Also, delete the following files (if they exist):

c:\windows\system\mousebut.exe

Restart your computer and at least one of run the folowing online scan (Must use IE)
http://www.ravantivirus.com/scan/
http://www.kaspersky.com/beta?product=161744315

Save the results for next post

Rerun HijackThis. Please post a new HijackThis log and result of KAV scan in reply to this thread.
