Ok, here's the deal. I downloaded a piece of crap spyware (some places it looks like it's known as W32.Sinnaka.A@mm) and in turn that downloaded something else. I got rid of the spyware and crap, but there's just one more thing that I can't get rid of. I am having the same problem with somethin accessing my ActiveX controller in IE (error dialog saying that ActiveX can't be displayed, blah blah blah). And, not to mention, my %Windows%\Temp folder is crammed full of *.tmp, and of course our all beloved win***.tmp.exe. However, when I delete any of the files that are obvious (everything in the \Temp folder) they come back within about 10 minutes. Now, I've followed all these different instructions located all over the net and I cannot find this mo' fo'. I installed ZAP to pinpoint the program that was doing this. I narrowed it down to the fact that it's using svchost.exe access the net. I am on a network, so I can tell when it's my network communicatin with my computer or another address. I followed all the registry crap, but there is nothing in the normal entries (ie, "\run" or the likes) that shouldn't be there. I'm fresh out of ideas as to where this downloader is at. I've looked over my hijack log and everything checks out. My only theory is that it's injected. Into what is the question. Normally, I'm pretty good with manually killin these things, but this one has me stumped. Here's my hijack log.

Heck yeah

Well, it looks like I figured it out. Apparently, there was an ActiveX controller that was disguising itself as a Java plugin. Well, there were about 3 instances of this piece of trash (in the root\Downloaded Program Files). So far so good. I deleted those files and the win*.tmp.exe files and all is well right now... we'll see... no popups at all yet.

Well, the header was nothing but my Windows XP version, SP, and stuff. I wouldn't think that that would have any significance, but I will include that in the next log post. Also, the interesting thing is that over the course of the last few days I have not had a problem with it at all. I have no idea what happened to it or where it went. I have received no ActiveX errors or such. I left it disconnected from the net for a few days (not by choice of course--I feel disconnected from the world if I'm off the net) and since then it has not given me a bit of problems. I'll post again to see if anything's wrong.

PS: Is there any way to rid myself of this manually? I mean, I want to do it without extra software.

No, we need to run some fixes that make registry changes.

Please download VundoFix.exe to your desktop.
  • Double-click VundoFix.exe to run it.
  • Put a check next to Run VundoFix as a task.
  • You will receive a message saying vundofix will close and re-open in a minute or less. Click OK
  • When VundoFix re-opens, click the Scan for Vundo button.
  • Once it's done scanning, click the Remove Vundo button.
  • You will receive a prompt asking if you want to remove the files, click YES
  • Once you click yes, your desktop will go blank as it starts removing Vundo.
  • When completed, it will prompt that it will shutdown your computer, click OK.
  • Turn your computer back on.
  • Please post the contents of C:\vundofix.txt and a new HiJackThis log.
