problem w/ trojan that keeps reinstalling

Unread postby hanmi » August 5th, 2009, 9:08 am


I have WinXP SP2. I regularly run Spybot and AdAware, and I've got V3 Internet Security (a Korean antivirus). I use Firefox exclusively, except when IE is necessary to access my local Korean bank, which is only accessible via IE and requires evil ActiveX downloads. My husband uses only IE because most Korean sites don't display correctly in other browsers. Nothing I can do about this. (I have my own sacred laptop w/o IE, but that's another story.) We have never used a P2P file sharing program on the computer.

Most of the times, but not every time that I have turned on my computer over the past couple of weeks, AdAware (free version) starts up right away because it says it found a trojan. At first, it was finding one. Then it started finding two sets of files.

Here's the output that I copied from AdAware most recently. Each time, I get the same thing, but the three digit number before .exe changes:

File : C:/Documents and Set/./

Win32TrojanProxy.Agent opens up the infected machine to be used as a proxy server.

File: C:/Documents and Set/./ettings/Temp/328.exe

File: C:/Documents and Set/./

Process: c:/docume~1/admini~1/locals~1/temp/328.exe

Registry Entry:

Registry Entry:
HKLM:software/micros/./dvanced dhtml enable

A malicious object of high severity was detected and cleaned. It is recommended that you restart your computer to ensure that all traces of the object are removed completely.

***********end of copied text

So, at first I would restart because it told me to, but I figured out this would just bring the trojan back, so I stopped doing that. I also tried both "quarantine" which was recommended, and "remove."

I also tried running a special V3 scan, which found nothing, and a Spybot scan, which found something else not found by AdAware. (Sorry, didn't write it down, but I can do this again if needed.)

Also, when I start up, I see some unusual language before the desktop comes up, but it's too fast to catch what's going on.

By the way, there's a bunch of other virus and spyware protections of dubious value on the machine, which I have turned off. One is a program installed by the DSL service guy. For a little while, before I figured out what was going on, they were all running at once, so I'm not sure if that caused a problem. I still have the No Phishing one on, because it's required to log in to the bank.

Anyway, here's my hijackthis log:

Hi :)

As per request:
If there is no one to help me, I would appreciate a referral to a reliable paid service. We have to back up everything and take it with us before we leave, and I'm worried about infecting another computer.

If you find this after Sunday 10 p.m. U.S. central standard time, please ignore this request and simply advise on how to clean up any USB flash drives we have used with the computer. We will have to clean up the computer next time we set it up.
You can disinfect the USB Flash Drives as follows:


  • Please download Flash_Disinfector and save it to your desktop.
  • Double click to run it.
  • You will be prompted to plug in your flash drive. Plug it in.
  • Flash_Disinfector will start disinfecting your flash and hard drives. This takes a few seconds. Your desktop will disappear in the meantime.
  • When done, a message box will appear. Click OK. Your desktop should now appear. If it doesn't, press Ctrl + Shift + Esc to open Task Manager.
  • Click on File > New Task (Run...). Type in explorer.exe and press Enter. Your desktop should now appear.

Note: Flash_Disinfector will create a hidden folder named autorun.inf in each partition and every USB drive plugged in when you ran it. Don't delete this folder...it will help protect your drives from future infection.

Let myself know if you require further assistance, thank you.
