O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [LoadQM] loadqm.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [WinUpdate] C:\windows\p385.hta
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SEXO120gb] C:\SEXO120gb\SEXO120GB[1].EXE -t

The delete these files:

C:\windows\p385.hta
C:\SEXO120gb\SEXO120GB[1].EXE -t
c:\windows\saap.exe
C:\WINDOWS\qxyp.exe

Then delete all your temp files from your Temp folder, if you want you can have it done with a nice free program called ccleaner (http://www.ccleaner.com/ccdownload2.php)

BTW, I take it you are with Wanadoo.co.uk?


Then Reboot your computer, redo and repost your hijackthis log so we can confirm your system is clean.

Lee,
Have done as you said and here is the new scan log.
Two issues:
1. O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SEXO120gb] C:\SEXO120gb\SEXO120GB[1].EXE -t
is still in the scan log, despite having "fixed" it.  So what next?
2. I couldn't find the four files that you recommend I delete, neither looking in Windows Explorer, nor when I ran a Find over the whole C: drive.  Again, what next?

And yes I am with Wanadoo.  Also with ntlworld.
Thanks again for your help.

Hi pjfb,

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THESE ITEMS ARE EITHER HARMFULL OR A SECURITY RISK
WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND TO FIX THEM :
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

o4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SEXO120gb] C:\SEXO120gb\SEXO120GB[1].EXE -t


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE FOLLOWING ITEMS ARE NOT NEEDED TO LOAD

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
o4 - hklm\..\run: [loadqm] loadqm.exe
o4 - Startup: Exif Launcher.lnk = C:\Program Files\FinePixViewer\QuickDCF.exe


The  delete the folder:

C:\SEXO120gb (if it goes to the recycle bin, delete it from there as well)

I couldn't find the four files that you recommend I delete, neither looking in Windows Explorer, nor when I ran a Find over the whole C: drive.  Again, what next?

Open My Documents > Tools > folder Options > View > Show hidden files and folders, then relook for the files, if there still not there, that should mean there no longer there.

You may want to go though the steps/programs here as well: http://members.home.nl/edeijl/ache/cleaning.htm

The ones i suggest the most are Ad-Aware, Spybot, Avast, CWshredder, but there are some other nice suggestions/programs as well.

The reboot your computer, redo and repost your hijackthis log.

ps I've read VLK's comments re ZA, Niko, but have got version 4.5 of avast!, so no conflict there, but a good reason not to download the upgraded version until they've fixed it.  Thanks for the tip, quand-meme.
Vlk's comment didn't say anything about not using the latest version of avast!
It simply said that if you use avast! and ZA you should change some of the settings in ZA.
I suggest that you update avast! and then change your settings in ZA.
I use both the latest version of avast! and ZA and have no conflicts between this 2 programs.

What do I do to stop these programs loading at boottime then?

My settings are already to show all files, but I forgot to reboot after the last scan so I'll reboot PC and rerun scan to see if C:\SEXO120gb has gone.

Just remove the entrys using hijackthis, basicly there programs that are not vital to the system, so this stops them starting up at boottime which savws time, they can be run manuly from windows if ever needed though.

Lee,
Results of latest scan after rebooting are attached.
Unfortunately C:\SEXO120gb is still there.
Any more ideas on getting rid of it?

Also please note that the following item is not listed in the safe items:

and I would therefor also correct this item.

Hope that helps.

Are you just deleting it to recycle bin, or fully deleting te folder?

What scanners have you run?, where they up to date?

if you kill all processes apart from System tray and Explorer (Alt + Ctrl + Del) then delete the folder and remove the key using hijackthis does it work?



@bob

The problem is "O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SEXO120gb] C:\SEXO120gb\SEXO120GB[1].EXE -t" and the corresponding folder keeps coming back, we release its a bad malware  ;)

I haven't been able to delete it because I can't find it! >:(
I ran a Find for it on the C: drive, using the standard Windows Find functionality in the Start menu.  Is there some other sort of scanner I can download to hunt the little bleeder down? ???

Just remove the entrys using hijackthis, basicly there programs that are not vital to the system, so this stops them starting up at boottime which savws time, they can be run manuly from windows if ever needed though.

Do you mean I should tick these entries in HijackThis and click the Fix button?  But won't that delete them entirely? :-\

Hmm, very strange, when you go to Start > Run, there should be an advanced option below, there should be an option there to search for hidden files and folders, and subfolders, make sure there checked and search again.
If that still not find anything, go to My Computer > C, then look for "SEXO120gb", if its not there, then its probably Gone by now, so just remove "O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SEXO120gb] C:\SEXO120gb\SEXO120GB[1].EXE -t" and reboot, it should then be gone.

No, only the start up Reg key.  The program itself will remain and will be fully usable.

Done all that, but no joy.
Also, hadn't noticed before, but when I tick it in HijackThis, press the Fix Checked button and then do another Scan, it's still there.  In other words the Fix isn't fixing it.  Tough little so-and-so, eh?

However, thought of another line of attack: instead of entering sexo120gb in the "Named" box of the Find program, I entered it in the "Containing" text box and searched the C: drive again.  This time it found it in various places, which are presumably the ones where the virus (or whatever it is) is lurking.  I don't know how to post the complete results of the Search here, but the main file locations seem to be (all in C:WINDOWS):
1. A DAT file called System
2. A DAT file called User
3. A file called ShellconCache
4. A LOG file called f-mydoom.log (I caught the Mydoom virus some months ago and had to download a fix for it)
5. A Registration Entries file called regLocal attached to a SpyBot backup

Can I use this info to get at it in any way?

Have you rebooted after letting HijackThis do a fix? and then, do another scan.
Registry fixes need a reboot to take affect.

No you can't. Unless you are a programmer.
1 & 2 belong to the registry.
3 is the icon cache file (I assume you made a typo since it is named ShellIconCache)
4 that log could have been created by the fix. (You shouldn't have needed a fix because you would have never been infected if you had kept your system up-to-date)
5 is a file from spybot S&D

Click on the link in my signature and follow the instructions in the malware removal section. That will make sure that your system is clean. For help with HijackThis, same link but than ofcourse the HijackThis section.
