spoo1.exe
« on: June 25, 2005, 03:42:40 PM »
Hello !

Recently, my PC was infected with this virus spoo1.exe.  This virus will run everytime when booting up.  I could not access the icons on the taskbar because the taskbar flickers and disappears everytime I click my mouse. 

I tried running Avast, Adaware, Spybot Search & Destroy, but none worked. 

In the end I downloaded Autorun (shows which programs run when booting up) from sysinternal and removed the virus manually.

Why didn't Avast, Adaware or Spybot detect this virus  ???

Hi pacman2004,

Do you mean spool.exe?

spool.exe is part of RapidBlaster spyware:

http://www.liutilities.com/products/wintaskspro/processlibrary/spool/

This spyware is constantly changing to avoid detection, which is why all the programs you tried missed it.

There is a special tool available. I suggest you run it just to make sure RapidBlaster has gone:

http://www.wilderssecurity.net/specialinfo/rapidblaster.html

SpywareBlaster will protect you against future infection by RapidBlaster. It's available here:

Spool1.exe brings up nothing on Google: it must be something new.

Can you do a scan with HijackThis! and post the log please?

Hello FreewheelinFrank

I thought I removed spoo1.exe already  ???

But this process appeared again after I ran HijackThis.   Same symptons as before ; message saying "my IE homepage has changed to about:blank".

Anyway, please see log below.  Hope you can help solve this problem.

Hi Pacman2004,

spoo1sv.exe is a Trojan process:

http://castlecops.com/s3454-spoo1sv_exe.html

Please download, install, update and run this anti-trojan program:

http://www.ewido.net/en/

(If this doesn't work, we can do a manual deletion, so let me know if it works.)

I also recommend you download Ad-Aware and run a scan:

http://www.lavasoft.de/

It may detect Gamespy Arcade which is adware and which you may want to remove:

Hello Freewheelin Frank

I tried running ewido under normal & safe modes.  Still doesn't pick up this virus  :(

How to remove manually  ???

Please test the file C:\WINDOWS\system\spoo1sv.exe at http://virusscan.jotti.org/ and report what it finds. You could first rename the file in Safe mode to prevent the file getting startet in normal mode.

Hi Pacman2004,

Run HijackThis1 again and check the following entries:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SVCH0ST] C:\WINDOWS\system\spoo1sv.exe

O16 - DPF: {70BA88C8-DAE8-4CE9-92BB-979C4A75F53B} - http://launch.gamespyarcade.com/software/launch/alaunch.cab

The first is your Trojan and is essential to remove; the second is adware and only recommended to remove.

Click the Fix button and reboot into safe mode. (Tap F8 while booting.)

Delete this file:

C:\WINDOWS\system\spoo1sv.exe

and search for any more instances of spoo1sv.exe and delete them

(You may need to enable 'show hidden files'.

http://www.xtra.co.nz/help/0,,4155-1916458,00.html)

Reboot into normal mode and do another HijackThis scan to check that spoo1sv.exe has gone.

If it has not, there are more drastic ways to kill it we can try later!

Good luck,

FF

Hello FreewheelinFrank

I followed your instructions.  I found 2 things.

1.  There are no files with the name spoo1.exe in windows\system subfolder, although the scan log shows otherwise.

2.  spoo1.exe appears in the windows\Prefetch subfolder. (And I deleted this while in safe mode).

After rebooting again, spoo1.exe appears to have been deleted (It's found in my recycle bin).  I did not encounter any more messages telling me that my homepage has been changed.

I run Hijack This again to get the latest scan... and those messages start appearing again!!

Remember, I started this thread saying that I used a software "Autorun" from sysinternal and also deleted the file while in safe mode ? (similar to what you have suggested except that the software used now is HijackThis)  I ran HijackThis back then just to check it out and the same thing happened.

It seems like I am back to square one! This is driving me crazy !!

I would also like to add that spoo1.exe found it's way back to the Windows\Prefetch subfolder again !

Raman :

I scanned the file using the address provided...No results.

Hello again Pacman2004,

As it seems the virus might be hiding out in prefetch, can you empty all temporary folders and clear out prefetch as described here:

http://safecomputing.umn.edu/guides/tempdirectories.html

Then could you do another boot time scan with avast! because a lot of new virus definitions have been added.

There are also two very powerful anti-Trojan programs which you could try:

TDS-3 (Download the definitions file and move to the program folder.)

http://tds.diamondcs.com.au/

and TrojanHunter

http://www.trojanhunter.com/

They both have a free trial, and will find Trojans that anti-virus programs miss.

Finally, download Winpatrol:

http://www.winpatrol.com/

Install and run the program and select Active Tasks. If you see spoo1sv.exe in the list, right click it and select Delete File on Reboot.

Finally run HijackThis! again so we can check that your computer is clean.

Good luck!

Pacman2004,

I found removal instructions for Souljet, of which spoo1sv.exe is a symptom, here:

http://www.trendmicro.com/vinfo/virusencyclo/default5.asp?VName=TROJ%5FSOULJET%2EC&VSect=Sn

If the above fails, do a scan with the Trend Micro online scanner, make a note of infected files found and proceed as described in the link.

Edit: If the Trojan is installing services, this would explain why it is returning. These services didn't appear in the HijackThis log, where they should appear in the O23 section. ???
