"AVAST CONNECTION TIME OUT". A VIRUS ?
« on: December 27, 2005, 12:35:54 AM »
I keep getting annoying pop up messages continuously like the following:

avast! connection timeout
Internet connection timeout elapsed. Continue waiting ?

(winlogon.exe -> mta-v1.level3.mail.vip.mud.yahoo.com:25)

YES - NO


The address bit (after winlogon) is different every time.
In addition my browser is slow and there is a strange looking blue screen in my task bar that displays those strange addresses when the mouse is placed over it but it is not clickable.
I had a virus incident earlier and avast identified some.
But there was another process called "sywscvs.exe" which is known to be malware and it was appearing in the popup screen in place of "winlogon". This one I terminated and deleted but the problem continues.

I don't know what settings to modify and I believe it is a virus (that cannot be handled effectively by avast).

At one stage the computer shut down, after winlogon tried to access something like an illegal memory.

I tried adaware and it removed something.
When I rebooted the machine the blue thing was n't there but it came back a little afterwards.
I start boot scan in the morning - can't tell it's going to complete without crash.
May be it needs hijack and some other removal tool associated with it - I used to have those.

I will try those scanners now.
Tried spybot also but it says "nothing found".

What about winlogon.exe ?
That's the one appearing in the Avast message as well.

First you'll have to disable SYSTEM RESTORE and clean it out(if you don't know how click HERE and read my post i posted screenshots on how to do it) also clean out your temporary internet files, then run Kaspersky online scanner again except this time click CLEAN INFECTIONS(or something like that i don't remember what it was since it's been a long time kaspersky detected an infection with me) after the scan is finished OK?

These and some others are also in Temp so you need to clear all temp locations.

It is helpfull to periodically clear out the temp folders, before a major scan as this will remove the need to scan many files in temp locations. Here are a couple of tools to help with that ClearProg - Temp File Cleaner or CCleaner - Temp File Cleaner, etc.

You can also use Internet Sweeper to clean out your temp. files as well as history, etc. You can set it to clean what you want to be cleaned. Internet Sweeper can be set to clean each time the computer is started.

Hope this helps you.    :)

Used Kasperski free trial and it deleted some 20-30 viruses, including the offending msctl32.dll (using the delete at start up option).
I don't see the avast related timeout message now but unfortunately the spam machine came back to life.
It does n't have a name either, but its icon looks like a grey monitor with a bluo screen (is it called etowin ?).
Also when I ran Kasperski for the first time, I left it unattended because it was taking long and the pc crashed with a "winlogon" error screen.

re. disable system restore - ran kasperski in safe mode and it does n't allow

Is avast now capable to deal with the situation ?
