Win32:Trojan-gen {Other} - Help!
« on: May 29, 2008, 01:53:59 AM »
Hello guys. I recently got this annoying virus/worm in my computer which Avast calls "Win32:Trojan-gen {Other}" in some apfhlp.sys file. Even though Avast detects it, it cannot be removed, even if I delete the file, since it keeps coming back whenever I restart my computer.
I have tried many other programs and can't find a solution on how to clean it. In this forum, however, somebody here posted a log file from HijackThis and got some help that was able to solve the problem. Would someone be wiiling to gime me some advice as well? Thanks in advance.

Edit: I just figured out that this post may be in the wrong section, so can someone move it to the worm/virus section? Sorry for the inconvenience!

I suggest:

1. Disable System Restore and reenable it after step 3.
2. Clean your temporary files.
3. Schedule a boot time scanning with avast with archive scanning turned on.
4. Use SUPERantispyware, MBAM or Spyware Terminator to scan for spywares and trojans. If any infection is detected, better and safer is send the file to Quarantine than to simple delete than.
5. Test your machine with anti-rootkit applications. I suggest avast! antirootkit or Trend Micro RootkitBuster.
The best things in life are free.

I tried these... in the beggining, both Avast and SuperAntiSpyware detected some files with the virus. Using these two programs in the Safe Mode, I got rid of them. Even some registry parts. But even though now they don't fin anything else related to the virus, it is still there: whenever I restart my computer Avast detects the spfhlp.sys file in my computer. And the worst part is, it is being used for sending spam.
Also, what am I supposed to do with the anti-rootkit applications? Avast anti-rootkit detected some process ruining but it said itself they were not harmful...

C:\WINDOWS\taskmon.exe

Please disable 'Hide protected operating system files' and enable 'View Hidden Files and Folders', and upload the above files to VirusTotal for analysis.

Post the result here.

Automatic analysis is highlighting this as malicious:

Quote
Must be fixed! Added as a result of the MYDOOM.A or MYDOOM.J WORMS! Note - this is not the valid Win98/Me file of the same name which resides in C:\Windows as this version resides in C:\Windows\System (Win9x/Me), C:\Winnt\System32 (WinNT/2K), or C:\Windows\System32 (WinXP). It is not normally on a WinXP system

If this is confirmed by VirusTotal, run HijackThis! again, tick the following entry, close all other windows and click 'fix'. Reboot into Safe Mode and delete the file.

So, basically I have to delete taskmon.exe because it's a fake system file?

Yep.

The file will be passed to avast! and other AV companies from VirusTotal so they can add detection.
