Hello. My computer had a problem with userinit.exe and wsaupdater.exe yesterday due to a problem with cn911. That has now been fixed but I've noticed my computer takes a much longer time to load on startup. Also, there is another problem which has presisted for some time now. When I open my computer, it loads my background image (without any icons or the start menu), then an error pops up saying Windows could not open "?????????????????????????????????????????????.exe" (it actually is question marks) because the file could not be found. It usually goes away if I don't touch it, or I can click Okay and it leaves too. However, afterwards, I've noticed a strange file in my C drive. In C:\, there is an application with the title ".exe". I'm not sure if its supposed to be hidden or not, but I can see it even if I didn't set it to show hidden files. I've never opened it cause I don't know what it is, but everytime I delete it, it reappears on restart. What's going on, and is there anyway to make my computer load faster again?

I've attached my Hijackthis log and an image of the application that appears in my C drive with this. Thanks for your help in advance.

Hello niamo and welcome to BleepingComputer!

My name is Johannes and I will be dealing with your log today.
Please note that comments are made in green, links are in red and important things are outlined by using the blue color.

Please also take note of the following:
  • I will start working on your Malware issues, this may or may not, solve other issues you have with your machine.
  • The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine
  • The process is not instant. Please continue to review my answers until I tell you your machine is clear. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.
  • If you don't know, stop and ask! Don't keep going on.
  • Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
Please give me some time to look over your log and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Thanks,
Johannes

Hey niamo,

Step #1

Run HijackThis, press Scan, and put a check mark next to all these entries:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Alcmtr] ALCMTR.EXE

Close all other windows and browsers, and press the Fix Checked button.

Step #2

Please copy and paste the following text into Notepad:

dir /a "C:\*" > dirlist.txt
notepad.exe dirlist.txt
del dirlist.txt
del dirlist.bat

Save this as "dirlist.bat" Choose to save as *all files and place it on your Desktop.
Double-click dirlist.bat. The two created files will disappear from your Desktop once you closed notepad; this is fine.

Please post the contents of dirlist.txt.

Step #3

* Clean your Cache and Cookies in InternetExplorer:
  • Close all instances of Outlook Express and Internet Explorer
  • Go to Control Panel > Internet Options > General tab
  • Click the "Delete Cookies" button
  • Next to it, Click the "Delete Files" button
  • When prompted, place a check in: "Delete all offline content", click OK
* Clean your Cache and Cookies in Firefox (In case you also have Firefox installed):
  • Go to Tools > Options.
  • Click Privacy in the menu on the left side of the Options window.
  • Click the Clear button located to the right of each option (History, Cookies, Cache).
  • Click OK to close the Options window
    Alternatively, you can clear all information stored while browsing by clicking Clear All.
    A confirmation dialog box will be shown before clearing the information.
* Clean other Temporary files + Recycle bin
  • Go to start > run and type: cleanmgr and click ok.
  • Let it scan your system for files to remove.
  • Make sure Temporary Files, Temporary Internet Files, and Recycle Bin are the only things checked.
  • Press OK to remove them.
Step #4

Please post back with a fresh HijackThis log and the contents of the dirlist.txt.

Thanks.

Hi Niamo,

Please note that you are infected with a trojan (horse) or a Backdoor / Backdoor Server.

Due to the status of some of the files you have on your computer, I strongly recommend that you do the following immediately:
  • Disconnect the infected computer from the internet until the computer can be cleaned.
  • From a clean computer, change your online passwords-- for email, for banks, eBay, forums etc.... (Do not change passwords or do any transactions while using the infected computer because the attacker may get the new passwords and transaction information).
Though the Trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of Trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS.

Please read these for more information:

How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?
When Should I Format, How Should I Reinstall?

However, since the infection looks relatively small from first sight, I am happy to try and clean your PC (I am just providing you with the above information to underline the impact that can occur with files like these on your pc).

Should you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Now, on to the fix.

Step #1

Please run the F-Secure Online Scanner
Note: This Scanner is for Internet Explorer Only!
  • Follow the Instruction Here for installation.
  • Accept the License Agreement.
  • Once the ActiveX installs,Click Full System Scan
  • Once the download completes,the scan will begin automatically.
  • The scan will take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  • When the scan completes, click the Automatic cleaning (recommended) button.
  • Click the Show Report button and Copy&Paste the entire report in your next reply.
Step #2

Download and Save Blacklight to your desktop:
  • Double-click blbeta.exe then accept the agreement, click > scan then > next
  • You'll see a list of all items found. There will also be a log on your desktop with the name fsbl.xxxxxxx.log (the xxxxxxx stand for numbers).
  • Copy and paste this log in your next reply. Don't choose the rename option yet! I want to see the log first, because legitimate items can also be present there, such as "wbemtest.exe"
Step #3

Make sure that you can see hidden files.
  • Click Start.
  • Click My Computer.
  • Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
  • Select the View Tab.
  • Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
  • Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
  • Click Yes to confirm.
  • Uncheck the Hide file extensions for known file types.
  • Click OK.
If C:\??????????????????????????????.exe is still present on your pc, please delete the file.

Step #4

Please post back with the scan result from F-Secure Online scan and the fsbl.xxxxxxx.log from blacklight beta.

Thanks.

Step #2

Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune. (This program is for XP and Windows 2000 only)Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Under Main "Select Files to Delete" choose: Select All.
Click the Empty Selected button.
If you use Firefox browserClick Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.

Step #3

Please have F-Secure Online scanner run again after the above deletions and emptying the temporary folders.
It should now report with nothing found. Please let me know of the outcome.

Also, please let me know if you still get those error messages when you start your pc.

Hello,

I can't seem to find winbank.exe, but I did find WINBACK.0XE. Should I delete that?

Hey Niamo,

before we delete it, its best to check the file.
Please do the following first before I will let you proceed:

Step #1

Please click this link--> http://www.virustotal.com/flash/index_en.html

When the virustotal page has finished loading, click the Browse button and navigate to the following file and click Submit.
WINBACK.0XE

Please post back the results of the scan in your next post.

Thanks.
