HELP! :thumbsup:

This is driving me nuts and I don't know what else to do.

I seem to have picked up a malware programme thats installed itself as an icon on the desktop and startup, and in the root directory. Being a non techie I only know this because its a) fairly obvious and :flowers: Spybot S & D tells me this.

I'm running on Windows XP Home, and using Virgin broadband with its integrated PCguard virus/privacy manager/spyware bundle. That detects nothing and neither does Adaware, although Spybot tells me that its detected and fixed the problem and requires a reboot, but the problem remains.

Having searched the forums for anyone having similar problems, I've downloaded and ran NoLop (as per RichieUK's advice on May 1st 2007) but this tells me no infection is detected. I've also tried adding in the website address to IE privacy manger for blocking, but thats no good either. Can anyone help me , or suggest what i'm possibly doing wrong?

For reference, the info i've been able to glean on this malware is as follows-

Family ID 941

Name: Win32.Trojan.Agent

Category: Malware

Item ID 300027767

Root: HKCK

Path: C\sid\{d2fac024-92c0-42e5-A75B-7B4E3915CC5D

Desktop Icon name:MBS Account Manager

web address (from properties): hxxps://secure.microbillsys.com/EN/bill.php

~Mod Edit: Link disabled, to preclude possible infection.~ TMacK

Thanks TMack. I was about to disable that link myself.

Hello parkton

The Microbill malware is usually not too difficult to remove once the bad files have been identified. The easiest way to do that is by posting a hijackthis log.

Please read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". You may have performed some of these steps already. If you can't perform a step, then skip and continue with the next. In step #9 there are instructions for downloading HijackThis and creating a log. (This is a self-extracting version which will automatically install HJT in the proper location.)

When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix. After doing this, we would appreciate if you post a link to your log back here so we know that your getting help from the HJT Team.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.
