The win32: agent-Bqc [troj] was found by Avast... and it tried to remove it from internetfile\content.IE5\tedm7qkg\try.exe

no go... so I took it out the reg.

Onlinegames-adu... more properly refered to as 2ui.dll... is located in c:\winnit\temp... ok

Alright... no go... took it out the reg.

The nasty lil thing wants to del something called xpe.sys... and if you let it... it makes extra copies of trz?.temp.
It also makes extra copies if you let it write to metabase.bin. Oh, and the extra copies are not seen as a virus.. they are named Z1to5?B... and mutate into the others as the first are deleted.

I have stray items that make no sense... something called inetinfo.exe, not sure what it does.
Something called C:\recycler...De10.sys. (Neither of which can be found with a regedit, or a program search.)

I also have something named Project1... that gives me an error message (53 file not found) right after a total del... and Project2... both removed from the reg.

I'm not terribly pleased about this... it isn't GROWING, cause my progs won't let it... but it is still THERE.
So... something is calling... something... and causing it to behave in a hydra like fashion... sure, my avast, and adaware will cut off it's head... but it just grows a new one. And even if I whack what I can find with del on next reboot... they come BACK....

I'm not sure what my next step is... oh, yeah... and whatever it is CLAIMS it's hiding in IE... no go... can't find it there... All my files are visable...

Suggestions?

What OS (Win XP/2000, etc) are you using? Have you tried doing your scans with Avast in "SAFE MODE"? Are you doing scans while logged into the Administrator's account or an account with administrator privileges? If not, please do so.

inetinfo.exe is used primarily for debugging Microsoft Windows Server Internet Information Services.

Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune & save it to your desktop. DO NOT use yet.
Please download Dr.Web CureIt & save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.

Reboot your computer in SAFE MODE" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

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 browser click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
    If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • If you use Opera browser click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
    If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
Note: On Vista, "Windows Temp" is disabled. To empty "Windows Temp" ATF-Cleaner must be "Run as an Administrator".

Scan with Dr.Web CureIt as follows:
  • Double-click on cureit.exe to start the program. An "Express Scan of your PC" notice will appear.
  • Under "Start the Express Scan Now", Click "OK" to start. This is a short scan that will scan the files currently running in memory and when something is found, click the Yes button when it asks you if you want to cure it.
  • Once the short scan has finished, Click Options > Change settings
  • Choose the "Scan tab" and UNcheck "Heuristic analysis"
  • Back at the main window, click "Select drives" (a red dot will show which drives have been chosen)
  • Then click the "Start/Stop Scanning" button (green arrow on the right) and the scan will start.
  • When done, a message will be displayed at the bottom advising if any viruses were found.
  • Click "Yes to all" if it asks if you want to cure/move the file.
  • When the scan has finished, look if you can see the icon next to the files found. If so, click it, then click the next icon right below and select "Move incurable".
    (This will move it to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if it can't be cured)
  • Next, in the Dr.Web CureIt menu on top, click file and choose save report list.
  • Save the DrWeb.csv report to your desktop. (You can use Notepad to open/view the DrWeb.cvs report)
  • Exit Dr.Web Cureit when done.
  • Important! Reboot your computer because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
Download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free.
  • Double-click SUPERAntiSypware.exe and use the default settings for installation.
  • An icon will be created on your desktop. Double-click that icon to launch the program.
  • If asked to update the program definitions, click "Yes". If not, update the definitions before scanning by selecting "Check for Updates". (If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and unzip into the program's folder.)
  • Under "General and Startup", make sure "Start SUPERAntiSpyware when Windows starts" box is unchecked.
  • Under "Configuration and Preferences", click the Preferences button.
  • Click the Scanning Control tab.
  • Under Scanner Options make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):
    • Close browsers before scanning.
    • Scan for tracking cookies.
    • Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
  • Click the "Close" button to leave the control center screen.
  • Back on the main screen, under "Scan for Harmful Software" click Scan your computer.
  • On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
  • On the right, under "Complete Scan", choose Perform Complete Scan and click "Next".
  • After the scan is complete, a Scan Summary box will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click "OK".
  • Make sure everything has a checkmark next to it and click "Next".
  • A notification will appear that "Quarantine and Removal is Complete". Click "OK" and then click the "Finish" button to return to the main menu.
  • If asked if you want to reboot, click "Yes" and reboot normally.
  • To retrieve the removal information after reboot, launch SUPERAntispyware again.
    • Click Preferences, then click the Statistics/Logs tab.
    • Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
    • If there are several logs, click the current dated log and press View log. A text file will open in your default text editor.
  • Click Close to exit the program.
Then perform at least one of these online Virus scans:
(The following require Internet Explorer to work. Watch the Address bar in IE. You may receive alerts that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Install ActiveX component.)
BitDefender Online Scanner <- Add a check by "Autoclean".
ESET Nod32 Online Scanner (Vista compatible)
F-Secure Online Scanner <- Be sure to follow the directions on the F-Secure page for proper Installation. (also checks for rootkits).

Well, I followed directions, but I don't really thing any prog is going to remove this... it's more of a manual removal type of thing.
All good in safe mode... AGAIN, so np... do a reboot... and it's BACK... With this interesting message...

"Fri Oct 05 12:19:30 2007
:: nextSched=Thu Oct 25 02:00:00 2007
; sleeptime in sec=(1690830, hours=469), hours hours=470, actual sleep=1694420 secs

Fri Oct 05 12:19:30 2007
:: lastSchedTime= Tue Sep 25 02:00:00 2007
; "

Now... I don't know if the message belongs to the nasty prog or not... but... it wasn't there BEFORE... and it is NOW.

Ok, so whatever is calling my prog... is on post, or on wins boot... I'm guessing wins boot.
Oddly enough... I got a lot of my C: drive back... (Silly me, I just thought I downloaded too much stuff)...

Oh yeah... platform wins2k professional... IE5... yes all the patches... along with Avast and Zone Alarm.

If someone could tell me what peculiar code that message is in... maybe I can hunt it that way... I haven't programmed since COBOL... and this is driving me freeking nuts.

TIA,
Kathy

Do you have Java SE Runtime Environment installed and did that message include any reference to jusched.exe (Sun Java Update Scheduler)?

The Java Update is a feature that keeps your computer up-to-date automatically with the latest Java releases. Installing the Java Runtime Environment automatically installs the Java Update feature which connects to java.com at a scheduled time and checks to see if there is an update available.

You can view a similar log here.

If so you can disable the Scheduler so it no longer runs at startup. If you have Spybot S&D 1.5 installed, launch it, go to Mode and select Advanced. Then go to Tools, select System Startups. You will be provided with a list of programs that load when Windows starts. If you untick the entry for jusched.exe it will no longer run at startup.

Other startup managers you can download and use for free are Startup Control Panel, Autoruns or Starter by CodeStuff.

VERIFY your JAVA Software Installation & Version here. It was recently updated.

Anything more found by Avast?
