Hi,

For the past 5 hours I've tried everything I cou,d read about on the net to remove this, including vundofix, vundofix in safe mode, virtumundobegone, combofix, sdfix, and manually deleting all of ssttu.dll entries in the registry and in win.ini (in safe mode), but nothing helps, when I restart windows the ssttu.dll is recreated and shortly after it comes ssttu.exe and then uttss.ini and uttss.ini2 (all in the windows\system32). This also happenes when I restart the computer after using vundofix with my network cable disconected, so I guess there's some file that 'gives birth' to this ssttu.dll file, but I just can't find it. I've removed trojans in the past and could always find the source file that causes the problem, but now I'm getting quite desperate.

I'm posting a new hijackthis log and vundofix log

Thanx for your help

I apologize for the very long delay. We have a huge backlog of HijackThis Logs to handle and it has been taking us greater time than normal to get caught up. If you are still having a problem, and want us to analyze your information, please post a brand new hijackthis log. If we do not hear back from you within a couple of days we will need to close your topic.

When posting your logs please post them directly into the reply. Do not attach them.

Also make sure you have already followed the steps outlined below:

Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log

Thank you for your patience.
