you moved my first post w/the HJT v1.99.1 results & explination that the hijack apparently disabled most my programs (tho I renamed some of them & got them to work.) the v2.0.2 is not opening at all, even if I rename it. the names of the two running processes which are holding my computer system hostage were shown in the v1.99.1 results & they are C:\WINNT\system32\bolenjx.exe and C:\WINNT\system32\wuauclt.exe.

If I receive another "form" type reply or whatever, I'm sure I will give-up on this site as helpful to me personally, tho I realize you've been a great service to many, thru the years - kudos.

:thumbsup: donte

Donte,

You need to follow all the instructions that you can in this post, and then include a new HJT log, posting in this forum only.

Note: only use the latest version of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2

No one is giving you a run around. We are trying to provide the best support to you that we are able to do.
The only easy day was yesterday.

The new HJT will not work - I already explained this hijack is preventing most programs like HJT, SpyBot or ComboFix from operating.

If HijackThis will not run, change the .exe to something else such as .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr. Example: Scanner.bat or Scanner.com[/color]

Glad to hear that.

If there are no more problems or signs of infection, should Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "Ok".
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
Then to protect yourself against malware and reduce the potential for re-infection, be sure to read:
"Simple and easy ways to keep your computer safe".
"How did I get infected?, With steps so it does not happen again!".
"Best Practices - Internet Safety for 2008".
"Hardening Windows Security - Part 1".
"Hardening Windows Security - Part 2".
"IE Recommended Minimal Security Settings".
