Hi Everyone, I really hope someone can point me in the right direction as I am going around in circles at the moment. I seem to have an assortment of different adware and malware on my PC. I have steadily worked through it and have got rid of most of it, but I still seem to be having some problems. I have run HJT and I think the "O12 - Plugin for .spop: C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Plugins\NPDocBox.dll" is definitely one of the problems, but I want to make sure before I do something irreversible.
I run MScofig at startup and I can not stop Mobsync.exe running. Every time I delete it from the registry it still comes back, is this a known problem? Or am I barking up the wrong tree? Thanks in advance for your help. :thumbsup:

REBOOT normally.

Some items are disabled in MSCONFIG, and not all your startup items are visible.
Go to Start -> Run -> Type msconfig and press Enter.

Click the Startup tab and check all Startup items or press the Enable All button and Close. Then press the Exit without restart button. Do not reboot your computer.


Please run HijackThis! in Normal Mode and post a new log.

Thanks Daisuke,

I have done as you suggested and things seem a lot better. However after I have run several scans and set up sygate firewall, and reinstalled Norton Antivirus 2005 and the updates. I started getting spoolsv.exe running in the processes. Looking it up on the web Backdoor.ciadoor is mentioned. I can not stop it as access is denied. I rebooted and killed it through msconfig.

Is there someway of getting contorl of my pc back free of viruses and then set up the firewall and antivirus so they work properly. I have been battling this for a number of weeks now and every time I seem to get somewhere it starts off again. Norton antivirus does not seem to pick up any of the threats that the other utilities do. Are they giving false positives or is Norton useless?

I have run regedit repeatedly, but the information given on the web does not seem to be present on my machine. Am I being duped into scanning the wrong registry file. All I know is that I seem to keep having odd things happening. I can not run the icons in control panel directly, I have to make shortcuts. There is also no right click available on the icons. If I boot in safe mode they all work ok. My home page has just swopped to MSN again. Please, please suggest a way forward from this. I desperately need this machine to work properly. My thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Do you know what this file does ?

C:\WINDOWS\system32\SDMonitor.exe <-- this file

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

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page =

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

REBOOT your machine and post a new log.

Hi Daisuke,

C:\WINDOWS\system32\SDMonitor.exe

No, I don't know what it does. I thought it was to do with spybot, but checking on the web it doesn't seem to be. Should I delete it?

I have done as you said and this is my latest log.

Hi Daisuke,

I have submitted the file you asked for. I don't know what it is for. I hope this helps. My PC is operating a bit better, but spoolsv.exe is still running and there are some odd symptoms. Thanks for your help.

spoolsv.exe is a legitimate Microsoft file: Microsoft Printer Spooler Service.
It handles the printing process to your local printers.

Please search for a file

ProcessMonitorDll.dll <-- this file
and submit it here:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/submit-malware.php

Please submit also the full path. It is probably c:\Windows\system32

Daisuke,

I know spoolsv.exe is a valid microsoft file, but looking on the web it also states that it can be used as a cover for the Ciadoor.121 virus.

Ref: http://www.auditmypc.com/process/spoolsv.asp

I would have thought I could terminate terminate the spoolsv process with an administrator account, but I can not. It says "The "operation could not be completed" "Access is denied".
This does not seem normal for a print spooler.

I have submitted the .dll you asked for. What do you think that file was doing?

Thanks again for all your help.

Trust me :thumbsup:. You don't have the Ciadoor virus. Your file is in the right place and it is a Microsoft file. Search for it, right click on it and select Properties. Click the version tab. It is a MS file, isn't it :flowers:.

We are getting closer.

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

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MonitorSD] C:\WINDOWS\system32\SDMonitor.exe

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

REBOOT your machine.

Search for this file:
SpywareDetector.dll <-- this file
and submit it here
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/submit-malware.php

Also look for files installed in the system32 folder on the same date.
Click View menu in Windows Explorer --> click Details --> right click the details bar (right pane) and select Date Created. Click twice the Date Created column heading. Look for files created on the same date like the SpywareDetector.dll and ProcessMonitorDll.dll files. Submit these files too if present (zip them).

SDMonitor looks like a spyware detector. I think it's a rogue one. I found no information about these files. Could be something new.

Hi Daisuke,

I have submitted all the files that you wanted. I can't see any more created on the same dates. I hope this is of use.

The problem that I see with spoolsv is that i can't terminate it and even if I try to stop it running on startup with msconfig it still runs. Doesn't seem right to me.

I have had an alert on Spy Sweeper that SDmonitor.exe is still running on startup, but this may be a false positive. On the plus side I tried to Liveupdate Norton antivirus 2005 and it downloaded a lot of updates. Maybe coincidence or perhaps not??
