A big thank you up front to anyone that can walk me through getting rid of what seems to be the last of a whole pile malware and trojans. (I HOPE) I've always thought I'd be able to get my computer clean on my own but I this Win32.tiny.abk seems to have some deep or well hidden root. I got blasted with a whole pile of infections from some software from a third party and now I think this is all that is left. I'm running XP home and use several programs for maintenace and cleaning. CCleaner, AVG anitrootkit, Spybot S&D, Superanitspyware, Hijackthis and have downloaded combofix ready to use. I used to use Clamwin for a Virus scan but have since deleted it. Any help with anylising log files and finishing the job is much appreciated!

Welcome to Bleeping Computer.

Win32.tiny.abk is a trojan downloader; it will try, without your consent, to download more malware onto your computer. It most likely runs under services.exe.

To confirm this, please open up HJT. Select Misc Tools>Process manager. Select Services.exe. Check the show .dlls. Click the suitcase thing to copy the list onto clipboard. Paste the list of processes, and the dlls running under services.exe back here.

Do not post a log or use other functions of HJT without being instructed by a mod.

I noticed that the win32.tiny.abk doesn't seem to get reseeded in the temp folder until I start browsing the web or at least not until I make the internet connection if that helps any. I use Firefox and not explorer ever.

I think the trojan downloader win32.tiny.abk is the only thing left infecting my computer, but I can't find its true source. Any help is greatly appreciated! I'm not sure what info you might need so just ask... Internet takes forever every time it shows up in the temp folder. Spybot gets it for a moment but it comes back again and again!

Hello DaFunk,

I would like you to run a scan with SUPERAntiSpyare in Safe Mode. Please be sure it is updated.

Under Configuration and Preferences, click the Preferences button.
Click the Scanning Control tab.
Under Scanner Options make sure the following are checked:
  • Close browsers before scanning
  • Scan for tracking cookies
  • Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
o Please leave the others unchecked.
o Click the Close button to leave the control center screen.
Reboot into Safe Mode
On the main screen, under Scan for Harmful Software click Scan your computer.
On the left check C:\Fixed Drive.
On the right, under Complete Scan, choose Perform Complete Scan.
Click Next to start the scan. Please be patient while it scans your computer.
After the scan is complete a summary box will appear. Click OK.
Make sure everything in the white box has a check next to it, then click Next.
It will quarantine what it found and if it asks if you want to reboot, click Yes.
Reboot into Normal Mode
To retrieve the removal information for me please do the following:
o After reboot, double-click the SUPERAntispyware icon on your desktop.
o Click Preferences. Click the Statistics/Logs tab.
o Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
o It will open in your default text editor (such as Notepad/Wordpad).
o Please highlight everything in the notepad, then right-click and choose copy.
Click close and close again to exit the program.

Please post the log in your next reply.
