Hello,

my name is Peyrac, i am new to your forums, and as far as i can see its a great place to stay and learn. I found your forums while searching about my processes... and decided to ask you for a help. I consider myself as an advanced user, being carefull at clicking stuff, not visiting porno / crack / serial keys / free torrent and other weird websites, downloading only from reliable sources, have good firewall, have updated AV and Antispyware, also performing week scans… However my father is NOT advanced. When i was in Rome, he visited some really weird websites, which resulted in :

- a pop-up during web surfing
- firefox not responding, and need restart to make it functionable again
- at restart process »svchost.exe« taking 50 % of the CPU and takes for few minutes
- C disc is loud and doing something tho i leave it alone ( it wasnt doing that before )
- When i want to restart it takes 2x as long as before
- program myProcMan finding 1 process as malware added by VB-ZD Trojan
http://shrani.si/?3B/nj/4ibWjeb7/this-process-is-bad.png


My precautions so far :

- Deep scan with SUPERAntiSpyware on max settings – No result
- ClamWin Free scan on max settings – 1 virus found and cleaned, but it wasnt in system map
- Spyware Doctor - found and deleted 2 medium risk spywares ( 1 of them was : Trojan.ProAgent ). The type of spyware were 2, but duplicates of it was 5-6 of each. All deleted
- Avast Professional : found and deleted 2 trojans, both were in C : System volume information. One of them was backdoor.
AVG Free scan : No result


The results now :

- pop up is gone
- firefox is ok
- C disc is now quiet as before


However - process svchost.exe is STILL taking 50 % of the CPU and taking for few minutes
- restart time is still 2x as long as it was before
- program myProcMan finding 1 process as malware added by VB-ZD Trojan

And also - http://shrani.si/?11/aH/2O1aBN4g/this-is-bad.png added by RBOT.BO Worm


Comodo firewall was removed and replaced with ZoneAlarm Pro firewall. The Anti spyware tool integrated into ZoneAlarm FOUND 2 more things, which were ignored by programs listes higher.

http://shrani.si/?2e/S0/2Wv2S9Af/drek-2.png Trojan



Current AV - AVG Free 7.5
Current FW - ZoneAlarm Pro
Current AntiSpyware - Spyware Doctor, latest version

Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600)

While writting this, my system was scanned with Spyware Doctor, ZoneAlarm Antispyware, AVG Free, SUPER AntiSpyware, all set on maximum settings. NO RESULT

Hello


Apologize for the delay in response we get overwhelmed at times but we are trying our best to keep up.
If you have since resolved the original problem you were having would appreciate you letting us know If not please perform the following below so I can have a look at the current condition of your machine.

Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

Please download Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) and save to your Desktop.
alternate download site

DSS will do the following:
  • Create a new System Restore point in Windows XP and Vista.
  • Clean your Temporary Files, Downloaded Program Files, Internet Cache Files, and empty the Recycle Bin on all drives.
  • Check some important areas of your system and produce a report for an analyst to review.
  • Automatically run HijackThis. It will also install and place a shortcut to HijackThis on your desktop if you do not already have it installed. So if HijackThis is not installed and DSS prompts you to download it, please answer yes.
You must be logged onto an account with administrator privileges when using.
  • Close all applications and windows.
  • Double-click on dss.exe to run it and follow the prompts.
  • If your anti-virus or firewall complains, please allow this script to run as it is not
    malicious.
  • When the scan is complete, two text files will open in Notepad:
    • main.txt <- this one will be maximized
    • extra.txt <- this one will be minimized
  • If not, they both can be found in the C:\Deckard\System Scanner folder.
  • Please copy (Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V) the contents of main.txt and extra.txt in your next reply.
-- When running DSS, some firewalls may warn that it is trying to access the Internet especially if your asked to download the most current version of HijackThis. Please ensure that you allow it permission to do so.
-- If you get a warning from your anti-virus while DSS is scanning, please allow DSS to continue as the scan is not harmful.
