As advised by the ever helpful Moderators here, may I request for assistance in helping me clean-up my PC with the said trojan/virus (kernel32.ini). I already checked the file at jotti's Online Malware Scan and below are the results:

Scan taken on 03 May 2008 19:06:43 (GMT)

A-Squared = Found nothing
AntiVir = Found TR/Crypt.XPACK.JR.1
ArcaVir = Found Trojan.Autorun.Gu
Avast = Found Win32:AutoRun-FV
AVG Antivirus = Found Worm/Delf.DUN
BitDefender = Found Trojan.Generic.47326
ClamAV = Found Worm.Autorun-667
CPsecure = Found W32.AutoRun.gu
Dr.Web = Found Win32.HLLW.Autoruner.999
F-Prot Antivirus = Found nothing
F-Secure Anti-Virus = Found Virus.Win32.AutoRun.gu
Fortinet = Found nothing
Ikarus = Found Virus.Win32.AutoRun.gu
Kaspersky Anti-Virus = Found Virus.Win32.AutoRun.gu
NOD32 = Found probably unknown NewHeur_PE (probable variant)
Norman Virus Control = Found nothing
Panda Antivirus = Found nothing
Sophos Antivirus = Found Mal/SillyFDC-A
VirusBuster = Found nothing
VBA32 = Found Virus.Win32.AutoRun.gu


Before this, i was also infected by a trojan/virus (byxxxvu.dll), which gave me a headache cleaning up. Ever since then, my PC's speed has never been the same, especially when booting up and shutting down. I wouldn't want to go through the process of reinstalling XP on my PC, but have reserved it if ever you guys will recommend it.

I understand that every case here should be treated individually since some recommendations from helpers might not be suitable (or worst, disastrous) in some scenarios--like mine. :thumbsup:

I am already using HiJackThis and eager to post the log here.
Hope you guys can help out. :flowers:

Before we post a HJT log let's try fixing this here first?

If you have SpyBot installed Temporarily close it before this scan,thanks.
Please run S!Ri's SmitfraudFix (part 1)
Please download SmitfraudFix

Double-click SmitfraudFix.exe
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.
http://www.beyondlogic.org/consulting/proc...processutil.htm

NEXT:
Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on Download_mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Acan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart your computer. (see Note below)
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.
