I hope it is the right topic for it.

I recently noticed that svchost and spools exes are requesting my internet connection very persistantly, I denied and blocked them in firewall, but I guess it was too late now that I ran the highjackthis and found out I have spools.exe, svchost.exe.exe.exe, cftmon.exe, IEBHO.dll, dpevflbg toolbar and lcxazwds.exe

Performance became super slow too and then it started to acting out, like popping up fake error messages and I can not start any programms normally, I have to run as and log in with my account and pass , then some do start. Some IE and Firefox webpages crashed now and then with the error message of iexplorer.exe and mozilla.exe and then just being shut up.

I read this useful forum and found info on the above malware but I can not find info on what lcxazwds.exe is , does anyone know what kind of malware that is since it was also marked as nasty in highjackthis ? I googled it all possible ways, checked malware databases, found nothing.

(I know I should have taken better care of my windows and updates, I use windows xp professional, sp1, ie6 sp1 and occasionally mozilla firefox. I also run a firewall and antivirus.)

I'd appreciate any help, thank you.

I am currently backing up files before I start any removal and reformat and reinstall...

if MBAM won't download, update and run then try to run your AV in safe mode


No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Hello jjgirl,

I see that you have an HJT log posted here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/148173/backdoor-and-spybot/ Because you have this log posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
