Hi!

I have noticed something odd the last few weeks. I have apllications running on my computer with names like temp5.exe temp3.exe temp7.exe and so on. These applications use about 5,168 kb of memory (some use a little less). I cannot terminate these applications.
I've also had a problem with my computer freezing and the screen going blanc (first the bottom third goes white then the rest of the screen. It dissolves into white). after that i have to reboot. This seems to occur mostly when I use some form of video application. It always happens when I try to export a video in Adobe Premiere and a few days ago it happened when I was watching a video file.

Any suggestions?

I'm running Windows XP Home Edition, SP 2.

I'm very grateful for any help I can get!
Thanks

This may be a FuJacks virus. Please do this.

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 Scan" 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.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

Thanks for your help! Unfortunately I found nothing using Anti-malware. Do you have any other suggestions?
(The temp.exe applications don't seem to be running all the time. I have yet to figure out why and when they start)

ThreatExpert's awareness of the file "temp3.exe"

Please print out and follow the instructions for using SDFix in BC's self-help tutorial "How to use SDFix".
-- When using this tool, you must use the Administrator's account or an account with "Administrative rights"
-- Disconnect from the Internet and temporarily disable your anti-virus and any anti-malware real time protection before performing a scan.

When done, the SDFix report log will open in notepad and automatically be saved in the SDFix folder as Report.txt. Please copy and paste the contents of Report.txt in your next reply. Be sure to renable you anti-virus and and other security programs before connecting to the Internet.

You need to turn off system restore on D and E and move some data from C to one of them before your system drive crashes

those video/audio codecs are a real mess and need to be streamlined

the system bus must be also with sonic and the drive emulators

no real player or real alternative or both?

You're probably right about the realplayer virus. I noticed that the temp.exe files appear each time I double click the installation file for realplayer. The installation never starts. Is this virus harmful? Because if all it does is prevent me from instaling real player, then I don't care too much.

I've turned off system restore for E and D, but why do I need to move data from C? I've freed up some space on C, so now there's 2,2 gb available.

"those video/audio codecs are a real mess and need to be streamlined

How do I do this?

I had real player before, but I think it was causing problems so I uninstalled it. Remember noticing the temp.exe files then too. Now they appeared again when I tried to reinstall. Should I still do a SDFix scan?

Thanks for your help so far!

I used the term virus with real player loosley, if real player is uninstalled then I would try the sdfix, it's a powerful program.

The main reason I asked you to free up space was all your drives were full, system restore is practically useless on data partitions, best saved for system partitions only

your 50 gig system partition needs 15% free just to defrag, that the minimum

have 10 gigs free, this is not a reccomendation, it's a requirement for a healthy computer

low disk space can kill windows just like malware

I think I'm dropping this issue. I looked around the internet and found some other people with the same problem. It definitely seems that the temp0.exe (temp1.exe, temp2.exe and so on) are part of the installation process for Real player. When I block temp0.exe's access to the internet (using Norton) it just keeps running in the background and the installation never starts. I could just unblock the files but I'll live without Real player.

here's my SDFix log:

I think SDFix found an old rarer backdoor trojan mirc client, MBAM would have probably picked it up if it was newer?

You might try reinstalling real player? Then later trying to get a clean uninstall. I use realalternative if I have to have realplayer funtionality, which is never for me
