A good friend in Paris France (I'm in US) has had problems with IE locking up - also states that it looked like something was searching thru her files. I logged in remotely using Crossloop (She is very smart but not technical) and it looks like the IE start problems are fixed (I disabled some IE addons) but I see some entries in the Hijack log that I wonder about and also wonder if she has been hijacked.

Computer is a Lenovo laptop running Win XP sp2 . Hijack log attached: I wonder about:

C:\Program Files\Bonjour\mDNSResponder.exe and other Bonjour entries. As far as I can see on the net, this is part of Itunes but I don't know if it's a peer to peer file share like limewire or an essential part of Itunes.

Also:C:\Program Files\HOTALBUMMyBOX\MediaChecker.exe
Can't find much on this except that it shows up in some posted Hijack listings.

Thanks very much in advance!!!

Jim

Hello jimvero. :thumbsup: to BleepingComputer.com

My name is Billy O'Neal and I will be helping you. (Billy or Bill is fine)

We 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.

If you still would like help, please follow the following instructions:

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.



Next
Please do an online scan with Kaspersky WebScanner.
  • Please visit the Kaspersky Online Scanner website.
    Note: If you are using Windows Vista, open your browser by right-clicking on its icon and select 'Run as administrator' to perform this scan.
  • Click on the Accept button and install any components it needs.
  • The program will install and then begin downloading the latest definition files.
  • After the files have been downloaded on the left side of the page in the Scan section select My Computer
  • This will start the program and scan your system.
  • The scan will take a while, so be patient and let it run.
  • Once the scan is complete, click on View scan report
  • Now, click on the Save Report as button.
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • Copy and paste that information in your next post.
In your next reply, please make sure the following reports are present:
  • The Kaspersky scan report
  • DSS's Main.txt
  • DSS's Extra.txt

:thumbsup:
Hi Bill,

Thanks for your reply.
Due to the distance I have to use Crossloop to access her computer and she is VERY busy so a bit hard to do.

Could you please comment on the program files I'm concerned about???:

C:\Program Files\Bonjour\mDNSResponder.exe and other Bonjour entries. As far as I can see on the net, this is part of Itunes but I don't know if it's a peer to peer file share like limewire or an essential part of Itunes.

Also:C:\Program Files\HOTALBUMMyBOX\MediaChecker.exe
Can't find much on this except that it shows up in some posted Hijack listings.

????

Thanks very much,

Jim

Hello, jimvero.

Before we do anything, I just want to note that it can be difficult or impossible to complete some malware removal tasks with a remote. Things such as booting in safe mode, or running certain tools, break the internet connection during their run on purpose, which is going to break whatever remote you're using.

MDNSResponder and Bonjour are related to Apple iTunes and QuickTime software, that is correct.

Not so sure on the other one:

We need to see if a file is a virus.
  • Please click this link-->Jotti
  • When the jotti page has finished loading, click the Browse button and navigate to the following file and click Submit.
    C:\Program Files\HOTALBUMMyBOX\MediaChecker.exe
  • If Jotti is busy, try the same at Virustotal: http://www.virustotal.com/
  • Please post back the results of the scan in your next post.
In your next reply, please include the following:
  • VirusTotal/Jotti's Log
