I've got that WinCtrl32 problem on my PC (Win XP Pro, SP2), after clicking on something nasty from the web.

I've run Spybot multiple times, and it seems to have eradicated most of the bad stuff, including Zlob, Vista Anti-Virus, and Virtumonde malware. But it also keeps finding something else called Win32.Banker.aipy.rtk and has eradicated multiple files under that. Now it's down to finding only three files:
-- Win32.Banker.aipy.rtk: [SBI $F565C0D5] Settings (Registry key, nothing done)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\lanmandrv

-- Win32.Banker.aipy.rtk: [SBI $AD7B69FD] Settings (Registry key, nothing done)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002\Services\lanmandrv

-- Win32.Banker.aipy.rtk: [SBI $4443B172] Library (File, nothing done)
E:\WINDOWS\system32\qmopt.dll

But each time I use Spybot to delete them, the same three files reappear the next time I run Spybot, either with or without rebooting.

There are two files (WinCtrl32.dll and WinCtrl32.dl_) on my main hard drive (E:\WINDOWS\system32) that I've tried deleting but can't.

Ad-Aware (free) finds nothing.

I also have HijackThis, but haven't run it yet because I can't figure out what it does.

Other Symptoms
-- I see "VIRUS ALERT!" in place of PM or AM in Date/Time, and it has switched from a 12-hour clock to a 24-hour clock. This VIRUS ALERT! text reappears in all other programs where I use time stamps (emails in Outlook, appointments in Lotus Organizer).

-- When Windows launches, I get a message saying "You may be a victim of software counterfeiting" and urging me to activate Windows Genuine Advantage, which I refuse to do since I have a legit copy of Windows XP.

-- The Start menu no longer shows Control Panel, Help & Support, Run, Search, etc.

-- When Windows launches at startup and my desktop comes up, I get a My Computer window opening automatically that shows the E:\WINDOWS\system32 folder contents. This never happened before.

Oh, man -- I hope you guys can help me out of this mess…

Hello and welcome. Let's do one more scan. Please disable spybot for this,turn it back on after.
Then run a Spybot scan from safe mode and see what comes back.

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 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.
  • 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 may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Reagardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

Yeah! You guys are the best!

MBAM got rid of most of the problems, including the VIRUS ALERT! text and the missing Start Menu apps. Also the WinCtrl32 files are gone.

I ran Spybot in normal mode (tried it in Safe Mode but the darn thing opened outside the available screen space and I couldn't reach it with the cursor). The good news is that no threats were found.

Here's the MBAM log:

Hi, boopme. I just ran MBAM again and it reports no malicious items detected. Am I free and clear???

OK great, ifall the problems are gone then...

Now you should Set a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since System Restore is a protected directory, your tools can not access it to delete these bad files which sometimes can reinfect your system. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Then go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "OK".
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
