Hello, and first off I want to say thanks for your time in helping all of us who aren't as knowledgeable with computers. I would like to think I know more than average but you guys really know what you are doing.

Ok, yesterday I was infected to be what I figured was a vundo(A .rar file, trying to download software). I lost C:/D: drive access, lost task manager, had a new background with threatening biohazard symbol and phrase, computer was slowed down to just about a stop with some process labeled: ppxcs.exe, had pop ups, and was unable to run any of the very few apps that I had access to.

After some time I was able to grab SUPERantispyware from a friends comp with a flash drive and run it. That go rid of most of the problem, still however, I was unable to run HJT or any other apps. After hours of trying I was able to get my malwarebytes software to run and that helped a little, still had that unknown process which was using 99-100% CPU. But I was finally able to run HJT (Log posted below) Oh, also, when I log into windows XP there is a black box that appears in the top left hand corner for a split second, I know that isn't good.

Any help would be appreciated, and I would love to know if it's safe to delete that process. Also, my SUPERantispyware log is available if you need it.

Hello Catnap and welcome at BleepingComputer,

Sorry to have kept you waiting for so long, but the forums are really busy.
If you still need help :

1. * Clean your Cache and Cookies in IE:
  • Close all instances of Outlook Express and Internet Explorer
  • Go to Control Panel > Internet Options > General tab
  • Under Browsing History, click Delete.
  • Click Delete Files, Delete cookies and Delete history
  • Click Close below.
* Clean your Cache and Cookies in Firefox (In case you also have Firefox installed):
  • Go to Tools > Options.
  • Click Privacy in the menu..
  • Click the Clear now button below.. A new window will popup what to clear.
  • Select all and click the Clear button again.
  • Click OK to close the Options window
* Clean other Temporary files + Recycle bin
  • Go to start > run and type: cleanmgr and click ok.
  • Let it scan your system for files to remove.
  • Make sure Temporary Files, Temporary Internet Files, and Recycle Bin are the only things checked.
  • Press OK to remove them.
2. After reboot,
Start HijackThis, close all open windows leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following, if still present :O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Sccs] C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\sccs.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Css] C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\css.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ppxcs] C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\ppxcs.exe
O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Restrictions present
O20 - AppInit_DLLs: karina.dat

Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.
Make sure your Internet Explorer is closed when you click Fix Checked!

3. Please visit this webpage for instructions for downloading and running ComboFix:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

Please ensure you read this guide carefully and install the Recovery Console first.
The Windows Recovery Console will allow you to boot up into a special recovery mode, in case your computer has a problem after an attempted removal of malware. This allows us to help you. (WinXP SP3 users, please download the appropriate SP2 file, Home or Pro, to install the RC)

In the event you already have Combofix, and you receive a warning that a newer version is available, then please download the latest version as described in the tutorial.
It must be saved directly to your desktop.


Note: Make sure not to click ComboFix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall or freeze.

Please post the log from ComboFix (can also be found as C:\ComboFix.txt) in your next reply. :thumbsup:

If you have any questions along the way, STOP and ask them before proceeding !!

Greetings,
Thunder
