HI all. Two days ago my computer started having pop-ups galore, I couldn't do searches in Google, and the balloon in the bottom right task bar stating "Your computer might be at risk- automatic updates are turned off- your virus protection status is unknown).

I ran the following with their results:
Norton's anti-virus...all clean.
Ad-Aware 2007...multiple infections (didn't wite them down)
SpyBot...5 infections of virtumonde.prx; 2 infections ofvirtumonde
Superanti-spyware...1 infection ofadware.upmedia/searchtool; 1 infection of trojan.media-code/vs; 3 infections of adware.vundo variant/rel
CCleaner...several infections (didn't write the down).
hijackthis...created logfile

I ran the clean function of all of these then disconnected my PC from the internet and reran all the above. Everything seems to be working fine now. No pop-ups and I'm able to search within Google. The only thing I still have is the balloon (red shield with an x in the center). My anti-virus is running and I have automatic updates turned on. Also, when I run a Configsys, I have the following items that I can't seem to find any info on:

Startup Item- ugvystpx
Command- rundll32.exe "C:\windows\system32\ugvystpx.dll",b
Location- software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run

Startup Item- rxeqgvkv
Command- rundll32.exe "C:\windows\system32\rxeqgvkv.dll",s
Location- software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run

I unchecked marked them but have not restarted. They may be associated with some of the recent programs I loaded above but I want to be sure.

I am running Windows XP SP2 Home.

Hopefully this is enough info to get you started.

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.
