Any help is greatly appreciated!

My computer recently got infected with something that creates popups that override my popup blocker. Some popups give me warnings then try to scan my computer with "Antivirus 2009" I suspect that this is the source of the malware to begin with so I immediately close the popups.

My system:
Windows XP Pro
Explorer 7
Earthlink DSL connection
Earthlink Protection Control Center antivirus and firewall (ELPCC)

What I have tried:
Cleaning my hard drive of temp, cookies, prefetch, etc. and any programs I don't want and can safely eliminate
Repeatedly updating then scanning and deleting with ELPCC
Using HiJackthis and Autorun to delete (when I know its safe) or ignore suspicious files nd programs (tried numerous combinations of this)

I seem to be able to slow the popups sometimes but suspect there is something in the background reinstalling viruses. When I scan with ELPCC it shows several adware, malware, and viruses that I delete. The subsequent report then says it deleted most but ignored two. I think the two are the following viruses that have shown up repeatedly:

C:\windows\system32\catroot\W#@/downldr2.dvhe & .dvhf

These two files do not show up when I explore the relevant folder

I have attached my HJT log

Thanks again for any help!!!

I apologize for the very long delay. We have a huge backlog of HijackThis Logs to handle and it has been taking us greater time than normal to get caught up. If you are still having a problem, and want us to analyze your information, please reply to this topic stating that you still need help and I will work with you on resolving your computer problems. If your problem has been resolved, please post a reply letting us know so we can close your topic.

Unfortunately, if I do not hear back from you within 5 days, I will be forced to close your topic. If you still need help after I have closed your topic, feel free to create a new one.

Once again, I apologize for the delay in responding to this topic.

Yes, please, I still need help!

Since I posted this topic I downloaded the free Avira Antivirus software and scanned my computer. It listed the following viruses:

TR/PSW.AGENT.PR in C:\windows\system32\_C00FCB40.dat
also in C:\ARK48.tmp
TR/SPY.AGENT.NVZ in C:\windows32\_C002740C.dat
also in C:\ARK49.tmp
TR/AGENT.159744.D in C:\windows\system32\mmx77442.dll
also in C:\windows\system32\_c00FAIF.exe

I selected delete to rid my computer of these but I still get persistant warnings about TR/PSW.AGENT.PR that keeps coming back after deleting. I usually end up deactivating the Avira software to make my computer usable. Then I occationally get a firewall warning from my Earthlink Protection Control Center (PCC) software about an unnamed site accessing my computer. Blocking this usually results in my Internet Explorer unable to access some sites. The good news is that the popups have stopped but scans with PCC still show the viruses that it did before and it ignores them when I select to delete them.

Thanks again for any help you can give me!

Please visit the following link and use the instructions there to post a ComboFix log as a reply to this topic:


When following the instructions please install the Windows XP Recovery Console if you are using XP.

After running ComboFix, please post the ComboFix log as well as a brand new HijackThis as a reply to this topic.

I tried to very carefully follow your instructions. A few unexpected things happened:

1. I downloaded WindowsXP-KB310994-SP2-Home-BootDisk-ENU from the microsoft website to my desktop then dragged it to the ComboFix Icon as per the instructions. Immediately afterwards the Run Combofix Windows Security Warning came up instead of the prompt asking if I want to proceed with scanning my computer. In my confusion I clicked run. Later I noticed from the Combofix logfile that the Recovery Console was not installed. Fortunately things seem to be ok.
2. When I ran Combofix I got a message that there was a newer version available and chose to download it before running.
3. While running Combofix I had all programs closed, including my Antivirus programs deactivated. After running all stages but before preparing the log report my computer rebooted, including prompting for my user password, which I entered to get the system to proceed. In the process of rebooting, the Avira and possibly Earthlink Protection Control Center antivirus software reactivated while Combofix was preparing the Log Report. I heeded the warnings about touching the computer while Combofix was running so I didn't try to shut them down.

Attached are the log files you requested. I had no problem accessing the internet and haven't got any messages from my antivirus programs so I am very optimistic and appreciative. I hope it continues!

Looks good now. How does your computer feel to you?

Shortly after doing the procedure you recommended I rescanned with Avira and found the following two viruses that I had found previously:

TR/PSW.AGENT.PR in C:\windows\system32\_C00FCB40.dat
TR/AGENT.159744.D in C:\windows\system32\mmx77442.dll

but this time when I selected delete they were deleted for good. A later scan by Avira & also by my Earthlink Protection Control Center show my computer clean. The only thing I notice now is quite a wait when closing Windows Explorer but everything else seems back to normal. I'll reply again in a few days.
