Hi all!

Last night I was browsing on Facebook and an entertainment site I use frequently when my laptop started to stall. I left the room for a moment while it sorted itself out, and when I returned I discovered that my laptop was restarting itself. Once I had loaded up again, I noticed a 'delself' icon on my desktop and kept on getting taskbar messages telling me that my computer was infected and that I needed to download anti-spyware software. I use Windows Firewall and that had been turned off, but I was able to turn it back on again without any problems.

I use AVG so was surprised that a virus had installed itself. I tried to search Google for 'delself' to find out more, but the virus seemed to be preventing me from finding out any information because it kept on forwarding me onto an Oxfam page or something. Fortunately, I have a desktop computer too so I was able to find out about the delself virus from there and how to remove it.

I found one site (here) which had a step-by-step removal guide, but I wasn't even able to follow the first step, which was as follows:

Once disconnect from the internet, click start>>Run and type in msconfig. Be very careful here. Click the startup tab, and look for the following: Braviax.exe, burito.exe, delself, cru629. Uncheck any and all instances of this appearing there. Click apply, then ok. It will ask to reboot, do so now.

Every time I typed in 'msconfig' (which I have never heard of or needed to use before) I ended up with an error message saying: "Windows cannot find msconfig. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search."

After browsing on the net some more I discovered that the taskbar messages at the bottom of the screen were part of the virus and obviously ignored them after that.

In the end, I downloaded the MalwareBytes program as recommended on a site and it subsequently found & deleted 22 infected/suspicious files.

Most of the features of the virus have thankfully stopped having an effect on my computer now - no taskbar messages and I can now look at what I want from Google again without the virus interfering. The virus seems to have reset my homepage to Google, but that's not a big deal.

What is concerning me, though, is that when I use Start>Run and type in 'msconfig', I'm still getting the same error message. Like I said earlier, I've never used it before or known what it is, so I suppose it's possible that the error isn't anything new, but I did read online that not being able to access msconfig is a regular warning sign that you have some sort of virus.

So I suppose what I'm looking for advice on is whether my laptop is now safe & if there's any way I can get it completely back to normal.

Thanks in advance for any help!

ETA: I'm using Windows XP Home Edition, Version 2002, Service Pack 2.

Hi boopme. Thanks for taking the time to respond.

MalwareBytes log

(Note: Looks like there were actually 73 infected files, rather than the 22 I mentioned earlier. Also, I should mention that this log is from a Quick Scan, but when I did a Complete one today, nothing was found. Finally, I starred out part of one item because it contained my full name.)

You did reboot after the mbam scan?? You should run it again also,post that log.
Yeah we don't need the cookies. BUT the DNS Codec may have been a problem. These are responsible for modifying the nameserver configuration on the infected machine to redirect DNS queries through a remote IP determined by the installer. In other words they phone home when they can find info like passwords and account numbers. Do you do banking on this machine?

Because of it I want you to run SDFix after MBam...
Before we start fixing anything you should print out these instructions or copy them to a NotePad file so they will be accessible. Some steps will require you to disconnect from the Internet or use Safe Mode and you will not have access to this page.

Please download SDFix by AndyManchesta and save it to your desktop.
When using this tool, you must use the Administrator's account or an account with "Administrative rights"
  • Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%
  • (this is the drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix).
  • DO NOT use it just yet.
Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Open the SDFix folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
  • Type Y to begin the cleanup process.
  • It will remove any Trojan Services or Registry Entries found then prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
  • Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
  • When the PC restarts, the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
  • Once the desktop icons load the SDFix report will open on screen and also save into the SDFix folder as Report.txt.
  • Copy and paste the contents of the results file Report.txt in your next replyalong with a new HijackThis log.
-- If this error message is displayed when running SDFix: "The command prompt has been disabled by your administrator. Press any key to continue..."
Please go to Start Menu > Run > and copy/paste the following line:
%systemdrive%\SDFix\apps\swreg IMPORT %systemdrive%\SDFix\apps\Enable_Command_Prompt.reg
Press Ok and then run SDFix again.

-- If the Command Prompt window flashes on then off again on XP or Win 2000, please go to Start Menu > Run > and copy/paste the following line:
%systemdrive%\SDFix\apps\FixPath.exe /Q
Reboot and then run SDFix again.

-- If SDFix still does not run, check the %comspec% variable. Right-click My Computer > click Properties > Advanced > Environment Variables and check that the ComSpec variable points to cmd.exe.
%SystemRoot%\system32\cmd.exe

Hi boopme. Thanks again for helping me out and sorry I've taken a while to respond.

I have been rebooting after scanning MBAM. I re-scanned today and it found two more infected files, but a subsequent scan has found nothing. I've posted these logs below, along with my SDFix log. Between the two MBAM scans I deleted my Temporary Internet Files as a precaution, which explains why there's less 'Objects Scanned' the second time around.

I still can't access 'msconfig' using Start>Run, which is, at the moment, the only lasting damage I'm noticing.

As for banking, I have used this machine for it in the past, but not since I first started having trouble with the virus. I don't save passwords or anything like that, but I'm going to change them as a precaution.
