Evening.
Never again will I watch Family Guy online. :thumbsup:

I, of course, picked up a whole host of delicious malware, spyware, and adware. (The episode wasn't even that good).

I am running Windows XP Home Edition service pack 3.

After receiving the slew of delicious viri, I went ahead and ran SuperAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes' AntiMalware programs. The combination of these two application seems to have taken care of those monkeys. I also went in afterwards into my browser, set my cookie priveledge level back up to where it was (the virus took it down to "Accept all cookies") and I also removed all the sites that the virus slapped into my Trusted Sites Zone.

However, upon restart of the computer, I receive an error message of: Error Loading C:\Windows\System32\yagejani.dll

It does not seem to affect anything after I close the error warning box but this got me thinking. After the AntiSpyware and AntiMalware applications "did their thing", perhaps a bunch of these DLL files remained? I will never pretend to know a thing about what a DLL file does, so I am appealing to you fine folk with the knowledge. I tried running Advanced WindowCare v2 to see if it would fix the issue, but it did not.

I'm asking that some of you folk take a look at my HiJackThis report and tell me which ones (if any) you'd recommend I get rid of via the HiJackThis application? Any of them jump out at you screaming "DELETE ME" ?? I very much appreciate it, folks! Thank you for your time.

Hello and welcome Gregg W

I moved your post here in case we neeed to do more. I also edited out your HJT log as they are only allowed to be posted in the Malware removal forum and this post would have been sent there. Anyway no big deal but I think that this will fix your problem and save you the waiting time there. Let me know how this goes.

Its not unusual to receive such an error after using specialized fix tools.

A "Cannot find...", "Could not run...", "Error loading... or "specific module could not be found" message is usually related to malware that was set to run at startup but has been deleted. Windows is trying to load this file but cannot locate it since the file was mostly likely removed during an anti-virus or anti-malware scan. However, an associated orphaned registry entry remains and is telling Windows to load the file when you boot up. Since the file no longer exists, Windows will display an error message. You need to remove this registry entry so Windows stops searching for the file when it loads.

To resolve this, download Autoruns, search for the related entry and then delete it.
Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there. (click HERE if you're not sure how to do this.)
Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.
Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.
When done scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom.
Scroll through the list and look for a startup entry related to the file(s) in the error message.
Right-click on the entry and choose delete.
Reboot your computer and see if the startup error returns.

Thank you very much for the response Boopme. Its appreciated.
Autoruns is currently scanning and I'm perusing the list.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but the entry in Autoruns should be one of them that begin with "File Not Found" ?
So far...I don't see the reference to yagejani.dll, but again...Autoruns is not done scanning.

OH! And also thank you for moving this post to this location. I wasn't sure where it belonged. Since the error was a Windows XP error, I thought it might have belonged where I originally put it.

Is autoruns supposed to scan for hours on end?

I see this process running out there under the appinit tab. I tried looking for it online and I get nothing returned.

Could this "zevihami.dll" possibly be the problem since I never see a dll called yagejani.dll?

Good morning.
After following the instructions, BoopMe, the problem persists.
I still get the windows error at popup. I see nothing trying to call yagejani.dll.

Am I allowed to post my HJT log now?

Go to jotti's virusscan or virustotal.com. In the "File to upload & scan" box, click the "browse" button and locate the following file:
C:\WINDOWS\System32\zevihami.dll <- this file
Click "Open", then click the "Submit" button.
-- Post back with the results of the file analysis in your next reply.

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. Regardless 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.

-- MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes (like Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere with the fix or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please disable such programs until disinfection is complete or permit them to allow the changes.

That's part of the fun I think.
I cannot find zevihami in the System32 folder at all. Nor can I find it in a search of my C: drive

I ran MalwareBytes Anti-malware overnight last night. Here are last night's results

Seems as if bohebayosu wanted to be deleted twice. Can't find any of these guys in my System32 folder either.

When I ran Autoruns last night and today, it seems that nothing seemed to change

And running HJT right now, I still see 3 lines referencing bohebayosu

Thanks in advance for any additional advice you can give.

Some infections are difficult to remove completely because of their morphing characteristics which allows the malware to regenerate itself. Sometimes there is a hidden piece of malware which has not been detected that protects files (which have been detected) and registry keys so they cannot be permanently deleted. Disinfection will probably require the use of more powerful tools than we recommend in this forum. Before that can be done you will need you to create and post a hijackthis log for further investigation.

Please read the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log".

When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix. After doing this, we would appreciate if you post a link to your log back here so we know that your getting help from the HJT Team.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your post or make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

Thank you very much BoopMe and Quietman7.
I greatly appreciate your time.
I am currently following the directions posted in the thread "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log".

I will post the HJT log in the appropriate forum when I've completed the requested tasks.

Again...thank you.

Gregg

Your hijackthis log is posted here.

Now that your log is posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic until you are cleared by the HJT Team. If you still need assistance after your log has been reviewed and you have been cleared, please PM me or another moderator and we will re-open this topic.

Good luck with your log.
