Hi and thank you in advance to the kind person that helps me with this. The first symptom I had of an infection was that I got a message on my task bar saying that Windows Automatic Updates was turned off and I was unable to turn it back on. Having searched the net for this problem I discovered that Vundo was a possible cause. I use Norton Internet Security 2004 and Norton Antivius 2005 and had run a full system scan earlier in the day which came back clean. I downloaded and ran Nortons Vundo Removal Tool but that did not help. I noticed online that several people were recommending SUPERAntiSpyware to get rid of Vundo. So I downloaded and ran the free Version of that and it did detect several Vundo Files and registry entries. However, it did not get rid of them - they were still there when I ran the scan again. The files that SuperAS reports as Vundo/Variant are C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DDCYROH.DLL and C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\FHXBZP.DLL as well as several registry entries.
I tried running Vundofix which said it detected a problem with the file C:/Windows/System32/divx.dll but again the software seemed unable to remove the problem so I manually deleted that dll file. I looked at what divx.dll was before I deleted it and it was created in 2003 and said it was a divx codec file so I figured it was probably redundant now anyway. I also ran VirtumundoBeGone in Safe Mode - this said it had fixed a problem but again it had not. SO now I have run McAfee Stinger and then HiJackThis to generate the log below. I hope somebody is willing to help me sort this out.

Whilst waiting for somebody to take up my case I have done a little PC 'housekeeping' and performed some actions based on advice that I have read on other threads. What I have done is as follows:
Deleted some programs from the desktop
Removed Napster
Removed Java™ 6 Update 7
Removed Java™ 6 Update 5
Removed Java™ 6 Update 3
Installed Java™ 6 Update 10
Installed Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
Ran MBAM Quick Scan - Objects infected 16, mostly Trojan Vundo
Allowed MBAM to remove items and reboot to remove other items
Ran MBAM Quick Scan again - No malicious items detected

After performing these actions I still had Windows Security Center on my Task Bar telling me that Automatic Updates are OFF. However, now it let me turn Automatic Updates back on! This seems like good news but I would still really like for somebody to run through my logs and make sure my PC is fully clean.

Below are the 2 logs I got from MBAM plus a new HiJackThis log. I hope somebody will take on my case and get back to me soon.

Hi,

It looks like you already got rid of the problem yourself. Just a leftover to deal with and some unecessary entries..

* Start HijackThis, close all open windows leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following:

O4 - HKCU\..\RunOnce: [] C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe http://www.symantec.com/techsupp/servlet/P...000045.00000119 <== not required to start up with Windows. Always a bad idea to have your IE opened at startup.
O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OSA9.EXE <== this is a resource hog
O20 - AppInit_DLLs: fhxbzp.dll <== malware leftover in the registry. File was already removed by MBAM.
O23 - Service: VundoFix Service (VundoFixSvc) - Atribune.org - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\VundoFixSVC.exe <== this service is not required anymore either.

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

Hi miekiemoes. I'm very happy that you have taken on my thread. I have seen you work wonders with Vundo for other people so its great to have your help. Even though I seem to have fixed most of the problem I still consider that you did it for me as my actions were taken from what you asked other people to do :thumbsup:
Anyway, I carried out your instructions and created a new HiJackThis log. I noticed that the 1st 3 items have gone from the log but strangely the Vundofix Service is still there at the bottom of the list??? I am sure I ticked that one too.
Also, for a long time now, so I do not know if it could be related to my recent problems, but Internet Explorer often 'hangs' on this machine. This happens mostly when I go to websites with lots of pictures or video material. An example of the site where I get this problem often is www.totallycrap.com - I go there often when I am bored and look for something funny but that site causes IE7 to crash alot for me on this PC (but not on my laptop which runs Vista). Also, in my 'favourites' list, the icons that are next to my links sometimes seem to get switched around and muddled up. For example, when I go into my Favourites list I might see the 'ebay' icon next to the link for 'Facebook'. Do you understand what I mean? This has been happening for a long time now but today actually all of those icons appear to be correct so maybe I fixed the problem when removing Vundo?
So here is my latest HiJackThis log. Please let me know what to do about the VundoFix Service and also any advice if you have any on what else I might need to do to improve my PC performance.
Many thanks
Steve

Hi,

Did you reboot afterwards after fixing the Vundofix Service entry in HijackThis? Because if you check and fix an O23 entry in HijackThis, HijackThis sets the service to disabled.
Otherwise you can still do this manually via services.msc.
So go to start > run and type services.msc in the field
There in the list, search for "VundoFix Service" and select to stop the service.
For the startuptype, set it to disabled. Then reboot. After reboot, the service should be disabled.

To answer your other questions..

Also, in my 'favourites' list, the icons that are next to my links sometimes seem to get switched around and muddled up

They are called favicons. This is actually nothing to worry about since this issue is known in IE7. In most cases, the problem gets resolved once you clean your cache. To do this,
  • 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 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.
Also, Check your Cache size in Internet Explorer to see if it has the recommended size. If the Cache size is set too low or too high, it can cause slower performance. You can check the Cache Size under Tools > Internet Options > General Tab > Temporary Internet Files > Settings (button) > "Amount of disk space to use". Ideal would be between 50MB - 100MB.
And, also an important step for the correct display of the favicons is.. under the Temporary Internet Files option in your Internet Options > General Tab > Temporary Internet Files > Check for newer versions of stored pages, check the option: "Every Time I visit the webpage" instead of "Automarically"

Above step (clearing the cache), may also resolve this "issue":

but Internet Explorer often 'hangs' on this machine. This happens mostly when I go to websites with lots of pictures or video material

Actually, it's normal that, when you visit a webpage with loads of images or video material present, that it may "hang" a bit, because it needs to download them to your cache first. This is especially when your cache is almost full. That's why it's always a good idea to clean your cache frequently. On top, keep in mind that your Norton also checks every page, so this may cause an extra delay when there's a lot present on a page.

Edited to add:

and also any advice if you have any on what else I might need to do to improve my PC performance.

Please see here: Help! My computer is slow!

I hope this answered your questions. :thumbsup:

Hi. I did reboot my PC but the Vundofix service was still showing up in the HiJackThis log. So I ran services.msc and found that the vundofix service was set to stopped but the startuptype was set to manual. So I changed this to disabled and rebooted again and now it does not show up in HJT log.
When I was talking about IE7 'hanging' I did not mean that it just went slow. I mean it completely freezes and stopped responding. All I can do when this happens is to kill the IE7 window using Task Manager and then starting up a new IE7 window. It seems to happen to me quite often. Do you have any ideas what this could be caused by? If so please let me know what we can check. If not then thank you very much for your help and you can close this thread :thumbsup:

Hi,

I mean it completely freezes and stopped responding. All I can do when this happens is to kill the IE7 window using Task Manager and then starting up a new IE7 window.

As I explained, this happens quite often, also the freezes when you view a webpage where there's a lot of images etc to download. I have the same once in a while as well. That's why I also clear my cache frequently, because a full cache is the main cause.
I don't have this problem in Firefox though.

Actually I just reviewed the stuff that is still showing up in the HiJackThis log and I think there is some other stuff that I may be able to get rid of. There is an item called Snapfish Activia which I think is something related to an online Photo Printing service that I once used but do not need on my system any longer. Also, there is something referring to Napster which is a music program that I removed from my system earlier today. There is another photo service thingy too for bootsphoto.com. I will list these three items from the HJT log below and await you to tell me if it is safe to remove them. Let me know if I need to post the whole HJT log again.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [NapsterShell] C:\Program Files\Napster\napster.exe /systray

If you removed Napster, then you may check and fix that O4 entry in HijackThis.

For the other entries, yes, you may fix them as well. You may actually fix every O16 entries in your log since they are ActiveX components you installed once. If you visit the site again, it will just ask you to reinstall the ActiveX component again.
So, you can check and fix the entries for the O16 entries which are referring to a site you never visit anymore.
If you'll visit that site afterwards again and you already fixed the ActiveX in the O16, it will just ask you to reinstall the ActiveX :thumbsup:

No need to post the whole HijackThislog again. :)

OK great I have done that and all looks good now. It will be interesting to see if IE7 freezes at all over the next few days now that I have done all this housekeeping - I will know what to do in future if this has cured the problem!
My wifes parents have a PC (and my Dad too actually) which is horribly slow so I will also have to try MBAM on their machines and use your 'slow PC' blog to see if I can help them out too.

Oh yeah - that reminds me - on my wifes parents PC automatic updates downloads SP3 for Window XP but if you allow it to be installed the computer will no longer boot up into windows and the only way to get the PC working again is by starting in safe mode and using system restore to a time before SP3 was installed. Can you give me any clues as to how I might be able to fix that problem for them?

Thank you very much once again
Steve

OK now I have a problem which is maybe due to some damage caused over the past 2 days - I tried to run iTunes and instead of it starting up as normal I got the 'iTunes has encountered a problem and needs to close' message with the option to Send Error Report. I tried a couple of times and got the same thing. So I went to add/remove programs in control panel and tried the repair option. After this I still had the same problem. I tried rebooting and no change. So I removed iTunes and then downloaded and reinstalled the program fresh. But I still get the same error every time I try to launch iTunes. Is this something you can help me with?
Thanks
Steve

After I posted the message above I decided I would run another quickscan with MBAM to make sure it did not pick up anything. It did not. But whilst the scan was running Norton popped up a high risk alert saying: Norton AnitVirus has detected and removed a vorus from your computer.

Hi,

on my wifes parents PC automatic updates downloads SP3 for Window XP but if you allow it to be installed the computer will no longer boot up into windows and the only way to get the PC working again is by starting in safe mode and using system restore to a time before SP3 was installed. Can you give me any clues as to how I might be able to fix that problem for them?

You may want to read this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/950717/en-us as I don't know what exact errors appear etc..
Also read here: http://msinfluentials.com/blogs/jesper/arc...ing-xp-sp3.aspx (problems with AMD processors and SP3)

Object Name C:\WINDOWS\system32\xxywVlLC.dll.vir
Virus Name Trojan.Vundo
Action Taken The file was automatically deleted

So I guess this means I am probably not yet clean. I have made a new HJT log for you to look at below. Please let me know what we should do next.

Yes, it's clean. A scanner already renamed that file previously to a .vir extension in order to disable the infection. Now Norton found this leftover (disabled file) and deleted it now. :thumbsup:

OK thats good news about the .vir file. I am running a Full System scan now with MBAM anyway just to be sure.

My big problem now is with iTunes not starting up. I understand you may not be able to help with a software specific thing like this but please let me know if there is anything we can try. I was thinking that the Napster and iTunes software are quite similar - possibly made by the same company? So I am wondering if deleting that Napster thingy that was not removed when I uninstalled the Napster program may have effected iTunes? But then I would have expected removing and reinstalling iTunes to fix that maybe?

Thanks
Steve

Hi,

This doesn't has anything to do with the removal of Napster.
Have you tried to reinstall iTunes again?
