Hi there. I don't know much about this stuff so please bear with me... and sorry for the waffling but I'm just trying to give you all the information I can. Also I tried running DDS but all I get is a blank console (no instructions or anything), no matter how long I leave it.

A few days ago I started getting pop-ups from Firefox while Internet Explorer was redirecting me to a fake anti-virus download page. My internet connection also started really dragging its ass at times while something was definitely hogging my resources. Oh yeah lots of blue screens too.

Using Spyware Terminator and BitDefender I performed several deep scans, which seemed to help a bit but there were definitely lingering problems. A Microsoft OneCare scan seemed to help a bit too and identified the virus as a Vundo Trojan GenY or something like that.

Since downloading HijackThis I've been observing some behaviour which to my untrained eye looks a little suspicious.

Anyway here's my HJT log:

End of file - 10324 bytes

Notice the lines I've highlighted in red. I must have performed a scan at least thirty times over the past few days and there are ALWAYS at least two of these entries (or similar). By similar I mean they always have a filename composed of a consonant-vowel-consonant-vowel...dll (liborazo.dll, bulilufu.dll, barihuye.dll, buloreke.dll) which seems randomly generated to me.

As you'll no doubt be able to see these strange file names appear more than twice on this occasion.

In addition to the entry in hijackthis they always make an appearance in Windows Defender's startup programs list as Run DLL as an App in this manner:

File Name: Rundll32.exe
Display Name: Microsoft Run a DLL as an App
Description: Run a DLL as an App
Publisher: Microsoft Corporation
Digitally Signed By: Microsoft Windows Verification Intermediate PCA
File Type: Application
Startup Value: Rundll32.exe "C:\WINDOWS\system32\barihuye.dll",s
File Path: C:\WINDOWS\system32\Rundll32.exe
File Size: 33280
File Version: 5.1.2600.5512 (xpsp.080413-2105)
Date Installed: 28/02/2006 12:00:00
Startup Type: Registry: Local Machine
Location: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
Classification: Permitted
Ships with Operating System: Yes
SpyNet Voting: Not applicable

If I delete them from this list they or one of their similarly-named friends will respawn almost instantly!

If I try to delete registry values associated with them nothing much happens (no surprise as I don't really know what I'm doing). Any attempt to delete the files from the System32 folder is blocked, but renaming them sometimes kills them, but normally they're replaced by a new variant.

Thanks a bundle in advance. I've found your site and its various articles to be very helpful over the last few days and I didn't want to have to ask for help but... here I am!

Point me to a donation page and I'll happily contribute!

Hi Mr Bean and welcome to Bleeping Computer :thumbsup:

I have a number of steps for you to follow. Please follow them in the order given and and only do as asked, if you have any questions please ask.

For ease it may assist you to either print this out or save it to Notepad.

I am not seeing a firewall listed in your log. If you do not have one currently installed then please use the Windows built in version. We will install a third party version later, if required.

It is importnat to know that only 1 Firewall should be run on a system.

We will begin with ComboFix.exe. Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running the tool:


* Ensure you have disabled all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply for further review.

Did you place the following line in your trusted programmes;

O15 - Trusted Zone: http://www.spoken-web.com

If you did then there is no problems, if you did not then we will deal with it later.

Finally, well for this post, can you post back the following;
  • If you have a Firewall installed or if you activated the Windows Version
  • The log produced by Combofix - C:\ComboFix.txt
  • If you place the programme in your trusted zone
  • A new Hijack This log
  • Any problems with your computer
