(A repeat of my post in the "Introductions" forum)
Starting the new year right, with some type of malware/virus problem. Glad to find a forum that can help!

I am running WinXP on an AMD Presario desktop - not a high-end machine. AVG Free and Comodo Firewall in the background. Was updating artwork in iTunes today and think that is when I got hit by something searching for a pic of Bruce Springsteen's Blood Brothers EP.

Before I shut down the machine, it looks like it took over Windows Update and was trying to get me to run "RapidAntivirus". Unfortunately, I believe at one point that I did run it. After an hour, yanked the plug on both the PC and router. Using a laptop with ethernet to the router to login now. Also have the wife's netbook with Verizon mobile broadband access if necessary.

Would definitely appreciate any assistance the community could provide - thanks in advance!

Hi and welcome to BleepingComputer :thumbsup:

The process of cleaning your computer may require temporarily disabliling some security programs. If you are using SpyBot Search and Destroy, please refer to Note 2 at the bottom of this page.

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.

Note 2:
-- 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. To disable these programs, please view this topic: How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs

Thanks - I have this on a flash drive that is not compromised, so I will burn it to a CD to transfer it to the desktop of the problem PC. Should I boot the problem PC in safe mode or regular mode before launching the application?

Also, I keep getting the following pop-up that has the Windows red X:

(changingname.exe) - Bad Image
The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\klfdoh.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette.

Everytime I click "OK" or "X", the part indicated above as "changingname" keeps changing to various things each time I click "OK" or "X".

Vundo is a very hard infection to battle - it make take some work.

Please print out and follow these instructions: "How to use SDFix". <- This program is for Windows 2000/XP ONLY.
When using this tool, you must use the Administrator's account or an account with "Administrative rights"
  • Disconnect from the Internet and temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any real time protection programs before performing a scan.
  • When done, the SDFix report log will open in notepad and automatically be saved in the SDFix folder as Report.txt.
  • If SDFix is unable to run after rebooting from Safe Mode, run SDFix in either Mode, and type F, then press Enter for it to finish the final stage and produce the report.
  • Please copy and paste the contents of Report.txt in your next reply.
  • Be sure to renable you anti-virus and and other security programs before connecting to the Internet.
-- If the computer has been infected with the VirusAlert! malware warning from the clock and the Start Menu icons or drives are not visible, open the SDFix folder, right-click on either the XP_VirusAlert_Repair.inf or W2K VirusAlert_Repair.inf (depending on your version of Windows) and select Install from the Context menu. Then reboot to apply the changes.

I am in Windows SafeMode and have started SDFix routine trying to go from Step 9 to Step 10, but I keep getting the following pop-up that has the Windows red X:

(rtsdnif.exe OR MD5File.exe OR dnif.exe OR sc.exe OR CSWeg.exe) - Bad Image
The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\klfdoh.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette.

Everytime I click "OK" or "X", the part indicated above in parenthesis keeps changing to the other various things each time I click "OK" or "X". Not sure if SDFix is even working through - it has taken over 25 minutes at this juncture.

Finally got the "Please be patient as this may take up to 20 minutes" line to appear - went into Task Manager and did an end process on "dnif.exe" and that appears to have done the trick to get this line to appear. But, still have one of the "dnif.exe" boxes up.

It is still running - no log at this point. Will follow the new steps you have outlined and report back. Thanks!

Any suggestions on how I can get this PC back into Normal mode? I am thinking using Task Manager for a reboot...

Give it a little while to run. If it doesn't finish, go ahead and halt the process with task manager.

I did the Restart from Task Manager and after a few of the Red X pop-ups, SDFix came back up with a blue screen stating "Finishing Malware Check" and "Please be Patient as this part may take several minutes.."

Only one more Red X popup.

In the meantime, I have a CD ready with SuperAntiSpyware and ATF-Cleaner
