Posted 06 January 2009 - 08:59 PM

On the morning of January 2nd I began receiving pop-ups from the Resident Shield function of my AVG 8.0 anti-virus software indicating my svchost.exe file was infected with what it labeled Trojan_Clicker.VMS. I continually selected either the the heal or move to vault options, but it kept returning. I eventually enabled my Spyware Doctor 6.0 software and initiated a scan. The results indicated I was infected with what it labeled Backdoor.Bifrose in the following locations:



I tried to heal/quarantine with Spyware Doctor to no avail. I disabled Spyware Doctor, reenabled AVG 8.0 and continued to receive the Resident Shield alerts indicating my svchost.exe file was infected. At that point I posted my problem in your Am I infected? What do I do? forum. I was assisted by a very friendly/courteous individual with the moniker Rigel, but after three days of trying to help rid my PC of this demon he suggested I post to this forum for further assistance.

I'm running Microsoft XP Home Edition 2002 Service Pack 3. I have a Pentium 4 2.4 GHz with 1 GB RAM.

I would be very grateful if someone could help me with this infection.

Here is the DDS.txt log:

Welcome to the BleepingComputer Forums.

Since it has been a few days since you scanned your computer with HijackThis, we will need a new HijackThis log. If you have not already downloaded Random's System Information Tool (RSIT), please download Random's System Information Tool (RSIT) by random/random which includes a HijackThis log and save it to your desktop. If you have RSIT already on your computer, please run it again.
  • Double click on RSIT.exe to run RSIT.
  • Click Continue at the disclaimer screen.
  • Please post the contents of log.txt.
Thank you for your patience.

Please see Preparation Guide for use before posting about your potential Malware problem.

If you have already posted this log at another forum or if you decide to seek help at another forum, please let us know. There is a shortage of helpers and taking the time of two volunteer helpers means that someone else may not be helped.

Please post your HijackThis log as a reply to this thread and not as an attachment. I am always leery of opening attachments so I always request that HijackThis logs are to be posted as a reply to the thread. I do not think that you are attaching anything scary but others may do so.

While we are working on your HijackThis log, please:
  • Reply to this thread; do not start another!
  • Do not make any changes on your computer during the cleaning process or download/add programs on your computer unless instructed to do so.
  • Do not run any other tool until instructed to do so!
  • Let me know if any of the links do not work or if any of the tools do not work.
  • Tell me about problems or symptoms that occur during the fix.
  • Do not run any other programs or open any other windows while doing a fix.
  • Ask any questions that you have regarding the fix(es), the infection(s), the performance of your computer, etc.
