Posted 05 February 2009 - 12:54 AM

I did a fresh install of XP Home on Feb 1st and I believe I was infected from a hidden autoloading trojan dropper from one of my other drives.
I had plugged an external drive in order to copy over my ethernet driver downloaded from another computer so I could continue updating thru the net.
Since then I've yet to find the originating source of the trojan dropper. I've only found where the trojans are dropped.
Finding and getting rid of the source problem files is difficult for me because I have 4 internal drives and 4 external drives (not all hooked up right now of course) not including things categorized as removable media such as a SD card with card reader from my camera and my PSP.

My issues:

Trojan.Dropper/Multi-MBAD (dropping URET463.EXE in system32 - cannot find originating files)
Trojan.Dropper/Sys-NV (dropping GODERT0.DLL in system32 - cannot find originating files)
autorun.inf files (recreating themselves on internal and external drives)
yfmqo.cmd (recreating themselves on internal and external drives)
Loss of Folder Options control with ability to see hidden files/folders (occasionally fixed this problem with a scan or two but would return)
Loss of msconfig control with ability to apply changes (Automatically rechecked on restart despite System Restore turned off)

What I've tried: (Scanning in SafeMode/RegularMode - System Restore On/Off - Installed Individually/WorkingTogether)

SuperAntiSpyware (Scanning in SafeMode/RegularMode - System Restore On/Off - Definations fully updated in Safe Mode)
Spybot (Scanning in SafeMode/RegularMode - System Restore On/Off - Definations fully updated in Safe Mode)
Malware Bytes (Scanning in SafeMode/RegularMode - System Restore On/Off - Definations fully updated in Safe Mode)
Ad-Aware (Scanning in SafeMode/RegularMode - System Restore On/Off - Definations fully updated in Safe Mode)
ComboFix (Mainly to remove autorun.inf and yfmqo.cmd files from drives)

My name is Extremeboy (or EB for short), and I will be helping you with your log.

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine. If you have not done so, include a description of your problem, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

If you do not make a reply in 5 days, we will need to close your topic.

You may want to keep the link to this topic in your favourites. Alternatively, you can click the Posted Image button at the top bar of this topic and Track this Topic. The topics you are tracking can be found here.

Please take note of some guidelines for this fix:
  • Refrain from making any changes to your computer including installing/uninstall programs, deleting files, modifying the registry, and running scanners or tools.
  • If you do not understand any step(s) provided, please do not hesitate to ask before continuing. I would much rather clarify instructions or explain them differently than have something important broken.
  • Even if things appear to be better, it might not mean we are finished. Please continue to follow my instructions and reply back until I give you the "all clean". We do not want to clean you part-way, only to have the system re-infect itself.
  • Please reply using the Posted Image button in the lower right hand corner of your screen. Do not start a new topic. The logs that you post should be pasted directly into the reply.
  • Old topics are closed after 3 days with no reply, and working topics are closed after 5 days. If for any reason you cannot complete instructions within that time, that's fine, just post back here so that we know you're still here.
