I am running an eMachines with MS XP Home with SP2. My PC recently froze and when I rebooted I was unable to access any devices attached to USB drives or access the Internet. The taskbar won't appear and when I click the Start button nothing happens. Drag and drop functionality is completely disabled, but I am able to copy files using the CMD prompt and the xcopy command. By using this I am able to access devices attached to USB ports.

When I open Task Manager the CPU is running at 100% and there is one application running (SWP2009 Demo).

I'm guessing this is a virus which has gained control of my system.

I tried downloading Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, but when I attempt to install it I get the following error message:

********************************

Run=time error '372':

Failed to load control 'vbalGrid' from vbalsgrid6.ocx. Your version of vbalsgrid6.ocx may be outdated. Make sure you are using the version of thecontrol that

Before we start fixing anything you should print out these instructions or copy them to a NotePad file so they will be accessible. Some steps will require you to disconnect from the Internet or use Safe Mode and you will not have access to this page.

Please download DrWeb-CureIt and save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.

Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Scan with Dr.Web CureIt as follows:
  • Double-click on drweb-cureit.exe to open the program and click Start. (There is no need to update if you just downloaded the most current version
  • Read the Virus check by DrWeb scanner prompt and click Ok where asked to Start scan now? Allow the setup.exe to load if asked by any of your security programs.
  • The Express scan will automatically begin.
    (This is a short scan of files currently running in memory, boot sectors, and targeted folders).
  • If prompted to dowload the Full version Free Trial, ignore and click the X to close the window.
  • If an infected object is found, you will be prompted to move anything that cannot be cured. Click Yes to All.
  • When complete, click Select All, then choose Cure > Move incurable.
    (This will move any detected files to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if they can't be cured)
  • Now put a check next to Complete scan to scan all local disks and removable media.
  • In the top menu, click Settings > Change settings, and UNcheck "Heuristic analysis" under the "Scanning" tab, then click Ok.
  • Back at the main window, click the green arrow "Start Scanning" button on the right under the Dr.Web logo.
  • When the scan is complete, a message will be displayed at the bottom indicating if any viruses were found.
  • Click "Yes to all" if asked to cure or move the file(s) and select "Move incurable".
  • In the top menu, click file and choose save report list.
  • Save the DrWeb.csv report to your desktop.
  • Exit Dr.Web Cureit when done.
  • Important! Reboot your computer because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
  • After reboot, post the contents of the log from Dr.Web in your next reply. (You can use Notepad to open the DrWeb.cvs report)

One other thing I just noticed. When I attempt to shutdown/reboot, the OS brings up a window with "WindowsFormsParkingWindow" in the title bar saying this program can't be stopped, so I need to click "EndNow" so the system can shut down. I've never seen this before.

Should I attempt to install MDAM while in Safe Mode or does it not matter?

I believe my options are dwindling.

when I attempt to run the subinacl.msi I get the following error message:

The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if you are running Windows in safe mode or if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance.

FYI... I was not running in Safe Mode.


One thing I did notice in Task Manager. There are no instances of svchost.exe running. Actually, the file svchost.exe does not exist in the C:\windows\system32 folder.

Here's something interesting. After I noticed the svchost.exe was not in the system32 folder, I tried copying the file from a working laptop to the uncooperative PC and then rebooted.

The taskbar appears, I am able to run Malwarebyte's Anit-Malware, and I do have internet access. THings are running very slowly right now, but I do have more functionality than I had prior to copying the file to the system.

Any thoughts on what I should do to inspect my system?

Run a Quick Scan with Malwarebytes in Normal Mode and post the log.

Your log shows "No action taken" for the items found. Did you make sure that everything was checked and clicked Remove Selected?

You log shows a backdoor infection. Some of these can be very nasty and your online passwords may have been compromised.
