Posted 25 February 2009 - 12:40 AM

Hey so I found you guys through another help website when I googled my problem and this was the thread from the other forums that is the exact same problem as me: http://aumha.net/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=...p;sk=t&sd=a

so he posted this (in case you dont want to go there):

my computer started acting weird today when i got home. on the left upperside of the screen a little box opens by it self with the words personalized settings. but before that happens the whole screan with the desktop icons disappear and that when the box comes up. i been trying to see what the box says but the words inside the box only come up for less the half a second. all the i been able to see is (c/recycler\s-1-521-14)(C;RECYCLER\S-1-5-21-1-482) ( C:/ RECYCLER/S-1-5-21-1482-476501-1644491937...) or something like that there is still more after that four but thats what i think comes up when that happens can u please tell me whats wrong with it this things happens at about 2 minutes apart it a recurring thing.

basically, that's exactly what is happening to me, but it's not every 2 minutes, it seems to be random. i thought at first it was like every 5-10 mins but now it hasnt happened for a while, i think . . . all i know is that the first time it happened, i was like "WTF" and it went away, BUT the 2nd time it happened my bottom task bar where the start menu is just totally disappeared and didn't come back, AND when i closed all my programs, the desktop had no files on it. so, i restarted the comp and it still seems to be happening. i ran windows defender but only the quick scan and it didnt find anything.

i talked to my mom and she said she downloaded the newest version of adobe flash yesterday to watch a video on the nytimes.com website but i already have the most up-to-date stuff and she just didn't allow the script to run in firefox's noscript add-on . . . so im not sure if that had anything to do with it but i know she didnt install it, and where she downloaded it from was actually adobe's site.

another thing, my cruzer 4gb memory stick that i use at school has been around for more than a year or almost 2 now and it might be a little messed-up from the school computers, just an fyi.

thanks for any help i can get here.


i ran the DDS and got the HJT log, so here it is:

yeah so just now i had these 6 or 7 "applications" running, other than firefox, called "proyecto" but the thing is i wasn't actually running these "applications" ... i closed these and then went to my processes tab and noticed these two processes with 667.exe and 789.exe running.

now im just leaving my task manager open and that personalized settings thing came back up and then i saw in my task manager applications tab three new "applications" trying to start-up. 1 said Project1, the other 2 were proyecto AND THEN in my processes tab those 667.exe and 789.exe processes were back!!!


also, i went to msconfig and disabled my start-up functions and disabled all. then i also went to the services tab and checked the 'hide all microsoft services' option and then disabled all. then i restarted my comp. JUST AN FYI

and now, it seems, every 5 mins or so this project1 and proyecto are showing up in my "applications"

also, i have all these weird letters and numbers.exe (e.g., wazj74xdubgbe.exe) in my startup tab in msconfig that wasn't there before . . . they seem to be all located in my C: document /temp folder

any advice as to stop this person from hijacking my internet or whatever they are doing???

attached are these 2 pics i took of the stuff in my processes and applications tab.

edit: after this personalized settings thing happens, i think, in my task manager processes i see this crack thing and also there is this dwwin.exe process that disappears when i end the tasks.

Hello. I am PropagandaPanda (Panda or PP for short), and I will be helping you.

Disable Realtime Protection
Antimalware programs can interfere with ComboFix and other tools we need to run. Please temporarily disable all realtime protections you have enabled. Refer to this page, if you are unsure how.

Download and Run ComboFix
Download Combofix by sUBs from any of the links below, and save it to your desktop.
Link 1, Link 2, Link 3
  • Close/disable all anti-virus and anti-malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix. Refer to this page if you are not sure how.
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe and follow the prompts. If you are using Windows Vista, right click the icon and select "Run as Administrator". You will not recieve the prompts below if you are not using Windows XP. ComboFix will check to see if you have the Windows Recovery Console installed.
  • If you did not have it installed, you will see the prompt below. Choose YES.
    Posted ImagePosted Image

  • When the Recovery Console has been installed, you will see the prompt below. Choose YES.
    Posted Image
  • When finished, ComboFix will produce a report for you. Please post the contents of the log (C:\ComboFix.txt).
Leave your computer alone while ComboFix is running. ComboFix will restart your computer if malware is found; allow it to do so.

Download and Run Scan with GMER
We will use GMER to scan for rootkits.

Please download GMER.zip to your desktop from any of the links below:
  • Right click on GMER.zip and select "Extract All".
  • Close all other open programs as there is a slight chance your computer will crash.
  • Double click GMER.exe. Your security programs may detect GMER's driver trying to load. Allow it.
  • You may see a warning saying "GMER has detected rootkit activity". If so, select NO.
  • Leaving the settings at default, click Scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click Save and save the log onto your desktop.
Please include the log in your next reply.
In your next reply include:
-the ComboFix log
-the GMER scan log

Please also tell me of any changes you have made to your computer since you started your topic.

With Regards,
The Panda

Hi there PP, I appreciate the reply but I couldn't wait any longer and consulted with a friend who suggested I download "Malwarebytes Anti-Malware" program. So I did, and I ran it, and it found like 70+ trojans and got rid of them all, well mostly all, I had to re-start the comp after the deletion because it couldn't delete like 5 of them at that time.

I've also kept my Windows Startup tab from msconfig fairly clean so now I only have msn showing in the bottom right when I turn on the comp.

Do you think it would be a good idea to still carry-out your instructions???

Though MalwareBytes is a great program, it will not cover everything.

I would suggest following the directions anyway so we can check for anything left.
