Referred here from: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/207822/infected-with-cwindowssystemwmibusexe/ ~ OB


I have been infected by some kind of trojan/virus located at C:\windows\system\wmibus.exe
This link contains the exact description of my problem

Even after cleaning the registry and deleting wmibus.exe and rebooting the file comes and back and all the registry settings come back. I have disabled the service wmibus from services.msc and run combofix and removed some of the exes which were found in system32 folder

In the registry there are also entries like the following which appear even after i delete them

Name: Type
Data: 0x1

Name: Start
Data: 0x3

Name: ErrorControl
Data: 0x0

Name: ImagePath
Data: \??\C:\WINDOWS\System32\Drivers\vpmveiun.sys


The main problem is the svchost.exe starts taking up 100 % cpu time and there is internet traffic even when there is no application running and accessing the internet. When I open the browser (ANY) i can not open any link. the "flow indicator" of the browser moves for a second and stops and no page or links open.

There is a file called ndisio.sys in the C:\windows\system32\drivers\ folder.
When searching google i found that this was a trojan and was told to delete it. When i delete this and reboot i lose my network connections and no properties show up when i click the network icon in the taskbar. to undo this problem i have to do a windows restore to get back to a previous day which has that file ndisio.sys

I am sorry to have taken up your time. But i was in a bit of a hurry so i decided to finally re-install windows XP.
Thanks a lot for your help, and I am sure there are many out there who are facing the same problem and will need your help. I hope i can track your help to them
