Hi guys, ive never posted on here b4, and i really need help. its been like 5 years since ive been on the net (maybe more) and its jjust volitile. my computer is unstable. im noticing data being sent to unknown IP addy's.. I have 7 svchosts...
this computer was given to me and im pretty sure theres alot wrong with it and i have tried to catch up and heres what ive done

1)Process Explorer.exe Stumbled accross it it helped me cut a few auto runs out that i didnt need learnt about identifying good sources. sped up the computer a little

2)RegCure I know im gonna get bleep for this.. i dl'd regcure and it told me i had like 1300 errors?? and it offered to fix 1.. so i YT'd a crack and dl'd a random .exe from some server host and replaced it with my reg cure. i know this now was the dumbest thing i coulda done but i cant undo it. i promise after your help i wont do this stupid stuff again. ive spent a number of hours droning through was to prevent infection and phising filter software and another one that gives reports on thousands of websites *weary*

3) Comodo Internet Security I have this its my anti virus, firewall, and my outbound connection monitor (which has been very supsicious) there are 4 svchost.exe's *listening* for info in my Inbound/Outbound monitor. heres an example.
came from windows/system/svchost.exe 192.168.0.1: tooquicktocatch port listening 2869 sent 55kb?? recieved 66kb?
these happen while im doing nothing on my pc.

4) MalwareBites AntiMalware - Dl'd and ran found some stuff

5) SysInternals Auto Runs

6) Unhackme

7)Sysinternals AutoRuns

8) CCCleaner.exe

9) SpyBot S&D

:thumbsup: im not gonna get into too much detail but a few times ive had a instant system crash taht rebooted me to a green screen ive never seen. it told me if it was the first time ive seen it to ignore it and continue on so i did. then i saw it again a few days later (i was away for a few days) so its worrying me.

I got rid of a rootkit somewhere in the middle there.

and this all started after i installled an active x control to view a movie online. and my Windows Xp Firewall went nuts (i had to uninstall it and install Comodo.

  • Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
Note: On Vista, "Windows Temp" is disabled. To empty "Windows Temp" ATF-Cleaner must be "Run as an Administrator".

----------------------------------------------------
Then update mbam and run a full scan.
Please post the log



The process of cleaning your computer may require you to temporarily disable some security programs. If you are using SpyBot Search and Destroy, please refer to Note 2 at the bottom of this page.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.
  • Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note:
-- If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

Note 2:
-- MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes (like Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere with the fix or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please disable such programs until disinfection is complete or permit them to allow the changes. To disable these programs, please view this topic: How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs

I already had MBAM.exe so I opened it and asked it to update. it found 2908kb to update.

ran Quick Scan in MBAM 4 min 23 sec Duration. 2 files found infected Zango and another (Zango has been here along time) (Multiple MBAM Scans and even when it tries to delete on restart) Log as follows
