Please could you help me with a problem that I am experiencing with my Windows XP computer. I have a Trojan Horse virus and every time I connect to the Internet, Norton Antivirus detects the virus svchos1at.exe. It is unable to delete the virus and denies access to the file.
I have already done the following:
Checked that my computer is totally up to date on windowsupdate website
Latest Norton Antivirus definitions
Latest Lavasaoft adware definitions
Latest Spybot updates
Deleted temporary Internet files and cookies
Turned off system restore
Booted into safe mode
Ran all three of the above and nothing was found
Rebooted and virus still there as soon as I connect to the Internet

Ran Hijack this and this is my log file:

Hi, shmat,

We cannot do anything with HijackThis until it is moved into a permanent folder of its own where it can save backups.

Click My Computer, then C:\
In the menu bar, File->New->Folder.
That will create a folder named New Folder, which you can rename to "HJT" or "HijackThis".
Now you have C:\HJT\ folder. Put your HijackThis.exe there.

Please run these online scans:
Housecall: http://housecall.trendmicro.com/housecall/start_corp.asp
Let it remove what it finds. Make sure your IE security is NOT blocking the ActiveX download . (It takes a long time for the Active-X to download prior to the scan... be patient as you may think nothing is happening. The download is especially slow if you are on dial-up.)

Panda: http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
Be sure to put a check in the box by "Auto Clean" before you do the scan. If it finds anything that it cannot clean have it delete it or make a note of the file location so you can delete it yourself.


Then, launch HJT (which is now in its own folder) and please post a fresh log so we can clean the rest. Thanks.

Hi again,

I have rebooted and the Virus seems to have disappeared. I would still be most appreciative if you could check the HJT logs and tell me if there is anything that can be deleted.

Thank you very much for your help in this matter. This is a great website!

regards

shmat

Hi shmat,
You're welcome. You have done a good job so far. :thumbsup: Things are looking better, but there is still some cleaning to do. You will be working in Safemode, so you might want to print these instructions.

Turn on the computer.
Immediately begin tapping the F8 key (or F5 on some computers)
Use the arrow keys to highlight Safe Mode and press the Enter key.

Configure to show all files/folders:
Go to Start>Search and at the top select Tools>Folder Options
Select the View tab
Display the contents of system folders
Show hidden files and folders
Uncheck: Hide protected operating system files
Click on Apply.
Next go to the side of the Search box and select All files and folders. Go down to More advanced options.
Be sure the first three boxes are selected:

Hi Bugbatter,

I have done everything that you mentioned. I had one query. You mentioned to "Show hidden files and folders" both times. Do i actually need to "Hide hidden files and folders"?

Yes, after you unhide those protected system Files, it is always good to go back and hide them again, so something important does not get deleted by accident.

Your log looks great! :thumbsup:
There are a few optional things that can be fixed depending on your needs. They use resources and are unnecessary. Fixing them here will not prevent you from opening them manually if needed.

Launch HijackThis.
Your choice:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" -atboottime
(System Tray access to Apple's "Quick Time" viewer from version 5 onwards)

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TkBellExe] \"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe\" -osboot
( RealPlayer scheduler)

O4 - Global Startup: Adobe Gamma Loader.lnk = C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Calibration\Adobe Gamma Loader.exe
( Adjusts monitor colours across all programs, including Photoshop. It is needed by some graphics professionals who want their monitor calibrated. Most home users will not need it, and thus should remove this entry.)

Close all windows and click 'Fix Checked".

Reboot. If everything in running well, it would be a good idea to flush System Restore and create a clean Restore Point.
To flush the XP System Restore Points:
(Using XP, you must be logged in as Administrator to do this.)
Go to Start>Run and type msconfig Press enter.
When msconfig opens, click the Launch System Restore Button.
On the next page, click the System Restore Settings Link on the left.
Check the box labeled Turn Off System Restore.

Reboot. Go back in and turn System Restore ON. A new Restore Point will be created.

That should do it.

Here is my standard list of simple steps that you can take to reduce the chance of infection in the future. You may have already taken some of these steps:
1. Visit Windows Update:
Make sure that you have all the Critical Updates recommended for your operating system and IE. The first defense against infection is a properly patched OS.
Windows Update: http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/en/default.asp

2. Adjust your security settings for ActiveX:
Go to Internet Options/Security/Internet, press 'default level', then OK.
Now press "Custom Level."
In the ActiveX section, set the first two options ("Download signed and unsigned ActiveX controls) to 'prompt', and 'Initialize and Script ActiveX controls not marked as safe" to 'disable'.

3. Download and install the following free programs:
a. SpywareBlaster: http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
b. SpywareGuard: http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareguard.html
Periodically check for updates.

4. Keep your antivirus software and firewall software up to date.
Note: Zone Alarm Firewall (Zone Labs) http://www.zonelabs.com/store/content/home.jsp is free.
Also Sygate has an optional free version: http://smb.sygate.com/download_buy.htm

5. You might consider installing Mozilla / Firefox.
http://www.mozilla.org/

6. Install spyware detection and removal programs:
You may also want to consider installing either or both of AdAware (free version) and Spybot S&D (freeware). Use these programs to regularly scan your system for and remove many forms of spyware/malware.
a. AdAware: http://www.lavasoft.de/software/adaware/

b. SpyBot S&D: http://safer-networking.org/en/news/2005-05-31.html
http://www.majorgeeks.com/download2471.html
http://security.kolla.de/index.php?lang=en&page=download
** If you already have Spybot 1.3 update to version 1.4.
Before installing Spybot S&D 1.4 remove 1.3 like this:
Open 1.3 . Go to Immunize. Click on UNDO at the top. At the bottom, take the checkmark OUT of "BrowserHelper> "Enable permanent blocking..."
This will disable all protection. Make sure ALL has been disabled.
If you are using Spybot's TeaTimer disable all protection there as well.
If Opera Browser is installed, de-select protection for Opera Immunity
Then go to Add/Remove programs via Start>Settings>Control Panel and REMOVE the old 1.3 Spybot.
Reboot
Go to your Program Files and delete the old Spybot folder.
Delete the old desktop icon.
Then you are ready to install the new version.

I would check for updates in SpyBot once a week or so.
Check for updates in Adaware frequently.
I scan with each at least weekly.

7. The "a Squared" Trojan Scanner has a free version. It is an onboard trojan scanner that is installed much like Spybot/AdAware but handles trojans.
Download free from "a Squared" http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/free/ Install it.
Run and activate your free version with a Squared and then select
Scan your computer for malware infections .
Then select any/all drives.
Finally Scan selected folders.

8. Before using or purchasing any Spyware/Malware protection/removal program, always check the Rogue/Suspect Spyware List. It will save you a lot of grief, as well as money if you are thinking of purchasing. Here is the link: http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware.htm
If you want to know just how effective your anti-spyware program is, or how well any of the "rogue" programs listed at the above link work, check this for an independent comparison of several anti-spyware programs: http://www.spywarewarrior.com/asw-test-guide.htm

9. I also suggest that you delete any files from "temp", "tmp" folders. In Internet Explorer, click on "Tools" => "Internet Options" => "Delete Files" and select the box that says "Delete All Offline Content" and click on "OK" twice. Also, empty the recycle bin by right clicking on it and selecting "Empty Recycle Bin". These steps should be done on a regular basis.
10. After you use Windows XP for some time, the prefetch folder can get full of rarely used or obsolete links which can slow down your computer boot time noticeably. We recommend you delete all files in this folder about once a month.
To find the prefetch folder, enter this in the explorer address bar:
%windir%\prefetch
This should take you to either C:\WINDOWS\PREFETCH or C:\WINNT\PREFETCH. Delete all the files there. http://www.hexff.com/xp_tuneup.php
