Hi all
having lots of problems past few days. My computer must have caught something nasty since I am getting frequent popups from avira anti vir telling me that there is a TR/crypt.xpack.gen(trojan) or another dirivitive of the same in various files. I used paretologic antivirus to get rid of the malware. but they are still showing up (less frequently though) everything else I tried either crashed or didnt find anything....

Before I ran that scan and found many infected files my system kept crashing.

Also I am getting constant pop ups from zonealarm telling me that the svchost is trying to send out spam. already got a warning from my isp about this. below please find my hijackthis log. I am running xp, with zonealarm extreme firewall and several anti virus and spyware programs.

please help!

Hello bmackler, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

My apologies for the delay. We're all volunteers, and we've been swamped.

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here or Here

Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
  • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.(See Extra Note)
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and Paste the entire report in your next reply along with a fresh HijackThis log.
Extra Note:
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove,you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts,click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process, if asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.

We'll begin with ComboFix.exe. Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running the tool:
  • When the tool is finished, it will produce a report for you.
  • Please post the C:\ComboFix.txt along with a new HijackThis log so we may continue cleaning the system.
