Posted 13 June 2009 - 02:55 AM

Let me begin by offering my apologies for the length of this post, but I don't want to inadvertently omit any essential information.

My computer contracted a nasty trojan/virus last night. I believe, but am not certain, that the problem is linked to a file I opened named "keygen.photomatix.pro.3.full.exe"

My system is a dual-boot XP sp3 and Windows 7 Beta, and it is the XP side that is infected. I have used the Windows 7 side to retrieve any information I am concerned about, so data-loss is not a issue. I'd like to fix this problem without wiping the hd though, as it's alot of work to get everything back up and running.
I have been unable to boot XP in safemode. I'm not certain why, but I think it has to do with the dual-boot.

Ok, now for the symptoms:

First, the computer did a random reboot while I was working. When it restarted into XP, the theme was changed to 98-style, and the taskbar was missing. The task bar is easy enough to retrieve, but minimized windows do not appear in the taskbar.

The internet connections are gone. When I open network connections, it is empty. When I open the Device Manager, the ethernet ports are shown, but I cannot click or right click-->properties on anything in the Device Manager.

I can open the Task Manager. Suspicious entries I was getting were "ol6hq6fx.exe"(usually two or more instances of that), "ms1244787933.exe" and "qgcr8kj0ev1e.exe"

Upon ending the "ol6hq6fx.exe" application in the Task Manager, it would instantly reappear. By using the "end process tree" function several times, I'm able to remove them entirely, though they return after a reboot.

Also, upon reboot, sometimes I get an error message telling me either that "dcei.exe" or "tbbe.exe" has encountered an error and is forced to quit. This does not happen everytime I reboot, but is seemingly random.

When I attempted to run AVG, the system scan is blocked. Similarly, the Windows Firewall cannot be accessed. When I attempt to enter the Windows Firewall options, I get a message saying "Windows Firewall settings cannot be displayed because the associated service is not running. Do you want to start the Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) Service?" Upon clicking yes, I am told that "Windows cannot start the Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service."

Additionally, the paste feature seems to have been disabled in nearly all instances, including Windows Explorer. Also, I cannot move/drag icons/folders/files either on the desktop or in Windows Explorer.

Attempting to run Regedit greets me with a message informing me that "Registry editing has been disabled by your administrator"

At this point, I ran HijackThis, and removed the following 4 entries from the registry:
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [hsf7husjnfg98gi498aejhiugjkdg4] C:\DOCUME~1\Chris\LOCALS~1\Temp\ol6hq6fx.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [] C:\DOCUME~1\Chris\LOCALS~1\Temp\ol6hq6fx.exe
O4 - HKUS\S-1-5-21-220523388-261478967-725345543-1003\..\Run: [hsf7husjnfg98gi498aejhiugjkdg4] C:\DOCUME~1\Chris\LOCALS~1\Temp\ol6hq6fx.exe (User '?')
O4 - HKUS\S-1-5-21-220523388-261478967-725345543-1003\..\Run: [] C:\DOCUME~1\Chris\LOCALS~1\Temp\ol6hq6fx.exe (User '?')

(note that the file "ol6hq6fx.exe" was hidden, and was not accessible to me either through Windows Explorer or the command prompt.)

I then downloaded(via another computer) and ran Avira Antivira and performed a full System Scan. It found the following 7 entries:


It removed these entries, after which I rebooted. The "ol6hq6fx.exe" process no longer seems to be running upon bootup, but all of the symptoms remain the same.

I then came to this site, downloaded dds, and ran it.

Also note that the infected computer is on a wireless network, but I unplugged the antenna fairly early on, in case the computer was somehow still online.
