Dear helper,

I have recently been attempting to recover from a serious malware infection, and I seem to have controlled it, with MBAM and Adaware, but there is still a uacinit.dll Trojan that I have not been able to remove, I have followed other advice on this site, and used SuperANTISpyware and ATF cleaner in SafeMode to no avail, it requires a restart to eliminate, and it is there after every restart. I have attempted to use ComboFix, but it never runs when I try to use it, instead I get a message saying it is infected with the Vundo (I think) virus and cannot open. Also, I have had to rename most of my Anti-Spyware applications to get them to run, since otherwise they do not.

I thank anyone who can help me in advance.

Here is my DDS log (and my Malwarebytes log follows it):

Please make sure you disable ALL of your Antivirus/Antispyware/Firewall before running ComboFix.. Please visit HERE if you don't know how.. Please re-enable them back after performing all steps given..

Please download ComboFix by sUBs from HERE or HERE or HERE and save it to your Desktop.

During the download, rename Combofix to Combo-Fix as follows:

It is important you rename Combofix during the download, but not after.

**NOTE: If you are using Firefox, make sure that your download settings are as follows:
  • Tools->Options->Main tab
  • Set to "Always ask me where to Save the files".

After that, double-click and run Combo-Fix. Let it finish its job and post the log here

If ComboFix asked you to install Recovery Console, please do so.. It will be your best interest..

Note: DON'T do anything with your computer while ComboFix is running.. Let ComboFix finishes its job..

Keep calm, make it simple, use your brain, don't freak out, and you'll be just fine..

I followed your instructions on how to download ComboFix as Combo-Fix, but when I attempted to start it I receive this message:


!! ALERT !! It is NOT SAFE to continue !

The contents of the ComboFix package has been compromised.
Please download a fresh copy from:


Note: You may be infected with a file patching virus 'Virut'

I attempted to download it again from that site, using the same instructions, but again it failed to run. My firewall tells me that it is off, and I don't have any anti-virus software running that I can see in my processes or on my bar...

I am also now receiving an error message whenever I run a MBAM scan and quarantine the files this has a countdown clock to restart and reads under the Error Message portion:

Windows must now restart because the DCOM Server Process Launcher service terminated unsuccessfully.

Erm.. I got lots of virut victims lately and its not fun :thumbup2:

A quote from an expert (sUBs)

Virut is not disinfectable. Your only option is to perform a full reformat. Do NOT attempt a repair install. It shall be a waste of time. If you do so, the infected executables remain on the machine & you shall likely trigger another bout of Virut.

If you do not know how to perform a fresh install, use this website > http://www.windowsreinstall.com/

Note: If you have to backup files, do so only for MS Office documents & any non executable file. Burn them to CD/DVD. Do NOT copy files from the infected machine to your pendrive OR another machine. You risk infecting the other machine.

full reformat means, format on ALL partitions..


I would advised you to start backup all of your valuable data/documents/pictures/movies/songs/etc.. Do NOT backup any applications/installer and Do NOT backup any .exe/.scr/.htm/.html/.xml/.zip/.rar/.pif/.asp/.php/.iso files...

Make sure you back-up everything ONLY via CD or DVD (non-rewritable).. If you need to backup into external hard drive or thumbdrive, make sure it is EMPTY.. Meaning NO FILE inside it.. Format the external drive first before attach it to the infected computer.. A single .exe file inside the external drive may infected other computers as well


I will let this topic open until you succesfully reformat the computer..

Keep calm, make it simple, use your brain, don't freak out, and you'll be just fine..

Well, I tried reformatting at first when these problems started occuring, but I could not get my bootdisk to load, so its between getting a new version of windows, or getting a new computer.

Thank you for your help.
