hi all ,

this XP comp was (?) infected with the smitfraud and startpage viri . i have run the various methods of removing them . there is no desktop in the true sense of the word . the startup sequence seems normal just thru the "logon" screen and then it displays a bluescreen with an arrow ... no icons or start tab etc . i can access "task manager" in the normal mode .
i can boot into the safe mode ... sometimes it takes a few tries . i can navigate and perform various functions (to some extent) using "task manager" . i do not know how to "show hidden files/folders" as all the methods thus far make use of the start menu . i do not have access to IE and cannot find a way to start it thru task manager . the program files and folders "feel" normal .
i created two hjt logs ... the startup and "short" forms . the startup log shows many files/folders empty or missing (user profiles etc etc) ... i believe some of these are associated with the desktop , but i am no windows guru .
is it possible to reload/repair those files associated with the desktop and so forth ? i have gone this far , it seems a shame to reformat the hd and do a total install .
i can post the startup log if need be .
thanks in advance ...

Larry

Hello crazylarry and welcome to the BC malware forums. As far as what I can see in the log I do not see any malware at this time. It does appear that there are 2 anti-virus applications. This is not recommended and 1 of them should be removed.

Let's first see if we can't fix the desktop. Try this. You can start programs by using the TaskManger and clicking on the New Task button. Now click the Browse button and navigate to c:\windows. Locate Notepad.exe and double-click on it to start it.

Copy/paste the text in the quotebox below into the new document. Save it to the folder c:\ as regfix.reg :

REGEDIT4

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\iexplorer.exe]
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\explorer.exe]


Now use the same process to start c:\windows\regedit.exe. Click the Registry menu item and choose Import Registry File. Navigate to b]c:\[/b] and choose regfix.reg. You will receive a prompt similar to: "Do you wish to merge the information into the registry?". Answer Yes and wait for a message to appear similar to Merged Successfully.

Restart your computer.

Let me know if your desktop is still missing.

Cheers.
