I was having problems with AVG over the weekend, where the resident shield programs were keeping the CPU at 100% activity even though no apps were open nor connections made to the internet (normal idle level is 0-4%). I eventually "solved" this by removing AVG and installing AVAST!, which immediately found two infections: Fasec [Trj] and Alureon-BX [Rtk]. Repeated removals of over 4000 files, which come back almost instantly, led me eventually to this forum.

As I was walking through the steps to prepare a report, I reached the RootRepeal step. When I activate RR, it shows a little grey box that reads "Initiating files, please wait....". After a couple of minutes of just this box (never actually see the RR console), the application goes unresponsive (per Task Manager), and the CPU pegs to 100%. Can only be stopped by ending task. If left alone, it eventually freezes the whole computer, requiring a hard reset. I've tried renaming RR per some of the threads here, but that had the same result.

Any suggestions? Is there an alternate root scanner I could use to make a report? As an FYI, the DDS tool ran fine, and I have a DDS.txt and Attach.txt.

Windows is fully updated XP. Only other programs running with RR are Avast! free and Zone Alarm free.

Thank you

Use these two logs instead
If they do not work, just post the DDS log with a note that the others wouldn't run


Please download Win32kDiag.exe by AD and save it to your desktop.
alternate download 1
alternate download 2
  • This tool will create a diagnostic report
  • Double-click on Win32kDiag.exe to run and let it finish.
  • When it states Finished! Press any key to exit..., press any key on your keyboard to close the program.
  • A file called Win32kDiag.txt should be created on your Desktop.
  • Open that file in Notepad and copy/paste the entire contents (from Starting up... to Finished! Press any key to exit...) in your next reply.

Ok, thanks, it'll have to wait til after work, but I will run these tonight.

Also, as an update, I ran into another wierdism last night. Avast suddenly identified the DDR.scr file has having a third infection, another trojan MELF-something (doing this from memory, don't have my notes at work). I moved it to the Avast chest, and went to re-download from here. As soon as I clicked the download link, Avast said the link was infected with the same MELF trojan. At this point, I ran another boot scan, and it came back with 6 files having the MELF trojan, but no signs of the other two viruses. This included the respawned 4000+ files suddenly being virus free? I'm more baffled than ever, lol!

Thanks again for the response.

That is a false positive
