Running XP. Just to use the computer I have to bring up the Task Manager and end 3 processes:
EULALauncher.exe
CLI.exe
ATPStartupAssistant.exe

Problems starts a week ago with "Windows cannot find 'logon.exe'...." and has continued to get worse.
I removed logon.exe using help the HTFC forums where other users had the same issue. I realize that touching my
registry can be very dangerous and only erased those 9 characters as told by several administrators.

My AVG scan found "VUNDO.JD" shortly thereafter.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello and thank you so much for responding back! My computer is still running very slow and I've tried many programs to heal the infection. I'm mostly being bombarded with advertisements! Currently, my AVG and AVast Anti-virus is not picking up an infection, although previously it had picked up the Vundo.JD virus.

So far I've run countless scans, Malwarebytes, Sypbot, Ad-Aware, Yahoo anti spam, etc...

I think they have helped although the problem is not fixed. Thanks again.

Hello, westcoastcroatian and again
Welcome to the Bleeping Computer Forums. My name is Thomas (Tom is fine), and I will be helping you fixing your problems.

If you do not make a reply in 5 days, we will have to close your topic.

You may want to keep the link to this topic in your favourites. Alternatively, you can click the Posted Image button at the top bar of this topic and Track this Topic. The topics you are tracking can be found here.

Please take note of some guidelines for this fix:
  • Refrain from making any changes to your computer including installing/uninstall programs, deleting files, modifying the registry, and running scanners or tools. Doing so could cause changes to the directions I have to give you and prolong the time required. Further more, you should not be taking any advice relating to this computer from any other source throughout the course of this fix.
  • If you do not understand any step(s) provided, please do not hesitate to ask before continuing. I would much rather clarify instructions or explain them differently than have something important broken.
  • Even if things appear to be better, it might not mean we are finished. Please continue to follow my instructions and reply back until I give you the "all clean". We do not want to clean you part-way, only to have the system re-infect itself.
  • Please reply using the Posted Image button in the lower right hand corner of your screen. Do not start a new topic. The logs that you post should be pasted directly into the reply. Only attach them if requested or if they do not fit into the post.
  • Old topics are closed after 3 days with no reply, and working topics are closed after 5 days. If for any reason you cannot complete instructions within that time, that's fine, just post back here so that we know you're still here.
  • Please set your system to show all files.
    Click Start, open My Computer, select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
    Select the View Tab. Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders.
    Uncheck: Hide file extensions for known file types
    Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
    Click Yes to confirm.



Please download GMER from one of the following locations and save it to your desktop:
  • Main Mirror
    This version will download a randomly named file (Recommended)
  • Zipped Mirror
    This version will download a zip file you will need to extract first. If you use this mirror, please extract the zip file to your desktop.
  • Disconnect from the Internet and close all running programs.
  • Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security programs will not conflict with gmer's driver.
  • Double-click on the randomly named GMER file (i.e. n7gmo46c.exe) and allow the gmer.sys driver to load if asked.
  • Note: If you downloaded the zipped version, extract the file to its own folder such as C:\gmer and then double-click on gmer.exe.

    Posted Image
  • GMER will open to the Rootkit/Malware tab and perform an automatic quick scan when first run. (do not use the computer while the scan is in progress)
  • If you receive a WARNING!!! about rootkit activity and are asked to fully scan your system...click NO.
  • Now click the Scan button. If you see a rootkit warning window, click OK.
  • When the scan is finished, click the Save... button to save the scan results to your Desktop. Save the file as gmer.log.
  • Click the Copy button and paste the results into your next reply.
  • Exit GMER and re-enable all active protection when done.
-- If you encounter any problems, try running GMER in Safe Mode.
regards,
schrauber

Hello Tom, thanks very much for you help!

So I've tried to run the scan 3 times today... with little success. Safe Mode will not work as when I begin the process, I get a
Blue Screen message saying I have a virus.

The others times I've ran the program the computer has frozen and/or the video card shutdown and I couldn't turn the monitor back on
unless I restarted the computer (so i'm not sure if the scan ever finished??)

I just wanted to let you know that I'm trying to get you the information. I'll continue to do so but this is my update.

Thanks!
Mark

Hi,

Please try this one:


RootRepeal - Rootkit Detector


Download RootRepeal.zip and unzip it to your Desktop.

  • Double click RootRepeal.exe to start the program
  • Click on the Report tab at the bottom of the program window
  • Clickthe Scan button
  • In the Select Scan dialog, check:
    • Drivers
    • Files
    • Processes
    • SSDT
    • Stealth Objects
    • Hidden Services
  • Click the OK button
  • In the next dialog, select all drives showing
  • Click OK to start the scan

    The scan can take some time. DO NOT run any other programs while the scan is running

  • When the scan is complete, the Save Report button will become available
  • Click this and save the report to your Desktop as RootRepeal.txt
  • Go to File, then Exit to close the program

regards,
schrauber

Here are the scans. I had to run them seperately as no Scan Menu even came up. The Stealth and Hidden tabs were empty.

I will try to run the GMER log again just in case that gives you a better view. Thanks.

This log was copied before my computer froze, about 10 mins into the scan.
Then the computer usage hits 100% and I cant do anything! Thanks!

Thanks anyway for your assistance Tom. With the computer locking up on me constantly, I've decided to reinstall Windows from scratch.

Happy Holidays! Best, Mark
