I ran DDS and RootRepeal (below and attached are the logs) after my previous post:

(After running RootRepeal, a message popped up: "Error -on-disk corruption detected - run chkdsk!")


The past three weeks, my computer (Windows XP) has been giving me the same error "Generic Host Process for Win32..." with the 60 second countdown then restarts. I researched many websites, read many threads on bleepingcomputer, tried several solutions, and nothing has cured the problem. I even scanned my computer regularly with the latest Malwarebytes, Ad-Aware, and AVG. My computer also has symtoms of a redirect virus, sometimes a random unknown junkmail type website would pop up. I downloaded the critical Microsoft Update released two weeks ago for the Google Redirect virus but it doesn't seem to help.

I've tried solutions from other websites and they haven't work, almost seems outdated because it is from a few years ago such as turning off Automatic Updates; clicking Start, Run, and modifying items in the registry (i.e. "Transport Bind Name" making it a blank value / Port 445, "Enable DCOM" changing it to N from Y / Port 135, "IsDomainMaster" making it False, going to Command Prompt and typing in "...winsock...").

The only temporary solution I found that disables the timer is running Command Prompt from Start / Run then entering "shutdown -a". However, this doesn't cure the problem.

My main concern are 1) Does my computer have something harmful / can retrieve sensitive information and obviously 2) I need to get rid of it and I've read so many posts where people have the same exact issue and there seems to be no clear universal solution. Is there a program that can clean it out?

Please, I really really need help from a moderator to walk me thru this problem. Thank you!

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help. No one is ignored here.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.

If you have not done so, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Upon completing the steps below another staff member will review and take the steps necessary with you to get your machine back in working order clean and free of malware.

If you have already posted a DDS log, please do so again, as your situation may have changed.
Use the 'Add Reply' and add the new log to this thread.


Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan:
  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explaination about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
  • Notepad will open with the results.
  • Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
  • Close the program window, and delete the program from your desktop.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run. After downloading the tool, disconnect from the internet and disable all antivirus protection. Run the scan, enable your A/V and reconnect to the internet.

Information on A/V control HERE



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.


  • 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
