Hi everyone.

This is my first post. I am running Windows XP Professional SP3 with 512 ram. The PC is my only PC at home and is about 7 years old. My kids are the primary users of the computer.

This issue started as a virus issue but I think is now an operating system problem. If this is in the wrong forum Please move to the correct forum.

I had an event happen last week. My system came to a complete slow down. Internet transfer rate was around 3kb per minute. I guessed I had picked up a virus. I tried to run Malwarbytes and Spybot. Neither program would load. I tried to reboot into safe mode and was not able to enter ctrl-alt-delete. Rebooted into normal mode and modified boot.ini so it would force start in safe mode. At this point I was able to enter safe mode. I ran Malwarbytes, Spybot, and Trend Micro Officescan 5.58. 4 viruses were found and cleared by the programs (I did not record the virus names). I rebooted into normal mode, reset boot.ini to start in normal mode and rebooted.

Things looked good until I noticed many services were not running. I can not get updates from Microsoft. I receive an error message when I try to uninstall programs. I looked at the event logs and noted multiple application errors. The primary error is:

The COM+ Event System detected a bad return code during its internal processing. HRESULT was 80070005 from line 44 of d:\comxp_sp3\com\com1x\src\events\tier1\eventsystemobj.cpp. Please contact Microsoft Product Support Services to report this error.

Microsoft does not have any additional information on the error.

I know this computer is on its last legs but it has worked well up until now. 2 more years until the kids will need laptops for school.

PS: The only time I have to work on fixes is late in the evening and on weekends.

I strongly suspect that you are infected
Remove mbam and start over


Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free version and save it to your desktop.

NOTE: Before saving MBAM please rename it to zztoy.exe....now save it to your desktop.


Also download rkill and run it before running mbam
It will kill the process that is blocking mbam

Please download Rkill by Grinler and save it to your desktop.Link 2
Link 3
Link 4
  • Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.
  • If using Vista, right-click on it and Run As Administrator.
  • A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
  • If not, delete the file, then download and use the one provided in Link 2.
  • If it does not work, repeat the process and attempt to use one of the remaining links until the tool runs.
  • If the tool does not run from any of the links provided, please let me know.
Do not reboot the computer or you will have to run it again

Thanks for helping me.

I have unistalled MBAM. I have downloaded and saved MBAM as ZZTOY.EXE. I downloaded Rkill. I will run these programs tonight. I will let you know what MBAM find in the morning.

Once again thanks for helping me.

Last night I ran MBAM after I ran Rkill. MBAM completed successfully and found 0 suspicious files.

FYI: In my original attempt to fix this thing on my own I was ultamately able to rum MBAM, Spybot and even my virus program Trend Micro Office Scan. Running MBAM last night was a reassurance for you and me that common viruses were removed.

So what's next?

:thumbsup:
Please download Dr.Web CureIt, the free version & save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.

Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Scan with Dr.Web CureIt as follows:
  • Double-click on launch.exe to open the program and click Start. (There is no need to update if you just downloaded the most current version
  • Read the Virus check by DrWeb scanner prompt and click Ok where asked to Start scan now? Allow the setup.exe to load if asked by any of your security programs.
  • The Express scan will automatically begin.
    (This is a short scan of files currently running in memory, boot sectors, and targeted folders).
  • If prompted to dowload the Full version Free Trial, ignore and click the X to close the window.
  • If an infected object is found, you will be prompted to move anything that cannot be cured. Click Yes to All.
  • When complete, click Select All, then choose Cure > Move incurable.
    (This will move any detected files to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if they can't be cured)
  • Now put a check next to Complete scan to scan all local disks and removable media.
  • In the top menu, click Settings > Change settings, and UNcheck "Heuristic analysis" under the "Scanning" tab, then click Ok.
  • Back at the main window, click the green arrow "Start Scanning" button on the right under the Dr.Web logo.
  • When the scan is complete, a message will be displayed at the bottom indicating if any viruses were found.
  • Click "Yes to all" if asked to cure or move the file(s) and select "Move incurable".
  • In the top menu, click file and choose save report list.
  • Save the DrWeb.csv report to your desktop.
  • Exit Dr.Web Cureit when done.
  • Important! Reboot your computer because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
  • After reboot, post the contents of the log from Dr.Web in your next reply. (You can use Notepad to open the DrWeb.cvs report)

I ran into problems last night. I downloaded all three programs without a problem.

I ran ATF_Cleaner and it found 0 items. (I run CCleaner which appears to do the same chores).

I tried to install SUPERAntiSypware.exe and received an error. I receive a system message that Installer is not installed or the computer is in safe mode. This is the first time I have seen the "installer" message. My original post mentioned I was seeing a similar message regarding "uninstaller". I skipped this step waiting on additional instruction from you.

I ran DR.WEB CUREIT in safe mode. The first pass in "Express mode" found no items. I then performed the second scan in "complete scan" mode. Initially the program found SVSHOST had been modified and asked if I wanted to replace the service with default program. I answered "OK". The program then continued with the scan. The program was still running at 8:30 this morning (roughly 10 hours into the scan). The program appears to have found 52 exceptions mostly in 2 locations: A- System restore files. B- Trend Microsystems scan files. As the program was not completed when I left for work I can not report the log. I will do that tonight.

I can not install SAS. I receive the following system error message. "The Windows Installer Service Could not be accessed. This can occur if you are running Windows in safe mode, or if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance." I am not trying to install SAS in the safe mode. I tried to cut and paste a screen shot for you to see my window but I couldn't figure out how to do it.

When I ran the DR.Web CureIt program (in safe mode) the following log file was generated:

I tried to boot my PC in safe mode this morning. Now I can't enter safe mode. I have to enter safe mode in "safe mode with networking". I have to enter <ctrl><alt><delete> to enter my password and I the keys are not registering. Seems like things are getting worse!

You need to submit a DDS log


Please read the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A DDS / HJT Log". If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next. In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running DDS which will create a Pseudo HJT Report as part of its log.


When you have done that, post your log in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here, for assistance by the Malware Removal Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the Malware Response Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

The MR team is very busy and it will take awhile to get to your post
Please be patient and good luck

Thanks for the help. Best of luck.

I added a topic called "multiple servies will not run". Hopefully they will be able to help.

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/300625/multiple-services-will-not-run/ you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.
