Hi,

Currently I have a very clean install XP-SP3 (that's what I would like to believe). Prior to reinstalling I had virus problems so had to delete all partitions, reinstall XP on C: however I could not delete D: partition because of 30 gigs of data.

Before reinstall there was always a svchost (see scrnshots attached) attached to System Volume Information folder (hidden) on all partitions even though I never keep Sys restore turned on. Tried most of AV scanner, ComboFix etc but none was able to remove the actual virus,malware (or I dont know what, so f***ing fedup) which I very strongly believe is related to svchost and system volume information folder.

Anyways onto new install of XP-SP3 as I told u I could not delete D: partition so surely the system volume information folder was to be found there. Now even before accessing D: drive after the new install, one of the first thing I did was to turn off SYS Restore turned off SYS Restore, TURN AUTOMATIC UPDATES OFF, REMOTE SHARING ETC installed UNLOCKER browsed to d: found SYS vol info folder tried to delete it, unlocker popped up showing the SVCHOSt process attached to it, killed off the process in unlocker and it was able to successfully delete the folder and Recycler folder. Rebooted and as expected SYStem vol info folder was again to be found on D: (Pls note SYS Volume Information folder can now be found on all drives, system restore turned off.)

I downloaded & transferred SDFIX to laptop via pendrive, ran as instructed ON BC forum and sdFix found virus in system32 folder(check the LOG attached). As soon as SDFIX rebooted system and generated the log, WINDOWS Security Alerts reminds me "Your Automatic Updates are turned off", pls remember just after the clean install I had turned off Automatic updates and this is exactly the same behaviour I used to experience prior to new install, whenever any AV used to detect any sort of virus related to SVCHOST and SYSTEM VOLUME INFORMATION so this confirm the virus,malware is still present on my system after successfully managing to waste three months of my life.


As from my past experiences at supposedly helpful guys at Kaspersky forums (http://virusinfo.info/showthread.php?t=70506) and many other forum, I am very positive that this post will not get many comments/resolutions to my problem and if at all, would be of reinstalling xp r wiping of my HDD completely. That is not an option since I have some really valuable data on my D: and even if I was to transfer it to another HDD, clean install xp on wiped off HDD and retransfer the problem would not go away since the virus, malware would also be propogated along with data.

I am sure expert folks here would be able to find me a way out if they really want to, which would be nothing short of a blessing.

regards,
rseni

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.

Please include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Please refrain from running tools or applying updates other than those we suggest while we are cleaning up your computer. The reason for this is so we know what is going on with the machine at any time. Some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process.

Even if you have already provided information about your PC, we need a new log to see what has changed since you originally posted your problem.
We need to create an OTL Report
  1. Please download OTL from one of the following mirrors:
  2. Save it to your desktop.
  3. Double click on the icon on your desktop.
  4. Click the "Scan All Users" checkbox.
  5. In the custom scan box paste the following:
    CODE
    netsvcs
    msconfig
    safebootminimal
    safebootnetwork
    activex
    drivers32
    %systemroot%\system32\*.dll /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\Tasks\*.job /lockedfiles
    /md5start
    eventlog.dll
    scecli.dll
    netlogon.dll
    cngaudit.dll

    %systemroot%\*. /mp /s
  6. Push the button.
  7. Two reports will open, copy and paste them in a reply here:
    • OTL.txt <-- Will be opened
    • Extra.txt<--Will be minimized

In the upper right hand corner of the topic you will see a button called Options. If you click on this in the drop-down menu you can choose Track this topic. I suggest you do this and select Immediate E-Mail notification and click on Proceed. This way you will be advised when we respond to your topic and facilitate the cleaning of your machine.

After 5 days if a topic is not replied to we assume it has been abandoned and it is closed.
