Ive had quite a few problems happen over the past few days, so I decided to download a new virus scanner etc to check because my current one (AVG free) wasnt picking up on anything in the scans.
I found quite a few trojans using the new virus scanner (which were believable being found in keygens etc lol:P)

So I promptly deleted them, but before I did I made a quick note of which files these virus' were found in.
Two files, which I think this might be related to, were removed by the virus scanner.
These two files were:
C:/Windows/system32/winFLsrv.exe
C:/Windows/sysWow64/winFLsrv.exe

Now either it was the result of removing these files, or the effects of the trojans themselves, but since then whenever I turn on my computer it asks for a password for my user account. This is a problem simply because I dont have a password for this account (and its the only account on the computer) and I dont have the Guest or Administrator accounts active. I am positive that it is not my own personal fault because I havent ever set a password on this account.

In aim of trying to find out what this password might have been created as, I downloaded and used Ophcrack via a boot disk to determine the password. However, I had some difficulties with this as well with the password coming up as 'not found' - (the other accounts, e.g. the admin/guest accounts, their password's came up as 'empty').

I had a few problems previous to detecting these virus' and I can go into further details on those, but Im not sure if they are even a problem now....(havent been able to test because ive been unable to logon though...)

I have critical year 12 assignments due in a few weeks so help ASAP would be extremely appreciated.

If worst comes to worst, I'll survive if I have to format the computer but I would prefer not to...

Thanks.

Welcome to the BleepingComputer Forums.

Since it has been a few days since you scanned your computer with HijackThis, we will need a new HijackThis log. If you have not already downloaded Random's System Information Tool (RSIT), please download Random's System Information Tool (RSIT) by random/random which includes a HijackThis log and save it to your desktop. If you have RSIT already on your computer, please run it again.
  1. Double click on RSIT.exe to run RSIT.
  2. Click Continue at the disclaimer screen.
  3. Please post the contents of log.txt.
Thank you for your patience.

Please see Preparation Guide for use before posting about your potential Malware problem.

If you have already posted this log at another forum or if you decide to seek help at another forum, please let us know. There is a shortage of helpers and taking the time of two volunteer helpers means that someone else may not be helped.

Please post your HijackThis log as a reply to this thread and not as an attachment. I am always leery of opening attachments so I always request that HijackThis logs are to be posted as a reply to the thread. I do not think that you are attaching anything scary but others may do so.

While we are working on your HijackThis log, please:
  1. Reply to this thread; do not start another!
  2. Do not make any changes on your computer during the cleaning process or download/add programs on your computer unless instructed to do so.
  3. Do not run any other tool until instructed to do so!
  4. Let me know if any of the links do not work or if any of the tools do not work.
  5. Tell me about problems or symptoms that occur during the fix.
  6. Do not run any other programs or open any other windows while doing a fix.
  7. Ask any questions that you have regarding the fix(es), the infection(s), the performance of your computer, etc.
Thanks.
