I use Avira AV, and it's been picking this up lately(last day or so), and nothing I've done has been successful in removing it.

I am running Windows XP Media Center Edition(or something like that).

I've run Spybot S&D, MBAM, SUPERAntiSpyware, Avira's scan, and Ad-Aware to no avail.

Here are the last three msgs that came up on Avira;

"Virus or unwanted program 'WORM/Conficker.AY [worm]'
detected in file 'C:\Documents and Settings\NetworkService\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\G1YTQ3MX\waunxh[1].jpg."

"Virus or unwanted program 'HIDDENEXT/Crypted [heuristic]'
detected in file 'C:\Documents and Settings\NetworkService\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\G1YTQ3MX\waunxh[1].jpg."

"Virus or unwanted program 'WORM/Conficker.Z.59 [worm]'
detected in file 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\x."

It's really annoying, I've run out of resources, short of running things that would likely do nothing(SmitfraudFix, etc.)

Any help would be appreciated, I recently had to format after a particularily bad bit of malware ate windows, and I really don't want to have to do so again.

Hello, The Conficker/Downadup Worm targets unpatched systems so be sure they read Conflicker Worm - More Potent MS08-067 attacks to unpatched systems.

There are a number of free removal tools available to download and use.Symantec W32.Downadup Removal Tool
McAfee AVERT Stinger for W32/Conficker - alternate download
F-Secure Downadup Removal Tool
Sophos Conficker Clean-up Tool - alternate download
F-Secure Downadup Removal Tool Instructions
BitDefender Anti-Downadup tool - alternate download
You can also download and perform a Full scan with Microsoft's Malicious Software Removal Tool.

That seems to have worked.

Thank You!

If it hasn't actually worked, I'll be updating the thread in the next day or so.

Good let's follow up a bit.
Next run ATF:
Note: On Vista, "Windows Temp" is disabled. To empty "Windows Temp" ATF-Cleaner must be "Run as an Administrator".

Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune & save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
  • Under Main "Select Files to Delete" choose: Select All.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • If you use Firefox browser click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
    If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • If you use Opera browser click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
    If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
  • Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.

Rerun MBAM (MalwareBytes) like this:

Open MBAM in normal mode and click Update tab, select Check for Updates,when done
click Scanner tab,select Quick scan and scan (normal mode).
After scan click Remove Selected, Post new scan log and Reboot into normal mode.

Ok, I ran the Symantec tool, the BitDefender tool, and the f-secure tool.

I then ran ATF-Cleaner as per your instructions, and then ran MBAM, and for good measure, ran Avira Scan.


The conficker removal tools found things then destroyed them. ATF cleaner did its thing, then MBAM and Avira came up clean.

I go back into normal mode, and within 2 minutes, I get this

I also received a warning for TR/Crypt.TPM.Gen and TR/Dropper.Gen.

What now?

We need to run a deep long scan.

Before we start fixing anything you should print out these instructions or copy them to a NotePad file so they will be accessible. Some steps will require you to disconnect from the Internet or use Safe Mode and you will not have access to this page.

Please download Dr.Web CureIt and save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.
alternate download link
Note: The file will be randomly named (i.e. 5mkuvc4z.exe).

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 the randomly named file to open the program and click Start. (There is no need to update if you just downloaded the most current version
  • Read the anti-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. (This will move any detected files to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if they can't be cured)
  • After the Express Scan is finished, 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 Apply, Ok.
  • Back at the main window, click the green arrow "Start Scanning" button on the right under the Dr.Web logo.
  • Please be patient as this scan could take a long time to complete.
  • When the scan has finished, a message will be displayed at the bottom indicating if any viruses were found.
  • Click Select All, then choose Cure > 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)

Much better,,, We should do a quick scan and hopefully we can mop up here.

Good,good
Now you should Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been backed up, renamed and saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "Ok". Disk Cleanup will scan your files for several minutes, then open.
  • Click the "More Options" tab, then click the "Clean up" button under System Restore.
  • Click Ok. You will be prompted with "Are you sure you want to delete all but the most recent restore point?"
  • Click Yes, then click Ok.
  • Click Yes again when prompted with "Are you sure you want to perform these actions?"
  • Disk Cleanup will remove the files and close automatically.
Vista and Windows 7 users can refer to these links: Create a New Restore Point in Vista or Windows 7 and Disk Cleanup in Vista.
