I went through my computer deleting a bunch of files (over 20 gb worth in c://) I come back about 45minute's later and theres about 15 popups, and 3 Security tabs running, Obviously they were fake so I knew it was a Virus, I deleted the Processes then ran MalwareBytes 3x and SpyBot 2x, I was recommended to also try avast! but at the time I was throwing up every 45minutes. I logged back on the other day and my taskbar is gone (windows shell file) they disabled my rpc server (kinda I can access the internet by going through windows explorer).. Can't do a avast! scan because the rpc server, Can't do a bootscan on it either it basically will shut all programs but MSN that are trying to logon...

It will still cause popups but very rarely,
It blocks my RPC
Won't let me run malwarebytes or avast only spybot (I've ended spybots processes and tried).
It also disabled System Restore
Cannot drag anything or copy files
also Lags my computer horribly right after the windows xp black window at startup to until it starts up, There are 2 explorer.exe's running and something called IEXPLORER.exe, I've ended all 3 and restarted explorer.exe with newtask but didn't fix anything, Ran a registry cleanup also.
I cannot go into manage and systems to change RPC but it is set to automatically start..

Can't even post a HIJack log of this because of it.

sorry, any advice would help, Thanks

This could take some time to find the right way in.

Let's try to boot your computer using the Ultimate Boot CD for Windows (UBCD4win).

Please print this guide for future reference!

You will need a blank CD, a clean computer and a flash drive.

Please follow the steps below and let me know if you were successful. If you were unable to create the UBCD4win, please tell me what error messages you got and/or what steps you got hung up on.

1. Download and Run Ultimate Boot CD for Windows
  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double-Click on the UBCD4Win.EXE that you just downloaded to your desktop.
  • Follow all of the instructions/prompts that come up.
    • Do not install to a folder with spaces in it's name.
    • Your Anti-Virus may report viruses or trojans when you extract UBCD4Win, these are "False-Positives." Read HERE for information regarding the files that normally trigger AV software.
2. Insert your XP CD with SP1/SP2/SP3 into a CD Rom drive
  • Double-Click on UBCD4WinBuilder.exe located in your C:\ubcd4win folder.
  • Click "I agree" to the Builders License.
  • Click NO to Search for Windows Installation Files
  • Make the following selections from the Main Screen that pops up:
    • Builder
      • Source:(path to Windows installation files)
        • Enter the path to the drive where your XP CD is located.
        • You can click on the "..." button on the right to navigate to the path as well.
      • Custom: (include files and folders from this directory)
        • No information is necessary, leave blank.
      • Output: (C:\ubcd4win\BartPE)
        • Keep the default BartPE
    • Media output
      • Choose Create ISO image
      • Do not choose Burn to CD/DVD

        Please note: If your XP install disc is SP1 then please .....
        1. Disable- DComLaunch Service
        2. Enable- LargeIDE Fix

          This can be done by pressing the "Plugin" button and checking or unchecking the appropriate selections

      Also note: If you have a Dell XP install disc you will need to follow the instructions here

    3. Click on the "Build" button
    • You will see the Windows EULA message. Click on I Agree
    • You will now see the Build Screen. Let it run it's course
    • When the Build is finished you can click close, then exit

    4. Burn your ISO file to CD
    • Please see HERE on how to burn an ISO to CD.



    From your clean computer..

    Please download OTLPE.zip and save it to a flash drive.

    Double click and unzip OTLPE.zip to its own folder on your flash drive. Name it OTLPE <-- Important!!


    Plug your flash drive into your sick computer now and do as instructed below..


    1. Restart Your sick Computer Using the UBCD4Win Disc That You Have Created
    • Insert the UBCD4Win disc in to one of your CD/DVD drives.
    • Restart your computer.
      • The computer should choose to boot from the UBCD4Win CD automatically. If it doesn't and you are asked if you want to boot from CD, then choose that option.
    • In the window that pops up select Launch The Ultimate Boot CD For Windows and press Enter.
      • It may take a little longer for the Desktop to appear than it does when you start your computer normally. Just let the process run itself until the desktop appears.
    • Once the desktop appears, you will receive a message asking: Do you want to start Network support?
      • Click on Yes if you want to use the PE environment to get online post your log and reply by way of an Ethernet connection.
    • You should now have a desktop that looks like this:


    Single click My computer from your UBCD4W desktop to navigate to the OTLPE folder that you saved to your flash drive.

    Open the OTLPE folder and double click Start.bat.
    • When asked "Do you wish to load remote user profile(s) for scanning", select Yes
    • Ensure the box "Automatically Load All Remaining Users" is checked and press OK
    • OTLPE should now start

      Change the following settings
      • Change Services, Drivers, Standard and Extra Registry to All

    • Copy and Paste the following code into the textbox. Do not include the word "Code"

      %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\*.
      %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\*.exe /s
      %APPDATA%\*.exe /s
      %systemroot%\system32\drivers\*.sys /lockedfiles
      %systemroot%\*. /mp /s
      %systemroot%\system32\*.dll /lockedfiles
      %systemroot%\system32\drivers\*.sys /90

    • Push
    • A report will open. Save that log to your flash drive. Copy and Paste that report in your next reply.


    With your next post please provide:

    * OTLPE.txt

    All the viruses, trojans and spyware (according to about 20-30 virus scanners and yes I undownloaded each before running another so no itnerefenance) told me that they were gone.

    It seems the only error I have no is RPC Server is unavailable, the virus got ahold of my sound driver, can't fix that till rpc server is available ><..

    My computer is a optiplex sx270, has no cd drive until I go and buy one (which I may have to do)..

    Can you help me on fixing the rpc server? I can't double click it in system services, its set to start automatically, can't do a system restore either..

    If you're happy that the malware has gone then please post the RPC server problem in a more appropriate forum, the Audio forum would be an option.

    Do you want me to keep this topic open or would you like it closed?
