Hi all,

My first post:

My WinXP Home Edition desktop was recently infected by a virus (started with SP2 and upgraded to SP3 as part of the effort to disinfect). There were two main symptoms:

1) Google search result links were redirected to malware sites. These sites seemed to cause more problems (browser is Firefox v 3.6.12).

2) Dialog occasionally poped up: title: "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services"
Content: "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close..."
I have a strong suspicion that the dialog is part of the virus itself.

In about half an hour or so after boot the machine became unusabe (i.e. could not launch simple apps like notepad).

Over the last 2 days I have frantically tried various things (Microsoft Defenor scan, malware bytes anti malware scan, and tdssrootkill) to fix the problem. The last of these is to run your combofix tool.

I think that combofix found and removed some things. I am being careful not to use the machine much (am writting this on another machine) until I have more confidence its health. Although it appears to be running more stably judging by a bit of experimentation.

I am hoping that someone knowlegeable can look at the attached combofix, and tell me such confidence is justified.

I have tied to be as complete as possible in my description -- at the risk of being ovely verbose.

Thanks in advance,
Henry

Edit: Moved topic from XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Hi:

I will follow the documented procedure and post a new topic.

Sorry for my confusion.

Regards,
Henry

Hi all,

My second post:

I am posting again -- this time after having gone thru the proper procedure.
I have run the various diagnostic tools and am including the produced logs.
The original post describing my problem is below. As I mentioned, I had already run combofix before running the diagnostic tools -- so the
virus/malware may have already been removed. (May appologies again for not following procedure).

Thanks again,
Henry

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer :welcome:

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.

If you have not done so, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Upon completing the steps below another staff member will review your topic an do their best to resolve your issues.

If you have already posted a DDS log, please do so again, as your situation may have changed.
Use the 'Add Reply' and add the new log to this thread.

Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan:
  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explaination about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
  • Notepad will open with the results.
  • Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
  • Close the program window, and delete the program from your desktop.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run. After downloading the tool, disconnect from the internet and disable all antivirus protection. Run the scan, enable your A/V and reconnect to the internet.

Information on A/V control HERE

We also need a new log from the GMER anti-rootkit scanner. Please first disable any CD emulation programs using the steps found in this topic:

Why we request you disable CD Emulation when receiving Malware Removal Advice

Then create another GMER log and post it as an attachment to the reply where you post your new DDS log. Instructions on how to properly create a GMER log can be found here:

How to create a GMER log



IMPORTANT NOTE: :nono:

ComboFix should not be run without the guidance of a helper. It is a powerful tool and is intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert", NOT for private or regular use. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again.
