Posted 27 November 2010 - 03:59 AM

I am working on a WinXP2 SP3 on a Dell Vostro Core2 duo with 2GB RAM.

The problem is that an accounting program called Agrimaster fails to start, and produces an error in the family:

“Object variable or with block variable not set”

Agrimaster support claim that this error is associated with Symantec NIS. Symantec support claim it is a Windows problem. The computer owner tells me Agrimaster and NIS were both working side by side until their computer was infected with a virus/Trojan. They used NIS to try to fix the infection before bringing the computer to me.

I removed the hard drive and scanned it with AVG running from a clean computer. AVG found one infection which it called Trojan Horse Java/Downloader.P and issued warnings on 4 corrupted executable files. I let AVG fix these problems before returning the drive to its original box.

I then installed and ran Spybot S&D, and it found remnants of the following Trojans: Refpron, Win32.Agent.atta, Win32.Delf.rtk, Win32.Seneka.rtk. I say remnants because Spybot was able to remove them easily with Windows running in full mode.

Agrimaster still would not start, so I uninstalled NIS completely and I used the Norton Removal Tool to ensure the job was done properly. Agrimaster still would not start.

I then asked the computer owner to install the same version of Agrimaster on a laptop, confirm that it worked, and then to send me a Hijack This (HJT) log. I ran HJT on this computer and put the logs on a spreadsheet to see what was running on this computer that was not running on the laptop. They were:

• C:\Program Files\Bonjour\mDNSResponder.exe
• C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\bin\AppleMobileDeviceService.exe
• C:\Program Files\Common Files\Java\Java Update\jusched.exe
• C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe
• C:\Program Files\Google\GoogleToolbarNotifier\GoogleToolbarNotifier.exe
• C:\Program Files\Google\Update\GoogleUpdate.exe
• C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe
• C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe
• C:\WINDOWS\system32\wuauclt.exe

For clarity there were four instances of svchost.exe running on this computer but only two on the laptop, so I listed the extra two here. I know very little about svchost.exe, except that it is a can of worms, but I can’t see anything which would cause a public variable used by a database application to get “lost”. I can’t see anything which would stop Agrimaster working.

Finally I ran Combofix. Don’t ask me why? I just saw it referred to in a forum, and wondered if it would find anything that I had missed. I did scan the executable before running it, and had a quick read of the “how to” page, but besides that I know very little about it. I noticed the program deleted a few files. It didn’t break anything but after running it, Agrimaster still failed to work.

Please note I didn’t write Agrimaster and have no access to their source code. However, I should be grateful if anyone knows of any infections or anything else which adversely affects the way MS stores public variables or for whatever reasons could cause these symptoms.

For completeness here is the Combofix log:

For the record and to close the thread, the solution was to slipstream the OEM CD with SP3 and to run a repair install of Win XP. There was no malware still running on the computer, but whatever infection there had been had corrupted one or more Windows files needed to run a database application correctly.
