Yesterday I download a file which I thought would install a simple free plugin for an audio program I use. It quickly turned out to be a virus. I happened to have my NOD32 virus scanner turned off (because of speed reasons for a videogame) but I quickly realised that I made a big mistake by installing it: it was malware. My PC immediately slowed down, got unresponsive and after 10 seconds or so I turned on NOD32 again. It immediately gave a notice that it was blocking things. 15 seconds later my whole PC froze. I rebooted but I kept getting a blue screen. Tried to get into safe mode... no luck either. Inserted my Windows XP CD, went to the recovery console to use the fixboot and fixmbr commands and repaired Windows via the CD. Now Windows boots again, so I have been running ESET NOD32 and MBAM to get rid of a lot of malware. However, it has become apparant that I keep getting malware files in my Temp folder, and no matter how many times I clean them, they keep coming back. There is definitely still a virus or malware on my PC. Also, the ESET firewall I have installed warned me that some obscure looking process wanted to access the internet (something like u2hf28fh348hg43.exe) which I obviously declined.

My PC is defintely infected and I could really use some help! I would greatly appreciate it, thanks in advance :)

Here is my HijackThis log, and I will also post an important part of my MBAM log. It was in Dutch, so I've translated the most certain important parts of it. At the bottom of this post you can see that MBAM has deleted a malware file called Spyware.Passwords.XGen, should I be worried about my passwords? I haven't typed in any password since the virus infected my PC, but I have passwords stored in Firefox (auto login and so forth).

Again, thank you for the help!

Quick update, I don't really dare to go on the internet because those processes in my Temp map (that I can't get rid of) keep trying to access the internet. Looks like a virus that MBAM / NOD32 can't seem to delete :(

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

I'm judicandus and I'll be helping you out.

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.

Please refrain from running tools or applying updates other than those we suggest while we are cleaning up your computer. The reason for this is so we know what is going on with the machine at any time. Some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process. Please also continue to work with me until I give you the all clear. Even if your computer appears to act better, you may still be infected.

Even if you have already provided information about your PC, we need a new log to see what has changed since you originally posted your problem.

Once we start working together, please reply back within 3 days or this thread may be closed so we can help others who are waiting.

We will begin with ComboFix.exe. Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running the tool:


* Ensure you have disabled all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply for further review.
