AVG warns of multiple infections of the windows.0\explorer.exe file hundreds of times a day. Computer hangs with empty desktop when most anything is tried.

Good evening. :)

Pay a visit to the ESET Online Scanner.

  • Click the ESET Online Scanner button, read the info in the new window, check the appropriate box and click Start.
  • Accept the ActiveX download, and allow it to install.
  • Once this has been completed, you will see the Computer Scan settings page - ensure that you uncheck the "Remove found threats" box and then click Start.
  • The virus signature database will now need to be downloaded, so don't forget to instruct your firewall to permit it if it asks.
  • The above will take a little time, so now is a good time to fire up the kettle and open the biccies.
  • Once the scan has completed you will be shown the results - assuming that the scanner has found anything.
  • Click List of found threats and then Export to text file... and save the log somewhere convenient.
  • You can then close out the scanner - don't bother uninstalling it as you may need to use it again.
  • Please post the contents of this file in your next reply, or let me know that nothing was identified.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

Thanks for your super quick response. I scanned with ESET and it found 4 infected files. The Java updater has always acted kind of funny and there was some attempted activity by it just before these symptoms presented themselves.

C:\Documents and Settings\Steve\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\6.0\40\10711a28-60101116 a variant of Win32/Kryptik.JNK trojan

C:\WINDOWS.0\system32\nt.dll Win32/Bamital.EZ trojan

C:\WINDOWS.0\system32\winlogon.exe Win32/Patched.GN trojan

Operating memory Win32/Patched.GN trojan

Good evening. :)

Do you have access to another computer running Windows XP Pro Service Pack 3 that you could liberate a couple of files from?

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

I have a laptop running the XP Tablet Edition with sp3. It also has the kryptik infection but in a different location and without symptoms. I found it while running eset on it. I'm attempting to clear that one and others using Avast pre boot scan (On the Tablet, not the computer you are helping me with). What files do I need? I have a Windows Home Server and a couple of laptops running Windows 7.

The Avast pre boot scan seems to have cleared out the trojan on my tablet and so its files may be of use for this computer after all. An Eset scan of that tablet revealed no infection. I will delete the backups on WHS for the tablet but I don't know how to delete any restore points it may have. Part of the infection was in the hiberfil.sys file. This computer remains infected (not the tablet)and I don't think I can clean it with Avast since it is infecting a protected system file.

Good evening. :L)

We'll see if an automatic fix works first, and if that doesn't, we'll go with a manual file replacement which is a little more involved.

Take a trip to this webpage for download links and instructions for running Combofix by sUBs: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix *

  • When prompted to save Combofix, change the filename BEFORE saving it - any name will do, as long as it has .exe at the end.
  • Please be aware that this tool may require the PC to be rebooted so close any programs you have open before you start.
  • When CF has finished, it will produce a log - C:\ComboFix.txt - copy and paste
  • Let me know how the PC is behaving.
* There are two points to note from the instructions page:

1) The Recovery Console.

It is recommended that you install this as, in certain circumstances, it may be the difference between a successful repair and a reformat. If you are uncertain as to whether or not you already have the Recovery Console installed, simply run CF and it will prompt you if it does not detect it.
CF will complete some, but not all, of it's removal tasks without the installation of the Console, so you are free to choose whether you want to complete this step, but it is in your interests to do so.

2) Disabling your Anti-Virus.

CF has been the victim of false-positive detections on occasion and a resident AV may incorrectly identify and delete part of the tool which won't do it much good. If you don't disable your AV, you may not get the results you hoped for!

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

As there has been no response for five days this thread is now closed.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
