Hello, and happy new year! It's been a while since I have been engaged on the site. My question is: What virus that is current that will create system folders and affect audio online like on youtube?

Items noticed and steps taken. Window XP system

Apparently there is a file that appears as a .txt file located in the Administrator user menu (noticed this from safemode) the file in question is epor.exe (under startmenu). If you try and disable from msconfig, it will populate another command to handicap the system. Can't find the epor.exe file in the registry. I couldn't delete this file for nothing. out of curiosity, I clicked on the file to see what content were listed. The file created another system folder. The user name will not be listed in your main users, but will create a system folder/user within the documents and setting's folder.

Steps taken. Removing files from registry, logged in safemode,command prompt and attempted to force remove the directory using rd /S. I attempted attrib commands to change the folder permissions. I've used killbox to delete directory on reboot changing from process to system, as the option type to delete. Used combofix. Combofix detects a rootkit. Smitfraud keeps decting and removing, suspect replication. AVG detect virus as well. I attempted to handicap the files by renaming or removing from registry to no avail.; this virus is constantly attaching itself and replicating. Customer attempts to install google chrome, it won't accept, but appears as though you had installed.

I like to know what is this virus and a fix if you have one. This is one of the toughest cookies I have ever seen and spent nearly four hours in an attempt prior to researching on the web and coming here for assistance.

Any suggestions?

Hello,

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at step 6.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Since you have run ComboFix, please include the ComboFix log in the new topic. Please be sure to include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to try to resolve them.

If you cannot produce any of the other logs, then please create the new topic anyway, include the information that you were unable to produce the other logs and why and include the ComboFix log along with a description of your computer issues.
