Posted 28 December 2005 - 06:59 PM

When I restart the computers (Windows XP Pro) I get a notice first that Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. I chose DON'T SEND REPORT, and close the window.

The window under that says Windows cannot find 'C:\Windows\System32\Kernels64.exe' make sure blah blah....

I close that.

I already did the Norton Scan, Spyware Doctor scan, updated Microsoft blaster, etc. It removed a couple of Trojans, but thought all was ok, restart, get the same messages.

Now, it's telling me the Task Manager has been disabled by Admin (me!!!) when I hit CTRL/ALT/DELETE

Here's the log:

Folks - I hope I have posted this information in the correct forum. If not, please advice.

Also - by browsing these forums it is absolutely incredible what you guys do for people with computer problems (no sucking up here... I honestly mean that).

I ran Ewido (free download) last night in the safe mode and there were 82 spywares on the computer. I deleted those.

The first part of my previous post, "When I restart the computers (Windows XP Pro) I get a notice first that Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. I chose DON'T SEND REPORT, and close the window" seems to be resolved, however the Kernels box still pops up when I restart. I also figured out via Microsoft how to resolve the task manager issue. I ran a complete, full scan of Norton (with up-to-date downloads) last night as well -- nothing found.

The small start up icons/shortcuts on the bottom right of the screen were missing as well before all of this, and have since returned since the scan, etc.

So, that's where I am at today.

I hope to hear from someone soon.

All the best / Jim

Hello,

I don't know what you have tried in a meanwhile, that's why I need a new hijackthislog, because things will be changed in it.
But before posting the new log, please perform next:

Download win32delfkil.exe: http://users.telenet.be/marcvn/tools/win32delfkil.exe
Save it on your desktop.
Double click on win32delfkil.exe and install it. This creates a new folder on your desktop: win32delfkil
Close all windows, open the win32delfkil folder and double click on fix.bat.
FOLLOW the prompts!
Most probably it will tell you you have to use the power button to shut down your system. Please do so when asked.

Post the contents of the logfile c\windelf.txt and a new hijackthislog.
Then we'll deal with the rest.

Great!

We already got rid of that one stubborn infection, so let's deal with the rest now.

We also need to disable your Microsoft AntiSpyware Real-time Protection as it may interfere with the fixes.

Open Microsoft AntiSpyware.
Click on Tools, Settings.
In the left pane, click on Real-time Protection.
Under Startup Options uncheck: Enable the Microsoft AntiSpyware Security Agents on startup (recommended).
Under Real-time spyware threat protection uncheck: Enable real-time spyware threat protection (recommended).
After you uncheck these, click on the Save button and close Microsoft AntiSpyware.
Right click on the Microsoft AntiSpyware icon on the taskbar and select Shutdown Microsoft AntiSpyware.

* Start HijackThis, close all open windows leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following:

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant =
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page = C:\WINDOWS\about.htm
R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {00A6FAF6-072E-44cf-8957-5838F569A31D} - C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\SrchAstt\1.bin\MWSSRCAS.DLL (file missing)
F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\kernels64.exe

O16 - DPF: {DBA230D1-8467-4e69-987E-5FAE815A3B45} -


* Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.
Make sure your Internet Explorer is closed when you click Fix Checked!

Delete next file if still present:

C:\WINDOWS\alt.exe

REBOOT

* Perform an onlinescan with panda: (please use this scanner instead of any other scanner!)
Panda Online
- Once you are on the Panda site click the Scan your PC button
- A new window will open...click the Check Now button
- Enter your Country
- Enter your State/Province
- Enter your e-mail address and click send
- Select either Home User or Company
- Click the big Scan Now button
- If it wants to install an ActiveX component allow it
- It will start downloading the files it requires for the scan (Note: It may take a couple of minutes)
- When download is complete, click on Local Disks to start the scan
- When the scan completes, if anything malicious is detected, click the See Report button, then Save Report and save it to a convenient location.
Post the contents of the Panda scan report together with a new hijackthislog in your next reply.

Also, is your problem with the disabled taskmanager solved now?
If not, please perform next as well..

Open notepad and copy and paste next bold in it:
(don't forget to copy and paste REGEDIT4)

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
"DisableTaskMgr"=-


Save this as fix.reg Choose to save as *all files and place it on your desktop.
This is how the regfix must look afterwards: Posted Image
Doubleclick on it and when it asks you if you want to merge the contents to the registry, click yes/ok.

My friend - I rebooted before downloading the Panda and the kernel64.exe window was gone!!! Amazing, is all I have to say.

Yes, I fixed the task manager issue last night. Thanks for asking.

Do you people accept payments for your services? There service you people provide total strangers via this forum is nothing short of absolutely FANTASTIC! If so, how do I go about sending you guys a few bucks?

I ask your advice - I have Norton AntiVirus, but don't have their complete package that guards SPAM, viruses like I have had, etc. I am thinking about upgrading to the best they have. Do you recommend this, or is there another "all around protection" vendor you would recommend.

Here are the Panda Results (2 viruses, 1 suspicious file, spyware 1) and below that, the latest "HiJackThis" log for your review.

Hi Jim,

Almost done. :thumbsup: I see a clean log.

Delete next file:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\vx.tll

I see Panda also flagged next as a possible Virus:

C:\Program Files\Fruit Lockers\Lockers.exe

Do you know that program Fruit Lockers? Do you use it? In case you don't use it, I suggest you better uninstall it if present in your software > add/remove programs and delete the entire C:\Program Files\Fruit Lockers-folder afterwards, after uninstalling if still present.
Because you never know. Could be a false positive as well though, so in case you use it, let me know.

Do you people accept payments for your services? There service you people provide total strangers via this forum is nothing short of absolutely FANTASTIC! If so, how do I go about sending you guys a few bucks?


Our help is for free and we love to do this for free. That's why a donation is not needed. I do have a donationlink in my sig, but as I said, if you donate or not, it was still a pleasure to help you. :flowers:

I ask your advice - I have Norton AntiVirus, but don't have their complete package that guards SPAM, viruses like I have had, etc. I am thinking about upgrading to the best they have. Do you recommend this, or is there another "all around protection" vendor you would recommend.


I've been using Norton in the past before, but switched to Kaspersky because it's more powerfull imho.
They have the full security suite as well with a firewall, antivirus, antispam..
You can find more info here: http://www.kaspersky.com/personal-security
You can try the trial version.
Keep in mind, if you decide to install another antivirus etc.. please uninstall everything Norton/symantec related first, because more than one antivirus/firewall present on your system can cause errors, system slowdowns, even crashes, because they are not compatible and decrease the reliability of it seriously!

If you decide to keep Norton, you can also install a standalone antispamtool which is also great such as Mailwasher: http://www.mailwasher.net/
You can choose there for the free version or the Pro version.
The pro version has a lot more options, but the free version also works like a charm.

To keep this clean in the future, I would suggest the following things:

Install Spywareblaster
SpywareBlaster doesn`t scan and clean for so-called spyware, but prevents it from being installed in the first place. It blocks the popular spyware ActiveX controls, and also prevents the installation of any of them via a webpage.

* Avoid illegal sites, because that's where most malware is present.
* Don't click on links inside popups.
* Don't click on links in spam messages claiming to offer anti-spyware software; because most of these so called removers ARE spyware.
* Download free software only from sites you know and trust. Because a lot of free software can bundle other software, including spyware.

Let your antispywarescanner(s) scan frequently and don't forget to update before.

And I do suggest you perform an online virusscan once in a while. (Housecall and/or Bitdefender). Because what one virusscanner can't find another one maybe can.
Also make sure that your virusscanner, the one that is installed on your system is always up to date!

Make sure your windows has the latest updates: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/

If you are having XP SP2, read here how to configure Security Features for Internet Explorer:

Miekiemoes -

I am at the office right now, so will have to take the final steps when I get home in a couple of hours.

Before I get around to thanking you again, you mentioned:

Delete next file:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\vx.tll

Can you tell me where do I do this at? In DOS or in Windows? In any event, can you walk me through the deletion process of that?

I saw Fruit Lockers as well. I believe this is something my 12 year old son uses for on-line games.

Again, MANY, MANY thanks... I will get rid of the vx.tll when I get home soon.

All the best... Jim

Hi Jim,

No problem at all.

To delete that file, you have to browse to it via Windows.. so Click My Computer > click C:\ > Open Windows-folder, Open System32-folder and search for the vx.tll file and delete it (rightclick and choose delete)
Don't delete similar looking files.

Can you ask your son if he still uses fruit lockers? Because the possibility exists that the lockers.exe (which I think is the launcher for the online games) could be infected.

A good idea is to let that file scan here: http://www.virustotal.com/flash/index_en.html
On top you'll find: Browse
click the Browse button and browse to next file:

C:\Program Files\Fruit Lockers\Lockers.exe

select it, click open in your window, so you'll see
C:\Program Files\Fruit Lockers\Lockers.exe in the field at http://www.virustotal.com/flash/index_en.html
Then click the Send button on your right.

This will scan the file with several different scanners.
The scan can take a couple of minutes.
Then the results will be displayed.
Then rightclick on the results and choose: select all, so they get highlighted
Then copy and paste the results in your next reply.
We'll see what other scanners will flag that file as well as infected.

By the way, it's a good idea to bookmark that virustotal-link, because, in case you find a suspicious file, you can also upload it there and check if it's infected or not. :thumbsup:

Miekiemoes... if you're ever in America... you have a FREE room/food at my place!

Here are the results from FruitLocker, scanned at Virustotal.....
I will contact my son (he's with Mom skiing in West Virginia... I had to work this week...) and ask him if he's familiar with that site. Thanks again in advance - Jim

Hello,

I see three scanners flag this file as suspicious. I am going to install that Fruit Lockers myself and look at it.
Is it the full version or the trial your son is using? In case it's the trial, it has time limits and he won't be able to play it now anyway... so better he uninstalls/deletes it.
In case he paid for it, it's ok.
And, in case he still can play it without paying for it, I strongly recommend he deletes it, because in that case, most probably he installed a hacked/cracked version which could indeed be infected.

I'll let you know anyway what this free version gives me and if those scanners also flag that file as infected. :thumbsup:

Dear Miekiemoes

I spoke to both sons -- neither of them are familiar with it -- so if a deletion is in order, please tell me how and I'll zap it.

I am off right now to the store to buy some Internet protection as recommended above....

Again, I appreciate your help. I honestly do... Jim

Ok..

Well, go to start > controlpanel > software > add/remove programs and look if Fruit Lockers is in the list there.
If so, choose for remove/uninstall
Don't worry if it's not present there.
Then check afterwards if next folder is gone:

C:\Program Files\Fruit Lockers

If not, delete that folder manually. So rightclick on the Fruit Lockers-folder and choose delete.

And glad I could help. :thumbsup:
