Hi there.
I too have been hit with the Kernels64.exe downloader trojan. I have done the usual online scans (panda + Kaspersky) , ewidos and Norton av in safe mode.

Have identified and dealt with Tibs.bc and Zlob.DN downloader trojans, and MSCornet.exe, but am still greeted with "Cannot find Kernels64.exe Blah blah at start up. Have traced down the Registry entry to Mycomputer\hkey local machine\software\microsoft\windows nt\current version\logon.

My hijack this log is as follows

HI Bash,

Sorry for the delay, we've really been swamped lately. If you still need help, please start out by posting a new log in this thread. Please describe what you may have done to fix the problem and what is happening with your system now (since you posted your last log). And please turn System Restore back on.

One reason we're so swamped is because the Windows Metafile Vulnerability is being heavily exploited. So please visit Windows Update and apply ALL patches. This will help prevent reoccurance of malware that you can get from just clicking a certain link while we work on your system.

The thing about people

is they change

when they walk away.--Mipso

Papakid
Thanks for the reply.

I realised that there was a huge drain on resources caused by the metafile vulnerability, so I went through advice posted in previous Kernels64 posts by other users.

I restarted in safe mode and ran all the up to date versions of Norton AV, Ewidos security suite, lavasoft adaware, and spot seek and destroy. This removed the Tibs.bc and Zlob.DN downloader trojans, and MSCornet.exe.

I rebooted in normal mode but still got the Message that the file Kernels64.dll could not be found. I booted back into safe mode an removed the reference to Kernels64.dll from,

Mycomputer\hkey local machine\software\microsoft\windows nt\current version\logon\shell.

I then ran CC cleaner to resolve any problems in the registry caused by removing the trojans and the kernels reference.

When I rebooted the error message did not appear.

What concerns me is that I have not completely removed the problem and that I still seem to have far to many processes running to be healthy.

What concerns me is that I have not completely removed the problem and that I still seem to have far to many processes running to be healthy.

Are you saying you aren't sure if you've completely removed the problem or that there is something else happening? If the latter please describe it specifically. You do have one entry in HJT that needs to be corrected, but it's not critical and otherwise it looks good. However, I'd like to get some more info via some other logs.

Is your Task Manager functioning correctly or did you repair it?

You don't have way too many unnecessary startups compared to some logs I've seen, but I'll mark the ones that are known resource hogs/unnecessary in Green.

One other thing I see in your log that you may need to deal with to make your PC run smoother.

O23 - Service: Norman API-hooking helper (NipSvc) - Unknown owner - C:\NORMAN\Nvc\BIN\nipsvc.exe (file missing)

First the file missing may be incorrect--HJT has trouble with that sometimes-- but could you tell me if you have a Norman product installed and if so the exact name and version? Is it a full-featured anti-virus? Running two anti-virus in the background is not generally recommended as you will risk conflicts and an actual reduction in security, but there are exceptions to every rule and I'm not familiar enough with Norman to know if it should be removed or not.

Please to the following:

:huh: Update Ewido:
On the left hand side of the main screen click update.
- Click on Start update.
- The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.

If you are having problems with the updater, you can use this link to manually update ewido.
ewido manual updates

Once the updates are installed close Ewido.

:thumbsup: Now download WinPFind.zip and unzip the contents to the C:\ folder. Don't run it yet.

:flowers: Reboot your computer into Safe Mode and do the following:
  • Open ewido and click on scanner
    • Click on scanner
    • Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
    • NOTE: During some scans with ewido it is finding cases of false positives.**[list]
    • You will need to step through the process of cleaning files one-by-one.
    • If ewido detects a file you KNOW to be legitimate, select none as the action.
    • DO NOT select "Perform action on all infections"
    • If you are unsure of any entry found select none for now.
  • Once the scan has completed, there will be a button located on the bottom of the screen named Save report
  • Click Save report.
  • Save the report .txt file to your desktop.
Now close ewido security suite.

Scan again with HijackThis 1.99.1. Put a checkmark by the following entries, double-checking to be sure that only these entries are checked:

F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [nwiz] nwiz.exe /install
O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\OSA.EXE


Below are some other startups that are rated as not needed in most startups databases. However, some find them useful, so I recommend that you get more information before you fix these. See the following mini-tutorial for how to do that:

How To Use The Startup Database

You might also want to peruse the Windows Startup Programs Database subforum for more info and if you have any further questions.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [nwiz] nwiz.exe /install
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [BJCFD] C:\Program Files\BroadJump\Client Foundation\CFD.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Motive SmartBridge] C:\PROGRA~1\ntl\BROADB~1\SMARTB~1\MotiveSB.exe


Close all other windows--you should only see HijackThis on your Desktop--and then click the "Fix checked" button.

Locate the c:\winpfind\winpfind.exe file and double-click it to run it. Now click the Start Scan button to begin the scan.

When the scan is complete reboot normally and post the WinPFind.txt file (located in the WinPFind folder) back here and I will review the information when it comes in.

:huh: 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 few 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.

:huh: Scan again with HijackThis and post another log.

So i will need to see these logs in this order:

1. Ewido
2. PFind
3. Panda
4. HijackThis.
