My old desktop had a XP Total Security 2011 virus. I followed the directions on the "help page" to unistall it, but running the rkill and Malwarebyes. Computer running okay now, no longer any bogus infection screnes popping up, but happened to stumble on this in my msconfig:
Hope I type it exactly the same....

Startup item: Yabohoyu
Command: Rundll32.exe"c:\windows\system32\yabohoyu.dll".a
Location: software\Microsoft|Windows|Current Version\Run

It is not checked to run at start up.
What do I do?

With good guidance I can do anything.....thanks.

That was what the bogus software required to run, considering you have deleted the bogus you need not worry about that. It should left unchecked, else you will get a DLL error upon boot(due to the file not existing.)

Its fine, no need to worry!

Hello and welcome,yes just leave that one alone. You may have other malware though that is stoping yous.

Please download the TDSS Rootkit Removing Tool (TDSSKiller.exe) and save it to your Desktop. <-Important!!!
Be sure to download TDSSKiller.exe (v2.4.0.0) from Kaspersky's website and not TDSSKiller.zip which appears to be an older version 2.3.2.2 of the tool.
  • Double-click on TDSSKiller.exe to run the tool for known TDSS variants.
    Vista/Windows 7 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • If TDSSKiller does not run, try renaming it.
  • To do this, right-click on TDSSKiller.exe, select Rename and give it a random name with the .com file extension (i.e. 123abc.com). If you do not see the file extension, please refer to How to change the file extension.
  • Click the Start Scan button.
  • Do not use the computer during the scan
  • If the scan completes with nothing found, click Close to exit.
  • If malicious objects are found, they will show in the Scan results - Select action for found objects and offer three options.
  • Ensure Cure (default) is selected, then click Continue > Reboot now to finish the cleaning process.

  • Copy and paste the contents of that file in your next reply.

Thanks so much for answering me.

I hope I did everything correctly. I downloaded the TDSSKiller this morning and ran it. It didn't come up with anything at all

I downloaded the ATF and SUPERantispyware (and updated it), and checked the boxes according to your instructions. I then booted up in SAFEMODE. I ran the ATF cleaner and it didn't find anything. I then ran the SUPERantispyware and dashed off to work. When I can home, it had finished the scan, (didn't find anything), but their was a window that said:

SUPER Antispyware.exe - corrupt file
The following directory C:|$Mft is corrupt and unreadable. Please run Chkdsk utility

I closed everything and started up Normal Mode. Which then gave me a message that it recovered from a serious um...forget the word....something. (Should have taken a picture of it sorry).

This came up next when it asked me if I wanted to send an error report....and I did take a picture:

Posted Image

I don't know what any of that means....

I noticed that my McAfee is not working real time now.I was unable to update that too. :blink:

Disconnected Desktop from the internet and I am running the EST scan right now before I go off to work.

I am having what I believe is the same problem on my Toshiba Laptop...Windows 7. They were both infected within hours of each other.
Is it okay to run the EST scan on that one too? I hate to hog your time, but nobody answered me yet, Please see:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic392365.html/page__p__2214281__fromsearch__1#entry2214281

Both Computer use the McAfee provided by internet provider Verizon.

Results of ESET scan:

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\DoctorWeb\Quarantine\A0000018.EXE probably a variant of Win32/Adware.Agent.LCKGTSG application deleted - quarantined
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\DoctorWeb\Quarantine\DellSupportSilentInstall.EXE probably a variant of Win32/Adware.Agent.LCKGTSG application deleted - quarantined


Should I also run this on my laptop. Please advise.

Ran the ESP scan on my laptop too. It found one thing, also a WIN32...something, but then it didn't finish, last thing I remember it was at 87% and then nothing....so I ran it again, and this time it didn't find anything.

Windows XP (desktop) is still unable to manually, or even automatically do Windows updates with/without the Windows Security Center.

Windows 7 (laptop) is still able to manually do Windows updates, but not automatically, and the Windows Action Center (Security Center). Should I post the Laptop issues back on the other thread noted above?

What next? I am soooo ready to beat this thing!!!

  • Extract the zip file to your desktop.
  • Double click Dial-a-Fix.exe to start the program.
  • Press the green double checkmark box (Looks like this: Posted Image)
  • UNcheck "Empty Temp Folders", as well as "Adjust Time/Date" in the prep section. The prep section should then look like this:
    Posted Image
  • When the window looks like this, press the GO button in the bottom of the window.
    Posted Image
  • Exit/Close Dial-A-Fix

Actually things may be looking up for my old Dell Windows XP desktop! I noticed that when I shut it down last night after running the Dial-a-Fix, it took quite some time to shut down because it was installing "updates"!!! Wow! :woot:

This morning when I turned it on, there was no longer a red "shield" in my task bar. So, I thought I would double check the "Windows Update" manually to see for myself. So, went to the website, and I looked at "previous updates" and sure enough, it had been updated last night, and then I did a check to see if I needed anymore, and this time it let me check instead of giving me an error, and there was one more update that went through. :lol:

All I can say is WOW!!!! Looking better!! :thumbsup:

Are there any more directions for me to do?

I bet you will get me through my laptop issue too on the other post!

The Windows update last night was "Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool". And this morning's update was a Microsoft "C++", I think.
