Hello

I'm having problems. I have the message, trojan horse agent r_xj come up when I scan my computer with AVG version 10.0.1325 and it cannot remove it. Spybot also picks up other threats but it does manage to clear them. I have gone thru the malware removal guide, tried it several times infact, but I cannot get passed stage 8, the GMER scan, so I cannot get the Ark.txt file saved, as when I get near the end of the scan, after several hours! the computer screen goes blue, becomes unresponsive with the following message...

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

Good evening. :)

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, to svchost.exe
  • 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.

Thank you for taking the time and helping me. I think the problem has now been fixed as AVG no longer finds anything. :thumbsup:

Good evening. :)

May I have a look at the log that CF created: C:\ComboFix.txt.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

As long as all is well.

Your copy of Adobe Reader is out of date. You can get the latest version here, feel free to uncheck the McAfee download first, or you can update from within the program itself: Help > Check for Updates...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Your version of Sun Java needs updating:

1) Go here and click on the Windows XP/Vista/2000/2003/2008 Offline link in the Windows section near the top and save it to your Desktop.

2) Download JavaRa from here and save it to your Desktop.
You will need to extract the file(s):

Right click on the zipped folder and from the menu that appears, click on Extract All...
In the 'Extraction Wizard' window that opens, click on Next> and in the next window that appears, click on Next> again.
In the final window, click on Finish


***Please close any instances of Internet Explorer before continuing!***

  • Double-click JavaRa.exe to begin.
  • Pick your preferred language from the drop-down menu and click Select.
  • Click on Remove Older Versions to remove older version of Java - obvious really, isn't it!
  • Click Yes when prompted. When JavaRa is done, a notice will appear that a logfile has been produced. Click OK.
  • A logfile will pop up. Please save it to a convenient location, just in case you have any problems with Java afterwards.
3) Run the installer that you downloaded earlier.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Create a new Restore Point with a memorable name - this will give a clean one should you need it in the future. If you use a Restore Point from before this point you may reinstall any infection that was present at the time, so only do so if using this latest one doesn't solve any issues.
A tutorial for System Restore is available here.

Some bedtime reading: This is a very good tutorial about keeping your computer safe and secure on the internet. It's a little old, but still contains some good ideas.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

One more thing...

Your log doesn't appear to show a third-party software firewall installed - if you have one, and i've missed it, please ignore this.
If you are relying the firewall that comes with Service Pack 2, then you need to install one. While the SP2 firewall is better than nothing, it doesn't monitor outgoing traffic, so anything malicious on your computer can 'phone home' at will.
If you are using a wireless router that comes with a NAT hardware firewall, this also doesn't monitor outgoing connections.

There are a few free firewalls available, of which the following are just three (all of which i've used at one time or another) :

Comodo Firewall Pro, available here.
PC Tools Firewall Plus, available here.
Online Armor Free, available here.

It is important to note that you should only have one firewall installed at a time, but you can download them all to your Desktop and install each in turn to see which one you prefer.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
