Posted 28 May 2011 - 11:15 AM

First, I want to say thanks to EVERYONE who volunteers and helps on this site. You people are awesome!

Here is my problem:
I have an XP machine that has 4 users listed (family... 2 adults, 2 kids). Recently, one of the users (I don't know which one) did something to cause us to get some sort of virus. Using Malwarebytes, I was able to get rid of it and reinstall AVG. However, one user account is not loading AVG, and when I tried to use Malwarebytes, it wouldn't even open it, even if I save it using another name. Additionally, when you try to open AVG, Malwarebytes, iTunes and a few other miscellaneous programs, a black command screen pops up for a few seconds, then disappears and the programs never open. When I reboot and open this "problem user account" to try to see if I can find/identify any other behavior, several black command screens pop up with the heading YAV.EXE. After just a few moments, the screens disappear... and I have the other problems indicated.

Below is a log generated from HijackThis (which I also could not run from that specific user account... I had to use my user account to run the program):

Hello and welcome to the forums!

My secret agent name on the forums is SweetTech (you can call me ST for short), it's a pleasure to meet you. :)

I am very sorry for the delay in responding, but as you can see we are at the moment being flooded with logs which, when paired with the never-ending shortage of helpers, resulted in the delayed responding to your thread.

I would be glad to take a look at your log and help you with solving any malware problems.

If you have since resolved the issues you were originally experiencing, or have received help elsewhere, please inform me so that this topic can be closed.

If you have not, please adhere to the guidelines below and then follow instructions as outlined further below:

  • Logs from malware removal programs (OTL is one of them) can take some time to analyze. I need you to be patient while I analyze any logs you post. Please remember, I am a volunteer, and I do have a life outside of these forums.
  • Please make sure to carefully read any instruction that I give you. Attention to detail is important! Since I cannot see or directly interact with your computer I am dependent on you to "be my eyes" and provide as much information as you can regarding the current state of your computer.
  • If you're not sure, or if something unexpected happens, do NOT continue! Stop and ask!
  • In Windows Vista and Windows 7, all tools need to be started by right clicking and selecting Run as Administrator!
  • If I instruct you to download a specific tool in which you already have, please delete the copy that you have and re-download the tool. The reason I ask you to do this is because these tools are updated fairly regularly.
  • Do not do things I do not ask for, such as running a spyware scan on your computer. The one thing that you should always do, is to make sure sure that your anti-virus definitions are up-to-date!
  • Please do not use the Attachment feature for any log file. Do a Copy/Paste of the entire contents of the log file and submit it inside your post.
  • I am going to stick with you until ALL malware is gone from your system. I would appreciate it if you would do the same. From this point, we're in this together ;)
    Because of this, you must reply within three days
    failure to reply will result in the topic being closed!
  • Please do not PM me directly for help. If you have any questions, post them in this topic.
  • Lastly, I am no magician. I will try very hard to fix your issues, but no promises can be made. Also be aware that some infections are so severe that you might need to resort to reformatting and reinstalling your operating system.
    Don't worry, this only happens in severe cases, but it sadly does happen. Be prepared to back up your data. Have means of backing up your data available.
