Hiya, can anyone help with a nasty little bug I am having masses od issues getting rid of.

Scans are finding it called "Win32/Patched.HN trojan" or "Trojan Dropper\SVChost-fake"
It is being found in memory so far.

I have tried to run the following with results

Malware bytes - runs for a few seconds then says windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. you may not have the appropriate permissions to access the file. then it says this everytime on re running

Hijack this - says windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. you may not have the appropriate permissions to access the file also says same on re running.

Running Rkill (the only one to run successfully) gives the below everytime run, even if done again immediately
Rkill was run on 09/07/2011 at 21:56:21.
Operating System: Windows Vista ™ Home Premium
Processes terminated by Rkill or while it was running:

trying to rename an exe says access denied.

Everytime I run a program I get a are you sure, yes / no message.

Only scan run completely was Eset which gave below result:
C:\Program Files\Bonjour\mDNSResponder.exe Win32/Patched.HN trojan cleaned - quarantined
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\AppleMobileDeviceService.exe Win32/Patched.HN trojan cleaned - quarantined
C:\Program Files\Google\Update\GoogleUpdate.exe Win32/Patched.HN trojan error while cleaning
C:\Program Files\Kontiki\KService.exe Win32/Patched.HN trojan error while cleaning
C:\Program Files\Launch Manager\WisLMSvc.exe Win32/Patched.HN trojan error while cleaning

Please, can anyone help me?

Also now google chrome won't work.

I have only just been able to run some of the requested reports although GMER seemed to crash halfway through.

I have disabled my cd emulator

Included below are:
DDS txt file and the Attatch txt file
GMER Log file although this did appear to be shut down. I was not able to untick the IAT /EAT box as t shut down too soon so the log is from the firsrt scan on opening I presume.

Malwarebytes will not run.

DDS txt file

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!
  • 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.


Rootkit UnHooker (RkU)
Please download Rootkit Unhooker from one of the following links and save it to your desktop.
Link 1 (.exe file)
Link 2 (zipped file)
Link 3 (.rar file)In order to use this tool if you downloaded from either of the second two links, you will need to extract the RKUnhookerLE.exe file using a program capable of extracing ZIP and RAR compressed files. If you don't have an extraction program, you can downlaod, install and use the free 7-zip utility.

  • Double-click on RKUnhookerLE.exe to start the program.
    Vista/Windows 7 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • Click the Report tab, then click Scan.
  • Check Drivers, Stealth Code, and uncheck the rest.
  • Click OK.
  • Wait until it's finished and then go to File > Save Report.
  • Save the report to your Desktop.
  • Copy and paste the contents of the report into your next reply.
-- Note: You may get this warning...just ignore it, click OK and continue: "Rootkit Unhooker has detected a parasite inside itself! It is recommended to remove parasite, okay?".


Running OTL

We need to create a FULL OTL Report
  • Please download OTL from here:
  • Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
  • Click the "Scan All Users" checkbox.
  • Change the "Extra Registry" option to "SafeList"
  • Push the Posted Image button.
  • Two reports will open, copy and paste them in a reply here:
    • OTL.txt <-- Will be opened
    • Extras.txt <-- Will be minimized


Please provide an update on how things are running in your next reply.
