Someone bought their Win XP Home edition computer to me with a serious root kit infection. After running numerous scanners of CDs like UBCD4Windows, Dr Web, Avira, the system is still infected. I also ran combo fix and other numerous rootlkit scanners.

But there is a few files I cannot get rid of. They are named "gxqyitde.exe" - one in the root c:, one in a program folder called "xrymxqtq" and one in the Start folder on the start menu. It as a mediaplayer like icon.

I can delete these files manually by booting of UBCD4Windows but they keep coming back. I think th reason why it's so hard is because of the registration entry: HKLM\software\microsoft\windowsnt\currentversion\winlogon\userinit.exe, c:\programs files\xrymxqtq\gxqyitde.exe.

I can delete it within windows but it keeps coming back. I can't remove it through Autoruns or Hijackthis. And I cannot boot into SafeMode.

I have tried to edit the registry through the utilities on the UBCD but no luck. Tried a CD called PCRegedit a bootable iso that in theory gives you the ability to edit the registry, but the mouse and keyboard always goes dead just after booting.

Any suggestions except for a complete format and reinstall. Also I fixed the master boot record just in case it was one of those infections but still no dice.

Hello having run ComboFix we need to see that and a DDS log.

Please go here....
Preparation Guide ,do steps 6 - 9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9 which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
Skip the GMER step and instead post the ComboFix log you have.

Let me know if that went well.
