Just finished getting the Google redirect mess fixed (host file deletes). I still have some issues that are suspiciously virus-like. Checked my msconfig startup tab in the system configuration utility and found this oddball I can't figure out

sexkwsas Rundll32.exe "C:\Documents and Settings\Davrid Sbur\Local Settings\Application Data\AML\sexkwsas.dll",InjectDll

Location SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

Dogpile search, Google search comes up with nothing.

Unchecked a bunch of startup services that were not needed including this unknown.
-
I use the AML registry cleaner every now and then.

I've tried to find this file and was unsuccessful.

What the heck is this and is it messing with me?


Thanks in advance

The entry surely looks suspicious but...

1. It's never a good idea to use "msconfig" to control your startups. Here is why: http://www.techrepublic.com/forum/discussions/102-326313-3250465

2.

I use the AML registry cleaner every now and then

.
Not a good idea either.
Registry cleaners/optimizers are not recommended for several reasons:

  • Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.

    The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.
  • Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to work.
  • Not all registry cleaners create a backup of the registry before making changes. If the changes prevent the system from booting up, then there is no backup available to restore it in order to regain functionality. A backup of the registry is essential BEFORE making any changes to the registry.
  • Improperly removing registry entries can hamper malware disinfection and make the removal process more difficult if your computer becomes infected. For example, removing malware related registry entries before the infection is properly identified can contribute to system instability and even make the malware undetectable to removal tools.
  • The usefulness of cleaning the registry is highly overrated and can be dangerous. In most cases, using a cleaner to remove obsolete, invalid, and erroneous entries does not affect system performance but it can result in "unpredictable results".
Unless you have a particular problem that requires a registry edit to correct it, I would suggest you leave the registry alone. Using registry cleaning tools unnecessarily or incorrectly could lead to disastrous effects on your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. For routine use, the benefits to your computer are negligible while the potential risks are great.

As requested. I did find a trojan Happili with Malware Anti. on the AVG scan the item found in msconfig showed up again and was highlighted in red. There was no option to fix it except in boot which I did not do as I didn't know what I was getting into.

Thanks in advance again-

FSS log is incomplete.
Redo.

=================================

Uninstall AML Free Registry Cleaner 4.19.
Registry cleaners/optimizers are not recommended for several reasons:

  • Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.

    The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.
  • Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to work.
  • Not all registry cleaners create a backup of the registry before making changes. If the changes prevent the system from booting up, then there is no backup available to restore it in order to regain functionality. A backup of the registry is essential BEFORE making any changes to the registry.
  • Improperly removing registry entries can hamper malware disinfection and make the removal process more difficult if your computer becomes infected. For example, removing malware related registry entries before the infection is properly identified can contribute to system instability and even make the malware undetectable to removal tools.
  • The usefulness of cleaning the registry is highly overrated and can be dangerous. In most cases, using a cleaner to remove obsolete, invalid, and erroneous entries does not affect system performance but it can result in "unpredictable results".
Unless you have a particular problem that requires a registry edit to correct it, I would suggest you leave the registry alone. Using registry cleaning tools unnecessarily or incorrectly could lead to disastrous effects on your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. For routine use, the benefits to your computer are negligible while the potential risks are great.


=====================================================

What is the file name and its location indicated by AVG?

Download Temp File Cleaner (TFC)
Alternate download: http://www.itxassociates.com/OT-Tools/TFC.exe
Double click on TFC.exe to run the program.
Click on Start button to begin cleaning process.
TFC will close all running programs, and it may ask you to restart computer.

=============================================================================

Please run a free online scan with the ESET Online Scanner

  • Disable your antivirus program
  • Tick the box next to YES, I accept the Terms of Use
  • Click Start
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Check Scan archives
  • Click Start
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, click on List of found threats
  • Click on Export to text file , and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
    NOTE. If Eset doesn't find any threats it'll NOT produce any log.

As requested.... Ran the FSS again with apparently the same results?

Nothing on ESET on demand scan.

The AVAST scan showed this line...
21:00:14.101 File: C:\Documents and Settings\Davrid Sbur\Local Settings\Application Data\AML\sexkwsas.dll **INFECTED** Win32:Downloader-PLX [Trj]

I have uninstalled the AML Registry Cleaner

Ran the temp file cleaner, it was quite busy.

Is "sexkwsas.dll" the very same file triggering AVG?
Can't AVG remove it?

After I uninstalled AML and ran AVAST a second time it did not show up on the AVAST log. However, it still shows up in msconfig. The first time with AVAST it did not offer a standard fix but a fixMbr and warned me about such a fix. I opted not to fix it not knowing what I was doing.

Here is how it currently appears in msconfig...

sexkwsas Rundll32.exe "C:\Documents and Settings\Davrid Sbur\Local Settings\Application Data\AML\sexkwsas.dll",InjectDll

Location SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

I cannot locate it manually, there is no Application Data\AML.....in my local settings unless it is hidden.
