Hi All: I work at a small civil engineering firm (I am a very civil engineer) and I ended up as the default network administrator. Yeah that means trouble. Anyway, our student co-op computer tends to somehow get malware and other issues. Recently, when AutoCAD2006 attempts launch, it has a blue screen crash. A search with the error number suggested registry issue. So I [foolishly] downloaded what was recommended by Cnet as the safe reg cleaner (Wise Registry Cleaner) and ran it. The computer was worse. I undid the cleaner using the backup it created and still was blinky. I tried a restore point. Windows XP SP3. still blinky. I then updated and ran Mbam and found and had MBam remove: Trojan.Agent.MRGGen Yes, I should have run Mbam first. (20/20 hindsight)
Computer boots still variable. We have McAfee Security as a Service (SaaS) on all network machines. Could not get console or scan to run on this one. Also could not get McAfee Virtual Technician (MVT) to install, could not uninstall SaaS to allow reinstall of McAfee SaaS So decided to check with Hijackthis. Could not install the Hijackthis Installer version (even renamed), so ran the executable (renamed) directly off of a flash drive. That worked and the log is attached. Also, when trying to install the MVT, I get message that MVT cant install because another progam is trying to install. There is an ! error message on an icon in the system tray and the message is: Please restart your computer to finalize the installation of Ad-Watch Live! This doesnt make sense since the computer has been rebooted dozens of times in trying to fix the problem. Also, there are two processes: AAWService.exe and AAWTray.exe that are major memory hogs on startup. The error message these processes all appear to be associated with Ad-aware, and I tried to uninstall that, but the Ad-aware Install Wizard hangs at "Uninstalling Ad-aware" and the progress bar does not move across. I would greatly appreciate any help you could provide, especially if you see something sketchy in the attached log. I would rather be designing roads, pipes and sites than doing this which I obviously have the right amount of knowledge to get myself in a pickle. I do have the computer occaisionally booting to normal mode and some programs can open and run: Word, XL, Notepad, can get on line. But it is rather blinky. Thanks for being there and helping, Scott

Hello, Welcome to BleepingComputer.
I'm nasdaq and will be helping you.

If you can please print this topic it will make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps.
===

Your Hosts file was compromised and must be reset back to the default.
How To:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/972034

Use the Fix it button on the page.
===

Please download ComboFix from one of these locations:

Link 1
Link 2

* IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop

  • Disable your Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools
  • Close any open browsers, and all other programs working. Make sure you save your file if working on a document.
  • Do not install any other programs until this if fixed.[/b]
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.
  • Some Rookit infection may damage your boot sector. The Windows Recovery Console may be needed to restore it. Do not bypass this installation. You may regret it.

**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.

Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:

Posted Image

Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.

Note: If you have difficulty properly disabling your protection programs, refer to this link --> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic114351.html

Do not mouse click ComboFix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall

Note: If after running ComboFix you get this error message "Illegal operation attempted on a registry key that has been marked for deletion." when attempting to run a program all you need to do is restart the computer to reset the registry.
===

Third party programs if not up to date can be the cause of infiltration an infection.

Please run this security check for my review.

Download Security Check by screen317 from here.
  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
  • A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.
===

Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your Desktop.
  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
  • Click on Search.
  • A logfile will automatically open after the scan has finished.
  • Please post the content of that logfile with your next answer.
  • You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[Rn].txt (n is a number).
===

Please post the logs and let me know if the problem persists.
