Hello,

 

Recently my computer started acting a little funny after I installed a new harddrive and cloned the data from a previous dying one.  Whenever I start windows some desktop.ini txt file autoruns and opens and has some weird text in it (doesnt seem malicious tho) but I cant find the file or its startup run command to figure out whats casusing it.  Also, whenever I ctrl shift esc, my CPU usage is always at 65% or 70% then it drops down to mid 20s which is still rather high for nothing running.  Take a look at the hijack log included below, Thank you

Adding to above, i found several (50) copies of the desktop.ini files on my computer.  This is the contents that shows up:

 

 

[.ShellClassInfo]
LocalizedResourceName=@%programfiles%\windows journal\journal.exe,-62005

 

Also, I should note that while looking at the task manager in the above situation where I get 65% load, I show all processes and rank by cpu usage and none listed are above normal ranges, so I dont even know which process or service is causing it.  my ram is also always half used now rather than the usual 10%

 

also I noticed this line above:

O15 - Trusted Zone: http://software.kuaiche.com

I tried going to the site and chrome indicated it as a malware site.... hmm suspicious.

 

thank you.

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.

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.
===

Search and delete the AdWare, PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) installed on your computer.

Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your Desktop.
  • Close all open programs and internet browsers.
  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
  • Click on Delete tab follow the prompts.
  • A log file will automatically open after the scan has finished.
  • Please post the content of that log file with your next answer.
  • You can find the log file at C:\AdwCleaner[Rn].txt (n is a number).
===

Please download ComboFix from any of the links below, and save it to your desktop. For information regarding this download, please visit this web page: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix
Link 1
Link 2

IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop

1. Close any open browsers.
2. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
3. Do not install any other programs until this if fixed.

Double click on ComboFix.exe and follow the prompts.
  • When finished, it will produce a report for you.

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

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

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.
