admins: really not sure if this is correct forum so if it isn't feel free to move the thread elsewhere.
 
anyway: it started last night when i updated my xp machine(i have two computers, an old xp desktop and a new windows 8(bah humbug) laptop. upon restart the computer flashed up a message saying boot.ini was missing and it was booting from c:\windows instead. once i logged in i copied a backup of boot.ini and used it to replace the lost file, i more or less consulted websites the entire way through but it was remarkably simple.  then i contacted microsoft support about this and they were rather unhelpful. all thy really wanted was me to pay for some form of remote access support. i was advised to run a malwarebytes scan and i brought up one detection, a certain "pup.optional.softonic"  which i removed using malware bytes. as far as i can tell the softonic file was a .exe file i downloaded but never ran, it was a downloader app for mediafire that i once thought of trying but never used. after the restart my xp computer passed a quick scan as clean and and is as i type running a full scan, 48000 items and no detections yet. the scans produce log files but i don't know what they mean, can i post sections of there text here??  
can anyone help me to go over the log files and make sense of them, and can anyone suggest what may have caused the loss of boot.ini ???
microsoft insists it was not the updates, but did anyone else experience this when they updated xp recently.
also is it possible for any malware to escape detection by malwarebytes, norton(i think it's an old version but it has all the latest updates), trendmicro housecall, and the standard microsoft safety scanner that i downloaded recently???
 
swift answers would be apprecaiated
thank you

as another weird note whilst scanning with the microsoft safety scanner there appear to be far more items being scanned even though both are set for full scan

p22002970.gif Download Security Check from here or here and save it to your Desktop.

  • Double-click SecurityCheck.exe
  • 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.

NOTE 1. If one of your security applications (e.g., third-party firewall) requests permission to allow DIG.EXE access the Internet, allow it to do so.
NOTE 2 SecurityCheck may produce some false warning(s), so leave the results reading to me.

p22002970.gif Please download Farbar Service Scanner (FSS) and run it on the computer with the issue.
  • Make sure the following options are checked:
    • Internet Services
    • Windows Firewall
    • System Restore
    • Security Center/Action Center
    • Windows Update
    • Windows Defender
    • Other Services
  • Press "Scan".
  • It will create a log (FSS.txt) in the same directory the tool is run.
  • Please copy and paste the log to your reply.


p22002970.gif Please download MiniToolBox and run it.

Checkmark following boxes:
  • Report IE Proxy Settings
  • Report FF Proxy Settings
  • List content of Hosts
  • List IP configuration
  • List Winsock Entries
  • List last 10 Event Viewer log
  • List Installed Programs
  • List Devices (do NOT change any settings here)
  • List Users, Partitions and Memory size

Click Go and post the result.

p22002970.gif Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (aka MBAM): https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/malwarebytes-anti-malware/ to your desktop.

* Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
* At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select Perform quick scan, then click Scan.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* When completed, a log will open in Notepad.
* Post the log back here.

Be sure to restart the computer.

The log can also be found here:
C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs\log-date.txt
Or at C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs\log-date.txt

p22002970.gifDownload Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit from HERE to your Desktop.
  • Unzip downloaded file.
  • Open the folder where the contents were unzipped and run mbar.exe
  • Follow the instructions in the wizard to update and allow the program to scan your computer for threats.
  • DO NOT click on the Cleanup button. Simply exit the program.
  • When done, please post the two logs produced they will be in the MBAR folder..... mbar-log-xxxxx.txt and system-log.txt


p22002970.gif Please download Rkill (courtesy of BleepingComputer.com) to your desktop.
There are 2 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one.
You only need to get one of these to run, not all of them. You may get warnings from your antivirus about this tool, ignore them or shutdown your antivirus.

rKill.exe: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/dl/10/
iExplore.exe (renamed rKill.exe): http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/dl/11/

  • Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.
  • If using Vista or Windows 7 right-click on it and choose Run As Administrator.
  • A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
  • If not, delete the file, then download and use the one provided in Link 2.
  • Do not reboot until instructed.
  • If the tool does not run from any of the links provided, please let me know.


If normal mode still doesn't work, run the tool from safe mode.

When the scan is done Notepad will open with rKill log.
Post it in your next reply.

NOTE. rKill.txt log will also be present on your desktop.

NOTE Do NOT wrap your logs in "quote" or "code" brackets.

p22004219.gif

sorry about all that hold up. it was suggested in another place i was discussing this that i give you the url to that thread, 

http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_xp-windows_update/xp-bootini-goes-missing-why/9e02fc48-afaf-401f-82ee-07a2516453ed?page=2&rtAction=1385410403094

 

the mbam log is already here and i'll run the rest as soon as i get chance. can i just check that the logs will not contain any private information from my system(eg full licence numbers of installed software, large numbers of my documents files) before i post them on here. are they all supposed to be run in the order you posted them or is that irrelevant?

also i heard about bleepingcomputer's dds.scr when contacting malware bytes, now i know you probably don't want me running any other tools during the process but is it a good idea to use at some point?

that other thread also contains some info about my setup and other strange behaviours i have noticed, if you don't want to look through all of it i can post the key bits here.

thanks

DDS is not allowed in this forum.

 

There is nothing private in any of logs I requested.

Hundreds of logs like that are posted every day all over the internet.

Run those tools in order.

ok, you want all the logs from those. i'll post when i get chance to run them. that might not be until the weekend when i generally use the old machine. will those logs be enough to give you a clear and almost certain indication of whether it is infected. can i just ask what each is designed to detect? thanks

logs will follow when i have chance.

**** End of log ****
doing MBAM and MBAR now, then i'l do rkill. once again i remind you that the first program sent my antivirus into a rage so unless absolutely required i won't use it, even then it could be tricky(sorry for my paranoia).
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

My systems:2 laptops, intel i3 processors, windows 8.1 installed on the hard-drive and linux mint 17.3 MATE installed to USB
