Hello.

I think my PC is in quite some trouble.
It all started when my virus scanner alerted me of a msvcrl.dll (a keylogger) which then got removed. After that my IE6 wouldn't work anymore because the .exe was corrupted, iexplore.exe thought he needed msvcrl.dll to start (but he doesn't).
I could not update to IE7 because that gives a blue screen for some reason (of course Windows says it's something with my drivers that caused the problem, yea right..) Anyway I fixed that problem by overwriting the iexplore.exe with a working one from another PC which also had IE6 installed.
After that I had some file windows2k6.exe, of which my virus scanner thought it might be a virus, so I removed that one too (and nothing bad happened...)

But now.. When I open task manager I have SIX instances of svchost.exe running. I know this is not normal! There are 3 running from 'SYSTEM', taking about 4.2, 27.5 and 4.8 mb memory respectively. There are 2 running from 'NETWORK SERVICE', taking about 4.0 and 4.8 mb memory respectively. Then there's 1 running from 'LOCAL SERVICE' which takes about 4.8 mb of memory.

My virus scanner recently told me that svchost.exe had downloaded a trojan for me (or something like that), which I then of course removed, but just now I have another trojan in my pc while I did nothing weird!

So, to make a long story short, I suspect that some svchost.exe is corrupted, downloading all sorts of trojans on my pc. I googled some but couldn't really find any useful information. And because of my recent virus history I think there maybe more things wrong. So, I included a HJT log.

Note 2: Hey when I just scrolled up I noticed that one of the svchost.exe is in System32 instead of system32, that's not right is it..?

Your svchost's are correct and normal

Are you in Argentina??

If not do this

Download Hoster from here:
www.funkytoad.com/download/hoster.zip
Run the program Hoster and press Restore Original Hosts, OK, and Exit Program.
======================



You may want to print this or save it to notepad as we will go to safe mode.

Fix these with HiJackThis – mark them, close IE, click fix checked

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SvcManager] windows2k6.exe

DownLoad http://www.downloads.subratam.org/KillBox.zip or
http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/killbox.exe

Restart your computer into safe mode now. (Tapping F8 at the first black screen) Perform the following steps in safe mode:

Double-click on Killbox.exe to run it. Now put a tick by Standard File Kill. In the "Full Path of File to Delete" box, copy and paste each of the following lines one at a time then click on the button that has the red circle with the X in the middle after you enter each file. It will ask for confimation to delete the file. Click Yes. Continue with that same procedure until you have copied and pasted all of these in the "Paste Full Path of File to Delete" box.

C:\WINDOWS\System32\windows2k6.exe

Note: It is possible that Killbox will tell you that one or more files do not exist. If that happens, just continue on with all the files. Be sure you don't miss any.

START – RUN – type in %temp% - OK - Edit – Select all – File – Delete

Delete everything in the C:\Windows\Temp folder or C:\WINNT\temp

Not all temp files will delete and that is normal
Empty the recycle bin
Boot

Download Superantispyware

http://www.superantispyware.com/superantis...efreevspro.html

Install it and double-click the icon on your desktop to run it.
· It will ask if you want to update the program definitions, click Yes.
· Under Configuration and Preferences, click the Preferences button.
· Click the Scanning Control tab.
· Under Scanner Options make sure the following are checked:
o Close browsers before scanning

o Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
o Please leave the others unchecked.
o Click the Close button to leave the control center screen.
· On the main screen, under Scan for Harmful Software click Scan your computer.
· On the left check C:\Fixed Drive.
· On the right, under Complete Scan, choose Perform Complete Scan.
· Click Next to start the scan. Please be patient while it scans your computer.
· After the scan is complete a summary box will appear. Click OK.
· Make sure everything in the white box has a check next to it, then click Next.
· It will quarantine what it found and if it asks if you want to reboot, click Yes.
· To retrieve the removal information for me please do the following:
o After reboot, double-click the SUPERAntispyware icon on your desktop.
o Click Preferences. Click the Statistics/Logs tab.
o Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
o It will open in your default text editor (such as Notepad/Wordpad).
o Please highlight everything in the notepad, then right-click and choose copy.
· Click close and close again to exit the program.
· Please paste that information here for me with a new HijackThis log.


Please give feedback on what worked/didn’t work and the current status of your system
