note:::: we already scanned the pc and removed the files and the virus and the last option we made is formatted the hdd and all the pc, but when it connects to the internet and to the server and run some application programs it replicate itself, the virus infects also most of the executables program or applications especially the internet...registry has been removed also and checked but sometimes the instruction on the antivirus are not 100% guaranteed and sometimes the key and values in registry are not present...so please advice. thanks in advance for the inputs and possible removal....

more infos..

W32/Mediasups is a virus. The virus will infect Windows systems and spreads by infecting executable files.

Upon execution, the virus creates wowexec.tmp, MediaSups.exe (regedit.com,cmd.com,net.com) and (RANDOM 8 CHARACTERS).sys in the %User Profile%\Local Settings\Temp folder.

The virus modifies registry at the following locations;

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MediaDrver
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\Root\LEGACY_MEDIADRVER
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\Root\LEGACY_MEDIADRVER\0000

It also attempts to spread by infecting executable files on the compromised computer.

The virus creates a service with the following characteristics to execute the (RANDOM 8 CHARACTERS).sys file.
Service Name: MediaDrver
Display Name: MicroSoft Media Services

It aslo attempts to execute the file wowexec.tmp. This file triggers Microsoft's Dr.Watson program and crashes.

It may open up a connection to a remote server and download additional files.
The virus may also spread through network shares.
This virus first appeared on December 28, 2006.

Please read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". You may have performed some of these steps already. In step #9 there are instructions for downloading HijackThis and creating a log. (This is a self-extracting version which will automatically install HJT in the proper location.)

When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

After posting a log you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

Quietman7, Thank you for your immediate responsed, I did scanned the pc with many antispywares & malwares and different antivirus software, but it didn't eliminate the problem, it just detecting but still replicating. But i will try your suggestion regarding scanning the pc with the HIJACKTHIS sofware. Thanks man! i really appreciated it.
