First off let me say I'm an amateur but usually manage through doing things myself. I ran into a nasty virus that had me going through a lot of trouble to remove, I think I have it al cleared up but would greatly appreciate someone looking at my HJT log to see if there is anything else I need to do.

I found the virus, and AVG took care it of ... almost ... I was still left with a folder and a "fivemapiace.exe" that I knew shouldn't be there. But getting rid of it was a tough process. Tried deleting it, wiping it, came back. Used Adaware and spybot SD and they wouldn't touch it, antivirus scanned it with AVG and kaspersky online but they said it was clean.

I used RegCleaner to take out anything that looked related ( as well as remnants of old spyware junk ) and was using the tea time feature of spybot to stop it from getting back in the registry.

"3/1/2007 12:32:11 PM Denied value "Delete Trust" (new data: "C:\DOCUME~1\JAMES~1.KRA\APPLIC~1\GREATU~1\fivemapiace.exe") added in System Startup user entry!" (many many many times)

The folder in qustion was originally C:\Documents and Settings\James.KRALTHAN\Application Data\greatuploadtype\ and it had 3 total files. 2 of which AVG toook care of, but fivemapiace.exe was still giving me trouble. Took several wipe attempts and some registry work to get it to stay gone.

At any rate it seems to be dealt with now. Here's my HJT log after rebooting and my system seems to be clear of the virus and "delete trust" issue.

Step 1

A Firewall is an essential part of computer security and you do not appear to have one running on your system. It is important that you have a firewall in addition to the Windows SP2 firewall. Do not attempt to run two software firewalls since like running two antivirus programs, they will possibly cause problems and conflict with each other. There are a few firewalls available for free that appear to be good and easy to use:Step 2

I noticed that you have some programs that need to be updated.

Your Java Runtime Environment is out of date.
Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system.
Please follow these steps to remove the older versions of Java Runtime Environment..
  • Close any programs you may have running, ESPECIALLY your web browser
  • Click Start > Control Panel.
  • Click Add/Remove Programs.
  • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove all versions of Java.
  • Reboot your computer after all Java components are removed.
Please download the latest Java Runtime Environment.
  • Scroll down to where it says Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6. The Java SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications.
  • Click the Download button to the right.
  • Check the box that says: Accept License Agreement.
  • The page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation with or without Multi-language and save to your desktop.
  • On your desktop, double-click on jre-6-windows-i586.exe to install the newest version.
After you have installed the Java software on your computer, you must restart your browser. You can verify that Java Runtime Environment (RTE) has been installed correctly by clicking on the Verify Installation button on the JAVA SOFTWARE MANUAL DOWNLOAD page.

Your "Adobe Reader" is out of date.
You may want to download the latest version, Adobe® Reader® 8.

You appear to have a program on your system called Logitech® Desktop Messenger. This is a background process that can automatically access the Internet without your knowledge or permission. Although it does provide updates for your Logitech products, the fact that it can access the Internet without your consent is potentially dangerous. It does download and update your Logitech products but this can be done manually by visiting the Logitech web site. My advice would be to uninstall this program (Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs) but this is entirely your decision. I suggest doing all updates yourself and removing this application!

Thanks for taking a look at my logs. I think I've got everything fixed now.

Firewall - my zone alarm free was messed up, didnt realize it wasnt starting with windows. Uninstalled it, downloaded it again, updated, and it is up and running now.

I have Java and Adobe up to date now. The previous HJT entries for those are gone, and have the newer versions in there. I wasnt sure if they needed to be taken out or not, left them for now.

AdAware has been on my computer for quite a while. Updated it, ran it, nothing serious there. Tracking cookies. Deleted them. Ran Spybot S&D, found nothing. Immunized to current database.

I downloaded Spyblaster, and Spygaurd. They are updated and running.

Downloaded and ran the AVG Antispyware. It checked over 500,000 objects. Found a couple tracking cookies. Deleted them.

Virus scanned my computer with my installed AVG Free, Trend micro online, and Kapersky online. No viruses.

I did some of the optional fixes you listed. Renamed and disabled the "messenger" folder. I left alot of them in, boot time doesnt affect me much since my computer tends to stay on for weeks at a time or longer with reliable stability.

Getright I think I want to keep, from what I can tell there isnt spyware in the version I have, and I find it pretty useful. I uninstalled the logitech desktop messenger.

I ran the ATF cleaner. I am curious 2 things in my HTJ log though.

O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {e2e2dd38-d088-4134-82b7-f2ba38496583} - %windir%\Network Diagnostic\xpnetdiag.exe (file missing)

Everything else I think is normal-ish. Here's my current log. If there is anything else I should fix let me know, and if not Thank You very much for your help!

I know I left alot of your optional fixes in, but this computer is used for quite a bit of audio and video, gaming, web browsing, and instant messaging with video and voice. I want it to do all of those on the fly, and with a 3.2 gig P4 HT processor and 2 gig of RAM I dont usually have problems with my system running out of resources.

It seems I was sucessful in getting rid of the "Delete Trust" and "Downloader Obfuskated" issues that brought me here worried to begin with. Since Google came up empty when I was trying to search for a soluton, I figured I was out of my league. But my computer should be safer now with your help.

:thumbsup:

EDITED - You'll have to forgive some typos, seems my wireless keyboard isn't playing nice today.

I ran the ATF cleaner. I am curious 2 things in my HTJ log though.

O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {e2e2dd38-d088-4134-82b7-f2ba38496583} - %windir%\Network Diagnostic\xpnetdiag.exe (file missing)

These two entries pertain to the Network Diagnostics for Windows XP. For more information, see Network Diagnostics for Windows XP is available to help identify and fix network connection problems.

EDITED - You'll have to forgive some typos, seems my wireless keyboard isn't playing nice today.

The decision to leave the Optional Fixes on your computer is yours. I just furnished the information so you can decide. You did a good job of getting rid of "Delete Trust" and "Downloader Obfuskated".

By the way, typos don't count against you. Keyboards have a habit of doing that.

Your log appears to be clean. Please advise me of any problems you still have.

Please take the time to read my All Clean Post. .
Please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  • Disable and Enable System Restore. After cleaning, you will need to disable the System Restore function For Windows XP.
    Files placed in the System volume information folder are source files for the System Restore function that is available in Windows XP operating system. Files that were healed were moved in their original INFECTED state into this folder and it is necessary to DELETE them by following these steps:
    • Close all open programs. Then right-click My Computer on the Windows desktop
    • Click on Properties.
    • Click on the System Restore tab.
    • Check Turn off System Restore on all drives.
    • Restart the system.
    • Enable System Restore by going through the first four steps again and uncheck the item mentioned in Step D.
    • You can find instructions on how to disable and enable system restore in the Windows XP System Restore Guide.
  • Make your Internet Explorer more secure: This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    • From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    • Click once on the Security tab
    • Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    • Click once on the Custom Level button.
      • Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
      • Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
      • Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
      • Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
      • Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
      • Change the Navigate sub frames across different domains to Prompt
    • When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
    • If it asks you if you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
    • Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
  • Use IE-SPYAD: Install IE SPYAD. Add another level of protection to your Internet Explorer browser by blocking certain sites that are known to contain malware. IE SPYAD puts several thousand sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected when you visit innocent looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all. If you happen on a site within its list, they can't hijack you or install anything. Program is free and is updated about once a month. Please follow readme instructions for install; it is a little different. Single user PC use IE Spyad1. Multi user XP PC use IE Spyad2.
  • Use An Antivirus Software and Keep It Updated: - It is imperative that you update your antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software, then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

  • Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently: It is important that you visit Microsoft Windows Update regularly. This will ensure your computer has the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.
  • You should scan your computer with Spybot S&D on a regular basis just as you would an anti- virus software. A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

  • Use the hosts file: Every version of windows has a hosts file as part of them. In a very basic sense, they are used to locate web pages. We can customize a hosts file so that it blocks certain web pages. However, it can slow down certain computers. This is why using a hosts file is optional. Download mvps hosts file Make sure you read the instructions on how to install the hosts file. There is a good tutorial HERE If you decide to download the hosts file, the slowdown problems can usually be avoided by following these steps:
    • Click the start button on the task bar at the bottom of your screen
    • Click run
    • In the dialog box, type services.msc
    • hit enter, then locate dns client
    • Highlight it, then doubleclick it.
    • On the dropdown box, change the setting from automatic to manual.
    • Click OK.
  • Use an alternative instant messenger program:.Trillian and Miranda IM These are Malware free Instant Messenger programs which allow you to connect to multiple IM services in one program! (AOL, Yahoo, ICQ, IRC, MSN)
  • Please read Tony Klein's excellent article: How I got Infected in the First Place
  • Please read Understanding Spyware, Browser Hijackers, and Dialers
  • Please read Simple and easy ways to keep your computer safe and secure on the Internet.
  • If you are using Internet Explorer, please consider using an alternate browser: Mozilla's Firefox browser is fantastic; it is much more secure than Internet Explorer, immune to almost all known browser hijackers, and also has the best built in popup blocker (as an added benefit!) that I have ever seen.
    Another good browser is Opera . Opera 9 comes loaded with the tools to keep you productive and safe. Try it today, it's absolutely free. Some of the Opera features are: Customization, BitTorrent, Content blocker, Add your favorite search engines, Thumbnail preview of tabs, Widgets, Transfer manager, Tabbed browsing, Password manager, Sessions (You can save a collection of open tabs as a session, for later retrieval, or start with the pages you had open when Opera was last closed.), Keyboard Shortcuts, Cookie control, a multitude of languages, Validate code, Toggle graphics and style sheets, and Special features such as Full-screen mode, Kiosk mode.
  • Update all these programs regularly: Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
  • If your computer was infected by a website, a program, IM, MSN, or p2p, check this site because it is Time To Fight Back.
Follow these steps and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.
Good luck!
