Hey everyone, Buddy215 suggested I'd post a HJT log here. So here it goes, also lemme repost the story.

Hey Everybody, I'm pretty good about keeping my system safe and luckily no major Viruses yet. Sadly my friend wasn't so lucky... over the past week her avast was popping up with a message about finding "W32:Agent-ISI", she updated her definitions and ran a few scans. At the end it promted about it being successfully removed. Now her computer seems to be worse, everytime she runs Internet Exlorer now, her system will lockup causing her to having to restart, mouse is still moveable but nothing is clickable. I went through all the processes with her and she seems to have a crapload of Norton processes, even though norton is no longer installed and shes running avast. She also has a process(isafe.exe) that traces to "etrust antivirus". Even though no trace of it installed. Another process(vetmsg.exe) traces to "CA Antivirus", yet again she does'nt have it installed. Although what worries me is the 10 Norton related processes that run in the background. Any help would be greatly appreciated, and thanks in advance.


I also followed buddy215's advice about using the norton uninstaller... So the following log is after running the Norton Uninstaller. Again thanks for everything and any help is greatly appreciated.

Go to start > controlpanel > software > add/remove programs and uninstall next if present:

Ipwindows / ipwins
Yazzle by Oin
YazzleActiveX By OIN
Purityscan by Oin
MediaTickets by OIN
Snowballwars by Oin
Cowabanga by OIN
or anything similar with Oin in it.

If OIN not listed, download and run this uninstaller.

Reboot when done! Really important!

Download Combofix to your desktop.
Doubleclick combofix.exe
Follow the prompts.
Don't click on the window while the fix is running, because that will cause your system to hang.

When finished and after reboot (in case it asks to reboot), it should open a log, combofix.txt.
Post this log in your next reply together with a new hijackthislog.
Do NOT post the ComboFix-quarantined-files.txt - unless I ask you to.

Hey Didom, thanks for the reply, but we ran into a bit of a problem last night following your advice. We checked the add/remove programs and there was nothing matching your criteria there. So we used the OiUnintaller.exe you linked us. It seemed to work perfectly, it said "Outerinfo was uninstalled successfully", but when we restarted we got a BSOD(Blue Screen of Death) stating that "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME". We can't seem to load XP in anyway, not even safe mode. Any Idea?

1. Boot from your Windows XP CD. You might need to change the settings at the system's BIOS. Most modern BIOS nowadays support a "boot menu", where you can specify which device to boot from without changing the CMOS settings. It is usually tied to the F9 or F10 keypress before the machine boots.

2. I do not know if you have done a fresh Windows XP installation before, but if you haven't, what happens now is that the Windows XP installer will load the various drivers and system files in order for the installer to fully run. Initially it will ask you to press F6 if you need to install 3rd party hard disk drivers and F2 to run automated recovery. Ignore those and wait till you reach this screen:

3. Notice the second option: "To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R." Do what it says; press R.

4. You will be asked to press Enter if you want to use a custom keyboard layout. Either wait for the 5 seconds to expire, or press Esc to get this following screen:

5. Normally you should only see one installation as in the screenshot, which is usually at C:\WINDOWS. Press 1 as in the screenshot to select that installation.

6. There is an Administrator account built-in in Windows XP and is usually transparent to the end user unless he/she activates it and uses it. By default there is no password for the Administrator; just press Enter. If you are unable to log in without a password, you should ask who has set the password before, or call your system service personnel.

7. Now, type the following command, fixboot, as in the screenshot. This will fix your corrupted boot sector on your hard disk.


8. Type exit and your system will reboot. Remove the installation disk and your system should boot as normal.

9. If your system still does not boot, you might want to try fixmbr instead of fixboot at item 7. If you have multiple operating systems installed in your hard disk, you will need to reconfigure them to appear as a choice in the boot menu again. You should only do this if fixboot really doesn't work.

10. If these steps still do not work for you, or if the problem returns time and again, you might have a failing hard disk, or you have a virus in your computer that is corrupting your boot sector. Either scenario would justify sending your system for service, especially if you'd like to avoid all the possible headaches and possible voiding of warranty associated with fixing it manually.

Hey, quick update... I've been working with my friend to get her pc back up and running. Sadly fixboot and fixmbr, didn't quite work. So I suggested that we run chkdsk /r and chkdsk /p followed by fixboot, and winxp loaded flawlessly. Next time I talk to her I will have her run the combofix and get that log posted.

Still with us?

If so, please start a new thread as I'm leaving for a vacation. Please include a link to this thread.
