Trojan horse taken my rights and registry, can't do anything

Post by Sophia on Tue Jul 20, 2010 3:40 am

Somehow I acquired a trojan horse. I have McAfee and AVG. Ran both and got 3 trojans:
program files\shared\lib.dll, temp\kYFZYrwbcT.exe, temporary internet files\content.IE5\5VXVWUTH\Setup.exe

Now I cannot execute any programs nor get onto the internet. I also cannot run the task manager. I am stuck and just can't function. I WILL NOT CONSIDER re-formatting my hard drive. I am communicating from another laptop I have. I have malware but I am not allowed to run it. Apparantly I am no longer the administrator. I even tried to download to a flash drive and install from there but it won't let me install or copy anything.

  • Please do not ask for help elsewhere (in this site or other sites). Doing so can result in system changes, which may not show up in the logs you post.
  • If you have already asked for help somewhere, please post the link to the topic you were helped.

Post by Sophia on Tue Jul 20, 2010 12:29 pm

Maybe you're too geeky to help me. Would you please re-read my post. I can't get on the internet. I can't copy/paste or download anything executable even from a cd or flash drive. I can get into some apps because I have a doc on my desktop for instance. I can't get into the app by clicking on the icon. My rights have been denied or the file may be in use..., the file format may not be supported...or the file may be corrupt. I have spent hours on this researching and trying things, I was at one point able to restore my computer to an earlier point but it did not rectify the problem. This is my last resort short of taking it somewhere and I am hours away from that option.

I have gotten the combofix.exe onto the sad laptop. I have tried to run it several ways, run as..., start... etc. but it fails because it keeps popping open the "OPEN WITH..." menu. I am still stuck, I will check back later to see if anyone can help with this problem. I spent a whole day yesterday on the sad laptop so I will check back periodically for something to try. Thank you.

I tried to run combofix and it says avg and mcafee are still running, i cant close them, so I went ahead and ran. After hours of "scanning for infected files" msg., it doesn't do anything or give me any more messages.

In order for this to get removed, it is important to take steps necessary to get the tools needed to disinfect the computer.

Please make this CD, so we can go in to Recovery Mode and disinfect the computer.

Download the OTLPE Network REATOGO Windows Recovery Environment.
  • Place a blank CD-R disc in to your CD burning drive.
  • Download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and double-click on it to burn to a CD using ISO Burner.
  • Reboot your system using the boot CD you just created.

    Note : If you do not know how to set your computer to boot from CD follow the steps [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
  • Your system should now display a REATOGO-X-PE desktop.
  • Double-click on the OTLPE icon.
  • When asked "Do you wish to load the remote registry", select Yes
  • When asked "Do you wish to load remote user profile(s) for scanning", select Yes
  • Ensure the box "Automatically Load All Remaining Users" is checked and press OK
  • OTL should now start. Change the following settings
    • Change Drivers to Non-Microsoft
    • Press Run Scan to start the scan.
    • When finished, the file will be saved in drive C:\_OTL\MovedFiles
    • Copy this file to your USB drive if you do not have internet connection on this system
    • Please post the contents of the OTL.txt file in your reply.

Okay, I was able to run combo fix and it appears my computer is all right. I just kept trying to run it and then check to see if I could run task manager. I finally could so I ran combo fix again and I got the log. Do I need to do anything else (besides a major backup Smile )? Thank you so much for your help.

Oh by the way, I was trying to do the things you told me to but I didn't have any cd's so I tried with my flash drive. In the interim I did the above. Byte by byte, I guess combo fix beat it down. I didn't wan't you to think I wasn't following directions and wasting your intelligent advice. Again, thank you so much and also for having this site. I will donate as soon as I can and save this site to my favorites and tell my friends about it!

Re: Trojan horse taken my rights and registry, can't do anything

Post by Dr Jay on Wed Jul 21, 2010 3:38 am

Most of the time, when you have originally detected the malware issue, it means the computer is infected by malware of some sort. Antivirus scanners may not show a sign of the malware still being there, which could be a sign of a rootkit.

Whenever rootkit scanners, and antivirus software scan for the rootkit, it gets as close to the system kernel as possible. If the rootkit is beyond that point, it will not be detected.

So, the idea is, is when you post to a forum that you need help removing malware, it is best to stay with the helper, to ensure your computer is clean. However, it is up to you to continue or not.

To uninstall ComboFix

  • Click the Start button. Click Run. For Vista: type in Run in the Start search, and click on Run in the results pane.
  • In the field, type in ComboFix /uninstall



(Note: Make sure there's a space between the word ComboFix and the forward-slash.)

  • Then, press Enter, or click OK.
  • This will uninstall ComboFix, delete its folders and files, hides System files and folders, and resets System Restore.

I ran the uninstall command as you directed and received the info box that says "combofix is uninstalled" and clicked the "OK" button.

The path of the MBRcheck is c:\documents and settings\owner\desktop
but I don't see any icon or description of such. It's just that it is still open so I can see the path of the file.

I am in MN, USA so I don't know what the time difference is where you are helping from. I will let you know when I return.

It appears all is well. Is there anything else I need to do?

Your logs appear to be clean. If there are no more issues, then we shall clean up!

Clean up System Restore

Now, to get you off to a clean start, we will be creating a new Restore Point, then clearing the old ones to make sure you do not get reinfected, in case you need to "restore back."
  • Select Start > All Programs > Accessories > System tools > System Restore.
  • On the dialogue box that appears select Create a Restore Point
  • Click NEXT
  • Enter a name e.g. Clean
  • Click CREATE

You now have a clean restore point, to get rid of the bad ones:
  • Select Start > All Programs > Accessories > System tools > Disk Cleanup.
  • In the Drop down box that appears select your main drive e.g. C
  • Click OK
  • The System will do some calculation and the display a dialogue box with TABS
  • Select the More Options Tab.
  • At the bottom will be a system restore box with a CLEANUP button click this
  • Accept the Warning and select OK again, the program will close and you are done


Run OTC to remove our tools

To remove all of the tools we used and the files and folders they created, please do the following:
Please download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] by OldTimer:
  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click OTC.exe.
  • Click the CleanUp! button.
  • If you are prompted to Reboot during the cleanup, select Yes.
  • The tool will delete itself once it finishes.

Note: If any tool, file or folder (belonging to the program we have used) hasn't been deleted, please delete it manually.

Purge old temporary files

Please download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] to your desktop
  • Please double-click TFC.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
  • It will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.
  • Click the Start
    button to begin the process. Depending on how often you clean temp
    files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute
    or two. Let it run uninterrupted to completion.
  • Once it's finished it should reboot your machine. If it does not, please manually reboot the machine yourself to ensure a complete clean.


Security Check

Please download Security Check by screen317 from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] or [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click SecurityCheck.exe and 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.


Tell me in your next reply, if you have completed these tasks:
  • Cleaned System Restore
  • Ran OTC
  • Ran TFC
  • Ran Security Check

Also, let me know how your computer is running, and don't forget to post the contents of the Security Check log.
