..bump..

Hey guys. Im servicing a computer for a friend of mine, and it was filled with viruses, thats kinda beside the point. anyway I ran windows update, and the whole computer seems to run slower. 1) is this normal?

2) I have a problem with two trojan horses that I just cant seem to destroy. only Avast! Antivirus found it, but evrytime I go to remove it with that, it just leaves it there, and when I do it manually, (I believe the virus was Qoolaid) I get a message saying that windows is using the file. How do I destroy this file (theres two of em with the same trojan).

3) I get this hang on shutdown, its really wierd. I click shutdown, and it looks as if its shutting down, but then a message comes up saying something wont close. I click end task and it shuts down. I thought it was the anti virus, its uninstalled. Maybe my wireless adapter driver, but thats uninstalled too. I think this has to do with problem 2, but how do I fix this?

4) I took all the spyware out, but the computer seems to run quicker after all the virus and spyware removal :eek: . WHY? Is it the ad aware and spybot and spy sweeper backups? Help please!?!?!?!?! :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:

That vzpmzm.exe file is a virus, but I cant remove it. I downloaded AntiVirus&Trojan and removed that and a file named naip.exe. I restarted, then they were there again.

Ive run about 8 virus scans and 5 spyware scans!! What to do?

One thing I see that you need to check on is the Patch KB891711= C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\KB891711\KB891711.EXE
Was it downloaded prior to 4/12/05? If so it may be defective as MS admits that it was a bad patch for 95-ME. MS was to have corrected it on or about 4/12/05
Find it and determine it's dates. Don't do anything with it yet, just report on it's dates and an expert will advise on it.

This of course will have nothing to do with the virus etc problems but it could be some of the cause of the slow down.
Good luck.

well I just updated windows about 2 days ago. I am thinking about just having the person just buy a copy of windows 2000, and I will jsut install that. The viruses and spyware that wont come off are encypted into the system so they wont come off.

I, for one, have never seen a virus etc that the experts on this site couldn't get removed. Note I said "I". Anything these days is possible.
So just wait and continue to "bump" after a day or so if no help arrives.
If time is of the essence then your way maybe the best approach.
Good luck.

Oh and one other comment is that this may get better attention if in the "security" section on TSG. You can have it moved by clicking on the red
triangle next to a post # and make the request to a moderator.
Good luck.

Download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite http://www.ewido.net/en/download/
· Install ewido.
· During the installation, under "Additional Options" uncheck "Install background guard" and "Install scan via context menu".
· Launch ewido
· It will prompt you to update click the OK button and it will go to the main screen
· On the left side of the main screen click update
· Click on Start and let it update.
· DO NOT run a scan yet. You will do that later in safe mode.

Restart your computer into safe mode now. Perform the following steps in safe mode:


Run Ewido:
· Click on scanner
· Click Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
· During the scan it will prompt you to clean files, click OK
· When the scan is finished, look at the bottom of the screen and click the Save report button.
· Save the report to your desktop
This will take some time to run!
Post that log and a new HiJack log from normal mode
