    OK ive been told to come here from another forum, so i hope you can help. Heres my situation- I keep getting this Virus alert popping up saying bling.exe which is in C:windows\system32\bling.exe and is a Trojan horse IRC/Backdoor.SdBot.41.j type. Ive been searching around on the web and this seems quite a common problem but ive tried most of the ways to get rid of it but to no success. I have used AVG, spybot,adware and tried deleting manually to try and get rid of it but it just keeps coming back a few moments later. I have been told to post Hijackthis file report so i have below. Can anyone help out please? Max

    Hi pepcmax

    Welcome to TSG! :)

    Run Hijack This again and put a check by these. Close ALL windows except HijackThis and click "Fix checked"

    Restart to safe mode.

    How to start your computer in safe mode

    Because XP will not always show you hidden files and folders by default, Go to Start > Search and under "More advanced search options".
    Make sure there is a check by "Search System Folders" and "Search hidden files and folders" and "Search system subfolders"

    Next click on My Computer. Go to Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and "Hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"
    Click "Apply" then "OK"

    Now find and delete these files:

    C:\windows\system32\bling.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\serm32.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\smsc.exe

    Also in safe mode navigate to the C:\Windows\Temp folder. Open the Temp folder and go to Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

    Next navigate to the C:\Documents and Settings\Max Roberts\Local Settings\Temp folder. Open the Temp folder and go to Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

    Finally go to Control Panel > Internet Options. On the General tab under "Temporary Internet Files" Click "Delete Files". Put a check by "Delete Offline Content" and click OK.


    Empty the Recycle Bin


    Turn off System Restore:

    On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
    Click Properties.
    Click the System Restore tab.
    Check Turn off System Restore.
    Click Apply, and then click OK.
    Restart your computer.

    When you are sure you are clean turn it back on and create a restore point.


    Go here and do an online virus scan.

    Be sure and put a check in the box by "Auto Clean" before you do the scan. If it finds anything that it cannot clean have it delete it or make a note of the exact file name and file location so you can delete it yourself.


    IMPORTANT!: I highly recommend that you go to Windows update and install all "Critical Updates and Service Packs"ASAP!. Install everything but Service Pack 2. This will patch numerous security holes in IE and Windows. Many baddies get on your machine by taking advantage of these vulnerabilities. As your machine stands now it is wide open to attack from all sorts of nasties. You need to get these updates IMMEDITELY!

    Note: At this time I cannot and do not recommend that you install Service Pack 2. See here for more info:
