Hi, Would like to have you post a log from HijackThis, a program (very tiny) that we use to see what problems exist.

There are directions here to do it: There are .zip form and .exe form, take your pick.

Download it here:

http://radiosplace.com/

Or here.


It's a direct download so be ready with the folder for it.

Basically, you create a new folder, the desktop is OK provided you make a folder, name it something like HJT, and download TO that folder, run hijackthis.exe from there. If there are users of the computer who might start HJT and use it, hide the program in a folder elsewhere!

First open a reply here in your thread to have it ready.
Run Hijackthis.exe, and
Select the "Scan and save a log" button...

When it is done scanning> the Save box will become available, save the log as hijackthis.txt which will open with Notepad. Hit the EDIT> Select All then the EDIT>Copy button at the top of your log, Go back to TSG, and click once in the blank reply space, then go to the top of your browser window and select EDIT>Paste.
Please do NOT use HJT yourself to remove anything, most of what it shows is good and needed by the system. Someone will be able to help you shortly.

Hi,
The only thing I can see to remove is this:
Put checkmark next to it in your next scan with Hijackthis, then click "Fix checked":


O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AlcxMonitor] ALCXMNTR.EXE


flrman1 said:
Because XP will not always show you hidden files and folders by default, Go to Start > Search>Files and Folders>> 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"

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.

Go to Start > Run and type %temp% in the Run box, and OK. The Temp folder will open. Click Edit > Select All then File > 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.
Navigate using Windows Explorer to the Windows folder> over on the right side, see if this is part of the contents of Windows, delete it if found:


C:\WINDOWS\ALCXMNTR.EXE <this file at end of line.

Not unusual to not find it, but look well.

Restart, run a full scan with AdAware SE and reboot, then a scan with SpyBot. Make sure you check for detection updates with each program before you scan. Let AdAware remove all it finds, and let Spybot remove all it finds in RED.

Only thing I would advise is an online scan, there are two we reccommend:

http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/com/activescan_principal.htm

http://housecall.antivirus.com/housecall/start_corp.asp

If you have never used them, both of those scans will take a while to get the Active X controls loaded and then scan all files....I would estimate a good 2 hours and have seen it take quite a lot longer. Not much you can do...

Set the settings to scan all files, Scan the whole computer, all hard drives...whatever each has. AUTOCLEAN should be checked, too. You don't get to scan unless you let the ActiveX control load, that is what gets tiring, but it should finish> it does seem to stop but you should wait and scan!
Panda will let you save a Report as Activescan.txt when it finishes, which you should post here in your next reply. Housecall only shows you what it found, cleaned, could not fix, or deleted....so, do Panda first and Housecall next to keep the manual filename recording to a minimum, but we should have you post the filenames it found infected, the locations of files, and what the exact trojan name is for each.
