Here is my problem.

I am running Windows XP Pro, and have encountered a headscratcher of a problem.

I tried to run MSCONFIG and the window for it popped open for a split second, then closed right away. Happens everytime now. Same thing for REGEDIT, it pops up, then disappears right away, I first noticed this yesterday.

Naturally this seemed suspicious, so today I ran Trend's Housecall online Virus Scan. Right away it found something called BKDR_CYBERSPY.D and Housecall deleted it, even though it said it was "uncleanable". I checked Trends info on this virus, and it had instructions on how to fix it. However, it invovles using REGEDIT, which I can't use.

The Trend fix also involves SYSEDIT, which does work, except the entries it says to look for aren't there. In particular this:

"Under the [boot] section, locate the line that begins with:
Shell=Explorer.exe
From the same line, delete the malware path and filename:
%System%\mswincfg32.exe"

At this point, I stated checking some boards like this one looking for info/help. I found some similar descriptions of problems with REGEDIT not staying open (see: http://miataru.computing.net/securi.../forum/5856.htm) and tried using HijackThis to see what was going on. And I tried the recommended action of using an EXE File Association Fix (from www.dougknox.com, NOTE: It too opened a Yes/No confirm operation window, but closed almost immediately, however I fought with it for a while, and was eventually fast enought to click Yes before it closed, and it did it's thing) and then tried HJT again.

In both attempts, I found no entries matching the problem items listed in the post, or on Trends info page.

So, just for kicks I ran Housecall again, and immediately got a WORM_SPYBOT.GEN in the registry scan. No further info was available regarding this, but Housecall said it removed/fixed it. However, everytime I run a new scan, the same worm is found, but the BKDR_SPY.D is no longer there, or so it seems.

So now I dont know what to do.

I really hope there is someone around who can help me work this thing out. I will copy my most recent HijackThis log below. Even if you can't help me, thanks for reading this far. Any effort to fix this is greatly appreciated.

Hi ETAF Ranger, and welcome to TSG.. :)

Please run a new HJT! log, close all browser windows, check to fix the following entries, then click the Fix checked button..

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [UpdReg] C:\WINDOWS\UpdReg.EXE

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" -atboottime

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Winsock2 driver] WINLODR.SCR

O4 - HKCU\..\RunOnce: [Winsock2 driver] WINLODR.SCR

O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\OSA.EXE


Then if you could reboot into safe mode and delete the following bolded file..

C:\WINDOWS\System32\WINLODR.SCR

Next, reboot back into normal mode, rerun trend micro' online scan, then finally post a new HJT log, to check it over. (y)

Cheers

Liam

When I restarted in Safe Mode, I was given the option of logining in as my usual account (which i thought was the Admin login), or to use a previously unseen Administrator account. I used the Amin login.

Once in Safe Mode, I could not find the WINLODR.SCR file in teh location you listed, so I searched for it. I found a file called WINLODR.SCR.xxxxxxxxx.PF (xxxxx's represent various numbers which I did not write down) and it was found at C:\Windows\Prefetch\WINLODR.SCR.xxxxxxxxxxxx.PF

Well, even though I was unsure about it, I deleted it, and restarted. The above HJT log is the result.

And after running HJT, I tried MSCONFIG, and it still doesnt work.

you have still got winlodr running

first open taskmanager by right clicking on taskbar & then stop the winlodr process then
run hijackthis, tick all below, doublecheck to make sure you haven't missed any, close all browser windows & press fix checked

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Winsock2 driver] WINLODR.SCR

O4 - HKCU\..\RunOnce: [Winsock2 driver] WINLODR.SCR

then open windows explorer ..tools/folder options/view and make sure show hidden files & folders is ticked and hide protected operating system files is UNTICKED

then navigate to & delete the C:\WINDOWS\System32\WINLODR.SCR

Just forgot to mention in my reply to Liam's instructions, that Housecall found the same Reg virus.

Derek,

I cannot access Task Manager. As it turns out, it is behaving the same as MSCONFIG and REGEDIT. It pops up for a split second and then closes right away.

But at least I finally located the WINLODR.SCR file. But of course i cant get rid of it because it is in use.

Ranger.

PS it seems that this mess has my internet and some windows operations running rather slowly.

Let's see if this will clean it up a little, at least so we can open msconfig, regedit, and so on.

Download Spybot - Search & Destroy (if you haven't got the program installed already)

After installing, first press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and install all updates.

Next, close all Internet Explorer windows, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove/fix all it finds that are in RED

Reboot

Last, run HJT again and post your log again to see if anything was missed.

Thanks

reboot into safe mode & delete now

it won't be running in safe mode

if that doesn't work then the only alternative is to download & run process explorer from http://www.sysinternals.com/ which will allow you to stop the winlodr running so it can be deleted

I ran S&D, found typical garbage, cleaned it out.

Got WINLODR.SCR un-hidden, wentto Safe Mode, and deleted it.
Rebooted. Ran Housecall, and it came up clean.

And now everything seems to be back to normal.

Thanks guys.

I now know where to come to for help when i'm in over my head.

Cheers.

Ranger.

PS, I am posting one last HJT log for good measure.
