Hi there,

I am opening a new thread because the last hypinit thread was closed after 45 days on inactivity

I have the hypinit32.exe virus and I have used HJT to check these two files

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Prauge DVDRam Version 2.3A] C:\WINDOWS\system32\spfx\hypinit32.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\RunOnce: [*Prauge DVDRam Version 2.3A*] C:\WINDOWS\system32\spfx\hypinit32.exe


I have then tried to delete the c:\windows\system32\spfx directory through rmdir /s /q c:\windows\system32\spfx but I do not have admin rights and receive the following message

I don't have a windows xp CD/DVD and when I have rebooted my laptop in the past it was through Acer e-recovery management

c:\windows\system32\spfx\mstlsapi.dll - Access is denied.
c:\windows\system32\spfx\pfsbase32.dll - Access is denied.
The process cannot access the file because if is being used by another process.

I have also tried attrib -r -a -s -h c:\windows\system32\spfx\mstlsapi.dll and del mstlsapi.dll which again says Access is denied.

And attrib -r -a -s -h c:\windows\system32\spfx\hypinit32.exe which says Could Not Find

Many thanks to anyone who can help

Cheers

It appears I had a second virus called Backdoor.bot that I wasn't aware of

I then opened command prompt and ran dir/w/a on the c:\windows\system32\spfx directory and the following appeared

2 dirs . and ..
4 files mstlsapi.dll, pfsbase.dll, hypinit32.exe, and olcserv32.dll

Using the attrib command, these files are all hidden with the H prefix

What do I need to do next?

Cheers

Hi Derek,

When you mentioned the word recovery I decided to reboot using the Acer e-recovery tool that I have in the past, this is a bit of a hassle but at least I'd done it before

The virus has gone, I ran MalwareBytes and the following log appeared

I also ran in dos cd c:\windows\system32\spfx and the folder was not found

Many thanks for your help Derek I'll definitely come to this forum again if i have malware or virus concerns in the future
