    Cool.exe has been on my system for about a week or so, and I have run numerous scans, but have not been able to get rid of it. Ewido detected (and deleted) it, but after a short while, a small message box opens up and disappears in a flash, and that's when the process cool.exe starts running again.

    Another problem is that the Temp folder in the WINNT folder keeps generating win??.tmp.exe files (even after all of them are deleted) that are trying to access the internet. Where do they come from?

    This is my hijackthis log, after deleting cool.exe with ewido and just after it started itself again, and also after deleting all those .tmp.exe files.

    Double-click on Killbox.exe to run it. Now put a tick by Delete on
    Reboot. In the "Full Path of File to Delete" box, copy and paste each
    of the following lines one at a time then click on the button that has
    the red circle with the X in the middle after you enter each file.
    It will ask for confimation to delete the file on next reboot. Click
    Yes. It will then ask if you want to reboot now. Click No. Continue
    with that same procedure until you have copied and pasted all of
    these in the "Paste Full Path of File to Delete" box.Then click yes
    to reboot after you entered the last one.


    Note: It is possible that Killbox will tell you that one or more files do not
    exist. If that happens, just continue on with all the files. Be sure you
    don't miss any.


    C:\WINNT\system32\cool.exe



    Run Ewido!

    # IMPORTANT: Do not open any other windows or programs while Ewido is scanning as it may interfere with the scanning process:
    # Launch Ewido Anti-spyware by double-clicking the icon on your desktop.
    # Select the "Scanner" icon at the top and then the "Scan" tab then click on "Complete System Scan".
    # Ewido will now begin the scanning process. Be patient this may take a little time.
    Once the scan is complete do the following:
    # If you have any infections you will prompted, then select "Apply all actions"
    # Next select the "Reports" icon at the top.
    # Select the "Save report as" button in the lower left hand of the screen and save it to a text file on your system (make sure to remember where you saved that file, this is important).
    # Close Ewido and reboot your system back into Normal Mode.



    reboot to normal mode and run a few online scans!


    Make sure your ActiveX controls are set as follows:

    Go to Internet Options - Security - Internet, press 'default level', then OK.
    Now press "Custom Level."

    In the ActiveX section, set the first two options (Download signed and
    unsigned ActiveX controls) to 'prompt', and 'Initialize and Script ActiveX
    controls not marked as safe" to 'disable'.


    Active X settings

    http://www.compu-docs.com/activex.htm



    Run ActiveScan online virus scan here

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

    When the scan is finished, anything that it cannot clean have it delete it.
    Make a note of the file location of anything that cannot be deleted so you
    can delete it yourself.
    - Save the results from the scan!



    post another hijack this log, the ewido and active scan logs

    Thanks a lot for the quick reply.. unfortunately I have just run ActiveScan and cool.exe is still there, along with all those (ever increasing) .tmp.exe files. And apparently I also have a ton of other malware on my computer. I have not deleted anything from the ActiveScan results yet, should I just go the locations from the report and remove every file in there?

    do a ctr/alt/del and in taskmanager stop these processes if running.


    cool.exe


    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 rename this file to cool.old by right clicking it and choose rename, then right click it and delete it!


    C:\WINNT\system32\cool.exe



    Double-click on Killbox.exe to run it. Now put a tick by Delete on
    Reboot. In the "Full Path of File to Delete" box, copy and paste each
    of the following lines one at a time then click on the button that has
    the red circle with the X in the middle after you enter each file.
    It will ask for confimation to delete the file on next reboot. Click
    Yes. It will then ask if you want to reboot now. Click No. Continue
    with that same procedure until you have copied and pasted all of
    these in the "Paste Full Path of File to Delete" box.Then click yes
    to reboot after you entered the last one.


    Note: It is possible that Killbox will tell you that one or more files do not
    exist. If that happens, just continue on with all the files. Be sure you
    don't miss any.

    clean log,

    Go here and delete this folder! C:\!KillBox



    * 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. Click on the "Delete Cookies" button to clear
    the cookies.



    You should now turn off system restore to flush out the bad restore points and
    then re-enable it and make a new clean restore point.

    Here's some free tools to keep you from getting infected in the future.


    To stop reinfection get spywareblaster from


    http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/downloads.html


    get the hosts file from here.Unzip it to a folder!



    http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm


    put it into : or click the mvps bat and it should do it for you!


    Windows XP = C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
    Windows 2K = C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
    Win 98\ME = C:\WINDOWS



    ie-spyad.Puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected

    when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all.

    http://www.spywarewarrior.com/uiuc/resource.htm


    Arovax shield: stop your computer from being hijacked!

    http://www.arovaxshield.com/


    Use spybot's immunize button and use spywareblaster' enable
    protection once you update it. you can put spybot's hosts file into
    your own and lock it.



    I would also suggest switching to Mozilla's firefox browser, it's safer, has
    a built in pop up blocker, blocks cookies and adds. Mozilla Thunderbird is also a good
    e-mail client.

    http://www.mozilla.org/


    Another good and free browser is Opera!
