Hello,

This is the third thread I start for the same reason, the good thing is that I have been making more progress with each thread. The bad thing is that my internet connection is not working so I can only reply after 24 hours. Anyway:

I have been infected with a virus from my USB stick (I know this cause I read similar threads of other people and they had figured that out).

The virus places some seemingly random named files on the "c:\" folder (for example "mtlhieej.cmd", "o.exe" and various others that I can't remember) and an "autorun.inf" file on the "c:\" folder that launches those files whenever I enter "c:\" (it does all that not only for my HDD but also for the flash drive). It also places a file called (at least in my case) "kavo.exe" (I read some other thread which the corresponding file was named "kxvo.exe") in c:\windows\system32 folder and a registry key to load it on boot. It could be using/placing/altering other files that I'm not aware of.

The infection also disables me from being able to view hidden files, by not allowing me to change that setting in the control panel (or in the registry, same), and all the above files are hidden (therefore not viewable, unless from cmd: dir /A). Also my Antivirus does not detect any of them and that seems pretty strange.

Link to a similar case: http://forums.techguy.org/malware-r...700376-solved-kxvo-exe-application-error.html

I read a quite big tutorial on HiJackThis so that I could understand it so if you think I should fix anything, please mention the reason you think so. I've also fixed the "O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [kava] C:\WINDOWS\system32\kavo.exe", but I can't find anything else suspicious!

After reading similar threads I concluded that I should probably also get ComboFix, but their d/l links are down, or are no longer valid (all three of them!).

1) Now what do you think I should do next?
2) How is it possible that my AV does not detect and delete the virus files (Couldn't update it for some time, but I did it now and it said no more updates available)? Could it be because they are hidden (that seems like a pretty lame excuse..)? OR could it be that the virus interferes with the AV or its update process?

Thanks a lot!

***
EDIT: OK, the link for downloading ComboFix is now working, so I got that program as well, if you need me to run any scans from there.

Please visit this webpage for instructions for downloading and running ComboFix.

Post the log from ComboFix when you've accomplished that, along with a new HijackThis log.

Well, never mind, I had to reformat and install XP cause I wanted to be sure that I had removed everything and I was getting no answers in this thread anyway :-/.
Norton antivirus has been naming this threat "Bloodhound.packed.jmp" and "W32.Gammima.ag". I just want to ask you, (copied from above) how is it possible that my AV does not detect and delete the virus files (Couldn't update it for some time, but I did it now and it said no more updates available)? Could it be because they are hidden (that seems like a pretty lame excuse..)? OR could it be that the virus interferes with the AV or its update process?

If I understand correctly your Norton will not update after doing a full format and reload?

What version is it? Are you sure it's not past it's end-of-life?

No, norton is working fine after the format, it was before the format that it couldn't heal my PC from that virus (which it named "Bloodhound.packed.jmp" and "W32.Gammima.ag" at various times. For example it said that "norton has blocked bloodhound.packed.jmp" or "norton has detected W32.gammima.ag"). It was version 2007 and fully updated. I just wanted to ask, how was it possible that it did not detect the files that were infected with that/these virus/es. Could it be that the virus was disabling me from viewing hidden files? But isn't the AV supposed to scan these files as well??

AV will scan hidden files as well. I'm not sure why it would not heal the PC.

Well, I think I'm ok now, since I fdisked my PCs, and don't have any problem after that.

Thanks
