I got this virus through MSN. Someone clicked the link in the message and headaches ever since. IT has changed the HOSTS file everytime a new boot is started. It also has changed the IE homepage. I can only run HJT in safe mode, as the coimputer will not run it in normal. All virus protection works. So far the only virus is "Virus in Hosts". I am running Windows XP SP2

Attached is the HJT Logfile

Thanks for the help

Craig

Hi, rescue21 :)

Please follow these instructions to edit your registry:

First perform a Full Backup of the Registry:

  • Go to Start->Run, Type Regedit.exe and click Ok.
  • The Registry Editor will be displayed.
  • Click on My Computer in the Editor to highlight it.
  • Select Registry (File) from the Menu, then Export
  • Name the export Backup
  • Save it on C:\

You now have a backup of your registry on C:\ (C:\Backup.reg).

Download the enclosed file. Save and extract its contents to the desktop. It is a folder containing a Registry Entries file, Regfix.reg . Don't do anything with it yet. We will run it shortly.

Please re-open HiJackThis and scan. Check the boxes next to all the entries listed below.

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://graphicpipeline.com/upload.php
F3 - REG:win.ini: load=C:\WINDOWS\system32\rwzwifklml\winlogon.exe
F3 - REG:win.ini: run=C:\WINDOWS\system32\rwzwifklml\winlogon.exe

Now close all windows and browsers, other than HiJackThis, then click Fix Checked.

Close Hijackthis.

Double click on the Regfix.reg file and select Yes when prompted to merge it into the registry.

Using Windows Explorer (to get there right-click your Start button and go to "Explore"), please delete these folders (if present):

C:\WINDOWS\system32\rwzwifklml

Restart the computer.

Let me know if you are able to boot in Normal mode.

Hi, rescue21 :)

Skip regfix.reg.

After deleting the C:\WINDOWS\system32\rwzwifklml folder and fixing the lines in HJT, can you boot in Normal Mode?

Skipped the regfix. Finally found the folder as it was a hidden folder. Reboot carried out. Able to open normally. I rechecked the HOSTS file and have found there are no added entries after the reboot.. It appears that it might be fixed.

Now I just have to fix everyone else computer I screwed up.

Thanks

Hi, rescue21. :)

Congratulations.


The following is a list of tools and utilities that I like to suggest to people. This list is full of great tools and utilities to help you understand how you got infected and how to keep from getting infected again.
  1. Spybot Search & Destroy - Uber powerful tool which can search and annhilate nasties that make it onto your system. Now with an Immunize section that will help prevent future infections.
  2. AdAware - Another very powerful tool which searches and kills nasties that infect your system. AdAware and Spybot Search & Destroy compliment each other very well.
  3. SpywareBlaster - Great prevention tool to keep nasties from installing on your system.
  4. SpywareGuard - Works as a Spyware "Shield" to protect your computer from getting malware in the first place.
  5. 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.
  6. CleanUP! - Cleans temporary files from IE and Windows, empties the recycle bin and more. Great tool to help speed up your computer and knock out those nasties that like to reside in the temp folders.
  7. Windows Updates - It is very important to make sure that both Internet Explorer and Windows are kept current with the latest critical security patches from Microsoft. To do this just start Internet Explorer and select Tools > Windows Update, and follow the online instructions from there.
  8. Google Toolbar - Free google toolbar that allows you to use the powerful Google search engine from the bar, but also blocks pop up windows.
  9. Trillian or Miranda-IM - These are Malware free Instant Messenger programs which allow you to connect to multiple IM services in one program! (AOL, Yahoo, ICQ, IRC, MSN)
To find out more information about how you got infected in the first place and some great guidelines to follow to prevent future infections you can read this article by Tony Klein.
