I've closed a thread in Operating systems and moved it over to here to Security

Issue started as a result that the user could not login to WinXP pro - accessing the user account would present a screen and then logoff immediately.. an endless loop, same for safe mode...loops.
See original thread: http://forums.techguy.org/t328781.html

I've been able to user the Recovery Console and get to a command prompt.
I then renamed login.scr to cmd.exe (trick WinXP so I can get in) and waited for the screen saver to start and in it's place now gives me cmd.exe.

I can now enter c:\windows\explorer.exe and have gotten in and to a desk top. I've loaded some of the utilities spybots, adaware etc and just ran stringer.. which showed 7 viruses

I'm displaying the first HiJack THis I've been able to get. I have not fixed anything. Because this one looks like a lot of fun!!?!?

Note: I have not looged off as yet to see if I can get back in. Reduced the Screen save wait to one minute so I can get back in quickly (cmd.exe).

The big issue as I see it is the looping but this HJT might give me (us) some clues.

Hope you can help.

Looks like this line C:\WINDOWS\System32\devldr32.exe is

devldr32.exe is installed with Creative Labs audio hardware. Installed to start automatically by default, this process is crucial to Creative Labs AudioHQ, Creative Mixer and audio input. This program is a non-essential system process, but should not be terminated unless suspected to be causing problems

And on this line C:\WINDOWS\System32\wuauclt.exe


wuauclt.exe - This is used by the automatic update tool in Windows to check the Windows Update site every so often to see if any updates need to be installed.
The original wuauclt.exe from Microsoft gets placed in the Located at C:\WINDOWS\System32\wuauclt.exe . If you find it anywhere else then you should be suspicious for sure.


This line was Added by a variant of the RBOT WORM!

O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [Microsoft NT Update] winexec32.exe

This line seems to be ok it is from Command Software Systems, Inc. - anti Virus

Thanks I just googled on the winexec32 myself. Fixed it.
Everything else look ok.
I will run the tds-3 tool and check for anything else.

Still appear to be having a problem with unauthorized websites trying to get accessed..
I have cleaned-up a malware "upme - dllman" from the registry. but something is still running. I'm having troubles getting the windows critical updates to work.. and suspect the wuauclt.exe program may be corrupted or have been replaced...

Final Post:
Was able to fix the windows critical update by re-installing IE6. (This worked for me in the past). Many Wincritical updates and downloaded everything..OK.

....Then went that one step further and downloaded Service Pack 2... mistake. Get a blank screen.. on restart.. appears something has affected the video. Backed out SP2 and everything looks OK again.

I still suspect remnants of the worm or something trying to access some websites. The firewall (Freedom - not sure how good this really is) is reporting some activity trying to access some urls.

Regardless, I've had enough of this one. Closing this Thread. - marking resolved.
