Operating System Version:XP Professional Chinese
Problem Application Name & Version:Windows XP Professional
Problem Hardware Make & Model:None
Error Messages:None. Yet.

My dad recently installed a Win XP Professional chinese. After installing he tried to download service pack 2 (SP2) from the Microsoft website. He got to about 99% of the download and then the computer jammed. After that, I don't know if this has to do
with the SP2 download, but suddenly he got popups trying to connect him to the net to go to a site called ''. This was only the beginnning. After, it seemed the problem got worse as I tried to use McAfee to scan the computer, something made the scan finish in less than a second and with no virus found. Something also shut down the On-Acess Scan, which is still disabled as I type. Something also makes the CTRL-ALT-DEL tasklist to close after less than a second. I have tried a lot of things, like going into command and Regedit. I need help because my dad is going to need his PC to work.

I have a hijack this log, i took this log in safe-mode, cause the virus or worm keeps shutting hijack this down in regular mode.

Logfile of HijackThis v1.97.7
Scan saved at

I need help.

If you can Please download and run the following programs:


Go here:
and download Ad-Aware SE Personal

Install the program and launch it.

First, in the bottom right-hand corner of the main window click on Check for updates now then click Connect and download the latest reference files.

Then, in the main window: Click Start and under Select a scan Mode tick Perform full system scan.

Then, deselect Search for negligible risk entries.

To start the scan, click the Next button.

When the scan is finished mark everything for removal and get rid of it. (Right-click the window and choose select all from the drop down menu and then click Next)

Restart your computer.


Open Spybot Search & Destroy (Click Start, Programs, Spybot S&D (Advanced Mode). Click online, Search for updates, Download all available updates. Close all Browser windows, Click ''Check for Problems''. Anything that needs to be fixed it will show in red and have a green check in the box to the left. Click ''Fix Selected Problems'', Then restart your computer.

Hijack This (This is the newest version)

Make sure you unzip hijack this to its own folder such as C:\Program files as this is where the backups will be created.Run Hijack this but do NOT fix anything.Click save log and a log will open in notepad.Copy and paste your log here.
