Hi yellowclaw ..

Set Windows to show Hidden files and folders
* Click Start.
* Open My Computer.
* Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
* Select the View Tab.
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm.
* Click OK.



**(Always create a Folder for HiJackThis anywhere but your Temp/Temporary Internet Folders. This is where it will save the backup files needed if there's a problem.)**

Press Ctrl/Alt/Del and "End Task" or "End Process" on each of the following: (They may or may not be there)

yuwruo.exe
Gdngtcj.exe
wsxsvc.exe
srftku.exe

Turn off System Restore WinXP WinME. (Turn it back on after this is repaired and you've rebooted.) Close all other open Windows and have HiJackThis Fix:

In regards to C:\WINDOWS\system32\yuwruo.exe, I saw it only one time.  I was in Safe Mode and tried to delete it.  I received a message stating that access was denied.  Any idea how to locate it and remove it as I can not find it in C:\WINDOWS\system32\, even with your show hidden files instructions.

Download the program Killbox. Unzip it to it's own folder.
Run the program.
In the bottom right hand corner you will see a drop-down box labelled (System Process.)
Drop that down, and select the active process that is likely to be your main infection reloader.
In your case, that will be: yuwruo.exe

Once you have selected that file name, click the yellow triangle with the ! inside it to end that process.

Next, at the top of the window, use the folder icon to browse to: C:\windows\system32\yuwruo.exe

Press the red X button to delete that file.


Do this in regular mode first. If it does not work, try it in Safe Mode, except that the exe will probably not be running as a system process in safe mode, so all you will need to do is delete them.

Then Re-run HJT...


Set Windows to show Hidden files and folders
* Click Start.
* Open My Computer.
* Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
* Select the View Tab.
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm.
* Click OK.

Press Ctrl/Alt/Del and "End Task" or "End Process" on each of the following: (They may or may not be there)

yuwruo.exe

Turn off System Restore WinXP WinME. (Turn it back on after this is repaired and you've rebooted.) Close all other open Windows and have HiJackThis Fix:


O1 - Hosts: 69.20.16.183 auto.search.msn.com
O1 - Hosts: 69.20.16.183 search.netscape.com
O1 - Hosts: 69.20.16.183 ieautosearch

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [UserFaultCheck] %systemroot%\system32\dumprep 0 -u



Now delete these Folders or Files that are Highlighted: (You may need enable "Show all Files" and disable "Hide System Files" in Windows Explorer / Tools / Folder Options / View Tab) (You may have to boot to "Safe Mode" in order to delete some Files/Folders)

C:\WINDOWS\system32\yuwruo.exe


Now, empty all your TEMP Folders (WinXp has up to 4 of them) / Temporary Internet Files Folder and then empty your "Recycle Bin" and Reboot.

In Xp, here are some locations of Temp files

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files
C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files
C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files
C:\Documents and Settings\LocalService\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files
C:\Documents and Settings\NetworkService\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files

Turn on System Restore

Before opening your browser goto START>CONTROL PANEL>INTERNET OPTIONS and make sure your Homepage is correct,if not ,type the URL you would like in the HomePage box.


Now re-run HJT and post a new logfile back here.

I could not find yuwruo.exe under system32.  I did a search and found and removed it using Killbox under c:\windows\prefetch. As I was typing the previous response, the computer blue screen turned on and had to reboot.

It won't die!! ..

Can you not boot into SAFE MODE and browse to the file and DELETE it?
C:\WINDOWS\system32\yuwruo.exe

What about going to START>SEARCH>ALL FOLDERS/FILES
Type yuwruo

It won't show itself!  Must have been created by the VC's.  Any other methods?

I found these under C:\windows\system\

Any idea what they are and can I remove them?

Image Insert:
53.26 KB
Right click and select Save Target As... then rename the file as shown here and save.

Do this ALL in SAFE MODE and make sure Windows is set to Show Hidden Files/Folders


You can Delete :
121690.exe
121710.exe
121711.exe
122335.exe
122336.exe
teen.exe

Also again delete this one if it is there:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\yuwruo.exe

Then re-run HJT and remove these lines:

O1 - Hosts: 69.20.16.183 auto.search.msn.com
O1 - Hosts: 69.20.16.183 search.netscape.com
O1 - Hosts: 69.20.16.183 ieautosearch
