Howdy xupugh,


Welcome to CTH. Yes, there is some infection showing there. Though this is not an infected item, I am curious as to why so many instances of it are running.

C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\WIDGET~1\WidgetEngine\YahooWidgetEngi ne.exe

Please do the following. You will want to print or have access to these steps while working in Safe Mode.


Make sure you can View Hidden Files. Also uncheck "Hide Extensions for Known File Types"


Download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite from here.

When installing, under "Additional Options" uncheck "Install Background Guard" and "Install scan via context menu".

Launch Ewido (there should be an icon on your desktop doubleclick it). The program will now go to the main screen. You will need to update ewido to the latest definition files.

On the left hand side of the main screen click update and then click on Start Update. The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed. If you have problems with the updater, you can use this link to manually update ewido.
ewido manual updates http://www.ewido.net/en/download/updates/. Do not run a scan yet.


------------------------------------------------------------------

Reboot into Safe Mode (at startup tap the F8 key and select Safe Mode).

Close all open windows and run a scan in HijackThis. Place a check next to all of the following lines, then select “Fix Checked” and close HijackThis.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [winupdates] C:\Program Files\winupdates\winupdates.exe /auto


Do a search ( Start-Find-Files or Folders) for the following files/folders (shown in Bold), and if found, delete them.

C:\Program Files\winupdates (the entire folder)


Run Ewido now. Click on Scanner and click Complete System Scan and the scan will begin. During the scan it will prompt you to clean files, click OK. When it asks if you want to clean the first file, put a check in the lower left corner of the box that says "Perform action on all infections" then choose clean and click OK. When the scan is finished, click the Save report button at the bottom of the screen. Save the report to your desktop and close Ewido.


Then reboot. Run a new scan with HijackThis and post that and the Ewido log back here.

Thanks JinTan. I am at work today, so I won't be able to get back to you until later tonight, if that is OK?

Well, I'm multi-tasking at work today. I brought the PC with me, but just have to burn and transfer the material to get it on the Net.

The Ewido program finished running, but I have to click each individual thing that reads:

The file "C:\ ..." cannot be removed because it is embedded in the archive "C:\ ...". Do you want to remove the whole archive?

I have clicked yes, but it appears that I am going to have to do that 2000 more times.

Is there a way around this?

I did that, but this is a separate "Warning" Message that appears.

My only two options are Yes / No

I'm re-running the program. I made sure to click "Perform action" and to set that to "remove."

I'll update in about 115 minutes (if it takes as long as last time).

---

I don't mind clicking the Yes button 2000 times, just can't stand the PC system "boot" noise that many times.

The "Warning" message came up again as it began the cleaning process. I will have to click for a while. After I am finished removing the infected objects, I will post the report.

Thanks for the help. I need earplugs for the noise though.

If that continues, post back a sample of the file and location of the archive it is referencing. It may be items you can clear en-masse and then rescan (but post here first).

Warning

The file "C:\Documents and Settings\xupugh\Complete\Amigo Easy Video Converter 4.29.zip/Setup.exe" cannot be removed because it is embedded in the archive "C:\Documents and Settings\xupugh\Complete\Amigo Easy Video Converter 4.29.zip". Do you want to remove the whole archive.



Thanks.

Are they all referencing that software? It is a legit program, and might possibly have components that would appear to a scan as infection (but be harmless in fact).

Not just that software. I just went to that folder of the C: drive to see how many files were in it ... 2,271.

They range from "Anonymous Web Surfing 3.3" (which I've never downloaded) to "Apache Cookbook" to "Burn and Go X" to "iMarkup 3.97" to "Microsoft Office 2003 Service Pack 2" to "Symantec Norton AnitVirus 2005"

It runs a gamut of stuff.

They are all archived (all known programs identified as executable files located in a zip file)?

Understand we are not discussing some by-product of infection, but how to make the scan do the removal procedures you need. I am not familiar with a Complete folder located in a user Documents and Settings. Do you have some sort of back-up software that would create this.
