Just got my first pc... Last week I had kwbot, now it's sdbot! I've been working in advertising on mac's for the past 5 years and never imagined windows was so vulnerable!

I ran spybot search and destroy and deleted all check files. Also installed and ran swat it. Norton keeps flasing backdoor.sdbot.gen - msprot32.exe. I ran hijack this and am attaching. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Well it's sitting right up their in Running Processes:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\MsProt32.exe

The question is what is starting it? I don't see anthing in the normal startups which suggests that it is configured as a service somehow.

I'd suggest starting up in Safe Mode and doing a full NAV scan there. Nav will probably be able to quarantine or delete the file. You can also manually delete it.

You may get a startup error on restart. If you do, run HijackThis again and click Config > Misc Tools. Then put a check in "list minor sections" and click Generate Startup list.

sorry for the delayed reply. Work is crazy these days!

I believe that may be legit. I ran hijack this for tony klein to review on a previous posting concerning the kwbot virus my computer contracted. He did not specify to remove this item so I would have to believe that it belongs there. I'll go ahead and post my original hijack this log (kwbot) along with the new log I just ran today. Both still have powermanage.exe but norton and spybot are both showing a clean system.

So, these viruses seem to be spreading through file share systems which I recently started playing around with (winmx, kazaa, morpheus). Would you guys recommend staying away from these fileshare services all together? Or is there a way to safely download content?

Here are the logs, thanks again for all the input! This is way beyond helpful. One thing I miss about working for a company rather than my current freelance status is.... my old IT dept!!!

thanks again! sm

It may well be legit, but possibly associated with software too new to have any web documentation -- although that is relatively unusual.

Do a file search for it, powermanage.exe --

Right click on it and select Properties > Version. Any Company or Copyright info?

Look at the "created" date, this will tell you when it was installed on the system. Does it match up with the installation date of known good software or hardware?

If you run msconfig and clear the check for it under the Startup tab, does anything "break"?

rollin' rog-

I checked out the properties of powermanage.exe as instructed. The application pre date the purchase of my computer by a few months. I'm working on a Medion 2.6 p4/ manufactured in Germany. Looks as though it's new software installed by manufacturer. I read that Medion uses components from different manufacturers to "patch" together their line of pcs. Not sure if that would have anything to do with installed powermanage.exe software.

Also, followed your advice, ran msconfig, unchecked powermanage.exe and nothing broke. At least I don't think anything did. Everything else on the page remained checked. Is that the desired result? System seems to be running fine after all of the help you guys have offered. Thanks again for the continued support.

FIC is a Motherboard vendor. If that is your motherboard, then not to worry. But the question remains as to what it does and whether it really is supposed to be there. Typically if something related to "power management" breaks, you will have standby or shutdown problems. So that is what you should look out for.

We've occasionaly seen setup files (they have the typical "computer" setup icon) get left in startups, but it would be very unusual as they would have to be configured to run without user intervention.

And yes everything else should remain checked, unless you feel like experimenting -- that's what msconfig is for.
