Hello
I having a problem with the qhosts.apd tojan. I have tried Spybot Search & destroy, Ad-Ware, Symantec Removal Tool, and Mcafee (all latest versions) and mcafee detects it and cleans it every time I reboot the system. It's getting really annoying.
I am running Microsoft XP Professional (with XP2) on a IBM thinkpad. I even have tried hijackthis v1.99 Inc. is the hijack this log, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hello skar0913 and Welcome to TSG! :D

Open Task Manager (ctrl+alt+delete) and choose the "Processes" tab.
Find and "End Process" the following process (if there):
csmss.exe
xpsp2fw.exe
wuclient.exe

Turn off System Restore by right-clicking on My Computer and choosing "Properties". Click on the "System Restore" tab and put a tick next to "Turn System Restore off". Click "OK".

Go to My Computer and click on "Tools" then "Folder Options. Click on the "View" tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is enabled. Click "OK".

Locate to C:\WINDOWS\System32 folder and find and delete this file:
csmss.exe
xpsp2fw.exe
wuclient.exe

Run HijackThis and fix the following entries:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [WIN95DEFVIEW] C:\WINDOWS\System32\csmss.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [XPSP2 Firewall] C:\WINDOWS\system32\xpsp2fw.exe

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Windows Update Client ] C:\WINDOWS\system32\wuclient.exe

O4 - Startup: PowerReg Scheduler.exe

O16 - DPF: {5BDBA960-6534-11D3-97C7-00500422B550} (LotusDRSControl Class) - http://webmail.mslo.com/download/dolcontrol.cab


Turn "System Restore" back on if it was already on.

Download SpywareBlaster from here:
http://www.majorgeeks.com/downloadget.php?id=2859&file=11&evp=61b0e8ad41924a03c37615f4682b4cef

Install and run SpywareBlaster. Click on "Updates" and then choose "Check for updates". Next choose "Protection" and at the top you will see different tabs which are Internet Explorer, Restricted sites and Mozilla/Firefox. Choose one of them at a time and at the bottom click "Protect Against Checked Items" (make sure that all of the items are checked). Tick the boxes above the items. Make sure you do this for all of the top tabs. Mozilla/Firefox you only need to do if you have the user profiles on your computer. You may now exit out of SpywareBlaster.

Download the latest updates for both Spybot S&D and Ad-Aware and run both of them.

Restart your computer and post a fresh HijackThis log back on this thread.
