I think I may have been infected with some spam virus. :mad: I am experiencing extremely slow Internet connection & overall my PC is running a lot slower than usual.

When I am connected to the Internet, I keep getting pop-ups from McAfee saying:

VirusScan Hawk Alert
This alert was raised because you are sending an email with a potentially harmful attachment.
This may indicate that this attachment is a virus.
We recommend you choose "do not send" if you did not intend to send this email.

It then has details of the email subject, the attachment, recipients and the message body.


The problem is I'm not even sending an email! :confused:

I ran a McAfee virus scan but for some reason, it didn't even detect any problems.

Please help, my Internet speed is lagging like crazy.

Hello heavenly! :D

Download Ad-Aware SE from here:
http://www.download.com/3000-2144-10045910.html?part=69274&subj=dlpage&tag=button

Install and run Ad-Aware SE. On the bottom right corner of Ad-Aware you will see an option called "Check for updates now", click on that and choose "connect". Download the updates. Next click on "Scan now" on the left side of Ad-Aware. Make sure that "Search for negligible risk entries" is crossed out and not ticked. Choose "Perform full system scan" and click "Next". After Ad-Aware scans your computer, Ad-Aware may find some bad files on your computer so make sure you tick them all and choose "Next". It will ask if you want to remove those items so just continue. After removing the items close Ad-Aware.

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.

Is that any better?

Can I just ask a few questions:
What does this virus do?
Are the annoying alerts I'm receiving due to this virus?
How was I infected?
Will it come back?

Thanks so much crushbone!

Good, your log is clean. :up:

In answers to your questions:

What does this virus do?
This NETSKY variant propagates via email using its own Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) engine.
It exploits a known vulnerability affecting Internet Explorer involving incorrect MIME Header (MS01-020), which allows the automatic execution of email attachments while an email is read or previewed.

Are there annoying alerts I'm receiving due to this virus?
You will not had noticed the virus on your system.

How was I infected?
You would have received an email with an attachment of the virus and you wouldn't have noticed it.

Will it come back?
It is possible that you will be infected again that's if you receive an email with the virus attached to it.

I would suggest installing a Firewall and have a good Anti-Virus software.
I use Norton Internet Security 2004 which blocks unwanted viruses from emails so it does come in handy. :up:

Thanks so much crushed bone!

My anti virus program McAfee was alerting me that potential harmful emails were being sent so I was kind of aware something weird was happening and I did notice my Internet was considerable slower than normal.

I have the McAfee firewall installed also.

Where can I get the Norton Internet security.

Also another thing I have noticed in my 'My Downloads' folder there are all these files that were possibly put there due to the virus, how do I get rid of these? Can I just delete them?

I don't think that they were from the virus. You may delete whatever is in the folder if you wish.

Since you say that you are from "Melbourne" (where I live), you can purchase Norton Internet Security 2004 or 2005 (I am using 2004) from either Harvey Norman or Dick Smith Electronics. It is a little expensive but it is worth it. :up:

If you do purchase Norton Internet Security, make sure you uninstall McAfee before installing Norton.

Good Luck! :up: :D

Run HJT again and put a check in the following:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Cryptographic Service] C:\WINDOWS\System32\hgsbkimo.exe
O16 - DPF: {56336BCB-3D8A-11D6-A00B-0050DA18DE71} (RdxIE Class) - http://software-dl.real.com/04854f7...ip/RdxIE601.cab
O21 - SSODL: mtkle - {6B5BA249-C6B0-4EAE-8CB0-0CA480604F5D} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\zzoqc32.dll

Close all applications and browser windows before you click "fix checked".

Restart in Safe Mode

Open Windows Explorer. Go to Tools, Folder Options and click on the View tab.
Make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked.
Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files".
Now click "Apply to all folders", Click "Apply" then "OK"

Delete this file: C:\WINDOWS\System32\hgsbkimo.exe

Reboot and post one more log.
