View Full Version : Think i've got a virus but nothing ever detects anything

07-12-2007, 03:39 PM
After reinstalling windows after one of my PCs had a hard drive crash, I am now noticing some suspicious behavior...

First of all I noticed some strange startup entries where the files are apparently "missing"

most checked out OK except for:

+ ayg2degt File not found: C:\WINDOWS\System32\Drivers\ayg2degt.sys

which I couldn't find anywhere

I deleted that entry yesterday and now I notice 2 new ones:

+ avol8zfl File not found: C:\WINDOWS\System32\Drivers\avol8zfl.sys
+ XDva052 File not found: C:\WINDOWS\system32\XDva052.sys

These are the rest of them, which I think are normal files, but not sure:

+ catchme File not found: C:\DOCUME~1\AARONC~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\catchme.sys
+ Changer File not found: C:\WINDOWS\System32\Drivers\Changer.sys
+ i2omgmt File not found: C:\WINDOWS\System32\Drivers\i2omgmt.sys
+ lbrtfdc File not found: C:\WINDOWS\System32\Drivers\lbrtfdc.sys
+ PCIDump File not found: C:\WINDOWS\System32\Drivers\PCIDump.sys
+ PDCOMP File not found: C:\WINDOWS\System32\Drivers\PDCOMP.sys
+ PDFRAME File not found: C:\WINDOWS\System32\Drivers\PDFRAME.sys
+ PDRELI File not found: C:\WINDOWS\System32\Drivers\PDRELI.sys
+ PDRFRAME File not found: C:\WINDOWS\System32\Drivers\PDRFRAME.sys
+ WDICA File not found: C:\WINDOWS\System32\Drivers\WDICA.sys

I've run all sorts of anti-spyware and antivirus, offline and online scans, nothing weird seems to comes up, even on anti-rootkit and ntfs alternate data stream scans

The other problem is that iexplore.exe and sometimes firefox.exe don't exit from the task list even when the browsers are shut down, and I can't manually end process. sometimes they seem to exit after a while (maybe 10 min etc)

It all seems rather suspicious and virus-like, I could just format and re-install, but I'd rather not have to.

Anyone got any tips for trying to work out if this is a virus or not?

Run Speedy's HJT file and post it here for a diagnostic.

Looks like some of those files belong to Onecare.

Is this or was this installed??

lbrtfdc.sys looks like it belongs to a floppy controller driver by Toshiba

And some of the others, something to do with Citrix.

07-12-2007, 03:54 PM
but that's what makes no sense, I never had onecare or anything to do with citrix installed

nor do I have a toshiba floppy drive controller! just the standard one that's on the Asus K8N motherboard....

I wouldnt get too carried sway with the Anti-malware software.

If they do the same thing, they may conflict. And they'll start killing each other.

You dont need so many.

These can be ticked

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SunJavaUpdateSched] "C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0_03\bin\jusched.exe"

Nothing in there to do with the files you posted in the 1st post.

You may have to show system files to see IF those files are there.

07-12-2007, 04:26 PM
As far as I know HJT doesn't show up entries for files that cannot be found

another "missing" file appeared in the services on reboot:


Also, got a funny error from trojanremover:

Sschk.exe is not a valid win32 application (but quickscan still ran anyway)

I have a feeling Alcohol 120% has something to do with it.

Some of those files maybe files it creates.

07-12-2007, 04:59 PM
I doubt it though, I have the same version of alcohol on the other PC and I don't get random 'missing' sys files in services on that one

Speedy Gonzales
07-12-2007, 05:08 PM
Well disable the startup entry for Alcohol in msconfig then reboot.

Use ccleaner / registry, scan for issues first delete whatever comes up first.

Soon find out.

See if they re-appear with Alcohol off

08-12-2007, 10:44 AM
OK, uninstalled alcohol and the randomly named system files seem to have disappeared :badpc:

Which confuses me because this computer also has alcohol but not the random files...

Anyway, I still get a problem with my browsers (usually IE) not exiting

Speedy Gonzales
08-12-2007, 10:50 AM
So, whats IE doing then?? Hanging?

If its IE 7, go to the addons and disable what u dont know.

Some addons seem to cause probs.

08-12-2007, 10:53 AM
IE7 works fine, but when I quit it, even though there is no sign of it on screen, iexplore.exe stays in the task list, and cannot be killed. sometimes there is more than 1 of them

sometimes it happens with firefox.exe too

I'll try turning all the addons off in a minute

08-12-2007, 11:44 AM
Well what do you know... I thought about it and figured "what's in common with all the browsers"

well that was keyscrambler, uninstalled that and now they all exit immediately

Good to know it wasn't a virus I guess, suppose I will re-install keyscrambler and see what happens

Speedy Gonzales
08-12-2007, 11:47 AM
Ah ha.. Good to hear u figured out the prob!

08-12-2007, 12:12 PM
Seems the problem comes back when I install keyscrambler again... now just got to figure out why it doesn't work :badpc:
