Windows 7: dclogs directory found may have something to do with wshom.exe

02 Nov 2013   #11

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

Hello Jacee and thank you for all the work you have put into this!

I'm not doubting you but if you have some more information so I can trace back my actions so I don't do the same thing again. (will find new ways of messing up TM)

I try not to download cracks or keygens but sometimes I want to try out a program before buying it and sometimes there isn't a trial...

This Rootkit seems (to me) like it appeared just a couple of weeks ago and I have no recollection of installing a crack at that time. Was actually rather a long time since I used this way of trial...

So if you could tell me what Rootkit I have and where you located it, so I may learn from this!

Thank you very much!

Hello Jacee,

Since I can't paste the log (too long) I attach it and also a screendump of the program after running.

Ok, Eset found two threats

C:\Users\All Users\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Recovery\ Win32/ worm
C:\ProgramData\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Recovery\ Win32/ worm cleaned by deleting - quarantined
By the looks of it Spybot has already found them but I haven't deleted the quarantined files.
I did delete the files this time.

I had a look at ThreatExpert Report and the files, which I have removed, was located where they say and the directory dclogs also. The Registry Keys and Values I can't find using RegEdit - Find, so maybe I found the threat before it activated (of maybe there is a new version that does things differently...)

Is there anything more I should do?

I removed all the files, although most of them are only on the list because of their name containing the word 'crack', e.g. tchaikovsky__nutcracker_.
