Help With Wowfx.dll

Recommended Posts

Hello:

My name is Rui da Silva and I thank you in advance for your help.

My operating system is windows XP and I am getting the popups on the exe. files due to the wowfx.dll Trojan.

I have followed all of your instructions and enclosed is the log file for highjackThis done with the hidden files as instructed.

I apologize but prior to accessing your website I had already deleted the following but I know that there are others.

O20 - AppInit_DLLs: C:\WINDOWS\system32\wowfx.dll

It was very annoying.

It is better now but it needs a proper cleaning.

Your help is very much appreciated and I will be waiting for your reply.

God Bless

I had already deleted the following but I know that there are others.

Yep..

ReRun HijackThis and put a check next to the following

F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\proper.exe

Close all windows and click Fix Checked

reboot

Deckard's System Scanner

Download Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) to your Desktop. Note: You must be logged onto an account with administrator privileges.

  1. Close all applications and windows.
  2. Double-click on dss.exe to run it, and follow the prompts.
  3. When the scan is complete, two text files will open - main.txt <- this one will be maximized and extra.txt <-this one will be minimized
  4. Copy (Ctrl+A then Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V) the contents of main.txt here.
  5. Please attach extra.txt to your post.

To attach a file to a new post, simply

  1. Go to the Atachments section on the post composition page.(just below the text entry window), and
  2. copy and paste the following into the "Select a file" box:

    C:\Deckard\System Scanner\extra.txt


  3. Click Upload.

What DSS will do:

  • create a new System Restore point in Windows XP and Vista.
  • clean your Temporary Files, Downloaded Program Files, and Internet Cache Files, and also empty the Recycle Bin on all drives.
  • check some important areas of your system and produce a report for your analyst to review. DSS automatically runs HijackThis for you, but it will also install and place a shortcut to HijackThis on your desktop if you do not already have HijackThis installed.
