Annoying flashing virus icon

Specs: Windows XP, Pentium 3
Hi,

I have recently encountered a problem with spyware. i turned on my computer yesterday to find a whole lot of whirring and flashing pop ups, telling me my computer has been infected with malicious spyware, i'm doomed if i do not download and buy suggested programs to fix the problem etc. Well i managed to clear up that part of the problem with SpyDoctor but have been left with the annoying flashing icon in the system tray (green wheelchair, red circle with line through it) and the accompanying message box it produces telling me I have a critical system error and my computer may be in mortal peril.
After reading some of the posts on this site, I ran a 'HJT' report and am hoping someone can help me locate the problem and destroy it. Please be aware however that i am not that skilled in messing with the registry or dll's so the simplest solution or detailed explanations would be greatly appreciated. Please help me save my computer!

Thanks!

Please post the Hijack This log.Hijack This needs to be in a folder of its own once we start removing the malware so if it is not follow these instructions to get it in its own folder.

Please post a Hijack This log so that the files associated with the virus/spyware/hijacker can be identified. You can download Hijack This at this link http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/ then place it into a folder of it's on, such as C:\HJT, so that back up copies can be made and not clutter your desktop or other folders and the backup copies of deleted items can be easily located if needed.

Once saved double click HijackThis.exe, and press "Scan". When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log, Ctrl-A to Select All, and copy its contents into the text editor at this forum.

Do not fix anything yet unless you know what you are doing. This is a powerful tool that can crash the computer if used improperly.

Please download SmitRemFix from this link http://siri.geekstogo.com/SmitfraudFix.php Then extract the contents to your desktop.

Open the "SmitfraudFix" folder and double-click "smitfraudfix.cmd"
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

You should get a list similar to this, could be only one or two files found and may not be these.

C:\WINDOWS\system32\atmclk.exe FOUND !
C:\WINDOWS\system32\dcomcfg.exe FOUND !
C:\WINDOWS\system32\hp?.tmp FOUND !
C:\WINDOWS\system32\ld?.tmp FOUND !
C:\WINDOWS\system32\ot.ico FOUND !
C:\WINDOWS\system32\regperf.exe FOUND !
C:\WINDOWS\system32\simpole.tlb FOUND !
C:\WINDOWS\system32\stdole3.tlb FOUND !
C:\WINDOWS\system32\ts.ico FOUND !
C:\WINDOWS\system32\1024\ FOUND !

If these files or similar ones are found go aheard and run option #2 as instructed in the next paragraph, if no files are found do not run option #2 as it will remove the desktop of an un infected computer.

Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :

Restart your computer

After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;

Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;

Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press "Enter".

Choose your usual account.

Once in Safe Mode, open the "SmitfraudFix" folder again and double-click "smitfraudfix.cmd"
Select option #2 - Clean by typing 2 and press "Enter" to delete infected files.

You will be prompted : "Registry cleaning - Do you want to clean the registry ?"; answer "Yes" by typing " Y " and press "Enter" in order to remove the Desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection.

The tool will now check if "wininet.dll " is infected. You may be prompted to replace the infected file (if found); answer "Yes" by typing "Y" and press "Enter".

The tool may need to restart your computer to finish the cleaning process; if it doesn't, please restart it into Normal Windows.

A text file will appear onscreen, with results from the cleaning process; please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.
The report can also be found at the root of the system drive, usually at C:\rapport.txt

Please download ATF-Cleaner to your desktop from this link
http://www.atribune.org/content/view/19/2/ Don't run it yet

Download Ewido Security Suite then set it up this way Ewido Setup Instructions Don't run it yet

Be sure to update Ewido

Reboot into safe mode.

Run Ewido from safe mode and let it delete all that it finds.

Run ATF-Cleaner from safe mode. Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Under Main choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.

Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Under Main choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.

Hi there,

here's the report from SmitFraudFix.

I can't get into safe mode I gather because of the USB keyboard I'm using, although I can get into the setup and boot sequence menu :0S

Can I run Ewido in normal mode safely?

Thanks

Don't worry about the safe mode thing. I worked out how to get into it through msconfig.

I'll post a new smitFraudFix report after cleaning the registry in safe mode.

Looks much better.Run HT again, close all windows and browsers except HT, place a check to the left of these items and press "fix checked":

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [UserFaultCheck] %systemroot%\system32\dumprep 0 -u
