Hotmail Problem

December 18, 2009 at 09:47:04
Specs: XP, 2.Gb Ram
Have something causing my Hotmail to send out an email to My Contacts offering a web site with cheap electrical goods.
It goes out as a Vacation reply.
When I click don't send a vacation message it returns to Send when Save is clicked.
Have checked with AVG, Malwarebytes and MS Malicious Removal Tool all negative.
Is it possible that the 'Something' is located on my Hotmail account on their server and not 'in' my computer.
I could eventually open another Hotmail Account, which I presume would be free of this problem.
Have Goggled and followed advice without success.
The name is Hjdtg to google. Appears to be from China.

Probably in your computer.

Please run RSIT.exe by random/random and post its logs.

Download random's system information tool (RSIT) by random/random from the following link and save it to your desktop.


1. Double click on RSIT.exe to launch program.
2.(Vista Users Only) Right click on the RSIT.exe icon and select "Run as Administrator" to run the program.
3. Click Continue at the disclaimer screen.
4. Your firewall may alert you that RSIT is requesting Internet access. Please allow it.
5.Once it has finished, two logs will open: log.txt<-- this will be maximized and info.txt<-- this will be minimized. Both logs will be located at C:\RSIT.exe.

Please post the contents of both logs (in separate post) in your next reply. It may take 3 to 4 post to get the entire log to us.

Have seen a similiar post elsewhere.
I don't really want to go down, the suggested route.
Also, seen the suggestion, that the virus/trojan/malware is carried in Hotmail's adverts.
The 'vacation reply' is Empty the radio button is ticked as the 'Do not send is' so that should no longer cause a problem.
Thanks for your suggestions, appreciated.

"Well why did you ask for help"
That comment is uncalled for.
If the 'suggested solution' was 100% then it was something worth considering. I didn't want to download and install other programs. The latest I tried was from EMSI Software (A Squared Anti Malware) that failed, just like AVG and MS Malware removal tool
As far as I am aware the only surefire way is a format and install of the OS, but was hoping an 'easier' solution was available and KNOWN to members of Computing.Net, hence my post.Have seen the 'Reply' (RSIT) elsewhere but no follow Up as to it's success. I aplogise but thanks for your time.

Programs like RSIT , Gmer, Hijack This, RootRepeal, and Win32kDiag are not repair tools they are information gatherers to prevent us from taking the wrong course of action in repairing computers as well a being able to see the most recent changes to the computer and identifying the protection and bad files you have which are all key to the successful repair of the computer.

No suggestion is 100%, if someone says it is they are misinforming you. The nearest thing to 100% is format and reinstall and that is extreme when they may only be a few files causing the grief..

We know just about as much as you do about your computer until until we run the scans that help identify the baddies.

Also MS malicious malware removal tool and A-Squared seldom solve the problem if ever.

Using caddies, I maintain a caddy with a full OS with Acronis so it not a major problem for me to reinstall the OS.The only drawback is the MS updates (which seem endless) which have to be downloaded and installed. The caddy is kept in a drawer and is not in use on a day to day basis. I have twelve caddies with various OSs, Win 7,XP, Vista and Ubuntu. My tendency is to use Ubuntu more and more, seems to tick all the boxes for me. I don't Game!!!!!!!.
Your comments noted and thanks for your replies.
