and it contains one video file that is not working and the virus file, codec xp-win7.exe..i don't remember the number.. I tried to install the codec file, hoping for a good video quality, but got a virus instead.  

I have windows vista and now i have disabled security center


Now i scan with combofix.

Hello! Welcome to Malwarebytes Forums! welcome.gif

  • The logs can take some time to research, so please be patient with me.
  • Stay with the topic until I tell you that your system is clean. Missing symptoms does not mean that everything is okay.
  • Instructions that I give are for your system only!
  • Please do not run any tools until requested ! The reason for this is so I know what is going on with the machine at any time. Some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process.

You are are going down on the danger road by doing things on your own, You've run powerful tools like Combofix without supervision. Doing so can severely cripple or render your computer. Please refrain from doing so.Keep calm, removing malware isn't a quick process.




Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
  • The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.

I suggest you to uninstall uTorrent.

Your log(s) show that you are using so called peer-to-peer or file-sharing programmes (in your case uTorrent). These programmes allow to share files between users as the name(s) suggest. In today's world the cyber crime has come to an enormous dimension and any means is used to infect personal computers to make use of their stored data or machine power for further propagation of the malware files. A popular means is the use of file-sharing tools as a tremendous amount of prospective victims can be reached through it.

It is therefore possible to be infected by downloading manipulated files via peer-to-peer tools and thus suggested to be used with intense care. Some further readings on this subject, along the included links, are as follows: "File-Sharing, otherwise known as Peer To Peer" and "Risks of File-Sharing Technology."

It is also important to note that sharing entertainment files and proprietary software infringes the copyright laws in many countries over the world and you are putting yourself at risk of being indicted through organisations watching over the rights of the authors of such files (i.e. the RIAA for music files, or the MPAA for movie files in the USA) or the authors of the files themselves.

Naturally there are also legal ways to use these services, such as downloading Linux distributions or office suites such as "Libre Office or GIMP."

Also, please take a look here:

How cyber criminals infect victims via P2P with pirated software




Also your antivirus is out-dated, pirated and damaged!


ESET NOD32 Antivirus (Version:


C:\Program Files\eset\nodenable.exe


Name: ehdrv
Description: ehdrv
Class Guid: {8ECC055D-047F-11D1-A537-0000F8753ED1}
Service: ehdrv
Problem: : This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed. (Code 24)
Resolution: The device is installed incorrectly. The problem could be a hardware failure, or a new driver might be needed.
Devices stay in this state if they have been prepared for removal.
After you remove the device, this error disappears.Remove the device, and this error should be resolved.




No wonder your computer was so severly infected. You use a lot of cracks. This is playing with fire though.

Avoid using cracks and unknown programs from sources you don't trust. There are MANY alternative open-source applications.

Malware writers just love cracks and keygens, and will often attach malicious code into them. By using cracks and/or keygens, you are asking for problems.

So my advice is - stay away from them!


Go ahead and uninstall NOD32 and replace it with a free antivirus of your choice.


You can find many freeware alternatives here and here. Keep in mind to choose carefully in order to avoid conflicts or instability caused by incompatible security programs.
Also having more than one "real-time" program can be a drain on your PC's efficiency...




Also SaveVid Plug-in is considered adware so go ahead and uninstall it as well.



Now please download the following file => fixlist.txt and save it to the Desktop.
NOTE. It's important that both files, FRST and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work.

Run FRST and press the Fix button just once and wait.
The tool will make a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt). Please post it to your reply.

You can uninstall them now and it's recommended to install another antivirus immediately. :)



Now let's check for leftovers.

The most of them should take no more than 5 minutes each.

You can run these scans at night when you are not there and the computer is idle.

Also we need to repair some of the Windows services like Windows Update, Windows Firewall, Security Center etc. which are probably broken by the rootkit ZeroAccess.

And then I'll give you my final recommendations:



  • Please download RKill by Grinler from the link below and save it to your desktop.

  • Before we begin, you should disable your anti-malware softwares you have installed so they do not interfere RKill running as some anti-malware softwares detect RKill as malicious. Please refer to this page if you are not sure how.
  • Double-click on Rkill on your desktop to run it. (If you are using Windows Vista, please right-click on it and select Run As Administrator)
  • A black screen will appear and then disappear. Please do not worry, that is normal. This means that the tool has been successfully executed.

  • The scan should take no longer than 2 minutes.
