ZXDNT3D.CFG not detected or removed

Recommended Posts

  • Root Admin


As posted on another site. MB is not detecting or removing C:\Windows\System32\ZXDNT3D.CFG - appears SAS is having trouble removing it as well.

I've been running SAS and MB scans. MB is saying this is OK. SAS keeps finding C:\Windows\System32\ZXDNT3D.CFG. Every time it finds this file, it says that I need to restart to complete the job. So I restart, run the scan and get this files comes up again and again it says I need to restart to complete the job.

I don't see this in msconfig Startup. I do see the file in C:\Windows\System32

Not sure why MB is not detecting it. Will try to get more details on the MB version and the system.

From the guy who is running MB on the infected system.

I'm running MB v1.10. I ran MB which found 3 entries and then power down, power up and run MB again which finds the same entires. I've done this 3 times. It says it has removed the items, but it hasn't. Here's the log.

2nd post

The machine is getting Deewoo popups. I had it turned off in msconfig, but it's now enabled again. Messenger and ctfmon have also been enabled in msconfig - I didn't do it.

I'm going to remove the Deewoo files in Win\Sys32 - maybe that will help as SAS and MB aren't working.

3rd post

I used HJT to remove Deewoo - there was another instance of it in Prefetch - something to watch out for.

Anyway, SAS and MB are now not finding anything
