What to check after malware removal


Recommended Posts


i experienced last week a malware attack that i solved using all the comments/methods/tips and trics from Kahdah (see the thread Cerbere,kahda, 2 weeks ago, in that forum).This time it was vbmacd78.sys that i discovered on the pc.

once removed, things are not so good: pc is very slow (several minutes to open "Mycomputer", Network properties are empty but however the network is ok, and i am able to surf to internet, google, and use forum :)

Configuration is the following: windows XP SP2, with recovery console installed :). Laptop EasyNote from P**B**. Two users on that machine.

When looking at Network properties, WMI errors. Ran WMI diag and find a lot of errors regarding DCOM security and "Default Trustee NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON that has been removed" . In fact it seems there are several ACE that have been removed. I attached the log.

The probleme is that i don't know how to repair, and even if it is repair-able. So please any one could help telling me what to look at and what to try?

Some thing else that can help maybe: there were two users on that machine. One is still OK (pretty OK) the other did not log in (files are still there, but desktop no longer linked to that user, no explorer, no way to work on the pc from that login.)

Humm, i just realize this message was not in the right forum....Neverless, there is too much troubles with the result of the removal. Not only wmi has problem, but no windows update do work, and no way to update. Finally i am burning a CD with windows XP SP2 and will do a recover. Hope this will work.

Regards every body
