Hi all,

I've suffering from a virus (quite not sure the name) since last couple days. So I followed various websites and found that ppl use Hijack This software to show up some short of log files. So following is my log file, I would really appreciate if someone can help regarding this, I'm sick of this now.

Also, I can summarize what I found during these days:

- In task manager, I see that Cidaemon.exe and services.exe eats memory (uses lot of resources)
- I saw couple of virus names while scanning through AVG in safe mode: Trojan.Zapchast, w32/heur (detected at some location called: HKLM\Software\Microsoft Internet Expl..., I'm not quite sure this, because barely I use Internet explorer)
- In normal mode, hardly after 10 mins computer gets hang and i need to turn it off from main switch and start it again. I've been doing these more than 50 times in last two days.

Please help me, I hope I'm not too late!!!

Hello samar84.

Your log shows 3 antispyware programs running on your computer: "Spybot - Search & Destroy's TeaTimer", "Windows Defender" and "Spyware Doctor".

Running more than one resident protection program of the same type (antivirus, firewall or antispyware program) at the same time can result in unwanted conflict.
This can reduce the effectiveness of all your programs individually and may slowdown your computer.

I suggest you disable all these programs, and I will tell you what to do later.

  • To disable Spybot-S&D's TeaTimer, please run Spybot-S&D => Mode menu, and make sure Advanced Mode is selected.
    On the left hand side, choose Tools => Resident and uncheck Resident TeaTimer. Click OK for any prompts. Then close Spybot-S&D.
  • T o disable Windows Defender, please open the program => Tools => General Settings and scroll down to Real Time Protection Options. Uncheck "Turn on Real Time Protection (recommended)" and click on the "Save" button. Then close Windows Defender.
  • To disable Spyware Doctor, please open the program and click on the 'Settings' button on the left hand panel. Then click on 'General' and uncheck "Run Scan at Windows Startup". Then close Spyware Doctor.

Now, please print out these instructions or copy them to a Notepad file for an easer reading and download, to your Desktop, ComboFix© by sUBs from here or here

* IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop

Please familiarize yourself with ComboFix here before running it.
I recommend you print out the information from this page or copy them to a Notepad file as well.

Please ensure you have disabled all anti virus and anti malware programs and run ComboFix.


- It is very important that you have the Windows Recovery Console installed because without it, ComboFix shall not attempt the fixing of some serious infections.
It's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.

- Please, DO NOT click ComboFix's window while it is running. This may cause it to hang.

Please include the contents of the log at C:\ComboFix.txt with a fresh HijackThis log in your next reply and let me know how your computer is functioning now.
