I need some help... My home PC seems to have been taken over by something that I've had no luck in finding any other occurances of anywhere. Here's the situation... After a moderate uptime period of my WinXP Pro workstation, My network traffic will cease to fuction. I can't get out anywhere. I then kill the Zone Alarm firewall and traffic resumes. However, I notice (by using the traffic indicator icons) that my tx and rx led's are lit up on my network connection, which is Ethernet to Broadband router. Further looking, I run the Etherreal Packet analyzer and I notice that TCP traffic is being sent and recieved on my machine and the TCP port number is 5678 and a range of 2800-3300. The traffic itself is HTTP traffic to a specific webpage which is:

http://schemas.xmlso...g/soap/encoding

The page load requests and server responses just keep looping lke this, until I kill an svchost.exe service that is utilizing in my opinion, way too much of my system memory. Once that happens, the traffic stops completely. Does anyone have any thoughts besides the online virus scanners? I have run both Trendmicro's housecall and Symantec's online tool and both turned up nothing. I've also run the latest Adaware and Spybot tools as well. Here is a copy of my latest Hijackthis log. Maybe something can be seen there:

Hi there,

You are running hijackthis from your desktop, this is not a good idea because when we do a fix hijackthis will create backups and they will be spread all over your desktop. Can you please create a folder in My Documents and call it Hijack (or something similar) like this C:\HJT\HijackThis.exe. Then extract hijackthis into the folder you have created and run it from there. When you have done that, delete the copy of hijackthis that you have on your desktop.

When you have done that, then make sure all browsers and windows are closed except for hijackthis and put a check against the following and click 'fix checked';

Reboot, then post a fresh logfile so that I can check to see if it is clean.

Hi there,

Your log is clean now, to help keep it that way do this:


To provide future protection - I would advise you to download and install:

SpywareBlaster will block bad ActiveX and malevolent cookies. Download from Here

IE-SPYAD puts over 5000 sites in your restricted zone, if you use IE, so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all. Download
Here

Both are very small free programs that you run once, and then just weekly to check for updates.

And also see
So how did I get infected in the first place?

I appreciate the help... however, this does not solve my original problem. The traffic still picks up and attempts to loop web page access and load requests to that webpage I listed. I notice that when this happens, if I kill the svchost.exe process, this behavior stops. Looking further into the situation, I did a tasklist /svc > tasklist.txt to save a copy of the specific services and the effected svchost.exe task has several processes running inside of it. I'm dead sure that once of these processes is the culprit. Here is the log. Does anyone see anything that should not be there? And can someone tell me how to straighten this out, if so? Thanks for all the help.

Hi there,

From the list you have posted there is nothing suspicious. I would advise you to post on the PC Troubleshooting here :wave:
