Your turn, next! :p

Well done!
Your bad file is positively identified on all counts!
This will take couple or more steps to fix.
Be sure to Follow the next set of steps carefully, in
the exact order specified:


-Open the FINDnFIX\Keys1 Subfolder!
- Locate the "MOVEit.bat" file,Right-Click on it,select->edit:
The file will open as empty text file.
-Copy and paste the entire hilited line in the following quote box
(all one line) into that blank 'MOVEit' file:

move %WinDir%\System32\SQLKOME.DLL %SystemDrive%\junkxxx\SQLKOME.DLL


-Save the file and close.

*Get ready to restart your computer:
-In the same folder, DoubleClick on the "FIX.bat" file.
You will be prompted by popup -Alert to restart in 15 seconds.
-Allow it to restart the computer!

-On restart, Navigate to:
C:\FINDnFIX\ main folder:
-DoubleClick on the "RESTORE.bat" file.

It'll run and produce new log. (log1.txt) post it here!

:thumbsup: Great progress! :thumbsup:

Last step(s):


-Open the FINDnFIX\Files2< Subfolder:
Run the -> "ZIPZAP.bat" file.
It will quickly clean the rest and
will make a copy of the bad file(s) in the same
folder (junkxxx.zip) and open your email client with instructions:
Simply drag and drop the 'junkxxx.zip' file from
the folder into the mail message and submit
to the specified addresses! Thanks!

When done, Restart your computer and
Delete and entire 'FINDnFIX' file+folder(s)
From C:\


As for the remains, run any and all
removal tools once again as they should work properly now!
In particular, CWShredder.exe and fully updated Ad-Aware!

Feel free to post follow up hijackthis log when done! :)
