WIN X Sp2 IE8.0 killed by CPXRSYSGUARD.EXE and or ? Cant get IE8 to access the web

Tonite, I Contracted 39 versions of what SuperAntiSpyware calls:

ROGUE.AGENT/GEN  in my Registry

HKUS\S-1-5-21 (see below)   etc (in 39 different file endings) and

TROJAN.AGENT/GEN-FakeSpy[Broad]   3 copies

1.   in 
HKUS\S-1-5-21-2952124706-32014773-2762605872-1007Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run(jdfecxfs- 
C:\Documentsand 
Settings\Alan\LocalSettings\ApplicationData\ubqllk\cpxrsysguard.exe   and

The other two in C:\ DocSettings\Alan\LocalSettings\ApplicationData   where 
it again opened a Folder named UBQLLK and inserted 2 copies of 
CPXRSYSGUARD.EXE

It began opening copy after copy of its version of an  Anti Virus etc 
demanding that I let it search and fix my problems.

At the same time, it was busy repeatedly opening WEBPAGES:  VIAGRA.COM, 
PORNO.COM and ADULTSEX  (or something) .com

**  I'm running AVG free Ver 8.5  and SuperAnti spyware**   but neither saw 
this thing coming.

My SecurityCenter settings said that my AV  wasnt working ( it looked like 
this thing shut down AVG) while this thing did its 70+ attempts to start and 
run while I tried to stop it.  I managed to get SuperAntiSpyware up and 
running and it finally found all the above after fighting with the JUNK for 
an hour..

Once finished, I got  SAS to quarantine all those entries (42) and 
restarted.  I found a STARTUP line in MSCONFIG/startup for CPRXSYSGUARD so I 
unchecked that and restarted in SAFE MODE.  I then ran a full AVG scan which 
found nothing.

I restarted again but was unable to get IE8 to go to my HOME website.  I 
tried several sites, no luck, just Windows "advice" page to try again or 
retype etc.

I did a regular SEARCH (Left menu) for  CPXRSYSGUARD and it revealed 3 
copies in something called:

[Explorer Icon] 
kaka://C:\DocumentsandSettings\Alan\LocalSettings\AppData\ubqllk\cpxrsysguard.exe/alert.htm
and in  Explorer]kaka://C:\                       SAME 
..exe/mtmlMain.htm
and  Explorer] kaka://C:\    SAME          .exe/netalert.htm

I deleted these directly from SEARCH  but all to no avail.
I can't get  IE8 to bring up any webpage.  I tried my OUTLOOK thru the same 
connection and went to Newsgroups just fine..but no internet.

I found more similar copies/pieces  of this thing in odd places in my 
Registry so I ran a Registry Scan With REG Cleaner WINASO  Ver 3.0
I ve run it before with no problems. All the pieces I could find, in 
Registry, I removed. It did also find another piece of EVIL in 
C:/Windows/Temp/  named 3812937264.exe which may have been the start of all 
this.  It was removed also but still no luck.

Everything LOOKS ok and seems to RUN OK, but cannot get IE8 to go online.

I figured WTH, and went to SYSTEM RESTORE.. I tried 4 "restores" going back 
Dec 12, 10 8 and Nov 25..No luck, simply:

Computer CANNOT be restored to...the various dates..

I just recently U/G to IE8 from IE6.  It seems that this significantly 
SLOWED my USENET /newsgroups responses but I may be dreaming.

Any advice on how to try and get this problem fixed would be much 
appreciated...I ve been at it for 4+ hours now

Two suggestions:

- Open Internet Options, Connections tab, click "Lan Settings" button,
deselect all.

- To get control before any Rootkit or other malware, burn BitDefender,
or another program listed at the link below, to a CD
(using a working machine) and test the infected machine with it.
BitDefender also has a Rootkit checker on the Linux Desktop; run it if
you think that's the problem:

http://www.techmixer.com/free-bootable-antivirus-rescue-cds-download-list=
/

Download the executable rather than the .iso image, if one is available,
(though no .exe is available for BitDefender).

After the scan is run, if you elect to quarantine files, they're
quarantined to RAM and lost after you reboot.  You'll need to copy any
quarantined files to the hard drive, a thumb drive or elsewhere before
exiting.

Then run these:

Malwarebytes=A9 Corporation
http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam/program/mbam-setup.exe

SuperAntispyware

Malware is not merely a bother or an inconvenience, as it was up to a 
few years ago. Most malware today is written by highly competent 
individuals. It will resist attempts at removal, and often a successful 
removal will damage a computer or leave it in an unstable state.

In my opinion, unless you are comfortable with performing highly 
technical operations on their computer, you should not attempt to fix a 
seriously compromised computer on your own.

Otherwise, you should restore a known-good backup, if you have one, hand 
the computer over to a professional, or erase your hard disk and start over.

THAT DID IT ELMO !
Under LAN Settings, somehow the  USE PROXY SERVER box had become "Checked"
I "unchecked" that box and IE8 seems to be connecting fine now.

I Updated SuperAntiSpyware,  MalWareBytes and AVG and ran them all for a 
FULL SCAN.  No traces of anything amiss turned up.
I did a couple of thorough searches for the EVIL   "CPXRSYSGUARD.EXE" and no 
trace found.

So, do you think I need to do this BIT DEFENDER portion of your "cure" ?

How about the fact that SYSTEM RESTORE wouldn't work (trying 4 different 
"dates") last night ?

Is there a way to check and see if its back "working" without actually 
'restoring' back to a prior date ?
Should I try to RESTORE again anyway ?  If so, would I try One of the 4 
dates that wouldnt work, or one prior to those ?

THANKS VERY MUCH for your help so far !

If you think there's a problem, that's the way around it.  If not, save
the CD to use on friends' computers.

SR won't get you around malware; you would think it would go back to a
good registry, but the malware is too smart for that easy cure.  The
restore points are probably all bad now.

You can do that as a test, if you want.  If you've removed ALL the
corrupted files, there's no reference in an old registry entry to an
existing file.. right?

I assumed that as well.  After 2 days of several SAFE MODE runs of SAS, 
MalwareBytes, AVG and WINASO Reg Cleaner, my system seems to come up CLEAN, 
Joe.

Following advice that said to shut down SYS RES, prior to the SAFEMODE runs, 
I did that and when clicking APPLY, I was told that would dump ALL the OLD 
SYSREST points.  Since they didnt seem to work anyway, I let er rip and 
dumped them all.  After the 3 (X3)CLEAN scans in SAFEMODE, I set a NEW 
System Restore point and all seems well so far for the last 2 days.

THX for all your help

how to plot ONE x-y curve of two datas with different x values?
I have this data: x: (1.1) (3.6) (6.0) (7.5) (9.2) ... y: (4.2) (5.6) (6.3) (9.4) (9.6) ... and this data: x: (2.3) (3.2) (5.4) (6.7) (7.2) ... y: (1.2) (2.4) (3.3) (6.4) (8.9) ... Now I want a x-y chart with a SINGLE smooth curve, showing the average result of these two datas. By average, I mean that, suppose I have two curves, I want a curve which is always in the middle of them.

You need to create a single table of all your x values, and interpolate to find th...

CRM 3.0 Small Business Edition 90 day trial license
Does anyone know if Microsoft can extend the 90 day trial license? Has anyone done this before? One more question. Can you let the trial license expire before entering the purchased license key or do you have to enter the purchased license key BEFORE the trial license expires? Hi: Yes the trial license can be upgraded to a production license. It would probably be easier to upgrade the license before the trial runs out but you might be able to use deployment manager after that happens. I cannot say for sure as I have never seen this scenario. -- John. Microsoft Principal Architect ...

Win 7 x64 and problems with ERUNT
I have, since loading Win 7 x64, not been able to use ERUNT to automatically backup the Registry at startup. It appears that if you elect for the ERUNT default configuration to save the 'backup' to %systemroot%\ERDNT the backup will fail. However, I have since learned, (Google where else?) that if you elect to save the backup to another folder it will succeed. In my case I save the backup to a USB drive (P:\ERDNT) and 'autobackup' runs as it should at startup. ...
