    Problems with possible virus - Trojanhunter

    I ran trojanhunter and found an open port, 2040 I believe, and then my computer stopped being responsive. I have NAV, Trojan Hunter, and AdAware. I noted many services.exe running and many in all capitals, if that makes a difference. As an aside I have tried updating TH but am unable to connect. Any info appreciated.

    Here is a copy of the Hijack this log:

    400 looked like a pretty clean log to me..port 2040 seems to be the default port for Inferno Uploader
    Here's a few things you can do...go to and download the latest version of The Cleaner
    If you'd like to know if there IS any activity from your port 2040,check your firewall logs.
    Assuming the worst case scenario..let's say you do have some process running on that port,go and download fport(It's a small tool that lets you trace a service on a port to the file running it,it's for Win NT/XP I believe) and kill the relevant process..btw guys..can this serve as an alternative solution to getting rid of a trojan?well,obviously not all the traces of it..but just narrowing it down somewhat?

    Hello davvfw900

    To answer a few of your questions. Having many services running will just use up some of your system resources. If your system is robust enough, you probably won't even notice the difference.

    There have been a few bits of malware going around that have been kicking the s**t out of Nav for some reason, so I would recommend running the following online scans. Run them both, and fix whatever they find.
    Go to PandaSoft’s Free Scan
    TrendMicro's online scan is here.

    Also, make sure ZoneAlarms isn't malfunctioning and blocking our update. Sometimes it doesn't play well with XP.

    Please put HijackThis in its own folder. It likes to make backups and it is best to keep them all in one place. Otherwise you will lose them when you flush your temp files.

    The only thing I see that needs to be fixed with HJT is:
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {5CA3D70E-1895-11CF-8E15-001234567890} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\dla\tfswshx.dll

    Make sure all windows and browsers are closed, or the fix won't stick. You may have to temporarily disable Nav in order for the fix to stick. I'm not sure what version of Nav you are running, but newer versions lock the browser from changes.

    If you are still having a trojan issue, give A-Squared a try. I count it as a must have piece of software.

    Good luck!

    First of all Copy the hyjakthis.exe to a Perment Directory. And them post the log again.....This will allow backups to be made and saved By hijackthis in case something goes wrong. ....Don't remove anything Before you Move it to a permenet directory

    You have AD_Aware have you uodated it's reference File lately if not Update it.. The following entries seems out of order ....

    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page =
    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL =

    --Good Luck--

    Yes, mostly. Trojans show up in the running processes, and often will be called from the 04 entries. It's a very useful tool..even for more than just diagnosing malware.

    Take a peek at this one Securitywonks has gotten most of them. It has a little of everything.

    Good point Swordfish, in this case there was no complaint about the start page being hijacked, so I leave them alone.

    Hi Swordfish,
