I just went through the new variation of this infection on 4 of my office machines this week.
They became infected just by going to a web page that was infected, or "loaded" to infect machines.
After spending 20 hours trying to get them clean, I ended up formatting and reloading all 4 machines.
I was able to save off all of the email and documents before reloading them. The infection is in Windows, and not in other areas.

The problem with this new variation is that it "hides" really well. It mutates and reinfects each time you reboot the systems.
I used every trick I had learned in the past, 3 different antivirus programs, SpyBot, HyJack this, and a few others, and nothing would completely clean it.
I even tried doing a restore to a week before.
No luck.

So I suggest you offload your emails and Documents, Format, and reload. It's the only way you are going to completely clean it.

XP Antivirus 2008 is one of the latest counterfeit antispyware that devastates the wolrd wide web. XP Antivirus 2008 usually come up after you installed a video codec that come with Trojan, malware and virus. XP Antivirus 2008 normally generates fake and misleading system popup error messages so end-users will be tricked into purchase XP Antivirus 2008.

This is one of the warnings from the net about this program.

a system restore with disks or a full reinstall may be in your future.... reboot and tap f8 and then boot to safe mode.... does that work ?

Virus


Use sav32cli and scan your pc in command prompt.

http://www.sophos.com/support/disinfection/pedis.html

  1. Download an emergency copy of SAV32CLI. On an uninfected Windows computer, run this file to extract the contents into a SAV32CLI folder on a medium that can be write-protected. Copy the SAV32CLI folder produced onto a medium that can be write-protected. Add any relevant IDEs to this folder and write-protect the disk (on a CD/R or CD/RW close the session).
  2. Restart the computer in Safe Mode with command prompt.
  3. At the infected computer, place the CD in the CD drive (D: in this example). At the command prompt type
    D:
    to access the CD drive. Type:
    CD SAV32CLI
    Then type:
    SAV32CLI -DI -P=C:\LOGFILE.TXT
    to disinfect the virus.
    All other files must be deleted. Some of these were dropped by the virus and need not be restored. Others should be recovered from backups.
    SAV32CLI -REMOVE -P=C:\REMOVLOG.TXT
    This command writes a report to the root of the C: drive. This report can be used to check which deleted files should be restored from backups.
    In Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista, when disinfection and deletion have finished, restart the computer in Windows.
    Install or reinstall Sophos Anti-Virus then run an 'All files' scan to check that the virus has gone.
  4. Before leaving Safe Mode, check any registry entries mentioned in the virus analysis recovery instructions, and edit them if necessary. If problems persist, contact support.

I bought Windows AntiVirus 2008 on-line. When I run it, it says there are nine Trojan viruses. When I click fix the problem, it says to re-boot and run scan again. I have done this ten times. It tells...


Antivirus 2008 is a malicious rogue program that prompts you to buy their product. It also goes by Antivirus XP 2008 and Antivirus 2009. Since you have already bought it I am not sure how to get your money back. But, this is a fixable problem for your computer. Go to http://www.malwarebytes.org/rogueremover.php, download this tool and it will remove the program completely. Follow all instructions that are prompted and complete removal should be the result. Since it is a rogue program, simply uninstalling will not work. As soon as you reboot, all symptoms will return.

I am an IT Professional that has done this three times in my work this year. A Google search of Antivirus 2008 will reveal countless other people who have had the same thing. I suggest monitoring your bank account/credit card or whatever you used to pay to make sure other unidentified charges are added as other people have had this problem too. I would also suggest downloading an Antivirus such as AVG Free after you remove the rogue program.

Cannot get rid of an unwanted program .


here's manual antivirus xp 2008 removal
http://www.2-spyware.com/remove-antivirus-xp.html

If you are having problems with your desktop or getting the nasty message when you boot up follow the instructions below, but use the above link to remove the virus. YES THIS IS A VIRUS AND NOT A VIRUS REMOVAL TOOL!

First you need to stop the program from loading on startup. This is what you do to stop it:

Start, run

Type msconfig

Go to Startup tab
(if you've totally removed the antivirus program, you will not find these files and you can skip to the gpedit.msc step)

Uncheck lphc35dj0e1an
Uncheck rhc75dj0e1an

Click apply, then ok
Restart computer


Then you need to delete the main files this program uses. Delete the following file:

C:\windows\system32\lphc35dj0e1an.exe

Delete the following folder and all contents:

C:\program files\rhc75dj0e1an

This should remove the program from your system but you probably still have a warning message displayed as your wallpaper in Windows and the virus removed the ability to change the wallpaper or your desktop settings.

To restore ability to change your desktop settings and select a different wallpaper and screen saver do the following:

Start, run

type Gpedit.msc

Navigate to User configuration, Administrative Templates, Control Panel, Display

Right click on Remove Display in Control Panel
Click on Properties and select Disabled

Do the same steps to change the following attributes to disabled:

Hide Desktop Tab
Prevent changing wallpaper
Hide Apperance and Themes tab
Hide Settings tab
Hide Screen Saver tab

You should now be able to use your computer normally and change the wallpaper/screensaver to something other than the warning message Antivirus XP 2008 set it to.

Facing windows XP problem


Try running Windows in safe mode by turning the computer and holding down on the F8 button while the computer is booting.

Instead of the Windows XP screen you will get a menu displayed. Select the safe mode option and press enter.

If Windows doesn't complete startup in safe mode, you will have to reinstall Windows.
