Delete hex virus

I have win xp s2 and it has what seems to have a hex virus.
when windows/temp is accessed it starts counting from 0000000.tmp and ends when it reaches fffffff.tmp. it counts sequencially. It takes hours to finally reach the end. I have tried a number of removers and nothing has deleted it or found the parent program.I am running CyberKiko DeleteMe right now and it has been running for 5 hours and is at 23915a2. Has anyone had this problem ? Joe

    Than you for trying to help. But I have tried what you suggested. I did try to delete one but it said it was locked. I even tried a program called unlocker. It did not work. I have tried many different things. the latest one is a freeware program called Delete Me.It took over 10 hours to work thru the Windows/temp folder. It will not delete the findings for 2 days so that I am sure I want all it found deleted. I won't know of it does the job until tomorrow.I have used two very strong anti virus freeware programs , AVG and Avira, neither found it as a virus. It starts at 0000000.temp and ends with fffffff.temp 16 to the 7 power. I can get search to find the empty folders but it takes hours as it counts up from 000000. Joe

If it truly is a virus I suggest you first look for and purchase CA(Computer Associates) Internet Security Suite 2008 and run the Anti-Virus to check for viruses.

Second I would then make absolutly sure that those files are indeed not being used [Try to delete one; does it let you?]

If it does I would then go into the command prompt by this method.
Start > Run > cmd.exe
then type this command[Note unless you are positively sure those files arent important and they are taking up alot of space I would not use this command. If the above is true execute this command:
del C:\Windows\Temp\*.tmp

Again please make sure these files are not important lest you mess up your pc with that command!

Select safe mode to start your computer in safe mode.

26319210-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-5.jpg
Navigate to the Windows temporary folder. The default location of this folder is C:/Windows/Temp, C:/DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS/ProfileName/LOCAL SETTINGS/Temp, or C:/Users/ProfileName/AppData/Local/Temp, although it could have been set to another location entirely. In all cases, it can be located by typing "cd %temp%" into the command line. 26319210-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-9.jpg

Delete the following files. dfrgr dfrg WindowsUpdate.exe tmp2.tmp 26319210-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-14.jpg

While still in the temp directory, look for three files that have seemingly random file names (With no extension), (with .exe extension) & (With .dll extension).Delete all three of these.

26319210-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-20.jpg
Remove registry entries associated with the virus. Type "regedit" from the command line to start the windows registry editor. Navigate to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run, and delete two entries involving the same random characters found in the previous step. 26319210-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-27.jpg
Remove "Smart HDD," "Smart HDD.lnk," and "Uninstall Smart HDD.lnk" from the start menu. Then delete "Smart HDD.lnk" from the desktop.
26319210-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-35.jpg Reboot the computer in regular mode. The virus should be removed. 26319210-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-44.jpg

Note This procedure assumes that Windows XP is installed to the C:\Windows folder. Make sure to change it is a different location.

If you have access to another computer, to save time, you can copy the text in step five, and then create a text file called "Regcopy1.txt" (for example). To use this file, run the following command when you start in Recovery Console: batch regcopy1.txtWith the batch command in Recovery Console, you can process all the commands in a text file sequentially. When you use the batch command, you do not have to manually type as many commands. Part two loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); To complete the procedure described in this section, you must be logged on as an administrator, or an administrative user (a user who has an account in the Administrators group). If you are using Windows XP Home Edition, you can log on as an administrative user. If you log on as an administrator, you must first start Windows XP Home Edition in Safe mode. To start the Windows XP Home Edition computer in Safe mode, follow these steps.
  1. Click Start, click Shut Down (or click Turn Off Computer), click Restart, and then click OK (or click Restart).
  2. Press the F8 key.

    On a computer that is configured to start to multiple operating systems, you can press F8 when you see the Startup menu.
  3. Use the arrow keys to select the appropriate Safe mode option, and then press ENTER.
  4. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, use the arrow keys to select the installation that you want to access, and then press ENTER.
In part two, you copy the registry files from their backed up location by using System Restore. This folder is not available in Recovery Console. Before you start this procedure, you must change several settings to make the folder visible:
  1. Start Windows Explorer.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Folder options.
  3. Click the View tab.
  4. Under Hidden files and folders, click to select Show hidden files and folders, and then click to clear the Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check box.
  5. Click Yes when the dialog box that confirms that you want to display these files appears.
  6. Double-click the drive where you installed Windows XP to display a list of the folders. If is important to click the correct drive.
  7. Open the System Volume Information folder. This folder is unavailable and appears dimmed because it is set as a super-hidden folder.
  8. Open a folder that was not created at the current time. You may have to click Details on the View menu to see when these folders were created. There may be one or more folders starting with "RPx under this folder. These are restore points.
  9. Open one of these folders to locate a Snapshot subfolder. The following path is an example of a folder path to the Snapshot folder: C:\System Volume Information\_restore{D86480E3-73EF-47BC-A0EB-A81BE6EE3ED8}\RP1\Snapshot
  10. From the Snapshot folder, copy the following files to the C:\Windows\Tmp folder:
    • _REGISTRY_USER_.DEFAULT
    • _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SECURITY
    • _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SOFTWARE
    • _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SYSTEM
    • _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SAM
  11. Rename the files in the C:\Windows\Tmp folder as follows:
    • Rename _REGISTRY_USER_.DEFAULT to DEFAULT
    • Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SECURITY to SECURITY
    • Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SOFTWARE to SOFTWARE
    • Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SYSTEM to SYSTEM
    • Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SAM to SAM
These files are the backed up registry files from System Restore. .

Part Three loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); In part three, you delete the existing registry files, and then copy the System Restore Registry files to the C:\Windows\System32\Config folder:
  1. Start Recovery Console.
  2. At the command prompt, type the following lines, pressing ENTER after you type each line: del c:\windows\system32\config\sam

    del c:\windows\system32\config\security

    del c:\windows\system32\config\software
