  • From some quick searching, thats one nasty virus you got there. Just about every discussion seem to end in a complete format solution which for many people is never an option.

     

    Since the virus seems to be selectively disabling common tools which could've potentially removed it, you can try using uncommon tools like process explorer (sysinternals), powershell, etc to terminate the process.

     

    If that doesn't work out, you could try booting in safe mode and then installing some anti-virus like AVG which can run in safe mode to weed it out. I doubt the virus will be able to function properly in safe mode.

     

    There are also plenty of anti-virus solutions that can scan the computer directly from a webservice/activex control such as BitDefender.

     

    If possible, can you provide a detail Hijack! This log of the infected computer?

  • are u giving me just suggestion or you have experience with it ?

  • As I stated before, I do not have first hand experience with this virus. I was just giving you generic suggestions. I never insisted to go as far as to format your PC. That would be the last step and I definitely wouldn't recommend it.

    Try out my other suggestions.

    I find very little information about this virus. I do have some experience in writing low level trojans and viruses. If you could give me the source of the virus, any link or the actual infected file itself, then I can learn more about it by infecting my own computer and possibly come up with some code to remove it.

    You can just e-mail me with the file: jetblazer@jetblazer.com (make sure to package/compress it with winzip or something, else it will most likely get caught in some filters)

  • thank for reply again
    yes you are right i have downloaded one file in zipped format and then run that file
    after that i got this problem
    and i have deleted that source also. it was in exe format which is zipped.
    i think i run that file directly to my computer so that my computer infected badly other wise this kind of impact to computer is not possible directly
    by the way i not remember exactly from where i have downloaded that file but i will search and post here

    i installed bit defender only this antivirus is allowed to install in my system i tried  quick heal also but it is not installed that
    when i scan with bit defender it stopped working after just few files scans


    Regards

  • From what I hear, Ahsan disables any executable after a while. So, any anti-viruses (unless it can run below user mode) will be useless.

    This blog post seems to be just about the only solution to remove the virus permanently: http://techspec-gec.blogspot.com/2008/05/i-caught-you-mr-ahsan-remove-ahsans.html

    The details are a bit fuzzy but there is an exe (SDFix) which apparently removes the virus anyway.

    If it still doesn't work out, can you add me in any IM to discuss this in detail?

    Really, this method functions perfectly. She was not necessary to use method SDFix.
     
    I run avast after use this method and
    Automatically it removed the virus
     
    Warning
    Please, disable System restore and turn off System restore on all drivers.
    Wait many seconds and it again activates the restoration of the system.
    Thanks to all

  • I do have another solution given to me by a friend. He has asked me not to post the solution in public since the author of the virus might be able to find a work around to the problem. If you could give me some way to contact you (e-mail, IM), I'll forward you the solution.

  • Salena,
    wow.. took you two months to finally get rid of it.
    I think most of the computer user must learn how to restart computer in a safe mode.  Most of the viruses (almost all) can be removed using the safe mode boot method.


     Regards,

  • Hello Guys here manually steps for newbi..

    follow these steps to remove Ahsan's virus from your system.

    1. start windows in safe mode in with command prompt.

    2. use RRT Tool to enable run " if disabled". "Search in google"

    3. Enable regediting if disabled with following reg key.

    REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableRegistryTools /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

    4. Open regedit, search and delete all entries with name "Ahsan" , site 110mb.com and Bush.

    5. If your folder option is disabled enable it with following reg key "

        HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Policies\Explorer
        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Policies\Explorer
        Check if a DWORD value named NoFolderOptions exists in the pane on the right hand side of the screen
        Delete it

    6. If you are still unable to view the hidden files, which is disabled by virus, enable it with following proc and key.

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced. Find the value "Hidden" . Rightclick it and modify it to 1. If Key value hidden is not present create it

    7. Check the following registery values and set the values given below in each registery key.

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden\NOHIDDEN]
    "CheckedValue"=dword:02
    "ValueName"="Hidden"
    "DefaultValue"=dword: 02

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHOWALL]
    "CheckedValue"=dword: 01
    "ValueName"="Hidden"
    "DefaultValue"=dword:02


    8. Now enable "show all hidden files / Hidden system files and folders", and search for following files and delete them all.

        system.exe
