Default Windows Server 2003 Virus? Constant Email spam

Hey there,

I keep getting notifications from my ISP saying that I have been sending out thousands of emails over the course of just a few hours. I have been in contact with them and narrowed it down to be my server. Could anyone have a look at my hijackthis log and let me know if they see anything funky going on? Thanks alot in advance..

Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2
Scan saved at 3:18:11 PM, on 9/30/2009
Platform: Windows 2003 SP2 (WinNT 5.02.3790)
MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.6000.16876)
Boot mode: Normal

EDITED: Inline HJT log removed - READ & RUN ME FIRST GUIDE not followed.

Forum Rules and Guidelines
  • Please DO NOT post HJT logs in a thread!
  • This is not a HijackThis log reading forum. It is a Malware Removal forum which means you must run this standard cleaning procedure. See the pinned/sticky threads!!!!
  • HijackThis logs while useful, do not conclusively tell you if a PC has malware or not.
  • Do not post any logs directly inline with your messages!
  • Do not bump or add additional posts to your thread because any post is a bump and it will delay you getting an answer!!
  • See this:Don't Bump! It Only Hurts You!!!
Please follow the instructions in the below link:

READ & RUN ME FIRST. Malware Removal Guide

and attach the requested logs when you finish these instructions.
  • **** If something does not run, write down the info to explain to us later but keep on going. ****
  • Do not assume that because one step does not work that they all will not. MGtools will frequently run even when all other tools will not.
  • After completing the READ & RUN ME and attaching your logs, make sure that you tell us what problems still remain ( if any still do )!
Helpful Notes:

  1. If you run into problems trying to run the READ & RUN ME or any of the scans in normal boot mode, you can run the steps in safe boot mode but make sure you tell us what you did later when you post logs. See the below if you do not know how to boot in safe mode:
  2. If you have problems downloading on the problem PC, download the tools and the manual updates for SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes ( links are given in the READ & RUN ME) onto another PC and then burn to a CD. Then copy them to the problem PC. You will have to skip getting updates if (and only if) your internet connection does not work. Yes you could use a flash drive too but flash drives are writeable and infections can spread to them.
  3. If you cannot seem to login to an infected user account, try using a different user account (if you have one) in either normal or safe boot mode and running only SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes while logged into this other user account. Then reboot and see if you can log into the problem user account. If you can then run SUPERAntiSpyware, Malwarebytes, ComboFix and MGtools on the infected account as requested in the instructions.
  4. To avoid additional delay in getting a response, it is strongly advised that after completing the READ & RUN ME you also read this sticky:
Any additional post is a bump which will add more delay. Once you attach the logs, your thread will be in the work queue and as stated our system works the oldest threads FIRST.
