    It is something like "У меня всё в порядке" or simply "Хорошо"

    Well......translating it word for word means я делаю хорошо , you're right vbouldr, but as a reply to the question "how are you doing?" it means what MasterAdmin posted.
    Пораскинул мозгами, теперь собираюсь с мыслями.

    Perhaps the best equivalent of "I'm doing well" is "Я поживаю хорошо". But if you look at it in context then "Хорошо" will suffice:

    - How are you going?
    - I'm doing well.

    - Как дела? or Как поживаете?
    - Хорошо.

    Есть такая шутка:
    How are you doing?
    All right!

    Как вы это делаете?

    As in "Liar, Liar" Jim Carrey's character answers:
    -How is it hanging?
    - Short and to the left
