Hi, new to this site, but *very* cool! I have used both SpyBot and Ad-Aware in the past, but have just read your tutorials on each and have run the latest copies with updates, following your tutorials, and for the first time am confident that I got the most out of each.

Unfortunately they didn't fix my computer, so here's a HJT log, thank you thank you thank you, you are providing a truly outstanding service, and I am completely grateful!

Hi gwelliso,

There are a number of steps you need to take in order to clean your machine. Please carry out the steps in the order they are given. You may find it helpful to print these instructions out as you will not have access to the Internet whilst you are running in Safe mode.

Please read through all of the steps first to ensure you understand what I'm asking you to do. If you have any questions, please ask before you start the fixes.
  • You have a SdBot.MD virus infection. Please go to F-Secure, download and run the removal tool.

  • Download System Security Suite here:
    System Security Suite Download & Tutorial. Unzip it to your desktop.
    Install the program. Don't use it yet.

  • Please make sure that you can view all hidden files. Instructions on how to do this can be found here:
    How to see hidden files in Windows

  • Download the stand-alone version of CWShredder from Download LinkThe Intermute website will open and in the box in the center of the page there is another hyperlink named Download the stand-alone version of CWShredder. Click on that and you will be asked where you wish to save it. Choose a suitable folder and the program will be saved there. When the download has finished close that web page.

    REBOOT into SafeMode: Starting your computer in Safe mode, use the F8 method.

    Make sure all browser windows are closed, go to the folder where you saved cwshredder and double click on cwshredder.exe to start the program. Then click on the FIX button (not the "Scan only" button) and let it scan and fix your computer.

  • Run HijackThis
    Click on the Scan button and when complete
    Put a check beside all of the items listed below

    • R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://find-on-the-net.com/search.htm

      O4 - HKCU\..\RunOnce: [Srv32 spool service] C:\WINDOWS\System32\spoolsrv32.exe

    Close all open Explorer windows and browsers
    Click on the "Fix Checked" button
    When complete and all files removed, close the application

  • Please delete the following files or folders (delete item in bold). Please do not be concerned if
    any of the items are not found as they may have been automatically removed by actions I had
    you take earlier in the cleaning process.C:\Program Files\IESearchToolbar
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\desktop.exe >>> File Only
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\tibs3.exe >>> File Only
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\spoolsrv32.exe File Only
  • Close all windows and browsers that are open.
    Clean out Temporary Folders and Temporary Internet Files as follows:
    • Open System Security Suite that I had you download earlier.
    • In the Items to Clear tab check:
      - Internet Explorer (left pane): Cookies & Temporary files
      - My Computer (right pane): Temporary files & Recycle Bin
    Click the Clear Selected Items button.
    Close the program.

  • Reboot your machine in normal mode, run HijackThis and post a new log here for review.

penmore, thanks for the help! I have followed your instructions precisely and have posted the new HJT log below. A couple of comments, don't know if this will be helpful:

When I ran the F-Secure utility, it said this:

W32/Sdbot Removal Tool ver 1.00.1
Copyright <c> 2004, F-Secure Corporation. All rights reserved.

Infected process was not found in memory
Scan hard drives and remove all infected files. Please wait.
No infection found

press any key to exit ...


When I ran the CWShredder, it looked for 51 files (such as CWS.MSconfd) and found none of them present, then it said this:

Restoring Internet Explorer pages - 0 Restored
Restoring hidden Internet Explorer options tabs - Done
Removing HOSTS file redirections - None infected
CoolWebSearch was not found on this system


I have the CWShredder log, let me know if you want me to post it.

When I ran HJT while in safe mode, these were not on the system:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [desktop] C:\WINDOWS\System32\desktop.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [desktop] C:\WINDOWS\System32\desktop.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [desktop] C:\WINDOWS\System32\desktop.exe


Finally, when I rebooted to normal mode, in between the logon prompt and getting to the desktop I got an error:

Windows cannot find C:\WINDOWS\system32\spoolsrv32.exe...

I do realize I deleted this file, but something's still looking for it. Here's the new HJT log:

Hi gwelliso,

Thanks for the information. The spoolsrv32.exe file is related to a W32.HLLW.Gaobot.AG infection and it could be that a registry entry is causing the message that you are getting. Lets try running the Symantec Removal Tool and see if that will clear things up. Download and run the tool from the link then reboot your machine and let me know if you are still getting the message.

penmore, that seems to have done it, it didn't come back after a reboot. However, when I ran the utility, it said "W32.Gaobot has not been found on your computer."

Also, my desktop is still replaced with C:\WINDOWS\Web\desktop.html

Thanks!
George

Hi gwelliso,

The reason it said that there was no virus found was probably that it couldn't locate the file we had deleted. I'm assuming that your desktop problem has been there from the start so let's try this:
  • Go to Start >>> Control Panel >>> Display >>> Desktop >>> Customize Desktop button >>> choose Web tab. You should then see an entry in the Web Pages box that is ticked next to C:\WINDOWS\Web\desktop.html. Untick this and click OK and close the open windows. That should remove the hijacked desktop.

  • Run HijackThis and post a new log, letting me know if the problem is cured and whether your machine is ok.

Hi gwelliso,

Your log looks clean, well done with the fixes !! I'll leave this thread open for a few days just in case anything else turns up.

I know you have some of the prevention/removal software already installed however, I have itemized below my full list of prevention and removal measures that will best ensure that your machine stays clean. Could I suggest that you look at updating your operating system with the latest critical updates as a first priority, this will ensure that any vulnerable areas are patched and it will reduce the chances of re-infection, the link to the Microsoft site is listed below.

Please take the time to review the list and implement any of the software or settings that you don't have already.
  • Disable and Enable System Restore. - If you are using Windows ME or XP then you should disable and reenable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point. You can find instructions on how to enable and reenable system restore here:Renable system restore with instructions from tutorial above.

  • Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    • From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    • Click once on the Security tab
    • Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    • Click once on the Custom Level button.
      • Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
      • Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
      • Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
      • Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
      • Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
      • Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
      • When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
      • If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
    • Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
  • Use an AntiVirus Software - It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future.
    See this link for a listing of some online & their stand-alone antivirus programs:Virus, Spyware, and Malware Protection and Removal Resources
  • Update your AntiVirus Software - It is imperative that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

  • Use a Firewall - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is susceptible to being hacked and taken over. I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.
    For a tutorial on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:Understanding and Using Firewalls
  • Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit Windows Update Site regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

  • Install Spybot - Search and Destroy - Install and download Spybot - Search and Destroy with its TeaTimer option. This will provide realtime spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection. You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software.
    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware , Malware, and Hijackers
  • Install Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware. You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software in conjunction with Spybot.
    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware, Malware, & Hijackers from Your Computer
  • Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.
    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware and Malware
  • Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.
