Posted 02 October 2007 - 11:43 PM

Accidentally downloaded trojan; killav. Have tried to run what programs I can Spybot, Ad-awareSE; AVG, etc. IE won't let me update them from the net unless they have an auto update in their programs like Spybot. I was able to clean it up some; Norton "partially" removed it, but taskbar, control panel, microsoft securty, etc still disabled.

My daughter does her homework for school on this computer so I have to get this cleaned up fast. I've done it well in the past and have no problem making changes to registry, etc, but I'm tired and cranky and don't have time for this anymore. Am attaching log if you can help. If not, I'll take it in; it needs memory updates anyway.

Thank you!!!

Hello,

* Please download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri)

* Reboot into Safe Mode`: ( without networking support !)
°To get into the Safe mode as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key". Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.

* Doubleclick SmitFraudFix to start the tool.
Select option #2 - Clean by typing 2 and press "Enter" to delete infected files.

(Warning : running option #2 will set your desktop background blank again. But you can reapply your desktop background again afterwards

You will be prompted : "Registry cleaning - Do you want to clean the registry ?"; answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter" in order to remove the Desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection.

The tool will now check if wininet.dll is infected. You may be prompted to replace the infected file (if found); answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter".

The tool may need to restart your computer to finish the cleaning process; if it doesn't, please restart it into Normal Windows.
A text file will appear onscreen, with results from the cleaning process.

Post the log from smitfraudfix in your next reply together with a new hijackthislog.
The report can also be found at the root of the system drive, usually at C:\rapport.txt

Hi again

Followed the instructions. I now have my control panel and task manager back and can access the properties in MY Computer. I did run into one issue while running the Smithfraudfix. When it asked if I wanted my registry cleaned, I typed Y for yes and Microsoft disc cleaner started running. At the same time, I got a warning box that access to the registry was disabled by the system administrator. I cancelled the disk clean right away and according to the log, the registry was cleaned, so I just rebooted as instructed and ran the Hijackthis tool. I was never asked if I wanted to have the wininet.dll file checked? I don’t know if that’s still a problem or not.

I installed Sygate Personal Firewall (was reading some info on Bleeping Computer) when I first realized what I’d done to prevent information from going in and out of the computer if I could. I’m now getting pop-up after pop-up every time I start an action asking if I want to allow it. Problem is; all of the information it’s asking me is in “computer speak” so I don’t know when I should or shouldn’t allow the function? Looking at the details isn’t any better. As soon as I boot up (I have DSL internet) I get this notice:
Generic Host Process for Win32 Services (svchost.exe) is trying to broadcast to {239.255.255.250}using remote port 1900 (SSDP –Simple Service Discovery Protocol} Do you want to allow this program to access the network?

Seeing as I don’t know what svchost.exe is……..so I took a shot in the dark. It seems I will have to allow every little function from the moment I boot in order to do anything?? I also got a warning while I was trying to run live update for Norton. I couldn’t tell if it wanted permission to access their network to update or what??

Is this firewall a good idea or should I rely on the Windows firewall? Also, do you suggest I use Foxfire instead of IE?

Oh, one other thing. The system is not finding a printer file when I boot up.
So many questions….so little nowledge. I gotta take some computer classes!!!

In any case, there are the two logs and thanks you, again, so much!!!! My mother thanks you, my father thanks you, my sister thanks you……
Okay…so if you don’t get that, I’ve just seriously dated myself!!!! :-o

Hi,

It wasn't such a good idea to install a firewall while you already are infected... This because, in case you don't really know how to properly use it, it will ask access for everything including making connection with malware related files, so it would only be confusing for you what to allow or not. In general, allow anything you know and block what you don't know.
I would have installed Comodo firewall instead of Sygate, especially in your case since you don't really know how to use a firewall. Comodo firewall is easier to configure.

In anyway, do not perform any steps in between I didn't ask you, because this is really confusing. A priority is here to get rid of malware first.... and we're not finished here yet.
Also, please don't disable things with autoruns as well, because if you disable them, they won't show in your log, so I cannot tell you what to delete either, since they are not showing. Malware related startups should get deleted, not disabled.
So please enable everything you had disabled previously with autoruns.

Then,

* Start HijackThis, close all open windows leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following:

F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\printer.exe
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {02478D38-C3F9-4efb-9B51-7695ECA05670} - (no file)
O7 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System, DisableRegedit=1
O20 - AppInit_DLLs: C:\WINDOWS\system32\sulimo.dat
O24 - Desktop Component 0: (no name) - (no file)


* Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.
Make sure your Internet Explorer is closed when you click Fix Checked!

Then, * Download: HostsXpert
Unzip hoster to an own folder, eg C:\HostsXpert
Start HostsExpert.exe, click 'Restore MS Hosts file' and click OK.


Then, * Download Combofix to your desktop.

In case you have used Combofix before, please delete the version you are having and redownload it again, because Combofix is being updated everyday.

In case your Antivirus or any other realtime scanner is displaying an alert after you downloaded Combofix or while you use Combofix, please disable your scanner and redownload Combofix again. Because some scanners may see some combofix related components as suspicious and block or delete them while there's nothing wrong with them.


* Doubleclick combofix.exe
Follow the prompts.
Don't click on the window while the fix is running, because that will cause your system to hang.

When finished and after reboot (in case it asks to reboot), combofix will open again to gather the necessary information for the log. This may take a bit. When done, Combofix will close and a log should open, combofix.txt.
Post the contents of this log in your next reply together with a new hijackthislog.
Do NOT post the ComboFix-quarantined-files.txt - unless I ask you to.

I think you may have misunderstood me; I downloaded Sygate BEFORE starting my posts. I went into Bleeping Computer when I discovered what I'd downloaded and understood from the explanation that my security info (passwords, financial, etc) may be at risk. There was a suggestion in the information I was reading that my Windows XP Firewall would only be adequate in stopping information from coming in but not going out; thus the recommendation to use another firewall (see Preparation Guide for Use Before Posting A Hijack This Log @ the Bleeping Computer home page) Since those were the steps they recommended, those are the ones I followed. I am only allowing those functions I recognize. If you are suggesting I remove it when we're finished, I will do so.

In addition, I did not disable anything after running your first fix suggestion and posting the Hijack This log. I did, however, dowload the updates for my other security programs (AdWare AE, AVG, etc) now that I can do so and ran those again afterwards. If this caused a problem, I'm sorry for the inconvenience. I'll follow your instructions without running anything further until this is resolved.

Thank you, again, for your assistance.

Here are the Combofix and new HiJackThis Logs respectively:

Hi,

Yes, I misunderstood you there :thumbsup:

Check and fix next entries in HijackThis:

O2 - BHO: (no name) - AutorunsDisabled - (no file)
O4 - Global Startup: AutorunsDisabled

* Go to start > control panel > Display properties > Desktop > Customize Desktop... > Web tab
Select everything you find in there (except for "My current home page") and press the delete button on the right.
Hit ok below > apply in previous window.

* Go to start > run and copy and paste next command in the field:

ComboFix /u

Make sure there's a space between Combofix and /
Then hit enter.

This will uninstall Combofix, delete its related folders and files, reset your clock settings, hide file extensions, hide the system/hidden files and resets System Restore again.

Let me know in your next reply how things are now.

Hello again

Have run the last instructions and everything appears to be running well. The only thing I appeared to have lost in the shuffle is my Shortcut Bar, but, if I recall properly, I had to reinstall it after I got Windows XP. I don't think I'll miss it, though.

Have also figured out most of the Sygate popups and have allowed it to run those I need (Live Update, my Home Page etc) without asking me anymore. So the system is booting up a little faster. (I know it's running slow b/c I have to update memory. I also have Norton configured to scan every little nook and cranny when I boot up JUST to cover my bootie)
Do you need another log? If not, thanks for all your help.

I do have one final request. Do you still recommend I use something other than Sygate? Also, there are a number of programs I've downloaded to use when I need assistance from Bleeping Computer (I crashed three years ago...and I mean CRASHED...BLACK SCREEN OF DEATH....C: prompt and nothing more. But you guys helped me get it back up (with the assistance of a friend who helped me reload Windows and was uploading and downloading the hijack logs and instructions for me)

Anyway, I now have a host of programs for adware, spyware, malware, you-name-it-ware. The list consists of:
Adware AE
AVG
Registryfix
Spybox S&D
Stinger
Smitfraudfix
HostXpert.

What do I keep and what do I delete, if anything. Also, I got the distinct impression from some info on BC that IE is probably not a good internet program as it's a fair target for viruses, etc. and that FireFox (or is it Foxfire) would be a more beneficial program.

Any suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, again, for all your help.

Hi,

The only thing I appeared to have lost in the shuffle is my Shortcut Bar, but, if I recall properly, I had to reinstall it after I got Windows XP

Not sure what bar you are talking about... Do you mean the Quicklaunch bar next to your start icon on the left?
To enable it again, Right-click on the Taskbar > Toolbars > check Quick Launch.

Anyway, I now have a host of programs for adware, spyware, malware, you-name-it-ware. The list consists of:
Adware AE
AVG
Registryfix
Spybox S&D
Stinger
Smitfraudfix
HostXpert.

Yes they are OK. But you may delete Stinger, Smitfraudfix and HostXpert since you don't need them anymore.
Also, I stronly suggest you get rid of Registryfix.
I do not recommend Registry Cleaners/fixers. This because some may rather damage than cleaning/fixing your registry.
Only use it if you have basic knowledge about the registry and know if a certain key/value is safe to be removed or not. Cleaning the registry won't really improve system performance anyway even though there are a lot of orphaned keys. If registry cleaning was really required, then Microsoft would have added this option in Windows already imho.
So use at your own risk. After all, a corrupted registry is a corrupted Windows.

You may also want to read this thread why Registry Cleaners are not recommended.

I got the distinct impression from some info on BC that IE is probably not a good internet program as it's a fair target for viruses, etc. and that FireFox (or is it Foxfire) would be a more beneficial program.

Yes, Firefox is safer to use, so it may be a good idea to install Firefox and use that as your default browser :thumbsup:

Please read my Prevention page with lots of info and tips how to prevent this in the future.
And if you want to improve speed/system performance after malware removal, take a look here.

Happy Surfing again!
