Posted 17 February 2005 - 05:00 PM

I'd been running SpyWareBlaster, McAfee and AdAware regularly, but have aquired a variety of annoyances. I've since run Spybot S+D, and XCleaner with and without system restore disabled and problems persist with reboot.

A redirect plug in attempts to install with each boot. this can be stopped via task manager but continues to be annoying.

McAfee will detect and clean Downloader-PS, and Downloader-UY, and GenBackDoor.o and/or GenBackDoor.gen.b at the boot up (of course their website doesn't id these DLs/troj specifically) Also Dailer-RAS.as is ID'd with a scan and deleted.

Spybot and AdAware will find TIB Browser as a problem after a McAfee scan. Spybot also IDs DSO exploit with each new boot.

Additonal problem with Google\Yahoo search. A search will bring up a page filled with what appear to be other search engine options, going to P2 of the search, then clicking onto page 1 will get you the real search results.

I had a problem with Ceres popups that seems to have resolved.

Any help would be most appreciated. Here is the HJT log:

Hello hirodog,

I am reviewing your log, and will post back shortly.

I noticed you have Hijackthis in a Temp folder.

You need to put HijackThis into its own folder, but not a temp folder. It makes backups and they need to be kept all in one place.

Here is how to make a Hijackthis folder:

Click My Computer, then C:\
In the menu bar, File->New->Folder.
That will create a folder named New Folder, which you can rename to "HJT". Now you have C:\HJT\ folder. Put your hijackthis.exe there.

Please post a new log after you have done this.

Thank you for the quick look. Since then I upgraded to AdAware SE, which caught a lot of new items, but still upon reboot the Downloaders and GenBackDoor.gen.b reappear and the plug in attempts to load. Google search is still compromised.

Here is the new HJT

I forgot one thing that may be related. I somehow have lost the contacts view pane in OExpress. I know how to turn it on and off, but somewhere in the midst of trying to clean out stuff, the contents dissappeared...I watched it go. My address book seems to be fine. The contacts pane is not repopulating either. Have I just missed a simple command menu?

Hello hirodog,

Adaware SE is great, as it took out many of the malware you had on your system. :thumbsup: You have some malware on your computer, but not to worry, we will soon have it off.

****************************************************

How to Reboot into Safe Mode
tap F8 key during reboot, until the boot menu appears...use the arrow keys to choose "Safe Mode" from the menu......,then press the "Enter" key.


Please boot into Safe Mode, go to HijackThis->Config->Misc. Tools->Open process manager. Select the following and click “Kill process” for each (If found).

C:\Documents and Settings\Bob\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\winupdate75156620[1].exe

****************************************************

While in the Safe Mode and select the following with HijackThis.
With all windows (including this one!) closed (close browser/explorer windows), please select "fix.”

****************************************************
Next, we're going on a file hunt.
Go to My Computer and double-click C.
Go to the Tools menu and select 'Folder Options'.
On the 'View' tab select 'show hidden files and folders' and deselect (uncheck) 'hide protected operating system files (recommended)'.

Find and delete each of the following. If you can't delete an item, right-click it and click properties. Make sure 'read-only' is unchecked.
If you still can't delete something, right-click it and rename it to a random word. Then drag the item to a different location. Try deleting it now. If you still can't, be sure to let me know.

Delete the following files/folders in bold:

C:\WINDOWS\cerbmod.dll <==file
C:\WINDOWS\System32\DSMANA~1.DLL <==file
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\winupdate75156620[1].exe <==file

****************************************************
Let empty the temp files:

Download CCleaner and install it. (default location is best).
Select the Windows Tab, Run CCleaner,(click Run Cleaner (bottom right) then, when it finishes scanning click Exit.)
When you see "Complete" on the top line, it's done. It's very fast.

****************************************************

Please download, update and run the free A2 (A squared) anti-trojan

Let it fix whatever it wants to.

****************************************************

I know you may have anti-virus software, but sometimes its definitions are corrupted due to malware. Online scans are the best resort in this case.
Run this pc through the
Trend Micro Housecall Online virus scanner
or Panda Scan Online virus scanner

****************************************************

Finally, reboot and post a new Hijackthis log, and tell me how your
computer is running.


I somehow have lost the contacts view pane in OExpress. I know how to turn it on and off, but somewhere in the midst of trying to clean out stuff, the contents dissappeared...I watched it go. My address book seems to be fine. The contacts pane is not repopulating either. Have I just missed a simple command menu?


Sorry, but I do not use OExpress and cannot help you with it. Lets see if fixing the malware also fixes OExpress. If it does not work after we fix the malware, then I suggest you post a message on one of our boards.

Hello Again,
Ran thru your steps with general success, a few things were a bit diff from your description or couldn't be found. I certainly pleased with the result. Google is back to normal and Ive rebooted 3 times with no recurrence. I was unsure of whether or not to disable sys restore. Since I'd seen adv elsewhere to disable, that's what I did.

Step 1 - HJT did not show the winupdate....exe in the Process Mgr

Step 2 - fixed all except 016 DPF.........meInstaller.exe, I left the dpf that did contain most of the numbers, etc. but was assc with Quicktime, just different enuff to have me hold off on fixing.

Step 3 - couldn't find the indicated files either manually or via search...I assumed this was a good thing.

Step 4- IE wouldn't bring up any pages while in SafeMode. I already had il SystemWiper, so I ran that.

Rebooted normally, downloaded and ran A2 which fixed one item, Housecall found nothing. Neither did AAwareSE.

Contacts did not come back in OE, I'll look for help in the appro forum

Let me know if you think the 016 item should still be fixed. THANK YOU!

Hello hirodog,

meInstaller.exe, I left the dpf that did contain most of the numbers, etc. but was assc with Quicktime


If you want to leave it you can. It's OK, but isn't required. If you delete it, it will return again next time you update QuickTime.

The log looks clean, congratulations! :thumbsup: Good job on the cleanup!

Please read and follow Groovicus' Guide to Simple PC Security to help keep yourself from becoming infected again, as well as
How did I get infected?, With steps so it does not happen again!
