Hi tobyo,

Before we are going to deal with the entries of the log I would like to see what we can get rid of in the normal way.

Please create a list of programs that can be removed using Add/Remove Programs
Start HiJackThis. Click "Config"->"Misc Tools"->"Open Uninstall Manager" ->"Save List".
Save the log to a convenient location, and copy it into this thread.

also, FYI, I have windows automatically updated and this happened last night. not sure if this changes anything but thought I'd let you know.

and, it's the "big fish games toolbar" that is the offensive one. and it cannot be removed via add/remove programs. it gives me an error when I tried that.

thank you.

I should also tell you that I have uninstalled and reinstalled Norton Internet Security 2007. I checked with boopme beforehand and he said it would be OK since I already had it (Norton). I was trying to get rid of my persistent Norton error (0x000003EE). alas, I was up and running "normally" for one whole day. the error is back and remains. what Norton has told me is that the error could be caused by additional anti spyware softwares installed on my machine. Interestingly, after I removed these softwares (last year some time)was when I got some spyware that I cannot get rid of! I now think it's a compatability issue and that this version of Norton does not interact well with XP because I had no issues with Norton internet security 2005. Because of this error I have no virus protection. I am still contemplating what to do for security once we get rid of that BFGtoolbar spyware. but offhand, I am thinking of reinstalling the 2005 version and keep the anti spyware software that I have now.

Hi tobyo,

just so I understand, you just want the list of what can be deleted via Hijack this correct? assuming that is the case, here is my list:

You are correct. I don't want to run the risk of deleting a program that will bit me later on, so I will first check out what can be removed the normal way before slicing and dicing.

Big Fish Games Toolbar

What happens when you uninstall by clicking on this title in Add/Remove Software? Can you try uninstalling by doubleclicking on Uninstall.exe in the programs folder? Does that work?

Java 2 Runtime Environment, SE v1.4.2

Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version of Java components and upgrade the application. Beware it is NOT supported for use in 9x or ME and probably will not install in those systems

Ugrading Java:
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6.
  • Scroll down to where it says "The Java Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications".
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
  • The page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation with or without Multi-language and save to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java version.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on the download to install the newest version.
After this please post a new log from HijackThis.

when I try to remove it via add/remove programs a window called "setup" appears with this message: cannot unregister bfgtoolbar.dll

I wasn't sure it was safe to double click on the uninstall.exe in the programs folder. do you think that is safe?

I will do the Java update and then post another log shortly.

You can try to get rid of Norton by uninstalling it with this program http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgen...005033108162039

Afterwards you can reinstall the program and see if the error is gone.


yes, this is exactly what I have done. the error persists. I will not be using Norton internet security 2007 after we get this bfgtoolbar removed. it does not work well on this computer. the other two PCs here have Windows Vista and neither of those machines have ever had this error that persists on this machine. which makes me think it's a compatability issue with Windows XP.

Hi tobyo,

Run HijackThis, click on "Scan" and check the boxes next to all these items.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Alcmtr] ALCMTR.EXE

Then close all windows, and browsers, except HijackThis. Tell HijackThis to "Fix checked".

Restart your computer and post a new log in this thread.

Let's see if we can find the toolbar files.

Launch Notepad, and copy/paste the box below into a new text file. Save it as Export.bat and save it on your Desktop.

dir c:\bfgtoolbar.dll /s > Output.txt
notepad Output.txt

Locate Export.bat on your Desktop and double-click on it. It will open Notepad with some text in it. Please post the text here.

Hi tobyo,

O4 - HKCU\..\RunOnce: [] C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe http://www.symantec.com/techsupp/servlet/P...000049.000000bb

Are you still remove Norton? I was expecting this entry to be gone. What you can try is reinstall Norton and then after that uninstall it.

Now that we know where the file is we can find out where the rest is. We're going to search for the foldername in the Registry.
Launch Notepad, and copy/paste the box below into a new text file. Save it as Options.txt on your Desktop.

RegSearch Options File

[Search]
bfgtoolbar
[Exclude]

[Options]
Filter=KVDLUI


Download Registry Search and extract it. Doubleclick the icon to run and click on "Import...". Select the file you created above. Don't pick the one in the same folder, unless you've saved it there. Click "OK" and Registry Search will search the Registry and report what it finds. Post that here.

No, I am not going to uninstall Norton. it's my "security" but I have no virus protection I believe because I have anti spyware and I imagine it doesn't like the Hijack This software either. I need a firewall in order to get onto the web. I've already uninstalled and reinstalled and the same Norton error occurs. I need to find a solution to my security issue but was going to wait until I got this damn spyware off my machine.
