Posted 04 March 2005 - 09:15 AM

Hello, can anyone help me to lose these viruses that are in control of my machine.
I have tried Ad-Aware and it will lock up while scanning generally, though when i have tried selective scanning it always locks up at the delete bar. I tried the online scans and they all say I have 70+ items but i cant get at them. Even on hijackthis when I check the trusted zone entries and then rescan, they are there straight away.

I have tried CWSshredder and that reports clear, and I am stuck.

Any help would be appreciated.

Val

Hi

You may want to print out these directions as the Internet will not be available. Please continue with the next step if you run into a problem with the current one. Just be sure to let us know what the problem was when you reply.

This is very important ! Internet Explorer should remain closed during the cleanup. If you open Internet Explorer the fix will fail. (Steps 1 - 8)

Please make sure that you can view all hidden files:
A. On the Tools menu in Windows Explorer, click Folder Options.
B. Click the View tab.
C. Under Hidden files and folders, click Show hidden files and folders.
D. Uncheck Hide extensions for known filetypes and Hide protected operating system files.
How to see hidden files in Windows

Please download About:Buster from here: About:Buster Download. Once it is downloaded extract it to
c:\aboutbuster. We will use that program later in this process. Don't use it yet.

Download Ad-aware SE: here
Install it. When you get the last screen, with the "Finish" button and 3 options, uncheck those three items.
Open AdAware and click the "Check for updates now" link. Close AdAware. Don't use it yet.

Download the cws-hsa.reg file to your desktop. We will use it later.

Step 1:

SKIP

Step 2:

Press control-alt-delete to get into the task manager and end the follow processes if they exist:

APPVK32.EXE
IPTK32.EXE


This is very important ! Internet Explorer should remain closed during the cleanup. If you open Internet Explorer the fix will fail. (Steps 1 - 8)

Step 3:
Run HijackThis!, press "Scan" and tick the boxes next to all these, close all other windows and browsers, then press "Fix Checked" button.

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = res://C:\WINDOWS\hiwqb.dll/sp.html#28129
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = res://C:\WINDOWS\hiwqb.dll/sp.html#28129

O2 - BHO: Class - {C680FC92-CC8D-3933-941C-DB2ADEAD27D8} - C:\WINDOWS\JAVAPQ.DLL

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [IPTK32.EXE] C:\WINDOWS\IPTK32.EXE


Step 4:
Reboot your computer into Safe Mode.

I now need you to delete the following files:

C:\WINDOWS\hiwqb.dll <-- this file
C:\WINDOWS\JAVAPQ.DLL <-- this file
C:\WINDOWS\IPTK32.EXE <-- this file
C:\WINDOWS\APPVK32.EXE <-- this file

If you get an error when deleting a file, right click on the file and check to see if the read only attribute is checked. if it is, uncheck it and try again.

Step 5:

Double-click on the cws-hsa.reg file you saved earlier on your desktop, and when it prompts to merge say Yes, and this will clear some registry entries left behind by the process.

Step 6:

This is the step where we will use About:Buster that you had downloaded previously.

Navigate to the c:\aboutbuster directory and double-click on aboutbuster.exe When the tool is open press the OK button, then the Start button, then the OK button, and then finally the Yes button. It will start scanning your computer for files. If it asks if you would like to do a second pass, allow it to do so.

When it completed move on to step 7.

Step 7:

Run AdAware, press the Start button, uncheck Scan for negligible risk entries, select Scan Volume for ADS and press Next. Let AdAware remove anything it finds.

Run AdAware again, press the "Start" button, uncheck "Scan for negligible risk entries", select "Perform full system scan" and press "Next". Let AdAware remove anything it finds.

Step 8:

Clean out temporary and Temporary Internet Files. Go to Start -> Run and type in the box: cleanmgr. Let it scan your system for files to remove. Make sure these 3 are checked and then press *ok* to remove:

Temporary Files
Temporary Internet Files
Recycle Bin

Step 9:
Reboot your computer back to normal mode so that we can restore files that were deleted by this infection:
  • This infection deletes the windows file, shell.dll.
    If you are using XP,2000, or NT please download shell.dll from here: shell-dll.zip. Once the file is downloaded uncompress the zip file and copy shell.dll to the following locations (%windir% being the windows or winnt directory):

    %windir%\system32
    %windir%\system
  • If you are using Windows 98*Grinler please download shell.dll from here: shell-dll98.zip. Once the file is downloaded uncompress the zip file and copy shell.dll to the following locations (%windir% being the windows or winnt directory):

    %windir%\system
  • Download the Hoster from here. Press Restore Original Hosts and press OK. Exit Program. This will restore the original deleted Hosts file.
  • If you have Spybot S&D installed you will also need to replace one file. Go here: SDHelper.zip and download SDHelper.dll. Copy the file to the folder containing you Spybot S&D program (normally C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy). Then click Start -> Run -> type regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy\SDHelper.dll and press the OK button
Step 10:

Download the inf file (right click the link below --> Save Target As) and save it to your desktop.
http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/DelDomains.inf
Right-click on the deldomains.inf file on your desktop and select 'Install'

Please check Internet Explorer settings:
Open Internet Explorer - > Tools -> Internet Options ... -> click the Security tab -> click Internet icon -> press the Custom Level ,,, button.
Under ActiveX controls and plug-ins tick:
- Download signed ActiveX controls - Prompt
- Download unsigned ActiveX controls Disable
- Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe Disable
- Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins Enabled
- Script ActiveX controls marked safe for scripting Prompt

Run an online antivirus scan at:
http://housecall.antivirus.com/
Please make sure that AutoClean is checked.

Reboot and post a new HJT log.
Everyday is virus day. Do you know where your recovery CDs are ?
Did you create them yet ?

Hi, thanks for the reply, ufortunately had many problems. heres what happened:-

Step 2 Appvk32.exe wasnt in close program list

Step 3 04 iptk32.exe wasnt there?

Step4 C:\windows\javapq.dll wasnt listed, I did a search and no entry was found

Step5 No prompt to merge was offered, I got "are you sure you want to enter these etc etc and i said yes and then asked for confirm and i said yes again

step6 tried running aboutbuster from c:\aboutbuster\aboutbuster.exe and got the error message "runtime error 339: msComCtl.ocx or a dependancy is not correctly registererd. a file is missing or invalid.

step7 first scan OK had 3 entries and it deleted/quarantined them. Second scan got to teh performing conditional scans and froze with the busy bar at about66% of the way through. Had a look at the logfile and there was a command #1 performed?? Dont know if that was me stopping it or something else. At the time AdAware had found 42 critical objects - 6 Reg Keys, 33 regvalues and 2 files.

Step 8 No problem - ran a HJT scan and everything was back again so stopped there.
HJT log below.

Sorry I didnt get very far, but any further ideas you have would be appreciated.

Had a few problems, but worked round them I think.

Firstly, did a HJT log as soon as I switched on and there were 16 entries in the 04 section instead of the previous 4. As they were the ones that you asked me to delete, I treated the 16 as you had told me to treat the 4 (hope that was right). AdAware still hung at the same place, so I cancelled it and started again, stopping it everytime there were critical objects and quarantined them then stared again. It took 5 goes but eventually got all the way through without hanging. Only slight worry was that previously there were 41 ctitical entries and in total I only deleted 38 bit by bit?

However on a positive note, I think that it is cured now. When I started IE it went to google instead of about:blank and HJt log shows no new entries. I think it is all clear and would like to thank you most sincerely for your help, I will check back in case you spot anything else.

Thankyou

Val
