Using XP pro edition. Cant connect to certain sites such as bebo, symantec panda. Just get a blank screen. Have recently had a zlob dns changer trojan horse that I thought I had removed using smitfraud exe. Spybot and ad aware don't identify anything nor does nod 32. Have added the main txt doc generated by the DSS progran as per instructions but could not find the extra txt that was indicated in the instructions

Welcoming to Bleeping Computer, please be sure you have read and followed the
Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log, Instructions for receiving help in cleaning your computer http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/
All advice given is taken at your own risk.

There is evidence (017 lines in the HJT log) that you are/were hacked by Ukrainians. Before we remove those lines and check for the infection, I would like a look at a fresh Smitfraudfix scan. If you still need help, please do this.

1) Please review the instructions that are also pinned to the top of the forum.

2) If you still have Smitfraudfix onboard, delete it from your computer.

3) http://siri.geekstogo.com/SmitfraudFix.php <<< download Smitfraudfix from here and follow ONLY these directions.

Double-click SmitfraudFix.exe
Select 1 and hit Enter to create a report of the infected files. The report can be found at the root of the system drive, usually at C:\rapport.txt

Note: process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool". It is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

Post only the C:\rapport.txt using Add Reply.


If your issues are resolved, post to let me know so I can close your topic.
