Hi rtbasto and welcome to the BC forums. It appears that there is some information missing from the log file that you posted. Please follow the directions below and post a complete log back to this topic using the Add Reply button.

We need a HijackThis (HJT) log file to be able to analyze what is happening on your computer. If you do not have a copy of HijackThis or do not have the latest version (1.99.1) then download it from here: HijackThis_sfx.exe. Double-click on the file you just downloaded and click on the UnZip button to install the program.

Start HijackThis and click the Do a system scan and save a log button to perform a scan and create a log file. When the scan is complete, Notepad will open up with the log file in it. While in Notepad, press Ctrl-A to select all text and then Ctrl-C to copy the text to the clipboard.

Hello again rtbasto. It looks like we have a few items to clean up. Please proceed with the following steps in order.

Step #1

Start HijackThis and follow these steps:* Click on Config button
* Click on the Misc Tools button
* Click on the Open Process Manager button
Find the following items and click on each one to select it and then click on the Kill Process button to stop the process.:C:\WINDOWS\System32\m?config.exe
Step #2

Now click the HijackThis Scan button to perform a scan. Look for the following items and click in the checkbox in front of each item to select it:R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page =
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,SearchAssistant = http://www.seekerbar.com/ie.aspx?tb_id=50154
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,CustomizeSearch = res://C:\PROGRA~1\Toolbar\toolbar.dll/sa
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = http://www.seekerbar.com/ie.aspx?tb_id=50154
O2 - BHO: MyQuickSearch Search Assistant BHO - {04011C11-2F3B-44ed-977C-270CA669C6B2} - C:\Program Files\MyQuickSearch\SrchAstt\1.bin\MQSSRCAS.DLL (file missing)
O2 - BHO: mqsBar BHO - {0E677221-E309-4341-81BD-3CC3018BF5B3} - C:\Program Files\MyQuickSearch\bar\1.bin\MQSBAR.DLL (file missing)
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {A91BECBC-7E27-55FC-2626-70C2BB551492} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\ivpsf.dll
O3 - Toolbar: My &Quick Search - {0E677229-E309-4341-81BD-3CC3018BF5B3} - C:\Program Files\MyQuickSearch\bar\1.bin\MQSBAR.DLL (file missing)
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Hyjiix] C:\WINDOWS\System32\m?config.exe
Now close ALL open windows except HijackThis and click the Fix Checked button to finish the repair.

Step #3

We need to make sure all hidden files are showing so please:
  • Click Start.
  • Open My Computer.
  • Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
  • Select the View tab.
  • Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
  • Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
  • Click Yes to confirm.
  • Click OK.
Find the following files/folders and delete them (don't worry if they are already gone):C:\PROGRAM FILES\Toolbar\ <--folder
C:\Program Files\MyQuickSearch\ <--folder
C:\WINDOWS\System32\ivpsf.dll

Next, let's clean up the temporary folders:* Click Start
* Point to Programs
* Point to Accessories
* Point to System Tools
* Click Disk Cleanup
* Select the following items that are present and then click the OK button.* Temp Setup Files
* Downloaded Program Files
* Temp Internet Files
* Debug Dump Files
* Office Setup Files
* old chkdsk files
* Recycle Bin
* Temp Remote Desktop Files
* Setup Log Files
* Temp Files
* WebClient temp files
[/list]Step #4

Start Notepad and copy/paste the text from the quotebox below into the new document:

dir C:\WINDOWS\System32\m?config.exe /a h > files.txt notepad files.txt


Save the document to your desktop as findfile.bat and close Notepad. Locate the findfile.bat file and double-click on it to run it. Notepad should open up with a new log file in it. Save this file and copy/paste the contents into your next post along with a new HijackThis log.

Step #5

OK. Reboot your computer normally, start HijackThis and perform a new scan. Post your new log file back here along with the information from the previous step using the Add Reply button and I will review it when it comes in.

If possible, do not shutdown or reboot your computer again until I have a chance to review the new information and respond back to you.

Here is my new log. Also, do I need to hide my folders and hide protected operating system files. And I found C:\program files\myquicksearch\, but I found them through a file search, all were dated 8/10/04. Should I still delete them? Lastly, I did the notebook on my desk top but it didn't do a log when I double clicked. Did I do something wrong? Thank you for all your help. You are a life saver.

Hi rtbasto. We will get to re-hiding and folders in our cleanup when we are finished. I didn't understand what you meant by you found the c:\program files\myquicksearch folder through a file search. What I would like you to do is delete the entire folder, not just the individual files. Open Windows Explorer and navigate to c:\program files. In the right-hand pane click on the MyQuickSearch directory and press the Del key.

When you ran the findfiles.bat, is there a file named files.txt in the directory (if you put it on the desktop then the find.txt file should be on the desktop too)? You have a questionable file named m?config.exe that I want to see the details on and the informaition should be in that file. Please post the contents of the find.txt file back here.

Cheers.

I think this is what you want. Sorry it took me so long. Do you need another scan as well?

Hi rtbasto. Yes that was the information I was looking for. The file it shows is a bad file and should be deleted.

Find the following files/folders and delete them (don't worry if they are already gone):m?config.exe (or a file with the like name m?config.exe that has a strange character in the 2nd position and whose creation date is 03/17/2005 07:08 AM and is 417,792 in size)
As for your log, it is clean. Good job! We have a couple of last steps to perform and then you're all set.

First, let's reset your hidden/system files and folders. System files are hidden for a reason and we don't want to have them openly available and susceptible to accidental deletion.* Click Start.
* Open My Computer.
* Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
* Select the View tab.
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading UNSELECT Show hidden files and folders.
* CHECK the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm.
* Click OK.
Next, let's clean your restore points and set a new one:

Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove infected files that have been backed up by Windows. The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programs from changing those files. This is the only way to clean these files: (You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected)1. Turn off System Restore.On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.
2. Restart your computer.

3. Turn ON System Restore.On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
UN-Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.
[/list]System Restore will now be active again.

Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programs: SpywareBlaster, SpywareGuard and IESpy-Ad. They will add 1000's of sites to your resticted zone and block some hijacks from happening.

You should also have a good firewall like ZoneAlarm or Kerio Personal Firewall (both are free) and a good anti-virus application like the one you are currently using. It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.

To keep your system up to date and clean visit Windows Update monthly, run AdAware SE and Spybot Search & Destroy weekly, and be aware of what emails you open and websites you visit.

To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet read this article by Tony Klien: So how did I get infected in the first place?

Have a safe and happy computing day!
